    Pros
    The entire process of going to Brightmove for applicant tracking has been wonderful. The team has been very supportive.

    I have been happy with the search capabilities and the ease of use. The job posting feature is good and I look being able to set up different folders.

    The aspect i enjoy most about the software is the ease of use - very user friendly and easy to navigate.

    Cons
    The Notes tab does not have a time snap- so for a new recruiter knowing to bounce between the two can be confusing and irritating. Notes and activities are essentially the same.

    Jayna S.

    I do not have any problems with this software. Sometimes key words are difficult to use in order to search different resumes.

    SS

    Sydnee S.

    The only real complaint is that sometimes it glitches. Sometimes when I search a candidate it will not come up when I know for a fact they are in the systems.

    With them since their beginning in 2005! Awesome customer service and yearly new product launches!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Very easy to use

    Pros

    BrightMove continues to add new functionality to their software each year and has kept our firm first and forefront by maximizing the social media aspects of our job posts (compatibility with LinkedIn, Indeed, Twitter, FaceBook, Zip Recruiter and more). Their customer service is not only excellent, but readily available when needed, as well as responsive (which is why we selected BrightMove all...

    Cons

    Searching by job experience level is difficult unless candidate has year placed after their degree (the year it was issued). Auto texting to candidates is currently not available and candidate auto ping to email when new jobs are open need to be added (to the best of my knowledge not available yet).

    Very useful tool if populated and maintained properly.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    There are several features that I really appreciate: 1. The ability to source candidates through searching their whole profile, not just their resumes. 2. The ability to connect candidates to opportunities that they have been submitted to and track all communications and submission workflow 3. That applicants have self serve ability to apply to roles, update availability and resume, etc.

    Pros

    It's very user-friendly and you can ask for support and get real-time support without calling. I also LOVE the resume parsing feature and the fact that you can request additional features/functionality.

    Cons

    This is more of a suggestion for improvement but it would be better if the search results field were fully customisable. i.e., if you want to see `Title, Location, Rate' it would be better. Currently, it's fixed with Applicant Name, Current Title, Current Company, Status, Placement, Available Date, Update Date, Update user, Email, Score.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We're glad you enjoy the resume parsing feature.

    Brightmove is great for startups.

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    The vendor has excellent customer service. The product provided is decent for the price you pay. The functionality makes it easy to train new employees on. Searches are easy to maneuver and the customization for this system is very flexible. I would recommend this to a start up company.

    Cons

    I least like the following: Implementation is lacking: While there are tools in place to teach you how to put triggers into place unless you understand technology on what I'd describe as an intermediate level they may not function the way you'd like them to. The owner of our company stated that when they purchased the system for use any customization beyond the standard template software had to...

    Great Tool for Applicant Tracking and Sourcing

    Reviewed 2 months ago
    Pros

    I liked how this system allowed me to see what status each applicant was in and set it accordingly

    Cons

    I did not like how to search for applicants because of the status they were in it made it difficult to find some sometimes

    Great software that's affordable and customizable.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Easy to start, easy to learn to use, and limitless options to customize yourself.

    Pros

    Great value for the monthly cost. Fields are easily customizable along with processes. Integrates with email and has an internal job board posting that is connected to probably 100 social media/external sites. Resume parser is one of the best out there. Easy and even has a Chrome Extension for LinkedIn. Dashboard is easy to navigate and customize.

    Cons

    When you open attached resumes from clients, they aren't in the format they submit them in. More like a text type doc so a lot of the formatting is removed.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying our resume parser feature and find the product easy to use. We strive to provide a great experience for our customers.
