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.

  • For job aspirants, there is room for improvement. As in, for Job alerts, SimplyHired needs to send as close a match as possible. Currently, there are cases where non-matching jobs also appear in the Job alerts that the job aspirants receive on daily/weekly basis.
  • Somehow there should be provisions for flagging the scam jobs, or reporting scam jobs, so that the flagged jobs after proper evaluation can be removed from the job lists.

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.
