Pros: I like the concept of gathering all the aspects of a hire in a single system. This one, however, feels extremely disjointed and unorganized.

Cons: The User Interface and User Experience are terrible in this product. There are too many places to go and not enough clarity or organization to make this product extremely useful. There are about 10 different ways to do the same thing, and there isn't clear tracking on what's been done or if there is something to still be completed.

Overall: An all-in-one system to gather applicants and track the hiring process.

Comments: They recently changed their user interface and had a really annoying feature where all filters ¿collapsed¿ every time you made a selection. We sent a few change requests to their customer service team, and they actually listened! It took about 3.5 months to implement the change, but it¿s fixed now and all is right with the world again. It¿s nice to see they take change requests seriously and want to improve their product to meet user needs!

Pros: We've been using ApplicantStack for over a year, and it's still a great product! They just did a major update that changed the user interface a bit, and for the most part it was an improvement. Still absolutely amazing for the price - it's based on recruiter/HR/admin users, as opposed to employees or # of applicants like with Taleo or iCims.

Hi Melissa! We are very pleased that you are still very happy with ApplicantStack. We want to continue to do everything to make our customers happy. We are glad that you like the new user interface and its many enhancements. I am not sure exactly when you wrote this review but as of yesterday, Nov 14 we pushed a feature to production that allows the filters to stay expanded. As you mentioned, we listen and take feedback very seriously however some items take more time than others. Keep sending us feedback! Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Jennifer

Comments: Customer Service is phenomenal. You ask they deliver! Cannot say enough about them. Pricing is reasonable.

Pros: Applicantstack can be adjusted to your needs. It is very customizable. This helps when it comes to creating systems that help guide applicants through the selection process quickly.

Cons: Sometimes the backend is a little clunky. but if you can overcome that, you will be happy with their system.

Positive, flexible, very supportive team behind this product.

Pros: The product is really easy to use and is the best ATS I have ever worked with. It's not overly complicated, but there is an amazing team at ApplicantStack that is very willing to work with us on any product enhancements that we'd like to see, or assist with minor projects as needed as well. They know what they are doing and are quick to help. With the ever-changing world of recruitment, I find that the flexibility is key because you never know what may be needed next! They are also always improving items I hadn't even thought of, which is wonderful!

Cons: There is really nothing that I do not like about this software. If I had to pick something I suppose their onboarding piece is not yet very robust so we aren't using it yet, but from our experience with the recruitment piece of it, we know the onboard side of the platform will continue to grow and we will move to it soon.

Pros: We didn't want to force an applicant to have to spend time keying in information in order to submit their resume. ApplicantStack allowed us to set up so that they give us 8 candidate field data points and then can upload a resume and they have applied. Three minutes or less and they are in our queue. We love it. Applicants love it.

Cons: Reporting is hard to master in terms of building and designing a report. Are you filtering or grouping etc? Luckily, I find AppStack's technical team was great about looking at what I built and then correcting me where I was wrong.

Overall: Speed. From start to finish we were configured and up and running in 1 week.

Pros: Setting aside the ability to manage candidates in an efficient manner, I would say I like the support provided by ApplicantStack. I am very particular about ensuring I meet the needs of our team. Customer representative and her team have provided nothing less than excellent support in problem resolution, consideration of new features and overall functionality.

Cons: I would have to say the reporting functionality could be significantly improved. The ability to generate reports that meet the needs of our company is not as intuitive as it could be.

For the price...AMAZING!

Comments: I have used other ATS systems with other companies and found this system to be very simple but with all the right capabilities. I would like to see different seminars such as recruiting laws and how to get better use out of the system based on recruiting requirements.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to train other to use, and very adaptable. Great for companies of any size! I have had no issues using the system or changing it to our specific needs.

Cons: I would like to be able to send an email to my managers with feedback forms so they can fill it out and it will show up in the candidates profile (Much like how I can send an email to the candidate with a questionnaire and it automatically uploads into their candidate profile). Now they have to log in and go to the profile to complete this action.

Great ATS!

Comments: Before we looked into getting a different applicant tracking system I found applicant stack to be intuitive and easy to use. Once we started looking into other systems I found applicant stack to be a little behind in terms of capability and functionality. There is similar software that has more capability for a fraction of the cost of applicant stack.

Pros: Great system very easy to use

Cons: Cost in comparison to some of the newer software providers

Comments: I had no experience with ApplicantStack until my current job in which that was the ATS system used. It was relatively easy to understand and use, however extremely complex to pull data from. There was the normal mass of canned reports and fields for customization, but many times you had to pull separate reports to get the needed information and then manually merge them. They have ways to go to catch up to the competition.

Pros: Easy to use on daily basis Customer support was relatively responsive.

Cons: Data export/customized reports difficult and cumbersome Minimal technology advancements.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are on a strict budget it's definitely a workable no frills option.

Comments: You can't beat the price for ApplicantStack! They are just as powerful as the other applicant tracking systems, but without the high price tag. Despite the cons I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Pros: They really get to know you, and your business and the needs associated with you and your business. Prompt with email help, they replied within about two hours.

Cons: Not integrated yet with Shibboleth yet, and when you call for phone support you never get anyone, you only get voicemails which is kinda frustrating sometimes.

Recommendations to other buyers: They are great for small to large businesses with their powerful tools.

Comments: We reviewed Applicant Stack and considered taking advantage if the free trial but decided its simplicity of features, functionality and process was too simple for our needs. If you simply need a database and have time to personally configure/customize the process or willing to pay a $300 service fee for set-up support. It appears the software is due for an upgrade, appearing clunky and a generic, dull, unvarnished candidate appearance (jobs listing and career page).

Pros: It is very easy to use.

Cons: I do not have the ability to search for a job like I do a candidate. For our system, we have hundreds of jobs and I just have to go page by page since it is limited to view only 100 per page until I find the right one.

Overall: The system configuration really needs to be done by someone with experience. For people with experience in HRIS, the system is extremely easy to use. For customer service, I typically have to email or leave a message. I don't typically get a live agent. However, they respond within 24 hours. The system does not have the latest greatest when it comes to technology- IE no system integration with HRIS, no mapping of candidates, no integration with google suite (calendar), no map abilities. They are starting to incorporate onboarding abilities (new hire paperwork, forms, etc) into their product which I have not yet explored. The number of users (hiring managers) is limited by how much you pay so as your company grows you will need to pay more and more per month to allow more hiring managers in the system.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is really easy to use and makes it easy to launch a job. We get a lot of candidate responses and the set up is very easy once you have it going.

Hi Alison! Thank you for taking the time to review ApplicantStack. Your feedback is very important to us. We do offer support through our support portal and have our help center available 24x7. We do offer an API for integration with any system that would accept it. Please send us a support ticket so we can provide you with more information. However we are currently working on more integrations. You do have the ability to search for jobs similar to how you search for candidates. You can search on Job Title, Job ID, or any other job field. you can also sort on columns if that would make it even easier to find your jobs. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Comments: I work with clients to help them with recruiting and other HR needs, and have worked within ApplicantStack through one of my clients. ApplicantStack is a good, simple solution for small businesses.

Pros: I like the ability to create custom work flows as well as candidate scoring and Boolean search options. This system is very efficient for the cost in comparison to other ATS's I've interacted with. I also like that it is easy to show history and communicate through this system.

Cons: As far as I can tell, complete OFCCP compliance either isn't available or is only available with a larger plan. With the smaller plan you only get 1 admin and up to 5 hiring managers, but many small companies can make due with that since you can switch the users as needed.

Recommendations to other buyers: When considering ATS's in general, I would always make sure the system has the reporting you may need for compliance. Also, being able to communicate with hiring managers and candidates through the system is very helpful because it keeps all of the documentation in one easy-to-access place.

Pros: ApplicantStack's customer service is fast and friendly. We've contacted them numerous times about questions and job portal formatting changes, and they've helped us every step of the way.

Cons: The interface of ApplicantStack has a learning curve and is somewhat tricky. However, after the initial setup growing pains, the system offers a lot of options and control.

Recommendations to other buyers: I highly recommend trying demos for as many Applicant Tracking Systems as possible. That's how we decided to use ApplicantStack. The different software products handle slightly differently, and so what is best for one company/HR department may not be the best for others.

Pros: We evaluated several ATSs and ApplicantStack was the only ATS we found that was budget-friendly yet offered all of the functionality that we required (which was a lot). You get way more than what you pay for, and our experience with the vendor in terms of tech support and sales has been nothing short of stellar. We utilized ApplicantStack's integration services and customization options which were both very cost-effective for what we wanted and the amount of work that we requested. Everyone was amazing to work with!

Cons: The user interface isn't as "sexy" or sleek as some other budget ATSs out there, but for us function far outweighed form so we selected ApplicantStack as our ATS. It doesn't incorporate some of the newer functionality that other ATSs offer such as tagging candidates (e.g., "#salescandidate"), but we have found other work-arounds for being able to effectively manage a "future candidate" pool. Lastly, it does take a while to get up and running but this period of time may not be significant if your company is very small and you don't need a lot of frills with your candidate communications documents, job application, or pre-screening questionnaires. We thought long and hard about our entire recruitment process as we are building up our recruitment processes, so it took longer as ApplicantStack doesn't offer consultants to walk you through every phase of the process like you may have with a larger ATS roll-out. This is to be expected, however, with an ATS of this quality and low cost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not discount ApplicantStack just because they don't have a big name like Taleo. They offer an amazing product for the budget-conscious company, and I hate to even associate the word "budget" with this tool as it is so functionally comprehensive that the term "budget" seems to downplay its utility. Perhaps a better word is value. Definitely recommend for consideration.

Pros: We liked the lower cost of the product and the responsiveness of the sales team. The product/service has 90% of what we needed to replace our current manual process.

Cons: The only aspect we did not like was the lack of job requisition process other systems has incorporated into their system.

Recommendations to other buyers: Very customizable and great price for the flexibility.

Pros: The interface for ApplicantStack is organized really well. Infact the concept of tabbing in the designs, divide the functionality in its own section and it helps users a lot. The system is mainly develop to manage employees and candidate information and is very helpful for HR. It can be configured to customize a bit on the interface level and user roles can be setup too.

Cons: I would like some third party integrations if possible. There could be google apps and drive, calendar integration to manage the employee and candidate data.

Recommendations to other buyers: Good for managing employee information and candidate resumes. Other HR activities can be performed as well within it's great user friendly interface.

Pros: I love how customizable everything is. You are really able to make it your own and add, delete or rename work flows and action items to tailor to your departments specific needs.

Cons: Reporting is a concern as it is not really made for tracking multiple users. Also there seems to be a lot of time out connection issues as well, however their customer support portal is always on top of getting back to you immediately if there is an issue.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask all the questions possible during your set up and take advantage of their custom templates!

Pros: ApplicantStack is very user friendly. Even when I first learned how to use the system, I was able to pick it up very quickly.

Cons: What I didn't like about applicantStack is that I could not go through an interview or phone screen through the system. I could only upload answers later. I would like to have a system that had our interview questions integrated in the system so when I move them to phone screen I can ask them questions then type out their answers within applicant stack.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a very easy software to use. I would recommend it for any business with smaller operations.

Comments: ApplicantStack is one of the best ways to manage the flow of applicants for multiple different jobs for our office. It allows me to do multiple things from one place and makes it easy to communicate with potential new hires.

Pros: The ability to post new job listings to job boards makes this product so useful. I do not have to go out to each board individually and post them. Being able to receive an email when a new application is filled out is a nice feature too.

Cons: Some of the items I look for from time to time are hard to find within the different menus. When I do "deactivate" an applicant for whatever reason I wish there was a way to edit the letter to tailor it specifically to each applicant if need be.

Pros: This product is easy to use and easy to train best practices. Working with the reps at ApplicantStack has been nothing but a great experience. They are very responsive, fair, eager to help and always solution oriented. The system has done so much for making our hiring process and reporting data more efficient and valuable across our network.

Cons: I honestly cannot say that there is anything that I don't like about this product or working with this company. They are very proactive and solution oriented. If something doesn't work, they provide excellent service in a timely manner to fix or resolve the issue or explain it in further detail. If we want something done differently, they really do try to find a solution that will work for what we want to accomplish.

Recommendations to other buyers: The power of simplicity cannot be underestimated. ApplicantStack is robust and offers so many options, but can be easy to use and kept quite simple for the user who does not want all kinds of customization. It's easy to use and learn and most of how things are done follow basic, common sense instructions. But, for the user who wants more, the system allows the flexibility and customization to provide great detail and so much more if that is what you want.

Great job.

Comments: Applicant Stack is an excellent tool for the full service talent development cycle. The software tracks all applicants, sends notification letters to applicants, and allows for edits to job postings. The software also posts the positions with the various job search engines.

Pros: The system is very easy to use. It allows you to customize the applicant process to fit your needs. It maintains applicants electronically and alerts you when an applicant has applied before and for which position. It is an extremely affordable software.

Cons: I have not found any cons with the system to this point.

Pros: Since I am new to this program. I find that it is user friendly and easy to use. One of the things I like the best is being able to add a potential applicant in who has provided me with there email and I can send them an email with the link that takes them directly to the our application to fill out online.

Cons: So far I haven't had any issues with this product. I am a new user and right now I can not say one way or the other if there is anything I like least. I have only seen one webinar for training and would like to see more so I could better utilize this program.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the webinar Applicant Stack located out in the Hub. This was very informative and insightful for me. I have asked all of my employees to take the webinar and it has help with applicants calling requesting information

Comments: I haven't had any issues with ApplicantStack other than the fact that our version is a little outdated. It is a very easy system to use, but we don't have mobile capabilities in which we feel would be more beneficial to us.

Pros: It's very well priced! Also very easy to use and maneuver through, you can have the hiring managers look through candidates vs. printing off hard copies, and it's easy to find candidate's resumes.

Cons: We don't have a mobile version of ApplicantStack (which we feel is turning applicants away), it's a little outdated in terms of being able to link with Outlook and other systems, and it could be easier to interact with the hiring managers...in order for us to communicate with the hiring managers, we have to set the stage of the candidates and then email them separately to start a communication chain. If this was able to be done in one place, it would be much easier to communicate!

Vendor Response

by ApplicantStack on August 08, 2017

Daniele! Good news! We updated our user interface! We are currently looking at mobile app options as well as Outlook interface. Please contact us directly so we can assist you with how to communicate with hiring mangers within ApplicantStack. There are multiple methods.

Pros: This product is simple to use and makes going through applications really simple. I like being able to search and find any application I need to. It is also helpful to be able to track the entire life of the application. I am fairly new to this position and it is nice to still have notes and status changes on applications from before I came into this position. When an applicant calls to check on the status of their application it is nice to have that history there to look, especially when they applied before I started.

Cons: At times I think it would be easier if I could make my own deactivation reasons for times when none of the reasons fit why I am deactivating the applicant.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great product, it seems very versatile and it is very easy to learn and use.

Example if you do not move an a candidate to hire the day they are hired - maybe I am on vacation or out of the office - you cannot manipulate the date to reflect the true event date. There's no charts or graphs to provide a visual reference - Be great to have a dashboard.

Pros: Have been extremely easy to work with. For the most part, the tool is self explanatory but their team has been quick to offer help when we are stuck on something.

Cons: Only thing I can think of that would be great is to have a button we could push new hires into our operating software rather than re-entering everything. I know this requires participation with the other vendor and I'm confident that is likely reason why it's not possible for us....

Recommendations to other buyers: This group didn't try to be everything to everybody. They focused on the applicant tracking for us and allowed others to do the rest. That was important to us.

Pros: The software is user friendly and gives you a good overview of all the applicants that come in. There are several reports that you can run to get any data that might be needed for reporting.

Cons: I wish that the candidates that are placed in candidate pool would have their own tab so that I do not see that in all the active applications tab.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are ways that your postings can be reposted so that they show at the top of any job boards. We have found this helpful to boost the number of applicants you get. If you have any questions the staff is very helpful and can walk you through any questions you have.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend that in trying out the product, that they fill out an application or go to one of their job boards and try out several different application scenarios. It's better when you see how the product processes different situations.

Pros: Well organized, intuitive, easy to use. We enjoy being able to sort applicants by status. We like the easy search field to quickly find an applicant rather it be past (deactivated) or present.

Cons: We do not have a lot but if you are listening: We would like to see the ability to run reports with more detail options. For instance, a report by deactivation reason with a list of the applicants under that reason, by a specific date range. When we have a support question, it can be tricky maneuvering your way to where we send an email requesting help. The system strongly promotes going through the various Q&A¿s / blogs to find an answer.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure the product is intuitive and easy to use. Make sure the product has adequate reporting ability. Make sure the product is easy for applicants to maneuver. Applicant stack has great functionality in these areas!!

Pros: East to use, easy to communicate with candidates. That's all I can say.

Cons: The reports! Our numbers are often inconsistent. We ask questions of what we can do better, to achieve more accurate results, but haven't found success. I understand how applications completed can vary, but interviews shouldn't. They rarely match what we manually hand count.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have a manual back up process if you want accurate numbers OR don't weigh your objectives so heavily (if you plan to only use reports). If I was able to make the decision on software, I would be shopping around right now. The added time I have in my workload, just to manually count / keep track of applicants, is unacceptable.

Pros: I love how Applicant Stack helps me keep organized. When you talk to and meet as many people as I do in Recruitment, it's helpful to be able to track the stages and make notes about applicants. It's one stop for posting ads and getting them out to the job boards. We attract more quality applicants now and spend less time weeding through applicants that don't meet our needs. Applicant Stack is very user friendly and has freed up more time for me that I can spend connecting with people face to face. Very satisfied!

Cons: The only thing that I don't like is that once I move an application into the Candidate Pool to keep on file for future, the applicant stays in the "Active Candidate" list. The only choices are "Active Candidate" and "Inactive Candidate". There should be a 3rd choice for "Candidate Pool" so I don't have to see those names in the Active Candidate list.

Recommendations to other buyers: When choosing software, make sure you have an assessment attached to your application. Very helpful. Also, make sure you have the options to email candidates through the site and an option to make notes about applicants. Stages are also very helpful in keeping the hiring process organized.

Pros: Applicant Stack is overall a fantastic piece of software. It's very clean cut and definitely one that helps influence my abilities and hiring process within the office.

Cons: The only negative facet I see is that sometimes it is very hard to manage due to the overwhelming response we receive. With that I would really enjoy seeing a feature within Applicant Stack that allows for a cleaner system, without having 'Do Not Pursue' applicants all in between.

Recommendations to other buyers: Applicant Stack is one of the best pieces of software there is for the type of work we're doing. Meaning as an employer you have the opportunity to see varying facets of each individual applicant.

Pros: It's awesome that Applicantstack posts our job ads on different sites which saves a lot of time and money and brings more applicants. I like how all of the sections are organized. I can easily find applicants in whatever stage of the application process they are in and view under their history section every communication or process they have completed with our company. The automatic follow-up after people inquire, begin, or complete an application is very helpful in keeping applicants informed and engaged. Once reports are setup its helpful to be able to track our progress.

Cons: I needed help setting up some of the reports so it would be more helpful if the reporting section was more user friendly. Also I would like to be able to customize the application templates on my own.

Recommendations to other buyers: Become comfortable with working with customer support especially in the beginning to help you customize things to meet your needs.

It has been great. The customer service is second to none.

Pros: Individual service. We have needed the application tweaked and changed based on our franchise needs in comparison with other areas, and our individual help (Crouse) has been nothing but professional and useful. The individual service requests are taken care of within hours, not days.

Cons: This is a great product. I have no complaints. Very easy to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask how they are going to help you with your immediate needs. If they don't answer, they are not the right product. ApplicantStack is far superior when it comes to this need.

Pros: We have been using applicant stack for years. This has been a helpful tool in my hiring. We have on average 20 new applications a week and by using applicant stack I am able to at a quick glance see where each applicant is in our hiring process. This has saved me time and embarrassment

Cons: I like how the software keeps a running long of things I have entered with each candidate but I wish that the look of the history was different.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think it would be challenging to find another company that offers your organization everything that Applicant Stack does.

Pros: I like the ability to organize and keep an active pipeline of applicants. I also like the ability to easily pull reports for labor law issues.

Cons: I would like to easily create and customize my own buckets of applicants. The only way I can do that now is to contact the company and they can create more/less for me. Sometimes I have groups of applicants going through the hiring process at different times and would like to easily organize them.

Recommendations to other buyers: The customer support has been wonderful. They have always been only a phone call away which helps to utilize this software to its fullest potential.

Pros: Easy to manage Applications. Making notes right on the site is wonderful. Emails are synced up so easy to keep up with them. Great support when having a question. Having the ability to track is amazing.

Cons: A couple of things would be to make it easier to forward the assessment to an applicant who has brought in their application and the applicant is not able to use their phones to fill the assessment out.

Recommendations to other buyers: This product is great, easy to use, keeping up with the application and the stages is wonderful. You can build what is unique to your hiring process.

I like that we can complete the entire hiring process and reflect what stage we are at. It is an added bonus to be able to click and send out for references and/or send emails out directly through this system.

Cons: I wish this program would be able to transfer information about applicants to our company system (clear care)

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure to read the helpful information provided as it has very helpful tips.

Pros: ApplicantStack has been a great value to our office. I was a little apprehensive at first, thinking my literal stacks of applications on my desk in each stage were sufficient. I didn't know what I was missing! It allows everyone involved in the hiring process to see all applications instead of hunting for paper applications that can sometimes get misplaced or misfiled. I feel that it adds professionalism to our business.

Cons: I don't have any real complaints about ApplicantStack. It can take some time to get used to the layout, as is the case with any new product. I still probably don't know all the features, but I'm reasonably satisfied with the functionality.

Recommendations to other buyers: The key with any software company is to make sure tech support is helpful and friendly. You are bound to run into challenges here and there, so you need to know you have good support available. You should be able to customize your application to suit your needs; ApplicantStack is available to help with formatting. You should also be able to run reports to identify trends.

Pros: I love that I can manage all my recruiting ads from various websites in one convenient location.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take your time to learn the bells a whistles of this program. Customer support is awesome and always there if you need a helping hand. If you put in the time you will be rewarded time and time again!

Pros: Moving the applicants from one stage to the next is very easy. It is convenient that it interfaces with several other programs.

Cons: Email capability. Is not as powerful or flexible as we would like. If a candidate is emailed and other office staff are included in the BCC, if the candidate responds, only the one initiating the email will get the response. It would be helpful if we had the option to allow others to receive the responses.

Recommendations to other buyers: Spend time learning the capabilities of the software. The more you know, the more you will get out of it.
