Pros

Overall, it is effective applicant software with amazing customer service. Its great for the price and does what we need it to.
I had a good experience with ApplicantStack. I don't know if it is just a better job market right now or it was the product, but I received better candidates for my open positions.
What I love the most is that I get an email when I need to review something. I don't ever have to guess if I have something outstanding, it lets me know when I need to take action.

Pros

The overall experience with Homebase has been very positive and it has great features even in the free version. We have saved time and money with Homebase.
The simplicity in this app is FANTASTIC. Everything is right where I need it, and it's comfortable to use.
I loved the scheduling features, the app integration was fantastic-- the group messaging feature was also great, because it allowed for different teams to work collaboratively.

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.
Although the duplicates will show up AFTER being loaded, this still means that we wasted a view on the job board we used to search AND wasted time to upload that person.
Overall the product is intuitive and easy to correct if something happens to go wrong. There are very few ways to make an error that is not recoverable.

Cons

The whole point of this software is scheduling and it is absolutely terrible at it. It puts employees who aren't trained for the positions into those spots constantly.
It lets us talk to them just fine but its always about how they were scheduled wrong and have to constantly fix problems.
Which if I wanted to chat, I would have called or got on the auto-chat that pops up every time I log-in. It was annoying enough that I closed our account after a few days.
