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

Greatest benefit has been our ability to completely organize our business on this system as the 'go to' resource every day. And the technical service access and training are outstanding.
I love how PCRecruiter can be personalized according to the company needs and wants. The ease of creating it and putting as many functions or options in the software is amazing.
Customer service is extremely friendly and helpful. Also, the company actually does take into account user feedback and implements a lot of great ideas from the forums, which is nice to see.

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

This causes problems because we then have a bunch of incomplete registrations.
We started out using a quarter of the functionality. Then I turned my technology guy loose.
Follow-up activities are very hard to find and awkward to manipulate from their "Activities" tab. You cannot easily find previous placements when viewing a candidate profile.
