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.

Cyber Recruiter

Even though there are some times where it gets really slow, or it doesn't accept certain formats of resumes, it has been working to get things done the whole entire time. It has helped us get each candidate from the pre-screening process all the way through the on-boarding/hiring process - and even to the day of orientation/first day on the job. Cyber Recruiter works well for the hiring process and all four of our sectors use it.

Pros

  • Applicant Pro has been great for our company. The ability to push the job to several free job boards (including several local options), as well as paid services, makes Applicant Pro a great bang-for-the-buck applicant tracking system (ATS).
  • The system is user friendly, which makes it easy for hiring managers to go in and go through resumes hassle free.
  • For our recruiting team, Applicant Pro provides plenty of tools tell help us be successful, such as messaging (including a built-in texting system), facilitating background checks, and other great features.

  • It is real easy to add candidates to the system and it is really easy to find candidates who are already in the system. Everyday I have to look up a candidate to send them an email confirming their interview is happening, or update their status to show they are moving forward or not moving forward.
  • It is also very easy to route resumes to either the recruiters or the hiring managers. All the hiring managers have to do once they get the email is look at the resume and then choose a status whether or not to bring them in for an interview, with maybe some feedback as to why they chose what they chose. It makes it very simple!
  • I really love the email templates that you can create in Cyber. It makes it much more simple rather than typing the same email that you have to send to candidates all the time. There are many emails that are the same format that I send out everyday, and Cyber really helps me not to make a small mistake by having those templates that you can create.

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.

  • One thing that would be really helpful is for Cyber to accept .pdf formats of resumes. Many candidates now have their resume as a pdf, not word, and it is a shame that I have to copy and paste their resume into their system, which ruins the candidates' formatted resume. If anything that is the big thing that could use a change: Cyber should accept both word docs and .pdfs
  • Sometimes Cyber gets a bit slow when I try saving a note, or send an email through Cyber. It is not often, and it does eventually go through in the end. I did check to see if it was the internet but everything else was running just fine, so I know it is Cyber when it happens. It gets stressful at times when you have a bunch of things to do in the day through Cyber, and it is acting very slow.

I only give it a 6 because there are small things that could use fixing. While it does get what we want done, there are things such as not letting us upload the pdf format... or getting really slow at times when it is trying to save. It's little things like that could be fixed, but overall the experience is pretty positive and it helps us get what we want done and efficiently.

Alternatives Considered

We are just implementing UltiPro. It has an ATS module and does a lot of things equally well and some better. Applicant Pro is probably half the cost. Also, UltiPro requires an account with eQuest to post to state job boards and local job boards, this is an added cost. It is also an added cost with AP but is very affordable. I didn't use onboarding with applicant pro because I believe it was an integration with another vendor. UltiPro is attractive because it is all one system so the applicant information flows into onboarding which flows into employee management and payroll.

For awhile we were thinking of using iCIMS, but in the end we continued using Cyber Recruiter (we had already been using it for a time). Yet in the end we chose Cyber because of it is very simple and easy to use. While it may not look very pretty or exciting, it gets the job done, makes the hiring process flow easily, and that is what we really care about.

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.

  • It has helped us have better customer service. We have been able to keep in touch with the candidates a lot easier especially using our email templates (we use that an awful lot). There are no "black holes" so to speak leaving our candidates in the dark wondering what is going on. That doesn't happen, which is great.
  • Everyone (recruiters) is on the same page. Since we can use notes when changing the status of the candidate in the system, everyone can see why that status was changed, or why we are not moving forward with a candidate. The notes are incredibly helpful for that reason.
