Pros

The ability to set up proactive communication with the candidates has ensured a seamless alignment with candidates which has improved our connect and engagement significantly.
The backend support (Customer support) is very responsive, the backend developer resolve issue very actively and they are doing great and making this ATS more efficient.
Bulk upload feature is a blessing as the tool can parse PDFs and populate profiles automatically. We love the integration capabilities and it was a breeze to add the job listings to our website.

Pros

My overall experience with Workable has been great. It's easy to use and has a lot of amazing functions to help with our recruiting process.
It was easy to understand, has many useful features, super simple to integrate, fast to implement and is very cost effective.
Workable customer service is very prompt and polite, and always resolve our questions and inquiries quickly and with great advice and support.

Cons

I was hired on to provide recruiting backup, and when I covered for our recruiter one holiday last fall, I was shocked and horrified at the chaos of trying to manage everything via email.
Of course, NO ONE will CALL me even after reading this review - I bet you 10,000 emails they won't even bother. You have been warned - do not buy this ATS.
The review process is a bit confusing. There is a quick review which is apparently different than a regular review.

Cons

I don't like how it seems so easy to accidentally bulk email the wrong candidates, or email a candidate when you intended to leave an internal note.
Customer service so far has been a bit hard to communicate. It maybe a rare occurrence, no more after more usage.
Its basic, wasn't able to schedule send emails and in app emailing function was a bit confusing sometimes.

Workable

Simple, cost effective hiring tracking

Reviewed 6 years ago

We're usually hiring 1-5 people at any given time. Workable allows us to manage jobs, submit and optionally advertise these jobs to various job boards, and manage all interaction with the applicants.

Pros

*Great system! *Collaborate as team to hire. *Manage our applicant progress with the funnel system.

Cons

*Almost none *The system allows you to answer basic questions when the applicant submits an application. However, it would be nice later down the process if there was a way to have standard templated interview questions that our hiring manager could use to ask and record answers.

It would be cool to have a PPC and fixed price option for each job posting site.

Allows a user to manage applicants from initial resume submission to hire The ability to manage and purchase services from multiple recruiting sites

Global Hiring Tool

Reviewed 4 years ago

This software has helped us hire our international workforce without any major issues. We continue to find new integration tools that will help us achieve our hiring goals faste.

Pros

This software has allowed us to connect with multiple employees around the world. The tool allows you to keep control from the beginning of the application process up to the hiring stage, the connectivity with other apps is seamless. We've synced our hiring process with BambooHR and we are happy about it.

Cons

If a potential employee gets rejected once we have to delete the info before they can re-apply, this is a hassle as we can't store previous information or feedback from their first application.

Workable

Does The Job

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use Workable as our primary hiring portal to track a job from posting to final hire. Overall it's been easy and intuitive to use. Great as an active workflow tool.

Pros

Really appreciate how the system keeps a running track of communication, correspondences, and interview invites by day and time for each candidate. Also, the ability for each party in the hiring process to leave their feedback on candidates at each stage of the process, and vote people forward or not, provides such a streamlined workflow for moving applicants through the pipeline. Additional features such as single-click links for syndicating a job posting, and being able to set permissions for each job on the back-end, are incredibly useful as well.

Cons

There is a lot of scrolling-- scrolling down lists of candidates, scrolling down candidate applications. When you are dealing with hundreds of applicants, it can be difficult to track which applications you have read and those you haven't.

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback! In terms of scrolling through candidates, I recommend reaching out to support@workable.com and they can help to optimize your pipeline. Alternatively, we have a webinar on Perfecting your Workable Pipeline: https://help.workable.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016241153--Video-Webinar-Perfecting-your-Workable-pipeline

Great Product

Reviewed 4 years ago

I recently used workable for the first time to hire a new designer for our team, and although it is my first time using a hiring software at all so I don't have much to compare it to, I thought that it made the whole process very smooth and manageable!

Pros

I love that multiple people can be involved in the process simultaneously, being able to see my coworkers comments and compare notes right in the system is very helpful.

Cons

I wish the interface was slightly more user-friendly... it's a bit inefficient having to click back and forth between so many candidates. It would be great if there was a way to compare several side by side at the same time.

It's definitely workable!

Reviewed 8 years ago

Workable is great. It provides a clear and simple space to interview, accept, and hire candidates. I have been using it for the first time for my job as a Program Director for Learning Enterprises, and so far I have not run in to any major difficulties. It's great to have all my applicants' information on one concise site.

Pros

-intuitive design -easy to organize information -kindness of people who run it -"comments" feature- allows my colleagues and me to keep track of our thoughts on the potential applicants all on one site

Cons

-I accidentally moved a candidate from the "offer" to "hired" bucket before she was hired, and I do not know how to move her back. I just e-mailed workable to ask how to reverse it because as of now there is no clear way to move her back.

A great way to find Employees

Reviewed 6 years ago

I've used Workable on several different occasions and each time it did not disappoint me. It's a great way to find employees and to ensure they fit your criteria. The only downside is it tends to be more geared towards bigger companies, not the small guys. It's always quite expensive so I usually do a monthly membership and cancel once I found a new hire.

Pros

The clean interface and customization of your application

Cons

Too expensive and geared towards big businesses

We are a startup, digital agency that is growing fast providing services such as AdWords, Analytics, and A/B testing. Since our last hire, we used Workable to manage the hiring process and it literally saved us a ton of hours. We now think that getting emails with CVs, and replying individually to each, is so 1990 and cannot go back. The really important thing is that Workable has effectively no learning curve. We already use too many services for our core business and would not love to learn to use one more.

Easier hiring

Reviewed 9 years ago

We have already hired three people through Workable and are currently recruiting for another four. The team (including the CEO) uses it daily to screen candidates, and we quickly reach a decision about who to hire. I never expected business software to be addictive and even fun, but Workable comes closer than any! The Workable team has been remarkably supportive, going out of their way to respond not just to technical questions but also giving us advice on how to get more and better candidates, how to organise our hiring, etc. Their support is so responsive, it's like getting free HR consulting for a software that's very inexpensive in the first place.

Overly Impressed

Reviewed 8 years ago

Workable is like a one stop shop for hiring needs. I was first bewildered when trying to hire a Comptroller for our company, I then stumbled upon Workable where I could create ONE platform and it then did all the work for my by sending out our job description to several hiring platforms (Linkedin, Monster, Indeed) and some I had not even heard of. It didn't stop there, when applicants sent me their resumes I had the option to set up phone interviews, person to person interviews and even reject resumes that did not fit the description. As the Hiring Manager at my company, I will definitely be suggesting Workable to our sister companies for their hiring needs. Workable is like a non-pushy recruiter, it finds you the quality of employee you need without the bank breaking price.

Workable is SO much better than the old way of tracking job applicants

Reviewed 8 years ago

We just started using Workable on a suggestion of a good friend who runs an HR software company and has "seen it all." The reason I asked his advice is we were starting the hiring process for a number of new positions and was hoping to find a better way of managing the incoming applications. Last time we did a key hire, we got more than 100 applicants in two weeks. With our old process, it was overwhelming...

The Easiest Applicant Tracking Software to Figure Out

Reviewed 5 years ago

We're a startup with less than 15 people trying to hire 4-5 more. We have two people in charge of recruiting. After getting in touch with other ATS' (Lever, BreezyHR, Jobvite, HiringThing, the Applicant Stack), we went with Workable. This is possibly simply because most of those other softwares put me into a sales cycle queue, and I had to wait 3-4 days before I could talk to someone or see a demo....

Pros

-Incredibly intuitive interface -Upfront pricing that's easy to understand and reasonable (not great, but reasonable) -Customizable pipeline -People Search Chrome extension is INCREDIBLE and no one else has it. -Easy, one step posting to multiple job sites (free and premium) -Custom links so applicants can apply from anywhere and still end up in your pipeline. -On/Off mode: You can pay monthly when you're hiring, and stop when you have no active jobs. You won't lose your data.

Cons

-A few bugs (software doesn't always fetch a photo when you put in an email, even if it finds multiple social profiles) -Customer Support isn't immediate (you have to email, but they usually respond in <6 hours)
