Spark Hire
Spark Hire is well suited for the growing organization which hiring managers are always on the move. The chance of physically having an interview is less and even candidate sorting & tracking is tough. In this situation, Spark Hire is the best fit. In addition to this, when you need someone very special for a role this application will come to your help. It will ensure the best candidate is recruited as it will go under the multi layer assessment.

Pros
Personio
  • Allows automatic posting of job offers on different sites and portals to find the perfect candidates for available vacancies.
  • It has employee tracking tools, such as attendance and absence tracking, as well as time monitoring of working hours and overtime.
  • Payroll management is very complete and is done quickly and almost automatically, as it enters hours worked, overtime and absences, with an accurate calculation to avoid errors.

Spark Hire
  • The user interface is clear and concise and not distracting. This is a pro because it allows you to focus on the interviewee and what they are saying.
  • It is easy to access interviews, watch, rewatch, etc. The entire process is just so convenient.

Cons
Personio
  • Some processes could be more automatic or with fewer clicks, for example, role-based authorization, which, although a security feature, could be simplified.
  • It is a fairly intuitive and navigable software, but because it is so complete, it has different modules, tools, and functions that can make its learning curve steep.
  • Some attributes at the time of payroll cannot be changed or customized.

  • We'd like more control over certain functionalities within our APS integration.
  • We'd like more control over what actual communications are sent to our candidates.
  • We would like the ability to set a different expiration date for an interview when using our APS - right now our only choices are 7 days and 14 days.

Spark Hire is easy to use for both us and the candidate/interviewee. There is not a huge learning curve to being able to implement the program. Additionally, our clients (who are given access to the interviews) don't find it difficult to use, and our candidates have very few problems when recording their video interviews

I have not used the support that much with Spark Hire but it seems that there are a lot of features available for support and different resources that are provided on Spark Hire's website. For the most part, the system is very user-friendly and it's easy to navigate and figure out things on your own.

I can't remember the names of the other companies I reviewed but I chose Spark Hire because I could purchase the service on a monthly basis. This is an important feature for us since we're a small business.
