I think OpenHire is well suited for a company that doesn't have the security and compliance requirements that my previous company had. We had to pull the plug on the go live the day of because it was missing critical security features.

While OpenHire has some hiccups, it works well for our needs and is very reasonably priced. I would just like to see them improve on their reporting and support

It's very self-explanatory. Sometimes it sacrifices customizability for user-friendliness, however.

The support for Silkroad is awful. I know they are working on it and it seems to be slightly better but it's still not great. I have had multiple cases I have never heard from them on, others I have had to follow-up multiple times and one that took a year

I would have to say most Applicant Tracking Systems are very similar. I did find OpenHire easier to add managers to the system than I have in Taleo. I could easily give managers access to be included in the interview process, provide feedback, etc

  • Positive time allocation.

  • It had a great impact to the business because prior to implementing OpenHire all recruiting was done via spreadsheet and phone calls. By implementing OpenHire we were able to track candidates more effectively, collect EEO data, schedule interviews, collect feedback and manage the entire recruiting process.
  • Having an applicant tracking system great increased our efficiency in HR by allowing everyone to know exactly where we were in the recruiting process at any time.
  • Open Hire allowed us to provide better service to our managers by routing resumes more quickly and more efficiently working through the process.
