Pros: You can easily submit feedback for feature enhancements and customer service responds quickly when you have questions or issues. They also follow up on your feedback which gives you a feeling they are actually taking your suggestions into consideration.

Cons: The ATS could provide a keyword searchable resume database to make capturing resumes worthwhile for future opportunities as opposed to just existing openings.

GHire is very intuitive, fast and seamlessly integrates gmail and google calendar.

Pros: Seamless integration with gmail and the calendar there by reducing time and duplication of efforts. This was one of our biggest challenge with our previous ATS and GHire solved it for us.

Search functionality within the app is great and fast.

Cons: May be more features and more flexibility (like customising forms and email notifications) should be added.

Google Hire is an excellent ATS to help me and my team keep on top of open positions and candidates.

Pros: I absolutely love the ease of use. It completely makes sense how they built it and is such a nice experience for the user. Nothing about it is really complicated and it lives up to the high Google standards. Whether it's an open role, a new candidate or an existing candidate, email templates or other automated features - everything is easily accessible and beautiful to manage. It makes our daily work easier and everything is completely organized. Plus the automated features such as email templates to reject a candidate or scheduling an interview with a few clicks are incredible. We've tried other ATS's and this is a winner!

Cons: Unfortunately the feature where Google Hire posts out open positions to job boards has been limited as they no longer are able to automatically post it out on Indeed for recruiting firms. This is mostly to be blamed on Indeed, but it's still limiting our usage of this software. This feature would have helped us a lot, now we can no longer receive applicants from Indeed unless we pay Indeed directly.

We implemented it for our firm at a time when our hiring needs were expanding.

Pros: The integrations with Google Apps work really well and each new feature makes it even better. It's very easy to navigate, schedule interviews and go through applications and the team is very responsive to feature requests.

Cons: The core application tracking software works really well compared to other options out there. There are no major cons to the software. If anything, I would love to get better visibility on how our job listings are performing across the various job boards.

Pros: Google is an innovator and it shows with this product. Seamless connection between Gmail and Calendar making the Hire platform easy to implement and use throughout the entire company, with minimal training. Additional add-ons through G suite that continue to make recruiting easier every day. Customer service is second to none, with Hire Help the most responsive team I've ever encountered. Questions are usually answered within an hour of submitting a request, and suggestions and recommendations are valued and acted upon.

Cons: Initially had an issue with incorrect time zones being sent to candidates when scheduling interviews causing some confusion, but that issue was worked out quickly.

Overall: A lot of time back in the day, along with a product that gets the hiring manager and their teams more involved in the recruitment process.

Pros: I like the design and ease of use. For the most part, things just work and the software is a pleasure to use. There are some issues with bugs here and there, but generally speaking it's a good lite ATS that looks good and works really well.

I would also say that the thing I like the most is their customer service. You can immediately chat with a Google Hire support person, and they're all phenomenal. If they can't resolve my issue, they send it to engineers and get me a solution.

The price is also a huge benefit. 100/mo and we have a few users onboard. The fact that they price by org at such a low rate vs charging by seat is awesome.

The software itself works as you would generally expect a Google product to. It's good looking, easy to implement, and gives you some good options.

Cons: It definitely has some bugs, and what I like least is just that it doesn't have enough features. I really love the software, but there are little things here and there I wish I could change. There are no customizable fields, which seems silly given that every company will likely want to use it a little bit differently.

I also dislike that it is set up only for internal HR teams, but that's not their fault. That is their main target, and we signed up as a recruiting firm just because we love Google products and already use a bunch. Unfortunately there are some annoying difficulties as a result, but for the most part we work around it just fine.

Lastly, the only other con I can think of is that you have no idea what feature is coming down the pipeline at any given moment. If there are things happening, they seem to be slow. We have requested I would say a handful of features, and they always put you on an email list to be notified when it's completed. In the last few months, we haven't been notified of anything being implemented and as far as I can tell nothing in the software really has changed. I suppose it isn't as buggy as it was initially so that's a good thing.

To be fair, who knows! They might just do huge releases every six months or something, then working on fixing all bugs until next release.

Overall: We benefited from Google Hire as it became the book of truth for all of our candidates. An ATS is necessary, and yet we found ourselves struggling and disliking a lot of the alternatives out there. Google Hire is well designed, well integrated into Google products which we use, and for the most part gets the job done of helping us sort/contact/and find candidates.
