Pros

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 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.

We will keep using ApplicantStack even after the pandemic ends. My favorite feature is screening employees, we're able to quickly and carefully choose the best candidates for each position.

Pros

BambooHR has some great integrations (Slack, for instance) that allow me to see when my co-workers are out of the office or even celebrating an anniversary or birthday.

I hadn't used it until my current company and I am really happy to be able to utilize it. There are so many great features and I love it.

TS

Tori S.

The software is clean and simple and serves as a great resource for company information, coworker contacts, and a comprehensive company calendar outlining anniversaries, birthdays, and days off.

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.

SA

Sheris A.

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

CB

Chrissy B.

We have alot of the emails go into candidates spam or told they did not receive it.

PG

Cons

Some of the updates would cause havoc on the system and delay some of our onboarding.

SB

Schuyler B.

The only con I have noticed is from guys in HR complaining that it does not provide in-house payroll management.

JZ

Joseph Z.

At times I struggle with the signing portion of documents.

ApplicantStack

Reviewed 3 years ago

My company needed an applicant tracking system (ATS), and my PEO uses ApplicantStack, so it was the first and only solution I could use with them. I ultimately found more success using BambooHR. I also evaluated other solutions in Breezy, BambooHR, Simplicant, and Workable, but I ended up with BambooHR because they had Onboarding and HRIS built-in for a very affordable price.

Pros

ApplicantStack tracks your hiring candidates in one location.

Cons

ApplicantStack doesn't parse Indeed data well into the ApplicantStack fields. When using ApplicantStack through a PEO, hiring managers do not have the ability to correct the data in the applicant's fields. The software runs on web servers that seem very slow to respond. And the web interface is not intuitive to use. Also, our PEO "archives" all the candidate data every month, so I freeked out every month when I couldn't find my candidate data. Luckily, it was still there, it was just "buried" under extra menu clicks.

Vendor response

Hi Toby! Thank you for taking the time to write a review about ApplicantStack. Please contact support so we can get more information from you about the issue you are experiencing. We can also perhaps give your hiring managers access to edit the information.
