Overall Satisfaction with PeopleAdmin

We use PeopleAdmin to manage staff position descriptions and to post open positions and manage searches. This is used by the entire campus although actual access to the software is somewhat centralized. We moved to this from a VERY old paper-based system and it has provided a much more efficient way to store and access staff job descriptions. The applicant tracking side of the software has allowed much better tracking and reporting of our search processes.
  • Provides a dashboard view that provides both a quick glance and the ability to drill down on individual items. This is important for managing multiple staff actions and searches.
  • Applicant information (current and historical) is stored in one convenient place and can be accessed immediately when needed.
  • Information can be sorted, viewed, and searched for in varying ways which is important when working with multiple departments.
  • Moving applicants through workflow is not a very fluid process. When the number of applicants spans multiple pages one is forced to work with each page individually; moving applicants to a status that requires approval precludes moving any others in workflow without filtering them out but it is not obvious that one needs to be aware of this.
  • One can't search for a job description by simply typing in the employee's name - it requires using the position number and often the name is what is at hand.
  • When one changes positions within the organization and requires different access there does not seem to be a way to be added globally to job descriptions in the new unit - the process is far too manual. Although I believe adding new units to ones profile is fairly simple, apparently one can't remove the old units so I continue to see things that I no longer need to.
  • Customer service to applicants has definitely improved given our ability to track searches and send appropriate notifications in a timely manner.
PeopleAdmin does not seem to handle the higher education hierarchy well - or at least not ours.
