Greenhouse is great. It's very customizable to your recruiting operation while providing clear guidance on how to best organize your operation. This improves your candidate/interviewer experience while maximizing your data/analytics and workflows. Their customer service team is top notch. They're friendly and helpful and always solution oriented. There's so much I personally like that I'll just have to list a few (in no particular order): - Offer Workflows (with approvals) - Job Setup - Customizable Options (Offer details, Job details, Tags, Candidate details) - Greenhouse Analytics (Okay I lied, this is my favorite) - Employee Dashboard - Referral Process (Posting to social media, tracking, organizing referrals as a referrer)

We use Greenhouse as the platform for all recruiting functions globally. Prior to implementing Greenhouse, we had a lot of manual processes in place and the recruiting function as a whole was decentralized. There was no central repository for all recruiting-related information. With Greenhouse, we were able to align the team globally, centralize all functions, automate processes, and create a better hiring experience for managers.Reporting - In my role, I need to be able to diagnose where the breakdowns are in recruiting, and the system’s many canned reports help me do that. While Greenhouse doesn’t have the ability to let you build custom reports, there are enough reports available that I don’t have to do that. It’s also been very useful for me to get weekly recruitment reports from the system so I can see activity from a high level. All this lets me keep my finger on the pulse of hiring, and report effectively to the business where we are with progress to plan, while at the same time advising on trends I’m seeing and actions we may want to take. Interview Kits/Scorecards - Another great feature of the system. Getting everyone on the same sheet of music has been invaluable. Once all scorecards are input then the manager can see all of the feedback and make a decision. As I’ve mentioned, centralization is important to us and having all the feedback in one place makes it easy on recruiter and manager alike. And the interview kits are a great way to set everyone up for success because they can be customized so that the whole interview panel takes the same approach, or each interviewer can be tasked with a specific question set. And it’s all so intuitive and easy to use. Several of our senior executives have set the standard for user engagement with Greenhouse! User experience - This was one very key area for us. We believe that recruiters are partners to managers, and for them to want to engage on that level, we needed a system that was user-friendly. And Greenhouse is definitely user-friendly. We have a high level of engagement here which has helped to further our goal of creating a culture of recruitment here.

I did a fair amount of investigating ATS systems, and Greenhouse ultimately won my business and has kept it for a several reasons. 1. Customer Service. Their sales team understood the difference between availability, persistence and harassment. Their implementation specialists are patient, articulate, empathetic, easily accessible and even open to product improvement suggestions. Support tickets are handled quickly and when the matter is a more complex tool-wide programming solve, they still communicate the outcome to you---even months later!! 2. UI and UX. It's sexy, intuitive, and easy to use. Trying to get timely candidate feedback from super busy creative people, many of whom are naturally disorganized, has meant the simplicity of Greenhouse has been a godsend. They even like using it because its pretty. Anything to made the horse led to water drink, ya know? 3.Customization. I love that I can change make both minor tweaks and major adjustments to scorecards, job posts, work flow and hiring teams with zero headache. We can also put our unique brand voice on everything our internal team and candidates see, so nothing about it feels robotic. 4. Candidate Experience. It's fast, simple, and clear on the receiving end, which is the most important part. Feedback from our candidates, even from rejected candidates, has been glowing since we started using Greenhouse---a vast improvement over our previous MO. 5. Ease of Communications. Communicating to and about candidates is simple and fluid, AND can all activity around a candidate is logged, so you check and double check last communications---key when you have a large pool and fast moving process. It's also web based, so use it from your phone, home computer or anywhere that's not your desk. The only drawback is that the flexibility in the rest of the tool is not represented in the reporting. The reports can be a little difficult to decipher and there are some sets of data not offered that would be quite useful, though not critical. On the whole, the reporting features are more than adequate, but relative to the awesomeness of the tool and service otherwise, it would step up a bit.

No glaring holes in the tools a small-to-medium sized organization needs to track, manage, evaluate, and hire candidates. Lots of push-button integration partners to drive downstream workflows, such as Background Screening, and HRIS export.

- Ease of use & great support documentation you can point individual users to so the recruiting team is not inundated with one-off questions from users. - Access to customer support through the chat feature - Ability to make feature requests - The product is constantly evolving and growing with our needs as a fast growing organization - Many levels of specificity when setting up alerts you want to receive - our previous ATS alert emails were either all or nothing but with Greenhouse you can select exactly what you want such as alerts when candidates move to different stages, or alerts for specific interview rounds which is very helpful.

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.

Bottom line

  • Helps companies improve recruiting performance
  • Centralized hiring processes drive team collaboration
  • Offers a way to make data-driven hiring decisions
  • Removes the barriers to scaling
  • Pricing based on the number of employees
