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.

Recommendations to others considering JobAdder

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.

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.

Easy to Use

2016-07-21

There are areas of improvement such as the reporting capabilities, lack of ease for customisation, at times the response time to product enhancement ideas/requests are too long, however the team do take the time to listen and then consider.

Pros

Easy to use Engaging user interface Fairly priced for what you get Friendly support team and great training manager

Cons

Lack of customisation - or turn around time to achieve this Long leads times for feedback on feature enhancements At times the system can be slow

Establishing my business around JobAdder

2016-03-29

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.

JobAdder would work for most but not us

2018-01-18

That sums it up. We are searching for a new software as we have not been "happy" with the several we have used so far.

Pros

The product works well and there are no issues in it performance. It is great at adding jobs as the name implies.

Cons

Additionally, we need to see all the employees of a company on the screen without doing extra searches.

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.

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 applicant tracker but workflow could do with improvement

2015-08-11

Pros

Jobadder makes the applicant tracking process easy to manage if you use job boards such as Seek (who are a part-owner of Jobadder).

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.

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.

Custom Data Extract by JobAdder

2016-11-03

I engaged JobAdder to do a custom data extract of 127k rows for us. The export came out perfect, exactly what we were looking for.

Pros

Very happy : the service, everyone has been great to deal with, friendly, happy & professional Very happy : the turnaround time of the entire thing, from start to finish in a couple of days is excellent Very happy : the end result, the data is just what we wanted, and the mockup/preview that let us confirm what we wanted worked well

Cons

Could be improved: the delivery method below via FileZilla & winzip is unnecessarily convoluted and many corporate PCs are locked down and do not have the ability to download / install applications, and even if they do, will just have to go back and uninstall them as soon as they're finished. The way you did the mockup via dropbox was far and away a superior delivery mechanism and I would entreat you to investigate shifting to using that for the delivery of the finished product also.

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.

Easy to use and intuitive

2016-09-15

Pros

The set-up time is negligible and the support staff are very easy to deal with.

Cons

This product is very customisable and easy to use, but in saying that, there might be a couple of ways of doing each process and if you're working in a team environment as opposed to a 'Sole charge' recruiter, it might pay to define what the process is going to look like as you can do the same thing a couple of different ways, so you'll need to ensure that you're on the same page especially if you want the reporting (which is another awesome feature) to work well.

While my negative comments are really based on my wish lists of features that I've seen on other products, Jobadder does a really good job of everything at a price point that is easy to swallow. I know I sound like I have a crush on Workable but they have a ton of problems as well not to mention very pricey since they price it per position that you're working on. JobAdder also has enough expansion capabilities that you could easily add more users as you grow. I'm a one man shop right now and it helps me organize my clients, positions, and candidates with ease. There's a ton of reporting capabilities that would have been really beneficial for when I managed 30 recruiters. Bottom line: For agency recruiting it would be hard to find a better product with all these bells and whistles with amazing customer support for the price. It was actually a no brainer for me when I saw the demo.
