in my opinion, It looks good but it misses A LOT of functionality. They then want you to 'pay' to 'customise' read - add standard functionality - which ever recruitment software has. And btw you are actually only paying for some simple scripting anyone can understand. When you want to depart you are ransomed thousands. At least $25k. Oh and $1 per attachement/CV.

Applicant/s should be given access, to review dirty data, and provide a way to upload validation to correct dirty data gathered from clearinghouse and non-profits who are not liable for errors. Bullhorn is not liable either, yet reports dirty data gathered.
Applicant/s rights need to be first before a revocation of offer...
This is a non-recommendation, as a result of dirty data gathered impacting hiring decisions.

If you are in the Staffing world, Bullhorn ATS & CRM is a must. We've tried other competitors and nothing compares. It's simple to use, has an easy interface, and makes organization so simplistic with very little room for error. Bullhorn ATS & CRM allows us to communicate internally with one another without having to pick up a phone, or send an email.

We used this when we are trying to pull candidate instead of using the monster and dice since it auto upload resumes from their. It is perfect if it will also upload the updated resume of the candidate. Some of the resumes on Monster is already updated but if we check Bullhorn ATS & CRM it still got the old resume.

Bullhorn served as a very reliable and thorough tracking system for contacts, discovering prospects, and maintaining track of all relevant data. There are many customization options, strong search results, and sensible workflows. Excellent reporting tool. When we needed to find new resumes but all we could find were talents who had previously been discovered, it was less appropriate. Job Boards outperformed Bull Horn in terms of speed and quality.

We are a perm-placement-only organization and use Bullhorn solely for a CRM system and data management. It would be great if there was an outward-facing client portal as well, where both parties could enter candidates/leave feedback. I think it is better suited for contract-placing organizations.

I really like having Bullhorn to look back on my notes with my candidates. The best part of using BH versus another note take platform is that when I’m out of the office, one of my colleagues can pickup where I left off and ensure the candidate experience is consistent.

The product is fine, it is the company employees and how management enables these entitled individuals to mistreat their customers. They will blame the customer for technical issues every time. They hate to take responsibility. They force the customer to be proactive to get any issue solved. They will admonish the customer when they get upset over Bullhorn's incompetency.

Bullhorn ATS & CRM works well for recruiting and placement functions. It's great for housing all pertinent information about a candidate in one spot. For onboarding functions, it is definitely possible to overcrowd the notes section of the candidate profile, which is why Bullhorn is not best suited for documenting the onboarding process for new employees.

For recruitment businesses there really is no better tool out there. Bullhorn ATS & CRM integrates flawlessly with other software making it less work for consultants in having lots of different tabs open at once. In addition to this, the support team are fantastic they are quick to assist in fixing issues should they arise. I accidentally deleted a lot of tasks which are essentially diary reminders and leads which upset the sales floor as you can imagine. it was a quick fix for this to be undone quickly and without issue. Day to day, adding a candidate is as easy as dragging and dropping a document in either PDF or word format. the system pics up duplicates quickly also ensuring the system is not clogged up with lots of the same information.

Well suited for companies with awful processes and are happy with a clunky system their staff don't want to use. Not suited for smart, young, and agile companies, that want to provide an excellent service to their clients and candidates.

Hiring is made easy with Bullhorn ATS & CRM in the previous company where I worked. The fact that we can manage various steps in hiring a candidate as per our convenient timeline is priceless. This helps us to get ready with all permutations and combinations for the candidates to be hired. At the same time, the same software stays as a lifelong management tool for the employees hired.

I'd say Bullhorn is most useful for starting small businesses. Its efficiency in delivering information that the employees need is indubitable. As it is, it functions as a great resource and well-programmed HRIS. Employees find it generally easy to use and have found no request on how to use it or complaints yet. The reminder system has proven to be efficient in getting Timesheets signed on time and meeting our deadlines with the payroll team.

Bullhorn [ATS & CRM] would be a suitable product for anyone with an existing CRM system or ATS system that finds theirs is slow or clunky or just doesn't look very nice. Bullhorn provides a visually appealing way to address these issues. Bullhorn wouldn't be the most appropriate system if the company using it wishes to implement new features and have a fully bespoke system as Bullhorn has been built in mind to serve many different companies wanting many different things. Their support teams were not the most responsible and also Bullhorn is not a cheap system either.

Bullhorn is well suited for large recruitments firms wherein there are upwards of 200 employees and it will not be favourable to use Bullhorn if there are just 40-50 active users. Bullhorn is suited when the organization doesnt want to invest in multiple tools like Monster resume search, Careerbuilder, Dice Resume and use just one system and get all the other portals integrated.

Bullhorn is generally easy to use and navigate within. It's straightforward and clear on how to find and input information. The set-up of the system is much easier than more complicated system, but it is less robust than other systems I have used. My biggest gripe with Bullhorn was that the submission process is not clear and cannot clearly tell the story of candidate submissions and is not good at tracking those. Or perhaps, we were just not good about following the process or setting it up accurately. There was also not good enough functionality for multiple recruiters being tied to multiple jobs. The dashboard could've been better. I was not involved on the accounting/commission side of things, but to my knowledge it wasn't great at linking commissions and had to be done outside of the system.

As a recruitment company Bullhorn is our main system of record for all that we do; recruiting & sales. In addition, it allows us to report on activity, have insight into the effectiveness and efficiency of our recruiting teams. Being software developed specifically for the staffing industry you can, for the most part, use it right off the shelf. However, it's highly customizable to match your current workflow.

It is a good ATS for Recruiting and Account Managers. Easy to connect with others and keep everyone up to date with integration to your Gmail or email account. Good user interface and once you figure it out it is easy to navigate. Love the resume parsing feature, this alone is priceless.

It's a fantastic product and has been around a long time. The developers have great support and know what they are doing, unlike most bullhorns competition. They are always pushing upgrades and the platform is super easy to navigate. It's a real game-changer if you can afford it that is.

Bullhorn helps to follow-up recruitment process easily after a submission (cf submission tab). However, previously during prescreen and messages left, it's just a lot of notes. It would be better to have in one simple list all the candidates contacted.
Which can be difficult is to make the link between similar project. Yes, we can search by jobs, go into the job, then in notes, but be able to run a more complex search to say I want all the similar jobs as... and have a list of all the persons contacted & status (not reply, message left, submission...) would save a precious time.

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.
