It is great at getting applicants to apply. The one down side is that a majority of our applicants are applying from a mobile device so they are unable to complete the entire application process. When you send them a link to complete the rest of the application from a desktop computer, many do not have access to this. Because of this, they do not answer some of the "weed out" questions that give us insight as to what type of employee they would be.

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.
Read full review Pros Automatic position posting has increased our exposure drastically as an employer. We have increased our applicant flow by over 100%. Hyrell's applicant communication features have allowed us to stay engaged with candidates during every step of the hiring process. It makes for a very professional first impression. I love that Hyrell is user-friendly. The system is incredibly easy to use. We have a high number of users throughout nine locations with varying skill levels utilizing technical applications. All of our users seemed to catch on very quickly.

Has excellent reporting on how well each email message is working. Read full review Cons The main issue I have with the system is that in order for a template update to take effect, it has to be re-posted (at least that's the process as I understand it.) For example, I have updated one of our existing job templates to include a new hard skill question. The template is posted in over 50 locations and in order for this update to go into effect, I have to manually re-post these positions which can be very time consuming. If there was a way to automatically update a posting with template changes it would be a huge help to our business. Read full review [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. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
No Issues, and again, the Hyrell folks have lived up to what they said they would do at the beginning!

Meets all expectations for application processing. Does a great job of pushing the job ad out to multiple online job boards. Provides good email alerts. Relatively easy to use even for my supervisors who are only in the system on occasion.

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!

I have never had to wait for response. Someone always speaks directly to me, sometimes more than once, and email follow-up keeps the issue in the field of vision until there is a resolution.

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...

Ask for the help you need from your account representative and technical support. They are very helpful and easy to work with.

Hyrell came up against ClearFit and
. ClearFit looked very strong, but ultimately its pay per posting model didn't provide enough cost certainty.
seems to be a strong player too. There was a lot of flash with
but the product didn't seem as complete where it mattered for my client. Hyrell was a good balance on feature set and provided good value. The client needed something that was easy to use so they could get up and running quickly. The Hyrell trial went well and the ramp up was very quick and easy. Hyrell's subscript plans fit my clients needs starting with the Solo plan (3 active jobs) and then quickly moving up to the Small Business plan (9 active jobs) after a few months once additional hiring managers came on-board.

Lever is comparable to
in its basic recruiting functions. I have found it to be WAY better than
(clunky and overly-complicated with a very dated and non-intuitive interface) and
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

Hyrell has kept us moving, tracking and hiring strong candidates, even has we have moved from hiring 1 or 2 people a month to 3 or 4 a week! Great program, good features and fantastic supportl (Thanks, Emily!!!)
Read full review Return on Investment Better Qualified Applicants: The selection tools through Hyrell help us to attract the quality applicants we seek. Greater Applicant Traffic: By utilizing all of the major job boards, we see a higher number of applicants. Retention: Because of improved quality, we tend to retain more employees. This is a HUGE benefit to our Company! Read full review 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. Read full review ScreenShots
