Compas is good as an ATS but could be a better tool with more payroll related tools.Compas is currently being used in our three branches. The company has been growing really quick lately and keeping up with the employee history was becoming an issue. With the expected rotation at our clients locations, Compas has become our go-to tool to make sure we keep track of every action and situation that happens with our employees, Compas also has some good add-ons that allow us to integrate its features to Google Chrome and makes it easier to track email and adding all the pertinent info into the employees history.,The Google Chrome integration allows to have total control over the communications and sends the registry to Compas immediately. Also allows sending Google mail directly from the Compas app. Allows to keep track of the whole work history and experience of each one of the employees, start dates, interviews, pay rates and termination reasons, as well as to send mass emails and text messages to employees. It's fully customizable if you need to add a specific feature their support and is responsive and allows the intended customization. It is a great reporting tool. You can track the performance and activities of your recruiters, make sure they are doing the pertinent contacts and follow-ups and complete their assigned tasks, also allows pulling reports on employees placed on assignment.,It doesn't allow for much control on changes that are done. All employees have access to modify other employees information, it has an audit trail and would show who made the changes and what the previous information was even if these are easily fixed situations. It has led to confusion with the misuse of some of the employees in our company. It should have better integration with more payroll systems. They are currently offering some integration but it is not possible to fully integrate unless the payroll system is part of the compatible ones. When a candidate applies from Indeed or any other job search engine, their resume tend to be modified and some dates get into the wrong places, so their parsing system should get some improvement, or at least allow to update the file that has been uploaded.,9,Having the ability to post as many ads as possible for a fixed price each month is a great way of strongly staffing without spending the extra money. We used to spend more money a month when we used to post in Zip-recruiter directly. It stores a lot of good functions to make sure each employee in our branches is doing the different calls and follow-ups they need to be doing daily, and it has helped the company improve personnel performance to 30%. The Company has centralized all the employees' info into one system and it allows to improve the response and the times in response.,Slack, Google Drive, Google VoiceCompas and Gmail are friends and we like thatCompas is being used as our ATS at Rdio. HR and hiring managers are the only people who have access to the system. Compass helps us organize and track our applications so we can attract top talent and grow our company.,Integration with Gmail really helps us track messages between candidates and keep tabs of all our pipelines. The resume parsing feature is really great and does a pretty accurate job of pulling the data from candidate resumes so that uploading new applicants is quick and easy. The offer letter approval process feature that is built in is a great way for us to systemize the approval of offers and make sure it funnels into the appropriate channels.,If candidates submit a cover letter, it is only accessible through the "docs" tab. Or if they are nominated to the Hiring Manager and then the attachments come through. Other than that, there is no easy way to tell if a candidate has submitted a cover letter other than manually opening each candidate profile up. It would be nice if Hiring Managers could see if there is a cover letter attachment in the pipeline overview. Emails aren't syncing properly from Gmail. I wish that once we sent a candidate a Gmail from Compass that all subsequent threads/ replies would be tracked in Compass so it would be all in on place.. easy to reference. You can't move applicants from pipeline to the nominated status. It would be nice if there was most flexibility between moving candidates from pipeline to pipeline and to the nominated status.,7,Doubled company size in a year (less than a year using compass). 50+ new hires globally.,Jobvite,Bullhorn Applicant Tracking System,Bullhorn Reach

Compas is currently being used in our three branches. The company has been growing really quick lately and keeping up with the employee history was becoming an issue. With the expected rotation at our clients locations, Compas has become our go-to tool to make sure we keep track of every action and situation that happens with our employees, Compas also has some good add-ons that allow us to integrate its features to Google Chrome and makes it easier to track email and adding all the pertinent info into the employees history.
  • The Google Chrome integration allows to have total control over the communications and sends the registry to Compas immediately. Also allows sending Google mail directly from the Compas app.
  • Allows to keep track of the whole work history and experience of each one of the employees, start dates, interviews, pay rates and termination reasons, as well as to send mass emails and text messages to employees.
  • It's fully customizable if you need to add a specific feature their support and is responsive and allows the intended customization.
  • It is a great reporting tool. You can track the performance and activities of your recruiters, make sure they are doing the pertinent contacts and follow-ups and complete their assigned tasks, also allows pulling reports on employees placed on assignment.
  • It doesn't allow for much control on changes that are done. All employees have access to modify other employees information, it has an audit trail and would show who made the changes and what the previous information was even if these are easily fixed situations. It has led to confusion with the misuse of some of the employees in our company.
  • It should have better integration with more payroll systems. They are currently offering some integration but it is not possible to fully integrate unless the payroll system is part of the compatible ones.
  • When a candidate applies from Indeed or any other job search engine, their resume tend to be modified and some dates get into the wrong places, so their parsing system should get some improvement, or at least allow to update the file that has been uploaded.
Compas is the perfect tool to track and post jobs, also a great tool to track and follow up on candidates. It is also a great way of getting metrics for the recruiter's performance.
It has to improve their payroll tools and integration. It is hard to follow up on markups and pay rates.

Compas is more appropriate for internal recruiting teams than outside agencies. It has an easy way to share applicants with hiring managers. The internal offer letter approval feature is helpful in pushing an offer through the appropriate channels.
