    Pros
    It is user friendly and looks nice. Having integration with Indeed with dramatically improve my user experience.
    My favorite things about HiringThing are the ease with which I was able to organize applicants, the huge amount of time it saved me, and the quality of applicants I was able to recruit.
    HiringThing is perfect for our company with the ease of use, flexibility in software, and awesome tech support.
    Cons
    Actions which would have taken 30 minutes or more are now completed in minutes. No more juggling spreadsheets, figuring out who has spoken to whom, or cutting and pasting from emails.
    Lack of really any in depth features, search, workflow customization. But I'm not looking for that at this time anyways.
    No way to block duplicate applicants based on email addresses. No way to track offer letter sent until it is signed and accepted.

    Strong features, engaging interface, great customer service, improved results

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    I both recruit and use this ATS across multiple high tech clients. No other ATS had this feature. HiringThing provides easy of use for hiring managers, affordability and a solid platform of features for savvy recruiters. With more use is more enjoyment, I especially appreciate the larger resume view area. Other ATS are clunky in comparison. My first time ATS user clients/managers find it easy to use...

    Cons

    These are small and most could be solved if I ask questions or check their extensive Help Area- 1. preview outgoing messages. 2. Adding a ready to use and change employment application would help clients who have a solid payroll system but don't have or use an HRIS system. Woofoo does not seem to be sufficient.

    I want to be one of your Account Executives

    Reviewed a year ago

    This is a phenomenally easy to use ATS! I love it and it's such a welcome change after coming from the user end of large commercial, robotic and impersonal recruiting software that large companies use.

    Pros

    In the last six years I've used Kinexa Brass Ring and Taleo extensively for three large corporations. I've learned more than five different Taleo platforms and two different Brass Ring platforms. This is my first experience with HiringThing and I think it's very user friendly and straightforward. I'd really like to speak to someone about becoming a representative for your product in Alaska or anywhere virtually. Please call me. Thank you, Gary L. Richardson [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]

    Cons

    The functionality may exist and perhaps I just can't find it yet, but it would be nice to be able to mass email prior applicants who meet the required or desired criteria from HiringThing.

    Better than using nothing

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    We have used this program, which is an improvement over nothing but have found some serious issues with using it. It will send emails out to subscribers about new jobs that haven't been published. Every one of your subscribers will know about a job if Tuesday rolls around and you are still working on the draft with managers. It really makes things messy when it happens to be a job that somebody is going to be terminated from but hasn't actually been informed yet. It also does not keep a record of the offer letter you send out. You will get it listed in the files ONLY if the applicant accepts and signs the letter. The letter is off in limbo if they don't sign it.

    Pros

    It's better than using nothing at all.

    Cons

    It has an all or nothing mentality when it comes to features. No way to block duplicate applicants based on email addresses. No way to track offer letter sent until it is signed and accepted. Will publish job postings automatically, even though the ad was not actually published by the user. Applicants skip qualifying questions when they apply through indeed.

    Vendor response

    We greatly appreciate your feedback and apologize for any issues that you have experienced. In order to remove jobs from the subscriber notification emails, there is a "Hide Listing" option under the Advanced Options on the job listing, that will do this for you. Someone from our Customer Success team will be reaching out very soon to address this and any other questions or concerns you may have. We value you as a customer and strive to do whatever it takes to make hiring better and easier for you.

    Ease of learning, use and amazing customer service!

    Our consulting company HR Annie Consulting began using HiringThing for one of our clients a few years ago. Ever since, even though we get exposed to other programs, Hiring Thing is our #1 recommendation. Even clients who we no longer consult, remain loyal users of this platform for recruiting, applicant tracking and retention of their candidate files. Another thing I love about Hiring Thing is that...

    Pros

    There are a lot of tools and they are easy to use. Whenever I've had a question about anything, their team has been really helpful.

    Cons

    The price and options keep changing so it's hard when we are a pass through agreement with our clients and suddenly have to charge them more...even worse, when we don't catch it and aren't passing the cost through. Maybe a different rate package for companies that are referring use for tithed clients or a referral bonus??

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your review Cindy. I'll have someone from our team reach out because we do have a referral program that might be of interest. Also we apologize for any frustration that our pricing optimizations have caused you. We're constantly working to make sure that our plans and features meet the evolving needs of our customers. We think that joining the referral program will help eliminate any pricing issues you experience with your clients.
