Ascentis Recruiting

Ascentis Recruiting is well suited for a small company, or a company that is rolling out their very first ATS. The system is less appropriate for mid to larger sized companies; for users/companies that have had a robust ATS in the past. The system is very limited and is not user-friendly/intuitive. Customization for offer letters is difficult. The company nickel and dimes users on any additional buy-up.

It is best for an organization with a less standard employee recruitment structure, who also have a limited need for automation. It will support all basic features, like job posting, importing candidates to the job, scheduling interviews, and assigning tasks for candidate interviews.

  • Pipeline features need to be improved so that we can map out our recruitment process onto the platform.
  • Can we get options for embedding a carrier's web page into our existing website, to show all of our published jobs?
  • Implementing a simple UI to push our job into third party websites, or an API which helps us find most known job portals.
  • We need some assessment features for various jobs, including mine, so it will also a necessary part of every recruitment application.

Alternatives Considered

Ascentis Recruiting does not even stack up against these platforms. We selected Ascentis Recruiting as it seemed to be a good system for the price point and what our organization needs were.

We are unable to fully customize the pipeline according to our organization's needs. We are stuck and unable to show all the jobs posted to our carrier's website in one place. And we also have faced problems to make an assessment of candidates for different jobs, which helps to check multiple eligibilities of the candidate.

Return on Investment

  • Negative: Users do not like the system. It is not intuitive.
  • Negative: Takes a lot of time to get candidate resumes out to hiring managers if you do not have a seat purchased for all of your hiring managers. Should be saving time for an organization but it does not.
