Allows us to manage a large amount of candidates at a large amount of sites and still be very site specific

What is our primary use case?

On the day-to-day basis, we use Jobvite as an applicant tracking system to track all of the candidates that we have in process. We use it to push out interviews. We use it to notify hiring managers of candidates that are interviewed. We use it for its evaluation piece to evaluate candidates after their interviews. We use it to connect it to our website to do our advertising, we push advertising out to Jobvite. We manage our third party vendors through that system and allow them to help us track the resumes they submit to us and we input them into the system. It is used to make offers and to… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I have found most valuable is the interview schedule piece. This allows me to see what interviews are going on. It allows me to put them on my calendar and to track that piece so that I can follow up both with my candidate and with my hiring manager."
  • "Sometimes it seems, for whatever reason, that not all of the messaging goes through. I don't know if that's an internal email issue or that's an email issue with them. So I will externally follow up a lot of my communication through Microsoft Outlook as my own redundancy to make sure that my messages get out."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone considering Jobvite is to make sure you have a well-documented workflow process, make sure that you understand what you're going to ask Jobvite to do, make sure that you cover all those aspects of it, and make sure that you understand it. From the beginning - how you want the resumes to be routed, how you want interviews to happen, how you want job offers to happen, how you want to do evaluations, to make sure that you have your process done and documented in all of the different areas that you're going to have. Make sure you have that on the front end so that Java can be…

Helps companies get organized, but the user experience could be better

What is our primary use case?

I'm a technical recruiter. I'm mostly using Jobvite to track candidates who have applied for jobs or who I have reached out to. But the fundamental use case is for collecting information on candidates who've applied for jobs and checking them, managing them, communicating with a candidate, communicating with people in my company about the job application, and about the collection of candidates who had applied for a particular job. I report on the status of the candidates who were in the process. It's the kind of the standard collection of things that a recruiter would do in regards to an… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Having an applicant tracking system like Jobvite helps companies get organized."
  • "The user experience can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not a big fan, and I don't find it especially valuable. There's a couple of the products that I've used that I would recommend over it, but it does the basics that you need from an applicant tracking system. I would advise potential Jobvite users to look at Greenhouse and Lever as well. Make sure that the people who are actually going to be using the system, particularly the people in the recruiting department, are really comfortable with the functionality and the user experience and the reporting. The challenging thing about many of these things is that they may look good on a demo, but…

Needs improvements to integration, confidentiality and managing a candidate's journey

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution for all of our work recruiting. We posted jobs and we helped candidates go through our recruitment journey on the system.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to manage and track candidates in one place, and also when you are scheduling is a plus."
  • "It has very inefficient, integration capabilities with the HRS systems"

What other advice do I have?

For external hires, we predominantly used this solution. We also do a lot of internal hires and because of the issue with the solution not allowing for confidentiality, it is pretty problematic when you are moving people around internally. In the future, I do not think we will use this solution again. I rate Jobvite a three out of ten.

It saves a lot of time and has a really nice scheduling feature for scheduling interviews, and their customer service is amazing

What is our primary use case?

I use it for posting jobs on our website and applicant tracking. I enter a job opening into the system, and then it posts the job onto our website from there. I also use it for scheduling interviews for candidates and documenting the candidate interview process.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has a really nice scheduling feature, which is very valuable for scheduling interviews. It is an automated feature and one of my favorite things about Jobvite. The other thing that I like about Jobvite is customer service. Their customer service is amazing, and they're constantly improving it and making it better. Jobvite also integrates with LinkedIn."
  • "Its reporting feature can be improved. Reporting is currently not user friendly, and it is just complicated. If you want specific reports that aren't available within the system, then you have to pay extra. We don't use Jobvite for onboarding or payroll. They have the option, but we don't use them for onboarding or payroll. We strictly use it just for the recruiting cycle. If we did have a more comprehensive package with them, the reporting might not be so bad. One thing that kind of bothers me is the fact that you can have somebody apply to several different requisitions, and the notes don't merge together because it is requisition-focused. In other words, it is not strictly candidate-focused, which is kind of a pain sometimes. You have to go back and forth with the notes if somebody applies, or you could miss some important information."

What other advice do I have?

Based on prior experience with other ATS systems in my career, this solution is more requisition-focused and strictly for the recruiting process. I would rate Jobvite a nine out of ten.
