From implementation to ongoing support and problem-solving/troubleshooting. Self-Management Group has gone above and beyond from a user-experience to integrating the latest technology.

Pros

We have control over the majority of functionality for posting jobs and managing candidates. Real-time support and EXCEPTIONAL customer service.

Cons

Currently unable to attach external documents to candidate files -however, we may be able to in future - enhanced reporting would be welcomed.

Talent Nest... A good start

2018-12-18

Solid, but with a handful of pretty significant gaps

Pros

- the customer service support team is responsive, freindly and helpful -

Cons

It is cumbersome and has a very limited ability to track candidates via creating reminders. The tagging system works, but is ultimately in efficient as it means we have to have to proactively monitor a canidate's profile.

Amazing!

Pros

This product has helped our company keep candidate information organization, analyze data through the reporting tools that are offered and efforts to make better hiring decisions and has saved our recruiters countless hours so that they can focus more on hiring for the right fit!

Cons

Nothing that I can report - I truly believe the software is extremely user friendly and the Account Managers with TalentNest are always available to answer questions.

As a recruiter

2018-12-18

Pros

Quick review is a great feature, reporting is also pretty good.

Cons

We did not have all functionality, given what we purchased and customized it was a good platform . My reviews are based on the features we had and not on the system as a whole

First time user

This is an issue because if I don't remember to check that the note has been saved, there is potential for me to miss/lose information pertinent to candidate tracking. Overall, I have liked Talent Nest.

Pros

Very easy to track progress of candidates.

Cons

It would be great to have a function where I can bcc TN when I send an email to a candidate and have it saved in the notes to assist with tracking communications.

Some enhancements needed but open to feedback and are releasing enhancements

2017-02-28

They are open to feedback to improve their product and are willing to provide things like ad hoc reports to bridge gaps.

Pros

Good support and friend people to work with. They have a true willingness to help.

Cons

We have a unique multi-location implementation so the system doesn't work for our needs all the time.

Review of Talentnest by Recruiting Concepts

2019-09-17

Has created a very useful database for me where I used to operate in a very manual fashion.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that it has streamlined my recruiting business.

Cons

I would like to make changes to the demographic questions on occasion after I have connected them to a job, this has been a bit tough, customer support team has been helpful though so not a real complaint.

TalentNest has helped us find the best employees in our area!

2019-09-18

Overall, I would recommend TalentNest. It has proved to help expend our hiring process and find the candidates who are the best fit for our team.

Pros

If we ever need statistics or have a question about a feature that may help us better use the software, they are always willing to help.

Cons

One thing I wish we had the ability to do was have folders inside of our platform. For example there are some resumes I would like to keep on file connected with a specific job for future consideration. I find the tags to be confusing and unorganized.

Review of Talent Nest - Experience since October 2016

2017-02-23

For Example: Search all candidates with no tags, search new applicants only, add an additional column - original application date

Pros

Ease of use, and quick access to multiple files, using tags.

Cons

This action makes it difficult for the new leads to be distributed, as every file must be accessed to see if it has just been updated or if there is new applicant..

Great Tool to Manage the Hiring Process

2019-09-17

TN allows you to track a candidate from their initial submission to the hiring process and all the steps in between.

Pros

The customer support at TalentNest is absolutely the best. There is no issue they can't help with and always do it with positivity.

Cons

There are no issues that I don't like. The few issues I had early on were corrected by the TN team.
