Our company experienced rapid growth and we needed an ATS that could keep up with our needs. Jobvite allows for a great deal of customization that we couldn't find with any other applicant tracking systems. Being able to tailor this software to our needs has allowed us to automate several administrative tasks that we big time wasters for us before. Jobvite has been a life-saver. We have a small talent acquisition staff that manages all of our positions and time is a very valuable resource for us.
  • Allows for customization to each company's needs
  • Saves time by automating administrative tasks
  • Initial set-up is a very complicated process. Jobvite provided us with an implementation specialist who walked us through each step of the process. But it is a huge undertaking, and companies need to be aware of the time investment they are making.
  • Support has been a bit rocky. Answers are slow to come, and often unhelpful. Our account representative is our go-to and we try to avoid support whenever possible.
This software is amazing if you take the time to set things up and make it work the right way for your company. If you are expecting a plug-and-play software, Jobvite is not for you. The auto-scheduling feature is amazing! I can request availability from a candidate, have them respond, and have the system automatically schedule the interview all within a minute. It makes it so easy and keeps things organized.

We use Jobvite as our ATS, CRM, Careers Site, and Onboarding partner. The use cases are pipeline/candidate management, social marketing, and delivery and communication about required documents/steps post-offer.
  • Transparency - hiring managers and recruiters can see the full activity/status/communication with a candidate.
  • Candidate management - the workflow helps manage your pipeline, especially with a high number of applications.
  • Careers site - our site is beautiful and effective.
  • Customization - workflows, forms, communications, etc. all customizable.
  • Onboarding suite - can build custom forms (and use out of the box forms, too) to have new hires complete required paperwork.
  • Onboarding - many fields can transfer automatically from the hiring side to the onboarding side of the system, but not all of them.
  • ATS - the structure of candidate applications (one candidate profile, but each application for each job has it's own record/info) can cause some minor inconveniences, but Jobvite has mitigated them.
We're a large, multi-entity healthcare system with thousands of applications each month and Jobvite has been incredibly helpful in managing that volume and complexity.

  • Manage initial input
  • Hold years of information
  • Integrate with SkillSurvey

  • Ease of use
  • They need a customer service update
  • Software Engineering team needs education
Jobvite is a great ATS. When there are issues they force you to put a ticket in and then the ticket is closed even when the issue is still there. They use to have customer services reps that worked on your account and helped you with issues. It's all automated now and you feel as though you are not being heard when you need help.

We use Jobvite as our primary Applicant Tracking System. It also gives us a career landing page.
  • Recruiting Flow.
  • Ease of opening job requisitions.
  • Candidate Communication with not just email.
  • Process flow and customization.
  • More job sponsorships in the platform.
Jobvite is a good applicant tracking system. It takes a good amount of time to set up so it is not a plug and play option like some others. It is well suited for companies that need an applicant tracking system that has allows candidates to apply easily and capture most information.

We use it as an ATS primarily. It tracks applications, requisitions, potential future candidates, offers, approvals, and the entire hiring process up until the point of onboarding.
  • Integrate with DocuSign, GoodHire, and other programs.
  • Customer support.
  • Candidate communication visible to all hiring team.
  • Cost of texting service - included with other services.
  • Better job description database capabilities.
  • Integrate with Paylocity.
We use Jobvite to keep up with applicants, as well as potential candidates in the pipeline, and it's very efficient for keeping up with candidate communications. I do strongly wish it included a better job database system so that I didn't need a whole separate service for that (or multiple Word docs, etc).

Jobvite is used as a Human resources acquisition tool. We use it to assist us with the onboarding of new hires or even transitions of employees into new roles. It helps limit the number of emails between two individuals and allows there to be a portal for an individual to access when they need information or need to update information.
  • user friendly
  • notifications are instant
  • helps organize data
  • more features
  • better reporting
  • more admin access
Jobvite was very useful when used to onboard our new hires. Being a Human capital management company, we hire many individuals on a weekly basis so it helps us keep all of the paperwork organized and prevent any accidents when managing all of the data. Sometimes it does pose a problem for those who are not technologically savvy.

Among One of the Best ATS

We implemented Jobvite at our organization to support our recruiting process. The system was used by all of our organization from our executive team to our individual contributors as Jobvite allows for everyone to participate in the recruiting process. All capabilities are customizable therefore if we preferred to have some jobs be confidential, we were able to do so. We also appreciated that the workflows were also able to mirror our internal processes and had the option to integrate the system with our other HR systems.
  • Customizable workflows
  • User-friendly
  • Reporting
  • Integrations
  • Cost
Jobvite is best suited for organizations that are mid to large-sized as the cost for additional integrations can add up. Additionally, if you have minimum requisitions open at a time, this may not be the most cost-effective option for your business.

We use the Jobvite text platform for my company's recruitment communication and AI applicant/candidate administrative task completion. AI programming is easy to do with drag and drop API language. You can program multiple lines of code for the bot to run and send out messages either that moment or throughout the week on your timeframe.
  • Customer service.
  • Technical knowledge.
  • Industry trends.
  • Product knowledge.
  • Adapting to change
  • More product training.
  • Introduction of new trends and how JV is scaling to match those trends.
  • Product SME's and evangelists for their services (more needed) to help clients learn about the product options.
  • Better trading on AI chat bot programming with more drag and drop commands
Well suited for mid to small companies that are working from having no tech to getting tech in the door to help with the recruiting efforts. More attention is needed to the end line customer after the sale with account managers that are knowledgable of the product lines. The more we work in AI integrations with mobile technologies the better. This works great for getting started on a path to less administrative work.

Jobvite was rolled out as a new applicant tracking system for primary use in our Human Resources department. We've given employees the ability to share job postings, and hiring managers the ability to see applicants for their own open positions -- so in a sense, it's being used by the entire organization. It helps us streamline the application process and the candidate experience, and ultimately hire quicker and more efficiently.
  • Sharing job postings is great. Spreading the word to internal and external networks of our job postings is great to get exposure and create awareness that we might not otherwise be able to do.
  • Allows access for managers to see their own applicants to their own positions. This saves us recruiters time to do other pressing projects, while allowing managers to not wait for recruiters to get around to viewing their applicants. It cuts down on wait times.
  • The layout and user interface is streamlined, easy to follow, and easy to use. This helps those that are less tech-savvy figure out the system quicker and cuts down on redundant steps for us recruiters, so it saves time and wasted efforts.
  • Some of the functions and commands could be more linear, rather than taking you out of the logical step in a process and then having to back-track. This isn't a huge issue, but there are times where you have to back out or close something in order to get to the next thing.
  • The wait time after clicking on an icon or doing a command is sometimes unusually slow. If I click on an applicant's profile to see information or a resume, it can take 10 or more seconds for the system to process and bring up a new window. This issue has been raised by my company, but so far no solution has been rolled out.
  • Some of the self-guided tutorials and webinars could be shortened or made more interactive to ensure the content is retained.
Jobvite is good for all employees of an organization to share job postings on their professional and personal networks. Word of mouth and spreading information is much easier with Jobvite now. Also, allowing managers to see their own applicants for their own open roles is useful, as they don't have to wait for us. It's not as appropriate for those that might be less tech-savvy, as there are some learning curves and an abundance of customizations that may overwhelm some.

We use Jobvite as our primary Applicant Tracking System. Every full time employee of the company is given a user account and our managers use it to sort through candidates to narrow down prospective employees. It helps our recruiters track all their resumes, applicants, and manager expectations with their hiring managers.
  • Tracks each applicant's files individually, helps us stay organized and pull up information quickly.
  • Tracks all of our templates and helps our ops team generate the correct contracts.
  • Syncs well with Workday - all of the information streams from one system to the other smoothly.
  • The reports are hard to follow and use, a bit clunky.
  • Sometimes the system works slowly.
If you want a simple to use system to organize your applicant files, Jobvite is a great resource.

We use it across our organization. Our talent acquisition work is slice realized, so across all functions it is used. My team is responsible for managing its use. The business problems it addresses are giving managers access and visibility to their applications. It lets them review candidates and communicate with them. I am also a fan of the feature that allows us to post our jobs to other places. That aspect of it makes things easy and seamless. The other business problem it solves is serving as an ATS. Since we have used it for so long, we can now review candidates from many previous positions. That is great for us. We have candidates who will apply years prior, and we can go back and look at their application and information about their candidacy to determine if we are interested in moving forward with them. i love that part of it. The only other business problem I would say it addresses is onboarding. We use the onboard feature and get to make more seamless the process of having new hires complete their paperwork quickly and easily and digitally. So that’s what I would say about our experience using this product.
  • Integration with onboarding
  • Candidate history over time and across other applications
  • User-friendly
  • The user interface is not ideal. It feels vert antiquated
  • Scheduling things like phone screens or interviews is not easy/calendar integration tools are poor
  • Haven’t kept up with other ATSs that are doing interesting work around blinding resumes/adding features around bias mitigation
Jobvite is good for those who are looking for a cost-effective option. It certainly satisfies any basic needs someone would have or need through an applicant tracking system.

Where it does not do as well as in its interface. It’s clunky and difficult to navigate, especially for those who are new to it. I think it takes some real getting used to and not everyone has the time for that.

We are currently using Jobvite as our ATS across the whole company in all of our locations. This helps us keep our applications, job postings, and candidate information all in one place. It is very user friendly!
  • It is great at personalizing user experiences for each type of user we have.
  • Very customizable!
  • Easy to add locations or delete locations.
  • Easy to update job descriptions.
  • So far I haven’t found anything I would want to change!
Jobvite works well for us because of the ability to customize everything. We have used other systems where everything (user access, job descriptions, reports, etc.) have to be the same across the board. With Jobvite, we can change and customize things at each location we have. I also like that we can do Offer Letters for all new hires through the system. Contacting individuals through Jobvite is simple as well. It really is a great system!

I love Jobvite! We currently use it to garner external candidate pools, display internal openings, screen and move candidates through the hiring phases, submit offers of employment, onboard new teammates, track data pertaining to hiring, run campaigns, and track employee referrals (across the entire organization). Jobvite is clean cut and user friendly for both internal and external users, and the Customer Support Managers we have been placed with have always been responsive, helpful, and proactive about any updates or concerns that we have named. Jobvite has made many of our company policies and processes easier to streamline and share out with our larger organization, and is used cross-team by our Finance, HR, Credential, and Recruitment teams seamlessly to share responsibility and fidelity to equitable practices.
  • User friendly for both internal and external users.
  • There is so much that you can adjust or modify to suit your org or team's specific needs.
  • The application process is seamless from start to finish with Jobvite including applying, application screening, changing statuses, recording notes, messaging candidates, submitting/sending offers, signing/accepting offers, onboarding, and hiring.
  • Building reports feels a little clunky, and often requires more support, but we do not need to use this too often, as once reports are built they are mainly untouched.
  • At times it is difficult to submit tickets with Jobvite, as it often takes a long time for Jobvite support to understand what the need is and to resolve an issue.
  • We have also had some issues with consistency of what Jobvite support does for us vs. what we have to do on our own. These issues have only arisen in the last few months.
We have benefited from the organized and clean cut applicant tracking system and easy to use onboarding system, and have been able to find a more efficient way to conduct an employee referral program using Jobvite, as well as streamline our processes for hiring. Jobvite has proven to be well suited as an Applicant Tracking System, regardless of any slight needs for adjustment in streamlining it with another program we use in UltiPro (which, to be fair, is clunky in and of itself).

Jobvite is used across the organization, mainly used within the People Team (Human Resources) as an ATS and Onboarding system.
  • Applicant tracking.
  • Sharing candidate details - The ability to share candidate information across teams and hiring managers is a huge plus.
  • Candidate screening / video interviewing is a big time saver.
  • Campaigns and integrations into social media could be better.
For a company that does large volume recruitment Jobvite is very well equipped to making recruitment teams efficient and effective. Jobvite is well equipped to support pipelining and at all stages of the candidate lifecycle, from outreach and cultivation to hire and onboarding.

We use Jobvite as our applicant tracking system across the organization. It is also used as our career site to list current opportunities for applicants.
  • Easy application process for applicants.
  • Easy to move candidates through interview process.
  • Tracks all communication with candidates so team members can also view messages.
  • Prescheduling drip-communications for automatic follow ups on interview requests.
  • easier customized reports.
  • Job alerts are location specific and cannot be used by multiple locations in one region.
Jobvite seems to work well for small and medium sized businesses that want multiple team members to be involved in the hiring process and be able to view candidate communications. It is a good tool for collecting interview feedback and allowing multiple people in recruiting to work together on moving candidates through the hiring process.

It is currently used in our Clinical Recruitment Department as an ATS. I love how easy it is to use and the archive it creates of candidates. You encounter a lot of repetitive candidates in our field so having that historical contact information is critical as well as previous email and notes from previous interactions.
  • Workflow- I love that you can immediately see where in the process a candidate is.
  • Dashboard- The customization and overall feel of the site.
  • Feed- The fact that you can see the feed from the candidates other applications is a plus.
  • Primarily the analytics they have worked on this recently but it does take some deep diving to really understand how to put it to use.
  • Knowledge Base- Easier search criteria.
  • Back Button- For some reason my browser does not like when I want to go back, a lot of time I just start over.
I have recently worked with another ATS and Jobvite by far is more cost effective, user friendly, and overall easier on the eyes. The other system was clunky, had a lot of workarounds, and was not easily navigated. Jobvite reacts quickly, allows for a smooth transition in the processes and lifecycle of a candidate. I also love the text recruit feature. So nice to see where a conversation left off and how to pick it back up.

Jobvite is set up for all active employees in the company, though it's mostly used by our Talent Team and those who are part of interview teams. Any active employee in the company can (and is encouraged to) use Jobvite to post jobs externally to their own social networks. <br><br>We use Jobvite to address needs related to recruiting and onboarding new employees. By setting up the Jobvite Onboarding module, they have helped us solve the problem of manually entering new hire data into our main HRIS. We now have a file that can be audited and imported directly into our HRIS.
  • Standard ATS module is efficient and fairly customizable.
  • It's fairly easy to add new custom fields, although those less familiar with the system should reach out to support to confirm they're setting up fields in the correct way to ensure there are no "trickle down" effects.
  • Our assigned Customer Success Manager is fantastic and a great partner to work with on issues and new initiatives.
  • Their knowledge base is pretty extensive, and I like that I can submit product feedback/suggestions and upvote any suggestions already created.
  • Reporting is awful. They updated their reporting structure and it is *not* the most efficient. We've always had issues with Jobvite reporting, and while some things have improved, others got worse.
  • We lost the ability to run certain fields, or even entire reports, due to Jobvite no longer letting us pull data that's obviously available in the system. I don't know why we can't pull data *we gather* in our system, and I haven't been able to get a solid answer on it other than "we just can't do that anymore."
  • They've also removed the ability to share a report with a single user, which is a hindrance when we have confidential or restricted information we need to share. I don't want to set up individual user roles, set up a reporting folder, and have to move a report over to that folder, especially if it's a report they previously had access to prior to moving over to the new reporting system.
  • Jobvite support is really hit or miss. Some support employees are extremely helpful, actually listen to the issue, and provide assistance accordingly. Others seem to skip over questions and facts entirely, answer from a predefined script, and "solve" an issue that wasn't even being asked.
  • There are also often *very* long wait times for chat support (I'm talking an average 30-45 minutes waiting to ask a simple question - at that point, why even have the feature?).
  • I'd like to see better integration and setup abilities between Onboarding and other systems. It's difficult to make necessary changes or updates without "breaking" something or having to use paid Jobvite services.
Jobvite is an excellent solution for basic ATS and Onboarding needs. The more customized you make it, the more you're probably going to run into issues. That being said, our Customer Success Manager is fantastic and does their best to make sure we're using Jobvite to the best extent possible, or at least moving in the right direction. They're very good at sending out notifications on new features, and their knowledge base and client community tends to pretty helpful when running into basic issues.

Our entire organization uses Jobvite - employees who refer their contacts to positions, administrative assistants who support their departmental hiring processes, managers who make hiring decisions for their area, executives who approve positions, and human resources employees who oversee the process. We've seen an increase in employee engagement in the recruiting process, our applicants appreciate the ease of the application process, and our hiring managers enjoy the ease of using the system.
  • Updates to the system based on user needs.
  • Customer support.
  • Data available for reporting.
  • Would like video interview to automatically move to completed status.
Great for organizations where employees are advocates and a strong referral source. Flexible to meet a variety of hiring processes - you're likely to be able to implement your current hiring process - and consider best practices you may want to consider adopting. Jobvite employees are knowledgeable and truly helpful in the implementation process.

We implemented Jobvite to provide better visibility and metrics into our recruiting process. In addition, we added texting and video capabilities to increase candidate communications. We also love the scheduler and analytics. Jobvite also broadened our exposure to internal staff and allowed them to easily share our jobs on their social media. The requisition and offer management has allowed us to streamline the process significantly. We are also enjoying the flexibility of onboarding for remote staff.
  • Requesting candidate availability for scheduling
  • Approval processes
  • Candidate workflow
  • Incorporating real-time video interview links (like RingCentral) into the scheduling without cutting and pasting
  • Ability to send ad hoc candidate forms
  • Ability to set permissions based on data components (like locations or department)
  • Ability to have different internal vs external application processes/forms (also, the ability to forward application forms to candidates that come in through other means--like referred by a friend, added candidate, etc.)
  • Ability to customize the in-app apply form from within Jobvite (vs the career site apply page)
Jobvite is great for those looking for an overall well-rounded platform. It is less suited for those with a high level of internal applicants.

  • Custom fields--custom fields do not follow the candidate from hire to onboarding. This is problematic because we then have to recreate on the onboarding side to then import into our HRIS.
  • Onboarding picklists are time-consuming to populate. We have to enter options one at a time, rather than being able to do an import. Also, field mapping on Hire is a lot easier than having to set up tags on option sets in onboarding.
Jobvite is well suited to handle the hiring process. When you create a requisition, you can then put it on all social media sites, your career site, and you can then see the sourcing of your candidates in Jobvite with minimal effort. Users also really enjoy the fact we can keep email templates in the system, and notifications can be sent from Jobvite without having to create emails.

Jobvite is well suited for all businesses that have the resources (time, money, recruiters) to implement and use all its features. Maybe less appropriate for smaller businesses that don't have as much time to spend within the system each and every day. Jobvite takes a long time to fully implement and start using all its features. It kind of pigeon-holes you into extending your contract once it expires.
