Bad experience. After several interviews made in several months, with lot of hours invested, just received an standard email rejecting me. I beleive this is not the right way

This software is so automated it's screening out well qualified applicants all the time. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR YOUR BUSINESS. An applicant recently applied for one of our positions and within hours got a rejection letter, Luckily the candidate contacted us directly and we were able to accommodate them in the hiring process. This has happened MANY times before.

Having used several ATS' for the last 20 years, I rank Jobvite exceedingly poor. Several examples; 1. Given that it is requisition centric, every time a candidate applies, it becomes a new file. Candidate notes from one requisition's conversation DO NOT flow into a common area. 2. You cannot sort effectively on a person's current job title. 3. Poor Boolean search tool. 4. No way to eliminate duplicates from the search results. 5. Jobvite is usually a very slow system. 6. Inadequate reporting tools. 7. Customer service makes lots of promises and very rarely does anything to solve issues. 8. Impossible to parse multiple resumes with Hire. 9. Most expensive (even for their lowest level) I have ever used; and least productive
As a recruiter, I am called upon to find the right people in an efficient fashion; Jobvite hinders this greatly.
I have been on several technical calls; calls where we put up a requisition as an example. Each time I have been severely underwhelmed at their ability to see the issue or help remedy.
I would not recommend Jobvite to any company that needs to be able to search candidates. Jobvite will really only work for those companies that will only need to see a resume the first time it comes in; if you need to search those that have applied in the past, you will not be happy.

I have used several different ATS and Jobvite is my favorite. It is easy to use, has great dashboards and reporting. I would recommend having a good plan on how you would like to use Jobvite, including recruitment process and what data you would like to get from the system. That way you can set it up optimally. I particularly like the tasks so that I can set reminders for myself and others to contact candidates or follow something up.

It's very frustrating when you don't know if the message you are sending as a hiring manager or a candidate will get to the other side. Something that we as a society are used to by 2017 is that simple messaging tools do their jobs reliably - Jobvite hasn't been able to do that.
Review by Possetta2 years ago
Have been using this system for over 1 year now and still cannot stand it. It is the primary tool I need to use and it is very frustrating. During my annual review this year, my manager asked my hiring managers for feedback on my performance and when they responded they also gave her feedback on how horrible Jobvite is. Job descriptions aren't able to be saved and need to be pasted in each time you post a position. Offer letters need to be downloaded and then uploaded in order to make and save changes. Its too manual. The system we had previously was 10,000 times better and I wish we could go back.

As a hiring manage who is *not* part of HR, I was able to see Jobvite from a different angle. I found it easy to work with and was able to effectively collaborate with the HR contacts assigned to my positions. We could easily see the status of each candidate, comment, etc. I like working in Jobvite.
Review by Armond2 years ago
I got stuck with Jobvite while I was a hiring manager at two prior companies. I honestly hated it. Logging in was a chore. Filtering through applicants and looking at my candidate pool took multiple clicks and was super slow/ frustrating. My recruiter could never get anyone from my team to put feedback in the system, partly because the feedback forms we had to fill in didn't match the role. At all. And I couldn't find people that I was sure were supposed to be in our pipeline.

Jobvite is a great web-based ATS solution for employers looking for a company-branded career page that also offers ATS functionality. They are a great option if you are looking to tap into the social and mobile recruiting platforms, offering easy integration with job boards and social sites such as LinkedIn, Indeed, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Jobvite helps you manage your recruiting process from beginning to end, helping you to make your process more efficient and effective by offering data-driven analytics.
Overall, we have been really pleased with the functionality of Jobvite, and would recommend to others looking for a similar solution.

I am an HR Recruiter for a multi-channel marketing and product development company specializing in labor law, HR and tax solutions that create a bridge between what the law requires and what makes sense for businesses. We have large volumes of applications through Jobvite's system and have found it to be an extremely simple way to organize our candidates applications. What a great system to use starting from the application process to the interviewing process to hiring and filling the position and even once the employee is employed. Their customer service and online help tools are great. We have weekly webinars with an account manager who talks us through any updates or problems we're experiencing and allows us to ask questions along the way. I would recommend Jobvite to all Recruiters and HR Professionals looking for a great simple to use ATS.
Review by Clauda3 years ago
So far I have found Jobvite user friendly. There are a few small changes I would like to see made, for example: being about to see hired employees resumes after they start. I am not the main Admin. I use Jobvite for the HR function and am unable to go back to Jobvite to view even my resume. Overall, great customer service and I am happy with the service
Review by Rogue3 years ago
Overall Jobvite is a pretty user-friendly applicant tracking system. It takes minimal training with hiring managers and definitely helps keep the recruitment process organized. Integrates with our company website seemlessly and makes broadcasting openings very easy witht he social media connecting tools.
Some of the areas needing improvement:
Like many ATS softwares, it's only as good as the usage of the system. It definitely leaves some things to be desired in getting less-tech savvy managers to use the system.
Also, I wish that when you posted a position, the software would pull candidates that are in your candidate job bank that may be well qualified for the position or have applied for similar positions in the past. It's great to have 10,000+ resumes, but it'd be nice if they were recalled for similiar positions.
It would be nice if the system would send "follow up" reminders to be sure that you close the loop with the candidates that you have interviewed,but decided not to move forward with. It would also be nice if the scheduling system would integrate with google or outlook calendars so that hiring managers could easily schedule without bouncing between the website and our own calendaring system.
Overall, it's one of the better ATS systems I've used, but there's still room for improvement.

I have used Jobvite for the past three years. Jobvite has gone above and beyond our expectations! As an ATS administrator at my company, I've worked with numerous systems and I'd recommend Jobvite over all of them. It allows us to provide the best experience for our candidates using Jobvite's workflow steps and communication capabilities. The reporting features have allowed us to continue to grow and provide feedback to our team. Jobvite has taken suggestions/wants/needs and turned them into product features.

Jobvite made my interview process very easy. I was able to quickly view the necessary information for my interviewee.
Review by Michellehellsbells3 years ago
Overall, Jobvite is a good platform. The video interview is one of my favorite features--it has really helped us screen candidates before inviting them for interviews. And the interface is aesthetically more appealing than other similar systems I've worked with. That said, I've had a few issues with Jobvite, including emails sent through the system going to spam folders, where applicants never find them. I also find myself clicking around Jobvite A LOT, and the pages load slowly (granted, this could be an issue with my company's wifi). For example, I wish there was a way for me to easily navigate back to a requisition page from a candidate's page without having to click at least two times. Another thing is that my coworkers just don't seem motivated to use the Jobvite feature, which is a huge part of the Jobvite platform. Maybe we're a too-small company to really take advantage of it, but I also had a problem where the links in my Employee Jobvite weren't indicating which employee had made a referral, and that issue was never resolved by Jobvite support (and more recently, Employee Jobvites started throwing up spam/phishing warning messages in my coworkers' inboxes). I've had great success speaking with Jobvite support people via chat, and I really appreciate that function. Finally, it would be VERY helpful if I were able to change the workflow for a position on my own. Having to go through Jobvite support is a real pain and time waster.
As I said, I enjoy using Jobvite overall, and I understand that it's a very complicated platform with a lot of moving parts. I wonder whether creating a version of Jobvite for small businesses would make sense--there are so many functions I don't use, simply because my company has less than 50 employees and they're irrelevant to us. I'd love a more streamlined version.
Review by AJMitchell3 years ago
Overall, we've had a decent transition over to Jobvite. It is our organization's first ATS and we purchased Engage at the same time. With Hire, the functionality of reporting and integration with gcal and gmail has been invaluable to our team. The formatting for our job board is finicky, but functional. However, customer service was mixed until we found a dedicated person to help us. Once we found her, she's been great!
With Engage, we were sold a product that didn't work as promised. (The job notification feature does not work and the "seamless" integration with Hire wasn't working - resumes were not transferring). Customer service complaints have gone unresolved for months. Emails with people on the Engage team have not been responded to. So while I'd recommend Hire, I would think twice before purchasing Engage.
Review by Stefansson3 years ago
I think Jobvite is a great tool. I think there are little things that could help to make the moving between candidates/job descriptions/postings etc. a little more fluid especially with larger recruitment effort.
I have also had a few timing issues with customer support. I had an urgent request (needed for legal reasons) for information within 24 hours. This was in March, never received the requested information. I had to chase them for days and weeks. It was not ideal.
Review by Bublz3 years ago
- Jobvite publisher - able to distribute jobs to your employees social media pages
- Integration friendly - Especially with HRIS systems (i.e. Workday)
- Many canned integrations
- Top notch fast customer service responses
- Customization - you pick what fields you want
Reporting - every field is reportable and since the software is so customizable you pick what is reportable
None - You would be hard pressed to find an ATS system that has more functionality than Jobvite does. If Jobvite doesn't currently have an offering it is working on it. The newly released product roadmap has many offerings on it that was on my wish list.
Source Tracking - Tracks the click through and hard codes this to the candidate profile
Reporting - OFCCP reporting, EEO Reporting, allows for a more data driven company culture
Pre-Interview Forms - Knock out questions, Knock in Questions
Review by VitaminDdeficient Nassl3 years ago
I use Jobvite everyday as my company's chosen ATS. I think Jobvite's updates have made the product more intuitive and useful on a daily basis. I wish there was a capacity to customize the homepage and move the different boxes around based on what I use the most. Besides that, I am happy with the internal platform communication and scheduling, as well as the ability to stay organized with the use of filtered search.
Review by ARahim3 years ago
I've found that as a user, Jobvite isn't as customizable or as intuitive as I'd prefer. Some functions that would make my life a whole lot better either require a customer service rep to set up or simply don't exist. However, one of their support representatives has been extremely helpful whenever I call in- unfortunately (fortunately for him), he has been promoted and will no longer be answering my calls.
Review by Wrigs3 years ago
UI is not intuitive, or pleasant.
Formatting job descriptions is a mess - gets messed up easily and is a headache to sort out.
Workflow makes it difficult to move canddiates around req's easily.
No easy way to see summary of candidate's info (job history, education) in a pipeline.
Reporting is difficult from here.
Review by DavidBrittain3 years ago
We've been using Jobvite for 2 years and have been very pleased. The Jobvite referral system is especially easy to use and we've had great success with our employee's sharing out our jobs on various social media platforms!
Review by Narna3 years ago
Jobvite was an innovative company when they first started out, but they haven't innovated their product much since then. Their product lacks mobile features, in depth reporting, and a modernized UI.
However the product is better than a Taleo, SuccessFactors, iCIMS, or Kenexa type product.
Review by Shennun3 years ago
I work for a company who has large volumes of applications through Jobvite's system. I have found it extremely easy to use, from applications through to hiring. Their customer service is great. We have weekly meetings with an account manager who lets us know any new features, talks us through any problems we're experiencing and allows us to ask more in depth questions. I would recommend any company considering using them as their ATS.
Review by AnniHardy3 years ago
- Flexible and allows user to be in control of most things, not much support needed from customer service
- Easy to use, customize and manage candidates
- Would be nice if there were more filtering options to find candidates that better match the job description
