Overall Satisfaction with SmartRecruiters

SmartRecruiters is being used to find Waterpark Staff. It was a program that was in place upon my arrival. SmartRecruiters is a useful tool in connecting me to applicants that I might not otherwise locate and have the chance to interview.
  • Connects me to applicants that I might not connect.
  • SmartRecruiters is another tool to use in my recruitment of new staff.
  • Smartrecruiters allows me to prescreen applicants without going through the interview process. I receive an email anytime there is a potential candidate to review.
  • SmartRecruiters allows me a place to keep job descriptions posted indefinitely.
  • Have SmartRecruiters screen applicants. For examples: try to gauge the level of interest an applicant has in finding a job...casual, semi-serious, serious; are they looking for full-time, part-time, on call; what hour are they looking for days, mids, nights, weekends.
  • A link indicator of the applicant posting a resume. Some of the applicants are in their profile, some are attached, and it is not always easy to determine which is which.
  • Have the applicant select an expiration date on their interest. For example, I was on vacation shortly before a recruit posted an interest. By time I got back to her, she was no longer interested. However, I spent 3 days trying to pursue her before discovering her lack of interest.
Overall, I would say that we have hired about 50% of the SmartRecruiter applicants. Our non-hires have been because of interview no shows, lack of applicants following up with us after our initial contact, and not matching their needs for a job due to hours, shift availability, etc. despite the job description being posted with those details.
I am a working manager that makes interview and hiring decisions. It is a great resource for me to refer to the hiring and Human Resource Departments.
  • pos: A wider range of applicants
  • pos: A larger geographical area to draw from
  • neg: Pursuing applicants that do not follow up when contacted
SmartRecruiters allows me to access applicants in areas that I would not normally think to search. It gives me an additional tool to recruit potential staff besides professional networking, word of mouth, and recruitment of friends of current staff. It also allows me the opportunity to keep an ongoing hiring process by keeping my job descriptions out on the web.

Its ease of use
No, we use SmartRecruiters as a standalone recruiting solution.
It allows us to reach a client that we normally are not able to reach with ordinary measures.
