Overall Satisfaction with SmartRecruiters

We use SmartRecruiters as our main database for prospective employees. We manage all of our applications and reviews through SmartRecruiters. Every department has access to SmartRecruiters to write reviews of the candidates they interview. I use it to schedule and track potential candidates.
  • Sends notifications directly to people when tagged.
  • History of contact with Candidate can be seen from one screen.
  • Doesn't run out of space for additional candidate information.
  • Ability to assign a candidate to more than one job at a time.
  • Link to all versions of Outlook.
  • Duplication feature of notes or candidates.
The most effective piece for candidate experience is the templates. Tasks such as requesting an interview or rejecting a candidate can be done simply and quickly. Communication with the candidate is uniform and helps to create an environment of fairness.
As a coordinator, I get questions daily from Hiring Managers abouIt how to do something in SmartRecruiters. I do believe in large part this is due to insufficient training, but also can tell that it is not self explanatory enough for them to figure it out without asking questions.
  • Efficiency. SmartRecruiters allows me to look quickly through candidate responses and reach out in a group instead of having to do each one individually.
  • SmartRecruiters has features that streamline communication between myself and Hiring Managers, as notes are requests are emailed directly to me.
This is the only system I have used.
SmartRecruiters is a great system for tracking candidates in a simple form. I think it is best suited for smaller companies, under 500 people, as the communication features seem to lag at times. We also experience some sort of issue every other week or so.
