"Highly customizable tool with a good support team"

What do you like best?

I like that you can map fields, so you can keep the integrity of the data in your requisitions, which in turn helps when creating the users.

Also, you can schedule reports, so it takes a lot of effort off from the administrator of the tool.

What do you dislike?

That they charge for using the APIs, so even if there are turn key integrations, you need to pay more for using it because the API needs to be enabled.

Creating reports is not really intuitive, and it's necessary to start building your reports using the templates that they have. It would be better to just get a clean template to start.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Jobvite, it is a very good tool, but its support team really make a difference in the experience.

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

We have a recruitment page that has been customized for the company, making the candidate experience better than it would if we sent them to another 3rd party site.

Requisitions are being created with mapped fields, so all the openings match the structure that we would have in our HRMS.

"Jobvite Hire is efficient and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like that Jobvite has the option of letting employment agencies post jobs to 15,000 boards with one click. You can also post on 300 plus social media networks. Jobvite also works perfectly on mobile devices. I like most is the Continuous Candidate Engagement which is a candidate-centric recruiting model that helps engage candidates at the right time and in the right way.

What do you dislike?

I dislike absolutely nothing about Jobvite because it has everything hiring teams or individual job seekers need. The one think I would say that I do dislike is the pricing for individuals because it is somewhat expensive especially if they only need help being hired by one or two companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Jobvite to both individual job seekers and employment agencies. This website has so much to offer and it is extremely easy to use. The text recruiting feature is helpful and self explanatory. The features implement chatbots, messenger and Jobvite Text. It helps recruiters engage more candidates, more effectively and more quickly. It also helps individual job seekers to engage with the recruiters more effectively and quickly and you will never miss an interview opportunity.

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

The business problems that I have solved with Jobvite is the background checks. The benefits I realized is the creation of marketing journeys and pre-screening forms. The other benefits I like personally are the social recruiting capabilities, mobile-optimized branded career sites, a recruiting branding solution, on-demand video screening, advanced analytics, on boarding, and seamless integration with other HR systems.

What Applicant Tracking System (ATS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Jobvite review - the all in one recruitment ATS"

What do you like best?

Jobvite is a comprehensive ATS full with lots of features and integrations. Some of our best aspects of Jobvite are below:

The ability to integrate with a long list of other HR / recruitment systems and tools. Particularly the integration with linkedin and docusign.

The comprehensive reporting functionality allowing you to create pre defined reports as well as the ability to create your own reports and share these reports internally.

The customer service is fantastic, available straight away almost all of the time, even though we are based in South East Asia. The agents knowledge of the system and ticket tracking is great

What do you dislike?

The interface could do with a bit of work, it does feel a bit dated, mainly the internal careers site.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure that you check out all the features that Jobvite has to offer. There really are a lot. Take into consideration if you need all these features and whether your company is well suited to a beefed out comprehensive ATS. There are cheaper ATS's out there but none that really have the feature set of Jobvite - make sure you use them!

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

We are able to track budgets a lot easier. We are able to see which recruiters are performing well or not to standard. We are able to increase our reach on social media and recruitment marketing in general and save on budget spent on these platforms.

"Jobvite has helped Covia with modern-day recruiting!"

What do you like best?

Keeps recruiting process organized! Our remote recruiters have a tool that works and is easy to navigate the workflow steps seem logical. Workflow touches on all the important aspects of recruiting and selection and able to move up/down/skip steps as needed. Able to customize somewhat or create a work-around.

What do you dislike?

Not able to modify workflow to fit our exact needs; work-arounds can get confusing. Must find a better way to load Job Ads for field mapping (HTML format only) and be able to make permanent edits on-demand (vs. adhoc). Jobvite Onboarding product needs an overhaul and create a simple OnboardingLite to accommodate SSN and DOB for onboarding integration with some HRM systems (ADP Vantage).

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

Move from a manual process that was functioning in silos; needed more collaboration and centralization of recruiting process and compliance. The field HR Managers perform the Recruiter function and role in Jobvite; they are becoming better recruiters and follow a process that helps them stay compliant. We now have a tool to run reports and show metrics.

"Innovative technology that helps create a streamlined recruiting platform for our growing company!"

What do you like best?

Jobvite is user friendly and allows for a lot of customization to fit your company's needs. I love the Publisher feature within Jobvite that allows for our employees to automatically post jobs to social media. I also love how Jobvite is able to integrate with many other systems such as DocuSign, Job Target, HireRight, etc. to create a seamless process. We use every feature of Jobvite, except Texting, which we will be getting this summer!

What do you dislike?

We rely on Jobvite's video interview feature and the fact that it is not a part of the Hiring Team Mobile app nor can you use a mobile device to record the video is something that really hinders our ability to use it like we could.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Call and speak to users of the system for detailed questions and answers. This will allow you to be able to explain how you need Jobvite to perform and allow the user to provide feedback on it functionality. Jobvite is customizable and can fit any organization's needs.

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

Jobvite solves our OFCCP compliance concerns with JobTarget and reporting. Jobvite also is equipped with GDPR compliance for international hiring. It is a platform that allows for all department hiring managers to control their recruitment process, have hands on involvement if desired, and allows for collaboration within the system. Everything we do with a candidate is housed in Jobvite from our careers website to the candidate's new hire paperwork!

"Jobvite - Helping HR Teams Become More Efficient Every Day"

What do you like best?

SoutheastHEALTH currently uses Jobvite Hire, Jobvite Onboarding, and Jobvite Engage and we really like how all 3 systems work independently of each other - yet improve the processes from sourcing future candidates (engage), creating candidate experience for current applicants (hire), and ensuring a smooth and efficient new hire process (onboarding). Even better than all that - the amazing support that Jobvite provides its customers is unmatched by any ATS system I have used in my career thus far. From the top of the organization down to the front line team making it happen every day. They always seem to be one step ahead of the current trends of what is cutting edge in our industry.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything major that we dislike about Jobvite. One minor detail is that Jobvite doesn't offer the possibility to run reports with custom fields. From an HR Metrics perspective - this would give us a better sense of the more specific things we like to measure. However - they have so many valuable and relevant reports that still help you see the bigger picture of your process.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I came from an organization using another ATS and was not happy at all with that system. It was complex and clunky and quite often it would crash and go down. At one point - they had too much data to support and they had to start uploading data to the cloud and we lost some data for a period of time and was a huge interruption in service. Jobvite however has been beyond perfect. They stay on top of and in many cases ahead of any technical issues that may arise. If you are wanting to kick up your recruitment efforts a lot and automate some processes without sacrificing quality in the candidate experience - then Jobvite is for you. It's a significant Return on Investment - I guarantee.

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

They are helping us to be more strategic in how we source and engage with future candidates - something we were unable to do before Jobvite. Candidates are constantly telling us we get it right in comparison to other organizations in which they interact.They are helping us make more informed and educated decisions in terms of Data Analytics and being able to strategically plan where we want to go next as well as keeping our finger on the pulse of the organization. They are helping us to ensure a positive candidate experience from beginning to end.

"Great hiring workflow tool"

What do you like best?

The thing i like best about Jobvite is the flow of steps it walks you through when interviewing a candidate. The tools not only allow you to stay organized with each candidate and each step in the process, but also make it simple to move a candidate through.

What do you dislike?

One of the challenges i have with the site is the meeting scheduler. I am in a different time zone than my corporate office and that makes using this part of the site a challenge.

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

One of the problems we had before using jobvite was the interview process took entirely too long. No one was notified when a candidate had been interviewed and this caused the next steps in the process to be delayed. As a result of Jobvites work flow, we have speed the interview process up significantly.

"Good team to work with"

What do you like best?

Jobvite team is very talented and always responsive. Whenever we ask any questions or concerns, they always acknowledge in a day or so with proper justifications. I like their responsiveness and brief answering pattern for any concerns.

Jobvite is very easy to use except "Admin" section. There is a feature called "Custom fields", that can be improved with more advanced features.

API integration is best part of this tool, User can integrate Jobvite with any 3rd party website with very minimal time. Their documentation is also very detailed oriented.

What do you dislike?

Nothing specific is disliking about this talented team.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is easy to use, APIs are easy to consume to integrate with 3rd party. Admin section can be improved more (Specifically custom fields)

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

I am working as a technical lead in my company. We are using Jobvite for our requisitions openings and will consume their APIs to get the job details on our website.

From the HR point of view, i have very limited use but while integrating the tool with our website, i have learnt many stuffs from the product.

""Jobvite Hire is proficient and simple to utilize""

What do you like best?

I like that Jobvite has the choice of giving work offices a chance to present occupations on 15,000 sheets with a single tick. You can likewise post on 300 or more internet based life systems. Jobvite likewise works flawlessly on cell phones. I like most is the Continuous Candidate Engagement which is a competitor driven selecting model that connects with hopefuls at the opportune time and in the correct way.

What do you dislike?

I detest literally nothing about Jobvite in light of the fact that it has everything enlisting groups or individual occupation searchers need. The one figure I would state that I do loathe is the valuing for people since it is to some degree costly particularly in the event that they just need assistance being enlisted by a couple of organizations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I prescribe Jobvite to both individual occupation searchers and work offices. This site has such a great amount to offer and it is incredibly simple to utilize. The content enlisting highlight is useful and clear as crystal. The highlights execute chatbots, envoy and Jobvite Text. It enables spotters to connect more competitors, all the more successfully and all the more rapidly. It likewise encourages singular occupation searchers to connect with the spotters all the more viably and rapidly and you will never botch a meeting chance.

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

The business issues that I have illuminated with Jobvite is the personal investigations. The advantages I understood is the formation of promoting ventures and pre-screening shapes. Alternate advantages I like by and by are the social enrolling capacities, portable enhanced marked profession locales, a selecting marking arrangement, on-request video screening, progressed investigation, on boarding, and consistent mix with other HR frameworks.

"Jobvite is user friendly!!"

What do you like best?

The fact we can review and create workflows for each one of our recruiting processes and add as many managers as we can.

What do you dislike?

Messages can only be sent to candidates. They should be allowed between everyone including cc and bcc others as well, instead of using only notes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a platform useful, if you dont take the time to make it work it wont be useful.

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

The reports and number of applicants is easily visible to follow up our roles and applicants. Allows you to save feedbacks. Jobvite can be customized, it needs love/time and dedication for the tool to be as efficient as possible for your company.

"A quick and convenient way to find a job/employee"

What do you like best?

From the employer standpoint, Jobvite provides a way to compile all of those vital questions to secure an employee that is everything needed to fill whatever position is open. This site is extremely user friendly and makes both finding the perfect job AND employee a breeze!

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. Maybe provide more ways for employers & candidates to communicate. Like a chat option.

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

As part of a fairly large company, communication between locations and departments has greatly improved! Everyone is able to view potential candidates and share opinions quickly and remotely from just about anywhere, so that the best decisions are made for our brand.

"Jobvite Review"

What do you like best?

I love the functionality of Jobvite- it's very easy to use on both the candidate and employer side. Jobvite is extremely easy to customize and they are very flexible with any add-ons that you want to include, especially with other companies. Additionally, I love that all of an applications for the company from a specific candidate can be viewed so you know what status they are in at any given time.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that offers for a class of 10+ candidates is difficult in Jobvite, especially when each candidate requires a different budget line number. What I've started to do for any large classes that I am extending offers to is to simply use a different offer letter and send it through Jobvite to eliminate re-creating the whole offer letter for each candidate.

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

Jobvite is used as our ATS.

"The ATS Benchmark"

What do you like best?

Jobvite is a world class applicant tracking system. It feels like it was designed by a recruiter, and processes make sense. Calendar integration makes life tremendously easier for the recruiter. There is a great deal of control available on the application that allows you to customize it to fit your internal processes. The flexibility is fantastic.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to do a little more in the ad space as far as formatting with style sheets and other slightly more advanced HTML/CSS. Not everyone might have this skill or resource, but for those that do it could really be an advantage.

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

All of the needs around tracking applicants, managing interviews, feedback loops, and compliance. We're a little early in our roll out, but we will be realizing large gains in interview feedback and streamlined on-boarding very soon.

"Jobvite Review November 2018"

What do you like best?

The system is quite easy to navigate for new users.

I'm a big fan of the dashboard as it gives me a clear snapshot of what's going on with my reqs, interviews occurring, who I need to follow up with on feedback etc.

I also like how I can create frequent job pushes to my networks.

What do you dislike?

Working on the backend is not the easiest at times. I've had quite a bit of difficulty this year with one of the workflow steps, messaging and attachments, which I tirelessly tried to rectify but was unable to. I contacted support and didn't hear back from them for months.

The reporting feature can also be tricky.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The initial individual that I chatted with was fine, but when it went to the investigation stage, there was silence for months. We were left with this problem for months without any solution.

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

It's an all-encompassing ATS for hiring for our company in all our locations. We use it to store all our candidate information, schedule, and generate offer letters.

"The best platform to improve our company's hiring needs!"

What do you like best?

The communication with our direct contact has been amazing, They are always an email or a call away and respond very quickly to any of our concerns. I love that the platform can be customized to our needs. The best part is that there is a trail for every applicant. You can see when a candidate has received emails from us, when a hiring manager has reviewed them, their current status, and the positions the candidate has applied.

What do you dislike?

With the ability of the customization you can do comes a lot of work on your part. It is is great application system but building the system on the back end can be time consuming for two months and work. It takes dedication but once it's done it is a great system. I just wish it wasn't as complicated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great product! You definitely need to dedicate your time to building the platform for your company and may be challenging at times trying to get the right thing, BUT it is worth it. Definitely have two or three people be a part of the implementation process in case someone leaves/backup. Our career site is looking amazing so far with the Branding part.

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

We are solving lots of business problems with Jobvite. We have had lots of technical difficulties with applicants not being able to submit their application online and when we call in for help they do not know what could be wrong and only offer a solution of using a different web browser. We are now able to schedule interviews online and have a trail of all communication and information of the applicant. All these are great benefits.

"A Solid ATS!"

What do you like best?

I find Jobvite very easy to use. It provides me exactly what I need as a hiring manager, with ease of use. mobile app makes it easy to browse active candidates. Being able to share requisitions to social channels is great and takes almost no effort.

What do you dislike?

I find the mobile app is still lacking a bit. I am a heavy mobile person and wish I was able to do more. Example, browsing past candidates is not possible and is something that has come up before. I have wanted to look at a past candidate to see fi they may be relevant now for a coming position.

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

I use this purely as a hiring manager. Being able to post requisitions and browse candidates on the go helps we execute my hiring while I'm on the road.

"Great experience!"

What do you like best?

How integrated everything is, ease of use, smooth operating platform, social media integration.

What do you dislike?

The way it pushes job ads out to job boards is not the best. They primarily use Jobtarget as a 3rd party service linked to Jobvite but should just dump them and go in-house or buy Jobtarget and make it as great as Jobvite!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ask lots of questions and make sure you tell them everything about your needs and the way you operate to avoid implementation issues. They are a solid company, however, we had a special situation that they had a hard time finding the right solution for. A solution was found after several months of back and fourth and is now working great!

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

Organizing a global recruiting strategy/process for a 1,200 employee national company. The biggest benefit is creating applicant pools for each position in each region for each city and location as well as now having analytical data to show us what is really happening as a company in regards to our hiring process.

"Not Intuitive Enough to Compete"

What do you like best?

Jobvite is a powerful tool that allows for collaboration and automation of the recruiting process. Once it's setup, it can save you a lot of time. Especially like that it captures email correspondence for. Overall seems to integrate well with calendars, email, etc.

What do you dislike?

Some of it's features just seem to lack common sense design. Notes on a candidate can get saved in several different places, depending on whether they classify it as an evaluation, a note, a post, etc. Not every recruiter handles it the same way, so information can get scattered all over a record. Some info should be viewable on each tab, such as email. My biggest problem is the way they classify candidates and Reqs so differently, that it is hard to just view an open req and see everyone in process. Everything seems driven by pre-built queries, but once you open one query, you have to start the process over to look at another group. These are time wasting defects that remind me of online library catalogues from 15 years ago. Their competitors have figured this out, so I'm not sure why they haven't.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are several better ATS Systems out there that are just as powerful, and much more intuitive.

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

Automated recruiting processes and capturing feedback. Less of a burden on the recruiting team for dealing with scheduling, standard email contacts, managing applications, etc. No duplication of efforts as most info is captured directly by the system.

"Fantastic ATS platform"

What do you like best?

As a recruiter the level of customisation, whether that be evaluation forms, careers site or analytical reporting is great. For our Hiring Managers the platform is easy to use, they can even review candidates via Jobvite's iOS or Android app!

What do you dislike?

Customisation is great but it can take time to learn the back-end of the system and become fluent in the extensive admin settings. Luckily Jobvite has excellent customer support if you do need help.

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

Recent GDPR regulation was made a lot easier with Jobvite and the systems and documentation they put in place.

"Jobvite review"

What do you like best?

I like how it can integrate with social media platforms easily. the email feature through jobvite that synches to your email is nice also

What do you dislike?

the layout and interface can be confusing and not very intuitive. it is also to difficult to manage candidates with multiple profiles and applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you ask lots and lots of questions during implementation. Things will definitely come up still as you are using it but it can take some time getting used to navigating the product

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

jobvite solved the business problem of keeping all of our candidates in one place to stay more compliant. prior to this we did not have an applicant tracking system. this has helped us to stay more on top of candidates from the past

"Jobvite Review"

What do you like best?

Jobvite has a great user interface and easy to navigate pages. The do a great job at organizing information and making the recruitment process easier. They also have 24/7 support, which is a market differentiation. Overall, Jobvite has a great platform and will grow to be a leader soon enough.

What do you dislike?

Their reporting needs to get better at being more customized and user roles need to be easier to provide. Also, more support on their Engage products would be better. Still, much better than that competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would make sure that all stakeholders are involved in the implementation portion of the system.

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

We are currently using the system to make hiring easier for job managers and everyone involved. We are also solving our time to hire problem by utilizing the tools they have to make the process seamless.

"When Jobvite functions as it should, it is excellent for what we need. "

What do you like best?

We have a slightly different process from the typical corporate recruiting model. Jobvite allows us to customize and configure workflows and it is the only ATS that we have found that allows us to do that. We didn't have to adapt our process too much to the tool. The tool is flexible enough to allow for creative process and thought.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it doesn't work. New features are added and the testing doesn't seem to be thorough enough before roll out and it causes things to break.

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

We contact a lot of people and we love that we can track all touch points. It's one tool that allows us to store and track all of our recruiting activities.

"Great ATS"

What do you like best?

I have used larger Applicant Tracking Systems in the past that are hard to navigate, customize and overall just not very user friendly. Jobvite provides a great UX for both the applicant and internal users. You are able to customize most of what you'd like yourself, quickly. You can easily set up reporting (limited for onboarding though). We have a Customer Success Manager that is always available to assist when needed.

What do you dislike?

It isn't an HRIS, so you lose some functionality that a shared system would provide. There is also limited reporting for Jobvite Onboard.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

none

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

We use Jobvite for hiring purposes. I utilize the reporting heavily to pull the data that I need to tell our story to leadership and make critical recruiting decisions.

"Intuitive, User-Friendly, Hard to Mess Things Up"

What do you like best?

This will sound odd, but I enjoy that it takes a couple of clicks to do something (like reject a candidate). In recruiting, we live in fear of sending a candidate something wrong or telling them something that is meant for someone else, so I enjoy that there are some protections built in.

What do you dislike?

The system has some funny glitches like applying previous search filters to a search when you start a new one in a separate box and running slowly sometimes, but I'm extremely happy.

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

Jobvite helps us screen candidates quickly and effectively. We are able to move through the process so much more quickly and the reporting functions allow us to pull the data in a much better way.

"Couldn't be happier!"

What do you like best?

Jobvite listens. They say they care - and they actually do. They actually implement - on a reasonable timeline - system improvements that their clients need.

What do you dislike?

This is hard to say. The system is intuitive, which means the HR team doesn't have to invest a lot of time in training hiring managers.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You'll have a great experience. The Jobvite implementation team takes great care of their customers, making sure you're able to use the product as you intend. You're transitioned well to the customer care side of their business - where they really do care to help your recruiting team be successful. I truly believe Jobvite is in the business of helping our business succeed.

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

We've increased the number of applications and streamlined our recruiting process. We reach more prospective candidates - and to have our application count increase by 25% in a tight labor market is a big deal.

"JobVite is a great ATS system, we implemented it last year Oct 2017 from our legacy system"

What do you like best?

Calendar integrations for scheduling candidate interviews, features like pushing out JobVites to all our social sites automatically when a job gets posted, pushing out jobs to the free sites and integration with Dice. Also - the customer service - support line is fantastic. The customer service with any issues is thorough, the people are friendly, patient and knowledgeable about their product, i.e JobVite!

What do you dislike?

The Admin "Super User" is great, but the functionalities within the system can be very confusing when it comes to customizing or making configuration changes.

Plus the reporting function is very very confusing - for any reports. I have tried several times to create custom reports. It's just not user friendly and has too many boxes - like = > < for dates, etc. I don't remember math from 4th grade! Maybe it's just me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When doing the initial implementation - make sure you have a technical person involved and not just the main users of the ATS - to create the best paths, configurations for your process.

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

1) Business Problem: time-consuming scheduling interviews back and forth with people, it can all be done within the system, saving time cutting and pasting candidate and HM conversations/documentation.

2) The evaluation forms helped us solve the business problem of getting the HMs to give us feedback after the interview.

"Jobvite is a Breath of Fresh Air"

What do you like best?

* We came from a horrible ATS, so Jobvite has really been a breath of fresh air to us.

* Very easy to navigate

* User friendly and intuitive

* Quickest implementation I've personally experienced in an ATS (< 1 month for us)

* Innovative products and feature updates monthly. I actually look forward to the beginning of each month when new features are implemented.

* Monthly product release webinars with two awesome trainers. I met them at a Jobvite conference, so it's fun to attend these webinars and know exactly who I'm listening to.

* Interactive help easily accessed with just a click of a mouse.

* Ability to chat with Tech Support when needed.

* Mobile Friendly.

* And so much more!

What do you dislike?

* I wish there was HTML editing on communication templates so we could brand and insert links, but I hear that's coming this year.

* The mobile app seems very basic. I'm hoping that more functionality will be coming soon to the app to mirror more what my experience using their web based system.

* The field for editing the job description on the requisition is very small. It would be nice if it were expanded more than a little square.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I believe Jobvite is a very competitive ATS on the market today. We're really happy that we made the switch to Jobvite.

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

* We were previously using several systems. Jobvite had all packaged in one.

* We needed a more mobile friendly career site. Jobvite was our solution.

* We needed a user friendly ATS that our managers could use. Jobvite alleviated the stress and frustrations our hiring team previously experienced with our old ATS.

"Awesome capabilities. Not intuitive for setting up."

What do you like best?

It is really easy to use and follow as a user. The communication functionality internally and externally is great. The customer service is great.

What do you dislike?

Getting it setup is not easy. I am having to redo our workflows and it is not intuitive to do at all. The new reporting is ok, but again, difficult to set up. Blind postings is not an option which we need frequently. There is no way to track cost per hire. Careers page set up is horrible (people can't even see all of our current open reqs).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Setup is difficult (especially if you are trying to make changes)

2. Social sharing options with publisher is great if you can get people to use it..

3. Jobvite Engage is great if you have someone that can dedicate the time to learn how to use it.

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

Recruiting for multiple hiring managers across many markets for positions related to property management.

"Great Applicant Tracking System!"

What do you like best?

I think that JobVite's customer service is exceptional. I appreciate that they typically respond very quickly and then send you surveys afterwards to track how efficient their support system is. I also like how their Engage system works so I can reach out to my LinkedIn community so easily that I don't even have to think about it!

What do you dislike?

I think that there are some limitations, which I know they are working on. I have had some difficulties with their Reports section and think that this could be more user friendly and improved upon.

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

JobVite is great for applicant tracking, posting jobs, and also advertising jobs through their Engage platform.

"Resourceful, with a few challenges"

What do you like best?

You can do a ton with data and hiring results. You can customize the system to work for you in a variety of different ways. Additionally, our account manager is extremely responsive and always helps me solve for any adjustments we'd like to do. I love the customization of widgets and the new Analytics dashboard.

What do you dislike?

Updating one customization sometimes has unintended, and somewhat illogical effects. Additionally, the data pulls can be finicky.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sit with an account manager to discuss all of the uses and options.

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

Jobvite lets us manage lots of applicants for roles at 18 different campuses. Our hiring process is complex and we've been able to shift much of our communication and scheduling to Jobvite's systems.

"Best ATS that I've ever used "

What do you like best?

I haven't gone through much formal training with Jobvite because I came into a company with tons of vacant positions and Jobvite was already implemented. I learned on the fly in less than a day. I lean on their support probably more than I should, but the customer support I receive always blows me away. For example, my last dealing with their support team was to pull some 2016 data that wasn't on their standard reports. I entered a ticket on Friday afternoon and was surprised to see receive a response on a Sunday with the information that I needed which allowed present the information Monday morning ahead of schedule.

What do you dislike?

Posting jobs to multiple job boards from Jobvite is not working out as expected.

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

Communication with hiring managers through the jobvite system is really easy. Jobvite is our system of record and it's easy to see any historic data when we re-visit a candidate who we previously interviewed or spoke with.

"Best ATS I've used in years!"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the all-in-one capability. What I mean by that is being able to schedule interviews and communicate with applicants and manager via the system. The last ATS we used it was so hard to configure all of that and it was hard to track the information each candidate, but Jobvite has made it so easy.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the complexity of setting up the interview templates. I would find it much easy if we were able to edit it freely. I've had to do some training to other admins and I feel that this is the hardest part to explain/train on.

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

Mostly scheduling, communication, and transparency. We have Jobvite set up with our Google Calendars, so it syncs very well. Communication with managers on candidate activity has improved. I think we have benefited a lot from the transparency of the system. Managers are able to see candidates and evals, which makes our process much smoother.

"Excellent system for ATS and sourcing"

What do you like best?

Easy to use in general. The dashboard is great and the collection of content on the candidates pages is just what we need.

What do you dislike?

I'd love to see more ability to customize evaluations and a better mobile experience. It would be nice to have a better way to house information we only want some people on our team to see, such as compensation information. Right now, it's a hidden field for anyone other than admins but that is just a work around. It'd be better to have it as a section of the candidate page.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great system that is easy to use. The price is reasonable. If you don't need a super system, which is really more right for larger companies, then this might be perfect.

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

We needed a way to collect our candidates AND be able to report on our work. Our previous platform didn't have reporting capabilities outside the canned reports, which were insufficient for us. We also needed better workflows for our team. We aren't a "normal" recruiting team because we use all our employees to conduct interviews and hiring is a collaborative process. We now are able to run reports and hand off candidates well between interviewers over time.

"User friendly and easy to use"

What do you like best?

That I can send bulk messages, auto reject candidates who don't match the requirements, use publisher to increase employer branding and job marketing with 800 internal employees.

What do you dislike?

The reporting that we've saved sometimes screws up and Jobvite takes weeks to repair them :'(

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mainly - use publisher, and use the preliminary questions to reject irrelevant candidates so the recruiters and Hiring Managers are spending their time going through most relevant candidates

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

Mainly reporting recruitment analytics. Using Jobvite to find out what are recruitment time is, what are our best avenues of Job Marketing, where should we spend more money on, which Hiring Manager is most involved with recruitment, etc.

"Excellent ATS"

What do you like best?

The increase in candidate flow. Since adopting Jobvite, we saw a year over year increase in applicants of 62%! This way exceeded our expectations.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really, Jobvite exceeded our expectations and is a huge improvement over our prior ATS,

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a best of breed option at a competitive price, Jobvite makes perfect sense.

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

We are attracting more applicants then ever before leading to less vacancies and lower time to fill.

"Jobvite - ATS Review"

What do you like best?

Usability and customization. The ats is incredibly easy to use and requires minimal training. It's also incredibly customizeable. I can program standard interview questions for each requisition my HMs can access via the evaluation link. Helps to demonstrate fair hiring.

What do you dislike?

I wish the search feature was a little more built out. I'd like to be able to search for candidates using multiple collections. For example, I would love to pull all candidates who have the 'Entry Level' and 'Account Managment' tag.

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

Trying to keep a network of talent. With jobvite collections, I'm able to access a list of qualified candidates easily and maintain relationships with them.

"Easy learn platform "

What do you like best?

Reporting to track the different stages and performance of my team

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we can not connect JV with local job boards so we are losing data and we need to do manual work. Also, in job fairs, there is not a way in which we can import the database to track the candidate status.

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

Organization problems were mostly solved, we can adapt the platform with actual stages.

"A Connected ATS"

What do you like best?

The feature that allows you to see candidate's LinkedIn page directly from JobVIte is incredibly time saving. It is great to also know immediately from LinkedIn if a candidate is already in JobVite. Saves time and I no longer have to keep multiple tabs open while searching.

What do you dislike?

There is a delay with LinkedIn pairing to JobVite. Also a delay if working from LinkedIn... the "In JobVite" feature often takes time to appear. We should have a way of using different screening evaluations for different stages in our interview process. My technical screener questionaire should not be the same as my recruiter questionaire.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have multiple remote jobs, may want to rethink. If you have multiple roles that are similar and social media helos recruit, definitely use! JobVite does not currently have a way to differentiate your evaluations. I.E. if you have evaluations that are specific to each stage (if your technical screening evaluation to look different from recruiter screening).

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

Repetative candidate look ups, which saves us itme

"Jobvite is Da Bomb"

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Jobvite is the way it makes me look like a Rockstar Recruiter. Managing my req's and candidates is so easy with Jobvite! Also, any time I have a question or need assistance, help is just a click away!

What do you dislike?

I would love to be able to add some color and design to make Jobvite look like my own personal software.

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

Business problems: Holding Hiring Managers accountable

Benefits: real-time tracking of actions and notes/messages

"Jobvite has streamlined our process!"

What do you like best?

All the candidates information in in one place & everyone involved in the process (Recruiting, Hiring Manager, Director & HR) all have instant access to the candidate & what step in the process they are at.

What do you dislike?

Requisition process. Each position has an external posting. Then, a rec. has to be created for each recruiter assigned & another for each hiring manager. So, for one open position, 10 recruiters in the recruiting department and 12 hiring managers there ends up being 121 open requisitions.

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

Solving the issue of tracking candidates and information sharing between 3 departments for each candidate.

Benefits are streamlined process & information at the finger tips of everyone involved.

"Staffing Coordinator Review"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, and tools for learning. Frequent updates and ease of moving into new interfaces. In fact, rarely did I have to review update videos to continue effectively using jobvite. I especially appreciate the ability to interact between candidate, hiring manager, recruiting agency and/or recruiter through email as well as the content of communication remaining permanent record. Customer service is excellent.

What do you dislike?

Custom reports can be difficult at times and require several attempts before getting it right. Can not print comments. Can not print detailed interview summaries with exact dates and times.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool.

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

Jobvite has allowed for my company to keep extremely accurate real time and historical data on candidate, hiring manager and recruiter in activity throughout the entire hire/interview/review process. Also easy access to historical data via search and reports.

"Jobvite helps manage hiring, but is not the best ATS out there"

What do you like best?

I like that it's easy to search for candidates and add and edit requisitions

Easy to post to different channels and job boards

Recruiters can have their own log in

What do you dislike?

It's not a user friendly interface. Technology and system seems very outdated and needs an upgrade. It's not easy to get help with you have an issue - no live chat feature. There are some limitations to the platform and it can be hard to navigate if you aren't the main administrator/user.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I used Jobvite over a year ago and switched to Greenhouse - they may have made technology improvements that I am not aware of.

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

Jobvite makes it easier to manage and streamline hiring which is necessary when you are hiring for multiple roles and have a lot of candidates in play. It helps keep everything organized and is a good main point for all hiring info and data.

"Good ATS, sometimes overly complicated."

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed working with the implementation team, as well as the ability for the product to push notifications to social media sites. Being able to share posts with friends across platforms was awesome. I also enjoyed the interface between jobvite and linkedin and the ease of moving sourced candidates between the two.

What do you dislike?

I disliked how complicated the system could be at times. We are able to get the entire organization using Jobvite in some capacity -- others outside of Recruiting and HR were able to use the platform to share open roles with their social media networks -- but it made training more difficult. I think also building out individual platforms for campus events, etc was interesting but could become overly difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Jobvite is a very full service ATS, so if you are going from nothing to Jobvite it may feel like you are going from 0 to 60 incredibly fast. I would also consider if you need the entire firm to be pushing notifications, or just one user. There are a ton of very interesting modules that can be turned off and on based on the organizations needs, so that is another thing to consider. Overall, Jobvite might have a semi-steep learning curve, but it is incredibly user friendly post training and really can do quite a few things for your organization in the candidate experience department.

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

I think that for us, moving from a very manual process of getting applications -- literally we had an email folder where applicants collected -- to as full service of a platform as Jobvite is allowed us to report on metrics, not lose candidates, and improve out candidate experience ten fold.

"Great ATS/Onboarding Option for Small(ish) Companies!"

What do you like best?

Jobvite Customer Service is great. All reps are organized, knowledgeable and have a solid sense of urgency. The software itself has flexible customization, intuitive features and is very user friendly from an Admin perspective. Jobvite releases updates regularly (almost monthly) and has great resources available for learning, practicing the new functions. Overall, we are very happy customers!

What do you dislike?

You cannot restrict access per user for their Onboarding platform, which poses a huge problem. We have found a work-around, but this feature definitely could use improvements. There is also no integration with the I-9 Vendor they set you up with (I-9 Advantage).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Works great for our size company (700 employees), but not sure the capabilities for larger companies.

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

The biggest win with Jobvite is moving Onboarding to be completed and stored electronically.

What do you like best?

I like how customizable Jobvite is. I am able to make my own workflow for different types of requisitions and roles.

What do you dislike?

They have been crashing a lot over the past few months. It is a struggle to do my job without the system, so when it is down, I can't do much work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Work closely with your account manager, as they are very helpful!

"I manage scheduling interviews and requisitions"

What do you like best?

Scheduling interviews. It is seamless and easy, especially with the integration of Google calendars.

What do you dislike?

The Admin functions are not user friendly. Much of what I look for - email templates for interviews are buried.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Jobvite provides an easy and seamless process for scheduling interviews, offer generation, and managing requisitions. It is not as cumbersome as other ATS systems we have explored.

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

"Decent ATS, but difficult to use"

What do you like best?

Jobvite is a decent ATS and it is easy for me to track candidates and add notes to each stage that they go through during our recruitment process.

What do you dislike?

Jobvite tends to be tempermental. It runs slow at times, pulling data is difficult from the site and they have too many "Candidate Flow" options, making it a messy ATS.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Account Managers are able to help create aesthetically pleasing web or email campaigns for jobvite. Pretty helpful since Jobvite will only let users create very basic campaigns.

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

Jobvite is very efficient at keeping candidate info in a easy searchable format, so it gives users a good opportunity to reach out to candidates that they may not have had contact with in awhile.
