Pros

It definitely does a nice job of allowing everyone to communicate on a single platform. Very user friendly and the features are great.
I love how intuitive it is, I love that it is free for under 10 employees, I think everyone who has to do scheduling for any size of company or any industry should use this software.
I love how easy everything is to use. I love being notified when my schedule has been posted and as someone who used to make the schedule each week, making and publishing schedules is easy as well.

Pros

The ability for them to request days off on the app is amazing because I do not have to remember all the days, it comes up while I'm making the schedule.
We are using the free features of home base and couldn’t not be happier. It is reliable, accessible, and just plain awesome.
I love the ease of making schedules and tracking of hours. I also love the fact of when hiring someone I can send them the invite and send them a schedule right away.

Cons

The only flaw in the software I have found is that I sometimes have trouble accessing the app from my phone.
The absolute worst part about this software has to do with the roles that employees can be assigned: there is no "training" option under the roles that I created.
Also, the wage predictions are hit or miss. I also only get half of the notifications I should, and sometimes that app refuses to post pictures to the log.

Cons

With applicant messages, there's no way to end the communications/block disqualified applicants so I've had former applicants continually message and harass with no solution from Homebase.
I don’t like surprises and that happens. That feature alone is my only complaint.
The only problem I have is once my drivers download the app it can be difficult logging on the first time.
