BambooHR

If you are managing a small/medium-sized organization with up to 500 employees, BambooHR is a great utility. It will automate the entire recruitment and selection process, make time tracking benefit administration highly efficient, and enhance the integrity of annual performance appraisals. It will eliminate nearly all kinds of unnecessary record management and paperwork. All the information about an employee can be accessed at any time of the day. However, for a large organization, the HRIS can erect virtual walls among employees and make management of human resources a daunting task for the HR manager.

ZipRecruiter comes in very handy when you need top talent from a broader geographical reach quickly and perfectly matching all your criteria. Also very suitable for small to mid-sized organisations with not so heavy talent processing due to the spamming cannot be ideal for a mass recruitment exercise as sorting through tons of resumes to discern the right ones can be overwhelming.

Pros

BambooHR

  • Helps us prepare our payroll on time and do so in an error-free manner.
  • Implements ATS in our organization and this is crucial in growing our talented workforce.
  • It's stable, and all organizations from small to mid-sized are able to use it efficiently.
Martin Oliver | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZipRecruiter

  • ZipRecruiter is very easy to use, even for those who are not tech-savvy.
  • The platform offers seamless options to mass-message out all candidates who have applied. This eliminates the time-consuming efforts to have to message out to each candidate.
  • ZipRecruiter parses and connects well with our ATS platform, which makes it easy to track information as well and manage candidate profiles.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

BambooHR

  • Some edge cases aren't as fleshed out. For example, asset inventory management isn't something BambooHR can really excel at currently.
  • Something akin to Google Forms but with the privacy protections of being already in the HRIS would be great for collecting anonymized responses.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZipRecruiter

  • Better electronic screening of applicants prior to allowing them to apply for a job (i.e. when licenses are required)
  • When cancelling they require that you call them on the phone (you can't cancel online)
  • I'd prefer that subscriptions were more targeted to my hiring needs

We have tried other software in the last year and have not found it to be comparable to Bamboo HR especially in relation to the HR functionalities such as workflows, onboarding, automation, user-friendly experience, innovation, timekeeping, and ability to integrate with other 3rd party Payroll processing software. In addition, the employee ease of access and navigation of the platform makes this software crucial within our current culture of multi-site and remote work environments.

Results. The bottom line is the results we are getting. We are seeing not only quality applications, but quality hires that can directly be tied to our use of ZipRecruiter. The ROI is second to none - a simple and easy to use tool that is driving healthcare professionals to my various clients.

ZipRecruiter is very user-friendly and is extremely reliable when searching for new talent. There are numerous features to help you when you have questions about a posting or your profile. The filtering process is awesome and you have so many ways to find the right talent with the screening questions provided by ZipRecruiter.

Yes, there is a huge team in the back of the online platform or it looks like it because I have never been left without an answer when I have a question or waiting from a response on my chat .... There must be a huge team, this is so great and I always seem to have someone that is very knowledgeable too. So many times in the past I had to leave with customer service that would connect you with someone else because of the expertise, here everyone seems to be some kind of an expert in the HR function.

I love BambooHR. Reports are easy to run and download and it usually covers any types of requests I get from the management team. You get excel or .csv downloads/reports and it is fast and simple, not too crowded so it is easy to read through. We don't integrate the tool yet but again, soon we will. we just did not had the time to utilize it yet but that's the plan.

Support is effective and responsive. During our time with BambooHR we did not experience many issues, but initial support on setup was helpful and allowed for a quick turnaround on getting started. Since then, few needs have arisen for contacting support, but I would not hesitate to do so and would recommend BambooHR based on the quality of their support team.

Have not had to utilize support recently, but in past instances they have reached out within 12 hours to help rectify any problems or answer any questions about features and functionality. The only issue I ever had with them was trying to clarify, when they previously advertised that they posted on 200+ job boards, if that meant that your job would for sure be posted on each job board. Turns out, by the way, that they only guarantee distribution, not posting

The online training team is great. Theis is so well done! very user friendly, very nice to go through. Then you get all those exemples and questions to test you and make sure you understand the training as we go along. This is a great asset from the tool, I don't think I have ever been left without understanding because there is help and additional resources to understand or extra windows that explain terms or answer Q&A.

I would say they both have a lot of strengths for sure. Workday manages data on a mass scale a little bit better in my opinion, but Bamboo HR is more user friendly and pleasing to the eyes

We also use LinkedIn currently for sourcing exempt level candidates and use them to search for candidates. We like to use ZipRecruiter as a complement to LinkedIn. We have used Indeed.com in the past but, found that sponsored jobs are not as cost effective

There is so much you can do with this platform, it is incredible and so welcoming. We don't utilize it 100% yet just because we are growing and the HR team has not been able to concentrate on other areas offered to us but but we will soon. Which is also why we got the product, specifically because what BambooHR can do to help us meet our growing business needs.

Return on Investment

BambooHR

  • There has been an excellent rate of profitability in our work season, especially thanks to the optimization of our operations through BambooHR.
  • Currently estimated gains appear to be 500%, which leaves our ROI at 4, demonstrating that the platform has a high return on investment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZipRecruiter

  • ZipRecruiter did not provide much positive impact. For sponsored posts or during our free trial, we did not receive any qualified candidates. Our ATS posts to the free ZipRecruiter board, and we have had candidates come through there, but have actually hired very few.
  • ZipRecruiter would have had a more negative impact on our ROI had we continued using the paid option. However, we felt it was not worth it and discontinued. Others may find it more beneficial, but for our hiring patterns, it wasn't necessary.
