Verified Reviewer

They have such wonderful customer service!

2015-03-27

In the past I have used CATS, TargetRecruit, and several others, and I have never found better customer service and a more friendly product than HiringThing.

Pros

-Awesome free trial with no credit card -Rating feature with stars -Simple to use, but robust enough to have all features -Beautifully designed interface -The best customer service I've ever seen -Super, highly customizable -Open API

Cons

-Right now there's no activity feed besides the sent messages, but they are developing it for me within 2-3 weeks and then will roll it out to all users!

Easy to Use

2017-01-12

You don't need the full package if you are under 100 employees. A Smaller package does everything you need.

Pros

Easy to keep notes on applicants and the email reminders and notifications feature is great.

Cons

Is not able to run with payroll system.

If you need a tracking system and an applicant information system for future open positions, this is a great product for a reasonable price. The customer service I've received the last 6 months has been immediate with no delay in responding or providing guidance.

Customer support is top notch!

2018-04-24

Pros

The two main pros of this software are the ability to have as many users as you need and their customer service. Having customer support back you up is a main selling point for us.

Cons

Everything we do is data driven so the more reports we can use and customize the better.

Overall a good low cost Applicant Tracking Software

2018-07-17

Pros

* Very reasonable pricing options in comparison to comparable softwares * Customizable options to meet your business needs * Easy to setup job postings and to get them posted, also able to save profiles and recreate the posting as needed

Cons

* Hard to track a candidate who has applied multiple times to different positions and the notes that are taken for the profile on one position is not readily available when candidate is screened by another recruiter for a different position; * Widget does not allow any form of sorting on your home webpage screen.

Could be a great fit for some companies, but wasn't the right software for us.

2018-07-11

Multi users for a flatrate.

Pros

I like that HiringThing allows me to add a bunch of users without the the additional cost. The UI is clean and most functionality is pretty straight forward.

Cons

I think the biggest drawback of the system is that an applicant doesn't have a profile in which multiple applications can live, and where they can view the status of his/her applications.

(Facilities Services company, 51-200 employees)

Overall positive, but still working through hiccups

2018-07-10

This is helpful in the moment but also for having completed profiles to look back on when we're recruiting for new assignments that an older candidate may be suitable for.

Pros

The user interface is clean, intuitive, and the functionality is headed in the right direction.

Cons

If you're willing to make them aware of the issue and walk them through it, they seem to be willing to work through it on their end- it might just take a bit of time.

Interviewing software consolidated and amplified!

2018-07-19

Overall, a great product. I highly recommend it.

Pros

It's a one-stop shop. many features such as Online job postings, Referral program, Background check, Pre-employment testing, Video interviewing, Enhanced search, Social media integration, Form builder, Messaging, Resume import, Offer letter, Applicant tagging, Calendar and scheduling, Onboarding document, Job requisition workflow, Analytic tools, Activity Feed

Cons

3 separate packages which are reasonably priced however most people who hire go with the "pro package" which is the priciest. The other two less expensive packages only offer 5 and 10 job postings which most hiring managers will not use since there are almost always more than 10 jobs to post

Great customer service! This is one thing that always moves me to rate a service or product high.

Pros

If you have never used recruiting software before, Hiring Thing offers a product that is simple and easy to follow.

Cons

I also wasn't able to purchase a higher tier of the software, so I didn't have access to other features.

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

2018-07-11

Pros

I both recruit and use this ATS across multiple high tech clients.

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.

When they make an upgrade or add on a new service, I can usually pick it up, but If I do need help they have a lot of tools AND their Customer Service team is very responsive.

Pros

HT makes the hiring process simple, intuitive, and effective, which results in happy new employees and hiring managers.

Also it can be hard to track a candidate who has applied multiple times to different positions.

Thank you for your review Amanda. I also wanted to let you know that all Craigslist posts are posted within 24 hours. The delay that you are experiences is related to our posting confirmation emails which at this time are manual. We are working on automating these confirmations. Please be assured that all posting are live within 24 hours.

I'm able to focus on other aspects of building the foundation for our HR department, culture, and employee relations because of how much time this system saves me from an administrative standpoint, onboarding, hiring, etc.

Pros

It has streamlined my recruiting process, and allows me to have everything I need at my fingertips.

Cons

Honestly, nothing, but it would be nice to have a text messaging option for communication.
