Overall Satisfaction with OpenHire

OpenHire is being used as our applicant tracking system. We are using SilkRoad and myself, the rest of the HR team and our hiring managers all utilize the program. Silkroad is helping us with all of our recruitment needs as well as gathering all of our EEO data from our current candidates.
  • Ease of posting jobs
  • Report writing is accurate and readily available
  • Update to the candidates
  • Hiring manager functionality
  • The ability to email interviewed candidates vs non qualified
  • Ease of posting directly to other websites
  • Positive recruitment
  • Application system always crashes- negative
  • Ease of finding information once in the system
I think that UltiPro is much more user friendly. I have only worked through one module but it was very easy and seemed to provide me with all of the information I needed. It seems the hiring managers will have more flexibility to assist with the recruiting piece, which is something that we have a lot of at our company.
This system should really be used by a recruiter only. The hiring managers do not have much access to do anything other than review resumes. They cannot mark a candidate qualified or not qualified which can get confusing when you have multiple people reviewing resumes for one job. This system is definitely functional for a recruiter.
