Streamlined our recruitment

Reviewed on 2019/01/17

The overall experience so far has been extraordinary. Their customer service is spot on and very attentive to our specific needs. Whenever we have had a question about the product or the functionality, their team was on top of it and we never had to wait for a response.

Pros

The software allowed us to easily streamline our recruitment process and event management at large recruitment events. We have about 60 people actively recruiting at an event for a number of positions so the traffic through the booth is always chaotic. When we implemented the Yello software into our process, we were able to streamline communications with the staff in the booth, interview times, communicate easily with potential candidates, collect resumes and applications and offer job offers all from the app.

Cons

The limit on the number of events allowed per year is a drawback. When we purchased the app we received 25 events but our organization consists of 7 smaller organizations and combined does well above that amount. When we tried to purchase add on events with our software, the cost was just as much as the entire software package which made it kind of silly to purchase additional events where we could purchase the service for each organization instead.

Yello

Reviewed on 2019/04/25

Pros

- It streamlines the recruitment process, you don’t have to contact internally overtime to update status of candidate to on same level and upper level as well. The team can easily communicate, collect resume, interview schedule, arrange meetings of management with the candidate, on board them and offer job.
- As Microsoft excel have now disabled the feature of sharing sheet more than one user at a time. In Yello all the employees can work at the same time on the same place.
- The support team is on their feet when you need them no complaints on this one.

Cons

- That’s a bit expensive compared to other software offering more features and services
- The dashboard can be more impressive and need more improvement.
- Here number of events per year are limited. You need to update that as you need by paying more.
- Only a super admin can merge all the duplicates. Not everyone has equal rights.
- There is no task sheet & option to see the reminders.
- It's been 9 years since it is in the market, but still product has a scope of improvement.

Yello for Talent Acquisition

Reviewed on 2018/09/19

Pros

Great tool ! Used the tool while attending job fairs / university recruiting events and candidates can sign up and upload their profile/resume very quickly and easily. Great filters to segment the candidate database as per your need and requirement. You can send bulk emails at once to reach out to all the contacts.

Cons

The dashboard can be a little better to use

Lackluster for the price

Reviewed on 2018/03/21

Pros

I used Yello in the past, and nothing stood out to me a pro. They sell you on all the bells and whistles, but it is very expensively priced software for what you get. Maybe the history behind the name of the company - that the founder would answer the phone as 'Yello?' instead of 'hello?' - fun fact

Cons

We later opted for another service that we could do everything we needed it to, was about 1/5 the price and even offers a free version that most companies would find helpful in the talent acq world.

Hard to use software for recruiting

Reviewed on 2020/02/16

Pros

It has the ability to store a lot, and you can set up events ahead of time. It has the ability to schedule interview slots so you don't have to manually assign each one.

Cons

Its sort features are really bad. It is hard to send emails to prospective candidates in batches, and hard to combine people's reviews of people. It is also hard to find the login page if you don't have it stored. When you google Yello you find its page to sell to new people as opposed to helping its existing clients.

The worst CRM system I have used in my career.

Reviewed on 2017/12/19

Pros

All of the employees can work in one place. It's better than an Excel spreadsheet, but that's about it.

Cons

Duplicates:
1. Only a super admin can merge duplicates.
2. When you search for a candidate, it will only pull up the name if it is exact. Example: Bill or William Smith. You can create a person that is already in the system if you don't put in their email.
Reminders:
1. You can't see a list of reminders created and there is no way to complete reminders. What about a task list? It literally doesn't exist in Yello.
Ease of use:
1. I don't have an issue using it, but my peers often ask me for help. It is not straight-forward.

I don't know how the system has been around for 9 years. Way behind its competitors.
