ApplicantStack

For small/medium companies looking to simplify and track the hiring process, Applicantstack is a well priced and feature packed alternative. Its onboarding capabilities are fantastic, in its price range it has no equal.

Recruiterbox

Well suited: If you have multiple job openings at any given time, or multiple people looking at applicants, this is a helpful tool because it's very easy to switch between openings and even assign applicants to an individual.
Less appropriate: A lot of recruiting software can be expensive, and while this is slightly on the lower end, it's still an investment. If you're a really small company with few consistent job openings, you may not need something at this level.

Pros

  • Their support is top notch.
  • Their interface is clean and easy to understand for the people in our HR department.
  • Configuration was simple enough that IT has been able to step back and let our HR team manage changes and updates to the system.

  • Easy to use and customize: Recruiterbox takes little to no training to be able to use, and it's very easy to figure out how to add postings, add steps in the recruiting process, and process through applicants.
  • Great customer service: Recruiterbox always gets back to us quickly with helpful answers that solve our issues.
  • Easy to sync with our website: We worked with our developers to make sure that our application on our site would seamlessly flow into Recruiterbox.

Cons

  • Report customization needs work, it's tough to export the data I want in a format that doesn't require extra work after an export.
  • Support is fantastic, but hard to get a hold of. Often you need to leave a message on a voicemail and get a call back.
  • There is a strong learning curve to the interface, however once you become comfortable with it.. it's very powerful.

  • Filters on candidates and openings: Sometimes it can be confusing when filters are not turned on correctly (which is very easy to miss), which means that the wrong candidate or opening results will appear.
  • Search: Sometimes candidates won't show up in a search (based on what page you're on), but there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when they do or don't show up.
  • Multiple applications (Recruiterbox calls these "copies"): While it's helpful that a little symbol will show up next to an applicant's name if they're in the system multiple times, I think there could be a better way from a UX perspective to integrate this feature, as sometimes it can be for the same position, sometimes it can be across multiple positions, and sometimes it can be over the course of a number of years.

We have not renewed our subscription for Recruiterbox. Although it is a great platform with great customer service, it does not have the functionality our company needs to be able to scale and there weren't plans to develop that functionality soon.

Recruiterbox is extremely easy to use and to learn. The only function that is difficult to use, even once you have the hang of the system, is reporting.

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.

Recruiterbox has a much nicer layout than ApplicantPro and is overall a more userfriendly product. However, Recruiterbox does not have a lot of the features that are popular among other ATS's that you see in ApplicantPro and Greenhouse (text-recruiting, background check integration, video interviewing, etc.). Greenhouse has far more features than Recruiterbox, however the pricing of Recruiterbox is hard to beat.

  • As it manages our whole on boarding process, it's eliminated lost documents and filing mistakes.
  • It's opened us up to the world of social networking based recruitment.

  • More organized tracking of our candidates. Better data on past candidates.
  • Easy to learn and easy to train hiring managers on. Less time spent training.
  • Better communication with hiring managers on if the candidate was a fit.
  • Trouble getting a hold of candidates. Poor candidate response.
