Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Freshteam

It's perfect for small teams that are not recruiting at scale, but need a more efficient process vs. Google Sheets, email, etc

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.

While Freshteam is almost as good as Recruiterbox, for a high volume recruiting environment, the free version of Freshteam won't meet your team's needs. Recruiterbox is expensive, but worth the cost for high volume recruiting environments. I previously used MightyRecruiter, but there were way too many bugs & outages/downtime. I would not recommend MightyRecruiter

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.

  • Increased number of interns we're able to hire which has really helped move the needle on special projects.
  • Decreased costs - we're using the free version.
