JazzHR

JazzHR is well suited to track candidates and organize the information that is captured in the interview process. It also is a helpful tool to capture and access information about the candidate such as contact information and resume. It helps me coordinate with colleagues the tracking and progression of a candidate through the hiring process. Most importantly, it allows me to discuss candidates by referencing my feedback and interview notes.

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.

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.

  • Job Board integration to paid job boards is not as smooth as I have been accustomed to at previous companies that utilized similar sized systems. That being said, for the investment it is definitely better than having no system at all.
  • User feedback beyond standard support has not escalation process beyond "we will consider it in the future".
  • Company website integration is basic "a-frame" with little customization.
  • Inconsistent support help. Some representatives are very helpful while others just go through the motions.

This software has helped us to overcome challenges we had with our previous applicant tracking system. I couldn't imagine any software being much easier to use and still provided all of the tools available.

Each person I've spoken to have been helpful, positive and encouraging. Once you begin using JazzHR, they have intervals in which they reach out to you to see how you're doing or if you have any questions. When you're setting up, they review what you've done and offer praise as well as suggestions on how to make it work better for you. They offer webinars and online training videos to walk you through every process.

A solutions consultant walked me through each step. It was easy. As I progressed in setting things up, their support contacted me to set a time to walk through any possible issues and make suggestions on a better way to set it up. At any time, if I had a question, they were available and there are also training documents and videos available.

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.

The tailoring option in JazzHR works the best for us, of the ones we evaluated. We looked at 10+ other products, including many that aren't listed here. Mostly newer companies that may offer some flexibility in the way we are represented when we advertise positions. And again, the affordability factor: some of the products we looked at were thousands of dollars more than JazzHR.

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.

  • Very affordable for a company our size.
  • Quick postings mean less time spend on administrative tasks.
