Overall Satisfaction with SmartRecruiters

SmartRecruiters is being implemented across the organization. All managers, recruiters, business partners and directors will use the system on a day to day basis. The employee population will also have access to the employee site/referral portal. The system allow us to work smarter not longer. It allows us to save money on job board distribution and integrates well with LinkedIn.


  • Outlook integration is fantastic
  • Notifications to the management team
  • The ability to change things your self is amazing.
  • There is no ability to post only internally, every job gets posted internally and externally
  • The levels of security and functionality needs to be rethought. Managers should be able to view but not edit.
It is a simple process that anyone can do.
I am not sure my hiring manager will use the system as it is meant to be used. It takes a lot of time, which they want to leave up to us.
  • Save time
  • Better quality of candidate - easier to apply
  • Identify gaps in the recruitment process
Depends on the business need

  • Creating a poistion is easy and sending the jobs for approval is an easy process as well.
