Pros

I know I mentioned this above, but I think two of the greatest features is the ability to upload candidates directly from Linkedin, and the ability to email clients/candidates through PCRecruiter.

All the different downloads - launcher, java, outlook, resume inhale. If I forget to do one on our employees' computer, it can be a headache.

The biggest problem we have faced recently is job-posting integration.

SP

It’s a little clunky and outdated... some functionalities are buried in areas that don’t make sense, which can ruin the flow of working. However, if you know where to look, you can work around it.

Cons

Lack of graph making- which could be user error.

MM

Over my (almost) two years there have only been a few times that we needed support, each time I was disappointed with the availability to get someone on the phone / response time on email.

MS

Michael S.

The interaction with external APIs is extremely limited. Being able to download and upload data with various fields and mapping is restrictive.

Fully featured, supported and powerful recruiting CRM solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our requirements outgrew our Zoho One solution for working with 1000s of volunteers. PCR was the clear winner after an extensive competitive process.

Pros

Amazing customer support from evaluation through implementation and beyond. Their dev team is also top-notch.

Cons

Setting up the system is a lengthy process due to the huge level of complexity and customization possible. Not really a con but rather a lesson learned. Better functionality for bilingual system would be a huge plus!

Thank you so much for the review, Eoghan! We appreciate the opportunity to serve your business.

I like having the option to customize

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've used this program for years and have not had too many issues. The customer service at PCR is top notch

Pros

I like having the option to customize every screen aside from what my peers need. Being able to see the results I wants to see after a search, or customize each name profile is an asset

Cons

The new update has been rough to adjust to, in my opinion the old PCR was much cleaner to look at - but then again I have only had a week to adjust to the new updates.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review, Steve! As with all software interface updates, they always seem hard to adjust to at first. We have some more substantial and workflow-improving updates to come later this year. Post your suggestions for future editions in our requests forum!

Great product with full support!

Reviewed 6 years ago

We are a small staffing company that has been using PCRecruiter for nearly 7 years. They are very responsive to our needs. Whenever we need to make changes or have something fixed, the PCR team has been right on top of things. They even go above and beyond our requests. This is a great product with the support that exceeds what we are used to.

Pros

Amazing support willing to jump right on fixing any issues. Responsive to requests. Website job portal sync's great. Good customization interface. Large selection of search options.

Cons

Difficult to learn and figure everything out.

Never have to worry

Reviewed 3 years ago

One of the most important benefits is consistency. In 5+ years of using PCR, we've never had any downtime. This was such a huge improvement from our old ATS systems that would go down for hours at a time throughout the year. The next biggest benefit is constant improvement. Especially with integrated systems like LinkedIn. I never need to contact PCR to let them know something has changed and their system needs to be updated. They are on top of it and updates usually come within 24 hours.

Pros

PCR is highly configurable so you can set it up to match the way you work. The integration with other systems - especially LinkedIn capture is a great asset. Good support in getting things set-up. You own your data and have easy access to it if there is ever a need for a back-up or to change systems.

Cons

Very minor issue - could have better sales call tracking with visual follow-up lists.

PC Recruiter is the best SaaS based recruiting software for businesses to ace talent acquisition !

Reviewed 7 days ago

My overall experience is really splendid and I strongly suggest all staffing companies and recruitment specialist to go for PCRecruiter as they are backed up with robust tech partners and experts who provide best timely solution to talent acquisition concerns. They are dynamic and agile to any new requirements from businesses and act accordingly. Quick and highly ethical in meeting their promises with businesses.

Pros

The software is robust enough to fulfill the need of recruitment and placement in small and marginal businesses. It helps in selection of right candidates for businesses and brings performance throughout. All top rated staffing companies and third party placement companies are using the services in full fledged manner. The tool is high on staffing and marketing automation and helps in managing all the tracking and recruitment process through online mode without any manual intervention. Also, the user interface is strong enough and helps in better interaction with users. It is quite interactive and that's why more customer attention is there.

Cons

Request to extend the trial version for some more days so that every user can test and assess their need and then confirm their customization requirements . Customization is the need of the hour and the costing should strictly be based on PaaS and SaaS model always.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for the glowing review, Anuj! We're glad to hear that PCRecruiter is meeting your team's needs so fully. We're going to be releasing some amazing new features this year - we look forward to sharing them with you!

This is so much better than our old ATS!

Reviewed a year ago

The biggest problem we have faced recently is job-posting integration. We would like to make it very easy for our recruiters to go about their day. Right now, all they have to do is enter a couple of job details and our IR team handles the rest. PCR pushes out the job to multiple sites and even has the capabilty to pull applicants directly into PCR to be screened from the in-app pipeline.

Pros

Being able to delegate tedious tasks to AI is amazing. I'm an IR, which means I am always doing database work. PCR has made it extremely easy to import data, go through call sheets, and set up plans for our Recruiters. Also, the support team is top-notch and is always listening to their users. Highly recommend PCR to anyone that is using an old, clunky ATS. Also, I can't write a review without mentioning Dark Mode. PCR has a really solid Dark mode that keeps my eyes from burning when staring at my screen for 10 hours.

Cons

I wish that there were more integrations with job-posting. Specifically with LinkedIn Recruiter. It is also very different from ATS's of the past so it might take a while to train your team on how to use it. We have had to dedicate a lot of training time to PCR. Additionally, there are a couple of things that are a bit more complicated than they have to be. The search function is very robust but can be confusing to new users.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review, Scott! We're glad PCR is filling your needs and we look forward to sharing some great new updates with you this year!

An Essential Workforce/Recruiting Software Tool

Reviewed 6 years ago

Our agency has been working with the PCRecruiter software since 2011 when we adapted it to our use for job placement services in the public workforce system. We started our on a totally paper-driven filing system. With our focus of helping prepare job seekers for the interview process and recruiting for employers to fill their job orders, we needed a software tool that could provide the recruiting...

Pros

Flexible and can be customized to fit user needs. Many options. Internet based so can be accessed from anywhere.

Cons

Sometimes customization requires a lot of adjustment to work just depending on what you are trying to do and reporting can be a little confusing until you spend some time on it. We have been using PCR8 still so some of this may have been improved in V9.
