Hirehive is by far the best recruitment system I've experienced in terms of ease of use. It's clear the team at Hirehive care about the UX from the perspective of both the Candidate and Recruiter, and they are committed to ensuring users have the least amount of clicks to perform tasks, which pleases me! And best of all is that it is both configurable and customizable at Admin level; something you don't always get with this kind of software, giving me full control over how my hiring managers use the system, and how I categorize my candidate pipeline. At a basic functionality level, it does exactly what a good ATS should do, but there are little extras that make my life much easier so I can get on with the other element of my HR role. Some of my favorite product features include:
I can move candidates between jobs if I think an applicant is more suited to a different role.
At a glance, the pipeline is very clear to see per role, so I can clearly see what stage I'm at for each role.
Quick and easy reporting which means I don't have to do any analysis at my end to gather insights.
I can respond to candidates via email and HH will track this.
Quick and easy to make notes on candidates and attach files. This might sound like a standard feature but I've used other systems that haven't supported this.
I can shortlist with just one or two clicks.
Setting up interviews is easy and intuitive from an admin perspective and also for the hiring manager.
There may be some work required to make the mobile version a little easier to navigate - perhaps some bugs here
