Great Applicant Tracking System.

2019-07-03

Their customer service and training has been fantastic.

Pros

The dashboard and reporting functions make it easy to pull reports and data for management and board reports.

Cons

The only con is that you can't delete old jobs or job templates, but only archive them. I don't believe you are able attach documents to e-mails sent out, which can require you to send a separate e-mail.

Everything we need and more

2019-07-10

When you factor in the time it saves, ApplicantPRO is actually cheaper than our old manual methods of recruiting. I would highly recommend ApplicantPRO to any small business looking to incorporate and ATS into their recruiting and hiring process.

Pros

Very user friendly and easy to use Easily customized to fit my business Awesome customer support Assessment integration Indeed cost included, plus dozens of other online job boards

Cons

Times out too quickly, have to log back in several times a day Sometimes Assessments are not automatically delivered and I have to resend them Reports are cumbersome and hard to configure to my needs

Pros

Reports, ease of documentation, presentation of resumes that are sent to the managers for review, customer service and training.

User Friendly ATS

2019-07-17

Overall, the system is user friendly and simple to use. I think my only constructive feedback is more timely responsive follow up from Customer Support team. There have been times where our organization has had to reach out multiple times in order to get in contact with our Rep with questions regarding features and pricing for upgrades.

Pros

Ability for client to create custom disposition statuses. Ease of creating/ opening reqs.

Cons

Limited reporting functionality when trying to generate adhoc reports for various recruiting metrics.

I consider ApplicantPRO a great option to keep track of job openings and applicants.

Pros

It also allows data export to spreadsheet format.

Cons

When a company has a job posting, using the pages that ApplicantPRO makes available, they don't look cool neither on desktop or mobile.

I love the features that Applicant Pro has to offer. You really get your bang for the buck

2018-03-11

Pros

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.

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.

Great product for the price

2019-06-14

We spend a lot of money on a particular vendor for job advertising. Analytics are telling us that we are making the majority of our hires from employee referrals.

Pros

It is our first ATS. It was easy to set-up and transition to.

Cons

Only thing we are currently facing is the referral portal which requires a separate log-in for our employees.

Usually don't give five stars across the board, but in this case it is warranted!

2017-07-18

Pros

Applicant Pro software is an affordable, easy to use, robust system that greatly simplifies the sometimes onerous recruiting, tracking and reporting functions of Human Resources.

Cons

So far I have not found anything to cite as negative. I suppose I could say one thing that is a negative is that this Cons box requires me to have a hundred character response!

Why ApplicantPRO is meant for YOU!

2016-11-25

After converting to ApplicantPRO and utilizing their Assessment testing, there was a significant difference in the applicants we were hiring.

Pros

The Assessment Testing is one of the best features, it helps find individuals whose beliefs and core values are similar to ours.

Cons

Every now and then we would hit a dry spell, wish you had Recruitment Consultants to better aid in reaching out to potential candidates.

Every Bell & Whistle Imaginable --the RECRUITER's ATS

2019-07-03

I am able to get recruitment reports for our executive team as easily as I can post a job.

Pros

I have used many different ATS software programs and what makes this program stand out is that it is so simple to use - so powerful - and the customer service is unparalleled.

Cons

HOWEVER, we talked to customer service and probably the time this is posted, they will have this option available.

ApplicantPRO was a great investment

2019-09-19

Before ApplicantPRO we did not use an ATS and managed the recruitment process manually by receiving resumes by email and posting jobs one by one on each of the job boards.

Pros

Being able to easily see where our applicants are coming from has allowed us to better spend our recruiting budget in the places that count.

Cons

The only feature I wish we could get better integration with is Indeed sponsored ads since we use them heavily for our recruiting and it can be a bit awkward to sponsor to Indeed thru this ATS.

Perfect for Recruiting

2017-03-30

I have used several systems in the past, but prefer Applicant Pro because it is very easy to use, the support team is quick and effective, plus friendly.

Pros

Easy to use, provides excellent tracking info, can create reports, extensive connections to other job boards.

Cons

Some complications arise when trying to route with or through other Talent Networks....not necessarily Applicant Pro's fault....it's a complicated process with many outside hands involved.
