Workable Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • I am a former ADP eV5 user and while Workable is better, it could still use some work. The interface is nice and seems like it’s easy to find your way around but not as intuitive as I would like.Verified ReviewerRead the full review
  • My favorite feature is the ability to email candidates directly from the software. It's a great way to keep yourself organized especially when you are emailing a dozen candidates.Michael K.Read the full review
  • It's functional and gets the job done, but there are absolutely no "WOW" feature. Many competitors are coming up with better feature set nowadays, but pricing is good, which compensates.Alexandre B.Read the full review
Cons
  • They were absolutely rude, I wanted to post a job and my posting was immediately rejected, they were incredibly unhelpful and refused to assist me.Erika B.Read the full review
  • I understand that this is a trial package, but it should not be so hard to do a job posting just because you are unable to go through 3 step verification they have.Verified ReviewerRead the full review

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.

Pros
a single inbox for everyone involved in hiring predefined (& user customizable) templates make it easy to send single/bulk emails intuitive user interface free (&paid) postings to multiple job boards

Cons
pretty expensive for what it is. they deprecated their cheaper pricing tier. craigslist has workable as one of the ban words

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.

I have been using Workable for many years, at several different companies and can not say enough great things about this product. Its UI is fantastic, integration with sites such as indeed, monster etc. are seamless and have many other integrations are great.

Pros
What is there not to like. Pros 1. Low cost 2. Easy integration with O365 and Google 3. Collaboration/team sharing of information on candidates 4. Great UI 5. Easy integration to Co. website 6. Easy posting to both free and paid job boards

Cons
Cons 1. must be a premium license holder for some of the functionality and integrations and the price change is rather large moving from one license type to another. 2. no way to countersign offer letter 3. Would be nice if they could handle onboarding as well as an add on feature.

Work on your customer service, you will make more $$$ in the long run if you retain clients.

Pros
- Easy to set up and use, but lacks features for its price range - Workable started out well, but there are many hidden hiccups and charges. Not worth the effort for something this expensive.

Cons
- Lack of Customer Support, they will force you to pay extra to use something you have already paid for - Lack flexibility, you are forced to pay upfront. If you choose to 'pay as you go plan,' you will miss out on many functionalities and will have to pay more - Predatory business model, they are here to make $$$, not to retain their users

Pros
Easy to set up and start posting jobs. The interface is easy to understand and you don't need to waste anytime with user guides or training for that matter. Their support team is very accessible and I rarely "can't" get a hold of them. The price is also a reasonably easy sell to decision makers.

Cons
It leaves something to be desired. I have used Jazz in the past and Jazz offers way more candidate focused ./ user focused features that Workable just hasn't done. When you do ask the Support staff they usually don't even had the feature ideas on a product roadmap which is frustrating because with a software purchase you hope they are always going to improve it. It's a low cost option and that becomes obvious when you start using the software.

We have already hired three people through Workable and are currently recruiting for another four. The team (including the CEO) uses it daily to screen candidates, and we quickly reach a decision about who to hire. I never expected business software to be addictive and even fun, but Workable comes closer than any! The Workable team has been remarkably supportive, going out of their way to respond not just to technical questions but also giving us advice on how to get more and better candidates, how to organise our hiring, etc. Their support is so responsive, it's like getting free HR consulting for a software that's very inexpensive in the first place.

Review Source: Software Advice

This is a great product and I'm very frustrated that in a very short time they have cut out the smaller companies with their pricing. I really had not planned on looking at other ATS systems but worry what else is ahead for the "legacy" users.

Pros
Up till now I have been very happy with this product. New enhancements have slowly been coming out and when a bug is found it is reported and fixed in acceptable time. Support is very reactive and easy to work with. When I chose this software, I liked that they charged by the job and not by the user, since I'm the main one that uses it with 6 others using the interview part of the pipeline and we only need about 10 jobs at one time.

Cons
For my small boutique consulting firm, what turned out to be a pro has now turned into a con. the cost is the main issue.

Great tool that makes posting jobs and getting candidates very easy. Cost effective especially compared to their competitors.

Pros
Workable is both effective and affordable. It helped me find lots of candidates to review faster than any other job board system I’ve ever used.

Cons
The email created was initially confusing. Distinguishing between the system emails and my communication with potential candidates was a challenge but makes sense after using the software for a bit.

Pros
It's simple and easy to use. Easily posts to external job boards with just a click. The employer careers pages are simple and clean- could be more customizable and interactive but the product is fairly cheap compared to competitors. Customer service is FAST and always helpful. We've been with workable since the beginning and they've taken our feedback into consideration.

Cons
The only real downside is the database search is somewhat cheap. I'm a huge pipeline recruiter- their hashtags to categorize help but a boolean search function would be awesome.

Simplicity that works

Review Source: GetApp

I have used workable recently in the context of the small agency I have co-founded. By first looking at the app, I had doubts how would this be any better than keeping track of the hiring process in, say, an Excel sheet. It turned out that the biggest gain from Workable is tidiness and simplicity. You get all the info in one place, reminders take the burden of remembering out of your head, you can compare easily the submissions and filter those unwanted.

Pros
Simple, straightforward, clear.

Cons
Pricing model could be more flexible.

It's a good company and a good platform that is easy to use. If you are looking for a more cost effective option and are okay with losing some of the features you would get with a bigger ATS, Workable is a good choice.

Very easy to use system, and the interfaces are intuitive for admins, users, and applicants. Each job goes out to 12 free job boards and candidates find it very easy to apply. Also allows candidates to apply with LinkedIn. Tracking of candidates through each job process is very easy with the "Bins" that peoples can flow through. Email templates, interview templates help keep the process simple and effective. Workable allows for each integration with HRIS, screening tools, and other interfaces.
