Pros
To a user, they all love it. Having worked with some of the more complicated and expensive tools on the market, I was very pleased to see how TAM integrated with my hiring processes.
The vendor has been extremely helpful and responsive when I've had questions. I evaluated several systems, and felt that TAM would best meet our needs at a reasonable price.
From the ease of application to friendly and prompt customer service, this is by far my favorite system to use.
Cons
Missing a bunch functions. They could, in theory, be available but because we have a limited budget we only pay for 1 user they are not.
There are parts when sending the rejection letters that's a bit confusing. The tables become distorted and it doesn't give you a message if the template run before hitting Save.
Training and customer service was poor. We researched and had several vendors that we had demos with.

TAM is the BEST!

Reviewed 5 years ago

TAM has been the perfect way to track candidates and add notes, etc. I love that I can pull up applicants and filter them in an excel spreadsheet.

Pros

TAM is so easy to use; it is incredibly user friendly and easy to figure out if you have never used a tracking system.

Cons

Honestly, nothing. Sometimes the "notes" section in the candidate window doesn't work, but that is the only complaint I have.

TAM is one of the cheapest month to month plans, while still being able to customize and automate the hiring process.

Reviewed 7 years ago

All in all, TAM is a good application tracking system. It's a lot better than hiring by email, and using excel files. They do have quite a bit of con, BUT it is one of the most advanced application tracking systems for a user. If you're mostly interested in keeping all of your applicants in one place, and easily posting jobs, TAM is a great option

Pros

-I like the Staff, has been amazing, she has helped me understand quite a bit about the software, and shes even offered several great suggestions, to make my workflow easier. I like that each user is assigned one designated go-to person. -I like the filtering features. You can view all candidates, and simply type what you want to see in each column. Other systems weren't as easy to filter out unwanted...

Cons

-I don't like the implementation fee. I'm quite a self learner. Although I was showed a few things, and answered a few questions. I'm not sure if its price is worth that. I set up everything during my trial run. Support walked me through all of her phases of training, yet everything I had already completed. -I don't like that the color schemes on the graphs. Its all shades of blue, so when you have...

Vendor response

Jessica, thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We particularly appreciate your feedback on our implementation fee. You are definitely a strong self-starter and did a ton of less-guided work, once we had your system set up, but our tech team’s extensive work in getting your system customized and ready for that work is the same regardless of user skill, and dictates part of our implementation...

Easy to Use

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great customer service, fast response.

Pros

TAM is user-friendly and easy to use. The reporting features make it easy to search far back and filter as needed. It's great that the job postings are automatically posted on external sites such as Indeed and Glassdoor.

Cons

I think the over website could be updated as it seems outdated. It would be also nice for candidates to be able to create a profile so they can apply for multiple positions at a time without having to apply for each separate.

Great starter ATS

Reviewed 6 years ago

Great starter ATS system. We did not have anything in place before this system and it has helped streamline our process.

Pros

Great starter ATS system. Easy to use. visually appealing Quick set up Collects all info in 1 place.

Cons

Pay per user Missing a bunch functions. They could, in theory, be available but because we have a limited budget we only pay for 1 user they are not. Not the best customer service. Does not work on all browswers

Vendor response

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit a review! We've had a hard time reaching you for your regular support check-ins, so we're bummed, but not too surprised to see some misunderstandings here. First, TAM is a full-featured ATS and every client (single users to multi-national organizations) has access to all of TAM's functions, regardless of the number of users. Can we meet up some time soon...

Pros and Cons for on line applications

Reviewed 5 years ago

It has been a useful tool to glean the information I need to make an informed choice of applicants.

Pros

Connectivity to my email for new applicants.

Cons

Sometimes the applicants have difficulty navigating the resume and application. The resume will not download, therefore, I cannot view it.
