talentReef Product Review

2016-10-18

Overall we are fairly satisfied with this product. I believe we were oversold on some of its functions and are still working through a couple major concerns about one year after implementation.

Sticking with TR

2016-09-06

Pros

TalentReef has good reporting capabilities, and invested sales and development teams.

Cons

Managers usually have better luck than employees at getting assistance, but even then, it seems they are often non-responsive on the phone.

Recommendations to others considering talentReef

Make sure you know what your needs are before signing a contract with any company. We were close to signing contracts with other vendors, but found a few non-negotiables (like tracking pay changes) that they couldn't provide. We also are very price sensitive, so talentReef proved a great fit on price point and delivery.

Our entire organization uses TalentReef for recruiting, hiring, onboarding and managing employee files.

Pros

Great product and great people! •The service from TalentReef has been top notch!

Cons

If any organization is looking to use talentReef, I would suggest they make sure they have a project lead. talentReef is a customizable platform that can be used to help your business.

Generally okay. Can be difficult to navigate, and customer support is hit or miss with assisting in trouble shooting problems

2018-07-21

Pros

It's nice to have online access to personnel files vs. keeping employee folders. Recruiting tools are nice

Cons

Difficult to navigate at times. there are several portals/tabs for each employee, which make it on line files seem a little scattered

Very robust talent management software that could use some tweaks to the UI

2017-10-05

Pros

From applications, interviewing, hiring and tracking all legal needs this software delivers in a very vibrant UI.

Cons

The completion of certain forms is an ongoing thorn for what would be an otherwise great piece of software. On both the onboarding team member, as well as the overseeing manager, there are times where it can be confusing to know if a certain task/field has been filled out and has led to some delays in completing a team members hire process.

All-in-one and easy to learn.

2019-09-02

Our HR staff have become much more efficient with talent management since making the switch.

Pros

For our administrators, they are able to select applications, schedule interviews, leaves interview notes, hire, complete the full on-boarding process, and then continue to document employee issues and other events for potential future use.

Cons

Because there are so many features, the learning process can take some time. They do offer great support however to help ensure each client is supported in a timely manner.

Overall a Good product

2018-08-08

We use talentReef for sourcing and applicant tracking only, so I cannot speak to the other features.

Pros

Our Account Rep is great and responds to things quickly Overall a good product for the price Set up for a franchise environment

Cons

Could be more user friendly - some steps in the hiring process are not intuitive Sometimes communication could be improved - a report we use quite often was taken away, but we were not given any warning Some trouble integrating with other systems

Talent reef is a very useful product that makes administrative tasks much easier.

2017-11-07

Organization and time savings

Pros

My favorite thing about talent reef is having all required employee paperwork in one place.

Cons

The only negative I can come up with is that we sometimes come across hiccups where a potential employee is not able to view available job opportunities even if they meet all requirements.

All inclusive and economical solution for hiring, and on boarding of employees, with some limited HRIS functions

2017-10-31

Talentreef works extremely well as solid ATS option and has a very good UI in this area.

Pros

It has allowed us to go paperless with most hiring functions and saved a lot of adminstration time. It is a reasonably priced option for our mid size company.

Cons

Some of the back end features could have better mobile device usability.

A big waste of money and our time trying to make it work.

Pros

This software in theory is a great idea but it doesn't work. Dashboard is user friendly.

Cons

We get about 1 resume a week which in a changing business environment of hourly employees you need to be able to hire one a week and have choices!!

Disappointing from start to finish

2017-01-24

We were promised so many things by the salesperson and then when it came to implementation, we didn't have any of the functionality that we needed. And the implementation was messy and not organized or planned at all.

Pros

Dashboard is attractive/easy to read

Cons

Absolutely no ability to individualize or brand and emails are not recorded.

If you are fine not being able to personalize or brand your communications, this product may work for you. It's very plain and not candidate-centric at all. If you would prefer to have the ability to make it your own, then I would not recommend this product at all.

TalentReef is helping me organize our hiring and onboarding process!

2018-06-09

Organization! When you are constantly hiring new staff, you need a system that keeps all the information and files organized.

Pros

I am able to keep all employee related documents in the system so when I need something I can find it right away.

Cons

The cognitive tests they provide are not very challenging. The tests are good for an entry level position but not for the job openings I have.

Not user friendly, now stuck while trying to move to another provider

2017-04-16

the problem is that the functions of downloading employee file does not work, now I am stuck and unable to get all the files off, and the customer service email "center of excellence" does not responding to you.

Pros

If you are a go first shot, and never make any changes again, you would be fine. It does bring in applicants and in a decent format, also onboarding is attractive.

Cons

No customer service, you have to email and they will reply when they feel like it.

Good for onboarding but leaves more to be desired.

2021-05-06

We've used it to hire our staff for over 4 years so there's that. It just feels like it should do more for the cost.

Pros

I think it shows the applicants scoring pretty well and enjoy being able to filter through applicants based on their assessment they take when applying.

Cons

There were times where my boss the administrator had to change or add forms and it didn't feel real user friendly.
