Modern Hiring Software

4.57/5 (184 reviews)
9,934     6,992

Fast-growth companies like Intercom, Babbel, Invision, Tile and Declara, rely on Workable to build great teams. All startups admitted to Facebook's FbStart program are also using Workable to grow.

We value simplicity, choosing the features that matter the most. We haven’t wasted time trying to replicate old-world HR processes but to reimagine hiring with a focus on how we work today and how business has evolved.

We put all our focus on finding the right candidate. The hard part of hiring should be choosing the best candidate from a good shortlist instead of building that shortlist in the first place. Workable will help you spend more time with real prospects and less time screening duds.

We believe that conversation can replace complex workflows, allowing you to easily collaborate with comments and notifications — concepts that any Facebook user is already familiar with.

 Good potential but overpriced

We have tried Workable during the free trial and then for an other free trial that the customer service offered to us in order to complete our trial. Their customer service is effective and fast to answer. The overall app is quite interesting, user friendly, offering good features. However, I ...

pretty expensive for what it is. they deprecated their cheaper pricing tier. craigslist has workable as one of the ban words. i've hired more than a dozen people using workable in the last 6 months. it's convenient but you may find it a little expensive unless you're constantly hiring.

Unable to stop automatic renewal

13/03/2017

This is a useful product however there is no way to stop automatic renewal unless you downgrade the account to a basic version straightaway and lose the remaining time you have left. They are basically penalising you for stopping automatic renewal. This is a manipulative technique meant to encourage you to stay on and then banking on you forgetting to renew the day before your licence is due for renewal.

Pros

User friendly and easy to navigate.

Very expensive for what it offers

02/02/2017

Nice, simple and fresh to use. Nothing particularly fancy about its functionality, it will just save you time putting things on an excel sheet. After two price hikes, the price is now unaffordable.

Pros

Simplicity.

Cons

Very expensive. When it started was very cheap it was a great deal. Then it became very expensive For the functionality, it offers this price is beyond ridiculous. Particularly if you have multiple jobs you will be paying extraordinary amounts of money for a glorified applicant tracking system which you could also do manually on an excel sheet.

Great online recruiting tool

02/02/2017

One of the best things about workable is the "seamless" integration with your company's online profile. Much like Google's business e-mail service, having your company's name/domain (ex: yourcompany.workable.com) gives it a more professional look and feel. Plus, you can easily customize your job post, review and replay to candidates all from Workable. If you're looking for a good online recruiting tool, say no more, Workable is a good choice.

Easy to Use ATS

27/01/2017

Workable is a very intuitive applicant tracking system. Currently using this tool to support talent acquisition for multiple positions.

Pros

Very user-friendly with regards to navigation and user experience. Integrates with Company's website. Good for keeping things organized.

Cons

Have encountered a few issues with scheduling interviews when the inaccurate time was sent out. Integration with BambooHR is okay but it would be nice if the start date could be edited in the process.

Hiring? Hired!

Workable has got to be one of the most dependable hiring apps around. It is amazing for keeping track of things and having a neatly organized list of applicants. It allows you to have so much detail and control over the way you handle your own hiring process. It's very simple and uncomplicated and I enjoy using it often.

Does the job

13/12/2016

I have a free Workable account which I use for US recruitment. It's a pretty standard ATS with various social integrations. It does the job for the amount of recruiting I do.

Pros

Easy communication between hiring managers Pulls candidates' social profiles Integrates with company website Allows for a customized workflow

Cons

Lot's of emails- can get lost Customer support is typically live chat, not phone Updated version doesn't have an easy way to share the job- still, don't know where the job link can be found within the platform.

GetApp Analysis

Workable combines the power of LinkedIn’s 200 million professionals with Internet technology and SaaS pricing.

The benefits for job hunters is the ability to apply for roles with one click, while the benefit for the employer is that they can analyze and display structured data and use this in the screening process.

The solution focuses on simplifying one of the most time-consuming recruitment tasks - looking for and screening candidates.

What is Workable?

Workflow's recruitment solution uses a process that is simple and straightforward. As LinkedIn forms the basis of all operations within the solution, it is therefore vital to have a LinkedIn account to use the software. Immediately after logging into LinkedIn, you are prompted to create a careers page for your organization. This page serves two main functions: it acts as your main homepage on the Workable site and is also used to advertise openings by embedding this page on your company’s website.

Creating jobs within the solution follows a standard workflow of detailing requirements for jobs, establishing screening requirements in which you can assign rules for each of the job criteria, collaborating with co-workers and colleagues to vet applicants, and finally publishing the job to job boards and social media. Workable has already tied up with Indeed, one of the largest job boards on the Internet, to post your job automatically to their site.

Workable has several features to speed up processing of resumes. You can establish preset filters for resumes, as well as collaborating with co-workers and colleagues to mark up individual resumes with comments.

The solution also helps you identify and track statistics related to your hiring efforts through a range of analytics, such as sources for overall responses and best quality responses. This helps job advertisers cut costs by eliminating job boards that do not provide quality leads. The solution also sends you a weekly or daily activity update for all listed positions.

Main Features

One of the more awesome features of the site is the candidate comparison browser, which enables you to compare multiple candidate profiles within a single browser instance. The layout is clean and accommodates multiple candidate profiles at the same time. In addition, it enables you to compare their qualifications against major criteria you have shortlisted for the job. Thus, it speeds up the hiring process.

The interface is simple, clean, and minimal. The homepage consists of two links: Dashboard and Activity. Explaining the concept behind the interface, Moraitakis says that they built a design “that helps you focus on what matters.” The designers seem to have succeeded in that endeavour. While my test account had little by way of details, Moraitakis informs me that most small businesses have packed dashboard with useful information, communicated in a visual format, minus clutter and confusion.

Integrations

On the anvil are several enhancements, including integrations with other, major social networks such as Indeed Apply, Facebook and Github. Integrations with other, major job boards such as Monster, CareerBuilder and SimplyHired are also in the pipeline.

Pricing

Workable uses tiered pricing, based on the number of positions advertised through the solution and support provided. Much like other SaaS solutions, Workable has a free version that can, with increased payments, scale up to an enterprise version. The enterprise version enables users to advertise up to 25 open positions and gets them premium support through multiple channels and a dedicated account manager.
