Overall Satisfaction with OpenHire

OpenHire was used by the entire recruiting team, and some of the HR team (the ones that supported the onboarding process, or helped with recruiting when the demands were high. At the time, recruiting were the only ones that created requisitions then followed through to the hire point. Hiring managers throughout the chain were not allowed to use it.
  • I really enjoyed the ease of use for candidates. The application process was easy. They uploaded their resumes, it was parsed quickly, and only a few questions to answer. If they made some kind of mistake, they could go in and fix it, as apposed to us having to fix it.
  • It was easy to search resumes by location and key words.
  • It can be accessed anywhere! from any device or computer! You can work from anywhere, even at the airport, at home when your kid is sick, etc.
  • When looking in a list a resumes that applied to one specific position, I like to easily go from resume to resume, in the same view. I didn't favor how when I hit the next button, I didn't have the same view.
  • In the early days of OpenHire, I also wanted to be able to batch email candidates from a search. I would do the search in the database, and it would show the matching resumes, and would like to be able to send them all the same message at one time. I understand, that has now been added.
  • The folder system takes too many steps and time.
  • Faster resumes screening, enabling recruiters to share with managers quicker
  • Increased Recruiting productivity
  • Facilitated the application process for potential candidates. Builds a better brand
Recruit soft, RecruitMax, what is now Taleo, Kenexa. To be frank, at the time, Openhire was the most cost effective, and it allowed a large amount of users who worked remotely, without having to go to company servers to use the system.
I would say the company's demand level. If they are very small company, very low demand, this ATS may not be cost effective. For the VERY large companies with extreme demand, the occasional down time from web accessing can be frustrating!
