Best ATS ever

It's much easier to manage candidates and to see how many of them are in each recruitment process.

Pros
The easy way to manage candidates pipeline, friendly onboarding and customer care.

Cons
Probably pricing but I guess it reflects the value.

There are much better products out there for less money

Review Source: Software Advice

You can find cheaper or free options that do a much better job!

Pros
Honestly there isnt too much to like in comparison with other ATS softwares. It does have a scheduling option that works when just scheduling an interview for one person. There are some metrics but not anything impressive. Does help with streamlining as everything i set once and no customizing.

Cons
Customer service and onboarding is a joke. Basically just scripted answers to get you out of their hair. No personalization at all. Limited capabilities. The product does not integrate properly with Google(email and calendar). There is no dashboard. No metrics on scheduling. No customization to scheduling interviews or the message interviewers and interviewees. Does not integrate with other services well. Everyone at our company complains of how difficult it makes the process.

We needed a new applicant tracking system and Lever fit the bill!

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Everything from sales to implementation was a very smooth and fast process. Lever itself is extremely intuitive so even without all the amazing customer support, it's really easy to use. It's also very easy to integrate with tools we are already using so it wasn't a huge lift for the rest of the team to get on board.

Cons
Overall it's great! I wish it was a little cheaper and that we could afford the full pro version. I also wish there were more integrations to older HRIS software. Currently they integrate with the newer companies which leaves a whole host of systems like Paylocity out.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Lever had everything that we needed in an ATS. Lever's ease of use, depth of features & integrations, and stellar sales and customer support were apparent from the very beginning, making them a very easy decision to switch to. Another concern of ours was dealing with the hassle of switching ATS's, but our implementation manager made this extremely simple and straightforward. We were up and running with all of our old data seamlessly migrated within a matter of weeks. Any questions/concerns that we had during the buying or implementation process, we would have answered very quickly. You can tell that they really put their focus into customer needs, which is how all businesses should run.

Cons
As far as pricing of other ATSs goes, Lever is on the more expensive, but you definitely get what you are paying for with their premium product. Although we are spending more than we were with our old ATS, the value is beyond noticeable.

The Recruitment Tool You Really Need

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2017-08-23
Review Source: Software Advice

Overall, I think Lever's by far the best product on the market for those who are focusing on sourcing for good candidates for jobs. This tool is the most efficient one I've seen: I single-handedly ran 200 senior candidates through the tool via sourcing in my first month at work, from sourced to 2X hires. Saying that, the sales process could be better and they're a bit unnecessary when it comes to additional features. All in all, grit your teeth and just do it. It'll turn Recruitment into an organised, and very professional flow in a matter of days.

Pros
- Time Efficient: LinkedIn extension, and the flow of the work means 1 person can manage 100s of candidates: and survive. - The Sourcing Dream: if you're sourcing candidates it's your best friend: it takes me 30 seconds to onboard a new lead - Customisable interview sheets: it's so easy to give feedback on a candidate once you get going. -,Wonderful Onboarding Support: once you've made the decision your onboarding support is impressive, professional, and great.

Cons
- Price: it's not cheap, but the price does vary according to company size. It's worth it if you've hired anyone dedicated to recruitment. - Integrations: things like a Slack integration are unnecessarily pricey features. The same comes for the amount of integrations (not that many) as well as the price tag to do each one (something as necessary as a DocuSign integration costs serious cash). That limits you, and feels annoying. - Sales process: it's not the best sales experience. They aren't flexible on things like multi-year deals, or any way to help you line up the Product with your current budget. That makes no sense.

It is very easy to use and maintain as a user and as an administrator. Low cost product but then you get what you pay for.

There is no test environment and when Lever pushes out changes it seems to break other things. The level of customer service support is sub-optimal.

Pros
We wanted something that could be implemented quickly and easily, it was also important that the price made sense for the value. We've found that the system is intuitive and allows us to keep track of candidates in an organized way. Lever has provided all of this. The UI is intuitive. The learning period for comfortably navigating the system and time to value was minimal. This has been a great tool for our team and even better for our hiring managers who are loving the new system.

Cons
Some of the UI decisions are odd. It took me a long time to figure out how to set up default feedback forms, for example.

Pros
As a startup, we wanted something that could be implemented quickly and easily, it was also important that the price made sense for the value. We got all that, and more, with Lever. Lever is intuitive and allows us to keep track of candidates in an organized manner. Definitely a big plus for an organization that doesn't have full time recruiters and internal staff dedicated to hiring.

Our hiring is much more streamlined; feedback and candidate resumes are centralized.

Pros
Lever is phenomenal! As an experienced Recruiter, I've used Lever, Greenhouse, and JazzHR, and Lever is by far my favorite! Lever can be implemented quickly and easily, and is a great price for the value. It's a very intuitive system and easy to use, thus ensuring 100% adoptability amongst employees and interviewers. The scheduling within Lever is easy, Feedback forms are straight forward, and the UI is sleek!

Cons
Like all other ATSs on the market, in order to get reporting to give any useful information, all jobs have to have the same stages.

Great Alternative to Google Hire

Used occasionally for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-08-15
Review Source: Capterra

Since Google Hire was going away, Lever stepped up to challenge of meeting our hiring needs. We've been pleased with the customer service and support after working with them recently.

Pros
We've been so pleased with the support team at Lever. As we switch/transition from Google Hire, they've been incredibly helpful to make sure this is a seamless and stress-free process. It can be nerve wracking when switching products, especially when you want to make sure that candidates don't fall through the cracks or worrying over potentially losing important historical data. The Lever team has held our hand through the entire process and it has been a very pleasant transition.

Cons
The price point is average, perhaps a little higher for a hiring platform. They do have quite a bit of integrations available, so I understand that the cost covers quite a bit of work that went into this tool but it can be difficult when you want to cherry pick and maybe don't need all the bells and whistles.

Pros
The amount of information that it pulls into one convenient tab is very helpful to get a snapshot of the candidates you are reviewing for open positions. I really like that it has both the resume as submitted and a simplified version without formatting so you can focus on the key elements that are important for your interview. I also like the review section that gathers feedback from the various people who interview the candidate.

Cons
For the price point I think this product as about as competitive as other similarly priced options and needs more to make it stand out. Everything works fine but it navigating the various screens and tabs can get overwhelming when you're looking for specific info. I don't find the search function particularly useful except to search for specific candidates by name.

Pros
- Fantastic team that effectively sets you up for success - Simple, clean UI, not clunky - Features are regularly updated - Ability to tailor application stages - Ability to sync with Gmail and Slack is fantastic

Cons
- Greater ability to tweak and tailor the access/editing ability of Line Managers - Line Managers may require a different dashboard set up, they seem to be easily confused by what they see - Creating email templates can be a little finicky, it would be good if the email could take structures like tables - Price may be a little expensive for small companies, however, I feel it is a good investment

ATS that cares about people.

Pros
Switched from a no-reporting ATS to Lever and it has been such a wonderful experience so far. The whole tool is built with candidates and candidate experience in mind. I honestly cannot imagine going back to how we used to work. Working with candidate profiles is intuitive and fast - especially with the newest feature CV Review. The Chrome extension makes sourcing on Linkedin a breezy. Our account manager during closing the deal was absolutely lovely - she was a great support in pitching the proposal to the business and getting us the best price we could afford. Thanks, Lo!

Cons
I'm gonna have to say customer support. Issues are rarely resolved on the first try - they also work US hours only which makes it really hard to fix critical issues on day 1. Lately there have been more issues with the platform than before. Though Lever sent an email about it, why it happened and how they will ensure it doesn't repeat in the future.

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, I have always enjoyed using Lever and have appreciated the feature and integrations updates they have continued to make over the years which has definitely improved the ease of use.

Pros
I have been a champion for Lever since I began using it over 4 years ago. It's an ideal ATS for small recruiting teams and has helped streamline the recruiting process while being the source of record for candidates. The platform has great integrations with sourcing tools, hiring platforms, and new-hire tools like background checks and HRIS systems. Overall, I have really enjoyed my time using this platform.

Cons
The cost can be pretty high for the basic software so I'm some smaller companies or startups would not be able to afford this technology. I've always struggled with the reporting section. I find it highly confusing and I don't always feel the data is 100% correct. This can be hard as reporting on data in Recruiting is very important, and you want that data to be correct if sharing it with the leadership team or hiring managers.

We are a smaller company with just a couple of people doing recruiting. We wanted something that could be implemented quickly and with ease, was financially valuable and not over-priced, was easy to use, and would allow us to keep track of candidates that prefer to work on contract - so knowing when a candidate's existing contract was up was important. Lever provides all of this.
