ApplicantPro

ApplicantPro is well suited in a environment where an employer isn't hiring a ton of people - this is because ApplicantPro is built with some automation, but you do have to pay attention to each individual candidate.ApplicantPro would be less well suited for a company looking to hire a lot of people or a company where they want to post a ton of different jobs

Lever

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.

  • Automating scheduling of meetings based on pipeline stage across all team members
  • Automating feedback forms to make sure you get actionable feedback on each interview
  • Pipeline analytics to help identify friction and predict how many candidates you need to make a hire.

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.

  • Easybook links not compatible with google hangouts
  • Timezone issues during scheduling
  • Really bad customer support

Alternatives Considered

These two systems are similar in that they track applicants, can store offers, automate email responses and allow easy job posting. I think that PeopleSoft is a little more advanced and has more overall options/safeguards, where as ApplicantPro is still in a learning phase both within themselves and for us as a company

Return on Investment

  • There have been a few times where we have been able to catch duplicate applicants or applicants that come through different sources applying to the same job.
  • We are able to keep track of all of our offer letters in one area.
  • The automation features are useful for our company.

  • Doesn’t work: When using Easy Book Links, in the calendar invites the interviewer sees that it is a phone screen and can see the candidates phone number, however on the candidate side they see ‘Interview with Fueled’ and it is not clear that it is a phone screen. It looks more like a Google Hangout than a phone screen.
  • If a candidate is in two jobs, it is impossible to move them between different stages for each job.
  • If you reschedule a calendar invite, this change is not reflected in Lever.
  • When scheduling Google Hangout interviews, there are two calendar invites that get sent out— one between the interview manager and the interviewer and another between the interview manager and the interviewee. The interviewer and interviewee do not receive corresponding links; we have had to reschedule a handful of meetings due to the two parties being unable to meet because of this bug.
  • Security access stages don’t make sense: “Interviewers” don’t have access to feedback but the CANDIDATES CAN SEE FEEDBACK ABOUT THEIR CANDIDACY. Big no no.
  • Can’t send PDF offers
  • Feedback links do not work via easybook from time to time - our hiring managers received error 403 messages
