We use PLUM for a stepping stone in our hiring process and it is a very helpful tool!

2018-04-27

It is a huge time saver for that feature alone.

Pros

- Behavioral Analysis is great to filter candidates - Building an ideal candidate profile - Easy to sort through and determine which candidates are a good fit - Simple to use for the potential candidate

Cons

- Account management is simple, but seems lacking on a few features - It would be nice to have another section or custom sections for different stages of the interview process rather than just "shortlisted" and "hired"...

Response from Plum


Hi Devon - thanks for this feedback, and for making Plum part of your hiring success!

We've listened and added 3 new stages to our next release - Applied, Shortlisted, Interview, In Progress, Disregard, and Hired are all around the corner. For many of our customers who use an ATS we conform to - and integrate with the stages used here, to ensure a streamlined process across platforms and team members.

To see the best value with Plum we encourage you to have any and all applicants take the assessment - whether or not you have an open requisite or job criteria. This will highlight rockstars in your talent pool, and give you a sourcing headstart when a new job is posted.

Plum is integral to our HR process. We do not even entertain meeting unless they have done a Plum.

Gives us another perspective on how a candidate will fit into each role, and our culture.

2018-01-03

Another tool to assess culture fit within our organization.

Pros

Gives the candidate a small report for completing.

Cons

Detailed reporting available for each position would also add value.

The experience so far has been good!

2017-12-07

Pros

It's like an applicant tracking system and way easier to sort through all the applicants than email.

Cons

Having the resumes in a format where you could more easily drag them into a folder or calendar invite for interviews.

We've made several great hires using Plum - highly recommended

2018-04-27

Rapid, cost-effective, successful hires

Pros

- Rapid reduction of applicant volume based on intelligent data points curated with contextual awareness to our organization's culture and roles - Speed to hire has decreased dramatically, alongside the investment of resources required per hire

Cons

- Certain advanced features are on the product road map but currently require manual assistance from Plum's (stellar) customer support team

There is nothing out there like Plum when you are looking to hire candidates that are the right fit!

2017-07-06

This software helps me screen candidates and saves a huge amount of time when trying to decide the right fit culturally and professionally.

Pros

The next level of info it gives me on potential hires & the accuracy of the results. Plum results are integral to our hiring process. The customer support and training is awesome and I love that it's a Canadian company.

Cons

This is not a con, but a "want": Looking forward to results that suggest what a good occupation would be for the candidate

Excellent system for identifying candidates.

2018-04-28

Helped us define the right criteria and speed up our hiring process.

Pros

This software helped our hiring managers align on the right competencies for candidates. Identifying the needs of the role was a valuable exercise and the system helped us identify the right candidates.

Cons

Would be great if there was an easy way to see a description of all the match criteria.
