  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Integration with 3rd party tools (e.g. Hackerrank, LinkedIn).
  • UI for seeing candidates and providing feedback.

  • 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.
