Workable overview

What is Workable?

Workable’s recruiting software has helped 20,000 companies find, evaluate and hire over one million candidates. Building insights gathered from every hire back into its ATS, companies using Workable move from the requisition to offer stage faster.

Empowering customers—from fast-growth start-ups to global organizations—to hire the best, Workable’s hiring software finds more candidates than anyone else. It supports one-click job board advertising across all the best jobs boards, over 700 SEO-optimized job descriptions, and mobile-friendly career pages. With automated candidate sourcing technology built-in, it finds qualified passive candidates at scale too. Powered by AI and machine learning, Workable searches over 400 million online profiles, scans them to recommend best fit candidates and then targets those candidates on social media using automated, personalized outreach.

Workable’s talent acquisition software brings in-house recruiters and hiring teams together so teams can progress with pace to evaluate candidates as soon as they’ve found them. Trackable communication, real-time calendar sync and a top-rated mobile app streamline the process. While interview kits and scorecards make decision-making fairer and more accurate. Using bulk emails and templates, and by empowering candidates to schedule their own interviews at a time that suits, it’s easy to keep candidates informed and engaged. Once the perfect candidate’s been found, automated offer letters make it easy to move fast and make it official. And, after they’re hired, Workable’s applicant tracking system provides recruiting reports to review process and plan future strategy.

Review from The Mental Health Association of Columbia-Greene Counties

Overall our experience with workable has been great no issues that have never been resolved. An easy to use software.

Pros
I like how easy it is to use this software, it is extremely easy to teach new users most of the features that they would need to use. Another thing I love about the software is if you ever have a question most of them can be answered by looking in the help section. I use the chat feature a lot when I am having issues and the response is always fast and efficient.

Cons
I wish there was a way to kick back the voluntary EEO forms to our email when individuals fill them out instead of just a report that can be run.

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.

Response from Workable Software


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.

Much better than tracking applicants manually. Good software with good set of features.

Pros
Good set of features for applicant tracking. Multiple permission levels and users to keep and track internal plus external communication

Cons
Formatting of embedded attachments didn't always display properly. Overall, works well. If you don't keep grooming your list of applications, it can get overwhelming

Response from Workable Software


Thanks for your review! We're glad you enjoy using Workable. I've passed along your feedback about embedded attachments to your Account Manager so that we can get a better understanding for what's happening in your account.

Pros
[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is a rock star. You should ask for her directly as your rep when initializing your contract with Workable. She went above and beyond to deliver excellent customer service and answer my many questions, even though my company size is smaller than those she typically contracts with.

Cons
So far, no complaints. Workable has a great user interface and integrates with CriteriaCorp, our candidate aptitude/personality screening software.

Thanks for your feedback! It's great to hear about your experience with our Sales Team. We're looking forward to having you as a Workable customer!

The Bad Outweighs the Good- Beware Sales!

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Solid tool if you have a fairly simple process; still allows for customization, which is great. Hilariously/infuriatingly rude sales process. No desire to fix issues, just to trap you in contracts.

Pros
Workable has a simple, clean layout that was easy to customize and train my team on. It did exactly what we needed it to do and allows for a good deal of customization for our somewhat-unique hiring process.

Cons
The sales team are vultures. We planned to renew our contract after one year, and confirmed so via *email*. After some discussion, we realized we were probably overpaying; we included People Search in our initial contract (which is terrible and doesn't work reliably at all). We asked our sales rep, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], if we could remove that from our invoice, and were told we already had "a grandfathered deal" and should be glad we weren't paying more. The tone was downright rude. Because we don't need anything too complicated, we decided to move to another ATS with a slightly lower cost. When Workable sent us the invoice to renew, we notified them that we would not be doing so- 2 weeks before contract expiration. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] *so rudely* replied that my verbal acknowledgement a month before was binding, and that we were stuck with another year. Obviously, we're fighting that, but it's really shocking that Workable is more interested in roping customers into contracts than understanding why they want to leave in the first place.

Response from Workable Software


We're so sorry that you did not have a good experience with the Workable product and our Sales Team. Customer success is very important to us. As your Account Manager is in contact with you currently, we will also make sure to further understand everything in this review during our conversation.
