ApplicantPro

ApplicantPro is excellent for small and mid-sized companies that need an easy and cost-efficient way of getting their jobs posted and getting lots of applicants. It does interface with some HRIS platforms, but for most cases it may not interface with all HRIS platforms.

Breezy HR

Breezy is well suited for:
  • Companies hiring less than 5 people/month (5 is a little bit arbitrary, but I think if you're consistently hiring 5+ people, you should check out the enterprise tools).
  • Small HR teams.
  • Startups that have low hiring budgets and unpredictable growth.
Breezy isn't suited for:
  • Companies with robust HR organizations that are hiring 5+ people/month.
  • Companies hiring for technical roles (you'd be better off going with a platform that specializes in the particular skills assessments you'll want to use).

Pros

  • Allows us to involve a hiring manager or hiring committee in the selection and review process via their own logins. Easy to manage access to only the right job postings.
  • Custom (knock out) questions for each job posting. This is nice because we can get very specific as to what information we want out of an applicant. This helps in narrowing down to the final candidates.
  • Ability for teams to each rate a candidate (via 5 stars). It then takes an average which helps in selecting candidates for interviews.

  • Low-Cost: Compared to its enterprise-level alternatives, Breezy is incredibly inexpensive. There are very few cost-effective hiring softwares to choose from, and we were under the impression that we'd be spending thousands to get a system that helps us like Breezy does.
  • All in one solution: For small teams, you really only need Breezy to manage your hiring funnel.
  • Customer Support: I've chatted with customer support for everything from product troubleshooting to changing my billing structure, and they were very accommodating and resolved my issues quickly.
  • Job Board Integrations: Through Breezy, you can post to 40+ job boards (many that are totally free). We have found that we get a significant number of candidates from this with no additional money spent.

Cons

  • There are not a lot of negatives. Great ATS solution with great customer support.
  • They do have a job email notification feature for potential candidates but it only sends it out periodically. It would be nice to have more control of when the emails go out.
  • The design is improving but takes some getting used to.

  • The role and permissions definitions are relatively limited so we pretty quickly wind up having to make many people "Admin" level roles. It isn't a problem for our company, but it might be an issue for larger deployments or more complex scenarios.
  • It would be nice if the system could "poke" team members when they've got candidates lingering too long in various pipeline stages.

It's no fuss and does what we need at a very reasonable price, so I can't imagine why I'd switch.

Breezy is a very intuitive, easy-to-use piece of software. Everything's drag-and-drop interactive, the various actions and data elements are cross-linked through the application intelligently, and I didn't need to look at any documentation whatsoever to get it up and going with live listings on our site (and syndicated to Indeed, etc) within just an hour or two.

It was really easy to get up and running, and the few questions I did have were answered nearly immediately via the in-app chat.

Alternatives Considered

ApplicantPro is super user friendly and pushes out to many free job sites. ApplicantPro is also easy to train managers on and the interface makes it easy to review applications quickly.

We previously used SmartRecruiters who used to have a free or very affordable tier. They then made the business decision to drastically raise the bar on their lowest paid tier, at which point I looked for an alternative and quickly ran across Breezy on Product Hunt. For our needs, Breezy is far more affordable, has the functions we need, and I believe has better usability as well.

Return on Investment

  • We went from receiving about 10 applicants per job posting to 50-100 (depending on the job). That might sound scary but AP makes it easy to manage and select candidates for interviewing. We have a better applicant pool and better hires as a result.
  • They have a feature that posts our jobs to local universities and the state job board (which is required in our industry). This feature is huge for us and not everyone offers it.
  • Bringing in a hiring committee and involving the manager has had a very positive impact on hiring and workforce management over the last several years.

  • For our relatively simple needs, Breezy is a total no brainer given the very affordable price point and how easy it is to setup.
