ApplicantStack

ApplicantStack would be useful for any size business with one or a variety of openings. It is designed to handle multiple job openings over time.

Big Biller

Big Biller is well suited for pipeline maintenance and tracking. It is not as appropriate when the business is more stagnant and pipeline tracking is not necessary.

Pros

  • The reports are particularly helpful. For the first few years, I didn't use the reports simply because we transitioned from paper applications and we were still learning about the online process. Now we review them monthly to see where any inefficiencies lie.
  • We have every application that has ever been submitted to our organization in the online database. If someone reapplies, we can look back and see the reasons we didn't pursue them. This does require us to make good notes to be able to look back on, which is a good practice regardless. Sometimes we are able to take a second look at someone if it was something like limited availability that took them out of the running initially versus a personality issue.
  • Simply put, the whole premise of the site is valuable. Being able to capture applications online, when that is how most people find us, is crucial.

  • Clarity- the software is very user friendly and it does not take long to get used to the format and how to find exactly what you need.
  • Pipeline - as long as the software is properly utilized, it is very easy to track the status and progress of any piece of the company's pipeline.

Cons

  • I believe this stems from integration with our website, but ever since our franchisor changed the layout of our application, we have had issues with people being able to complete our application. We very recently reduced our initial application to contact information only and have seen a twofold increase in the number of completed "applications". Technological ability is not a part of the job we mainly hire for, so this has worked better for us.
  • Setting up forms on the onboarding side can be arduous, but it is done so infrequently that it's not a deterrent for us. Once you have a setup that works, you're golden. You do have to use Internet Explorer when modifying forms to be able to save changes for some reason.
  • If you don't have someone tech savvy on staff, you will need to contact ApplicantStack staff to make changes to your application. They have been very helpful for me the couple times I have needed help.

  • When you send out a mass email, you could get many emails sent back from candidates who no longer use that email. It would be nice if there was a nice quick way to edit that email or delete the profile without having to go into Big Biller and take everyone out individually because Recruiters don't have time to do that.
  • Lengthen the availability of Boolean searches, so you can narrow down your search even further.
  • Increase the mile radius that we are allowed to search for candidates.

It is not up to the recruiters to renew Big Biller. That is a decision made by higher level executives.

Alternatives Considered

Applicantstack offered a high level of customization for us, at a price point their competitors couldn't touch. While it's got some room for improvement in reporting, we've been able to fill every gap with custom programming at an incredibly reasonable rate.

It came down to which was easier to use. Big Biller has a very straightforward layout and clear instruction, I preferred to use it simply for that.

Return on Investment

  • We want to see more applications. Most months, it would be impractical to have all those papers on our recruiter's desk. I cannot imagine going back to paper after using ApplicantStack.

  • Sometimes Big Biller doesn't produce the necessary results desired but that could be because the database doesn't have enough relevant candidates.
  • Big Biller has been a good resource in finding candidates quickly and they can get back to you quickly because they get an email with a job description immediately.
  • Sometimes Big Biller doesn't have enough room to put in a lengthy Boolean search so you can't narrow down your search enough.
