 Best ATS I've Seen

I did a thorough analysis before choosing Greenhouse over competitors like Jobvite, Workable, Cornerstone, and Taleo (which was our legacy system). It seemed like a daunting task to migrate all our data and learn a new ATS, but I am so glad we did it and in retrospect it actually wasn't very ...

 They've thought of everything... and if they haven't, they'll try to build it

- As with every system, there are constraints on capabilities (but also, see above note on updates) - Can be a little overwhelming/ confusing for managers that want a lot of access, but that might not be open to a full training session - Very important to set up jobs correctly before recruiting....

Greenhouse Pricing

Pricing model: Subscription

We believe that recruiting should be a company wide effort so that you can tap into your employees' networks. As such, the price is subject to the number of employees at the time that you signup. There are no hidden fees, and the data generated is 100% yours. If your company doubles in size, you still pay the same price for the length of your contract - we don't charge per seat.

GetApp Analysis

Data is the latest player in the growing and evolving recruiting industry. Using the latest in cloud-based technology, recruiters are finding better candidates and conducting more focused interviews. Greenhouse is a recruiting optimization platform that offers end-to-end application tracking tools for companies of all shapes and sizes.

Greenhouse enables recruiters to handle everything from establishing job requirements to selecting top candidates and tracking interview responses. The information that organizations collect through Greenhouse is filtered and used to make smarter, data-driven hiring decisions. Key features include structured interview plans, scorecards and interview kits, reporting and analytics, pipeline management, and source attribution. Greenhouse is most frequently used by creative agencies, healthcare, education and finance companies. It is also used by small to mid-size global companies.

What is Greenhouse?

Greenhouse was developed to meet the needs of growing companies. The web-based recruiting platform aims to remove the barriers to scaling and turn recruiting into a company’s competitive advantage. Companies can manage the hiring pipeline from beginning to end using Greenhouse’s Application Review tool, and they can schedule interview follow ups, configure alerts, and coordinate hiring teams through a centralized system.

In addition to key features, such as structured interview plans, scorecards and interview kits, reporting and analytics, pipeline management, and source attribution, Greenhouse helps companies improve their recruitment performance, rather than focusing on administrative tasks. Greenhouse supports and partners with third-party applications to create a better platform for companies to identify, integrate, purchase, and use disparate recruitment solutions as a cohesive system.

Main Features

Structured Interview Plans

Effective interviews are direct, concise, and filled with substance. Greenhouse offers tools to ensure that interviews rarely get off track, and that employees who’ve been asked to interview potential hires don’t spend time focusing on the wrong topics.

Using Greenhouse, you can create structured interview plans that are repeatable, consistent, and focused on the topics most important to your organization. You can keep a record of which questions your interviewers should ask, and which order those questions should be asked in. This helps you more accurately compare candidates head-to-head.


One way that companies can quantify candidates is by asking interviewers to provide structured feedback after each interview. Greenhouse facilitates this by providing companies with integrated candidate scorecards.

Scorecards are broken up into a few main sections, allowing your interviewers to record things like their overall impressions of candidates, pros and cons, and strengths or weaknesses. A simple grading system instructs your interviewers to rate candidates on skills, traits, and qualifications. You can also add custom questions to your scorecards, and ask interviewers to provide their overall recommendations.

Reporting and Analytics

The data that interviewers provide on candidate scorecards is funneled by Greenhouse into a series of comprehensive reports. These reports help hiring managers make data-driven hiring decisions.

Looking at Greenhouse’s reports, you can better understand your candidates and measure innate qualities that would typically be hard to quantify. Pipeline reports enable you to see how your interview pipeline has changed over time. You can also track where top candidates are coming from, which is useful when researching which agencies, job boards, or referrers are providing the best ROI for your company.

Pipeline Management

Stalled hiring processes lead to candidate drop off. This is one of the reasons why pipelines are so important. With pipelines in place, both hiring managers and candidates stay informed of the next steps throughout the hiring process.

Greenhouse’s pipeline management tools send alerts whenever applications have been sitting in the same stage for too long. This ensures that top candidates never fall through the cracks. Greenhouse also sends automatic notifications when new applications are ready to review, and when decisions need to be made.


Greenhouse integrates seamlessly with many of the third-party apps and tools that have been designed to solve specific recruiting problems. This includes apps that help with sourcing, remote/video interviews, job postings, testing and assessments, social media, scheduling, background checks, HRIS, single sign-on, and employer branding.


Greenhouse uses a simple pricing model that’s based on the number of employees at a company. Greenhouse is designed for all employees, since Greenhouse believes recruiting should be a company-wide effort.
