ClearCompany offers a wide variety of services however our company primarily used the software for performance management. We took advantage of ClearCompany's expertise to take our paper evaluation system to an electronic interface and had great results. The implementation team loved the easy setup and the managers loved the intuitive interface. ClearCompany's customer service goes above and beyond!
  • Customer service.
  • User friendly.
  • Doesn't communicate with our other systems.
  • 2-year contracts.
I can only speak to performance evaluations but I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Great for all types of evaluations (360, self, manager to direct report) as well as for conducting new-hire check-ins and stay interviews. Seems to have a great platform for applicant tracking, too. Their customer support team does a great job of creating a plan to fit your business needs.

We use ClearCompany to post open positions for our district, application tracking, and onboarding.
  • Track applicant as our hiring teams review and interview.
  • Onboarding paperwork is all in one place.
  • We recently had difficulty with our contract agreement.
  • Cost is prohibitive for small companies.
ClearCompany helped our human resources go digital.

We use ClearCompany with all departments and
markets at TAK Communications. Our managers, supervisors, support staff
and HR team members love how user-friendly it is. The texting feature is
the reason we also stay with ClearCompany. We have another HRIS
that has an ATS in it but because they don’t have a texting option, we choose
to stay with ClearCompany.
  • User-friendly.
  • Texting features to reach candidates faster.
We use ClearCompany for recruitment but have also used it for onboarding in the past. It's great for both!

ClearCompany is being used by our whole organization for hiring. We only use the ATS portion of Clear Company.
  • Fast and helpful Customer Service.
  • User-Friendly for all who use it.
  • None
Clear Company is always keeping up with upgrades to make sure the system is as user-friendly as it can be.

We currently use ClearCompany to help manage our performance evaluation process. It is used throughout the entire organization throughout 4 different divisions. The system provides a platform for our employees and their managers to have structured conversations around development and career accomplishments.
  • Implementation Manager, Strategic Advisor, and Customer Success Managers do their jobs extraordinarily well. Their commitment to successful implementation has exceeded all expectations.
  • Performance evaluation processes within the system make a lot of sense. Checkpoints are easy to follow and complete.
  • They are still a young organization so further development of the platform to handle customer issues is needed such as being able to customize layouts or engage peer feedback.
Small to mid-sized organizations that do not have internal development staff would love this tool. It gets the job done. Their applicant tracking system is further along than performance management but they continue to grow and increase in functionality.

We have been using Clear Company for recruiting and employee onboarding.
  • A neat and organized way of tracking applicants.
  • An excellent way of keeping track of a candidate's history and timeline.
  • Multiple people cannot edit on-boarding documents.
  • On-boarding is buggy and you encounter fairly frequent errors.
Recruiting and applicant tracking are great for the most part. Onboarding is not.

We use ClearCompany as our applicant tracking software to funnel any/all candidates that apply within our company into one area. This helps to limit the number of websites our HR team has to utilize (indeed, zip, monster, etc.) and keeps everything in one core area for easy access and workflow. It has eliminated repetitive responses by allowing for a bulk reply to numerous candidates who apply. The different workflows (which you can customize) keep candidates organized and moving quickly through our application and background check process.
  • Provides one stop for all job posting sites.
  • Organized workflows which are able to be customized.
  • Client relationships with job posting engines seem to lack.
  • Grading scales could be a bit more robust.
Overall, ClearCompany has been a useful tool for our Company to streamline our applicant tracking process. We like having all of our applicants/candidates in one central location online vs. numerous different job engine websites, and having to access 5+ various job boards to review candidates. We do receive a few complaints regarding the ease of use from our management team. We were with a different applicant tracking system prior, and they seemed to like that a bit better. ClearCompany has made many improvements since we've been with them. They have excited their interview scheduling process and made specific changes within the administrative task area that allows for easier bulk replies, navigation, etc. We do find that they are the middle man when it comes to client relations between the larger job engines (indeed, zip recruiter), and when there is a problem posting a job to zip recruiters site to be specific, solutions are few and far between. We still have an ongoing problem with our candidates being automatically moved into a particular workflow when they don't complete their phase one application, which is causing more manual work on our part.

ClearCompany is being used by the Recruiting staff in the HR department. Access to the system has not been made available to anyone outside of the department.
  • Customization
  • Ease of use
  • Update list of scraper sites
ClearCompany’s customer service is excellent. You have a dedicated Account Manager who is quick to respond and is an excellent resource for improving the utilization of the system. The system itself is user-friendly and intuitive, but there are also additional training tools within the system. You can also be set for webinars to get familiar with everything.

ClearCompany is used as our ATS for all hourly and professional position openings. It helps us advertise critical staffing needs across the organization. We also utilize reporting functions to forecast future needs and aged requisitions in conjunction with our budget. ClearCompany is also used to communicate internal opportunities which assist us with Succession Planning.
  • Dedicated staff to assist with implementation and questions; a Messenger option for businesses to connect with representatives
  • Text and email interview request functionality for added convenience for employers to contact prospective candidates
  • Less expensive ATS option for smaller companies
  • Implementation can be very lengthy and not always feasible for companies looking for a speedy integration
  • Functionality of program overall is very antiquated.
  • Response time is typically okay, but the time frame for resolutions to issues with the system can be over a span of weeks.
  • Not as user-friendly as other comparable ATS; missing a lot of basic bells and whistles that make the system easy to navigate.
ClearCompany has a lot of new features that assist companies in keeping up with the changing landscape of online recruitment of qualified candidates. It is easily linked to job boards such as Indeed and has options like email interview requests and texting, which assist recruiters to touch more candidates in less time.

ClearCompany is not for larger companies that have hundreds of hourly positions i.e. Retail Industry. It doesn't have adequate reporting or tracking of candidates' statuses, which are key for companies that size, since they usually have 20+ recruiters and members of talent acquisition. Our company recently fully staffed our recruitment team to 6 members and we are already having issues with the functionality and our number of seats, but the resolution has been longer than desired from ClearCompany.

We use ClearCompany to fill our recruiting and onboarding needs, primarily with everything related to talent acquisition. It allows us to post to more than 30 job boards, and also allows our team to effectively manage and track our candidate's statuses, notes and, workflow throughout the onboarding process. Our HR team is able to sign into this cloud-based software and can run reports, post requisitions, update notes and more.
  • Real-time updates shared across the software with remote users. It allows us to effectively manage and track candidates workflows and status within the onboarding process. This helps us effectively communicate and keep hooks in the candidate without having them fall through the cracks.
  • ClearCompany is able to customize and report to fit our company. We are in a particular industry where our time to fill, hiring costs and other metrics vary from time to time. In order to get an accurate report, ClearCompany has gone above and beyond to customize our reports and give us the data we need with a click of a button.
  • ClearCompany is always in constant communication and willing to assist. The feedback from the support team is almost instantaneous. I have the direct number to my customer care agent and her manager as well. It's nice to know they are there to help at a moment's notice. The support team has a great chat feature that allows me to send a message while i'm on the phone. They are quick to respond and always friendly.
  • The newly revised interface has been helpful but at first, was difficult to navigate. Once I knew where everything had moved to, it was very easy to navigate through the menus and options.
  • There isn't much else that i'd like to add to this. All of my previous issues have been resolved or shown to me. I don't have anything negative to say about ClearCompany!
The security guard services industry is very fluid and always changing. Our company is growing at rapid pace and it's comforting to know that I have a program in ClearCompany that allows me to customize my requisitions to fit our new accounts across the country. I'm able to target specific areas based on zip code that will post to sites such as Indeed, Glassdoor, LinkUp, ZipRecruiter, Monster, and our Facebook page. These mediums allow us to cast a wider net and attract qualified candidates in specific areas. It gives our company the edge over competitors who have historically failed at attracting top quality talent. I absolutely love using ClearCompany!

We are a recruiting and consulting company and we use ClearCompany for our ATS. As a Recruiter myself, I use it everyday to review resumes, schedule interviews and document the process.
  • Scheduling Interviews. My favorite thing about ClearCompany is the ability to schedule interviews, and send candidates a list of times that I am available and have them select the most convenient option. It eliminates a lot of back and forth correspondence, and automatically puts appointments on my calendar.
  • We love the option to have candidates complete a video interview portion. You can customize the questions and it makes it a more personal experience.
  • One of our biggest struggles is managing duplicate applications within ClearCompany, which is very common.
  • We also have lots of applicants struggle with technical difficulties with completing the videos if they have multiple applications.
ClearCompany is great for staffing and recruiting firms, or corporations. You can view requisitions by client, or by position, and can grant access to hiring managers.

We use HRM Direct for our full-cycle recruitment process which includes onboarding for the entire company. The system is fairly user friendly for us as users. We have some issues with the applicant process as the system is not mobile friendly and makes applicants think they completed an application when they really didn't which results is missing application information (contact info).
  • Ease of use
  • Workflow system adaptable to the company
  • Job postings with the use of Job Target
  • We like being able to post individual/specific positions
  • Mobile capability
  • Locked fields requiring specific information
  • Tailor to specific industries
  • More reporting mechanisms would be nice - or training on how to use what is available
  • It would be nice to have a mobile friendly app process
  • It would be nice to include the background screening process from within
HRM Direct is a fairly easy system to use. We solely work in transportation so we have to adapt ourselves to the system instead of the other way around. Working with the support staff is easy and they try their best to get us what we need.

About ClearCompany

HRM Direct is a cloud-based ATS developed by Clear Company, based in Boston.This product offers the full suite of features typical of applicant tracking systems: batch or mass communication with potential candidates via multiple channels such as email or by leveraging its integration with social networking sites (e.g. LinkedIn) and commonly used applications (e.g. Outlook), instantaneous posting to multiple job boards, and resume parsing. It also has extensive background checking features and approval process integration to facilitate internal communications between recruiters and hiring managers, and other features of particular interest to companies with well-established hiring procedures. Add to this that HRM can readily handle post-hire needs with onboarding automation and a rarer “social producivity” app, this platform is geared to suit the needs of medium-sized or larger companies and established institutions. Transitioning and implementation is supported via live robust direct customer support and success consulting. A live demonstration is available to familiarize potential buyers with the platform.
