If you're looking for a solid applicant tracking system, I would go with SmartRecruiters. Overall, SmartRecruiters is very reliable and I've had a great experience with it. It takes some time learning the ins and outs of it, but right now we're maximizing our use of it and we're happy with how it has helped to improve the efficiency of our department. Our number of hires has increased and we're getting new hires in for training a lot faster than before. If you're looking for a great reporting program, I would not go with SmartRecruiters. At the moment, we're manually tracking the data we want to know because SmartRecruiters does not have a strong reporting feature built into their system.

The product is very easy to use. It's simple and well put together, but flexibility for customizing is lacking.

Usually, responses are answered in a quick fashion. Follow-up from company reps if it is a major issue.

We also use CareerBuilder. Several of the users on our Team, myself included, have discontinued their use of CB in favor of solely using SR.

  • Positive time allocation.

  • We've achieved a better quality of hire overall, particularly with using the compare candidate feature.
  • Time-savings for sure. With the newly released delay rejection feature, this has allowed me to keep up with candidate actions without compromising the candidate experience.
  • We've been able to make some tactical decisions with the analytics suite data which has provided a higher ROI on our recruiting ad budget.
