We had two large hiring influxes over the last year that we needed a way to coordinate and funnel candidates through. Having thousands of applicants makes the funnel process super important and Lever helped us set this up. Lever also provided the job description pages that we had everyone apply through so that we had a standardized structure for applications
  • Funnels candidates from start to finish of the process
  • Allows for scheduling interview with candidates
  • Their scheduling tool is super rigid and doesn't support multiple interviewers very well
  • The product requires quite a bit of setup before it becomes as efficient as you'd like
Lever probably has too much overhead for a company of our size and we would frequently run into issues that would require an outsized amount of effort to resolve

We use Lever as our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) for candidates we're reaching out to or speaking with about open roles we're trying to fill. We have it integrated with LinkedIn Recruiter, as well as ContactOut to source personal emails and phone numbers. We also use their integration with Grayscale for SMS capability. We've found Lever easy to use, pretty intuitive, and the set-up has been fairly painless.
  • Scrape candidates from LinkedIn Recruiter directly into Lever.
  • Scheduling candidates for the various steps in their interview process is easy .
  • Creating scorecards for interviewers to use keeps the momentum going in the interview process.
  • Moving candidates through the various pipeline stages is simple.
  • Support. It's a hit or miss and when you're a new customer, this is unacceptable.
  • They need a task reminder feature native to Lever. This doesn't currently exist, and we have to use a third-party tool.
We don't have a large company, but based on what I've seen with Lever's capabilities, it has plenty of features and integration capability to serve a company with a hundred users or more.

Currently, we use Lever as our ATS to create a database of past, current, and future candidates we can assist with their job search. We utilize the email feature to keep all communication inside of Lever. It helps to solve the problem of being able to easily access candidates at any given time. We use Lever on a daily basis and also communicate internally using the @ mention feature. There are areas where additional features could allow us to remove the usage of supplemental software.
  • Allows you to track your talent pipeline according to the stage.
  • Communicate internally with team members
  • Large capacity for storing a lot of candidate data safely
  • We currently also use SeaTable as it allows us to see things like the date an interview was scheduled with a client. This additional feature would be amazing.
  • It would be great to have subcategories. For example, saying someone is at the onsite interview would be the first stage and the sub-category could be scheduling, to signify the interview is in the process of being scheduled.
  • We work with external clients so being able to internally track the offer details from the client would be a great additional feature so that we can have a fully comprehensive view of the candidate's interview funnel.
It is a great way to have a large repository of candidate information but it is harder to see the smaller details such as the date an interview was scheduled as well as subset stages for a more granular view when pulling up a report in the Visual Insights tool. This would make it a highly viable ATS and CRM.

We use Lever to organize and track applicants and candidates as they move through our interview process. We also used Lever as a recruiting CRM to create outreach email campaigns to engage candidates. It was the repository that held all candidate information and was also used to manage processes like offers, background checks, reference checks, etc.
  • Visualizes where candidates are in your interview funnel
  • Creates and manages email campaigns to reach out to talent
  • Integrates well with partner platforms like job boards, background checks, eSignature, etc.
  • It didn't manage ad spend when I used it but I believe they're adding that functionality soon.
  • I would have loved to have had a dedicated account manager to work with.
I would highly recommend Lever to a recruiter looking to bring on a new ATS platform. It's very well designed, visually intuitive, well-integrated with the partner ecosystem, candidates appear organized, and it has all the functionality necessary to scale as organizations get larger. One of the main reasons I prefer Lever over its competitors is that recruiter admin work in the platform goes much more quickly than in other systems. There is less clicking around to different views. One of the other main advantages Lever has is that it integrates with Gmail and Google Calendar in a way that allows 2-way sync on candidate emails and scheduled interviews arrive right on a candidate's calendar. This is not necessarily so with other ATSs.

Prior to Lever, we didn't have or use any ATS. Lever was not just a solution to a problem for us, but also the tool we planned to use to build, scale and grow our early stage, Series A startup. We went from using Airtable to track our applications and notes, to using Lever's full suite of offerings to manage top of funnel, pipeline, and hiring. We used Zenefits to send our offer letters. But Lever allowed us to create more efficient processes, provide stronger support and resources for our Hiring Managers, and most importantly, create a consistent, fair, and enjoyable experience for our candidates, whether we ended up hiring them or not.
  • The pipeline view for tracking our applicants is awesome - something that Greenhouse and others could work on a bit.
  • Reporting is strong - easy to create dashboards and ongoing reports to be sent out directly to stakeholders. Helps save a lot of time and create a data driven environment.
  • Onboarding and Customer Support - always the best and quickest replies. Onboarding was a breeze, they were super organized and on top of every single detail. Got us started on the right path and it was easy from there on our own!
  • Emails - being able to add a Signature would be massive. Not sure if that is something that has been added since we stopped using Lever (we got acquired by DoorDash, so we now use Greenhouse through their systems), but that was the reason I didn't send emails directly through Lever often at all - doesn't look professional without the signature.
  • Resume parsing - sometimes, it would take the incorrect info for the email or phone number, or just not pull anything at all when the info is clearly on the resume. So maybe working on how and what gets pulled from emails on applications, would be great.
  • The look and design of the standard career page is a bit bland. Totally understand branding it as Lever, but options to adjust or do more with it would be fun!
I think Lever is great for any sized company, but especially strong for smaller, growing teams. It's a very simple system, but clean, sleek, and very useful in any scenario. They have great support whenever you need it so those with smaller HR or People teams could easily benefit from their help. Can't think of too many scenarios where Lever wouldn't be well-suited, but maybe once you grow to International growth and hiring, it may be better to have a more Enterprise style business, set up for larger scaling.

We primarily use it to track candidates and use it for an internal database for applications. It's also a place where hiring teams can collaborate and gather feedback in one centralized system
  • Passive candidate tracking
  • Candidate nurture function
  • Visibility across all open reqs
  • Lever is incredibly difficult for hiring managers to get a quick overview of their pipeline
  • Doesn't have great integrations with LI Recruiter
  • Hard to see data on pipelines
Lever unfortunately is not very intuitive, in my opinion. I previously used Greenhouse and I'd recommend that over Lever if you are looking for software to allow recruiting and hiring teams to better collaborate, I believe. Lever's scheduling function isn't great but it works well integrated with Goodtime.

Lever is our corporate ATS. All sourcers, recruiters, TA coordinators, hiring managers, and interviewers use it. We also use it as a referral tool. Lever allows us to collaborate on hiring decisions, using it as the "single source of truth" for our recruiting efforts. We also use it as a first source of candidates for new roles as they open.
  • single source of truth for all recruiting activities
  • nurture campaigns
  • customized tagging for easily finding candidates for future opportunities
  • reporting is pretty basic
  • searching for candidates in Lever is very painful without a 3rd party tool
  • the "duplicate candidate" alerts are arbitrary and often incorrect
Managing pipeline and candidate communication is easy through lever. Keeping it all in one place allows the hiring teams to be in the loop real-time. The reporting is clunky and basic, however, and without a 3rd party tool, sourcing from the lever database is difficult. Also, it is very easy to have duplicate candidates since the alerts Lever gives are often incorrect.

We are using Lever as our Applicant Tracking System (ATS). We have also integrated with Checkr to run background and drug screens once the candidate has accepted the offer. Lever begins with an array of possibilities when a candidate first applies. I love the quick review feature where you can quickly move through new applicants/resumes and determine if they should move forward to the manager review or not the right fit for the position. From there you are able to place them into the archives along with the reasoning, "not a good fit", "not the right location", "position has been filled" - these are all set up according to our custom needs, which means if things change, we are also able to change with quick help from Customer Service. <br>
  • Reminders to contact candidates who have not been contacted.
  • Ease of setting interview schedules and feedback forms within the system.
  • Reminders to complete interview feedback forms after the interview.
  • We have a couple of unique needs as far as job postings - it would be helpful to either eliminate the location or be able to use "multiple locations" as a default, but Lever has not been able to refine that for us yet.
  • We have not actually been using the feature of generating the offer letter yet, again because we have some unique needs and we haven't had "buy in" from all management yet. We are still sending an individualized offer letter to every candidate.
Lever really is a user friendly application. It is very intuitive. I like that I can make notes within a candidates file and tag other members of management to view the resume/application without having to download everything and send in an email. Also, any emails to and from the candidate are synced which is a good way to track correspondence. We are a small volume hiring company, but I think a lot of the features would be put to great use by a larger company than ours.

Lever is essential for our organization, specifically for our HR department! It is being used to manage our hiring process. The tool has helped our organization source, manage and nurture candidates that are looking to work at our organization. Our HR department manages the platform but all of our departments use it: sales, engineering, customer success, marketing, and finance. The majority of departments at our organization use the tool to refer candidates.
  • Integrations with other systems
  • Reporting
  • Ease of use for all departments
  • Conversation threads do not appear in Lever
  • Reporting can be difficult to understand at first
  • Doesn't have direct integration with Indeed and Zip Recruiter
Our organization is growing rapidly at this moment and this tool is a huge improvement from what we previously used. This tool is essential for our organization because of how fast we're growing. Our HR team loves how they can keep notes on people who are applying. They love the improved communication with hiring managers and great reporting which has led to an improved experience. We also love the ease of use for referring candidates.

In my company Lever is being used across all departments. All candidates who wants to apply for a position has to go through Lever.
Since we're actively hiring new folks Lever helps organize the open positions and applications, keep track of interviews and their statuses, manage referrals and more. From an employee perspective, Lever helps me refer anyone I know who might a best fit for a position and also keep track of their progress through several stages of interviews.
  • Easy to use
  • Great support for implementation
  • Everyone on interview process have access
  • Different levels of access
  • Could have better LinkedIn integration
  • Lack of dedicated manager dashboard
  • Reporting can be improved
Lever is well suited for fast growing startups who are actively hiring. For larger organizations Lever might not have all the granular control which they might be looking for from a platform like this.
Since Lever is easy to setup and has great implementation support, it adds to the fact that smaller companies can take advantage of this.

We have used Lever since October 2019 as our first ATS. All hiring teams utilize Lever and it is the main tool for our recruiting efforts besides LinkedIn.
  • Job posting page integrates with website
  • Email candidates directly to set up phone screens with EasyBook Links
  • Schedules interviews in the platform
  • [In my experience,] terrible customer support - pay more to get less...
  • Integrations are spotty and can break without reason
  • Lever has so much potential, but their Roadmap is lacking in ways that will really help customers succeed
  • Focuses on the number of candidates and not the company's need to build talent in a cost effective, data driven and collaborative way
  • Overpromised and underdelivered in [the] capability of the tool. [I believe that you should] not trust your sales team.
Great if you are a big company with loads of money to spend on service to support your efforts. Must have low expectations of how it will help you find better talent. Make sure you have an in-house Lever tech person to help you as [in my experience] you won't get much help from their support team.

  • Ats
  • Multiple candidacies

Lever is currently the Hub Project's main applicant tracking system in addition to external job websites. We use it in the hiring process to fill vacant roles across the organization. The Operations team handles the day-to-day interviewing and routine ATS tasks in Lever. It is effective and efficient.
  • Lever keeps gives its users frequent job reports (i.e. number of applicants, etc.).
  • Lever ensures that all prospectives candidates are in one place.
  • Lever keeps track of the amount of time that has elapsed from submitting the application to the interview.
  • Lever reminds its users consistently on new functions and features.
  • Customer support could be better. I once asked Lever to export over a thousand resumes into our system and they were slow to respond.
  • In lieu of real time support, Lever should have a FAQ page with webinars and videos.
  • Lever can have a better ATS dashboard to glean top line information quickly.
Lever is a good applicant tracking system. It suits a majority of our needs at the Hub Project. It is inexpensive, effective, and efficient. If your organization has money to spend, however, then I would recommend Greenhouse because they are better and have more advanced features and functions. Although, you get your bang for your buck with Lever.

We used Lever for several months as a trial, during a period of reevaluating our recruiting and hiring pipeline process. Even though we ultimately went with another vendor, we learned a lot of best practices from Lever and would still recommend it to others based on certain criteria. Namely, the support for integrations with major 3rd party vendors like GSuite, LinkedIn, and Slack were impressive and saved a lot of work. Secondly, the interview scheduling feature was the best out of all the vendors we evaluated, and would be a game-changer for any organization that struggles with keeping up with scheduling tasks.
  • Scheduling management is a breeze.
  • 3rd party integrations are well-designed.
  • UI is snappy and responsive.
  • As others have mentioned, the single sign on feature does not play well with API access.
  • UI can be a bit busy.
  • Price point not worth it for us.
Well suited for organizations that struggle to keep up with a huge pipeline of applicants and interviews. The automatic scheduling feature would be a huge time-saver in this area for many teams.

Lever is being used across the whole organization to track employee referral candidates. Being in hyper growth, we are actively recruiting and hiring over 300 people in 2021. Because of this, the entire organization shares the task to find and recruit the talent. Lever makes it easy for current employees to get their contacts in the system for interviews.
  • Lever makes it very simple to track referrals
  • Understanding where a referral is at within the interview process is very clear
  • Easy to refer a friend
  • I wish there was a way for our team to add feedback on why a candidate wasn't hired. It often puts us in a weird spot when someone doesn't get hired and we have to manage that relationship later on and try to explain why they got passed up.
  • It doesn't feel very robust in what you can do--you log in, there's a list of people, you refer someone. It feels like there could be a better way to continue to help the hiring team along the way.
  • Would be great to get notifications along the way as well--candidate progressed to next step, etc.
I feel like it gets the job done--allowing employees at scale to refer their friends, get them in the system, and track their progress. If a company is in hyper growth mode and the recruiting team is needing some help/wanting to open up the talent pool, Lever gets the job done!

Lever is a great system for managing candidates and new hires. It makes work easier and more efficient and the platform is not too difficult to use.

We use [Lever] to track job applicants and to track interview participants through the different stages of the process. A whole department uses it for this, as the main tool to keep track of people and where they are as we interview them. We can bulk load larger lists of people, and then email them from Lever and otherwise keep all their information together in one place.
  • Great integration: Keeps a list of Outlook email communication along with LinkedIn and other data sources
  • Is fairly lively, not too much lag between screens even though it is looking through a lot of data.
  • Has excellent reporting on how well each email message is working.
  • Seems to go down once every 2-3 in some way
  • Sometimes the screens have soo much data it is hard to read it on a laptop screen
  • I sometimes don't know what an error message means, and it should be easier to get the answer online.
[Lever is] well suited to manage interview campaigns, provide feedback on applicants, and track your progress. Great integration to other business tools we use like Outlook and LinkedIn. It is awesome to be able to look at different stages and see your pipeline clearly.

Lever is being used by our HR and Recruiting specialists to get the entire organization involved in the recruiting and hiring process at Lucidchart. It increases the amount of qualified employees applying to positions and therefore increasing overall company growth in a healthy and exciting way. The tool is being used by almost everyone at our company.
  • Lever is amazing at making the referral process easy and fast for internal employees.
  • They provide an easy way to track the progress of our referrals and also provide feedback when necessary.
  • Lever is also great for tracking the interview process and collaborating to decide YES or NO on a given candidate.
  • It would be nice if we were provided a more detailed summary of why our referrals were not selected for a position.
  • The feedback feature that interviewers can give on candidates is great, but it is sometimes hard to find again after completion.
  • If there is a mobile version, better marketing/awareness on this would be helpful.
Lever is perfect for early recruiting processes and can also be utilized by more seasoned teams for internal interviews as well! It may be less appropriate for other HR processes like emails, schedules, and presenting offers when actually extending the opportunity to take a position at our company.

Lever is currently being used across our whole organization as the preferred tool for organizing recruitment and the overall process from posting job, interview, review, and finally, making an offer.
  • A lot of integrations with various tools, e.g., Slack, google suite, LinkedIn

  • Auditing, e.g., see the history who has accessed the profile

If you are an organization that is looking to consolidate, organize the recruitment process -- Lever tool is definitely for you. On the other hand, if it's a smaller company, you would have to invest a lot since someone needs to maintain the configuration of the recruitment process and it might be tedious.

Lever is our primary recruiting tool and it is used throughout the entire company. We use their UI for job postings and also their internal functionality for looking at candidates, setting up interviews and reviewing candidates. We have it integrated with a few other products as well in order to link test scores for recruitment exercises.
  • Integration with 3rd party tools (e.g. Hackerrank, LinkedIn).
  • UI for seeing candidates and providing feedback.
  • A bit crowded to view threads of conversation/comments on candidates.
  • Font and layout could be updated/modernized.
Lever is a great tool to use for large company's recruitment and hiring needs. I have not worked with a better 3rd party platform to do this. The one callout is Lever does not integrate with all 3rd party test-taking tools.

Lever is used as a recruiting and referral program for finding candidates for employment. Lever is used by all employees to submit referrals for job postings, and the talent acquisition/recruitment team uses Lever to reach out to candidates, schedule interviews, keep notes, and push candidates through the hiring workflow. Those who are part of the hiring committee, or been asked to participate in an interview are given tasks to review the candidates resume and provide feedback from the interview. Lever keeps everything centralized and keeps the workflow moving.
  • Keeps candidates information and interview notes organized
  • The interface is pretty simple to navigate
  • Provides a public facing page to list all of your available job postings
  • Product offering levels seems to be mismatched. You can get single sign on, but API access is separate. Turning on SSO will break the API.
  • The integration into G Suite for mail and calendar when using subdomains and SSO.
  • Doesn't support the use of multiple sub domains very well. We ended up accidentally duplicated every user account and then temporarily lost all candidate notes and feedback.
Lever is good as an introductory hiring management solution where you start receiving 50 - 100 applications for a position. It works well with a smaller number of candidates and when there are fewer people involved in the process. Once you start getting several hundred people into the system and you are implementing things like SSO, which most enterprise companies use, things become very complicated and can get messed up very easily.
