Fountain

Fountain is easy to use on the front end with recruiting as well as the back end with customization around candidate profiles and portfolio management. Recruiting and onboarding have been a game-changer since utilizing Fountain. We use text messaging to help with recruitment efforts. The reports and analytics are perfect as it shows a dashboard of all our team's efforts.

Greenhouse

Greenhouse is well suited for helping with organizations looking to streamline their applicants. It gets everyone on the team on the same page and helps to streamline candidate scheduling, scorecards, and interview debriefs. It also helps frame what should be talked about in the interview from the interviewer's perspective. It is less appropriate at organizations without a lot of candidates.

Pros

Fountain

  • Various integrations with third party systems
  • Scaling and managing applicant funnels
  • Easy to navigate
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Greenhouse

  • Greenhouse job listings look neat and are very user-friendly. As an applicant, I always appreciated that Greenhouse job listings looked uniform, contained all the information I needed, and made applications simple. This is helpful on the other side of the hiring process too.
  • I really like the dashboard. It's clean and makes it super easy to make referrals, see upcoming interviews, and view/share jobs.
  • The interview scorecards are great. Thorough without taking too much time to fill out, and strikes the right balance of structure (yes/no questions, number ratings, etc.) and open-endedness (short answers).

Cons

Fountain

  • UI can be a bit chaotic
  • Integration with other platforms isn't as seamless as other platforms
  • Reporting isn't as flexible
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Greenhouse

  • Integrations/API- very limited integration capabilities due to inability to store a lot of demographic information about the job that can then be passed to an HRIS with minimal manual data entry. HR still has to key in a lot of job demographic details about new hires. It would be great if Greenhouse was able to store more of this data and pass it on to other systems via integrations.
  • Custom Reporting- our teams are often unable to report on certain data in a way needed at the company level for analysis and this leads to having to dump data into a BI tool so we can report on it in the specific way we need to.

I have never needed to call Greenhouse for support. I am not the primary account holder, nor do I use Greenhouse enough to merit calling support. I delegate that responsibility to the Recruiting team. They have never mentioned any experience with Greenhouse technical support, either bad or good. I would assume that they would tell me if the support was poor.

Alternatives Considered

Fountain

Fountain has continual upgrades and updates to help Fountain stand out against other HR platforms. It's easy to use UI helps with onboarding, recruiting, and every activity in between. There is great automation as candidates flow through the different funnels. Fountain helps us manage different applicants across different platforms in one central location.

According to the pricing and on a team review we get to know that the teams are more compatible and find greenhouse more adequate software than any other . Some more modifications like business centric recruitment process must be added to enhance the features , rest the software is doing really good and one should go for it.

Return on Investment

Fountain

  • Great central location to keep all employee training
  • Easy to organize interviewing documents
  • Structure is very intuitive

Greenhouse

  • I work at a fast-growing PR agency and we are always hiring for positions. It's often difficult to find good candidates for our niche field, and employee referrals are often the best way to get good candidates that fit within our culture. This makes it much easier to refer employees, especially when there are so many open positions.
