Overall Satisfaction with Jobvite

We are using Jobvite as our applicant tracking system plus it is the display for our careers page. We use it company wide in all departments for all recruiting needs. Before we had jobvite, we were sorting through a general "Resumes" inbox which was time consuming, plus now we're able to track where applicants are through the entire interview process. It makes it easy for hiring managers to know the status of their applicants without having to send unnecessary (or constant) emails. I'm the only person for HR so I'm doing all of the recruiting as well. Jobvite easily organizes our roles and applicants without letting anyone slip through the process. Plus it makes it easy for our employees to upload referrals into the system without those getting lost in my inbox.
  • It keeps applicants from submission through to hire (or rejection) very organized! You can add internal notes, screening questions and track all communications for each candidate.
  • It promotes employee referrals and makes it easy for employees to reach their social networks. The majority of our employees automatically publish to their LinkedIn accounts on a regular basis with our open roles, therefore increasing the number of applicants we have (plus the quality is higher),
  • There are several pre-made reports to easily grab statistics on job performance or information about hires without having to do a ton of analysis (which can be time consuming for a 1 person team.)
  • One annoyance is that our company profile info (that is displayed on our careers page) can be updated in Jobvite, but then I have to submit a request to have it reflected on our careers page.
  • We never miss a resume! Whether posting on our careers page, LinkedIn or other third party sites, it all goes through jobvite being the hub for all roles.
  • We've increased our time to fill for each role since the process is much more streamlined in jobvite.
  • All employees are more engaged in recruiting with the ability to post on social media, plus we do an automatic email blast (via jobvite) to all employees every other Friday to alert them to our open positions. This way everyone can be a part of the recruiting process since our employees are our best resource for hires.
Previous to jobvite we were just trying to manage resumes via email and google apps, it worked terribly. We selected jobvite because we needed to ramp up hiring quickly and I'm a one person team to manage all the open positions. Jobvite was easy for me and the hiring managers to learn since it is very intuitive.
In our situation, we didn't have an applicant tracking system so the opportunity there was pretty large. Jobvite suits us well because we're a tech-minded company and people are on social media every day so using the referral piece of it has been very beneficial to us. Plus the hiring managers don't hesitate to log in and know exactly where we're at with each candidate.
