Bullhorn Recruitment CRM

We are trying to reach our candidates as quickly as possible to meet the needs of our clients in the most efficient way. This tool is allowing us to do just that. For example, immediately after meeting with a candidate, I am able to parse their resume and get it into the system to send out to clients. I add my notes to their profile and am all ready to go! Recording necessary information to ensure that all previous phone calls, notes, emails, are safely and accurately reported for future reference is a huge plus.

Pros

  • Makes it easy to manage job feeds.
  • Makes it easy to manage traffic acquisition from multiple publishers.
  • Easy to use reporting dashboard for you and your customers.

  • Most importantly, Bullhorn Recruitment CRM and Outlook were able to communicate, so for example, if a candidate sent a resume in an email via Outlook, we were able to directly parse the CV in Bullhorn and create the candidate's profile.
  • Another interesting feature is that we are able to parse LinkedIn profiles to get a candidate's details. This is actually interesting if you want the candidate created in Bullhorn while you wait for the actual resume. Once you get the actual CV you can directly link it to the candidate who's already created. You don't need to save the CV and then add it.
  • When it comes to client management; Bullhorn Recruitment CRM allows you to create one company and add as many contacts as you wish. You can add notes to each individual contact, create follow-up tasks and even send calendar invites via Bullhorn is you are using the email feature.

Cons

  • Need to be more open to suggestions from clients.
  • Need to get better customer service turnaround time.
  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • Some key areas of the system are not customizable, including some very basic functions that you would expect to be. The amount of times we are told by support, "this is the default method and it cannot be changed" is quite disappointing.
  • The layout / workflow in vacancies is poor and not easy to see where you are at with each vacancy.
  • The LinkedIn integration does not work very well. It does not actually cross-reference profiles in LinkedIn & Bullhorn unless a certain link is clicked in every single candidate (even if the email address matches the one in the profile's Linkedin account), so this renders the LinkedIn integration ineffective in many cases. Furthermore, the LinkedIn team information area (aka 'Team activities') in each candidate profile does not populate properly, with information missing or strange text appearing. All in all, it's a poor API.
  • The process for booking interviews is arduous. For example, when in a candidate profile and trying to make an appointment for an interview, it does not populate fields you would expect it to. You even have to find/enter the candidate as an attendee when you're already in that candidate profile! (Sending out vacancy details to candidates is just as clunky. Even from within a vacancy you have to search from within all vacancy documents to find the job spec document that you want to send).
  • The email editor is shockingly bad. It's all too easy to end up sending out client or candidate emails with mixed-up fonts, because in the editor you cannot see what's going on. Also, when adding candidate notes, it does not keep the formatting such as paragraphs, so you end up with notes that don't read particularly well.
  • The 'standard resume' templates are not great and the formatting of CVs can end up looking a bit unprofessional. You are only allowed 2 templates, which is not much good if you have clients that require you to use their own front sheets. We now do all of our CV formatting outside of Bullhorn and then import the finished files into the candidate profile.

It is not worth the man hours to fix and the stressfulness of issues. It doesn't show greatness for an ever changing environment that we have.

Bullhorn really works for me and what I do. I can move through full desk recruiting and use it to both market to clients as well as recruit candidates. Overall, it has helped to keep my business on track and to evaluate how well I am doing and to track effectively

They don't care, they want you off the phone, and you have to talk to multiple people where you repeat your problem again and again before they tell you they will call you back. They never will call you back, so you'll call the next day & repeat the cycle until you finally shame someone into fixing your problem or threaten them with legal action due to breach of contract.

Bullhorn was by far the strongest SaaS offering when we began our search in the fall of 2010 - In the selection of Bullhorn, we identified, reviewed and demoed software from 8 product vendors. Their out of the box, vanilla implementation, offered the broadest functionality that covered what we were looking for in an ATS. Bullhorn's look and feel, ease of use and workflow increased the likelihood of adoption by our employee base.

  • After the initial learning curve that your employees can expect, we've definitely seen an increase in efficiency.
  • Our touch-points and constant contact with our network has increased; the system provides task and followup reminders and the ability to send mass mailings catered to a target audience.
  • Our back-office has experienced quite a bit of downtime and frustration when on-boarding or integrating products from the Bullhorn Marketplace.
