John Kimmel

Alongside brings sanity to the in-house hiring process for start-ups and small business alike.

2017-04-20

Our story: We used Alongside (formerly Qimple) to hire our first non-founder employees with great success in mid-2015, and then used it once more to hire another round of team members in mid-2016, again with great success (5 roles, almost 2000 applicants, concurrently).

Pros

Ease of use. Great user experience. Well-thought-out pipeline that works right out of the box. Supports team collaboration on hiring decisions at every step. Scales dramatically from 1 role/10 candidates to 10 roles/5000 candidates effortlessly.

Cons

Site on mobile could support better UI for on-the-fly capture when interviewing on the road, but it hasn't been troublesome.

Alongside for the win!

2017-04-20

Our only complaint is pricing for startups like ours who aren't advertising on third party job boards - ie. feels like we're paying to simply have a place for our job postings to live (without marketing them).

Recruiting at your finger tips

2017-04-20

Alongside made my life as Director of HR easier.... from writing postings and then publishing them in the electronic world using a simple pick menu; for collecting and cataloging resumes in one database to allow for timely feedback from my team; to communicating with my candidates throughout the recruiting process.
