Considered Both Products
JazzHR
Chose JazzHR
Both Greenhouse and Lever at least seemed to have great products and great teams; they simply weren't worth 2-5X the cost for us. Now, let's be clear - a platform that helps you hire the best people is a certainly worth 2-5X (or perhaps 10X) the cost. However, for most small …
Chose JazzHR
Compared with these products, Jazz shines when it comes to it's intuitive interface and ease of customization. Hands down the easiest to setup. Lever and Jobvite handle MS calendars better. Jobvite handles tools to handle high volume, but at a severe cost to usability. Green…
Chose JazzHR
JazzHR was the most user-friendly and not too robust for our small company. I also liked JazzHR's dashboard and how you can see everything on one screen. The price was also very reasonable for JazzHR where the others were very expensive.
Lever
Chose Lever
Lever is comparable to Greenhouse in its basic recruiting functions. I have found it to be WAY better than Bullhorn (clunky and overly-complicated with a very dated and non-intuitive interface) and Jazz HR (slick and pretty, but limited in its functions). The best ATS I've used …
Chose Lever
Lever is more visually intuitive. It is a faster platform since it requires less clicking around to accomplish tasks.
Chose Lever
I think Lever stacks up fairly well and is right above the midpoint. iCIMS and Greenhouse provide a larger, more Enterprise style product for huge scale, so I'd put the two of them above Lever at this time, but we chose Lever over Greenhouse for a reason. I just don't know if …

Since it allows you to tag candidates based on their level of talent or potential utility to the company, it is best used to identify the best prospects in large operations, such as multi-franchise oriented businesses that cover all kinds of sales. It can be used to make periodic assessments of the level of employee growth in certain departments, and based on the results let us know if certain employees would do better working in another type of area, so that the overall work operations are more uniform. JazzHR could excel in departments that use a high level of reporting, as its administrative tools provide high content reports with statistics on the performance of each employee or candidate at different levels.

Lever
I think Lever is great for any sized company, but especially strong for smaller, growing teams. It's a very simple system, but clean, sleek, and very useful in any scenario. They have great support whenever you need it so those with smaller HR or People teams could easily benefit from their help. Can't think of too many scenarios where Lever wouldn't be well-suited, but maybe once you grow to International growth and hiring, it may be better to have a more Enterprise style business, set up for larger scaling.

  • Great integration: Keeps a list of Outlook email communication along with LinkedIn and other data sources
  • Is fairly lively, not too much lag between screens even though it is looking through a lot of data.
  • Has excellent reporting on how well each email message is working.

Cons
employ Inc (Jobvite, JazzHR & NXTThing)
  • The integration of the other systems such as Payroll, HR systems and operations are not easy to set and not all systems are compatible.
  • Should improve compatibility with Microsoft Teams
  • Some processes require more steps and become more tedious than in other solutions

Lever
  • [In my experience,] terrible customer support - pay more to get less...
  • Integrations are spotty and can break without reason
  • Lever has so much potential, but their Roadmap is lacking in ways that will really help customers succeed
  • Focuses on the number of candidates and not the company's need to build talent in a cost effective, data driven and collaborative way
  • Overpromised and underdelivered in [the] capability of the tool. [I believe that you should] not trust your sales team.

It worked well for the majority of our needs and is still in use even though I've left the company. The Resumator was an interim solution until we found a system that integrated with all our other internal systems. However, we ended up staying with it because of ease of use

Usability

It's not a 10 due to the eTemplates. If those were less time-consuming to set up and if some common forms were available to select from already set up, then I would give it a 10.

It isn't difficult to use for the applicant processing, but [I feel] if you want to pull reports or use their tools, good luck!

Support Rating
employ Inc (Jobvite, JazzHR & NXTThing)
Each person I've spoken to have been helpful, positive and encouraging. Once you begin using JazzHR, they have intervals in which they reach out to you to see how you're doing or if you have any questions. When you're setting up, they review what you've done and offer praise as well as suggestions on how to make it work better for you. They offer webinars and online training videos to walk you through every process.

What support? - Add a ticket and get links to [I believe] their unhelpful user guide. Add a charge if you want better support - afterward just got those links faster...

A solutions consultant walked me through each step. It was easy. As I progressed in setting things up, their support contacted me to set a time to walk through any possible issues and make suggestions on a better way to set it up. At any time, if I had a question, they were available and there are also training documents and videos available.

Both Greenhouse and Lever at least seemed to have great products and great teams; they simply weren't worth 2-5X the cost for us. Now, let's be clear - a platform that helps you hire the best people is a certainly worth 2-5X (or perhaps 10X) the cost. However, for most small and medium businesses, the three platforms are very similar. Once you have ~100s of different positions or ~100,000 applicants, then a more advanced ATS could be worth the cost. For us, Jazz is excellent. We have about 8 types of roles and 250 employees, and we see the Jazz system working very well for us even as we grow to 1,000+ employees.

Lever is comparable to Greenhouse in its basic recruiting functions. I have found it to be WAY better than Bullhorn (clunky and overly-complicated with a very dated and non-intuitive interface) and Jazz HR (slick and pretty, but limited in its functions). The best ATS I've used is the proprietary tool at Meta, but alas, that tool is for internal use only

Return on Investment
employ Inc (Jobvite, JazzHR & NXTThing)
  • This cuts down immensely on staff time needed in the total recruiting process. Has probably saved at least 1/2 person.
  • Trees are being saved since we don't have to print as much! :)
  • Consistency is so important in the HR field. Jazz HR makes this easy.

Lever
  • Lever provides an enormous ROI by getting us in front of the right candidates that are going to make us more money and more successful as an org.
  • I think that both the quality and quantity of new hires has gone up ever since we started using lever and involving the entire org in the process.
  • It also saves us a lot of time because we don't need to send referrals via email, while saving/attaching resumes and such.
