Overall Satisfaction with Bullhorn ATS & CRM

Bullhorn is used accross the whole organization by account managers, recruiters, client services with other software.
It is used for all our recruitment process, from searching candidates to place them, but also by sales people to follow-up their prospects, clients, creating jobs. It helps daily to make the link between all the departments as a recruitment cannot be successful if we do not [do it] as a team.
  • Identify quickly available candidates through the availability date
  • Know all the history of the candidates for the last years thanks to notes, submissions, etc.
  • Set up tasks or appointments so you do not miss any follow-up
  • Be able to change Ownership of Tearsheets, so if someone leave the company you can add the new person as owner
  • In the Submission Tab, have more details to have a whole picture of the process. Currently, the details in the process are only if the placement is successful. Ie : Web response - Prescreen / Candidate not selected based on resume / prescreen - Submission - AM Declined - Client Submission - Declined by client / Withdrawal - Interview appointment - Declined - Placement
  • Drag & drop candidates in jobs so we make a list of potential candidates for these jobs these candidates might be contacted after by another person. We can create a tearsheet, but it would be useful to add these candidates directly in the jobs (ie projects on Linkedin)
  • Check Candidate Placed vs Jobs Opened
  • Check how long it takes to fill in a job
  • Lots of data to fill in, and not already done by everyone so metrics cannot always be tracked (more a comment about the culture organizations than Bullhorn directly)
Bullhorn was already used in the company when I was hired, so I do not know why this one has been chosen vs another.
However, I worked with iCIMS & other ATS/CRM previously and what I like about Bullhorn is that it's both very complete and simple to understand for someone who is not so familiar with IT.

Would you buy Bullhorn ATS & CRM again?


Bullhorn helps to follow-up recruitment process easily after a submission (cf submission tab). However, previously during prescreen and messages left, it's just a lot of notes. It would be better to have in one simple list all the candidates contacted.
Which can be difficult is to make the link between similar project. Yes, we can search by jobs, go into the job, then in notes, but be able to run a more complex search to say I want all the similar jobs as... and have a list of all the persons contacted & status (not reply, message left, submission...) would save a precious time.
