Pros: Very well marketed. Easy to log in candidate information and search features are easy to learn. It's a very user-friendly tool in the recruiting process.

Cons: When modifying a interview schedule, I wish the tool would automatically update the schedule when I make a change to one person on The List.

Pros: It's better than using a spreadsheet to manage your applicants.

Cons: The site goes experiences outages roughly once a month (outside of their scheduled maintenance). I have to open tickets with their support staff weekly, due to glitches in the system. Oftentimes, I have to find my own workaround because their response time is poor or my issues get ignored. We chose an off-the-shelf ATS, because we thought we would save time and money. It really is costing me a lot of time with constant support tickets and workarounds. For the amount that we pay, we are better off building one in-house or contracting it out.

Pros: Everything! This tool makes applicant tracking really easy and extremely manageable. Sometimes, we need to hire a few entry level positions and it makes getting quality inbound applications a breeze and really helps us to manage the entire applicant journey.

Cons: Nothing at all...the only thing would be that if LinkedIn decides to really get into the ATS game, this might be a challenge.

Great system however for smaller companies it can be overpriced

Pros: I really like the dashboard and how easy it is to see all the activities you have going on. The set up is very clean, and easy to understand.

Cons: For the basic needs we need (really just organizing our candidates) for us, this was a too expensive route. I feel it would be great for larger organizations.

The implementation process was seamless and we were able to get up and running much more easily than I expected.

Pros: Jobvite has been an awesome tool to manage the hiring process. It provides A to Z of hiring within its cloud based tool. Candidate information is being managed well and offers can be made right out of the application. Provides options to configure the application in our own way.

Cons: The reporting elements can be improved with some visual appearance. The rest of the feature set helps well with hiring process.

Pros: Jobvite helps with the recruiting the right candidates. Its ATS application helps managing the information in a great manner which helps the interviewer to get all necessary data about a candidate.

Comments: This is a great tool, it is a bit costly but you definitely get all of the functions you will use and more. This is a tool that any organization could grow into - if you aren't going to use the tool to its full use - its still worth it just for the easy adaptability

Pros: It Allows to create customized reports in this ATS from candidates in your current pipelines in certain requisitions to offer declines over a past year, this is integrated Google Calendar which makes it easy to schedule interviews in Jobvite itself.The best feature is having social media tools. You can also easily post positions out to your LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter network.This feels like an all in one recruiting tools.Integrations with google and outlook calendar and messaging. Once it's set up, easy to use.The rejecting candidates allows you to send an email to close their candidacy which is not found in any other ATS.

Cons: need a big infrastructure to support this software. Sometimes moving from one page to another page is slow.

Pros: It's very customizable. Also, their customer service team is amazingly awesome. If I could give 6 stars, I would.

Cons: There are trade-offs with the system being job-centric (vs candidate-centric). Since this one is job-centric sometimes it can be tricky to track a candidate who has applied to multiple reqs and to find feedback from previous interviews.

Pros: I find Jobvite relatively easy to use, I have mostly trained myself. It is well-designed with a limited color palette that helps reduce visual noise. Customization options accommodate our specific workflows.

Cons: I am not a daily user (my role is recruiting-adjacent), so my experience may be different if I were a power user. That being said, Jobvite is almost *too* robust. I am sometimes not sure what the difference is between all the options, and find myself potentially self-limiting additional ways the tool could be more useful for me.

Comments: Jobvite is a great product! You definitely need to dedicate your time to build the platform for your company and may be challenging at times trying to get the right thing, but this is worth it. I would recommend having two or three people be a part of the implementation process in case someone leaves/backup. Our career site is looking amazing so far with the Branding part.

Pros: You can create customized reports in this ATS from candidates in your current pipelines in certain requisitions to offer declines over a past year, this is integrated Google Calendar which makes it easy to schedule interviews in Jobvite itself. You can also easily post positions out to your LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter network. This feels like an all in one recruiting tools.

Cons: Their site goes down quite a bit which leaves you stuck not being able to do anything. Customer Support is super hard to get in touch with and they are not very helpful. The reporting leaves a lot to be desired. It does some very basic reporting, but sometimes the numbers are not accurate and trying to get support to help understand why is impossible.

Comments: Spent about 4 years with jobvite and am a big fan. Easy to use and onboard. With a recent change away, they were even great on the backend with the data migration.

Pros: If you're using it every day, it's VERY easy to navigate and access all the information you need. Easy access to a community for asking questions and seeking advice/updates.

Cons: Search wasn't as intuitive as I'd like (for example, I have to get the spelling correct - kelsi, kelcey, kelsey) - doesn't autofill The summary page for requisitions could be more descriptive - it'd be nicer to have a snapshot view of candidates to share with leadership

It has been great. The customer service is impeccable!

Pros: The variety that the software offers. We currently use the Recruiting and Onboarding tools, and the systems integrate well together. The Recruiting platform is more developed than the Onboarding tool.

Cons: I wish the Onboarding tool was a little more developed and customizable. However I have heard some of our requests will be released in their next software updates.

Overall: The recruiting and onboarding software integrates well together which cuts down on time and human error.

Pros: The fact that it is linked to users Outlook account made it possible for our hiring manager to get on top of their tasks.

Cons: Features that would help us to manage candidates that do not have an email address. Single log-in for field employees would be great as most don't have an email address and count for 70 % of our hires.

Would be better if they had good Customer Support and their platform was more stable

Comments: It's not horrible, if you've never used an ATS before, you'll think it's terrific. If you've used some of the others like Level or Greenhouse, you'll think it's fair but not great.

Pros: I like the ease of use, it's somewhat intuitive and has a lot of good features. They have a lot of good training tutorials online so it's pretty easy to get hiring managers to use it. For the money, it's not a bad ATS, I'd give it a B- if I were grading it.

Cons: Their site goes down quite a bit which leaves you stuck not being able to do anything. Customer Support is super hard to get in touch with, you'll stay on the phone waiting for someone to answer for hours, if they ever do they are not very helpful. The reporting leaves a lot to be desired. It does some very basic reporting, but sometimes the numbers are not accurate and trying to get support to help understand why is impossible.

The system is easy to use and fast but like all systems, not perfect.

Pros: What I like most about the software is the ability to save workflow processes. That way depending on the type of position I'm recruiting on or where that positions is based, the appropriate workflow process will automatically be put in place and therefore the appropriate managers and other key employees in the recruitment process will be notified.
Jobvites ability to track candidates applying to more than one position in our organization also helps keep us organized and gives us a birds eye view of what a candidates interests are and what communications we may have had with them in the past when they've applied with us.

Cons: What I like least about the software is we cannot easily add hyper links to emails. Since hyper links cannot be part of your templates you have to manually add them to emails. This is tedious.

Pros: It helps keep tracks of candidates and keeps me organized. You can send messages through it (although I have experienced over a day delay in the messages getting sent once).

Cons: The platform can be very slow at times. Also the reporting functionality is not very user friendly. You should be able to customize the reports more so I don't have to make pivot tables once the reports run.

It would also be beneficial to filter candidates in a req based on application questions.

Pros: We piloted Jobvite for about 6 months when looking for a new tracking software, and overall we were pretty pleased. You get a lot of functionality with your membership, and the user experience is definitely worth the money. Everything is customizable, organized, and easy to use. We will definitely be looking into it for a longer contract!

Cons: The demo was a little lengthy, and the customer service isn't always the most immediate. When they do help, they are very efficient!

Pros: - ease of use for candidate application - ability to edit jobs easily - their product roadmap is constantly evolving

Cons: - When you hire a candidate and disposition them to hired the candidates other applications are not updated to "hired", can be confusing with multiple recruiters and multiple locations. You also cannot view a candidates notes for all of their applications in one place. You have to look though all the applications that a candidate applied to. - the customer support is a joke and slow. Jobvite offshores their support -Their reporting functionality is tedious and hard to use

Cons: Its more of a manual process, changing templates is a task, setting up interviews for different locations I want to be able to have a button to click for time zones, so I don't have to change it manually in the email to candidates.

Pros: Ease of use. The learning curve is fairly small as compared to some of the robust ATS' on the market. Calendar scheduling is also very simple.

Cons: Advanced automation and analytics. Sometimes it seems that simple change can't be completed. As an example, there's a super minor customization I've requested that for the life of me can't understand why it can't be done. It would save me hours of time but that's for another day.

Overall: Saves times

Pros: Being able to quickly and easily schedule reports with other employees has been a great time saver. Not having to manually run the report each week is very helpful.

Cons: Trying to create a report can be tedious as the amount of customization can be limited. There is no way to start a report from scratch, Jobvite does not do a good job of saying which dataset the data is being pulled from. Limited custom formulas once the report is created. The 'Notes' field cannot be pulled into any reports.

Overall: Ease of sharing the reports within the organization.

Cons: Customer support can take awhile to connect and we aren't given a dedicated account point of contact. The software can be clunky with many bugs still to be worked out in the system.

Comments: The ATS is ok. It'll do what is needed and for what it is, the pricing is ok.

Pros: Compared to other ATS that I've user, Jobvite has the most advanced features. If I wanted to make many customizations, there's normally a way to do it.

Cons: Reporting is terrible. The labeling system is too complex and hard to figure out where to do what. UI is very old and dated. Customer Support is slow and incompetent.

Comments: it's great as corporate ATS and agency access is very limited - all what your can do is just to upload a resume.

Pros: I like the transparency and ease of use. I liked that it keeps all recruiter-candidate and recruiter-hiring team communication. no need to send resumes via email. it's easy to track the activity and status.

Cons: when req is closed/filled/canceled - candidate's status are not changed. hard to manage candidate communication when he/she is considered for a few roles.

Pros: Easy use from screening resumes on their mobile app, to deep diving into an interview evaluation. The tool was was cross functional and there was little ramp up time which is always easily adaptable when learning a new tool.

Cons: The reporting function was a little weaker than what I would have thought, only because every other function performed at such a high level

Pros: The Social Media platform integration is still best in class. It works well and allows easy visibility for your company's jobs across all social media platforms.

Cons: There are several things, but the actual ATS part of the system seems to have been designed as an afterthought. The workflow is not intuitive and there are too many features that just are not there for a modern search firm, and I imagine it would be very frustrating for an internal corporate recruiter as well. The worst feature though is their enforced branding through email. If you use Jobvite, every time you send an email through their platform it will go out with a jobvite.com email address. This means that many of your candidates will just not see the emails you send because their junk mail filters are picking up the jobvite.com email address as spam because they have a very high junk mail score and also because the word job is in the email address. When I used Jobvite as a corporate recruiter, I was constantly having to call candidates to see if they had received my emails and when I found out they had not I was resending messages from outside of Jobvite. When I called Jobvite, they said this was not a feature that could be easily turned off, and that the only way to do this was for our sys admins to make changes to the company domain settings and if your admins are like mine, they are not going near that with a 10 foot pole. This an idiotic feature and a deal killer for anyone in the recruiting industry.

Pros: I love how easy JobVite is to learn and how the team is super responsive to any issues that occur. The best part is how you can truly customize the program to our needs to make our TA processes quick and efficient. The webinars are extremely helpful and interactive, and the way you can customize the Engage Us App and landing pages is awesome!

Cons: the resume database has been down for several months. In January, I submitted an engineering ticket because it was telling me that my CareerBuilder login and password were incorrect, and the communication was great initially, but the issue was never resolved and now it seems like that whole piece of the software has been down (it is July now). another con: often when candidates are added through Indeed, duplicate files are created. the software needs to get better at weeding out double and triple files of the same candidate.

Pros: What I like most about this product it the minimal amount of data that is required by a staffing vendor when entering a candidate for consideration. We are all under a time crunch with recruiting and this helps tremendously.

Cons: The only con I have contradicts my pro, which is minimal information is required by the staffing vendor when entering info, so I would think data analytics isn't as robust as it could be.

Pros: Jobvite is one of the more competitively priced recruiting systems out there. There are premium products out there that I loved, however they would have cost almost twice as much as Jobvite, which I couldn't justify for probably 10% better functionality. It's super easy to use from both a recruiter standpoint as well as an admin standpoint. The key feature of sending Jobvites makes it super easy for employees to send out (and for us to track) referrals. As an admin, I LOVE the ability to chat with a tech support person from the tool vs. calling and being on hold for hours, only to be read to from a script vs. speaking with someone who can problem solve.

Cons: Jobvite emails come from the Jobvite email address and do not allow you to embed a signature. Because of this, we do not use Jobvite for candidate communications (other than the standard "thanks for applying" email that all applicants receive. There's also no way to BCC Jobvite to track these external emails in the system. We are a smaller company (350) and our recruiters are more senior, however this could be a deal breaker for a company that uses coordinators that require more oversight. While you can customize most of the templates, there are some that are embedded in the system that you can't change that contain awkward and stilted wording. One of them contained a grammatical error and felt it reflected on us so poorly (we're a content marketing agency) we had to disable the feature entirely. There's also a limit to the number of the columns that can appear in the search field, so we aren't able to view all of our custom fields verifying an applicant's suitability up front, which makes the process more time consuming for recruiters as they have to view more applications one at a time. Also, they occasionally have updates which take the product backward instead of forward, such as removing the job alerts email feature. I know it sounds like there are more cons than pros, but the ease of use and customer support is 100% more important than all of the cons.

Shifting from tab to tab often takes a long time to populate. Also, the taskbar should allow us to make additional notes to it- for example, the person to whom the task is assigned should be able to leave a small note stating " waiting for availability" or " waiting on interviewers approval" or whatever else they may need to note.

Comments: Jobvite was a step up for my company. We out grew our former ATS about 2 years ago. With that said I do not feel that Jobvite it the right fit for our organization. Once our 2 year contact is up I don't foresee us renewing. My company needs to be able to field hundreds of applicant's through our ATS daily. It became very clear shortly after using Jobvite that this software is not meant for a company like mine. It lacks small features that I need as a Staffing Manager, in order for my tasks to be efficient. We initially offered to pay more money if they needed to customize any software but they do not do that. You have to post your change to a forum where people can vote on it. The ones with the most votes gets applied in the release. This is fine in theory but if no other companies are endorsing the idea you post to the forum it leads me to believe that Jobvite can not handle the type of recruiting we do and does not have many companies like ours. Which should have made clear to us in the initial stages of negotiation.

Pros: 1. Great Level 1 Customer Service representatives, all you do is call in and someone can help you with a simple question or problem almost immediately. I use this feature often. 2. The site is user friendly, it was easy to teach members of my team how to use it. 3. Publisher tool is awesome! Very easy to post jobs to all social media outlets.

Cons: 1. Sub par Level 2 Customer Service Reps, when a level 1 person can not answer your question they pass it off to a level 2 Rep. These level 2 Reps that are assigned to your case are hard to get a hold of. They are reluctant to get on the phone with you. I have had 2 separate instances where I had been passed to a level 2 Reps, I was not impressed with their customer service skills. 2. When we went through the integration process we had many meetings with the integration Rep assigned to use but towards the he fizzled out. We were not fully integrated and he passed us off to the customer service line for further questions.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would not recommend Jobvite to a company like the one I work for as I do not feel the software is fully equipt for our needs. I would recommend Jobvite to a small to mid size company that did not intend to use the software to screen, email, and connect with hundreds of candidates in a day.

Comments: Last year we signed up for a one year contract with Jobvite to give the site a chance. The service was fine. I was able to submit job openings and receive applications. The real problem came when an error in the accounting department shut off our service. Instead of helping me get to the bottom of the issue they forced us to sign another contract. At the time I was not told that it was a contract just that in order to have the service turned back on, I had to sign in order to post, it was April and I was at a critical juncture so I signed. By the next day their mistake was discovered and I thought everything was cleared up. Until we started receiving a new invoice for $5k! We had already paid up until June of 2016 but now they were insisting that we pay an additional $5k and extend the service until April of 2017. After months of being passed from one person to the next, with me explaining to each person why it was wrong and that we did not want to continue service they sent us to collections! No one returned my calls while I tried to get this cleared up with Jobvite and even now they still do not have the information correct. I would not let my worst enemy chose this company!

Pros: absolutely nothing

Cons: complete lack of customer service and inability to follow up on an issue. Not to mention not taking responsibility for their own mistake!

Recommendations to other buyers: Run, don't walk, away from this company.

Pros: Ease of use; compatibility with social media sites

Cons: Customer Service; lack of individualization; release process

Overall: We analyzed multiple ATS' and decided on Jobvite. At this point, if I could select any other ATS outside of Jobvite I would be happy. Once you transition into a contract the customer service is terrible. You do not have a dedicated agent working with you, you have to contact the main customer service line and they do not prioritize any issues. They take holidays completely off. We had an issue with our site beginning the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving and reached out in the morning. The entire day went by with no contact or resolution to our issue and we went into the Thanksgiving holiday with no contact. Jobvite customer support did not resolve our issue until Tuesday after Thanksgiving after we reached out multiple times. Our issue was significant in that none of our new candidates were coming into our account so we lost 6.5 days of new candidates all because no one takes responsibility/ownership of an account. This is completely different than the customer service during the exploratory phase. It is terrible. This is just one of the many issues we have had.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a small to mid size company that doesn┬┐t have much analytics, this would be a good platform.

Comments: Have been using Jobvite for about a year and it was easy to learn and customize. Easy to develop templates for prescreen questions for review purposes not "knock out" . Customer service can be questionable at times and may get different answers to solutions depending on who you ask. Little clunky to review candidates and bulk disposition them.

Pros: Nice dashboard that tells you your requisition activity. Easy to use and learn. Very customizable but be careful and work with a JV rep to ensure if you customize your workflow that you can report on the different steps. Easy for candidates to apply and review status of application.

Cons: Reporting function is not easy to customize reports. Have to download in Excel to manipulate data. Can't report on reasons you rejected someone or why someone turn down offer. If looking for comprehensive reports may not be the right tool. Customer service responsiveness can be delayed if issue is more challenging and may get different answers on solutions depending on who you ask. Have had issues posting to LinkedIn and has been a couple weeks since the issue arose and still not fixed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure if you do customize in regards to the workflow that is won't interfere with there standard practices from a reporting standpoint as your reporting may not be accurate as a result.

Comments: Overall, Jobvite is easy to navigate and has great customer support, but if you are looking for a site that is customizable with advanced search functions, this may not be for you.

Pros: It is easy to navigate through the Jobvite system and the customer service response time is very quick!

Cons: The system is not as customizable as we needed it to be and the reports feature is not user friendly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Decide what features you are looking for in your ideal ATS. If you are focused on reporting and analytics, this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for something easy to navigate with already established templates, Jobvite might work for you.

Comments: I find Jobvite very easy to implement and use however there are some UI flaws. I don't like that when you need to reschedule an interview it doesn't keep historical thread or template which requires to enter all the information all over again. Customization of interviewing scheduling templates and evaluation can be better. There is room for improvement but it's the best ATS I have worked with and hiring managers find it easy to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are concerned about integration capability - ask about plugins for systems like ADP which it does integrate with.

Comments: The customer service here is impeccable. I actually enjoy talking with their reps. My only problem with Jobvite is that it is not mobile friendly and their mobile app has basically zero functionality. Also their search function within the system is flawed- meaning if you search for "Joe Jackson" and the person is in the system as "Joseph Jackson"- your search with come up with no results. The reporting function was also down for a solid 2 months recently which was annoying.

Comments: I have been using Jobvite for 3 years now. As all recruiters can agree, no ATS is perfect. What I appreciate about Jobvite is that you can customize it to your company's recruiting processes. Our company has grown quite a bit and we have changed our workflow and best practices on an iterative basis. I feel that Jobvite has scaled with us along the way.

Pros: You can find work-arounds in the system, adaptable to recruiting processes as they change, fairly easy to navigate, simple process for applicant, forms feature for online applications is good

Cons: reporting functionality very difficult to use, search capability in database is poor

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a small to mid size company Jobvite is a great platform. It might get more difficult as you get to a stage where you need to drive heavy analytics and leverage it as a search database

Comments: I am an HR Recruiter for a multi-channel marketing and product development company specializing in labor law, HR and tax solutions that create a bridge between what the law requires and what makes sense for businesses. We have large volumes of applications through Jobvite's system and have found it to be an extremely simple way to organize our candidates applications. What a great system to use starting from the application process to the interviewing process to hiring and filling the position and even once the employee is employed. Their customer service and online help tools are great. We have weekly webinars with an account manager who talks us through any updates or problems we're experiencing and allows us to ask questions along the way. I would recommend Jobvite to all Recruiters and HR Professionals looking for a great simple to use ATS.

Pros: That, if used to its full extent, it can be a one stop shop for all recruiting needs.

Cons: I sometimes have issues searching for a candidate's name if they are assigned to multiple requisitions, and will have to do a search within requisitions to find the role i know they applied for.

Recommendations to other buyers: Really spend the time getting to know the software and how it will work best for you, coupled with existing HR software. We don't use Jobvite to its full extent, but are still pleased with the functions it does provide.

Pros: ease of use- quick glance dashboard-integrate well with 0365.

Cons: Lots of slowness, sometimes outages and error messages. Also, the reporting is not very versed- meaning that many fields in JV are not reportable, so it is cumbersome at times to do reports because you have to do a lot of scrubbing of data and combining reports. - Wish it had better reporting capabilities.

Overall: Been using Jobvite for the past year. Initially never worked with it before and it was easy to learn an pick up.

Recommendations to other buyers: When there is a enhancement, we often experience outages or issues with the application, which is very frustrating and gives the customer/user the impression that development or your IT team is not testing the updates before release.
