The Human Resources team use it to manage the whole recruitment process: adding candidates, scheduling interviews, uploading files pertinent to candidates such as curriculum vitae, and others, add notes, adding relationships to job openings, status follow-up, as well as adding some custom fields we use to register test results and psychometric evaluations.
  • workflow management
  • database management
  • automation
  • there's too many modules/ functions
  • psychometric evaluations nor available
  • tech support
It is much easier to manage our recruitment process. It helps provide context and history to different people involved in the hiring of new employees, in a collaborative tool. It has helped us to streamline the process, keep everybody in check and most importantly have reports and accountability. We use several psychometric tests as part of the evaluation process, and for this we had to add some custom fields.

Zoho Recruit is currently being used by our recruiting and sourcing team. Zoho Recruit allows us to track our client activity, post jobs, manage candidates, manage our recruiting workflow, the source for top talent and keep track of all of our job openings, in one place. We benefit from using Zoho because they offer unlimited job postings (for example, if we have the same job posting in multiple cities, with Zoho Recruit we can post each role individually).
  • Allows for unlimited job postings. While there may be other bells & whistles with other ATS's, we've stayed with Zoho Recruit for this top reason- we can post as many jobs as needed, at the same time. No need for reshuffling job postings. This saves us a lot of time.
  • Manages the staffing agency workflow process. Where staffing agencies differ from HR Team, Zoho Recruits' staffing agency technology allows us to jump right into managing our workflow with a technology that is already set up to support how we need to do this.
  • Connecting clients to candidates, managing emails, scheduling interviews - all in on place. We have the capability to use the software in a way where we don't need to work outside of it- from posting the job to managing the offer details, we can do all of it in ZohoRecruit.
  • Integrations- Zoho Recruit does work to add on additional integrations with job boards, etc.
  • User Interface - It's a bit outdated, and can use significant refreshing. Having the ability to train our new team members on an easier-to-use UI would save us a lot of time. Although Zoho adds on new features, their UI isn't the best to work with.
  • Career Site - Very limited. Without having to hire a developer, the average user is stuck with the limited functionalities of Zoho Recruit's career site. There is no option for our candidates to sort through jobs, we have limited UI control on the layout experience, no room for video, etc.
  • Mobile app- The app has very limited functionality and does not allow us to manage the entire recruiting process via mobile. And at times it crashes or freezes.
Zoho Recruit is great for a startup or small businesses that need a low-cost way to manage the recruiting process. It allows the users to do about everything within the system, and, because of Zoho's other products, can easily be integrated with their CMS, etc. If you have a lot of job openings to post all at one time, Zoho Recruit is #1.

Zoho Recruit may not be the best for larger agencies or a team with employees that rely heavily on mobile to manage their recruiting process. The app has very limited functionality, and the desktop site is not up to date with its responsiveness and user-friendly options.
The team from Zoho Recruit emails us weekly, to check-in and see if we have questions, concerns, need assistance with their program, etc. We receive follow up emails and calls from their dedicated support team. They respond quickly via email and phone and ensure that their responses include reference links as to where we can learn ourselves.

Zoho Recruit is a platform used to help get job applicants. Usually it's tiered to small/medium size businesses or organizations but within our large organization (10,000 + employees) we found use for this tool within different divisions as it's easy to use, has a great user interface, and has allowed for our process for recruiting to really be streamlined.
  • Very simple user-interface.
  • Database management is well organized.
  • Background screening is key.
  • Applicant tracking is great.
  • Lack of external facing customer portals.
  • More elaborate customization of pipelines.
  • Greater range of email templates.
It's a great tool to accomplished your ABC's of recruiting and candidate tracking. The user interface has helped many divisions utilize the tool which has not been a negative change management experience, and the cost is affordable and well priced for the tools you're receiving. Zoho Recruit's customer support is also fantastic which helped a lot in our configuration process.

We love using Zoho Recruit because it integrates perfectly with other Zoho products and is super easy to use. Because most of our team uses other Zoho products, they also use Recruit and were able to pick up this tool relatively easily since it is very intuitive like most other Zoho products.
  • Intuitive to use - things are easy to find and to make sense of.
  • The pricing is fair.
  • Integrates with other Zoho products.
  • Support could be better for this product.
  • Mobile system needs to be improved.
  • More ways to be able to visualize the pipelines.
Definitely a great product if you use other Zoho products. If not, there may be better options out there for you to use. Either way, I would still recommend this product.

This is just one of the exemplary services that the Zoho suite has to offer us in terms of business management, which in this case, encompasses the direct administration of human resources operations. We liked Zoho Recruit very much because it synthesizes all the HR tools in a single software, with very high integration capabilities.
  • Like other HR-based services, Zoho Recruit allows you to track the behavior of candidates during the execution of your hiring process, so that you can create constant notes of any problems that may arise and that may prevent a proper job.
  • The relationship between employers and candidates can be measured, which is excellent for creating reports on the development of each hiring process, and employees can then be evaluated on their ability to manage and communicate correctly with each candidate under their direct care.
  • Hiring sessions can be recorded using a variety of methods. It does not necessarily have to be done using an audiovisual recording tool (which is possible through different integrations) but a convenient recording system that allows you to note down important data, and where even the candidate's photographs can be saved.
  • We believe that some features of Zoho Recruit's support service could be improved, although this is probably a general service by the Zoho team for all their programs. The staff is not sufficiently explanatory, and therefore we have not been able to meet our expectations for troubleshooting.
  • We like that using Zoho Recruit is so convenient, and that it interfaces well with the other services that the entire Zoho suite has to offer: Zoho Recruit is a good alternative for human resources, which shows a reliable and easy-to-manage operability, so that all registration and follow-up processes are simple.
  • Zoho Recruit has difficulty integrating with other services that are not directly part of the Zoho suite, which is demonstrated by wanting to use a funnel management based CRM to include employee information, and Zoho Recruit's platform not allowing it because it doesn't meet some integrations beyond their suite.
  • You can't create portals where people can post their resume and quick contact information, and this can be a bit limiting for those who directly need employees to send their information to an easily accessible service where it can be conveniently reviewed and separated from the rest.
  • In terms of deployment, Zoho Recruit does not have such good adaptability when working from mobile, as evidenced by its application tracking function with the mobile version of the Zoho Recruit website, which does not let you send direct messages to candidates because the platform is closed unexpectedly.
The scenario where Zoho Recruit could be much more exploitable would be where you have the other platforms that are in the Zoho suite, such as Zoho CRM, to be able to cover different areas of the same office work without having to buy another service. Likewise, being able to use it in conjunction with a CRM service, it is feasible that it can be used to cover the area of communication with customers, and that this serves to create evaluations of the treatment that employees offer them. When it comes to reporting incidents or behaviors, this is a very favorable possibility. With its self-service tools, employees can manage their time and attendance information on their own, since by means of an attendance reading tool, all the aforementioned information is kept secure and free from subsequent changes by employees once it has been updated.

We use Zoho Recruit to track candidates, as an ATS, and to manage and schedule interviews. It solves the issue of having multiple places where these things are stored and helps us to stay organized by making sure everything is one place and there is no overlap. We just have a few people in our company who use this software and they are those who work in hiring and managers.
  • Background screening.
  • Applicant tracking.
  • Interview management.
  • Job board.
  • Scalable.
  • Billing.
Zoho Recruit is especially useful if you use other Zoho products. We use the CRM so the integrations make life a lot easier for us. If you do not use other Zoho products it may not be as necessary to use this software.

Zoho Recruit is working great to help with the onboarding management of applicants. We use it to recruit and manage job applicants. What makes it so nice is it simplifies the managing of the people, keeps everything in a central location and really helps us manage the job postings and applicants that come from it.
  • Pushing job postings to multiple sites.
  • Managing the applicants in a central location.
  • Helps with recruiting communications and tracking.
  • Great to track resumes submitted.
  • I wish this also had the ability to manage employees once they are hired.
Zoho Recruit is great for managing the job listing applicants and recruiting process. It has worked great as a software to manage the hiring process and tracking candidates in the hiring process. One other aspect we love is the integration with job boards makes it easy to publish a job listing to multiple sites.

We use Zoho Recruit to track applications and prospective new employees as well as to post new jobs. It is primarily used by our HR department although another large department that handles most of the process of hiring within their department uses it as well. It enables us to easily track and manage a prospective hire through the entire process as well as makes it easy to post new opportunities within our company.
  • Job posting
  • Tracking prospects
  • Managing the interviewing process between departments
  • Termination process tracking
  • Equipment issued
If you are looking for a complete hiring solution, this is well suited. However, it is less beneficial if you are looking for a complete HR package that handles all aspects of the HR department.

Zoho Recruit is a very powerful tool for managing the end to end hiring process for our organization. It is being used by the HR and all the key heads of departments and CXOs. Zoho Recruit is also integrated with other Zoho products that we use in the company, hence other teams make use of the tool or some of its interconnected features too.
  • Managing interview candidate
  • Managing the evaluation process
  • Internal HR processes
  • Candidate / internal communication
  • Application tracking and shortlists
  • Limited customisation possibilities
  • Support could be better
  • UX could be better
It is best suited if you have Zoho suite of products being used in your company, this becomes a natural fit for you then. Otherwise too, it's a light and cheap product for a 1-2 member HR team, helps to save a lot of time and organizes things very well. It is less appropriate for a large organization where this needs to be shared with hundreds of employees as the cost increases then. Also, if you need the tool to find new relevant profiles or integrate with other third party CRM, then this might not be the right fit.

We use Zoho Recruit as an applicant tracking system. Our company does two things - hire entry-level business development reps and outside sales roles for our clients. Only the recruiting department uses Zoho Recruit (2 people). It is good for organizing candidates and making sure none slip through the cracks since it is such a high volume of candidates we're speaking with.
  • Easy-to-use interface.
  • Organizing applicants and candidates.
  • Reminding me to reach back out to candidates at a particular time.
  • Doesn't download every resume properly if it is weirdly formatted.
  • Hard to add a resume to current candidates.
  • I can set reminders, but it doesn't send me an email on it like ATS's I've used in the past.
Zoho Recruit is a great tool if you're dealing with a high volume of candidates. You can tag them, making it easier to find candidates with specific qualifications/talents. Even if a candidate isn't a good fit now, Zoho Recruit makes it easier to tag them in case a role in the future is a better fit. Because I talk with 70+ people a week, it is imperative to have an ATS. It wouldn't be appropriate if you weren't doing high-volume recruiting.
I give Zoho Recruit this rating because over all, it has helped me to organize my candidates and saved me time and energy in organizing them myself. Without Zoho Recruit, I simply would not be able to keep my talent pool straight, and it certainly gets the job done.

I took off a couple points because if I download a resume after already inputting the candidate into Zoho, it won't automatically sync the two profiles up. It also does not remind me when a task is expired.

As a small startup that is sourcing candidates across roles from various free and paid sites and sources, we needed an efficient tool that would help us track candidates through the recruiting process and also to prevent duplicates from multiple sources. While Excel does work, it is cumbersom to use in the long run, cannot be shared easily across multiple resources and does not have automated workflow rules. Zoho Recruit solves all these problems and then some.
  • Zoho Recruit provides automated workflows that be defined to trigger emails for changes in the pipeline stage of a candidate.
  • Zoho Recruit provides the ability to create email templates that can be triggered from the candidates profile without having to retype them.
  • Zoho Recruit enables resume parsing from doc, docx and pdf files which automates the data entry of candidates.
  • Zoho Recruit allows for the creation of a simple career website with the open job positions auto populating from the application onto the site.
  • Zoho Recruit allows for the creation of vendor portals enabling you to better manage the flow of resumes from recruiting vendors.
  • Zoho Recruit should allow for customization of pipelines based on department/role to be hired.
  • Zoho Recruit should allow for customization of the vendor portal allowing the vendor to type in key data points about candidate profiles that are typically not found on the resume, such as notice period, current salary and expected salary.
  • Zoho Recruit could simplify the blueprinting process built into the tool which allows for smooth flow of candidates through the system.
Zoho Recruit is well suited in situations where one has multiple sources of candidates applying for different jobs, as it allows you to keep track of progress across each source. It is also well suited for companies that are constantly hiring and need an efficient system that tracks candidates. Zoho is probably not well suited for someone looking for an absolutely free resource for their ATS, or anyone looking to hire less than 10 people over the next 1-2 years. Tranditional tools can serve the purpose better in those cases.
Zoho Recruit customer support is extremely responsive. They have a Live Chat feature which allows you to connect with a representative in real time and discuss your issues. The reps have answered most of my questions, and quickly shared links to FAQs, or shared screenshots. The entire discussion is emailed to you upon completion. Features not available have been added to their requested feature list.

I’ve worked with Zoho Recruit for over a year and we are growing as a small business. This software allows us to show our vacancies within our business on social media and take possible candidates to fill vacancies as our needs began to grow. The business problems that it addresses are the vacancies open which we need to be filled with candidates that have a certain worker profile. It is mainly used by our IT department.
  • Easy to use and very intuitive to the user.
  • Very nice dashboard makes it easier for the user to make decisions.
  • The price is very affordable
  • Sometimes the integration with other software is suspended and connected again later.
  • The customize phase of the software should be easier.
  • The editing is still restrictive.
Zoho Recruit is a product that is well designed to open a database of all the vacancies of your small business. It is well suited for tracking your possible candidates who can apply through your social media interface. On the other hand, the pairing with your needs, editing your search needs and finding the final candidates could be tricky. Overall the product needs some work to be smooth.

Being a small firm and starting up Zoho has allowed us to manage our database as it grows. From a free standpoint it is great to help mitigate the upfront cost to a startup like myself. The more I grow and use it the more it has to offer and feel, it is a perfect software to use in my industry.
  • Zoho's easy to use resume database and tracking system has helped manage a lot of data. Its ease of use and full function - I will need as I grow.
  • Job board posting and client track is another great feature. It truly allows me to go from first contact to hires using the system.
  • I will say the staff and support team have always been quick to reply and very helpful.
  • I think it's easy to use, but can be a bit daunting learning how to use it. I highly suggest reading all of the help links they offer to get used to the system.
Zoho can work for small and midsize businesses alike - there are plenty of functions and attachments. There is a lot we don't use yet, will in the future.

  • Posting a job to a third party app like Naukri.com and Indeed, etc., directly from the application platform.
  • Customizing candidate forms for the various types of job vacancies.
  • Well-managed pipeline structure which helps to map the overall process of recruitment.
  • Scheduling interviews
  • Control over the candidate activity like blocking their logins for preventing misuse.
  • There should be more customization options for making our own pipeline for recruitment
  • Need to add feedback forms for each progress and interview. We struggled over a year to capture feedback of an interview
  • Need to improve assessment capabilities, like include more features
  • Unclear if we can decide pipeline for each and every job

We use Zoho Recruit to build applications for our training program and staff roles in our office, and to track applicants all the way through the application and on-boarding process. We also use Zoho People for personnel information, so we can easily transfer information from Recruit to People when an application is accepted.
  • It has been easy to set up and manage application forms and information forms for conferences and other recruiting events.
  • Forms are super customizable.
  • We have had some trouble recently migrating application information into Zoho People after applicants have been accepted, but customer support has been really helpful.
Zoho recruit has been really helpful in streamlining our recruiting processes. Now all of our applications forms have been built in Recruit, so all of the information we need about applicants is readily available, and we can easily track communication with applicants and where they are in the process as multiple people interact with them.

We use Zoho recruit as out Application Candidate Tracking system here at Compustaff. We are a recruitment consultancy. It manages all our candidate interaction and indeed out work flow. We use it to import candidates into the system, we import their CV/resumes and manage the interaction with them through the complete hiring process.
  • Phrasing CVs/resumes well is critical. To key in all this information takes a long time, zoho recruit does it accurately and usually in less than 30 seconds.
  • Adding relevant notes on the fly is great, it's easy to do and easy to retrieve.
  • It's just so easy to use, it's great. No fancy frills, it just does everything well and and very quickly.
  • It's great value for money.
  • Perhaps I would like the dashboard to be a little easier to read, easier on the eye.
  • I would like to be easier to update data job data to social media sites.
  • More templates for standard emails, etc.
Zoho recruit is designed to assist the work flow for the hiring process, and it does this extremely well. When you want to import a new candidate, it's just a couple of clicks and all the necessary information is imported.
If you want to contact and interact with a candidate it is easier to do it through regular email rather than through the system.

We are a small recruitment agency who have recently started trading. We use Zoho recruit for tracking all of our business activity. It allows us to keep track of candidates, clients and vacancies.
  • Zoho has all the features expected of a recruitment CRM system. Between my business partner and I we have used a few systems and have found Zoho to be a comparable system for a fraction of the cost.
  • Zoho is easily modified to what you require. Although we are fairly IT capable, we are by no means complete experts, and we managed, within a very reasonable time to create and apply elements which were of use to us.
  • Great cloud based system - sign in from anywhere.
  • Good response from customer service.
  • As a browser based system, it can get a little confusing with tabs / working with other web pages. That said we have created a link to sit on our desktop which keeps it separate. However, this means you cannot have multiple pages up at the same time i.e. a candidate and a client page.
Excellent for a company such as ours, it is excellent value for money.

Zoho is currently being evaluated for utilization in our recruitment division. Once the product is evaluated there we will also evaluate it for use in business development and operations. Overall the product currently helps us track candidates, their licensure, the ability to work and the ongoing communication with our potential candidates.
  • Parsing seems to be very effective and accurate.
  • Costs are well documented and are reasonable.
  • Zoho provides good customer support when needed.
  • Fields are able to be modified as needed.
  • Integration with Outlook, e-mail and templates seems to be a bit clunky.
  • Templates are not as easy to use as we would like.
  • The ability to flow chart fields (parent, child) not included (that I am aware) on this product.
Well suited for tracking information and for helping organize candidate interaction. Zoho seeks to be very much better integrated than it used to be. Much better product than 3 - 4 years ago! Overall very good product for recruiters and business development for vendors who recruit for hospitals, groups and associations.

Zoho Recruit helped our company get up and running on a small budget and continues to deliver value over time as we continue to use it and the other peripheral products like Zoho Invoice and Zoho CRM all of which communicate well and share work flow and data across the platform. I have been able to scale up and down with new and former users with ease.
  • Ease of implementation compared to other ATS/CRM platforms out there.
  • Careers page was very easy to set up compared to other ATS/CRM platforms out there which literally require advanced programming skills to implement.
  • Zoho Recruit talks to all other Zoho products like CRM, Invoice, Accounting, etc., - Easily integrates with third-party tools like Phone Bridge, etc., - Is a great value for the money as they do not charge you extra for this feature.
  • My personal feeling is that the Zoho CRM could just be included as a module into Zoho Recruit as a scaled down feature compared to the full blown capabilities of the CRM alone.
  • Zoho should work to expand more job board integration.
  • Radius search currently lacking :-( but on the roadmap to be delivered early next year :-) Lacks integration with finance software. Some fields are locked down and can't be re-labelled but to be fair this is minimal. Skill setting needed some tweaking but happy with where we have got to with that now!
  • Radius search currently lacking and this is definitely important tool to have.
Pros - A great value for the money and very easy to implement for what you get. If you are a small to medium size shop this could be an ideal ATS for you. A larger more VMS type situation may need to use a platform that is more robust.

I am using Zoho recruit on a daily basis for all of the positions I have to fill. It's easy to learn and user-friendly. Posting to boards is very easy and marketing my positions is too. The only down point about Zoho Recruit is that it's not suited for a competitive recruiting environment.
  • Posting my positions to free job boards
  • Easy to fill forms
  • Easy to market my positions
  • Allow a sales tracking system to be implemented
  • [Add] marketing management, newsletters and other stuff recruiters need to do to stay "top of the mind" for their clients.
  • Ability to manage my newsletter and my marketing towards my clients on Zoho
Zoho is very good in a non competitive environment. I really like how easy it is to post my positions to job boards and to search through all of my candidates. I love that I can manage my agenda from Zoho even if I don't use it as much as I could.

Zoho Recruit is our one and only trusted source for applicant tracking, we use it for all job postings, follow-up, searching and engagement. Our organization has found this solution easy to use and free flowing with customizations. My only major concern is the difficulty in which there has been to get the jobs page to post to my physical site and when you call IT they say they'll call back, and never do!
  • Running in-depth searches
  • Fully customizable and easy to set up
  • Intergraable with the HR platform Zoho People
  • Need better technical support like the CRM for premium paying customers
  • The abilty to shrink the screen to real time size automaticlly
  • Directly intetrgrate all campaigns and surveys
Zoho Recruit is an exceptional software designed for anyone large or small. This software allows you to add the things that matter most to your business. Its custom features and pre-design outline provides a platform that is user-friendly and easy to train your team and the best part is that it's super affordable.

We use Zoho Recruit to share information across offices; we track candidate communication, resumes, client interaction and lists. The information is searchable - and we use the reporting tools to track metrics and create call lists. Additionally, saved searches allow for a quick call list to be generated when a new job order comes in.
  • Lists - can quickly generate lists based on criteria.
  • Saved documents - Zoho catalogs resumes and cover letters for easy retrieval with a date stamp on when they were received.
  • Being able to code candidates allows them to be searchable and listed by skill and location.
  • When searching for a name, it brings up much too broad of a list.
  • Adding candidates from LinkedIn sometimes has a lengthy delay and takes up to 2 minutes to be able to search from them, though I have found a workaround by navigating to the home page to find activity of adding a candidate.
  • Would be helpful if it were more intuitive with adding duplicates.
Its a solid ATS for a small firm with a few users, and it has great storage capacity. However, the upgrade as we grow is cumbersome. Deleting candidates that self add would be helpful as they fill up the storage.
They have always responded quickly and resolved issues.

Zoho Recruit software is a good tool for recruitment management. It is everything you need to start your recruitment. Ideal for startups or growing businesses.
  • Clear interface, easy to use.
  • Good price.
  • Integrated with other Zoho apps.
  • Old-fashioned style Careers website creation tool.
  • Overall design a bit old-fashioned.
Easy to upload, extract new candidates resumes and manage all recruitment process.

Zoho Recruit is a simple to use system that we use to manage the recruitment department end to end.
  • The CV parsing facility that auto populates the candidates profiles is super.
  • It's very good for mass emailing of candidates, the parsing splits out skill sets and makes it very searchable.
  • The step by step process flow makes things very simple for the user.
  • Some of the more high tech functions like customised email require some technical knowledge to set up.
I would strongly recommend Zoho Recruit. It's the best software for recruitment management I've seen. Don't hesitate to use it.
