ApplicantPro overview

What is ApplicantPro?

Is your organization still using spreadsheets to track your applicants? Still accepting resumes via email – or worse the paper application? Think you can’t afford hiring software or an applicant tracking system? Worried about the set up, a contract, and the learning curve?

Well, you’ve come to the right place! ApplicantPro was created with you in mind. After years of watching businesses struggle to balance the need to improve the way they hire and a smaller budget, ApplicantPro was born.

Before we go any further, let’s just say that we NEVER ask you to sign a contract; we offer a FREE full featured 30-day trial of our software (without a payment required upfront); and our average client pays LESS THAN $200 a month!

We get everything set up for you (no need to bother your IT department); we charge based on your employee size, not on the number of users you need; and our goal is that you are comfortable navigating the system, so we offer unlimited support at no additional cost!

Our mobile friendly Applicant Tracking System helps you to write and save your job ads, post it to 5,000+ job boards, including Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com, and other free and paid job boards and social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. You get a customized, branded career site, online application, and a user friendly back end system that allows you to disqualify those that don’t meet your basic qualifications, rank and hightlight top candidates, share those with hiring managers, send email correspondence, and tons more.

Customizable reports, including AA, OFCCP, and EEO reports are included along with analytics and sourcing reports. Continuous updates and improvements, award winning support (we even answer our phone!), and our easy-to-use user portal help set us apart.

Pros
Easy to understand, functionality, many features to pick from. I have checked many systems, none could offer what Applicant Pro does for the money. Easy to use, houses endless applications, employees can use their mobile devices to apply, parses resumes into the applications, you can design your own reports or use the standard ones they have ready with a few clicks. Opportunities are limitless. They are always adding new features at no cost. Lastly, their customer service is second to none! Immediate responses to your questions, are always willing to help in any way possible, very friendly, professional staff who know what they are doing. Absolute best anywhere.

Cons
Wish you could design something that if people out of the area or out of the country apply for the position we are recruiting for could be flagged as ineligible. Example, recruiting for a position that is onsite in the Minneapolis/St Paul areas, and we get applications from New York or Europe and Asia - these could be sent an automatic reply that they are ineligible for the position without having to manually do so.

Response from ApplicantPRO


Thank you so much for your feedback, Karen! I would be happy to work with you to utilize our disqualification and automatic email features to help you sort out ineligible applicants and save you time! We love working with you and appreciate your business!

We feel that it could be an extremely useful tool if the bugs were worked out of it. You get a very large hiring pool but a lot of it is not the pool we were looking for.

Pros
The software was very inclusive of a lot of regions to ensure that you are filling in the most amount of information to cover all aspects of the job search and posting that you are doing. It is a well thought out application.

Cons
Even when we set the parameters for a certain type of candidate that we were looking for(specific trade skills, years experience etc), we would get a lot of candidates that did not come close to fitting exactly what we were looking for. It was exhausting and very time consuming having to spend some much time weeding out the people that did not fit what we were looking for. We also reached out to a lot that never got back to us after supposedly showing interest.

Response from ApplicantPRO


Hi, Scott! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our software. We're sorry to hear that you did not receive the quality of applicants you were looking for. We do have features that will help with this process and would love to discuss them with you. I would love to have someone reach out to you to go over the new features and improvements.
Thanks again for your feedback and we wish you all the best with your hiring endeavors.

I would strongly recommend the product based on my past experience.

Pros
The ease of the program as it pertains to the use and tracking of all the applicant information that is available.

Cons
Sometimes it takes CS a bit to get back to you. In a time sensitive issue that can be a little aggravating.

Flat rate pricing make this a perfect fit for small businesses

Review Source: Capterra

I'm very happy with my experience. Hiring and getting employment paperwork completed has never been easier.

Pros
Easily post ads to 100 job boards. No need to post a job in multiple locations and have applications coming in from different sources. Analytics help me understand which sources are working best at finding new employees. With the screening process, I save time not having to weed out unqualified applicants and can spend more time connecting with only the people who match my needs. Flat rate pricing means as my company grows, I don't get charged more per user. This is the only company I have found that offers this pricing model. Combine a pricing structure that doesn't break the bank with an amazing team that answers all my user questions and it's a winning combination in my book. Customer service is outstanding. Have a question? ApplicantPro makes it easy to meet with the right person on their team. An easy to use online scheduling system makes it easy to block off the right amount of time you need to learn how to use the software.

Cons
I would like to see features added that make it easy to schedule pre-boarding and onboarding emails and tutorials for new hires. Once a new hire has accepted a job offer, being able to automate and structure a timeline to send emails with micro-learning articles would be great

Response from ApplicantPRO


Thank you, Karl for your review of our software. We appreciate your feedback and love to hear the things you enjoy about it like, posting to multiple job boards with one push, analytics for reporting sources, our pricing structure and more!

Benefits

*Reduced Time to Hire - In every way ApplicantPRO reduces the amount of time that you spend hunting for new employees. From saving your job postings for future publishing, to automated push to free and paid job boards, to automating the push to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, to simplifying your reporting and tracking, to filtering your candidates, to us creating your website career page for you, ApplicantPRO will simplify your workflow and will help you get the right candidate, in the right position, faster.

*Eliminates Spreadsheets & Paperwork - Many of our customers used to have several spreadsheets that they would track each applicant, each step in their process, dates of applied, dates hired, who was hired, reasons why an applicant wasn't hired, etc. ApplicantPRO virtually eliminates the need for you to track anything manually. We track it for you and you can pull the data into a spreadsheet or into a report whenever you need it.

*Improved Quality of Hires - With the simple way to publish your open positions, you can easily get your open position to several job boards (both free and paid) and even post your position to social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Once the applicants apply, you are able to filter out the applicants based on their abilities, experience, and the way they answered certain questions. Right from the start, the quality of hires will be greatly improved.

*Single Push to Job Boards and Social Media - Once you have written your job posting, it is simple to publish your open position. ApplicantPRO can automate this process for you or can allow you to select which jobs are posted to which boards each posting. LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook postings can also be automated with ApplicantPRO as well.

*Branded Career Site - Our team will create this site for you and will make it look like an extension of your own company website. It will carry your logo, colors and overall look and feel of your site. This is done by us without any effort from you or your IT department.

*Integration with other software - We have the ability to pass information to other software systems that your organization is currently using including onboarding, payroll, HRIS, video interviewing, assessments, and others.
