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.

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.

One stop solution for application management

2018-10-19

ApplicantStack is an effortless software that helps to track application, sort vacancies with ease, keeps timely track of candidates and their applications with minimal effort and generates timely reports.

Pros

ApplicantStack is one stop solution from updating job profiles to shortlisting them.

Cons

The biggest drawback is that it creates a unique ID while sending a job vacancy to a candidate because of which the vacancy mail might get ignored.

Home Care Review

2019-12-10

We are hiring with just applicantstack by using the post from other job boards. I've been using this for over 3 years now and it is a great thing for us.

Pros

The ease of getting all of our applicants into one place as opposed to having to login to all different job boards.

Cons

I do not like the reports on the software, I feel as though there could be better ways of tracking and reporting through an analytics tool.

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.
