Entreflow Consulting Group's use of Recruitee

Review Source: Capterra

It's helped us the most because we do our recruitment on a regular basis. So rather than having all the applications go to your inbox, clogging up your email, and potentially losing really awesome candidates falling through the cracks of all your email mess, it sends all of the applications to one cool app and through the app you're able to manage the applicants based on the pipeline stage that they're in, and the actions need to happen with them.

Pros
The spotlighted feature for this app is really that it's super easy to track your applicants. It makes it really easy to see where everyone's at in their state different stages, you can add comments, you can rate them, you can pass them over to someone else on your team to review, and a lot of other functionality and workflow love in there. Some more of the top features; you can do a job board posting through the app itself. So once you get your job ad in there you can basically have it sent to, at the moment for Canadians at Glass Door and Indeed, hopefully some more Canadian job boards in the future. There's a career site that comes along with it too. So basically it helps you to build out a careers page that's on brand with the rest of your website, so people can go and see your careers page all your jobs posted there really easily and apply for those. There's the candidate pipeline, so being able to see visually where the candidates are in the pipeline so if you're out the need to do a phone screen, or in-person interview, or second interview, what have you. Really easy to see where you're at. Also, we use this app with our clients that we do recruitment for and it makes it really easy for us to collaborate. So, they're able to gain access to see where the applicants that we're recruiting are in the pipeline and be able to comment on some of the applicants we have in there.

Cons
At the moment you can send a calendar invite to a candidate through the app which is pretty cool but it'd be great to be able to send them a link for them to book time based on your calendar. So almost like a Calendly plugin or something like that. This way, if you're having trouble getting in touch with somebody you can just send them a link and then they can book the time based on when they're available. That would speed things up a little bit. We'd love to see a Craigslist integration as well, at the moment you have to go out to Craigslist post the job. From there the resumes and everything will come into Recruitee, but having to go out into Craigslist to post is a little bit of a nuisance.

Response from Recruitee


Hi Aislinn,

Thank you for your review, it's great to see some love from Canada! We are happy that you appreciate the collaborative aspect of Recruitee as this what we are all about.

Following your comment, Craigslist.org is now available for you to post your job on, should you come across other job boards that you would like to have integrated, let us know or post directly on our Roadmap!

Pro tip: our recent Scheduler feature allows candidates to book an appointment themselves based on your availability, check it out on our Help Center or contact us and we will help you out.

Best regards,
Customer Success Team

A Mixed Bag with some really shiny aspects besides some disappointing letdowns

Review Source: Capterra

Recruitee is a Tool which gets the Job done. It makes you scream at times and the UI makes you wonder wether the curses you just heared actually really came out of your own mouth. Then again it provides a hassle free way to set up Job offerings, keeps applicants in a clean status and supports your day to day work with simplifications that save you time (once you learned the UI). My general opinion is, it actually Recruitee still IS worth the price but I somewhat fear for the products future as in my impression Recruitee has been overrun by its own success, growing much too fast and loosing track of the fact, that a feature is only as good as its useability. Hopefully it does not choke on going too fast and finds its way back from a bucket list of features to delivering them enjoyably and in a user oriented way.

Pros
Back weh we started to use Recruitee we had a bunch of Email boxes and excel files. All our Job offerings were hand made and someone had to invest a huge amount of time making connections, answering emails and often only one step ahead of mishaps, confusion and losing potential candidates. This all changed when we introduced Recruitee. All of a sudden we had Trackable job offerings, Pipelines for candidates, a truly reliable control for who had access to what, Email templates and even some basic reporting. It was like a whole new world for us, and a great one. Today soe of the Features remain great. The Pipelines and Process structure for aplliccants works like a charm. Also building job offerings and integrating them into our career portal works really fantastically. Email templates are used a lot still as are the team discussion functionalities for applicants. Also sharing an application for a limited time with key members of the team he is supposed to work in is really easy, reasonably secure and easy to do.

Cons
All the Core Features are there and are okay. In May Areas however the user Interface suffers. PDF files, especially for the CV is a chore to use with magnification functionalities that make me scream. Also lot of the simple and clean user experience from teh early days has been cluttered up by additional features. As someone who designed UI and UX for a living I feel okay to say: Especially the recently added Email functionalities have never been properly user tested. The UI is hard to learn and in this particular area. The support works fast and is verry willing to help but often helpless regarding (our specific) cases. Basically a major UI Overhaul is something I would whish for intensely, especially if it could bring back the simplicity and ease of use from the early days

Overall I am very happy with the use of Recruitee, nice and simple to use and a great customer support team who are always ready to help us out.

Pros
Recruitee is very easy to use and has some interesting features. What I like most about Recruitee is the helpful people in their customer support team. They always respond very quickly and are very supportive when we have questions about their product.

Cons
It would be helpful if there comes an automated way of shifting candidates who want to stay in our database versus candidates who want to be deleted in terms of GDPR. Also I would be interested in more features for retrieving interesting reports based on our recruitment data.

For Americans this isn't the best bet as they are in Europe on pretty much an opposite time zone. Also is not good for recruiting teams, staffing agencies, and the like as they aren't really capable of supporting a mass amount of jobs without some negotiation. I look at service in a 360 perspective. The first 180 was good when we signed up but the other side of the coin was a huge let down - they literally just stopped communicating with us even though they are holding 500+ applicants and all of the data we have on them. It's still there now, with no way to access it or do anything about it without shelling out cash to a third party. Hugely disappointing. It is due to my overall experience that I can not, in good conscience, recommend this product to anyone but my competitors because I know ultimately it won't go the distance for them and will put them at a disadvantage, which in the long run will benefit us. It is what it is.

Pros
This product was very easy to use, also the customer service during our companies onboarding to the product was great. There was no shortage of help. They even worked with us to develop a solution that included more jobs as we maxed out their highest plan almost immediately.

Cons
Ultimately we left Recruitee because we needed something that could handle ATS, hiring, onborarding, and communications with and to existing staff. When we let it be known that we were leaving the tone of everything abruptly changed. No more customer service, our contact no longer communicated with us, and the IT team just sent us a link to their API to retrieve our data encompassing over 500 applicants in varying stages. Upon further investigation the API that they provided left the data in several pieces. In order to retrieve it we were forced with the option of developing custom script on our own or paying a developer a rate, which was the lowest bid we could find due to the time it would take to extrapolate it all. Ultimately with this Recruitee let us down. They boast that all of the data you insert into their system is yours but that's not necessarily true.

Response from Simone


Dear Ken,

We're sorry to hear about your experience. We always aim for the highest standard of customer service and experience. We appreciate your feedback and we would like to take this chance to improve.

First of all, we're happy to hear that you had a positive experience during the onboarding. As you can see on other reviews, our Customer Support is rated highly by all users. To make sure all of our customers experience the same standard of support, we have a dedicated Customer Support team based in the US. They can be reached via different channels such as the live chat, email, and phone. I wish you would have had the chance to meet them, they would have been more than happy to help you during your office hours.

Second, it is correct that we have tailored plans for companies with a bigger number of jobs. The main reason is that bigger companies often need more support for onboarding. To personalize these services, we find it important to discuss in order to offer the best tailored package if you're interested.

Finally I would like to let you know that the data in Recruitee is yours. We never use or sell candidate data or any other information you collect. We offer a standard API export for all users. We hope in the future, we could customize it further so that it can fulfill more complex export requests.

Best regards,
Simone

Available in 47 countries, Recruitee integrates with 800+ free and premium job boards, giving your open job maximum exposure and your company the ability to reach and attract the best possible candidates, regardless of the platform they’re using. The Recruitee Chrome and Firefox plugins allow you to easily source passive candidates from various web sources into the system. A native app for iOS devices is also available.

Recruitee keeps track of the applicant lifecycle from application to phone screening, from job offer to hiring.

Its two-way email synchronization functionality lets you send emails from anywhere - i.e., email app on your mobile phone, desktop email client, or cloud-based email - and Recruitee then syncs your incoming and outgoing candidate emails.

Main Features

Career Site

Recruitee provides the necessary tools to create a career site that speaks to your branding objectives. While most people insist that it’s the lasting impression that carries more weight, you also would like potential candidates to have a favorable first impression of your company. Turning top talent away with a career site that doesn’t look professional or is difficult to navigate isn’t a situation you’d like to find yourself in.

Recruitee’s career sites are mobile-responsive. Social media integration is supported, making your job ads easily shareable across various platforms. Application forms are customizable and can be tweaked as you deem necessary to simplify the screening process. And if you’re coding-savvy, custom CSS can be used to personalize your career site’s look and feel. A JavaScript widget and Recruitee’s open API can also be used to push job openings to your company website.

Automated Promotion and Sourcing

To reach as many potential candidates as you can, Recruitee integrates with 800+ paid and free job boards. Click on the Promote tab from the Recruitee main screen, and you’ll be taken to a page with three tabs: Free Job Boards, Premium Job Boards, and Job Links. Free job boards include Indeed.com, Trovit, Glassdoor, Jobbird.com, Eurojobs, and Internship.com. Click on the “Post a job opening” button on your chosen job board, and Recruitee will take care of the rest. Posted jobs are subject to review, and those approved are published within 24 hours.

Premium job boards include LinkedIn, Facebook, Monster.com, CareerBuilder, Stack Overflow, and CollegeRecruiter.com. Prices are listed on their corresponding boards, and discounts can range from 5% to 30%. The Job Links tab contains the link to your job ad on your career site, which you can then distribute on social media or other channels.

For passive candidate sourcing, Recruitee offers free Chrome and Firefox extensions, so you can easily forward candidate profiles from web sources such as LinkedIn, Stack Overflow, GitHub, Facebook, and Twitter to Recruitee.

Talent Pipeline

For every candidate that applies to your open job, a Recruitee record can be created. All applicant data are then stored therein, such as their CVs and other files, email communication with the recruiting staff, as well as reviews and private notes left by individual members of the hiring team. This makes it easy to keep track of the applicant’s progress – from application to disqualification, from phone screening to hiring.

Activities such as moving an applicant from one stage of the recruitment process to another, scheduling an interview, sending the applicant an email, offering an applicant the job, or disqualifying the applicant altogether can be done straight from the candidate’s profile in the system.

Team Communication

So the rest of the recruiting team knows what transpired in a phone screening, interview, or meeting with a candidate, in the Reviews tab of each candidate’s profile, you can leave private notes to fellow recruiters, and even @-mention a specific team member to call their attention.

In the same tab is a text box where you can write a review of the candidate, assess his/her work ethic, attitude, communication skills, and ability to work with a team on a scale of one to five. Your overall recommendation can go anywhere from one to five stars, or poor to excellent. Relevant attachments can likewise be uploaded for team review.

Reporting and Analytics

Recruitee has a built-in reporting functionality that shows you, via graphs and charts, the number of new candidates on a particular date range, how many applied via the career site, and from which external sources the applicants originated from, such as Simply Hired, Monster.com, and Indeed.


Integrations

Recruitee integrates with third-party calendars such as Gmail and iCal, and recruitment services such as Indeed.com, Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Monster.com, CareerBuilder, Dice.com, GitHub, and AllRetailJobs.com.

To retrieve and push jobs from Recruitee to your website, use Recruitee’s API or the JavaScript widget.


Pricing

Recruitee offers five pricing packages: Starter at $19 per month for one active job, Professional at $49 per month for four active jobs, Expert at $99 per month for nine active jobs, and Corporate at $199 per month for 20 active jobs. Pricing for Enterprise, which can be customized according to your needs, can be obtained from the sales team.
