Overall Satisfaction with Broadbean

We use Broadbean as one of our sourcing methods for open roles, both temporary and permanent positions. Broadbeans allows us to post open vacancies across multiple job boards seamlessly, enabling us to reach passive and otherwise forgotten candidates in the process. Broadbean serves as another recruitment tool in our arsenal to deliver talent.
  • Broadbean allows us to post roles on job boards that we normally don't get a match on, and lets us expand our search and visibility to more candidates than ever before.
  • Extremely easy to post, detail, and edit job postings on multiple jobs boards instantly.
  • Customer service and the help center are friendly and responsive.
  • Some of the job boards that serve on Broadbean are not the best, and can sometimes reach the wrong type of candidate (background & experience level).
  • The technology needs to be updated with the new ATS changes. There hasn't been an update to the system in quite some time.
  • They could work on parsing their data better with social media outlets, like posting on Linkedin, Twitter, etc.
While not as popular ZipRecruiter, it does, in some cases, lead to hard-to-find candidates that are exclusive to the Broadbean search. I wouldn't say that Broadbean is as strong as Zip in terms of its reach to candidates, but it does serve well as another complementary tool for the recruiter. I would, however, give the slight advantage to Broadbean for its integration with our ATS, as to where Zip is more its own manual program.
Broadbean is well suited in the event that a candidate search has come to a standstill, and it's become virtually impossible to find the right person for the job. Broadbean serves as a method and tool to find that "passive" candidate who could lead to a placement. Because it's easy to use and versatile, the posting is not time-consuming or tedious.
