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.

Overall, ApplicantStack is a great tool for any organization or industry interested in tracking applicant data electronically.

Pros

Custom reports 3. Canned reports 4.

Cons

No application style modifications 3. Exporting functions: If you don't know SQL, it will be hard to extract the data.

Overall, I've had a very positive experience with ApplicantStack

2018-05-31

Biggest benefit on ApplicantStack is the ability to put up most of our required paperwork (background consent, drug consent, work availability) up and access it at any time.

Pros

Our company has put up most of our paperwork on the online application through ApplicantStack and it has saved us time and gives us a central location in case of lost paperwork.

Cons

For instance, I'd like for there to be employee availability pulled onto a spreadsheet.

Could probably have more comments after we have had a little longer time to utilize all it's capabilities.

Pros

1) Ability to search for applicants and check status in system so much more convenient and time effective. 2) Cost efficient and user friendly. 3) Like having the ability to separately review candidates for each specific job instead of having to sort them manually. 4) Automatically maintains Applicant Log versus us having to manually enter.

Cons

1) Reporting feature - haven't had a lot of time to focus on the reporting, but at first glance may not have everything we need.

Once you configure the system it is wonderful.

2018-05-25

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.

We sent a few change requests to their customer service team, and they actually listened!

Pros

Still absolutely amazing for the price - it's based on recruiter/HR/admin users, as opposed to employees or # of applicants like with Taleo or iCims.

Easy to move and track new applicants and easy to submit request for background checks.

Pros

I like the Home screen Pipline bar and I love the fact that we can submit request for background checks directly from AS.

Cons

I have had trouble getting help and questions answered. Even when going to the resource library, I often times cannot find answers to the questions I have. Twice I have submitted help tickets and received no response at all.
