What is ApplicantStack?

ApplicantStack provides end-to-end hiring/onboarding automation for fast, large-scale hiring. Track hundreds of applications and resumes for multiple positions simultaneously. New hires can complete paperless onboarding on their mobile devices.

Key benefits of using ApplicantStack

* Create customized postings from scratch or use templates to build your own library of job descriptions for all of your positions. Use a single signon for multiple job board accounts. Post jobs to your company website via your public job board, branded by us to look like you.

* Build custom pre-screening questionnaires with weighted scoring, knock-out questions, and points for resume keywords. ApplicantStack calculates the scores for easy comparison.

* All applications flow into ApplicantStack, regardless of where the candidate applied from. Use Boolean searches for resume skills keywords, geographic location, commuting radius, etc.

* Sort by any candidate field including application date, average score, or average feedback. Reduce hiring time by 20% or more while screening and assessing thoroughly and accurately. Create more diverse and talented teams.

* Collaborate with your hiring team using candidate scorecards, task reminders, and interview scheduling with Office 365 or Google Calendar integration.

* Keep top talent engaged and moving through the process quickly with texting, stage change auto-emails, and interview self-scheduling.

* Run pre-built or ad hoc reports. Compare the performance of job boards, social media sites, careers page, and niche job boards.

* Once your top applicant is hired, proceed to paperless onboarding without delay—no manual data entry! New hires access the new employee onboarding portal with a mobile device and e-sign and submit all tax forms and paperwork electronically BEFORE their first day at work.

* Get the best talent in the door quickly and at the lowest cost. Spend your time on the personal recruiting element instead of endless paperwork.

Pros
I love that this software is so easily to use. I have used some other software's at previous employers that were not as user friendly and ApplicantStack has been so much better.

I love how easily it is to pull employees information, how perfectly the communication goes- it is an easy workflow. I do enjoy how easy the reports are to pull as well.

I appreciate that the customer service is always fast and responsive to help new users. I received little training on how to use this tool and I've needed to seek out help from them many times.

Cons
I can't purge my system of client/caregiver entries that are not relevant, so they clutter my search feed. There is no report for client contacts - this is inconvenient in an emergency setting.

The biggest complaint that we have is that there is only one administrator allowed.

Very user friendly! I've worked in several different ATS and this has been the easiest one yet!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It's very easy to use and is step-by-step throughout the entire process. Their customer service is very helpful and accommodates most all requests we have asked for. I love the email templates with mail merge features, the flags we are able to customize, and that you can trigger automatic emails throughout the stages.

Cons

I wish it was easier to add pictures, embed videos, links, etc. It's also not user friendly on the reporting side. I'd like to be able to have more functionality to pull different reports. For example, I would like to have a report for jobs that we are still currently recruiting for (still actively trying to find a candidate). I don't necessarily want to see all "open" jobs because in ApplicantStack,...

Hi Meagan! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. I will forward your feedback to our development team. We take feedback very seriously. Also, I would suggest contacting support on how you can add pictures, embed videos, and add links using our formatting tools. Changing your filters to show inactive jobs might also help with your concern about seeing open vs. closed jobs.

Great ATS system that is highly recommended!!

Reviewed a year ago

Excellente!! I have been with Applicant Stack for 5 plus years and they have always been great for our company needs.

Pros

This ATS database has a ton of pros such as great cost, easy for recruiters to use, you can custom make the database to what you want. I have been with Applicant stack for 5 plus years and have no plan to change anytime soon.

Cons

I wish I had some applicant stack gear, sometimes we may have some small technical errors when the system shuts down but who doesn't, if it does its back up in no time.

Vendor response

Hi Angela, thanks for such a great review for ApplicantStack!

users, rights, printing, accounts, licenses, different company locations

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have had to learn on my own most of what I know. We have had this program for a bout a year and it to me is not super user friendly mainly because we never had any training and our hands our tied with some of the features. I don't know if we didn't buy everything or if we don't have the permissions. My IT guy has tried to give me all the rights he can and its still not working. I don't think that is a good idea that only one location has access to things that I need here at my location. How can we get the proper rights? Can we buy another license? Is there a way that each location can have their own program and questions?

Pros

I like that the program allows us to make our own questions and we can e mail applicants directly from the program.

Cons

I do not like that applicant's get lost or locked out easily. When I transfer an employee sometimes they get lost. I have to call the corporate office to find the new employee and they have to re set them before I can move on. Also we have 6 locations and for some reason we are only allowed to have 4 administrators. I do the hiring here and I do not have the capability to print or edit forms once they...

My review

Reviewed 2 years ago

we used to use Applicant Pro and it was so much more user friendly. We switched because Applicant Stack would incorporate with ADP, but we have NEVER been able to get it to bring over the information we need.

Pros

I like how it can send the applicant the on-boarding paperwork and everything is completed on line. I like the texting feature

Cons

It only posts our job postings to 5 sites. this is not enough It takes forever to download the on-boarding paperwork (usually around 20 minutes)

Vendor response

Hi Julie! Thank you for writing a review about ApplicantStack. We have many job boards built into ApplicantStack. Perhaps some of them are not activated. Also, we are continually adding more job boards as requested. Please let us know which ones you are interested in. I also want to point out the manual posting links, so you are not limited to our integrated job boards. The possibilities are endless! Please contact support so we can get more information from you about the issue you are experiencing.
