Overall Satisfaction with Jobvite

Jobvite is our applicant tracking system for North America. It allows us to:
  • Post jobs
  • Collect incoming resumes
  • Collect compliance information
  • Collect initial screening information
  • Distribute resumes to job boards
  • Integrate with LinkedIn
  • Manage candidates associated with requisitions
  • Book interviews
  • Directly message candidates
  • Track a candidate's history with our organization
  • Book and manage interviews
It's a solid mid-market system that meets our business requirements.
The quality of support is excellent.
  • Sharing jobs on job boards and social media.
  • Intuitive use and administration.
  • Collaborate with recruiting colleagues on candidate statuses, moving candidates through the process.
  • User access control - The ability to restrict certain recruiters to access requisitions and candidates associated with their office, country, or region.
  • Is application-centric vs candidate-centric. If I search for John Smith, it looks like there at 10 John smiths in results, whereas in reality there is one who has applied to 10 jobs.
  • Ability to integrate with multiple instances of Office365 for calendar/interview booking reasons.
  • Positive - Effectively allows us to post jobs and distribute them.
  • Positive - Compliance management.
  • Positive - Collaboration within our recruiting team.
We picked Jobvite primarily because the cost to features ratio was the right one for us based on our business requirements. We also selected them because of ease of use, strong customer support, and the ability to support multiple market-facing brands. CATS is good but very simple. iCIMS is probably superior as a true enterprise-level system but was more sophisticated and costly than we needed.
Customer support is quickly available, friendly, and always helps solve my problems. Our customer success rep is friendly, responsive, and always has good recommendations. They lose a point because their live chat feature never seems to have anyone available. Generally speaking, I am always able to get the support I need when I need it.

Do you think Jobvite delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Jobvite's feature set?

Yes

Did Jobvite live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Jobvite go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Jobvite again?

Yes

Jobvite is well suited to organizations that:
  • Don't need to segment access to information on the basis of office, country, or region. If you need user access control on this basis, it will probably not meet your needs
  • Want a cost-effective, mid-market product that lacks in certain areas of global enterprise-type features.
