Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

Lever

Lever benefits companies that want to empower their in-house recruiters, talent managers, and HR professionals to use their time more effectively. It has been a perfect first ATS for my company insofar as it integrated pieces we had in place (Google forms, Google calendar, Gmail, DocuSign, Slack) to unlock their best potential. It's especially helpful in our context because each department has their own hiring managers who do not work full-time in the hiring capacity. It helps them keep the hiring process to a more manageable portion of their day.It may not get its full use at companies or in departments where hiring is not as democratic, or where more recruiters are used in a less hands-on way. For example, our engineering and sales teams rely on recruiters--and are used to maintaining infrequent conversations with them when hiring occurs. Lever does have options for providing recruiters access to the team, and keeping their candidates in the pipeline (tagged appropriately). Perhaps ultimately Lever is not appropriate for departments/companies who are adverse to technology or who do not wish to explore how their current process could be more structured

Lever

  • Centralized system for all aspects of recruiting that can be used across the company, meaning as sales managers we used it to avoid duplicate work.
  • Simple. After interviewing a candidate, I had to just click on one link where I would input all of my feedback, enter my hiring score, hit submit and I was done. I didn't have unnecessary screens to work through.
  • Referring candidates was extremely easy with the Chrome extension. You just put in a linkedin profile URL and it was done. No worrying about emails getting to the right place.
  • Very easy to go back and see feedback on past candidates.

Cons

Accurate Background

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

  • At least the way we had it set up, the feedback system was a little clunky. It was all free-form and didn't really address ensuring consistency across interviewers.

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

Lever

That's a tall order to ask. It's the latest generation ATS and seemed easier to configure than Greenhouse. SmartRecruiter didn't appear to have the reporting we wanted. In comparison to Taleo and Brassring it is superlative. It is definitely clear that they spoke to actual recruiters when they selected features and functions. That's a first!

Return on Investment

Accurate Background

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • Time - I personally recognized that I'm saving time in the total candidate evaluation process and was quicker.
  • Tracking, Tagging, Quality and Security - As the biggest advantage I see is to have all candidate information, evaluation and communication at one place.
  • Prize Structure - To have the biggest advantage out of the Lever system you have to be the full Enterprise package. At the beginning, it is too expensive and therefore I could not take out the full advantage of the system. It is important to generate a clear understanding and negotiation with Lever Sales upfront.
