Checkr
Checkr is streamlining and automating the background check process, which is a tremendous benefit for a small HR team who typically doesn't have the bandwidth to manually conduct education verifications or criminal searches, but hires in a massive scale. Checkr nicely integrates with my ATS, Payroll, and security monitoring platform for SOC 2 compliance, making things more efficient, especially with a small HR team. Ordering background checks takes only a couple of clicks.

VidCruiter
VidCruiter is best suited for those that want to be paperless and go the digital route. VidCruiter gives the option to record the live interviews so they remain on the platform if we ever need to go back to review. In my opinion there is not a scenario where this is not appropriate, because if you don't see a function of interest, VidCruiter will consider creating it or figure a way to make it happen for you

Pros
Checkr
  • The analytics section in the dashboard allows you to sort by geography and date so you fully understand where and when your applicants are applying.
  • The training resources available to employees make sure that we are fully compliant.
  • The dedicated account manager helps us through all hurdles.

VidCruiter
  • VidCruiter is my first Applicant Tracking System but it was still relatively easy to set up exactly to our needs and there was lots of support over email and the phone / internet meetings during the setup and after. It is easy to use and update too, no coding ability needed.
  • The integrated video and live interviews are unique to VidCruiter and why we chose it over competing products. They are easy to setup and use and provide the HR staff with a much more personal feeling for who the applicants are.
  • The auto rating of the applicants and their references along with the easy rating of applicant video interviews and any other data entered sorts applicants after what abilities are important to your company and makes it easy to start with the most suited candidates and work your way down.

VidCruiter
  • Humanizing the experience for applicants
  • Give more information about how the video will be used
  • Clarity on deadlines for performance task
  • The error message is vague ("Either you have withdrawn from this process or the deadline to complete this process has been reached") which one? You should know!

This is our first season of using VidCruiter or any ATS. We are very happy with the time saved and level of organization and clarity that using VidCruiter has provided. We have a ton of ideas for improvements for the next season, and the flexibility of the system, the easy setup and maintenance and the very responsive support from VidCruiter makes this easy.

It has plenty of customization that you can do to help with sending information to those who need it rather than to just one person for all things. Allowing for more workflow customization for your organization's needs.

Alternatives Considered
Checkr
We have not used any services other than Checkr. We started using Checkr over a year ago and have had no need to try other services. Checkr provides us with the services we need in an easy, complete format. Background / Criminal history checking are our primary use of Checkr and it provides these seamlessly.

We selected VidCruiter over Spark Hire mostly because of the ability to edit rubrics. In a world where equity is at the top, we must be able to rate candidates in a non-biased way and being able to edit the rubrics allows us to do so. We also through customer service was top notch at VidCruiter and decided to keep using it (we considered switching to Spark Hire at one point)

Return on Investment
Checkr
  • It is sped up our onboarding process quite a bit since background checks now happen at a pretty fast pace.
  • Integration with our ATS has also kept our workflow simple, so my team doesnt need to get training on a separate software and manage multiple logins.

VidCruiter
  • It could be a great ROI for those who are able to manage daily
  • When not in use, overall contract terms still apply.
  • Does need a good amount of time invested in using.
