I have used all major Applicant Tracking and Applicant RM systems. Jobvite is the cleanest of what might be termed the "minimalist" systems. It gets the job done without a lot of fuss. Very user-centric and intuitive, ramp-time is fairly short. Some of the bells (Campaigns, email "slams" etc.) have a steep learning curve; this is problematic for me since I am working specialist positions rather than commodity positions.
There are three elements with Jobvite that are just the best: 1. Each landing page is clean and consistent. Any TA Pro knows that every implementation of a system like Jobvite is modified to meet the needs of the client. I've used Jobvite at two companies and while there were the expected differences, the overall look, feel and function was essential the same, module to module. 2. Jobvite has done a great job of integrating the Engage side with the rest of the functionality. One of my personal metrics for ATSs is "can I get from Point A to Point B in four or fewer mouse clicks." Jobvite has done themselves proud in meeting a metric they likely didn't know existed. 3. Jobvite has sufficient points for adding significant information about a candidate as the candidate moves through the selection process. This is important for many reasons and most TA Pros know what they are.
There is one issue that drives me up a wall with Jobvite and it is pervasive throughout the application. Data and information that should be passed to 1. other common applications or 2. stay with the applicant as the applicant is moved within Jobvite to other requisitions (and this is a hyper-common occurrence) JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN. Two examples: 1. Jobvite makes it very easy to send a quick note to a potential candidate from within a requisition. Problem--that note doesn't get passed to the primary email client AND if the candidate tries to reply, the reply does not go directly to the primary email client. Drives me up a wall. 2. In my organization, we have very close control over visa sponsorship. If I reject a candidate for requiring visa sponsorship and note that fact in the NOTE function, that is not married to the candidate's record. Having this functionality would save Talent Attraction team time.

Overall, Jobvite is a great ATS that integrates with all of our HR and Accounting tools. The customer service and response rate is on par.
Jobvite offers several options for customizing the dashboard and workflows, and the customer service is great.
nothing stands out as of yet. It would be nice to have a list of available free API's

Overall my experience is great, I like that Jobvite is easy to use and you can pretty much jump in and start using it and figuring things out without worrying about "messing" anything up. Recruiters and sourcers alike will find that it does not slow down the process and if the company switched to Jobvite they would not be unhappy.
The pros for Jobvite is that is customizable and really easy to use. You don't need very much training and it links to your social platforms so sending automated announcements is easy!
Cons about the software are that it can be slow at times and there is not a texting feature YET.

Jobvite was a step up for my company. We out grew our former ATS about 2 years ago. With that said I do not feel that Jobvite it the right fit for our organization. Once our 2 year contact is up I don't foresee us renewing. My company needs to be able to field hundreds of applicant's through our ATS daily. It became very clear shortly after using Jobvite that this software is not meant for a company like mine. It lacks small features that I need as a Staffing Manager, in order for my tasks to be efficient. We initially offered to pay more money if they needed to customize any software but they do not do that. You have to post your change to a forum where people can vote on it. The ones with the most votes gets applied in the release. This is fine in theory but if no other companies are endorsing the idea you post to the forum it leads me to believe that Jobvite can not handle the type of recruiting we do and does not have many companies like ours. Which should have made clear to us in the initial stages of negotiation.
1. Great Level 1 Customer Service representatives, all you do is call in and someone can help you with a simple question or problem almost immediately. I use this feature often. 2. The site is user friendly, it was easy to teach members of my team how to use it. 3. Publisher tool is awesome! Very easy to post jobs to all social media outlets.
1. Sub par Level 2 Customer Service Reps, when a level 1 person can not answer your question they pass it off to a level 2 Rep. These level 2 Reps that are assigned to your case are hard to get a hold of. They are reluctant to get on the phone with you. I have had 2 separate instances where I had been passed to a level 2 Reps, I was not impressed with their customer service skills. 2. When we went through the integration process we had many meetings with the integration Rep assigned to use but towards the he fizzled out. We were not fully integrated and he passed us off to the customer service line for further questions.

If I were out shopping for an ATS today, I'd still consider Jobvite. That being said, I haven't shopped around in a while and I don't know how it stacks up with Greenhouse, Lever, etc.
I selected Jobvite as our ATS going back to 2015. I selected it back then for a couple reasons: 1) ease of customization without paying hefty professional services fees, and 2) annual contracts. Over time, we bolted on integrations to other apps and service providers, which have proven to be excellent.
At one point, we purchased the Onboard module, paid for it, and hardly ever heard from anyone ever again. Total implementation fail. I removed it from the next contract renewal, went with a solution through our payroll provider.

Often described as a best-of-breed recruiting platform, Jobvite taps into the recruiting power of the social web and helps businesses hire smarter. Jobvite’s employee referral system, candidate relationship management system, applicant tracking system, and onboarding system all work together to accelerate the hiring process. The company also offers an advanced set of services and products to promote the employer brand, known as Jobvite Brand.
Jobvite is a comprehensive recruiting platform that supports all nine components of the complete recruiting process. With one of the largest databases in the industry, featuring data from more than 49 million job seekers, Jobvite is able to fuel insights and inform best practices for its clients. It delivers on social recruiting, native video interviewing, advanced scheduling, and CRM, and it enables organizations to implement end-to-end workflows for their recruiting processes.
Given the recent demand for highly-skilled job candidates, Jobvite pulls out all the stops in helping its clients win over new employees. The platform accelerates the recruiting process and shortens the time it takes organizations to hire qualified applicants. The company’s Jobvite Engage solution gives recruiters a streamlined way to create, interact with, grow, and even analyze their most qualified candidates. Businesses can also screen candidates with video and deliver a superior hiring experience by building highly-customized career websites.
The software’s employee referral system, known as Jobvite Refer, harnesses the power of social media to provide a company’s existing employees with ways to quickly share job openings with friends and family in their social networks. This feature helps businesses reach more passive candidates and it promotes the company’s brand.
Once you publish a new job opening, your employees will be able to send “Jobvites” and automated broadcasts to the people in their social networks on top sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Jobvite gives you tools to measure the progress and spot your top referring employees. Custom applications are also available to help you identify potential candidates within your employee’s friend pools on Facebook.
Jobvite Engage gives organizations a way to cultivate pools of prospects, even when those prospects are not currently looking for jobs. The candidate relationship management (CRM) platform serves as a centralized database for all sourcing activities.
Visit your CRM to search for candidates, keep activity logs, and view hiring pipelines. When a new position opens up, the CRM is the first place you should visit, as you’ll be able to see if there’s anyone in the database with the skills necessary to take over the available position. You can also let prospects add themselves to your talent pool from any webpage with Jobvite’s CommunityBuilder and Join Us App.
The app has gone beyond the typical applicant tracking system to provide its users with Jobvite Hire. The solution manages the entire hiring process with automated social and other innovative features. It integrates Outlook and Google Calendar, with drag-and-drop scheduling, and it leverages a searchable candidate database to cut down on the time it takes hiring managers to find new prospects.
When you use Jobvite’s applicant tracking system, you can prepare and route requisition and offer approvals via email. You can also create workflows and forms that map your hiring processes and sourcing needs. Applicant data can be seamlessly shared between hiring managers. Meanwhile, the LinkedIn profiles for candidates are available on candidate detail pages.
Branded career websites give organizations of all sizes, from startups to large enterprises, a better way to source job candidates. Jobvite’s career site framework gives clients a completely branded experience, with unique logos, designs, and messaging. The goal should be for candidates to transition between a company’s career site and its corporate pages seamlessly, without even noting that the transition has taken place.
Develop your own career website to appear to candidates in your target demographic, whether that’s people in a certain region or people with certain skillsets. In addition to rich multimedia content, you can also include responsive image sliders, video carousels, and custom calls-to-action on your site. Jobvite also supports a branded mobile experience.
Jobvite integrates with a variety of third-party applications. The company’s technology partners include Appcast, ADP, Facebook, HireRight, LinkedIn, Twitter, TalentBin, and Workato, among many others.
The company has also partnered with system integrators and HR consulting organizers to help organizations with services related to implementing the platform in their own environments. Jobvite works with channel partners to help resell, implement, and support its solutions, as well.
The cost of using Jobvite is variable depending on the number of employees within an organization.
