“Best in class ATS”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

There are many ways to view and filter activity on Greenhouse. This allows me to pull relevant information on the fly for various stakeholders.

What do you dislike?

I'd love if the mobile app had more of the web-based admin features.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Greenhouse ensures that no applicant falls through the cracks and everyone gets a consistent candidate experience. Additionally, all of my internal interviewers have developed their interviewing skills rapidly and are very confident walking into an interview with a candidate, due to the nature of the interview kits.

“Greenhouse or... Greenhouse. Simple as that! ”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

From the teams internal mindset & culture to their customer service to the value of their platform, Greenhouse embodies what it means to have GREAT people and a GREAT product/technology.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that when I setup a new job that the details / description does not automatically transfer to the actual job post. It forces you to copy and paste and is an added step that takes a few minutes when it should not take any extra time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a clear cut winner over all the competition. Don't waste your time or money elsewhere.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving our ability to track candidates who might not be ready to leave their organization at the current moment, but adds them to our pipeline and allows us to manage all talent from proactive to passive recruiting and more. We have hired some talented people that might not have otherwise found us.

“Best Hiring Platform on the Market”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

Excellent customer service, robust and customizable platform, automates everything that can (and should) be automated. Greenhouse is a wonderful platform - I'd recommend it over any other competitive product on the market.

What do you dislike?

Arbitrary feature compartmentalization and pricing tiers. The logic informing which feature sets lie in each pricing tier seem somewhat counterintuitive - and the pricing for a la carte features is a bit unreasonable.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Job approvals and postings, applicant tracking, interview process management, reporting, offer process management. Greenhouse drives our end-to-end hiring process and has increase adoption and engagement among our managers and staff. It's solved nearly every problem related to improving interviewing and hiring at our organization - Greenhouse is a heroic piece of software. Worth every penny.

“Recruiter”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The best thing about greenhouse is it's User Interface. I am able to upload profiles easily, post jobs, screen resumes, make offers - all within the system. When set up correctly it is great.

What do you dislike?

The internal job post is not copied after you create a job post and configure the external job post. It used to have this functionality (like it used to work and now it does not). They cannot figure out a solution, it really irks me. Seems like a simple solution and has not been resolves in I would say years. For some reason this is the most upsetting thing to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend greenhouse over all other ATS I have used. So would say do it quickly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ATS and issues with candidates. Not sure the question. It helps with recruiting and helping it stay organized. Benefits realized, organization would be the honest answer.

“Love it”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

I love how smooth Greenhouse is to use. It is easy to customize jobs, to track candidates through the system, to keep hiring managers in the loop of what progress is being made on each requisition.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes wish their reports were a little easier to filter. It would be nice to be able to save not just reports but have default filters so that I don't have to click into them every time I pull a new report.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hiring Manager communication is so easy! Being able to automate stage change notifications as well as personalized scorecards is really wonderful.

“Easy, flexible tool to optimize your recruiting processes”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The ease and flexibility of Greenhouse makes setting up interview processes very simple and fast. The workflows that trigger managers and interviewers for feedback means that I don't have to hunt people down. The new scheduling tool makes calendar coordination a breeze!

What do you dislike?

As the system administrator you have to be very careful about keeping things buttoned down so permission levels are critical. It's very easy for a manager to reject a candidate without telling you and you may not notice the candidate has not been communicated with since they will fall out of the applicant queue at rejection. The reporting is decent but I have to use several reports to get what I need and then merge that into the spreadsheets that my business leaders want to see.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Greenhouse offered us a much more digitally progressive way for candidates to apply. Job seekers can easily apply through their mobile devices using their LinkedIn profiles. We have gone through explosive growth and I could never have kept up with the workload without Greenhouse's optimization. As an organization, we are getting better at using the scorecards to support a structured, performance based interview process and it is helping the quality of hire increase over time.

“Best ATS and I've used a lot of them”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

It's recruiting software made by recruiters. Everything is so easy to use and very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Can't think of anything to complain about

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You won't regret it - it will grow with your company as you grow. Or it has the capability to support an established organization

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a rapidly growing start-up. Everything moves at the speed of light. We need our recruiting process to do the same. All of that is possible with Greenhouse.

“Best ATS I've ever used!”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The "interview packets" and scorecards help us ensure that every interview is unique and focused. We get a lot of great feedback on our candidate experience that we are communicating regularly and our candidates are not answering the same questions over and over. The scorecards have helped us tremendously in hiring the best candidate for the role by ensuring that every interviewer's voice is heard and that everyone's view strengths and concerns are carefully considered.

What do you dislike?

As an administrator, there are some improvements that could be made to some of the UI - a few too many clicks in some areas. The UI for basic users is great.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits that we have gained from using this system is that we are focusing not only on the skill requirements for the job but we have integrated our core values as a part of the process and our interviewers are clear on the areas that they are to be focused on. We no longer have interviewers trying to skim the surface on many areas, but they are going deep in just a few areas. Then during our debriefing sessions, our interview team can compare notes and make an solid, informed hiring decision.

Such an intuitive system; easy to use, masses of functionality (brilliant integrations), GDPR compliant, allows us to automate the smaller, fiddly tasks and spend time on the interactions that really matter.
