Overall Satisfaction with Taleo

Taleo is used as an applicant tracking system for a large company. Currently utilized by the Recruiters and some HR staff. It addresses the issues of organizing and screening candidates based on positions. It is used as a search engine/tool. It is used to screen candidates utilizing the prescreening questions.
  • Organizing incoming candidates
  • Pre-screening questions and ability to create prescreening questions is a great screening tool
  • Ability to organize candidates into groups for future reference
  • Ease of moving candidates through the hiring process
  • Keeping track of candidates
  • Visibility - ie: fonts can be rather small to read
  • Visibility - ie: background colors can be bland making viewing rather difficult
  • Absolutely increased recruiter efficiency
  • Candidates are quickly screened and feedback can be provided immediately
  • Ability to utilize as a search tool to quickly find candidates for open positions is very positive
Taleo is simply the most sophisticated and best Applicant Tracking System for experienced recruiters to use. Other ATS's pale in comparison due to ease of use, ability to organize the Hiring Process quickly and efficiently, as well as the ability to use the system to prescreen candidates and communicate with others to provide instant feedback.
For an experienced recruiter Taleo provides the best ROI as candidates are quickly screened and can be moved through the system for purposes of organization and communication with the candidates as well as other areas of HR. Totally automates the applicant tracking and hiring process quickly and efficiently. Taleo leaves a footprint for not only each candidate who applies, but also where the candidate stands during the Hiring Process. The prescreening questions help eliminate the guesswork regarding basic prescreening questions such as salary and skills that cut down on the Recruiters time - -which cuts down on time to fill!
Taleo is a fabulous applicant tracking system especially for a larger company. It has the ability to not only organize large number of candidates, but to effectively set up prescreening questions, compile reports, post positions easily and document all phases of a candidate's steps through the hiring process. Taleo is a sophisticated ATS that smaller organizations might find overwhelming at times. Best suited for experienced recruiters - those who have had some background utilizing another ATS. I find using Taleo a great experience.
