JobAdder as an ATS

2015-11-13

Pros

Integration of several third-party services and candidate sources is probably the biggest time saver for any ATS, in my experience that biggest gripe users have on ATS products is that they often act a bit as a walled garden and so much time is spent on data entry which is a huge waste of time for any organization.

Cons

The email function could be improved like for example having automatic follow up emails and maybe a dashboard showing any replies our unanswered emails to help recruiters keep track of their process and knowing what actions need to be taken on a daily and weekly basis.

It's essential to know what your organization need from an ATS, is it mainly to keep a database or a platform to keep track of your daily tasks and ongoing projects? My experience with JobAdder is that it is used for a little bit of both with a focus on easy to understand usability which works quite well with my current organization's needs.

Superb

2020-10-13

I have used 5 different recruitment software solutions and this is by far the best.

Pros

Intuitive, easy to use and slick interface. Adding companies, adding candidates, logging calls and tasks, assigning to colleagues etc, all so easy

Cons

Reporting could be easier but it's good nonetheless.

Better recruitment management.

Pros

It's so easy to manage all the resumes we have collected from other job boards.

Cons

I think the part where it parses and decodes resumes. The system struggles in this area. I think it needs improvement especially in decoding resumes in PDF format.

Good, but could be better ...

2016-10-13

I really love how feature rich Job Adder is - however it doesn't easily connect or allow you to upload or download the information stored within the product.

Pros

It was easy to set up, feature rich allowing photos of candidates so that you could easily recognize and identify them.

Cons

No easy printable reports - such as open jobs.

Good budget ATS

2021-05-27

Great for a smaller agency/independent recruiter who need a straightforward and inexpensive ATS option.

Pros

It is not convoluted or too busy, making it very easy to pick up even for someone unfamiliar to using an ATS.

Cons

Can't cross reference candidate profiles directly to other client profiles and open orders as easily, and tracking them through the process isn't as usable/readable and it can be hard to tell where a candidate is in an interview process since there aren't really complex status options.

There are plenty of other products out there that compete with this, and some of them have greater features and some of them are cheaper, but in my opinion, it really helps to have an Australian call center when you have something go wrong with your most vital tool. If floating candidates is a big part of your business, you need to ascertain whether the functionality is right for you. Its uptime is very good, and you really don't need to train your staff to use it. It is that easy.

Great system but major flaw with Job Board integration

2019-09-10

As a recruitment company, we need the candidates experience when applying for jobs to be as easy as possible.

Pros

It is very customisable and is great as a CRM as well as a recruitment management system for both Temporary and Permanent placements.

Cons

At this stage (Sept 2019) there is no update from JobAddder as to when they will be able to integrate with the UK Job Boards in the same way as Broadbean etc

2018-11-27

Pros

Lots of reporting options.

Cons

There is no free trial, but they do offer a demo version that's not live. It gives you a decent idea of the usability of the platform but it would be nice to set it up live so you can get a true feel for using it before committing.

JobAdder: Simply the only choice for Recruitment Managment Software

2014-05-15

Pros

The team is consistently looking for ways to innovate their service offering through product augmentation and integration with other key software used by our business. Thirdly, JA's customer service is second to none.

The best recommendation I can make to colleagues looking use Jobadder is to "measure twice, cut once". The success of JA is only restricted only by the way it is set up. Take the time to work with JA to ensure that the system is optimised for your business today as well as in the future. It takes time to plan the layout of your database, but it is a time investment that is certainly worthwhile.

A lot of people talk to me about what they are looking for or what their current systems do for them. In many cases, I hear about a whole lot of bells and whistles that all sound good, but in reality, what value to they really add? For me, JA has all you need to do the job. Time is not spent playing with toys but just getting on with the job. So you need to think about the fundamental needs of your business and how you operate on a daily basis. The more complex your system is, the more your people are sitting in front of a screen and not a human.

Establishing my business around JobAdder

Be clear on how you plan to use your data and what info is important to you if cutting over. Data migration is as good as your own understanding of what you have. Jobadder can handle imports and mapping well, but only if you have your end sorted.

Why I use JobAdder CRM

2016-07-14

Pros

They also did a great job parsing my data into the system, which initially was a concern of mine, however they performed above my expectations.

Cons

(system doesn't check for duplicate records before creating a new one; 'contacts' and 'candidates' are two separate profiles which means double data entry; a tickler reminder system for activity doesn't exist however they do offer an 'upcoming tasks' option; you can't edit date stamps (other systems have two time stamps); if there are multiple users under an account there isn't a streamlined process to electronically share profiles; applet fields can not be changed on your own, you have to go through JobAdder support for that (good thing is there isn't a cost for this)

My biggest complaint is that there are separate profiles for 'client contacts' and 'candidate contacts'. In a services based business many times your clients can also be consultants, and vice versa. With two separate profiles it means there is a high likelihood that your data will be inaccurate unless you remember to update the other profile everything you have an interaction with someone.

Great applicant tracker but workflow could do with improvement

2015-08-11

Pros

Being able to access candidates from anywhere via this cloud based tool is great.

Cons

Whilst this is a slick tool, Jobadder still has a way to go in terms of being a total workflow management tool and it is quite clear that it started life as an applicant tracking tool rather than a recruitment database.

I think this is well suited to firms that utilise SEEK heavily and do not spend a lot of time individually coding candidates. If you value an audit trail of emails and an email client that links to outlook then this is likely not for you.
