Jobvite is primarily used by our Recruiting Team as an Applicant Tracking System. It is also used by Hiring Managers to input interview feedback and internal employees to submit referrals. It is used to help organize and track candidates that apply for jobs with the company and like with any ATS help us in our efforts to stay compliant with State and Federal Laws when it comes to fair and equal hiring practices.
  • With Jobvite I have the ability with my hiring manager's permission to show them how they can link job openings on Jobvite to their Linkedin accounts so that they can blast any opening within the company to their Linkedin network.
  • I can leverage my Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter feeds to Jobvite to connect my social network to openings within the company.
  • I personally have found the reporting function to be cumbersome and not user friendly to the degree that I would like.
  • I have worked with several different ATS systems in the past and haven't worked with one that I love including Jobvite but it is the best that I have come across so far.
  • Jobvite is really simple for hiring managers and employees to figure out with minimal training on my part.
  • The ATS functionality was easy and fast for me to pick up with the previous ATS exposure that I have had in my career.
  • I feel that there is too much time spent when it comes to figuring out how to configure a particular report that I want. To have a question answered I have to submit a help desk ticket vs. picking up the phone and talking with someone live.
I wouldn't say I miss using any of the other ATS products that I've used in the past and I'm not sure if I would miss Jobvite either. If you discover the perfect ATS please let me know :)
If there was a stronger product out there that made budget sense I could be persuaded to make the switch otherwise it's not worth the time spent to implement an new ATS right now.
If running reports out of the next ATS System you invest in is a key functionality you are looking for I would make sure you are happy with what is provided. There are lots of choices when it comes to investing in an ATS and I would make sure you compare it to at least two others to make sure you feel like you are getting the best bang for your buck.
