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.

Freshteam

It is best for an organization with a less standard employee recruitment structure, who also have a limited need for automation. It will support all basic features, like job posting, importing candidates to the job, scheduling interviews, and assigning tasks for candidate interviews.

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.

  • Job Posting, even on our carrier's websites. Also embedding jobs in various portals.
  • Importing candidates and assigning to jobs.
  • Scheduling interviews
  • Making to-do tasks
  • Our recruitment team can make conversation with candidates directly on the platform.
  • Open dashboard which gives quick info about all the job posts.
  • Pipeline feature by which we can streamline the various steps in a recruitment.

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.

  • Pipeline features need to be improved so that we can map out our recruitment process onto the platform.
  • Can we get options for embedding a carrier's web page into our existing website, to show all of our published jobs?
  • Implementing a simple UI to push our job into third party websites, or an API which helps us find most known job portals.
  • We need some assessment features for various jobs, including mine, so it will also a necessary part of every recruitment application.

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.

We are unable to fully customize the pipeline according to our organization's needs. We are stuck and unable to show all the jobs posted to our carrier's website in one place. And we also have faced problems to make an assessment of candidates for different jobs, which helps to check multiple eligibilities of the candidate.

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.
