Administrator in Construction

ApplicantPro has been a big help in organizing our applicant flow and making sure applicants are not slipping through the cracks like they did when we only accepted paper applications. The status of applications alone has helped those in the selection...

I like that it's easy to use and that you can customize questions to get the responses you are specifically looking for

Most Helpful Critical Review

Rene R.
User in Government Relations

The system does not have an applicant status that are required by stages to go through. you can skip through the status rather than having to go through each step

User in Staffing and Recruiting

I have no ability to differentiate between customers in the phone interview stage vs face to face interview stage
