Likelihood to Recommend

LinkedIn Jobs

Well suited for recommending jobs that the candidate needs to further validate. Job seekers cannot trust the location of recommended jobs.
Gwyneth Iredale | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartRecruiters

I find it works really well in a medium-sized company like ours. It has truly streamlined and organized the hiring process tremendously. I find both recruiters and hiring teams have benefited greatly since implementation. The system is also extremely intuitive to use, the fact that little to no training is required for new users is a big plus in a fast-paced environment and the need for a fast hiring process.

Pros

LinkedIn Jobs

  • Candidate sourcing - LinkedIn Jobs has a lot of search parameters for sourcing candidates and makes it easy
  • Job posting - it is simple to post jobs and to copy old postings or edit current postings
  • Easy to reach out to candidates - you can set specific message templates to use to quickly and easily reach out to prospective candidates

  • I love the integration with Google calendar because everyone who is involved in the interview gets an invitation and it shows up on your calendar.
  • The use of auto-fill templates helps significantly and speeds up the time it takes to send an email to interested candidates.
  • The offer approval process is easy to edit and helps keep everyone on the same page.

Cons

LinkedIn Jobs

  • The location filter can be greatly improved. Sometimes common cities are not available.
  • The user interface managing the jobs could use some fine tuning, sometimes it can appear cluttered.
James Rodriguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartRecruiters

  • Within the job posting area, formatting or, reformatting text, can be difficult.
  • There is no use of the "back" button allowed. If you purposely, or not purposely, hit the "back" botton you will lose all of your work from that session.
  • We have encountered a problem with "evergreen" postings. We recruit for the same position title, within a large geographic area. The SmartRecruiters system starts to see multiple positions, with the same title, as spam. This results in the position not being posted. We have worked with Customer Service to resolve this "glitch" and seem to experience less of this at the current time.

Our team is currently on a free tier as we only hire a handful of people per year. With that said, I would not switch if the low usage tier was paid. We have several years of data and candidates in the system and they have continued to make the product better. I discovered SR years ago from their community management and customer services efforts, which were outstanding. They care about their users, and they're passionate about making them successful. They've definitely evolved to become more enterprise focused, but the free SmartStart versions still blows away competitors. Plus, they've got some kickass t-shirts

Because of the misinformation on job location, I give a low rating and this is the reason for my entire review.

The ease of use is a primary reason we use this tool. Our employees have a full time job and being involved in the recruiting process needs to be easy and fast so they will participate.

I have had outstanding support with them. Even though it's not as easy to pick up the phone, I do get a response and they usually try to have it resolved without escalating to another level.

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Jobs

Both are similar basic job boards. Indeed doesn't have as far of a reach or as heavy a volume of active users. A lot of it is the luck of the draw and understanding where your target audience is most apt to patronize. I do think Indeed brings less junk, but LinkedIn reaches more people.

SmartRecruiters has less features, but therefore it is easier to learn and costs less. We had a much lower participation rate from franchisees when utilizing iCIMS. iCIMS is great for those that are willing to invest the time in learning it and of course the extra money. But our franchisees (hiring managers) were not using it because it was too complex. So for us, it proved to be a poor investment. Our users vastly prefer the more user-freindly SmartRecruiters system

Return on Investment

LinkedIn Jobs

  • There were enough candidates to provide sufficient top-tier candidates.
  • There was a good means for candidates to post information about themselves and their resumes so our choice was competent and could deliver results for us.
Jay Werth | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartRecruiters

  • We've achieved a better quality of hire overall, particularly with using the compare candidate feature.
  • Time-savings for sure. With the newly released delay rejection feature, this has allowed me to keep up with candidate actions without compromising the candidate experience.
  • We've been able to make some tactical decisions with the analytics suite data which has provided a higher ROI on our recruiting ad budget.
