Chose Greenhouse
Greenhouse was far better for us
Chose Greenhouse
I've previous used a recruitment tool powered by Salesforce at a previous company. This tool was effective for sourcing through a resume database however not as user-friendly for managing talent pipelines. Greenhouse is one of the best recruitment tools to onboard teams onto …
Chose Greenhouse
I believe that Lever is slightly better than Greenhouse as it's more convenient and you can communicate with candidates through it. However, I do think Greenhouse is really useful and has almost all the features you may need to track candidates and job postings. My company uses …
Chose Greenhouse
The design of Greenhouse is straightforward and organized. We evaluated other applicant tracking systems recently and found them to still stand out as one of the most user-friendly. It serves many vital functions that a couple of other applicant tracking systems lacked. The …

Chose SeekOut
10 AI matching tools in the market. Must have tool in a high volume recruitment environment. Excited to see if they can merge into the internal ATS tracking world and touch through data points in the ATS. Greenhouse is lackluster in this area.
Chose SeekOut
We chose this because it was a better option, but I now in theroy feel like this was a bad choice.Luxo was more dynamic and was able to passively connect with multiple outreaches, seek out was very basic
Chose SeekOut
Linkedin Recruiter has access to candidates' most updated information and additional features that indicate candidates' likelihood of responding to an outreach. There is also the option to send bulk outreach messages and other useful organizational features in the Project …
Chose SeekOut
I used Eightfold AI back in 2016-2018 and it was pretty good. I would say SeekOut is just as good, but I liked the ATS integration that Eightfold AI provided. Not sure if SeekOut has that, but would be a great addition if they do not yet have it.
Chose SeekOut
In my opinion, Hired is not good. It has been collapsing and getting worse for years.
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut lets you focus on diversity and specific skillsets more than Linkedin Recruiter. Linkedin Recruiter has a more basic view of candidates and doesn't let you target how long they've been in a specific position - only overall years of experience. SeekOut let's you target …
Chose SeekOut
Gem, in my opinion, is an even better tool than SeekOut as it offers more capabilities. Gem lets you see the latest activities in relation to a candidate (messages, responses, etc.). SeekOut does not allow you to store information so you need to store the information related to …
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut was cheaper and better
Chose SeekOut
I like the search functionality of SeekOut better than Phenom people. Phenom People does allow more image-heavy messaging, which looks more professional.
Chose SeekOut
As I said before, SeekOut filters out the fluff and makes it much easier to recruit. Also, SeekOut does a great job of filtering for diversity and inclusion which a lot of companies are focusing on these days which made recruiting much easier and cut down the time of recruiting.
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut provides many of the same features as these other tools, but its candidate profiles are more comprehensive, and its bias mitigation features are a game changer. It also has a greater degree of accuracy in identifying candidates that are members of underrepresented …
Chose SeekOut
I would say SeekOut and Linkedin Recruiter are at the top of all applicant tracking systems. Linkedin Recruiter may have a slight upper hand in due part of its legacy, but SeekOut is its strongest contender. Where LinkedIn falls short, I think Seekout succeeds (diversity …
Chose SeekOut
I prefer SeekOut over Entelo, Entelo's AI product is obnoxious, and the pushed for us to auto-message people who are not relevant. It felt like working for the system instead of it working for us.
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut is better than a Linkedin Recruiter for the reasons previously mentioned. However, Findem may be a viable option as well. SeekOut must improve the cloning option and the Job Description option.
Chose SeekOut
I did not personally select SeekOut, nor did my team. It was selected by the global organization. The functions that were sold to us were:
The ability to create projects and save candidates
Access to candidates not on LinkedIn and hidden in other areas of the web.
Chose SeekOut
All products have their uniqueness and differentiation when it comes to features and navigation.
Chose SeekOut
The choice to use SeekOut was not mine, but based on the cost for use I believe it was a better option for our team. SeekOut allows me to use more advanced search strings to pull new candidates and also has a broader understanding of who I've spoken to before compared to LI.
Chose SeekOut
Dont remember specific names, but others we have tried were not up to par. LinkedIn recruiter would be my only one to compare which I find just as good
Chose SeekOut
We found the customer service of SeekOut to be better aligned with our company values. Also, their data and analytics was superior and, at the time, Entelo lacked the insights that would help quantify the effectiveness of the tool.
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut offers more search capability and also offers us the ability to see the same user's additional profiles such as Github. It also provides useful people insights and then allows you to search via those insights
Chose SeekOut
SeekOut is powerful in terms of generating a lot more tailored profiles that stand up to any diversity hiring initiatives and criteria the client might have. Complemented with its own outreach features, the sourcing efforts are much more seamless and intuitive; everything can …

Greenhouse Software Inc.
Well suited for Big organizations where recruitment is a daily task. Understanding of Greenhouse workings is simple and it is not difficult to train people who use it for first time. Greenhouse is less appropriate if you are looking for sharing offer letters or doing employee onboarding. Did not had a great experience in doing that

SeekOut
Diversity teams use this, and powerfilters are very helpful. When looking for volume, Seek out other terms to find relevant profiles well. For example, it might map other candidates with similar terms at the end of the pool search. Also, the bias reducer filter helps make sure there is less bias towards a hiring manager and the recruiters.

Cons
Greenhouse Software Inc.
  • Greenhouse Security is simple, but not that granular. For example, everytime new recruiter joins, we have to give them access manually one by one. There is no one click or an easy way to auto assign security unlike other systems that we use such as Workday.
  • Greenhouse reporting is very lacking. Even though we are on the highest tier, we cannot extract data through this delivered feature. For example, scorecard custom questions. We have to do this through SQL.
  • Greenhouse Audit Log is also lacking. It is not useful at all. We cannot even see what job info changed and who changed it even though we are on the highest tier now.

SeekOut
  • SeekOut needs better updates to the backend repository, LI. Several times, when pulled through, SeekOut pulled up LI profiles that were not up to date compared to when searched on LI directly.
  • It would be helpful to have better/more updated phone information. As noted in the previous screen, approx. 50% of phone contact information is spot-on, however capturing more up to date information for phone would be helpful.
  • Although picky, having different colors for screens to highlight areas would be helpful. Working late at night, which many times do, the screens are similar in color and brightness, and it would be beneficial to have more distinguishment in colors or brightness so as not to blend.

SeekOut
This platform tends to give you applicants who are not necessarily looking for new opportunities. I have had people be upset that I contacted them or sought them out on LinkedIn. This can be troublesome when the only thing I am trying to do is find qualified applicants. I need active people, who dont mind a cold call

Usability
Greenhouse Software Inc.
Greenhouse's user-friendly interface, efficient workflows, and integration capabilities with other HR tools make it a powerful tool for our company, helping us streamline our hiring and onboarding processes. With its customizable workflow and intuitive design, Greenhouse allows us to create a hiring process that suits their specific needs and requirements, without the need for extensive coding or technical expertise. Moreover, Greenhouse's integration capabilities with other HR tools enable us to centralise our hiring and onboarding data, making it easier to access and analyse applicant information, and reducing the risk of data loss or errors.

Using SeekOut is very intuitive. Lots of multi-select boxes, toggle switches, and keyword boxes. If you have any experience with LinkedIn Recruiter, SeekOut is not a far jump in learning how to use it effectively. I will say that adding candidates to projects doesn't necessarily feel like an intuitive process after you've been redirected to LinkedIn to look at a candidate's profile

Support Rating
Greenhouse Software Inc.
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.

We have not needed to get in touch with the support team during our time using SeekOut because someone else in our company takes care of that matter. Overall, we have been very satisfied with the ease of use and self-sufficiency of SeekOut and have not found the need to contact the support team.

We had an online tarining with all the recruiters. The trainer was very good, and enthusiast as well. He explained everything very detailed, showed how to search which kind of functions are in Seekout. He showed the program by using examples of search. We could ask questions at the end, and he told that we can contact him any time.

Once the licenses were purchased we were sent an email to activate our account. From there we had full access to the platform and a training was set up. Since I had used SeekOut previously I understood the dynamics of the platform and was able to use it instantly.

Tools appears very light to use. It does not take forever to load. the interface is very simple but capable, unlike many ATS's. The tools is Simple yet loaded with very useful functionalities that save a lot of time and expedites the processes. For different stakeholders, the tools works accordingly.

We selected SeekOut as an extra level of sourcing and the intention was not to use LI anymore. They do not stack up because we are able to DM candidates, or they can message us asking questions, set up screens, send resumes, etc. You can not do that on SeekOut.
