Pros: Hired provided a fast, efficient platform for us to engage, communicate and drive a pipeline of highly skilled and motivated engineers. Time and velocity is critical to recruiting in an ever more fragmented and competitive tech market, using hired has provided us with not only a direct channel to aligned talent, but provided insight and advice to maximize our efforts.

Cons: As Hired starts to expand their UK offering, it will allow us to take advantage of the other major digital growth locations in the North. Currently the platform is London-centric

Overall: Historically, our recruitment model relied heavily on incoming applications, leading to excessive conversion rate figures and leakage in recruiter efficiency. Using Hired has helped us reduce our '1st stage Pre-screen Call to Hire' rate by almost 200%, which intern has played a huge role in supporting our growth in business scale and revenue.

Pros: i love the ease of use

although you have to go through a lot of candidates, there are still stars on hired. usually stars don't join platforms but hired has figured this out

Cons: there are a few things.

1) you cannot sort by date added to the platform

2) the quality is hit or miss now versus it being top notch when we first onboarded 2 years ago

3) i wish there were more candidates on the platform in general (more volume)

4) i wish you guys expanded and did even more technical and IT categories

Overall: overall, absolutely love hired. from all of the technical recruiting tools out there, hired is by far my favorite and always the first place i go to for any new roles. there are stars that are on hired.

Pros: Easy to use. Easy to schedule. Mostly serious candidates. Some good candidates. Great support team. Analytics can be helpful.

Cons: In the past 6 months there has been a marked decrease in qualified candidates for small to midstage companies. Sourcing seems to be focused on candidates coming from large enterprise companies and large consulting recruitment agencies. Very few are coming from the web services space and they are not qualified, do not pass our screens which are 100% on point despite their number of years of experience. Ex: Cisco, Visa, GE, Oracle, Salesforce, etc. This is in contrast to a year ago and the multiple years I've been using HIRE before that.

I discoverd that an agency(ies) have been allowed on the platform. This was not proactively disclosed by HIRED. I figured it out on my own. The beauty of this platform is that it is a virtual agency where companies and candidates interface directly without a third party involved. One of the multiple reasons I was given directly from HIRED when I brought this up was "The idea behind this test is to help present our candidates with more job opportunities from employers who are not currently represented on our platform." If a company cannot invest enough of their resources to be on HIRED themselves they shouldn't be on HIRED period. Coming from a 6 person company and investing our resources in HIRED I don't buy this. There are many other reasons communicated in a message to me about this and none of them benefit any employer or candidate on the platform. Third part agencies should have their clients put HIRED. I ran out of space to continue wr..

Overall: Support is excellent as it has been for many years. Candidate quality for small to midsized companies is declining. The UX/UI is great. Scheduling is easy. Third party agencies have no business on the platform. In the spirit of HIRED's goal to be transparent this development, discovered on my end, is anything but transparent. A press release, personal messaging like an email to all companies, explaining that you are signing contracts with third-party recruiting agencies would have been the way to go. However, the companies that are unaware of this might be just as surprised and unsettled as we are.

Pros: I love love love the UX and how clean it is. Please buy champagne for the UX team as soon as this is read. I love that Hired so clean and readable. Please be diligent in adding new feature as it tends to add noise. Less is more.

Cons: There are key concerns around Product and attention to details.

1) Recycled profiles listed as "New Today" when in fact they've been on the platform multiple times. This is a horrible thing to do and erodes faith in the platform. Why give the enterprise customer the same thing over and over? I've been told by Hired to click the 'hide' button but this is not a reasonable solution. It creates friction in the customer experience and ads to the work flow. Not listing previous profiles as "New Today" is a matter of ethics. Hired needs to eliminate this practice or simply add a different label (i.e. "Returning Today".

2) Profiles are not screened for typos on salary. I often see salary numbers that clearly forgot to add the last zero (i.e. $17,000 instead of presumably 170,000).

3) Very negative impact on recruiting workflows when Hired allows candidates future graduation dates. It gives the impression that someone has a degree that they don't really have (i.e. Master's In Computer Science - Graduation 2020).

4) No clear summary of how much $ was spent and when/what results were. Enterprises should have a dashboard that clearly shows YTD spend/hires/offers/interviews.

Overall: Its starting to feel like someone you love might be cheating on you. This is because I love the product and the value but there are key problems that are front and center but nothing is being done about it.

Pros: It is a great source of active candidates.

Cons: It is another place, in addition to LinkedIn, ATS, and email, where I need to communicate with candidates. Though it integrates with gmail and our ATS, it isn't seamless. Candidates expected Hired calendar invites (vs. how we typically schedule candidates in our regular process). I often have to double enter information.

Active candidates move quickly and Hired is very salary/offer focused. As a smaller, mission-driven company it can be difficult to gain the attention of candidates.

The search/filter functionality isn't great when looking through candidates, and I typically get shown the same candidates over and over again.

Overall: We have filled a number of positions thanks to Hired and they helped us ramp our Engineering hiring efforts and grow our business. It is a great complimentary tool but I still think that internally sourcing candidates tends to yield better results with less competition for those candidates.

Pros: Quality candidates

They are open to new opportunities

Cuts sourcing time in half

Make a Recruiters life much easier

Cons: I feel the product needs more work in terms of feature development and usability. They also do need a mobile app. I found bugs in the software frequently and hopefully the Hired QA team can look into this much more.

It would be helpful also if every candidate on there had a resume on their profile vs write ups. This makes it easier for TA/HR Professionals to download resume and upload it to our system vs having to look up the candidate on Linkedin and download their profile as a PDF.

The calendar tool also needs some work.

Overall: Using Hired has helped us find great tech talent, much quicker than regular sourcing and helps us save time. With some improvements and being more innovative and comparable to other tools, Hire can do even more amazing things because the concept is fantastic.

Pros: The software makes it easy to find, communicate, and track status of clients. Over time it has become easier to quickly review dozens of applicants in a setting.

Cons: Two things stand out as areas for improvement - 1. The communication center can be difficult to return to. The initial candidate outrage is easy to initiate, but it is unintuitive and sometimes takes multiple steps to get back to the email thread. 2. Offer a setting to hide salaries - reviewing candidates in an open office setting is problematic if my entire team can see the salaries of the candidates I'm reviewed. Often I have to find a conference room to do my prospecting. Perhaps tie this to diversity setting that turns off names?

Overall: Hired has been a great partner - they are always there to support me. They listen to my feedback and provide assistance that demonstrates understanding of my issues. I'm an advocate for them in my business.

Pros: Overall very happy with Hired. I like being able to see what other interviews candidates have, when searching for suitable candidates, being able to swipe through quickly is useful without having to return to the beginning of the search

Cons: I think it should be standard for candidates to upload a CV along with their profile. A lot of the time profiles are missing useful information that can be found on a CV.

It would also be helpful for all candidates to have to provide availability in their calendars - sometimes waiting for a response to arrange a call can waste a couple of valuable days

Finally, being able to reply from Outlook to messages would be very useful. I spend a lot of time working from my phone when commuting so I can't always log in to Hired.

Pros: There are 2 things I liked about Hired the most. One, how easy it is to use. Two, the customer service. Ali (and Rigis) are super helpful on tracking our hires and movement.

Cons: There are few things I do not like.

1. The quality of engineers has gone down since hired has grown.

2. It took a while to get the feature of having the same question with different locations on your platform. Thank you for doing that!.

3. As a personal thing, Hired turned off our service because we were late signing our new contract. I thought this was not great business since we've been working with you all from the beginning and have made a lot of hires from your platform.

Overall: Overall, I stick with Hired because we make hires from your platform and your customer service is on top of it. Overall, it's a product that works for me and Niantic!

Pros: This software allows you to easily connect with multiple candidates and helps companies quickly fill roles. Gives you easy access to review candidate profiles including resumes as well as chat, schedule interviews, and confirm compensation and requirements right within the platform. If you use an ATS they also integrate with a few of them to make the candidate flow even easier.

Cons: I wish there were business candidates available on the platform for hire as well as the more technical candidates. Would like more transparency around what other companies the candidate is interviewing with and where within their job search process they are.

Overall: I have used Hired off and on at various companies to aid in hiring of technical roles.

Pros: Recruiting is not just one of the most important, but often one is the most difficult functions within a company. Hired provided our company a platform to make things a little easier. Unlike third party recruiters, you can operate on your own time.

Cons: You can make the assumption that all the candidates are actively looking-making the sell process in a buyer's market tougher. That's not a problem with the software-it's just the nature of things. I wish there were more active updates about where the candidate was in other company's processes.

Overall: Hired has the reliability and consistency that most other recruiting agencies don't have. It should be in the toolkit of any startup that has raised at least a Series A.

Pros: The different categories and how they are organized - location, sponsorship, skills, other skills, salary, etc. It's easy to navigate.

Cons: We are no longer able to search on specific titles, and only "software engineering" as a group - which is much too broad. If I search by titles in a boolean search it is too limiting and narrow - it does not capture all of the data.

Overall: Most candidates are worth speaking to (the quality is there) and they seem to be serious in their search.

Pros: Hired is hands-down the #1 sourcing tool for tech recruiters. Candidates are ready to make the move, every detail you could possibly need is right in front of you, and candidates come from top companies all-around. The account management and customer support team are amazing to work with-- responsive, extremely personable, and as hands-on or hands-off as you want them to be. Unlike competitors, Hired has a built in scheduling tool and ATS integration that makes everyones' lives a lot easier. (A New York based competitor advertises this tool, but it does not execute-- the competitor's tool does not push to the correct req, you can't see the candidate profile unless you were the person who requested the interview, and whole bunch of other things that makes things pretty difficult). Hired's platform is the opposite of this. Highly recommended for anyone in recruiting.

Cons: Tech recruiting is competitive any way you put it. Losing candidates because they have other offers is what I probably like least about Hired, but again-- it's a competitive market on and off of the recruiting platforms.

Overall: Hired is amazing-- I have been in recruiting in the SF Bay Area for ~7 years and touched multiple agencies, in-house companies, and every sourcing tool out there along the way. Hired is the best of the best.

Pretty good but still needs work, new candidates need to show up at the top. Internal notes glitchy.

Pros: I like being able to see what candidates are looking for so I can tailor my approach to their needs and see if they would be interested in what we do. I like knowing that they are actively looking.

Cons: I want the new people to show up at the top of my cue. I've already spend gobs of time sifting through the old ones. So many product designers have horrible, outdated portfolios in combination with insane salary asks and thus show up over and over. They show up as new when they've been on a dozen times. I write notes so that I won't be tricked into wasting more time looking at their profiles. Encourage designers to cull all but their best work from portfolios, I don't care that they've made 16 mediocre projects, I want to see 3-6 great ones with a case study and things they learned along the way. I want to see the greatness they are capable of.

Overall: I've found a few amazing product designers for whom I am very grateful.

Pros: The response rate is relatively high, because you know candidates are looking. I was able to hire a really strong Systems Engineer through the platform in our Seattle office. I like that I can add users easily, and tag team members to collaborate in the tool. That's a huge miss for LinkedIn Recruiter, glad that Hired.com has that feature.

Cons: The interview scheduling, and re-scheduling process is a little clunky. It's nice that it works with gmail for business, but integrations with our ATS would be extremely valuable. We currently use GreenHouse, and we have to duplicate steps to record our actions.

I don't mind competition, but it has become a bit of a bidding website. Candidates throwing their profile on, getting as many offers as possible, and going to the highest bidder. Again, that's not a terrible thing, just that is where it has gone. Great for candidates, not so great for employers.

Overall: Hired.com has really good customer service. A+ in that area for sure, and it was very cool for them to send me a gift for my first hire through their platform. It was a Hired.com bluetooth speaker that I use almost daily!

Pros: hired.com has made it very easy for us to find quality software developers and the price is very reasonable compared to other services.

Cons: it would be great to have a filter option for US citizens as well. "authorized to work in the US" covers green card holders and those with work visas but does not filter out potential candidates which could obtain a security clearance with the US government.

Overall: I like hired.com! There is always room for improvement but its a simple, easy to use, straightforward tool for finding quality software developers and it has worked well for us so far.

- Strong pool of candidate available which saves a lot of time for sourcing

- Great customer support

Cons: - not many candidates available for leadership role

- only useful for technical hiring and not for business or sales recruitment

- Quality of candidates can be improved

Overall: Overall I have a positive experience using Hired. It definitely saved a lot of sourcing time and helped me find right candidates. Details like expected compensation is helpful. I would surely recommend Hired.

Pros: The platform is easy to use and allows for more streamlined conversations with talented technical talent. The integration with our ATS system makes things efficient from our perspective.

Cons: While the system is great to use, the feature that requires salary information to be transparent has caused inflation in salaries and a bidding war that is not warranted on actual experience. The platform is too expensive in general for what it is as well.

Pros: This platform provides a great candidate experience. With their ability to put their search criteria up front it also makes it easier for recruiters to know who to reach out to and who to avoid.

Cons: For the comp it would be nice if they would switch to full package expectations vs just salary.

Overall: I have found several great candidates that meet our very high hiring bar. It helps build the active pipeline quickly allowing more time to focus on passive talent through other platforms.

Pros: I love the easy-to-use functionality of the software. The customer success is amazing as well... Our Account Manager and Customer Success reps are always there when we need them.

Cons: I wish we could still find a number of different roles, rather than JUST technical-focused roles. We do a lot of sales hiring, but understand why this is no longer a functionality for the software.

Overall: We are very focused on some key technical roles, so Hired makes it easy to get some free sourcing directly to our inboxes.

Pros: It's very easy to browse through candidates, based on certain parameters. You can quickly determine salary expectations to avoid uncomfortable conversations in the future. Scheduling is simply and integrations with Lever makes it even easier to use.

Cons: Unfortunately, some of the results are incorrect when using filters. It does not allow multiple different hiring managers to review the same candidates. For instance, if I want to 'shortlist' candidates and have a recruiting coordinator schedule phone screens, that is not something that's possible - this is a huge point of frustration for me. I also feel that the applicant quality has been going down over time, particularly for product managers. I've spoken with many candidates that have no experience in the role whatsoever.

Pros: That it has talented individuals to hire. They were generally pretty responsive to the questions asked before an interview request. Those were helpful in determining if a fit was possible.

Cons: The nature of searching feels redundant and dislocated. I also found that the profiles were not in too similar of a form to discern differences among candidates. Some used formatting, some used the form, some were void of helpful information. It was lacking standardization across the profiles.

Overall: I felt like I was constantly being sold or upsold. I didn't feel like the plan was catered to my needs as much as catered to Hired getting paid. I felt like the customer success person was interested initially but not much after and was only high touch for the first interaction. I never really saw or understood the Batch process from the terms of service. That wasn't really clear in the product interaction.

Overall: Strong overall experience. Hired provides great analytics around the platform ROI and strong market insight into what candidates are looking for. The webinar content is good, although there are way too many follow up emails prior to & following up about it. I also like how your team is hands-off unless I reach out.

Pros: I like that I can source candidates who are active in their job search that are similar in industry, and filter my searches. You can also get more insight into the candidate from your account manager which is helpful when competing against others. I also like that it integrates with Greenhouse which makes the export and source tracking easy. The fact that you can add people to your searches is great for collaboration.

Cons: I don't like that some markets aren't supported (for us it's Raleigh, North Carolina) and that some of the filtering seems limited when I am trying to get creative with my search strings. I wish we had more hires from the time spent sourcing.

Overall: Great place to diversify your search for technical talent.

Pros: They have a lot of engaged candidates and most of them respond to you. Regardless of a positive or negative response, it's always nice to have people respond to your inquiries.

If you're looking for a full stack/backend/front end engineer then this place has a ton of them. If it's anything specific then a traditional team search would be more appropriate..

Cons: The quality of people us to be better. For some reason, the folks who I am talking to now feel like they haven't really been vetted by anybody. I've even seen some suspicious resume in the site.

Overall: If you need a pipeline of generic engineers then this is a great place to start. When your company's needs become a bit more specific, Hired's value will start to dwindle.

Pros: Hired is a great tool to use to find qualified engineers who are actively looking for a new position. It is quite an upgrade from cold outreach on platforms like Linkedin.

Cons: What I like least is the fact it doesn't integrate with Jobvite.

Overall: We have had some success with Hired. We were able to hire a technical program manager which has work out extremely well. We have had our challenges (extending 3 offers to candidates from Hired and they declined) because we know the market is very competitive and for every 1 candidate they have 4 offers.

Pros: I like that I can filter through and find candidates that are currently in the job market and fit the skillset we are looking for.

Cons: A lot of hired candidates are interviewing with so many companies that they go dark or communication gets lost between the platform/email. For example, I will send an email to a candidate and they will follow up with me on the hired platform (not having read my email).

Overall: We have found a few good candidates with Hired, but none of them have actually been hired at Mixpanel.

Pros: Hired has good, solid candidates. Good customer success and account management teams as well and an easy to use platform.

Cons: Now Hired's success has almost become it's downfall. Unless you're a top tier company offering the highest levels of comp it's almost impossible to hire a candidate via the platform. Also if your process is not optimally tailored and efficient you'll lose about 90-95% of candidates to other faster companies.

Overall: Initially our first two hires are great and turned out to be fantastic employees but now our experience with Hired is spending a lot of time on candidates who end up taking offers elsewhere. Initially when we enrolled with Hired a typical candidate would have 10-12 other companies expressing interest, now they have between 30-40. Something needs to be done to create less competition. Perhaps stronger vetting and better alignment in what the candidate and companies want.

Pros: Managing candidates and searching is fairly easy. It's nice to be able to @-mention coworkers when you see interesting people.

Cons: It can be frustrating to bucket engineers in Software vs DevOps categories. It means opening up two jobs to find one blended type of engineer. Often notifications don't seem to appear in the most useful way when communicating between coworkers.

Overall: Hired is another good pool of candidates to review, even if they aren't the most senior folks.

Pros: Easy to see line up pf candidates and send them a message, also very easy to schedule interviews. I like that it syncs with my google calendar automatically.

Cons: Very hard to review a comprehensive account of people contacted, rejected, interviewed by myself. The list only goes down as far as last 10-15 people contacted.

Overall: Good candidates on there but there really should be a way to go into a certain account and see all the interactions with that person.

Pros: The ease of use, the refined interface + features (compared to Woo it is a breeze to use), and there are lots of filters that are available when searching. Loads of candidates.

Cons: Room for a few improvements (like being able to "undo" when sending a direct message to a candidate if a mistake was made).

Overall: We hired our UX engineer from Hired, and she's AMAZING! Hired has strong design candidates, but so far, we haven't found that their engineering candidates are as strong for us.

Pros: I'm getting response from highly engaged candidates

Cons: The salary expectations weren't easy for me to work with. For some reason I had trouble sourcing a usable number from my recruiting team, then the fact that we represent it as a range was a challenge because it made it difficult for me to communicate useful expectations to the candidate. If I use the low end I could be scaring off candidates but if I use the high end I remove the ability to negotiate.

I wasted time on one candidate who wasn't authorized to work in the US. I didn't know I should've flagged his account.

The pool of candidates available is low, but I suspect this will improve in time.

Overall: My only comparison is to LinkedIn and it's vastly better than LinkedIn when it comes to actually getting candidates in the pipeline.

Pros: The quality of candidates was the best feature, it was obvious that they had been vetted by hand. Having gone through the process from the job seekers' side as well in the past, and getting called a few hours after signing up to go through my profile was quite a shock - a pleasant one though.

Cons: With the quality of candidates, there aren't many. This comes more into play when you search for combinations of specific skills, and continue to get the same 3 candidates.

Overall: While the number of candidates on hired isn't that high (yet!), their quality ensures that it will continue to be my first stop when hiring.

Pros: I like the transparency of the software - candidates can tell you exactly what they're looking for and pay is transparent up front.

Cons: As with any sourcing tool, some candidates do not understand the need to have more complete profiles. I've encountered a few (although this is not the majority) people who only list their job title and where they worked. Then there's no resume attached to the profile, and the LinkedIn profile they attach is not complete either. It makes it difficult to assess a candidate when there's no information on them.

Overall: I've really enjoyed my experience. Customer service has been great and they truly work with you on hiring candidates. It's great to have people working hard to help you achieve hiring goals.
