ApplicantStack - Great 'Off the Shelf' Job Board Solution

Jun 02, 2010
4/5
Overall
4 / 5
Ease of Use
5 / 5
Customer Support

Pros: Product set up was taken care of by ApplicantStack and was painless. They created my template quickly and were amenable to make some changes I requested. Customer service is excellent. Not only did they take care of problems quickly they actually modified a couple features based on feedback.

The default workflow is set up in a logical fashion which really helped as we weren't sure what the best process would be. The automation features are useful and a real time saver. The reports and ability to add custom fields to the back and front end allow customization.

The ability to build reusable questionnaires, email and job listing templates is great. The recently added layout templates add so good additional functionality for more advanced formatting of the front end.

The application also generates job specific links and email addresses so that you can post them in other forums.

There is more but I didn't intend to make this a feature list. Good, easy to use solution.

Cons: I would like to see the question page layout feature continue to evolve to include some type of editor - not really a 'con' as this is brand new functionality.

I think the questionnaire needs some 'label' and 'image' components so you can add additional instructions to your app.

A multipage form option would also be useful. We have a multipage job application which would mean lots of scrolling down. We opted to use a smaller initial form and just send the full application to those who pass a certain point in the hiring process but it would be nice to have all our legal mumbo jumbo in there.

There are a few areas where I'd like more control - perhaps adding header and footer areas where you can customize the content.

These are more 'features that I'd like added' than cons.

Overall: Overall recommendation is 9.5 out of 10. The product does the job. It has good core features. Customer service is superb. If you need a job board and can't have custom programming done, or don't want to buy a big, bloated or overly complex system that you'll have to install and maintain then I think this is a great choice. We've had it online for about two weeks now. We have had a few hundred applicants for 4 job postings. We were able to quickly process the apps and hhave hired three people so far without having huge piles of paper.

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.

Pros: It's very easy to use and is step-by-step throughout the entire process. Their customer service is very helpful and accommodates most all requests we have asked for. I love the email templates with mail merge features, the flags we are able to customize, and that you can trigger automatic emails throughout the stages.

Cons: I wish it was easier to add pictures, embed videos, links, etc. It's also not user friendly on the reporting side. I'd like to be able to have more functionality to pull different reports. For example, I would like to have a report for jobs that we are still currently recruiting for (still actively trying to find a candidate). I don't necessarily want to see all "open" jobs because in ApplicantStack, they remain open until the job is "closed/filled". I do not want to see jobs that have a candidate that has already accepted an offer and is in the background or pending start stage. Unfortunately for now, it's a manual process of my recruiters reviewing over their "active recruiting" jobs and sending me weekly update reports by email. We are also still working out the ability to integrate with ADP (our HRIS system).

Hi Meagan! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. I will forward your feedback to our development team. We take feedback very seriously. Also, I would suggest contacting support on how you can add pictures, embed videos, and add links using our formatting tools. Changing your filters to show inactive jobs might also help with your concern about seeing open vs. closed jobs.

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.

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

Pros: I like having the ability to post multiple job listings to a variety of job boards all at once. Also, the ability to manage your applications and candidate pipleline, create custom folders, and communicate with candidates directly through the application. Easy integration with email, creating personalized email templates, as well as creating applicant screening questions to filter out candidates that do not qualify for specific roles.

ApplicantStack is definitely worth the investment, but may take a back seat to some of the other products in this catergory.

Cons: Limited job boards that actually attract viable candidates. Although there are multiple job boards, there are only 1-2 that produce applicants and resumes. Job listings do not seem to post in "real time." Therefore, it may delay finding candidates for the more urgent openings.

Overall: An added resource/tool for our recruiting department. Great secondary ATS/TMS for applicant lifecycle. Straightforward features and easy to use, even for a novice user. Additionally, ApplicantStack is more cost effective than the competition and well worth the investment.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. We love all of the Pros you listed! Now to address the Cons. ApplicantStack provides the job feed to the third party job boards but unfortunately it is up to them once they receive the feed. All the job boards have a different process when they publish the jobs. Please contact support since we could reach out to the job boards on your behalf to see if there are any issues that we can address. I do want to point out that this is the first time I am hearing about a delay in the posting so I believe this can be resolved.

Pros: My experience with this software has been decent. The functionality is pretty straightforward and easy to use. It has multiple options for posting job openings on various job boards, and lets you post in specific locations, general regions, or nationally. The integration features with other applications saves a lot of time as well. I like the option to create personalized applicant screeners to help filter out unqualified candidates. Software can be used as an applicant database to save candidate resumes for future use.

Cons: Interface is very basic, and does not offer many features as the competing services. There is no advanced options when creating job postings which may limit the target audience, especially for more technical positions. It would be nice to have more menus and drop-down features. Also, job board options are limited, so it can be frustrating if there are multiple users.

Overall: Benefits outweigh the disadvantages. I feel this is a great entry-level software package, great for smaller companies targeting local candidates for general positions. The cost is low in comparison similar products, so there's a good return on investment. Most importantly, it is very user friendly, and gets the job done quickly.

Pros: Eliminates paper applications, easy to send one email to multiple candidates, easy to use. One of the best decisions we made to improve our Recruiting & Hiring process.

Cons: 1) Expensive for multiple users, we have limited our users due to the high cost;
2) Wish there were a better way to capture notes within candidate records that aren't 'buried' in tabs and mouse clicks. Putting notes into the application fields ends up pushing the row size too large. Is there a way to create a sort of "sidebar" for each candidate where the user could put in a lot more text for notes? Also, have a similar "sidebar" on the main screen.
3) Reminders - would like reminders to be sent through the system to the Hiring Managers about their interviews, etc.
4. Wish there were a way to integrate with our payroll software.

Hi Cathy! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. I will forward your feedback to our development team. We take feedback very seriously. We also pride ourselves in being one of the most affordable systems available. You can easily view candidate notes in the History tab. The filters at the top allow you to see only the notes if you prefer. We do have task reminders. These are emailed to the user and they can easily see their tasks on their own home screen. Please contact support if you need any further information.

Pros: It is very simple to use. Everything is at my fingertips with a few clicks. I've heard rave reviews from our applicants about the ease of filling out an application and onboarding paperwork.

Cons: I really don't have any cons for Applicant Stack. The only thing that bothers me is that I have to sign back in all the time. Each time an applicant or reference calls, I have to sign in again. But it takes too long for it to figure out that it signed me out and the applicants are on hold on the phone while App Stack is signing me out and then I have to sign back in.. Maybe make the timeframe longer before you sign out users.

Overall: We love the ease of potential applicants being able to complete the application right from home. We no longer have to keep track of paper applications and resumes.
We love the fact that our 20 some pages of onboarding/hired paperwork is right online. App Stack has saved us a lot of time from filing, printing and keeping track of all of the paperwork.
Thank You Applicant Stack for making our lives here at Woodloch easier!

Pros: Easy to use, but doesn't have the enterprise capabilities a company really needs. Sort capabilities are nice, I do like the fact you can attach certain predetermined questions for the applicant to fill out, however, when you want to "
"knock them out" for not meeting criteria (certification, citizenship, relocation, etc), the system should automatically class them as "ko'd" and screen them out, which it does not.

Cons: I have had misspellings that go out and don't correct across the various job boards. Links that post or unpost cannot activate properly, only way to know is if a candidate sees it and contacts us.

Overall: It is good for a small company without much activity, however, I am responsible for 5 lines of business and multiple locations, my company should have an enterprise system, rather than one for smaller company use.

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: 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.

Great resource! A game changer for our business!

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.

Applicant Stack is a wonderful tool.

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: I love all of the tools that ApplicantStack has available to use. Reports, automated email campaigns, consolidated job postings, online on-boarding, etc. There is so much available to the user of ApplicantStack. All of the tools they have have created much more efficiency in our office. They make applicant tracking a breeze.

Cons: I do not have any real cons to the software. Some of the processes for creating custom on-boarding documents can be a little frustrating at times. I am just happy that we have a way to upload and create documents that I can go in and add digital signatures to for our applicants. It has saved us so much time.

Overall: Increased efficiency of the hiring process in our company.

Pros: Applicant Stack is well organized and I like how it integrates seamlessly into our website. We also benefit greatly from the job board plug in, specifically with Indeed and this is provided at no additional charge.

Hiring managers are able to easily view candidates, organize what stage they are in and proceed with the recruiting process.

I also find it easy to add positions because of the template library.

Cons: I think the candidate experience could be better. I wish candidates could return to their application and add documents or change information. Once they submit their application, they can't return to it.

Overall: Capterra has a nice interface and is easy to use.

Pros: All of the information needed is right at my fingertips. The main screen shows a spreadsheet of what positions you have open and each step the applicants are in. It makes it easier to see the bigger picture as well as maneuver to the information that you need quickly.

Cons: I haven't really found a function of ApplicantStack that I do not like. When I needed something that was beyond my reporting function, their Helpdesk was able to get me the information I needed. They were also very polite and efficient which is a huge bonus.

Overall: The applicant stage process is an easy flow and really easy to use. I find it helpful to see the big picture of what positions I have and what stage my applicants are in.

Pros: Software is flexible, tech support can help you get your application to do basically whatever it is you could want to do. Once you get a handle on things as well, reporting and such is very useful and easy to get into a flow with.

Cons: It's a little clunky, but they've worked on updating it and it's far more sleek now than it was when we signed on. I do wish reporting showed us a little more within the app vs having to export spreadsheets, etc.

Overall: Helps us manage our entire pipeline with our team of 30+ recruiters and be able to switch applicants between jobs, recruiters, positions, etc. with ease. Cost-wise it's really helped us grow and help allocate a lot of money elsewhere while using this as our central point.

Pros: the software is easy to set up and use - - the listings are easy to create and link to recruitment ads. the company has about 35 employees so we are small. Applicant stack does the job - we have excellent record on hiring from our own efforts verses head hunter.

Cons: Its all great actually -- I do not have any issues or suggestions to change much of anything. I use ApplicantStack for keeping resumes on file - -I review old resumes. It would be easier if all resumes had to be in a word document so I would not need to download - I could just attach file to email if I choose to send candidate an email. Otherwise it is fine the way it is.

Hi Barbara! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. We are thrilled that you find ApplicantStack easy to use, set up, and use! You can state that you only want word files. I am not sure I understand why you need to download the file if it were in any other format. Can you please contact support so we can get more information? You should be able to view any resume regardless of the format.

I have been using applicant stack for 1.5 years and it's an overall easy experience.

Pros: I like that it's a quick way to get applicants to call for interviews. I also like that you can post jobs to multiple sources. If an old applicant is missing information, I like that their old profiles are saved in order to gather all the information you need. This software is an easy way to keep track of the 100's of employee's that we have.

Cons: Every time there is an update, formatting gets messed up and it's harder to use. For example, I have to upload some of the forms to our corporate office, and the new formatting was causing all of the files to get rejected that I was uploading. It takes a while for forms to get fixed, which I understand since there is a lot that goes on to format all of this.

Overall: Easy way to keep track of all our employee's (as far as new hires and people to not pursue).

Pros: The ease at which you could view the conversation history was great. The first page also had all of the relevant information needed to start your search throughout the database. I found that it was much easier than other databases to search by key words within resumes.

Cons: The User Interface was dated and didn't reflect a progressive company, which most companies strive to align with. There are other UI's that have much sharper and cleaner looks, and ultimately when you are using it constantly on a daily basis, those things matter. I also found that the actual display of the resume was dated as well. Overall, not really lacking in functionality in my opinion but it just needed a 'make-over'.

Overall: We housed all of our employees or prospective employees in this database so it was something that we relied on heavily. As our team grows, we need to have the scalability with our database to grow with us and I think there was concern that it wouldn't be able to keep up with the functions we needed.

Pros: I researched a number of Applicant Tracking Systems for my organization, Praescient Analytics, about three years ago. We were a growing start up who was looking for something that could keep up with our rapid growth, but weren't looking to break the bank. ApplicantStack has done 90% of what we needed for a fraction of the cost. Their customer service is excellent. I would highly recommend purchasing ApplicantStack if you're currently trying to do without a formal system or are spending far too much on a platform that has capabilities that just aren't necessary for companies under 200 hundred employees. ApplicantStack doesn't lock you into long term contracts, and it allows you to adjust your level of service to meet your needs.

Cons: ApplicantStack doesn't integrate into other systems outside of Excel exports. If you're looking for your ATS to work seamlessly with other systems, then this won't be your best bet.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take advantage of their technical people so that you can link ApplicantStack up with your Careers Page.

We have used ApplicantStack for several years and have been overall very satisfied.

Pros: The cost of the software is very affordable. In other words, you get a lot of bang for your buck! The software is very easy to learn and use.

Cons: We wish it had a few more features. For example, the ability on the application to have a link to open up a dialog box for a statement instead of having it on the application. It makes the application appear very lengthy. I would also like to have a click through application instead of all on one page.

Overall: When we went to using an online applicant tracking system we needed something that was affordable for approval from senior leaders. This software did just that. Excellent service, product and was very affordable.

Pros: Easy to access and receive applications. Easy to export applications. The information stays in the system indefinitely, so I never have trouble accessing a application from years prior. Application is customize-able.

Cons: Wish there was an ability to get an applicants real signature with a program such as docusign, we run into trouble when requesting background information because companies do not always accept digital signatures. When customizing, it can get a little confusing with the amount of 'applicant stage' options.

Overall: Pretty dependable, we are able to receive applications online via our website with no issues.

Pros: Applicant stake is very user friendly , it is also very quick and easy to build. I have been build and configured Applicant stake for 4 health care organizations in the past 3 years and what i can say is Applicant stake is by far the best ATS in the market. It is not only very affordable but it is very easy to configure and use. I highly recommend it for everyone looking to grow their pipeline to get on it.

Cons: Nothing to note, i have used the system everyday for the past 3 years and it is such a easy systeam to use and makes my job so much easier i have no complains.

Pros: Easy for all ability levels to on-board to. The customization ability to our needs helps and we are able to change it immediately if need be.

Cons: It's not really the software or the company, but we are part of a franchise that dictates how we use the product and sometimes it would be nice to have the option to customize it a bit more to our office's needs. Otherwise no real complaints!

Overall: We went from using paper only applications to this system. It has made both the application process and on-boarding process a breeze! The time consumed throughout the workday that was dedicated before has be eliminated by 75% which is a huge cost savings!

Pros: Automating the entire recruitment cycle. Giving managers direct access to their candidates, and giving managers the ability to track candidates during the entire process, from job posting to hire. Notes about each candidate can be added and tracked over time. Ability to search for specific words in a candidate application is valuable.

Cons: It was a little but of a challenge to create the application form initially to our specifications. However, it was well worth this little bit of work at the beginning!

Overall: Automation of processes, time saving, transparency to managers.

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: Easy to set up. No contracts - easy to upgrade or cancel. Utilizes multiple job boards. Integrates to other systems - including Indeed Sponsored ads. Great support. Same features and abilities as more expensive ATS systems.

Cons: Can't embed graphics into job postings - including logos. Uses major job boards, but still need to manually post to "niche" boards (although they do give you a link to use).

Overall: We were spending a fortune to post ads to Indeed and other boards, so Applicant Stack allowed us to centralize our spending. It also allows me to go to one site to pull applicants - rather than 3 - 4 (plus, it has reduced the duplicate applications!). It also allows me (the main recruiter) to better coordinate candidates with the hiring managers, as we have a central database.

Comments: If you're debating whether or not you need this type of software, go for it. Instead of piles of paper to sort through, it's all digital. So much more efficient!

Pros: ApplicantStack helps keep all of our applicants organized. It is a huge step up from paper applications. We are able to post to different job boards as often as needed. We also love the onboarding portal; we can send new hires their paperwork online.

Cons: You may need some technical knowledge in order to edit the application yourself, but AppStack has people available to help you make changes if you need assistance.

I have used Applicant Stack at 3 companies now. The value you get for the cost is invaluable.

Pros: Being able to track all the history for each applicant and the stages have helped up to keep on top of the process. Having the system inform when the candidate had previously applied helps to avoid duplication of work and streamline.

Cons: I would like to be able to prepare and send offer letters from the system. Currently we prepare the offer letter and attached as a document.

Overall: Being a smaller Home Health agency, we have to be very mindful of expenses. This software package is very cost effective and has saved us unnecessary work of tracking applicants and their stages in Excel.

Cons: Software works great. Email technical support is 24 hours or less. However, don't try calling them as it is not very responsive. However their online support Q&A answers most questions.

Pros: It's easy to log in and remember the site name. It integrates with AxisCare.

Cons: 1) It's not possible to create and publish your own application, you have to allow designers to spend days doing the work for you and then get charged extra on top of the premiums you pay for service.
2) You can't allow applicants to use LinkedIn/Indeed/Facebook to auto fill an application, this is a pretty basic option that almost every other applicant tracking system has implemented.
3) Customer service is slow and often times just says "we'll get back to you"

Overall: It's just what I was given when I took this job. The whole thing seems pretty outdated and not user friendly in any way.

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!

Pros: ApplicantStack offers all the functions that we need for a small business, at a budget that is affordable. It allows us to communicate with candidates via multiple sources and maintain a single record of dialogue. Recruiters are able to easily assign candidates to hiring managers while tracking progress throughout the recruiting lifecycle.
The job posting function allows us to widely distribute openings efficiently.

Cons: 1) Some of the steps needed to make updates to our configuration can be cumbersome, but this is not a major issue, as these adjustments are infrequent (less than once a month).
2) The resume parsing feature does not always accurately capture information that other (more expensive) systems tend to get correct. This is not a major issue, as I can manually adjust the inputs.

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.

Pros: Clean cut, easy to use. My Customer Service agent is the best. He always responds quickly to fix our issues and always professional and great to work with.

Cons: Applicants often have issues completing the application. They tend to miss the part about it being required to have an email address for references. They fail to do the electronic signature part as well. I have had several that place a period behind the state abbreviation, so it stops them from going any further and they cannot realize why it will not allow them to complete the application. Many of our applicants are the older generation that are not very computer friendly. Things need to be very simplistic for them to use. I wish there was a way for me to tell them exactly what they did wrong, so I could assist them with completing the application.

App Stack seems to get better with time.

Pros: The ability to score candidates and present them with custom assessments that will auto-score/rate the candidates and even include auto-knockout questions.
The ability to filter candidates at a very quick glance based on the assessment scores and other factors like stages of the interview process.
Requesting and submitting feedback for candidates after interviews and the ability to review all of them on one page.
Posting to all job boards from one location.
The library of templates for emails, assessments, and job posts makes it easy to re-use content from previous postings.

Cons: Scheduling events is a little clunky since you have to wait for the email to then add it to your gcal or outlook.
Emailing candidates directly through applicantstack is not very smooth either. It does not offer the same type of reply functions you would expect from your normal email client and often times the receivers see it go to their SPAM filter.

Overall: Our hiring and interviewing process is a collaborative approach and ALL of the documents and steps are defined within ApplicantStack. We have used other tools, but nothing as comprehensive as this one. We really do start and finish the recruiting process entirely within ApplicantStack.

Pros: Good value. It offers a good number of features, is easy to use, and convenient. Also love that it's mobile friendly.

Cons: I don't like that if a candidate wants to apply for multiple jobs, they have multiple different applications/profiles. To see notes about the person you'd have to go into every individual job they applied for. Wish this could be changed.

Overall: I work for a non-profit so finding money in the budget for recruiting tools can be a challenge. Applicant Stack is the perfect happy medium. It's not super pricey like other ATS but it does a nice job of housing information in one place and getting rid of those awful paper files. We were a little slow in getting here but hello, 21st century!

Pros: We use this as a multi-unit platform for our hotels and Corporate Office. It is reasonably easy to use. Our jobs are sent out to other job boards helping us generate applicants.

Cons: Some restrictions on ease of use. The update that was done a year ago or so was not well received. Several functions are now more difficult to navigate. Please add more job boards (like monster etc.) to increase number of exposures and candidates.

Overall: One central platform to advertise jobs for multiple units.

Pros: Tracking, ease of reading and navigating. I like that you can look back and determine who was repeat apps, and that you can classify them easily based on where they are in the process. I like that you an set up emails and such to send auto.

Cons: Can be somewhat cumbersome to get jobs posted. It is at times slow based on how much info you can put in the listing. Would like to be able to put pictures on there, but can't because it makes it operate too slow.

Pros: Applicant Stack is an user friendly software that really helps me keep track of my current and past applicants. I like how the software allows me to add notes in the history section so I am always on top of what is happening with my applicants

Cons: I dislike how applicant stack will roll out a new update without emailing the users with information about it. This lead to me having confusion and I was stuck figuring it out myself. I also dislike how in the onboarding section, when I add documents it will freeze the page.

Overall: I benefited from this software because I was able to learn my job faster and keep on track with my daily responsibilities.

Pros: It is easy to move around the site. All of our supervisors can have access to the applicants all at once. I also really like that it keeps all past applicants as well.

Cons: I don't know that I can think of anything at this time. We haven't had any major issues to deal with.

Overall: The most convenient for our industry is the ability for all our supervisors to view the applications. When we used a paper application they slowly got routed from supervisor to supervisor. We have greatly reduced our hiring time frame.
