Jobvite has exceeded expectations!

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Simple distribution of jobs to various job boards.
  • Excellent user interface and very simple for new users to learn.
  • Customization tools make it easy to make changes to application
  • Candidates are not required to create an account when submitting applications. Greatly speeds up the process and lowers our drop off rate considerably.
  • Robust, simple reporting feature.
  • Like to see a mass update option for assigning recruiters, hiring managers, etc., or making changes to a large number of requisitions at once.
  • Wish that texting option was a standard feature and not a pricey add-on.

Good value for the cost. Great team members, and commitment to innovation

Pros and Cons

  • Customization - Easy to create customized workflows and templates.
  • Ease of use - all our users have an easy time logging into the system and using it with minimal assistance.
  • Reporting - As the administrator, we can rely on Jobvite reporting to accurately reflect our activity. They take a while to get used to, but once you are able to create one report, you learn how to create others.
  • Navigation - Admin page can be challenging to understand. I think there is some room for improvement on the way things are identified (i.e. Hire vs. Communications, Configurations, etc.) I always have to search what I'm looking for or access the community for answers.
  • The ability to disable candidate application emails by requisition. Some of my managers prefer not to receive these in their inbox vs. others that have a strong preference. Would be nice if we could disable by req.
  • User Permissions. Schedulers don't have access to perform all their required tasks. For example, a scheduler cannot actually schedule in some cases. Additionally, if you don't want them to see comp info in the candidates application, there isn't a way to control this. I've had to disable my scheduler's access (our receptionist) for this reason and can no longer use his help.

Pros and Cons

  • Jobvite invites us to easily share information with the managers in the field. We are spread out through the US and Canada, and this makes communication within the field so easy.
  • Jobvite allows us to easily promote our jobs to social media automatically. It saves us so much time and keeps it consistent.
  • The integration of Canvas is amazing. It's so easy to text our candidates and keep the information flowing.
  • It would be great if, when you set an interview, you could send the invitation to multiple managers at one time.

Jobvite is the best rated ATS for a reason

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to leverage the platform to connect all of your users and their social networks to promote your jobs.
  • Very easy to use interface for users, leaders, and applicants.
  • Greatly improves the candidate experience.
  • Integration with LinkedIn is a game-changer.
  • Reporting could be a bit more robust, especially with custom reports, but they are working on that now with some improvements coming out soon.
  • More customization with security for roles would be great. Restrict or open up what managers can or cannot see etc.
  • Doing more to ensure there are no duplicate entries, meaning, the same people with different profiles in the system.

  • It offers a lot of personalization.
  • You can communicate to the candidate or the managers involved in the process through the app.
  • Offer letters don't always send properly.
  • Would be easier to make categories with candidates from different applications.
  • The notes from one candidate should be saved to all the applications that he/she has, that way we can track them easier.

Cost Effective and Reasonably Feature-rich

Pros and Cons

  • Sharing jobs on job boards and social media.
  • Intuitive use and administration.
  • Collaborate with recruiting colleagues on candidate statuses, moving candidates through the process.
  • User access control - The ability to restrict certain recruiters to access requisitions and candidates associated with their office, country, or region.
  • Is application-centric vs candidate-centric. If I search for John Smith, it looks like there at 10 John smiths in results, whereas in reality there is one who has applied to 10 jobs.
  • Ability to integrate with multiple instances of Office365 for calendar/interview booking reasons.

Pros and Cons

  • Visibility is good, and Jobvite really stands out in its graphic design.
  • The interface is easy to use and intuitive, which in turn feels like its helping productivity.
  • Lastly, the statistics and summary options are frequently used as a measure and analysis or our hiring process.
  • As an applicant tracking system, there could be options to improve functionality with our payroll system.
  • Having more options for a summary of recruiters, using these summaries as KPIs.
  • Automating a lot of the recording options would be nice.

Pros and Cons

  • Jobvite allows users to configure it to match the branding of the recruiting firm, thereby providing the same look and feel as the company's main portal.
  • Providing us visibility into the entire applicant tracking process makes it a huge win for our company.
  • We've seen issues where people who are trying to access the job listings on their mobile phones see the loading bar for a long time without the results actually appearing.
  • Using filters to narrow down job listings can be buggy sometimes as well.

Solid tool and upgrades, but always room for improvement.

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Reporting tools. You can create customized reports in this ATS from candidates in your current pipelines in certain requisitions to offer declines over a past year.
  • Scheduling Tool. Jobvite integrates Google Calendar which makes it easy to schedule interviews in Jobvite itself.
  • Social Recruiting. You can easily post positions out to your LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter network.
  • Tech support via chat. There are some instances when it takes awhile for a representative to help out via chat.
  • When modifying a interview schedule, I wish the tool would automatically update the schedule when I make a change to one person on the list.
