Overall Satisfaction with Jobvite

Jobvite is being used across our entire organization for recruiting, reporting, interviewing, & hiring talent for our organization. The new jobvite UI is a great tool to be able to create a snapshot of any req at a given point in time.
  • Social integration. Being able to quickly share your openings on Linkedin, Twitter, & Facebook.
  • I like how you can submit active candidates straight to the hiring manager through the req. The managers interest one or another is capture within the ATS and makes it easy to disposition from there.
  • Scheduling phone interviews. You can easily schedule phone interviews within Jobvite and have the invite pop on the interviewers Outlook. At other companies I would have to record the time within the ATS & schedule to Outlook.
  • Search. Not a huge fan of the search results within Jobvite. I would like to be able to see the current company, school, & location from the search view within having to click through every single candidate.
  • CRM functionality. I wish Jobvite had a feature to save candidates within the ATS easily for future opportunities
  • Interview feedback template. I wish you could have customizable feedback templates for different parts of the organization.
  • + The ease of sharing openings across different platforms to help drive more applications
  • - The customer service department is not very helpful when there is a technical issue with the product
  • + The ease of managing your open reqs the the easily manageable UI.
I have used Job Science, Kenexa, & Trovix in my career so far. Each product has its strengths, but jobvite has the least amount of weaknesses. The speed of uploading resumes, having the information parsed, and moving candidates through the process is very helpful when sourcing.
If search was better & customer services was more helpful I would have given a 9 rating. Those are the biggest pain points for me personally.
If you are a small company then Jobvite is a good solution. I would not recommend jobvite if your a mid size company of 1500 employees+
