We use this solution to offer a quick and simple way for people to apply for jobs or just browse the job opportunities. We are using its Enterprise version.
As an HRIS analyst, I am working in the SmartRecruiters system on a daily basis. I have admin access, and I am also doing configurations in the system. We are using this solution for recruitments. We gather candidate data in the system and move them through the hiring process. We are using the latest Enterprise version of this solution. We most probably have a SaaS version.
It is fundamentally used for all internal and external resourcing at our company. It is the only tool that we use to manage all of our candidates. We are most likely using its latest version.
I use SmartRecruiters to collect resumes of the applicants who apply through our company's website or other websites like LinkedIn or Monster and analyze their keywords.
I used SmartRecruiters as a recruiter to fill roles at different companies and organizations.
Our primary use case with SmartRecruiters is as a recruitment or a talent acquisition platform. Our version is fully managed by SmartRecruiters.
Our main function for the solution is definitely for the applicant tracking system. Any position that we need to fill internally for the company, has to go through here. We go through our approval process with the different managers and then once it's approved, we post it. We use the product to source candidates, track our candidates throughout the interview process, collaborate with managers as well throughout the hiring process in terms of candidate feedback, and communicate with candidates as well. There's multiple different features and functions there, however, overall it's just an applicant tracking system, essentially.
We used this solution for recruitment and hiring. In the company that I used to work for, there were only three recruiters using this solution. There were an HR representative and a manager who were part of the recruiting team. Overall, within our organization, there were roughly 20 to 22 users who used SmartRecruiters. I dealt with large numbers of applicants — sometimes upwards of 500, depending on the position we were recruiting for.
We used SmartRecruiters as our sole recruitment platform. Basically, we were using an HR system that had a recruitment module before, and it wasn't very good. So, we were using this as a standalone recruitment tool for all of our recruiting needs across five main areas of work. Essentially, managing the whole end-to-end recruitment process. I used this program in my last role, which ended earlier in 2020.
The product was used while I was working at a Senior Living Medical Facility that did independent living. The organization did skilled nursing, and assisted living. When I got there, I came into an environment that was haphazard with recruiting. It was a subsidiary of a larger company, and all of the subsidiaries were doing things a little bit differently. Some had an HCM system, an Oracle-based system, and embedded in that Oracle system was Taleo. Others were just posting on Indeed. The community I came to, was going to the Indeed route. As an applicant in the past, when I'd used Oracle, and I've been a user of HR products throughout my career, it takes me 10 minutes to get through a Taleo-based applicant system, being a user of HR products. You have to watch how it parses your resume, you have to watch all of this stuff. I saw the cost that we were incurring on Indeed. And I made a change over to SmartRecruiters.
We are using this solution for a combination of things. We use it for sourcing candidates for posted positions, scheduling interviews, and running offers through the system. We are doing everything our of the system.
