Overall Satisfaction with Taleo

We use Taleo within the recruiting organization at my firm. Before we implemented Taleo there was no applicant/candidate tracking system in place. We have now been using Taleo for almost six years for applicant tracking, candidate management, requisition posting and our careers website interface. Since adding Taleo our processes have become more efficient and manageable and collecting and reporting historical information has been made much easier.
  • When a report is set up properly Taleo does a good job of compiling and extracting necessary candidate information.
  • Taleo is a useful tool for reviewing hiring metrics.
  • Taleo does a good job of managing candidate information including contact logs.
  • Taleo is currently upgrading the system so I have not yet been able to gain a full understanding of new offerings, but in the past the reporting tools have not been the easiest to work with. Once a report was set up it was difficult to edit it and the reporting tool as a whole was not very user friendly.
  • Taleo's interface is difficult to work with as you need to toggle back and forth between pages when editing or creating layouts. It also logs you out as changes are made which makes it difficult to use.
  • Created an interface on our public website that allowed us to manage job postings in a much more efficient way
  • Increased speed in candidate review and company response time to job seekers
  • Better candidate management
We recently made changes and upgrades to our system with Taleo. If the upgrades are done well and allow easier utilization and reporting Taleo will be a very strong tool. The system does a good job with applicant tracking and candidate management which are the areas I utilize most. You can customize page layouts for internal recruiters/HR managers as well as external applications which allows different types of information to be collected and viewed. This is an important feature if your company uses the program within different internal organizations, we use it for experienced recruiting as well as campus recruiting and it allows me to view the student specific information I need such as major and GPA, but that we don't require for our experienced candidates. Being able to customize page layouts, applications, candidate next steps and more makes it a strong program.
