What do you like best?

The useful part is that anything a recruiter needs it would be reflected in fields. Would assume that it can be customised. UI is clear and provides a snapshot of your CRM database. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Might sometime display too much information at once. Could have a nicer experience in terms of sorting information etc. But overall was great too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Could consider if using for recruitment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Specific to recruitment industry - candidates information and experience can be clearly obtained in a snapshot which was great. Contracts and information are readily available tagged to a contact. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

JA just makes the entire recruitment process faster, simpler and smarter, without making things too complicated. It's the easiest recruitment system I have ever use and it continues to evolve...getting better and better. And their support is amazing! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm not the biggest fan of the compulsory "Seek Screen". It takes up valuable space Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have a demo - this system is seriously easy to use and makes life as a recruiter so much easier. If you are looking to change systems or never used one before, this will be a game changer for your business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We recruit throughout NZ and into Australia & Pacific, with many applications from overseas. We have many templates saved, so we can get the process started and stay one step ahead. We find the Hellosign & Referoo integration especially beneficial. Saves us time and we can wee when things are progressing. Essentially, it saves us time and money.

What do you like best?

We have been using JobAdder for nearly 5 years now, and apart from providing us with a database that helps our business with efficiency & storing our data securely, they are always one step ahead of the game in regards to technology. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at this stage, a few features we needed were not included in the platform for the first few years, but as time has gone on JobAdder had addressed all of our needs and developed them into features we could only have dreamed of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Storing our data clearly and being able to find information easily. We have a huge database which could easily get neglected if you could not find the information easily. They have powerful search functions which makes a recruiters job much easier. More time for our recruiters to connect with people! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Quick view and boolean searching has made my work load much easier to source the best talent for my roles. The platform is always easy to navigate and comes with clear guides when ever there is an update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do miss the Index being located across the top of the page as I usually have lots of tabs open during an in-depth search. I used to be able to scroll through my job applications while I had a quick view resume open which made it easier to go through a page of applications without stopping and starting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The platform is one of the easiest I have used and when starting with this company the opportunity to do training with the JobAdder team at their office was great - to get more information, tricks and meet the team on a human level too! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I spend a lot of my time culling down applications and JobAdder has made this system a lot quicker and easier to read. Finding the right talent for certain areas is a challenge however using folders helps me archive candidates for a later date to make it easier to review strong applications down the track.

Able to put all your jobs in one system; able to create files for later use; can email more than one candidate at the same time; attached to LinkedIn and can view candidate via LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When you attached a summary it does not go into the summary tab. You need to cut and paste the summary in the candidate breakdown in order to see the review. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the home screen features, I can track my jobs, track the progress, click straight into where I want to be. I like the notes sections so I can communicate with my colleague easily regarding candidates and they can be tracked easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that I can only search for 500 candidates at one time, I do a candidate mail out once a month and it slows me down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The ability to talk to each other using the notes facility, and log what we are talking about. The ease of communication with candidates, and being able to keep track of progress on jobs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Linking a candidate to a job (saves time and could do away with my paper spreadsheets).

2. Overview of progress (my active jobs, taking note of the number of candidates per stage)

3. New video cover letter (how could I not have thought of this?)

4. Reference platform - amazing! The struggle is real when one switches to a Mac, especially when I miss my MS Word (the normal version... not the same on a Mac). Have ended up saving reference checks in formats only aliens can open... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Still to find something I dislike as the response time to any issues are almost immediate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy to use with great support, not too mention the features being rolled out on a regular basis - setting the benchmark for competitors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

1. Job vs candidate tracking (easier to keep track and stay on top of the ball).

2. TIme and paper saving, where I used to compile spreadsheets and notes by hand. Now there is no need to keep on duplicating.

3. Internal communication whilst being offsite / at home. Simply tag a colleague in a comment and rest assured that they've received it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's functional. Posting ads is straightforward. Ad response is easy. Better than Bullhorn on those points. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't understand why JA don't have a feature to remove candidates at the application stage - if I flag them as being rubbish, then don't add them to the database. Deleting 100 candidates from the database every time I post an ad is very time-consuming. Bullhorn wins on that one.

Bullhorn would amend my database as required, but getting anything changed in JA is near impossible. Posting to a forum and seeing which one is most popular is basically just JA saying 'we're only interested in pleasing the majority' Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Find somebody that'll let you play about on their JA before you sign up, because it's not as good as you might think. And it's expensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It's a central location, even if it could be much better.

Ad response is much better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The simplicity of using it - you can get up and running very quickly without any training as its so intuitive.

Withing a few clicks you can upload CV's, create a candidate and add them to a job.

Creating a job ad is really easy too and it synchs with all the major job boards so you can load up jobs really quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Absolutely nothing -they are continually improving things and have a great helpdesk so I'm never kept waiting long to get things fixed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Definitely try it, you won't regret it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I run my recruitment agency from it and

It's fantastic value to use.

I can work anywhere from a PC or from the mobile app.

The admin function is excellent, allowing me to add and change candidate/client emails and reminders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I'd like to be able to mark candidates that will never be suitable for a role as unsuccessful and then for JA to remember that and automatically mark them as unsuccessful every time they apply in the future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Customer Service, Constant introduction of new ways to use JobAdder effectively, Support is fast and effective, Easy to use (GUI), Mobile version makes life easier on the go, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like for JobAdder to have workshops more constantly - Webinars and also to come out to various locations ( I did one in Brisbane) and do workshops. The workshops are great to pick up new ideas, see how others use the software and to meet the JobAdder staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

JobAdder is recruitment software that provides the user with the benefits of any of the high end software available in the market today whilst still being easy to use and effective. I recommend that the administrator and the team take time during set up to make sure that JobAdder is created with your companies recruitment workflow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recruitment - Obtaining information quicker to find and keep real-time records of candidates. Using the phone App has been fantastic as it syncs well and the functions of the app allow me to continue working away from the office. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

- implementation was not as easy as it could of been as the Australian based consultant was extremely busy and hard to get contact of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's intuitive, flexible and in general easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some vital features are very poor, the interview scheduling for example is worse, more difficult to use and less flexible than software I was using 20 years ago. It's especially frustrating that they roll out new fringe features before fixing vital stuff like this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's good, but not great. if they focused their efforts on perfecting current key features like search and interview confirmation rather than new fringe features it would quickly be a great system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
