Great Onboarding Software

2018-10-12

Saves time to have onboarding process in 1 centralized location.

Pros

Customizable portal for HIRES Easy to use for HIRES Easy to access on mobile app

Cons

Interface look and feel is a little dated No way to post internal comments on HIRES Some things that should be simple require redundant steps Glitches with some features that take awhile for Support to resolve Needs better reporting functionality I feel that the company puts more effort (development/rollout of features) on their Recruiting (ATS) than Onboarding

Hi!

Thank you for writing a review about ApplicantStack.

I will forward your feedback to our development team.

You do have the ability to add notes to the hire record which is viewable to any user with access.

We did just enhance our reporting functionality so I am not sure if you were able to create a new report since the update.

Please contact support so we can get more information from you about the issue you are experiencing.

The Perfect Solution for Seasonal Hiring!!!

2010-03-04

Overall, I would recommend Applicant Stack to any small business that is seeking a more organized method of recruiting and hiring new employees.

Pros

We have been looking for a program that would help us better organize the hiring of our seasonal employees, but all others were way too expensive. Applicant Stack provides an extremely organized and user-friendly program for an even more extremely affordable price!

Cons

We would like to be able to use Applicant Stack to "onboard" our employees as well.

Hi Christine!
Thank you for writing a review.

Your particular account is setup according to your main company guidelines. Unfortunately, they decide the template of the account and limit access for modifications.
But contact support since the report you are requesting might be available.

This applicant tracking system is excellent and very user friendly.

Pros

The software incorporates a plethora of features which make it easy to find anything needed to successful transition applicants through the process.

Cons

Importing documents into the onboarding side for applicants to fill out can take time and effort and yet being able to self-serve in creating these has been very cost effective and helpful.

Ease of reviewing and recruiting quality employees.

Pros

I can easily send applicants to managers for review and communicating with the applicants is simplified by creating templates.

Cons

The configuration process. There are so many different things that must be configured and then they all depend on each. One misstep throws the entire system out of whack.
