Overall Satisfaction with SmartRecruiters

It is used across the entire organization as a simple platform for candidate life-cycle management when tracking prospective candidates for open positions. Really simply it fills that need without any burdensome overhead for implementation and integration with the rest of the HR suite of tools currently used.
  • Provides transparency to candidates to see where they are in the application life cycle
  • Collaborative capabilities for hiring committee to collect and understand opinions of candidate quickly across all hiring committee members
  • Simple clean UI
  • Integration with Workday to transfer user content into the HR system
When I was on the other side of the interviewing process, this level of transparency was not only reassuring for me as an applicant, but also confirmed to me as a prospective employee that the company truly does want to be enabling with insights to help everyone best have the needed context to act.
I wasn't the hiring manager, but I wasn't sure how to best indicate to the manager that all the reviews are in and they should now review and sign off on the potential candidate.
  • Saved time
  • Saved resources being wasted on trying to track applicants in unorthodox manner i.e. slack, email, etc.
Felt it was far simpler and more intuitive than Greenhouse that was used at a previous company.
Great for tracking candidates in the hiring life cycle; really in my opinion [it] shouldn't be used for other use cases which would be better suited for other tools.
