Pros

Excellent experience from set up, training and amazing support. Love the training videos, customer check ins, it all works so much better than other systems I have used.
The vast career sites they pull from, the quality and quantity of applicants who's information is always complete because of the ease of use for them, it makes ease of use for me a joy.
ApplicantPro cares about their customers and their support is amazing. I can chat and ask anything that comes up in my process and they are available to help in matter of few minutes.

Pros

Thanks to the WorkBright team for always having my back and helping me feel confident and supported as I explore my new opportunity.
The best part of this software is the user friendly platform. Our personalized forms can be uploaded and given to each employee as desired.
Great feedback from new hires on the ease of submission of the required forms. It seems much less daunting than getting a huge packet of papers & it has saved us on printing costs.

Cons

User interface is very cluttered. Apparently requires a lot of setup on the HR side as I am often shown the wrong positions or unable to properly interact with candidates for my positions.
When we post a position for internal applicants only, I miss being able to go directly to our own IT staff and have them post the link for our employees to apply.
Nothing, I have yet to find any problems with the software.

Cons

Inability to have multiple seasons on the same account.
Sometimes staff puts information in that is obviously wrong (current year for birth year) and only THEY can fix that.
Perhaps that we still keep all hard copies of I-9's in one binder so should there be a Department of Labor audit, we don't have two places to access I-9's (software AND HR office).

Near total Train Wreck of a product

Reviewed 4 months ago

of 23 qualified applicants, we could only get 7 to figure out how to complete the application process. Of those 7, we were able to hire 1. There can be a large variety of reasons for a company to not convert applicants to employees, but 16 of 23 never had an opportunity because they could not complete the 2 stage application process because of the mobile app/Indeed limitations and dysfunctional performance.

Pros

It sounds like a good idea. I like that applicants can complete onboarding on their phone

Cons

Anybody applying on a phone thru indeed is at about a 70% risk of not completing and getting confused. It sounds like this might be true for other job boards as well, but I cant be sure. There is a two stage application process that is different for mobile users than desktop users. Most of our applicants get 'lost' in the process and we never complete with them. This after calls, emails and texts...

Vendor response

Thank you Randy for you candid write up. I can hear your frustration and disappointment. Yes, as you indicated, these are two seperate products: Workbright is our core business which focuses on Onboarding, and Applicant Pro that we use as a lightly integrated third party ATS provider. We use Applicant Pro as it works well for many of our Onboarding customers, but as you expressed, it did not serve you well. WorkBright Onboarding works easily with almost any ATS, so in no way do we want you to feel limited in your choices. Regarding this situation, we will do everything in our power to make it right and are happy to refund you completely for your ATS, as well as support you in a transition to another, if that is what you choose.
