Our recruiting firm reviewed 4 software systems and this was our 2nd favorite.

Pros

Backend (payroll) functions--a great timesaver! Customizable dashboards, reports & web links.

Cons

High $$ start-up fee; we would have to scan all our current documents (that we don't have electronically) to import into system.

Julian - get in touch with us regarding the job board items, as we may be able to accomodate more customization. Homepage-located search is on our internal wishlist as well, although coming up with a method that will work on various platforms (SquareSpace, WordPress, etc.) is a complicated thing. Glad you you're otherwise satisfied!

PCR over the years

2019-08-29

Over the last 10 years (since the initial release of the Portal) the product has been much easier to get new people using.

Pros

The combination of the Outlook Portal, Capture and Version 9 also make it easy for new people to get started using it Profiles are a great way to capture the data you need and to have the candidate or client do it in their own words for you.

Cons

The ability to customize screen layouts makes training multiple locations a challenge.

An Essential Workforce/Recruiting Software Tool

2016-11-28

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 tools but also an electronic file management system to track data on the job seekers and their activity.

Pros

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.

A good solution if you need recruiting software

2019-05-30

We like having a relationship with a company that specializes in recruiting software.

Pros

We can do mostly anything we need to do in the course of recruiting. It is easy to add new names to the database, to run reports, and to email candidates to make them aware of new search assignments.

Cons

The reports aren't great, and you cannot create a cover page outlining what is contained within the report.

Aviation Personnel Recruiter (7yrs) review

2020-06-11

PCR allows remote recruiting to be seamless when working properly.

Pros

PRO Features: - Roll-ups for recruiting future candidates is a great feature and easy to use. - Ability to create forms (attachments) that are automatically emailed to select group (accounting, compliance etc) - user friendly - customizable

Cons

We often rely on SMS activities to be recorded as "proof of contact" and it seems every other week Ring Central texts stop syncing or recording as activities.

Make it work for your business model

2019-12-06

I love all the integrations with other software, all leading to metric tracking.

Pros

I really like how customizable it is, making it unique to your business.

Cons

There is a learning curve with how much stuff can be done with this database. It seems like every day there is something new to learn, it can get overwhelming all the features.

Highly Customizable and Robust ATS

2016-01-15

Pros

Users are able to access the database wherever there's an internet connection (including on mobile devices) and the user interface is fairly simple to learn, even if you're not a "techie."

Cons

This system has a background in 3rd party staffing agencies so there are many features that a corporate (internal) recruiter wouldn't need to use and that can sometimes be confusing.

Honestly, this product is stable and consistent, just not real flashy. I think for the right firm PCR can be the right solution but we felt our needs outgrew the product's capability.

2018-06-26

Again, for the right firm, this product is just fine.

Pros

PC Recruiter is very easy to use.

Cons

As easy as the product was to use, we found that PC Recruiter didn't integrate with our HRIS, ADP which became a show-stopper for us.

Powerful Recruiting Software, responsive developers

2019-05-29

I used PCRecruiter as an employee and then when I started my own company I chose them based on my experience and happiness with the database. I didn't even shop other options as I knew what this could do and wouldn't have any learning curve.

Pros

already had good powerful recruiting tools before they started actively asking for suggestions.

Cons

It's got a LOT of bells and whistles I don't need, but it makes it useful for bigger recruiting organizations with more complex needs than I have as a small recruiting firm.

PC Recruiter is used for everything in our office from inputting candidate and client names, to managing activities, resumes and job interviews.

Thanks for the review, Lisa! As you noted, putting more info into a record is a great way to improve searchability. You can also leverage Rollup Lists to group records for later sub-searching. Check with our trainers for best practices or ideas to help your team in particular.

Great for a small company

2019-08-15

It has developed into a robust, yet simple-enough design that allows users to record and retrieve candidate information quickly, and can be built out to serve as an entire recruiting process in itself.

Pros

Easy to use and intuitive - you don't need months of training to be productive.

Cons

Some of the reporting functions can be harder to understand and use, but there are videos you can watch to get spun up.
