    Jobscience is a good fit for medium to large organizations, especially those who have various different lines of business and need one system to be able to handle them all. It is very difficult for me to imagine another system being able to accommodate the very different ways of doing business between our departments. Only a highly flexible system could have a chance at doing that.

    Spark Hire

    Spark Hire is well suited for the growing organization which hiring managers are always on the move. The chance of physically having an interview is less and even candidate sorting & tracking is tough. In this situation, Spark Hire is the best fit. In addition to this, when you need someone very special for a role this application will come to your help. It will ensure the best candidate is recruited as it will go under the multi layer assessment.

    Pros

    Bullhorn

    • JobScience is extremely customizable and flexible. This is a strength because you can tailor it to your workflow, rather than having to change your workflow to fit a software.
    • JobScience is the most intuitive ATS / CRM I have ever used. This is particularly important when hiring and training new employees. The faster they can come up to speed on the core software in your business, the faster they can start generating revenue.
    • JobScience has extremely powerful built in reports. I have yet to need a report that I couldn't build using the internal report wizard. It helps us understand all the numbers at the heart of our business, which is critical in decision making situations.
    • JobScience also has powerful automation components. The email alerts and automated tasks you can set up are great and boost efficiency. We use them a lot, and I suspect we may have only scratched the surface.

    Spark Hire

    • The user interface is clear and concise and not distracting. This is a pro because it allows you to focus on the interviewee and what they are saying.
    • It is easy to access interviews, watch, rewatch, etc. The entire process is just so convenient.

    Cons

    Bullhorn

    • Multiple users - when multiple users edit a page, it doesn't show that there is someone else on the page and it only lets one person edit which can cause the information to be lost.
    • Action grid - it is a helpful page to use however it is extremely slow and takes a long time to load and can be a bit finicky.
    • It's simple - this is is also a positive, but I also think there could be additional resources added to it to make it more up to date and advanced.

    Spark Hire

    • We'd like more control over certain functionalities within our APS integration.
    • We'd like more control over what actual communications are sent to our candidates.
    • We would like the ability to set a different expiration date for an interview when using our APS - right now our only choices are 7 days and 14 days.

      Spark Hire

      Spark Hire is easy to use for both us and the candidate/interviewee. There is not a huge learning curve to being able to implement the program. Additionally, our clients (who are given access to the interviews) don't find it difficult to use, and our candidates have very few problems when recording their video interviews

      Spark Hire

      I have not used the support that much with Spark Hire but it seems that there are a lot of features available for support and different resources that are provided on Spark Hire's website. For the most part, the system is very user-friendly and it's easy to navigate and figure out things on your own.

      Alternatives Considered

      Bullhorn

      We use Jobscience to add candidates, upload resumes, and have certain fields such as Name, Location, Compensation Details, Non-compete Details, Packet highlights, and of course the Resume field, all of which are required in order to create a packet to submit to our clients. These packets are created using Conga ActionGrid, so Jobscience allows us to input all the information, and it would be great if we could create a packet directly through Jobscience, but we require Conga ActionGrid, as that is then used in Adobe PDF to create the final packet.

      Spark Hire

      I can't remember the names of the other companies I reviewed but I chose Spark Hire because I could purchase the service on a monthly basis. This is an important feature for us since we're a small business.

      Return on Investment

      Bullhorn

      • It is convenient because I can see nationwide activity logged in the database from other locations in real time.
      • It's not a negative impact, just isn't as lead-generation or easy to use for candidate pool search as I would like.
