Overall Satisfaction with Hyrell

I have used Hyrell for the last two years to post, recruit and screen candidates for all positions in our company in three different states. The posting process is very quick, using the customization library built into the product. Occasionally I use the "community library" to build job postings, but most of our positions are very specialized and industry driven. Hyrell allows me to customize as much as I like.
By presenting a profile of the company I am able to promote our organization; the "instant ad" feature allows me to create one job posting that I can use across a number of commercial and non-profit job sites with ease and nominal expense. Most of my positions are posted to Craigslist in the local area, and then Hyrell will send the posting to other sites at no additional charge. These features allow candidates to learn more about our company and our requirements for the position so that only serious qualified candidates will apply. In other words, there is a LOT of self-elimination on the part of candidates!
The alliance with HireSelect allows us to invite candidates to complete skills tests and personality profiles which further measure qualifications with objectivity. Go for it! You can't lose.
  • Very accessible customer support - if I need help getting the posting the way I want it, they are there.
  • Regularly scheduled training seminars - if you want to learn more about the program and its features, sign up.
  • Responsive technical support - when I find glitches, they will work on it until they resolve it.
  • I find it difficult to scroll from one candidate to another in the order that I like.
  • I have found that the program works better with some web browsers than others.
  • Better quality candidates
  • 90% Less time screening candidates and keeping up with applications
  • Good tools for communicating with candidates
  • Assessment testing is an added bonus

Using Hyrell

10 - Owners, departmental managers
I can use the program without support to help.
  • Posting job openings
  • Qualifying candidates
  • Recordkeeping
  • It is nice to know when an individual has applied for more than one position, and what those positions are.
  • Assessment testing is WONDERFUL!
  • Tracking candidates through the process is extremely helpful.
  • Finding candidates that applied for one position who might qualify for another.
Hyrell is very cost effective and save us MUCH time and money in the recruiting, screening and hiring process.

Evaluating Hyrell and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
The monthly fee is far less than the cost of one ad in many cases.
There is nothing I would change. Hyrell allowed me a trial period and was very patient with me once we signed on to help me set everything up the way I wanted it.

Hyrell Implementation

Ask for the help you need from your account representative and technical support. They are very helpful and easy to work with.
Yes - First was building our templates and posting positions; then came the assessment module and learning how to use the applicant communication tools via email.
Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled - I am the first HR person to work for this company. I am grateful that our executives felt the expenses for using Hyrell were reasonable. There is no doubt that these expenses have reduced our overhead for recruiting and hiring far more than what hit the bottom line on the financial report.
  • I can't think of any.
