Overall Satisfaction with Lever

Lever is used as a recruiting and referral program for finding candidates for employment. Lever is used by all employees to submit referrals for job postings, and the talent acquisition/recruitment team uses Lever to reach out to candidates, schedule interviews, keep notes, and push candidates through the hiring workflow. Those who are part of the hiring committee, or been asked to participate in an interview are given tasks to review the candidates resume and provide feedback from the interview. Lever keeps everything centralized and keeps the workflow moving.
  • Keeps candidates information and interview notes organized
  • The interface is pretty simple to navigate
  • Provides a public facing page to list all of your available job postings
  • Product offering levels seems to be mismatched. You can get single sign on, but API access is separate. Turning on SSO will break the API.
  • The integration into G Suite for mail and calendar when using subdomains and SSO.
  • Doesn't support the use of multiple sub domains very well. We ended up accidentally duplicated every user account and then temporarily lost all candidate notes and feedback.
  • Lever has greatly reduced the amount of time it takes to go through candidates.
  • We have spend a lot of time messing with Lever to work with SSO and subdomains. We gave up on the subdomains and have left things more or less duct-taped together. It's working, but it's fragile.
  • The collaboration has helped get deeper views into candidates and has helped gain better quality candidates.

Lever is good as an introductory hiring management solution where you start receiving 50 - 100 applications for a position. It works well with a smaller number of candidates and when there are fewer people involved in the process. Once you start getting several hundred people into the system and you are implementing things like SSO, which most enterprise companies use, things become very complicated and can get messed up very easily.
