What do you like best?

Ease of use; easy to train company employees; excellent integrated tools to manage applicant communications (from bulk rejection emailing, to adding applicants, to video screen technology, etc.); very good reporting tools built in; built-in apis with top external job boards - simple to activate; very good linked referral site for employees to use for referring candidates to requisitions; very good customer service and support from the company; and finally, very fairly priced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

More detailed/customizable reporting capabilities missing; req. timing while built into the system, is not easily obtained for a req. through the reporting system; no "Mailchimp" like capabilities in the system to reach out to prospective candidates (it can be done but challenging); no real ability to do a conceptual search or boolean search on applicant pool in your database Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Looking for a cost-effective ATS that allows us to quickly post positions, integrating with various popular job boards, incorporates technologies that allow us to better connect with and communicate with our candidate customers. And finally, a system that allows to properly disposition candidates. All that plus the ability to offer hiring managers ease of use if they wish to self-serve their talent recruiting needs. Workable has done all that and more. We have done a lot of recruiting with a very low people and $$ overhead. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Clear pipeline, intuitive design, great timeline of communication with a candidate, handy interview kits and score cards, posting to job boards and many more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some features that get introduced over the time as Add-Ons cost quite a penny, but again they bring additional value to your hiring process Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

With more and more positions to close from year to year Workable answers our hiring needs at all levels — whether it's a strategic view on how business is doing with all vacancies, structured reports, visually clear piplines, or it's an intuitive process for hiring managers when guiding candidates through stages (we love that we can customize pipelines for various posiitions as well), or sourcing and reachout to multiple candidates at a time.

We've been able to save time for our hiring managers with automated templates, video interviews, smooth integration with BambooHR when someone gets hired and many more useful features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

@mention feature , setting up interviews , chatbot feature with support technicians , thorough follow up by support technicians, ease of use , easy follow up, job posting published feature is awesome ! Evaluation on the tool is good feature. Limited user access . Jobs can be internal as well. Recruiters , managers , hr everyone likes the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Reporting feature : need more customised reports, people search : need more features like (not just the title required skill set / type of employment / no of years experience ... ) AI recruiter needs update , many are not even open in the job market. Cannot add more than 1 resume under profile, or add other documents like work permit or DL on profiles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommend workable to anyone looking for a new ATS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Talent Acquisition process runs smooth. Attention drawn to profiles by @mention feature. Recommending it for our Offshore office as well. Management likes the tool and appreciate the ease of use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Integration with background checks (we use Checkr) and recruiting platforms to post jobs to multiple job boards all at once. Very efficient in tracking the candidate throughout the process especially now that we are working remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if it integrated with our payroll software, Paylocity, to help setup candidates in the onboarding module. We have to do that manually, which is kind of a bummer since all of the information is within Workable and should be able to flow over with an API integration. But really that's just nit-picky. We are also a smaller organization so it is a bit too robust for our needs right now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We have been able to streamline our candidate process from job board posting, to first screens, all the way to sending offer letters. It has really helped keep us organized and consistent where it was up to each department before. Great tool! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The system is relatively easy to use, there's logic to the steps and the stages. Calendar invite/email features work well. Ease of shifting candidates from stages or to other Reqs is relatively easy as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few "little" things that would ne nice to haves be able to change.

I'd like to be able to update calendar/call templates, or be able to attach a document to a Requisition, not just a candidate.

Would also be nice to edit system settings so that evaluations don't also require a comment in order to be saved.

There are a few things like that that would be "nice" simple additions that would make my rating a 10. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Keeping track of candidates and requisitions has been good, also getting buy in from hiring managers to get into the system to support their hiring processes has been easier with the system than with systems i've used in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Resume/attachment dropping for immediate download and access by all parties is great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think notifications and reminders for new comments or updates in Workable could be improved. In addition to just comments sections on candidate profiles, a section exclusively for meeting invitations could be very valuable going forward. I would also like to see a chat feature something similar to Facebook Messenger or Linkedin chat if possible. There are also some bugs that could be addressed: the resume scrapping for information based on name, online profiles, social media etc. does not always work - specifically the image being pulled from online. Some of my candidates have images and some of them appear as gray silhouettes instead. My clients tend to review and interact with the candidates that have more information taken from online and tend to partially ignore the candidates whose names are pulled incorrectly and whose images are not generated correctly. As a result, this can occasionally give certain individuals an unfair advantage over other candidates which creates issues with equity. I think if I were to do it differently, all candidates would require a photo (if they have a Linkedin) and proper associated information, or alternatively none of them could to keep an even playing field. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make the most of the comments section and the resume/attachment drop feature - it's easy to miss out on aspects of the platform b/c even used in it's most basic function is particularly effective Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Through Workable I have a far more streamlined experience with my clients - transparency and easy communication channels are my highlights. I also love the secure communication between myself and my contact at our client company, whilst not allowing candidates to view certain comments or feedback unless they are allowed in certain settings.

What do you like best?

Simple, easy candidate experience in applying. Integration with HRIS, video interviews, testing. Workable seems to be constantly improving and adding features. Workable also listens to us as customers for new features and desires for product improvement. Several things we have requested have come to fruition over the last few years. Workable seems to be constantly reviewing the market and competitors to see what features are most useful and needed from customers. Our account managers have always been responsive to us and open, and willing to share feedback with the product team and set up collaborations. The self-schedule feature for interviews and phone screens is a HUGE time saver for our hiring managers and our recruiters. Many applicant tracking systems don't have that feature integrated directly into the system like Workable does. We have considered switching applicant tracking systems in the past but the self-schedule feature is a big deal for us and has contributed to us staying with Workable for the past 5 years. We have grown with Workable over the years and are excited for the features to come. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Workable lacks OFCCP compliance in resume searches, could have more robust report features. Custom reports are only available by add-on and take several days to a week or more to create. The canned reports are useful but don't cover all aspects of reporting that we require monthly, quarterly, or annually. Workable could be more robust in its account types and ability to customize certain permissions. Some of the job features aren't applicable to us and can't be manipulated to our use. We have let our account managers know about these features and some issues have been solved in the past but others still remain to date. We do believe that Workable has an interest to improve these things and anticipate integrations over the next few quarters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Candidate experience is seamless and simple. Working on other integration features, have recently integrated candidate texting. Have tested Workable integrations with testing features. Benefits of collaborative and open staff/account managers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Workable is extremely user friendly and the technology is easy to learn. At our company, hiring managers are heavily involved in the recruitment process. Workable allows the HR team to have extreme oversight over the hiring managers and the system makes it easy to stay organized. Workable is also competitively priced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Workable is extremely innovative and announces new features often; however, those new features come at an additional cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time to set it up properly for your business needs. Do not rush the process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

There are a lot of features within Workable that have helped our business solve problems. The sourced feature uses technology to source candidates that have not applied to the position, but seem to be a good fit. This allows us to have a larger candidate pool without adding additional time. The templates are also extremely useful and easy to set up. Workable comes with a slew of templates and you are able to edit and create new ones according to your business needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Having been in the talent acquisition space for nearly a decade, I've used my share of ATS platforms. Workable is by far and away the easiest system to use. The systems intuitive nature allows even the newest users to get a general understanding of the system, without having to provide a formal training - if you don't have the bandwidth. I really enjoy the social/feedback reviewing abilities as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any true dislikes in Workable. Reporting is always an area of improvement for any system but I find the reports that I do have access to in Workable are very easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're a smaller recruiting shop and need a nimble, intuitive and easy to use ATS... Workable is a wonderful choice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Time to hire. Workable has made it very easy for hiring teams to quickly review and provide feedback for candidates. This has helped me tremendously with keeping a smooth and efficient candidate/interview experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As an outsourcing business with over 100+ clients where a core part of our business is recruitment on behalf of our clients, we were looking for a platform that was easy to use, intuitive, and which our clients could be exposed to without the need for training. Workable's interface is it's strong selling point, which makes it easy to use, and extremely intuitive, meaning a client hiring manager can jump in and be effective with limited direction. It has become an integral part of our business, and a key differentiator. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to skin (brand) it ourselves! However, not really much to dislike with Workable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The learning curve is fast, so get on with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The main problem we are solving is the hiring of offshore team members for our clients around the world. Prior, everything was by email, which meant there was no central repository, and we were often lost as to what had been agreed. Workable provides us with a fantastic central repository which has become part of our business interface. We share Workable with our clients, and so it has become an essential part of our service delivery. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's boosted our team collaboration and everything is in one place for each candidate. It's easy to pull information on candidates and share it with the team. Communication with the candidates is simple and fluid. All e-mail communication with the candidate is automatically captured on the candidate's record. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pipeline customization requires the assistance from Workable staff. You can't do it on your own. However, their support staff is extraordinarily responsive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

No off-the-shelf product is going to be a 100% solution, but Workable is a great solution for our company. Working with Workable has been a great experience. They have helped us to customize our very detailed and diverse pipeline needs. Their support staff have been extremely responsive. They assisted us with great patience as we fully implemented Workable. We've been using the Premium version since April 2020. We're a very satisfied. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

One of the great features is the EEO Compliance feature. Candidates can voluntarily provide this information. I was able to pull the report on this data for our Affirmative Action Plan and it took me around five minutes to pull the report into and Excel spreadsheet, clean up the appearance, and put a filter on it for sorting. I can't imagine how long it would have taken to pull this information together if it had been manual. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

You will find a lot of more expensive solutions on the market that do not deliver the quality of service we get from Workable. At the time of purchase we reviewed a number of other big name brands and found they didn't offer everything we found here. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Having all candidates in one place is super helpful to see who is qualified and who isn't, all while keeping a log of everyone Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There shouldn't have to be a rationale required to give a candidate a thumbs down. If a candidate is not qualified then that should be enough to just give a thumbs down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Familiarize yourself with how you want to source for candidates and make sure you have other contributors so that you are not a bottleneck in the hiring work stream. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

There are a lot of unqualified candidates. If Workable good scan the resumes and match with the job descriptions, that would be super helpful. Given we haven't had a system like this prior to Workable, it definitely is a step in the right direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Seeing a timeline for each applicant and the calendar integration for sure. Makes it super simple to add in additional hiring managers and to share timelines with the Directors of unsuccessful applicants for coaching purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I find when I use the Google Calendar integration the invite is sent to the applicant but the link to the Google Chat Video conference does not appear on the recipients invite. I then have to go to my Google Calendar, delete the applicants invite and then re-add them for the link to show up on their end. I would also like the ability to share individual attached files or videos used throughout the vetting process. FOr example, if I have the applicants record a short video as a pre-screen, my HR team attaches that to the timeline but if I want to only share that video with the applicants current Director, I cannot. Instead I have to add them as a follower. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Simple, efficient, great UI, supports multiple platforms and mediums. I wish that we had switched to this platform years ago. This will help you to acquire the right person for the right role in a fair arena. Comparing skills, short listing, case studies, video screening... whatever you current process is, Workable will improve it and take stress out of your day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Efficiency and organization. Often the biggest challenge with hiring is keeping everyone's application organized to get the best possibility of an apples to apples candidate comparison. It also allows for super powerful collaboration with my HR team based on individual schedules. The application process can continue even if I'm not available.

What do you like best?

The stages of each process and that I am able to choose them. Able to tag any team member involved in the recruitment process, and also that I can see the evaluations of other team members. I really like that the candidates are able to write down like a brief resume about themselves. Looking forward to improve our internal recruitment and hiring process. Love that we can see all the resumes of every candidate and even know if they have apply to any other positions published in the past. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I havent discover how to filter by gender or salary. If its possible I would like to have a training is these parts so I can fully enjoy this platform and excel on my performance and improve the service I give to my internal and external clients. Right now I'm not disliking nothing, I'm in the process of getting to know Workable, so probably in the end I will like it and get along with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The email integration and the User Experience are really nice. I really like how easy it is to find old candidates. I also really like how you can integrate templates and change them pretty easily. I like that workable also shows you places that your candidate shows up throughout the internet. Some of the metrics, like the sourcing metric and current pipeline are very helpful.

The most helpful thing about Workable is the customer service team: They are always available to help answer questions when I have them. I have spoken to several members of the team and they always go above and beyond to help me out, even hopping on a Zoom call. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it lags and I don't like that I can't change the Workflows/Hiring Processes by myself. I also think there should be more metrics available. For example, a metric that shows you how many responses you get from sourced candidates and also shows you when candidates typically get rejected AFTER the application stage. Right now it just says "moved forward".

I also think more insight when it comes to pipeline. If they had metrics that showed comparative time to hires for similar industries or companies it would help us to be more competitive and help the market overall to give candidates a better experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great product! I think that overall it's heading in the right direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Problems solving with Workable : Super easy to find old candidates and to source through old pipelines. I like that there is a way to search through old candidates and see if they can be good for other roles.

Benefits I have Realized : Easy to see all interactions. I also love how easy it it to integrate the application questions from Workable to our career site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

When choosing what ATS to use we tried over 6 different high end ATS. At the end it was between Lever and Workable.

We went with workable since it better fit where we are as a company - experiencing high growth, volume recruitment and many new managers. We wanted a tool that accommodated our needs:

- Easy to use tool

- Great referral platform

- Easy to read and extract data

- Best customer support / CSM.

Furthermore, they are a constantly evolving tool with a very user centric focus. The product team listens and takes input from their customers and they are continuously releasing new features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- They can definitely improve the CV screening feature. When having 100+ applicants you want a tool where you with as few clicks as possible can get an overview of the CV and application. This is not the case. You have to scroll down to see the CV, the application letter is in a "text format" and not able to upload in the same way as the CV. The screening questions are at the bottom of the page as well.

- They don't have the option to schedule email send outs.

- Extra admin work when scheduling a Teams meeting since they don't have a integration to Microsoft Teams.

From what I know at least 2 of the three points are under development to be improved and implemented! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Like recruitment, when choosing a new ATS you have to set the requirements. There are so many great tools out there and it is easy to get lost in the process of picking a new one. If you are a company that is experiencing high growth and maybe even in the start of your internal TA function than this is definitely the tool to choose! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Easy to get the managers up an running with the tool.

Referrals(which are a big source of candidates for us) have increased massively.

Increase of applicants since adverts are published on several local sites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a HR personnel who looks after the full recruitment cycle for a small company, Workable helps me save tremendously and in a very professional manner:

- Sync with my company email (we use Google suite - so it's really convenient); I'm not sure for the case of private company email domains, but I do see Workable updating its integration list from time to time

- Pushing job postings and then collating all applications/ emails from 10 free websites in one place, by posting. Before I had this, we manually tracked candidates pipeline by creating shared Excel files, and constantly update status after replying candidates' emails. You can imagine the pain if you have 10 open positions at different stages, with different assessment process, and that you need to coordinate with different managers - you can handle a few but definitely it won't be scalable. Thanks to Workable, I am able to manage both recruitment and other HR functions.

- Candidate management - by matching email addresses, the platform is also able to let me know if certain candidates have applied in the past, and with a click I can the applicant's past application, including communication trail. In such cases, it gave me a side story about the candidate that doesn't appear on resume - Super helpful!

- Resume parsing - there's no guarantee it's 100% accurate, but it's pretty good so far. My previous manual Excel file system requires tons of manual data entry from candidates' resume, which feels like a waste of time many times

- They also have candidate suggestion function, where they suggest profiles that they have based on your posting. Our package has limited slots yearly so I use it when it's hard to find candidates for some niche position. I wouldn't say it's the best platform to look for such candidates - as this is definitely not Workable's strength, but it does come handy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Of course there are glitches here and there, but I would say they are performance issues and won't say there's anything I dislike about it as a platform.

One thing that irks me though: They rolled out a video interview function (which I thought was a great idea) a few months back and they offered a 3-month trial for current customers (hooray). However, when I tried it out, there was a bug and the customer support agent came in saying they're working on a resolution. More than 3 months past and I have not heard back from them since. Still not sure if it's working now, and without saying I never got to try the video interview during I do think they need to manage their support function better to tie up loose ends and not leave customers hanging. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

- Saving time on recruitment

- Managing recruitment more systematically, with more info organized and in the same space Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
