Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Recruitee pricing:
  • "Its pricing is quite reasonable. Recruitee was more favorable price-wise as compared to other solutions."
  • "When we bought it, it was good in terms of quality and cost. It was not very expensive, but I heard that quite soon after that, they changed their way of pricing, which meant that the price went up quite substantially. Earlier, you had to just pay for the number of vacancies or slots that you wanted to use in the organization. We bought 10 slots, and they changed that system. I don't know how it works now because I don't work there anymore. Licensing was on a yearly basis. You selected a number of slots and paid for that year. You could buy more, but you couldn't go for less. We had to pay a setup or implementation fee. Support was included in the license."
  • "It was amazing, but right now, they got more expensive due to the different plans that they offer. They offer basic, intermediate, and advanced plans. It used to be really easy. You could just have a number of slots as vacancies, and that's what you paid for. Now, you pay for the number of slots and the plan you have, and it got a lot more expensive. I think we had a 40% increase in price. Support is always included in the license."

A solid, easy-to-use, and simple solution that quickens the hiring process and supports a lot of automation

What is our primary use case?

The company that I worked with was a hiring company here in Saudi Arabia. We were working to build a hiring platform. We used Recruitee in-house for the company, and we found it to be such a useful and efficient platform that we started to use it as our tool until we can build our own platform or hiring tool. It was SaaS at first, and then we hosted it on our own.

Pros and Cons

  • "In general, the platform is very simple to customize. We have previously used different ERP/funneling platforms, such as Pipedrive. They were all great, but they were very complicated to set up and very confusing. Getting someone completely new to use them was a pretty big headache, but Recruitee is very easy to use. It is very easy to get someone completely new to learn everything and use the project in one day. It provides the ease of onboarding people and the ease of use. It is not trying to be more than it is. It is just about hiring, and it focuses just on the hiring process, communicating with people, and going to multiple hiring stages. Most ERP/hiring solutions have massive integrations and customizations. They try to provide a lot of things in the platform, but Recruitee is there just to recruit. It is very linear. It just does its job well and doesn't try to be what it is not."
  • "One of the minor problems was that when we sent mass emails to every applicant at one stage, some people didn't receive the email. It would go into some kind of a spam box or something. It took us quite a while to figure this out. Of course, this is a general problem with emails, but some other platforms have better ways to find this, warn, or give you best practices. With Recruitee, it took us quite a while to figure out that the problem is happening and how to deal with it. That was one of the minor issues. Another issue was related to communication. They have a support team, but it takes quite a while to hear back on some of the issues. They don't work on weekends. It was a little unusual for a SaaS product."

What other advice do I have?

I mainly recommend Recruitee for startups. The way they work is that they are free up to a certain amount of emails gives you a pretty wide scope to work with, especially as a startup. There is also the ease of setup. Any intern in your team can set it up, manage it, and go through it. You don't have to worry about that. Other than for conglomerate companies that tend to have a really complex hiring process and need ten different integrations, Recruitee is generally a pretty good, solid, and simple recruiting solution. If you're not sure, you can very easily just try it for free. The trial…

A user-friendly solution that provides a good overview and the flexibility to alter the funnel and assign tasks

What is our primary use case?

I was working for a company with about 150 employees, and they had about 10 vacancies in a year. They did not have any ATS, and they wanted to implement an ATS system. They decided on Recruitee. We were using the enterprise version.

Pros and Cons

  • "What really impressed me was the ease with which you could alter the funnel. You could add steps to the funnel or just leave steps out. It provided flexibility. You could also assign specific people in the organization per vacancy. It is user-friendly, and it has a very good overview. When you open the screen with all the vacancies, it is very easy to see your overview. You can also assign the tasks that you have to somebody, which is something that not every system has."
  • "We found the evaluation of interviews offered in Recruitee too complicated, so we didn't use that. They offer a way to rate and evaluate interviews, but it was a little bit more complicated, so we didn't use that. It was also a little bit harder to find where this feature was located. What surprised me was that if you have one vacancy and you want to announce it, for example, in the Netherlands in Dutch and also in English, that wasn't possible. In such a case, you need to open two vacancies, but then, of course, your reporting is off. It would be really beneficial if they can offer the possibility of posting one position in multiple languages. In this particular organization, it was not really that much of an issue because it was a local organization. I understood from the person responsible for connecting Recruitee to career sites that there were some things that you struggled with, especially with regards to banners, pictures, photos, and things like that. I did not do it myself. On the backend, I personally didn't really have any issues. It could maybe have integration with Outlook so that you can plan interviews straight from the system, and they also show up in the Outlook calendars of the managers."

What other advice do I have?

It works best if you have a very clear picture of your recruitment process so that you can create the funnel that suits you best. I would advise working closely with somebody who has a lot of knowledge of how your own website is built up so that you can make the connection easily. My biggest tip for others is to look into the training of the users. A lot of times, the hiring managers say that it is easy, and they have understood, but when they start working with it, it turns out that they don't understand it sufficiently. The lesson that I learned is that you really have to take time to train…

Good privacy, intuitive, and saves time, but needs a better GDPR system and more customizations

What is our primary use case?

I use Recruitee for corporate recruitment. I post all our vacancies in Recruitee, and they automatically get posted on Indeed and Google for jobs. I then add another couple of promotions there. I basically manage the whole process from Recruitee. I am using its Enterprise version.

Pros and Cons

  • "I really like the privacy within Recruitee. I can add multiple hiring managers and manage all different vacancies without them having or being able to see what's going on in other vacancies. It is quite easy to use. I can easily add another colleague. It is straightforward and intuitive. I don't even have to explain to hiring managers how it works for us because they are able to figure it out once they click on it."
  • "The GDPR system needs some improvement. They say that you automatically have approval when you just add a CV. I might not have even asked for it. I would like to have a better GDPR system that asks or sends a request for saving data. It is not completely customizable. Sometimes, I can't do the things that I want to do. I would like to edit our career website, but I can only change the main page of our career website. I can't change the layout or pictures within our vacancies. They have it all automized to disable. We do everything that we can to make it as good as we can for Google for jobs, but I miss some of the checkpoints for Google for jobs, and I can't edit them myself."

What other advice do I have?

It is so easy to use, and it works well for corporate recruitment. If you use it for corporate and that's it, it is good. It is a good solution if you want something that is just easy and manageable and not that difficult for people you work with, You can easily set it up for your career website. It is pretty much like an easy step into an APS system if you've never worked with something before. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Recruitee is to do really good negotiations beforehand regarding scalability. Scalability was something that we really struggled with in this system. I…
