Bullhorn Recruitment CRM is a SaaS based solution that offers a suite of features typical of applicant tracking systems: a mobile app, batch or mass communication with potential candidates via multiple channels, instantaneous posting to multiple job boards, resume parsing, and data and document uploading.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/ZC/qV/I4ZO63AC2J5Z.PNGBullhorn is the Future of Recruiting managementBullhorn is used across our whole organization. Mainly, recruiters and branch managers use it. We use Bullhorn to manage our applicants and where there are in the process of being hired or interviewed. We are able to filter our applicants by using shortlists and tearsheets. Even if we don't have a position for the applicant, we can put them on a tearsheet or shortlist for future openings. We are also able to easily search for our applicants with their phone numbers or names making it easier to pull up their file. I use Bullhorn for probably 75-80% of my business functions with recruiting. I am not sure how I would manage without Bullhorn.,Filtering candidates Locating candidates files Keeping track of where everyone is in the process Notes - leaving notes helps our entire company see where we are with each candidate,Shortlist status - it is tedius to have different notes and different shortlist status. Shortlist status do not really help me in recruiting Textkernel in Bullhorn is sometimes difficult for me - too many clicks and buttons I would like to see more details required in candidates files - like a resume. So many candidate come through with their name and phone number and nothing else. Takes a lot more time for us to find out what their background is than if it was just a required field when applying,8,For a long time, we lost a lot of candidate traction due to only using Bullhorn and our website. We were not receiving as many candidates. Takes a long long time to learn - streamlining processes would be nice. Could have saved the company time and used it to recruit and make more money.,,LinkedIn Talent, ZipRecruiterBullhorn: ATS/CRM leaderWe are utilizing Bullhorn ATS across our entire company at a high level. It is great way to organize both our candidate/applicants as well as job orders and client information. The interface is easy to use and will help revolutionize they way you can access and organize data in many streams. It helps us with Process Mapping and Change Management also as we can see trends in activity and adjust accordingly,Candidate Tracking and Management - Easily pull up all required info and exchanges between our company and candidates Client Database building - track orders and forecast clients needs Customization - make the UI work for you not the other way around,The UI could still come a bit further. I think there is room for improvement there,9,Positive across the board. This have been helpful on so many levels in our day to day lives.,LinkedIn Talent,10,LinkedIn Talent, CareerSiteBuilder, ACCEO activeSaaS ERP StandardOne of the best ATS I have ever used! Bullhorn is the way to go!!!!!We use Bullhorn ATS for application tracking for our IT recruitment agency. ATS is essential for a lot of reasons especially in the recruitment industry where all the work happens through Resume tracking. It's a great way to save Data and the interface helps in tracking the recruitment process of a candidate/ Job. The new Novo Interface is even better and a lot handier.,The submission tracking of a candidate and where they are at in the process. Resume Parsing, auto populating the information makes the work easy. Bullhorn enables other applications to be linked to it as well, eg- Textus, which makes the work easy in contacting candidates.,I think just the timing, sometimes the candidate information ton the notes section takes a bit time to load unless I immediately click, but this could be a network issue. It would be convenient if there is a way to save all the search strings that I actually maintain in a different folder on my desktop.,10,It definitely makes the work a lot more efficient, I am not sure about the ROI as I am not on the profit/loss monitoring side of the business, however, as a user, I can definitely say, that as a Recruiter, it has definitely helped me make good placements and therefore. increase my annual income, ultimately I am sure, benefiting the organization I work for.,,Bullhorn, BambooHRBullhorn- Potential is thereWe use Bullhorn as our complete record for all contact with both candidates and clients. The software has a lot of useful tools that helps eliminate a lot of time-consuming events, but on the same knot, can often be lagging in many areas. Since 2017, they have added many new additions that simplify the information-recording process.,Ease of use & user-friendly Finally integrated to a variety of browsers and operating systems Easy export/import options to market to both clients & candidates Easy to coordinate and plan scheduled meetings and interactions,Email client is external and must be used by Gmail. The internal email feature was removed from the software (unless you mass mail). The software is a little clunkly, and although it's a newer version, it seems a bit outdated. While the platform is web-based, it fails to run smoothly through a mobile platform, and often times, the loading times are a little sluggish.,7,Very easy to record and edit contact information for marketing and communication purposes. Keeps record of previous placements, so sorting out active and passive clients is more fluid.,Constant Contact, DaXtra ParserFast, efficient and transformational!Bullhorn is our ATS in the EMEA business and recently was implemented in our US operation. We are currently in ongoing discussions to implement in our APAC business which is where the company originated and is our largest operation. We use it in EMEA across the entire business. Bullhorn has been central to ensuring we have an accurate record of all our activity with clients and candidates, allowing us to manage relationships strategically and build our business.,Efficiency in capturing data - functionality for fast capture Analysis - we use Cube19 as a partner so that allows us to make data-driven decisions and insights Reliability - never had downtime. Having it be cloud-based has given great flexibility, as does the app,Parsing tech - better options exist from partners but integration is then a challenge Automated reminders on pre-set conditions Automated status updates - i.e. contacts become lapsed if not contacted for 3 months,9,10Powerful Recruitment Tools that user-friendlyBullhorn is one of the best Recruiting tools that I have used in my recruiting career. It's very fast, very reliable, and user-friendly. I can do a quick search of who is calling me just by entering the phone number in the system. It saves time in resume submissions, contact details, and other data, and the interface that helps with tracking candidates in a timely manner. Interactions between team members through Bullhorn is awesome, as you can send notes directly to email accounts to ensure they're seen.,It fetches the right resumes with the right keywords and filters. One of my favorite features is for mass email. Once you have the right candidates you just have to add them in a Tearsheet and just do mass emails to them. It saves times and effort.,I wish we could see the name of the candidates attached to a job with notes. Instead, we have to click and go inside to check who is the candidate attached to that job.,9,It helped me in going back to my previous candidate submissions to find out any right candidates that I have worked with in the past. It's easy to work with people who you have already worked with previously and know that they could be the best fit for your current role.,10,10,,LinkedIn TalentNot fully realizedBullhorn was used to keep track of all of our candidates and prospects. It was used by both sales and recruiters. I would say that it helps recruiters a lot more than it helps sales. A lot of the info wouldn't cross over into areas it should have. It didn't provide enough options for the sales side of things. It wasn't clear who was a prospect and who was a candidate.,Filtering candidates Tracking candidates and updating their status,The UI is cluttered and could be cleaned up Can't combine duplicates Not enough customization options Glitches often,3,Well informed recruiters,3,4,Greenhouse, Lever, Workday Professional Services Automation and Jobvite,Slack, SalesLoftBullhorn - A Great ATS!We use Bullhorn ATS for application tracking for IT Staffing. It stores resume submissions, contact info, and other data and the interface help in tracking the recruitment process of a candidate, jobs, placements, and related info.,Tracks data. User-friendly. Resume search function.,The new Novo interface requires more clicks than the previous version when viewing data.,9,Storage of resumes & extensive data has helped us build our own database of unique candidates with various skillsets. Our competitors may not have access to the same resources.,SAP Fieldglass, Microsoft 365 BusinessBullhorn ATSBullhorn is used company-wide. We have different branches throughout Canada and the United States, and all offices using the same tool helps us keep track of candidates in different cities and make sure we aren't working with someone else's candidate.,It keeps all of the necessary information for each job requisition in one spot. Organizes information well and succinctly. Very intuitive.,The candidate search function isn't the easiest to use. There are a lot of unnecessary tools or cards that can make the screen seem cluttered sometimes. It would be nice to be able to delete notes or submissions if they're accidentally put on the wrong jobs. For the TextUs integration, I think it'd be better if there was a tab for texts like there is for emails, rather than being added to the Notes field and making it very difficult to go back and find the information you need. Duplicate candidates in BH -- it would be great if you could combine the accounts and delete one of them.,8,Great CRM tool to ease the recruitment processBullhorn is a great ATS and CRM tool to use. This helps in activity tracking, reporting, candidate searches, and managing leads. It helped in maintaining our performance metrics, and for the reporting part. It is user-friendly and easy to navigate. You can also set reminders to follow up on items that you feel you might forget, and to track past emails. This will help a lot in recruiting strategy.,Maintaining and managing the pool of candidates. Tracking applicants and updating their status. User-friendly and great customer service.,New features are rarely communicated, hence it does take some time to adapt. Currently, there's no data mining tool available at no cost, which would allow us to clean the data. Has a lag in-between, and will log you out if there is any problem with parsing the resume, but that is ok.,9,Nice branding and marketing options available that can be utilized. An open-source system that allows us to engage with candidates and clients. We can integrate 3rd party software for outreach to our candidates.,CEIPAL TalentHire,CEIPAL TalentHireRobust offering with room for improvementBullhorn is mainly used by the Talent Acquisition team to track all candidates, job orders, and the hub collecting all documentation and information on interviews and our internal process. Recruiters will add candidates to the system, link them to jobs we're working, move them in the pipeline based on where they are in our internal process, add their resume and supporting documents to their files tab, and record all interviews, notes, feedback, and communication we have with candidates. We also create all our own job descriptions and create the jobs in Bullhorn.,Inhaling resumes from Word documents - field mapping is about 80+% accurate and will check for duplicates before savings. Adding notes is very easy and can be categorized based on the type of interaction it is: email, text, phone call, etc. Integrations with many 3rd party vendors that are already widely used by recruiting and staffing agencies.,Reporting: out of the box reporting is not very detailed or easy to navigate. In order to get better detailed and specific reports, you either need their Canvas product or pay for a 3rd party vendor. Customization: will get better with NOVO Experience update, but many users still don't have it. Right now many fields and order are not customizable Many features Bullhorn can do are not apparent to the user, often times you have to call in the figure things out.,8,It's really the only ATS to use, not only because they're the biggest (they also keep buying smaller software companies), but also because of all their integrations.,PCRecruiter,Microsoft Office 2016, Microsoft Office 365Bullhorn ReviewWe use Bullhorn as our primary Applicant Tracking System. We input all of our candidates into it, make notes regarding candidates, source within it for older candidates for new roles, post and publish our roles within it, etc. It is being used across the whole organization. This allows for us to see every candidate who has ever been contacted and also keep track of our candidates, where they're at in their job search, record when we contacted them and how we contacted them, as well as track where we're at in the recruitment of the jobs we're working.,Very user-friendly and self-explanatory Great at keeping track of candidates, including where we're at in the recruitment process with them and where the candidate is at in their job search Very easy to use in an organization because you can check in on who has contacted what candidate and ensure that you're not double calling candidates,Candidate sourcing is sometimes difficult as the search bar and filters sometimes do not work Glitches a lot - will kick you out often or will not properly parse resumes or upload them Attaching files is sometimes difficult and this feature also seems to glitch often, as well,7,Great tool that makes it very easy to track candidates and provides a great database and way to keep track of roles, candidates and users. Positively effects business because we use this tool for everything - to publish roles, to source, to submit candidates, to track candidates, etc etc Lots of features and ways to keep track of candidates and create tear sheets, etc etc Only negative is that sourcing is sometimes a pain and does not often times provide great results.,Bullhorn is the way to go!Bullhorn is our current CRM and it helps out with finding and adding candidates. A very well put database for us. Bullhorn is being used across Procom in its entirety. As of right now, not sure of any. It does lag a lot though causing us not being able to use it effectively at times.,Addition of candidates and effective candidate database Bullhorn is a great ATS because it is easy to navigate making your workload A LOT easier I used a proprietary ATS at my old job and it was not as efficient as Bullhorn,I think Daxtra search needs to be free and not of charge. Adding costs to everything in BH is getting out of hand I think certain tabs need to have more information added and list of things we can add without having to pay extra for anything Some more effective BH training would be greatly appreciated.,10,My ROI has been great because it saves me time when looking for a candidate and at the end of the day, time is money. When Bullhorn glitches or lags, it messes up my momentum especially if a job needs submissions and is getting halted around the same time Overall, Bullhorn has made a huge and positive impact for my recruiting.,Salesforce Analytics CloudThe Good, The Bad and The UglyWe use Bullhorn CRM across our whole organization. It helps streamline our candidate intake, interview and job placement process. It also helps us organize our clients. As an admin, it helps me keep track of who is interviewing and when. It links with Outlook so all emails can be sent via Bullhorn (BH) and automatically documented in the appropriate place i.e., candidate file or client file.,It tracks our candidate and client interaction with great detail. I like the Bullhorn for email function - instead of sending an email via Outlook and then having to copy and paste it into BH, BH will open Outlook email for me and then automatically place a copy of the email in the recipients BH profile. BH will parse resumes received via email - lessening the amount of information manually added.,Creating reports - I have ones that were created by BH but I cannot change the specifications to meet my end of the year needs. Cannot create an Excel sheet directly from a tear sheet - I have to save the tear sheet then go into the search bar and search for the name of the tear sheet in order to download it as a CSV file. Cannot print task lists - I had to create a ticket and they showed me a workaround.,7,I haven't been in this role long enough to answer,Taleo,Agile-1 AccelerationVMS, Fieldglass VMS,9,,Tracking candidates Tracking clients Tracking Jobs,8Okay but no back office.[It's] Used as an ATS and CRM across the whole organization.

A lot of manual work to pull clean data.,6,Streamlined some data as it integrates well with job boards to take advantage of orders with prospects and customers.

We have been using Bullhorn for about 5 years, and have seen lots of innovation and changes in the software in this time. Because of the integrations with other software, it is also used by finance / HR and our services arm to manage contractors, invoicing and time-sheeting.,The marketplace of integrations with other software is a great bonus, allowing us to leverage Bullhorn across departments to manage from start to finish our contractors Constantly evolving and progressing the software, building upon past versions and improving the design and functionality based on customer feedback,An app for phones would be a great bonus, as the mobile browser version isnt particularly user friendly on a small screen,10,Bullhorn more than pays for itself due to the collaboration and ease of use of the system, allowing us to get to data and candidates much faster than we could previously,bond adapt, idibu and linkedin recruiter,10,1,Recruitment candidate tracking Opportunity and new business development Placement management and timesheetsBullhorn ATS & CRM ReviewBullhorn is used across the organization. We use it for sales opportunity tracking, as well as applicant tracking, and employee on-boarding.,It's easily customizable. They have one of the best support teams of any software vendor I've done business with. The search capabilities are unmatched.,I'd love to be able to automatically email candidates when we mark them as "not qualified" or "not a fit" for a role. I am ready for the back office and on-boarding product to get a UI facelift. I've heard it's on the way! I would love to have a mobile app that employees could use to submit their time sheets. They can use the mobile version of the website, which is fine, but it would be great to have this functionality in the mobile app.,10,Bullhorn has offered a positive ROI overall to our business. Bullhorn allows us to track Leads & Opportunities on the sales side of the business, and easily convert those to jobs once a deal has been closed. We've found out in most cases that Bullhorn offers more robust functionality in terms of candidate sourcing and traceability than some of the solutions most companies are currently leveraging today.Bullhorn-Your go to ATS/CRMBullhorn is currently being used by all of our Recruiters, Account Manager and Client Services for recruitment and job order management. We also have implemented the CRM component for the prospecting component of client acquisition. The ATS is used extensively for all stages of job order management and talent acquisition. Bullhorn helps to standardize the process and track the progression of roles and candidates. This enables consistent reporting across the organization so as a team, you can look for areas of success and areas that require improvement.,Candidate Management- it is very easy to track and search your candidates. Candidates are the heart of your ATS in staffing and Bullhorn does a great job of making those candidates accessible. Job Order Management-Being able to keep your job orders managed in a way that keeps you closest to money is a one of the best parts of the system. You can filter your lists, schedule your followups and keep on top of the orders that are the most urgent. Configuration- the ability to configure the tool to the look and feel that matches your business. Bullhorn CRM allows Account Managers to do their prospecting without cluttering the Company and Contact List with Company and Contacts that are not buyers or individuals that do not using staffing, not decision makers, etc. Leads allows AM's to pursue those individual within a different entity until they are vetted as buyers. The opportunities allow you to track those longer range opportunities versus storing them in a notebook or on an excel document. They become company IP for down the road. Configuration of the CRM is huge asset. We have changed and configured our workflow several times over the past few years until we have decided on the workflow we want to move forward with. The tool allowed us to make these changes as we saw fit and without the time and cost of having to go through a PS channel. The Lead and Opportunity dashboards help to keep you on track in a visual way so you can see the time cycle of your leads and opportunities.,Submission Management- Although there is a submission entity in Bullhorn that allows you to do a lot of things, this is one area that could still use improvement in terms of the ability to search web responses more efficiently and displaying of the pay/bill rates that are entered within the submission process. More configuration here would be great.,9,Bullhorn has helped with the standardization of data which allows us to track our high, low and in between individuals. It allows for corporate bench marks to be tracked. It also allows for a closer look at all of the data points to make decisions versus making decisions based on perceptions. The data has definitely helped us make better business decisions because of the reporting capabilities. Bullhorn has some great marketplace partners and additional products like VMS Access that help with your VMS clients. This is a real time saver.,One Stop Shop for CRMBullhorn was used on both the Recruitment and Sales side of our organization. It allows both divisions to effectively communicate with each other with no downtime waiting for a call or email back. For onboarding, payroll and human resource related questions it was very easy to navigate and see where someone left off if an issue needed to be escalated. Very easy tool for tracking, potential and current clients as well as candidates.,Management Reports Recruitment Reports Sales Reports Forecasting Reports,If there is a chain of commands that need signatures, it would be nice to be able to push the document through instead of a hard copy. Sometimes the drop-down functions don't match exact scenarios, it would be nice to be able to edit OTHER with an explanation. It would be nice to connect the Recruitment side, to match when a candidate is added to the database by another recruiter but is actually a skill match for a requirement that you have been assigned to as the primary recruiter.

The notes features really helps keep us all on the same level of information and knowledge of how our current and active candidates are doing as well as our prospective candidates.,Notes features is a real hit with our recruiters.

We have the database configured so that only on users in their respective departments (i.e. Pentasia or Ambra) can see records specific to their brand. Bullhorn allows everyone from consultants to senior management and the board to see activity, which jobs are being worked on currently, any records which have been added recently, and other useful information. This means we are able to understand our pipeline over the coming months, if we are bringing in new business (or need a BD drive).

The support team are fantastic; I can't praise them enough. I raise so many tickets and they always do their best to help. We have customised our database a lot and integrated various partners to help us be the best we can. Bullhorn has always been able to cope with our demands and help us progress as a business.,It would be useful to have more custom fields available. On placement records, the commissions are automatically split 50/50 - something which bugs our consultants as we often need the commissions to be set to 100% for reporting (unless there is a split).

Bullhorn is used across our whole organization. Mainly, recruiters and branch managers use it. We use Bullhorn to manage our applicants and where there are in the process of being hired or interviewed. We are able to filter our applicants by using shortlists and tearsheets. Even if we don't have a position for the applicant, we can put them on a tearsheet or shortlist for future openings. We are also able to easily search for our applicants with their phone numbers or names making it easier to pull up their file. I use Bullhorn for probably 75-80% of my business functions with recruiting. I am not sure how I would manage without Bullhorn.
  • Filtering candidates
  • Locating candidates files
  • Keeping track of where everyone is in the process
  • Notes - leaving notes helps our entire company see where we are with each candidate
  • Shortlist status - it is tedius to have different notes and different shortlist status. Shortlist status do not really help me in recruiting
  • Textkernel in Bullhorn is sometimes difficult for me - too many clicks and buttons
  • I would like to see more details required in candidates files - like a resume. So many candidate come through with their name and phone number and nothing else. Takes a lot more time for us to find out what their background is than if it was just a required field when applying
Really great to use searching for candidates by name or phone number. It is harder to use when I have to filter by job posting. It just doesn't work as easy. I wish I could just click on a job, and see everyone who has applied for it. But instead I need to find the job, find the posting, and click on 3 other things to see who applied. It works great when I need to make notes on where I am at with any candidate.

We are utilizing Bullhorn ATS across our entire company at a high level. It is great way to organize both our candidate/applicants as well as job orders and client information. The interface is easy to use and will help revolutionize they way you can access and organize data in many streams.
It helps us with Process Mapping and Change Management also as we can see trends in activity and adjust accordingly
  • Candidate Tracking and Management - Easily pull up all required info and exchanges between our company and candidates
  • Client Database building - track orders and forecast clients needs
  • Customization - make the UI work for you not the other way around
  • The UI could still come a bit further. I think there is room for improvement there
Bullhorn is great for staffing and client management across the board. I think that anyone with people and job management needs could benefit from this system and it's advanced front and back end components. It is easily integrated into any environment.

We use Bullhorn ATS for application tracking for our IT recruitment agency. ATS is essential for a lot of reasons especially in the recruitment industry where all the work happens through Resume tracking. It's a great way to save Data and the interface helps in tracking the recruitment process of a candidate/ Job. The new Novo Interface is even better and a lot handier.
  • The submission tracking of a candidate and where they are at in the process.
  • Resume Parsing, auto populating the information makes the work easy.
  • Bullhorn enables other applications to be linked to it as well, eg- Textus, which makes the work easy in contacting candidates.
  • I think just the timing, sometimes the candidate information ton the notes section takes a bit time to load unless I immediately click, but this could be a network issue.
  • It would be convenient if there is a way to save all the search strings that I actually maintain in a different folder on my desktop.
I think especially in the IT Recruitment industry where Keywords plays a major role, Bullhorn can contain a vast database of IT folks here in Canada and abroad. out of all the tools I have used, Bullhorn is the most user-friendly and easiest to pick up as a new user.

We use Bullhorn as our complete record for all contact with both candidates and clients. The software has a lot of useful tools that helps eliminate a lot of time-consuming events, but on the same knot, can often be lagging in many areas. Since 2017, they have added many new additions that simplify the information-recording process.
  • Ease of use & user-friendly
  • Finally integrated to a variety of browsers and operating systems
  • Easy export/import options to market to both clients & candidates
  • Easy to coordinate and plan scheduled meetings and interactions
  • Email client is external and must be used by Gmail. The internal email feature was removed from the software (unless you mass mail).
  • The software is a little clunkly, and although it's a newer version, it seems a bit outdated.
  • While the platform is web-based, it fails to run smoothly through a mobile platform, and often times, the loading times are a little sluggish.
I would test out multiple ATS and see which work best for you. If you are comfortable using Gmail as your email platform, than Bullhorn is most likely your best option. Bullhorn makes it really easy to parse in new candidates and client information, all without tedious external options.

Bullhorn is our ATS in the EMEA business and recently was implemented in our US operation. We are currently in ongoing discussions to implement in our APAC business which is where the company originated and is our largest operation. We use it in EMEA across the entire business. Bullhorn has been central to ensuring we have an accurate record of all our activity with clients and candidates, allowing us to manage relationships strategically and build our business.
  • Efficiency in capturing data - functionality for fast capture
  • Analysis - we use Cube19 as a partner so that allows us to make data-driven decisions and insights
  • Reliability - never had downtime. Having it be cloud-based has given great flexibility, as does the app
  • Parsing tech - better options exist from partners but integration is then a challenge
  • Automated reminders on pre-set conditions
  • Automated status updates - i.e. contacts become lapsed if not contacted for 3 months
Bullhorn is well suited in all situations in my experience.

Bullhorn
is one of the best Recruiting tools that I have used in my recruiting career. It's very fast, very reliable, and user-friendly. I can do a quick search of who is
calling me just by entering the phone number in the system. It saves time in resume submissions, contact details, and other data, and the
interface that helps with tracking candidates in a timely manner. Interactions between
team members through Bullhorn is awesome, as you can send notes directly to
email accounts to ensure they're seen.



  • It fetches the right resumes with the right keywords and filters.
  • One of my favorite features is for mass email. Once you have the right candidates you just have to add them in a Tearsheet and just do mass emails to them. It saves times and effort.
  • I wish we could see the name of the candidates attached to a job with notes. Instead, we have to click and go inside to check who is the candidate attached to that job.
I have used many ATSs in my Recruiting career and I can proudly say that Bullhorn is the best out of them. It's easy to fetch the right candidates from the database with the right filters. You can also find them with the first and last name, email ID, or even with the phone number. It makes life easy when it's time to check who is calling just by looking at your caller ID and typing the number in Bullhorn.
Mass Emailing is one of the best features where you can send emails to a bunch of the right candidates without showing them that it's a mass email, as it looks more of a personal email.
Reporting is also an effective tool in Bullhorn. To track personal performance, it helps in getting the data of the last day, week, month or year. It's a pretty impressive feature.

Bullhorn was used to keep track of all of our candidates and prospects. It was used by both sales and recruiters. I would say that it helps recruiters a lot more than it helps sales. A lot of the info wouldn't cross over into areas it should have. It didn't provide enough options for the sales side of things. It wasn't clear who was a prospect and who was a candidate.
  • Filtering candidates
  • Tracking candidates and updating their status
  • The UI is cluttered and could be cleaned up
  • Can't combine duplicates
  • Not enough customization options
  • Glitches often
I believe this is well suited for recruiters only. If you're using this at a recruitment firm and are business development, you're going to have to get creative on how to best keep up and log your contacts. There needs to be a Bullhorn Sales area.

Bullhorn is used company-wide. We have different branches throughout Canada and the United States, and all offices using the same tool helps us keep track of candidates in different cities and make sure we aren't working with someone else's candidate.
  • It keeps all of the necessary information for each job requisition in one spot.
  • Organizes information well and succinctly.
  • Very intuitive.
  • The candidate search function isn't the easiest to use.
  • There are a lot of unnecessary tools or cards that can make the screen seem cluttered sometimes.
  • It would be nice to be able to delete notes or submissions if they're accidentally put on the wrong jobs.
  • For the TextUs integration, I think it'd be better if there was a tab for texts like there is for emails, rather than being added to the Notes field and making it very difficult to go back and find the information you need.
  • Duplicate candidates in BH -- it would be great if you could combine the accounts and delete one of them.
Communications between team members through Bullhorn is great, since you can send notes directly to email accounts to ensure they're seen.

Bullhorn is a great ATS and CRM tool to use. This helps in activity tracking, reporting, candidate searches, and managing leads. It helped in maintaining our performance metrics, and for the reporting part. It is user-friendly and easy to navigate. You can also set reminders to follow up on items that you feel you might forget, and to track past emails. This will help a lot in recruiting strategy.
  • Maintaining and managing the pool of candidates.
  • Tracking applicants and updating their status.
  • User-friendly and great customer service.
  • New features are rarely communicated, hence it does take some time to adapt.
  • Currently, there's no data mining tool available at no cost, which would allow us to clean the data.
  • Has a lag in-between, and will log you out if there is any problem with parsing the resume, but that is ok.
If you are into staffing and recruitment, this is a great tool to get, with all the features, and there are many options that you can customize based on your needs. It's easy to handle, and they have a great customer support team to address your queries on the go. Bullhorn has a reliable and nice modern user interface; you will definitely like it.

Bullhorn is mainly used by the Talent Acquisition team to track all candidates, job orders, and the hub collecting all documentation and information on interviews and our internal process. Recruiters will add candidates to the system, link them to jobs we're working, move them in the pipeline based on where they are in our internal process, add their resume and supporting documents to their files tab, and record all interviews, notes, feedback, and communication we have with candidates. We also create all our own job descriptions and create the jobs in Bullhorn.
  • Inhaling resumes from Word documents - field mapping is about 80+% accurate and will check for duplicates before savings.
  • Adding notes is very easy and can be categorized based on the type of interaction it is: email, text, phone call, etc.
  • Integrations with many 3rd party vendors that are already widely used by recruiting and staffing agencies.
  • Reporting: out of the box reporting is not very detailed or easy to navigate. In order to get better detailed and specific reports, you either need their Canvas product or pay for a 3rd party vendor.
  • Customization: will get better with NOVO Experience update, but many users still don't have it. Right now many fields and order are not customizable
  • Many features Bullhorn can do are not apparent to the user, often times you have to call in the figure things out.
Bullhorn is only appropriate for staffing/recruiting agencies, or internal corporate recruiters. It is made to track jobs, candidates, placements, and is not well suited for any other scenario. Bullhorn integrates with other, more robust software for sales and leads gen, but itself is not a sales or lead gen tool. Bullhorn works best when you integrate with the other services you're already using, like your background screening vendor, phone service, or other analytics tools.

We use Bullhorn as our primary Applicant Tracking System. We input all of our candidates into it, make notes regarding candidates, source within it for older candidates for new roles, post and publish our roles within it, etc. It is being used across the whole organization. This allows for us to see every candidate who has ever been contacted and also keep track of our candidates, where they're at in their job search, record when we contacted them and how we contacted them, as well as track where we're at in the recruitment of the jobs we're working.
  • Very user-friendly and self-explanatory
  • Great at keeping track of candidates, including where we're at in the recruitment process with them and where the candidate is at in their job search
  • Very easy to use in an organization because you can check in on who has contacted what candidate and ensure that you're not double calling candidates
  • Candidate sourcing is sometimes difficult as the search bar and filters sometimes do not work
  • Glitches a lot - will kick you out often or will not properly parse resumes or upload them
  • Attaching files is sometimes difficult and this feature also seems to glitch often, as well
BH is very user-friendly and easy to be trained on. It provides a good space for tracking candidates and is great for notes regarding candidates. However, there are many glitches in the system and instances in which these great features do not always work as they are meant to. Also, the candidate sourcing pool does not prove very effective and it is hard to delete candidates once they've been inputted into the system.

Bullhorn is our current CRM and it helps out with finding and adding candidates. A very well put database for us. Bullhorn is being used across Procom in its entirety. As of right now, not sure of any. It does lag a lot though causing us not being able to use it effectively at times.
  • Addition of candidates and effective candidate database
  • Bullhorn is a great ATS because it is easy to navigate making your workload A LOT easier
  • I used a proprietary ATS at my old job and it was not as efficient as Bullhorn
  • I think Daxtra search needs to be free and not of charge. Adding costs to everything in BH is getting out of hand
  • I think certain tabs need to have more information added and list of things we can add without having to pay extra for anything
  • Some more effective BH training would be greatly appreciated.
Bullhorn tracks my applications and submittals. It is a very effective tool if you use it correctly. Sometimes the glitching and lagging can be annoying and I think that needs to improve.

We use Bullhorn CRM across our whole organization. It helps streamline our candidate intake, interview and job placement process. It also helps us organize our clients. As an admin, it helps me keep track of who is interviewing and when. It links with Outlook so all emails can be sent via Bullhorn (BH) and automatically documented in the appropriate place i.e., candidate file or client file.
  • It tracks our candidate and client interaction with great detail.
  • I like the Bullhorn for email function - instead of sending an email via Outlook and then having to copy and paste it into BH, BH will open Outlook email for me and then automatically place a copy of the email in the recipients BH profile.
  • BH will parse resumes received via email - lessening the amount of information manually added.
  • Creating reports - I have ones that were created by BH but I cannot change the specifications to meet my end of the year needs.
  • Cannot create an Excel sheet directly from a tear sheet - I have to save the tear sheet then go into the search bar and search for the name of the tear sheet in order to download it as a CSV file.
  • Cannot print task lists - I had to create a ticket and they showed me a workaround.
It tracks candidates, clients and jobs very well. There are some areas though, that have too many steps or are overly complicated like not being to print a task list, but I can print a job list or candidate list. In order to print a task list, I have to select all, then copy and paste into an Excel sheet.

Bullhorn is our CRM and Applicant Tracking systems for the recruitment arm of our business. We have been using Bullhorn for about 5 years, and have seen lots of innovation and changes in the software in this time. Because of the integrations with other software, it is also used by finance / HR and our services arm to manage contractors, invoicing and time-sheeting.
  • The marketplace of integrations with other software is a great bonus, allowing us to leverage Bullhorn across departments to manage from start to finish our contractors
  • Constantly evolving and progressing the software, building upon past versions and improving the design and functionality based on customer feedback
  • An app for phones would be a great bonus, as the mobile browser version isnt particularly user friendly on a small screen
Brilliant as a full service recruitment platform. Where it hasnt worked so well is on the IT Services side of our business. We tried to look at Bullhorn for this so we could have one system across the business, but the functionality is to Recruitment focused to make it viable

Bullhorn is used across the organization. We use it for sales opportunity tracking, as well as applicant tracking, and employee on-boarding.
  • It's easily customizable.
  • They have one of the best support teams of any software vendor I've done business with.
  • The search capabilities are unmatched.
  • I'd love to be able to automatically email candidates when we mark them as "not qualified" or "not a fit" for a role.
  • I am ready for the back office and on-boarding product to get a UI facelift. I've heard it's on the way!
  • I would love to have a mobile app that employees could use to submit their time sheets. They can use the mobile version of the website, which is fine, but it would be great to have this functionality in the mobile app.
Bullhorn is well suited for medium to large scale companies. They integrate with a variety of different vendors, offering different software solutions for your business.

Bullhorn is currently being used by all of our Recruiters, Account Manager and Client Services for recruitment and job order management. We also have implemented the CRM component for the prospecting component of client acquisition. The ATS is used extensively for all stages of job order management and talent acquisition. Bullhorn helps to standardize the process and track the progression of roles and candidates. This enables consistent reporting across the organization so as a team, you can look for areas of success and areas that require improvement.
  • Candidate Management- it is very easy to track and search your candidates. Candidates are the heart of your ATS in staffing and Bullhorn does a great job of making those candidates accessible.
  • Job Order Management-Being able to keep your job orders managed in a way that keeps you closest to money is a one of the best parts of the system. You can filter your lists, schedule your followups and keep on top of the orders that are the most urgent.
  • Configuration- the ability to configure the tool to the look and feel that matches your business.
  • Bullhorn CRM allows Account Managers to do their prospecting without cluttering the Company and Contact List with Company and Contacts that are not buyers or individuals that do not using staffing, not decision makers, etc. Leads allows AM's to pursue those individual within a different entity until they are vetted as buyers. The opportunities allow you to track those longer range opportunities versus storing them in a notebook or on an excel document. They become company IP for down the road.
  • Configuration of the CRM is huge asset. We have changed and configured our workflow several times over the past few years until we have decided on the workflow we want to move forward with. The tool allowed us to make these changes as we saw fit and without the time and cost of having to go through a PS channel.
  • The Lead and Opportunity dashboards help to keep you on track in a visual way so you can see the time cycle of your leads and opportunities.
  • Submission Management- Although there is a submission entity in Bullhorn that allows you to do a lot of things, this is one area that could still use improvement in terms of the ability to search web responses more efficiently and displaying of the pay/bill rates that are entered within the submission process. More configuration here would be great.
Bullhorn is well suited for any staffing organization. They continue to invest in and listen to their customers for ways to continually improve their product and to make changes that enhance the user experience. The ability to configure and customize the work flow for your organization is key, and a lot of that can be accomplished out of the box.

Bullhorn was used on both the Recruitment and Sales side of our organization. It allows both divisions to effectively communicate with each other with no downtime waiting for a call or email back. For onboarding, payroll and human resource related questions it was very easy to navigate and see where someone left off if an issue needed to be escalated. Very easy tool for tracking, potential and current clients as well as candidates.
  • Management Reports
  • Recruitment Reports
  • Sales Reports
  • Forecasting Reports
  • If there is a chain of commands that need signatures, it would be nice to be able to push the document through instead of a hard copy.
  • Sometimes the drop-down functions don't match exact scenarios, it would be nice to be able to edit OTHER with an explanation.
  • It would be nice to connect the Recruitment side, to match when a candidate is added to the database by another recruiter but is actually a skill match for a requirement that you have been assigned to as the primary recruiter.
  • Being able to assign who is the Primary Recruiter, especially if working on a team of Recruiters
I believe Bullhorn would be a strong benefit to add to any organization. I have used many different CRMs for Recruitment, Sales, and Human Resources. I find Bullhorn to be the easiest to cross train a team when not in the same office. I find it to be very user-friendly and even if you are not a technical guru, the step-by-step process is broken down and very easy for anyone at any level to use. I believe it could be used improperly if taking the notes to court against someone and therefore anyone that has access to enter notes, needs to be taught that anything entered into the system can and will be used as a legal document. I believe there should be training on what is considered appropriate terminology and what is forbidden or frowned upon.

We use Bullhorn CRM for recruiting and sales, we use the recruiting tools within and we use it to track our candidates from submittal to hire. It is also used for reporting, note keeping, and generating new leads. It is very effective for organization purposes but the recruiting is a bit weak in my opinion.
  • Reporting - It is very easy to track reports and look at statistics/vitals for each recruiter and salesperson within any timetable.
  • Recruiting - I think it is hard to filter through searches as each canddiate just shows the name of the candidate and their job title, highlighting is not shown when the candidate is opened up.
Bullhorn CRM is well suited for keeping track of candidates when entered into the system. It is less appropriate as the primary source for recruiting efforts.

We are currently using Bullhorn CRM across our whole agency. It has definitely increased efficiency and teamwork across the board. There are many features that help the recruiters access information and files at a faster pace. They are able to make a submission to a placement in record time. The notes features really helps keep us all on the same level of information and knowledge of how our current and active candidates are doing as well as our prospective candidates.
  • Notes features is a real hit with our recruiters.
  • Merging records whether it be duplicate jobs or candidates helps minimize duplicate information.
  • Everything is well connected, for instance a client will show all of the open jobs.
  • There are a lot of small features I would like to see as an admin such as bulk update en mass on occupation for users.
  • The limit to the amount of "Customtext" options under field mapping could be higher.
  • I would like more options to generate different types of report in different formats.
While our recruiters are speaking to prospective candidates they can create appointments and tasks while they are on the phone, it really ups the multi tasking and information sharing. We can view all tasks, and appointments from all users so we can synchronize and help each other out more efficiently.

It helps recruiters to stay on track of jobs, manage the candidate experience, and even helps to identify which partner relationships need nurturing. It definitely helps to keep things moving along.
  • Task list management - Bullhorn helps me to manage my daily activities

  • The life-cycle of a job order - Bullhorn tracks where we are in the process
  • Metrics and goals that matter - The dashboards are helpful
  • Sometimes a duplicate note is created - so missed functionality
It is very well suited for a team of recruiters - both contract and direct hire / permanent. Dashboards are great for management and individual performers. It is well suited for any recruiter that is tracking multiple jobs, potential leads, and desires to really manage the customer experience. it's especially great for teams because everyone can see the notes added.

We use Bullhorn across the whole of Pentasia and Ambra. We have the database configured so that only on users in their respective departments (i.e. Pentasia or Ambra) can see records specific to their brand.

Bullhorn allows everyone from consultants to senior management and the board to see activity, which jobs are being worked on currently, any records which have been added recently, and other useful information. This means we are able to understand our pipeline over the coming months, if we are bringing in new business (or need a BD drive). Bullhorn also prevents awkward conversations where consultants are asking the same questions - all the information is there for everyone to see !
  • Bullhorn is really intuitive, there is so much capability, but as the database is so easy to use this isn't a problem.
  • The support team are fantastic; I can't praise them enough. I raise so many tickets and they always do their best to help.
  • We have customised our database a lot and integrated various partners to help us be the best we can. Bullhorn has always been able to cope with our demands and help us progress as a business.
  • It would be useful to have more custom fields available.
  • On placement records, the commissions are automatically split 50/50 - something which bugs our consultants as we often need the commissions to be set to 100% for reporting (unless there is a split).
  • It would be good if we could have the option of filtering by ex-users.
In the general recruitment process, Bullhorn provides enough depth to get a fully rounded view of what is happening. It is possible to get a quick overview of any record from the list view (and en-mass) which can be a time saver.

I am aware Bullhorn has brought out their own reporting function, but sometimes when wanting a quick snippet of information, this can be difficult to obtain. For example, I was asked if it was possible to see all interviews logged by an ex-user, this wasn't so easy to find.

We use Bullhorn to manage a majority of our business needs. We use the CRM features in business development as well as client retention. Bullhorn is what we use to track candidates and the entire recruiting process for our clients. Bullhorn also offers back of the house features that we use from time to time.
  • Track and manage leads and sales pipeline
  • Easy to convert leads to real sales opportunities and eventually convert the opportunities into jobs. All of this is done seamlessly with little to no duplication of content.
  • Reporting can be exported to Excel.
  • Searching databases can be clunky at times (certain contact searches don't always return data from lead database).
Bullhorn CRM is good at keeping prospect and contact information up to date. There are many plugins that help simplify processes. We have Shoretel VOIP telephone system - there is dialer plugin that dials contacts by clicking on their telephone number in the Bullhorn record. The dialer plugin also prompts to add a note to record a summary of the call.
