Likelihood to Recommend

Compas

Compas is the perfect tool to track and post jobs, also a great tool to track and follow up on candidates. It is also a great way of getting metrics for the recruiter's performance. It has to improve their payroll tools and integration. It is hard to follow up on markups and pay rates.

Eightfold

Looking at Eightfold from a holistic approach, it is an essential tool for a fast growing company (ideally Mid-Market to Enterprise) to utilize this technology. By having access and the ability to search for previous applicants or candidates through our pre-existing pool, is a game-changer. As a company continues to grow, one will need to think of different avenues to find your next batch of employees - why not start with a group that has already engaged with your brand in the past.

Pros

Compas

  • Integration with Gmail really helps us track messages between candidates and keep tabs of all our pipelines.
  • The resume parsing feature is really great and does a pretty accurate job of pulling the data from candidate resumes so that uploading new applicants is quick and easy.
  • The offer letter approval process feature that is built in is a great way for us to systemize the approval of offers and make sure it funnels into the appropriate channels.

Eightfold

  • Integration with our ATS (Greenhouse) and other social media outlets (LinkedIn)
  • Cross-functional ability to build drip campaigns and allowing the platform to do a lot of back lifting
  • Accessibility for Hiring Managers to use a portal for existing candidates

Cons

Compas

  • It doesn't allow for much control on changes that are done. All employees have access to modify other employees information, it has an audit trail and would show who made the changes and what the previous information was even if these are easily fixed situations. It has led to confusion with the misuse of some of the employees in our company.
  • It should have better integration with more payroll systems. They are currently offering some integration but it is not possible to fully integrate unless the payroll system is part of the compatible ones.
  • When a candidate applies from Indeed or any other job search engine, their resume tend to be modified and some dates get into the wrong places, so their parsing system should get some improvement, or at least allow to update the file that has been uploaded.

Eightfold

  • They could improve with integration across all features within ATS, CRMs, etc. Whenever you send out messages through Eightfold, it does not show that in other CRMs, ATS' - it pulls information from them but it does not export it back to those channels.
  • Calibration on candidate skills, profiles, education, etc. need improvement. They still pull current employees at our company and others who are in process - thus creating a lot of confusion from a Talent Acquisition side.
  • User Experience does need some additional help - but it's a work in progress.

Alternatives Considered

Compas

Compas has a cleaner interface than the other ATSs . It doesn't look clunky. That being said system is that not intuitive. But once you learn it, it works pretty well. We picked Compas because of the Gmail integration. Gmail/Google is a big part of the system we run on and having Compass feed into that [is as well].

Eightfold

We elevated both Eightfold and Entelo on the premise of looking into our past applicants/candidates and how they would help us achieve our hiring goals. They both have a great reputation and what they can do to help solve your hiring needs, but we essentially went with Eightfold because of their ability to hit our needs. Entelo was focused on utilizing their entire platform (similar to LinkedIn's strategy) on having a network. Eightfold works well by re-engaging with our current and past applicants versus going into the entire market pool.

Return on Investment

Compas

  • Having the ability to post as many ads as possible for a fixed price each month is a great way of strongly staffing without spending the extra money. We used to spend more money a month when we used to post in Zip-recruiter directly.
  • It stores a lot of good functions to make sure each employee in our branches is doing the different calls and follow-ups they need to be doing daily, and it has helped the company improve personnel performance to 30%.
  • The Company has centralized all the employees' info into one system and it allows to improve the response and the times in response.

Eightfold

  • One positive impact is re-engaging with past applicants.
  • Creating a better candidate experience by utilizing our company brand.
  • If you can look at hiring more than 10% of your workforce through this, it'll be worth the cost.
