I have been using PCRecruiter for the past 14 years, and so I have been able to see its evolution according to the technology changes during that time period. Also during that time, I tried other ATS from some of my clients, and kept noticing the differences. Starting with the fact that PCRecruiter is very robust, with the particularity that it is web based, and it integrates with many tools that I use, such as LinkedIn and Interseller. In the past, we used to insert a lot of information manually, but PCR has evolved to the point where we can PCR Capture profiles from work focused social media, such as Linkedin and Xing. After the learning curve, it is very easy to use, although at the beginning it can be overwhelming due to the robustness of the system, and how customizable it is. You can manage clients, vendors, candidates, and positions (jobs). You can customize each profiles however is most suitable for your needs. You can manage a position pipeline and automate the messages that the candidates and clients receive in each step of the process. They have recently implemented a sequencing option, which allows you to prepare mailing lists and send marketing messages automatically. It still has room for improvement, but they are headed the right way. If I had to pin point a major problem they have, is the undo option when working with rollups. Sometimes when selecting profiles on a rollup and changing their stages, the profiles stay selected and you can keep selecting other profiles and setting them to another stage without deselecting the previous profiles. This is very annoying, and even thought we have implemented a checklist so we don't forget to deselect the previous records, sometimes it happens that we set a stage by mistake, or even remove profiles from a rollup by mistake. An undo button would be extremely helpful. Or an automatic deselection to records that have been set to a stage.
  • Pipelining candidates for client
  • Integrating with other systems
  • Customization of clients, candidates and position cards
  • Rollups (kind of a rollodex)
  • PCR Capture from social media
  • Not having an undo button
  • Should automatically deselecting items on roll ups when a stage is set.
PCRecruiter is great for staffing and recruiting companies that are looking to organize their database. It is also suitable for companies that are also wanting to organize their recruiting processes. Many companies still receive resumes in paper and do not digitalize them. It is even suitable for sales and marketing departments, since you can do marketing and track sales with it.
  • We have a 60K+ database of candidates
  • You can attach documents to each candidate
  • Using PCR Capture you can keep candidates information updated
I still keep using some of these, but PCR is my main place for profiles, since I can find someone on Linkedin, enrich it with another tool and keep it all in one place, PCR Recruiter. Its versatility when it comes to adding information and documents, organizing and visualizing content is incomparable.

Customer support is very fast and friendly. PCR provides an option to open help desk tickets, which are always answered promptly and accurately. I have always received the answers and guidance I am looking for. I think they have a great team and keep growing it to provide the best support.
I have not purchased premium support.
I have reported several bugs throughout 14 years using the tool. These are always resolved promptly.
Just back in February this year, I contacted the support team regarding a configuration with our PCR Portal, since it was presenting license issue with some of our users. I attached the screenshot and recorded a small video of the problem. This was at 10:28AM. At 11:00AM I had already a response and a solution from the suport team.

  • UI - too many split screens and tabs
  • Hard to toggle between areas
  • Lacks a "current" look and feel overall
Overall it is outdated compared to some other products. The support is [PCRecruiter]'s claim to fame. The people are available, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.
  • Hard to say in terms of $$$
  • It worked well over the years for us
  • Lagging in innovation and user interface
  • Too many clicks to get around
[From my experience it is] lagging in UI, recruiters have to "work for the software" rather than the "software doing things for the recruiter". Data mining is a good one for positions and candidates.

Excellent! None better.
Don't remember :-) but I was treated as Premium!
Small glitches but nothing major, resolved satisfactorily.
This can best be answered by our internal support person. [PCRecruiter] always did me proud with their support! Well done and Thank you.
Average in use and appearance. Too many clicks and tabs which is clunky for me.
  • Not elegant, but simple
  • Moving around, navigation clunky and cumbersome

We are recruiters and everyone uses it. It is used daily to track everything from candidates, job openings, interviews, placements and of course reports. Our project coordinators find it very easy to add both companies and candidates linking them together as well and moving candidates to new companies. The search capabilities are very easy to use to prepare for new searches and projects.
  • I am not a computer person but find it easy to work with
  • Notes, tracking and linking candidates to companies
  • Holding history
  • Uploading candidates
  • Just simple with a lot of functions
  • Searching the database is very easy and preparing lists to call is simple. It is easy to expand or narrow searches as needed.
  • I love the interface between Outlook and PCR it makes it very easy to not have multiple screens to go back and forth to.
  • N/A
I have used PCRecruiter (PCR) for over 15 years. If every vendor that we work with was as good a PCR my life would be a lot better. The functions of the software meet all of our needs; customer service is extraordinary, if you have a suggestion they listen!
PCR has evolved over the years to keep up with new things that are happening like social media. As stated they listen to suggestions and take input seriously.
  • I have been doing the business for a long time and started when we did everything with paper , note cards and notebooks. PCR has made it very easy to search our database and track candidates.
  • Adding new candidates has become a simple task
  • Moving candidates to new companies is seemless
  • The key is using the skill codes so you can find the companies and candidates [you] have in the database so you can recall them. The setup, in the beginning, will save a lot of time and help make money.
  • Taking advantage of their interface with Outlook so who you need to be in touch with is in your phone directory is invaluable.
As mentioned above we did an exhausted search and choose PCR. We took a chance as PCR was new to the market but we were very comfortable with the staff as they understood our business and needs. They continue to do so and have growth with the market. We are raving fans of PCR. I have recommended it to numerous companies and have never heard a complaint from any that have chosen PCR.
You call and they take care of it including when you have a suggestion for a change or upgrade.
There is no need and I am not sure they even have it. The product is very good and we do not have many problems. When we do they could not be more responsive.
When we switch computer systems early on they stayed with us the whole day to help with the transition. Now that is is cloud base that problem does not exist but I still feel that one of the companies strengths is that they care and take care of any issues that arise. I also love that they listen to suggestions as they seem to want to always improve the product.

We provide a full range of Staffing, Recruiting, and RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) services. PCRecruiter is the primary platform for our business. We use it for marketing our services as a CRM and for recruiting to manage the entire recruitment process. We use the integrated OCR mail program as our email client. We use the Contractor time sheet module which we export into QuickBooks for payroll with temporary/contract business. We use the web extension to power our job boards and automate the applicant process.
  • All client and candidate activities are tracked and documented in one place. This makes it very easy for our team to work collaboratively. For example all email correspondence is written to client or candidate record, sales calls, follow-up, etc. are all contained in one place.
  • We like the ability to customize fields and the work flow. We have created specific data field that are relevant to some of the niche markets we work. This has allowed us to quickly slice and dice our data for marketing and recruiting campaigns.
  • The Bulk email feature is very easy to use and we incorporate it into most of our marketing and recruiting campaigns and since it is fully integrated we see all of the activity associated with the client or candidate.
  • The RSS feed of jobs has allowed us to easily integrate with social media. when a position is posted into PCR it is automatically fed to multiple social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and twitter.
  • We use the calendar and Rollup list function to organize all of our recruiting and marketing campaigns. Rollups simplify the planning part of our business.
  • The metrics reporting is great. We are in a metrics driven business and with PCR we have automated most of the reporting such as interviews/hires, attempts/presentations, presentations/ interviews, etc.
  • Although PCRecruiter offers API's we would like to see a more Mobile friendly version. Especially for candidates when applying for a position.
  • Some of the administrative function still require writing a SQL query. For example there is no easy way to clear out a large number of old form letters and merging large numbers of duplicate records.
  • The basic web extension for clients is very limited. For example the position screen only shows the position title which if you have five positions with the title of "Sales Rep" in five different cities you can not to tell them apart.
I can say that from a recruiting perspective it is the best solution we have seen. We evaluate new / different packages each year and PCRecruiter is still the best we have seen. The product is very robust and may be a bit too complex for some applications.
  • PCR has increased the efficiency of our team. The ability to capture metrics automatically saves over an hour/week alone. The integrated email along with pre-set form letters save quite a bit of time during the call process which allows our team to make more calls.
  • The down side is that the learning curve is such that it does require a fair amount of training and time for a new person to acclimate to the software.
  • The custom service experience has been enhanced in that anyone on our team can pull up a candidate or client record and jump right into to help.
The short answer is that PCRecruiter provides what we believe to be the best overall value for the money. PCRecruiter offers a comprehensive and complete package that integrates all phases of the recruitment process and applicant tracking. PCRecruiter also understand the "sales" aspect of the third party recruiting world.
Sales, support, admin
The technical support team is awesome. Very knowledgeable and if it is something out of the ordinary they will quickly find the answer or someone that has the expertise to help. I have never had a bad experience with PCR technical support services. They are first class.
