Fantastic - HireHive is a great software at an affordable price that helps me streamline recruitment. The team are a pleasure to work with.
HireHive is a great Applicant Tracking System. I’ve changed roles twice since I started using the software (when it was called Zartis) and have introduced it to both companies. I've worked in the Software Industry and is Financial Services and have found this software equally effective in both. In a standalone HR role, it is important for me to have the most efficient process for both hiring managers and candidates – HireHive helps me achieve this.
The software is easy to use and the HireHive team provide excellent service when needed. They care about candidates and their clients – they are quick to respond and the way the product has developed over the years takes into consideration changing requirements. There are regular updates and enhancements to the software which take into account feedback they have received from clients.
Here are a few features I really like:
-Immediate job posting (linked to job boards and pushed to other social media avenues)
-Customised emails to candidates – this makes responding to every candidate easy (and quick).
-Delayed email replies.
-Notes section – easy way to track information and communicate with the hiring team.
-Reporting and Analysis
I honestly can't think of what I like least - it's come along way since I first starting using the software and has developed over the years to one I find is really helpful. Features that were once on the wish list are now live in the product.
Thank you Hilary for your feedback and for your constant support!

The biggest benefit to me as the sole recruiter in my company is the time the platform saves me in terms of communicating with candidates and internally with Hiring Managers. My policy is to respond to every single candidate that applies to us here at CurrencyFair, and Hirehive allows me to do send a personalized email, with the relevant tailored message to each candidate, with only a few clicks.
Hirehive is by far the best recruitment system I've experienced in terms of ease of use. It's clear the team at Hirehive care about the UX from the perspective of both the Candidate and Recruiter, and they are committed to ensuring users have the least amount of clicks to perform tasks, which pleases me! And best of all is that it is both configurable and customizable at Admin level; something you don't always get with this kind of software, giving me full control over how my hiring managers use the system, and how I categorize my candidate pipeline. At a basic functionality level, it does exactly what a good ATS should do, but there are little extras that make my life much easier so I can get on with the other element of my HR role. Some of my favorite product features include:
I can move candidates between jobs if I think an applicant is more suited to a different role.
At a glance, the pipeline is very clear to see per role, so I can clearly see what stage I'm at for each role.
Quick and easy reporting which means I don't have to do any analysis at my end to gather insights.
I can respond to candidates via email and HH will track this.
Quick and easy to make notes on candidates and attach files. This might sound like a standard feature but I've used other systems that haven't supported this.
I can shortlist with just one or two clicks.
Setting up interviews is easy and intuitive from an admin perspective and also for the hiring manager.
There may be some work required to make the mobile version a little easier to navigate - perhaps some bugs here
Hi Emma, thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of HireHive!
We have been using HireHive (previously Zartis) for over 3 years, it's a key software management tool for us.
There are a number of features that we like, its cloud based so it doesn't matter where we are located, we can log in and manage our activity. It is also very time efficient, a lot of the functionality is automated we particularly like the fact that it links to social medial sites and job boards with just one click, so that saves us huge time.
Over the past year, we have seen really great improvements to the site, things like their reporting functionality is much better and you can now run a variety of reports of the data that is there, and even display it in graphic format, so nice images for our reports to clients.
So far candidates seem to find it easy to operate too which is really important for us.
We can list a number of pros to using Hirehive, certainly one of the things is that it is very cost effective, so it makes good sense to use it for even a few jobs. We have used it to hire over 100 peole in the past year and it certainly can cope with high volume activity - obviously we've managed thousands of CV through it.
Another good thing about is the dashboard summay, you can see where you are on each job you have open at a glance and then can click into a role for more data if you need it.
The automated list to job boards and to social media sites is a bit thing too - saves huge time for us so that definitely a positive.
a lot of the cons have been ironed out over the past year, as they have made really good improvements to a number of the areas.
Thank you for your review. We're delighted to be working with you at Voltedge and it's great to hear that you enjoy using HireHive.
It's been great. The team at HireHive has been so accommodating and supportive. They have taught us so much about how to attract and hire great candidates. I can strongly recommend HireHive to any business, regardless of the size or sector to try HireHive's free trial today. It will transform how you hire!
During the 14 day free trial I was amazed at the number of applicants we had apply. We had our first hire before we'd even decided to use HireHive as our full time ATS. Now that we use it everyday, it's become essential to our business. I find it intuitive to use and the job integration on our website is seamless. It's functionality has grown with our business. Every time we've thought of a feature that would be helpful we were pleased to see it was already available or that it was under construction, soon to be ready with the next update. Customer service is excellent.
I wish there was a quick search feature / look up that allowed us to see 'new' applicants - regardless of the job they've applied for. I'd like to be able to see who newly applied to various jobs overnight.
I'd also like a check box - a flexible 'to do list' - attached to each candidate to help track applicants progress through the screening, interviewing and hiring process. Something with reminders that nudges you to follow up or even nudges the candidate to follow up.
Thanks so much Jeff for your feedback and for your support! We are delighted to be working with you at Byron Recruitment.

After requesting a trial of HireHive 6 months ago. I decided after a brief run through of the system, that this was exactly what I was looking for as Recruitment Manager of Westbourne IT. We cancelled our subscription to our previous candidate management system and signed up. HireHive makes managing the interview process easy and transparent for all our admin users and hiring managers. It allows me to send emails directly to candidates at the click of a button based on whether we are progressing or regretting them. All email templates can be customised to our liking. HireHive is the best recruitment tool that I have used and would highly recommend it.
Love the flexibility around upgrading my current plan, we have the option to change this on a monthly basis.
Very easy to add new candidates to the system that have come through a different job board.
Very intuitive and easy to use.
The support team are always online to answer any questions I have had in the past.
Would be great if the system would flag duplicate email addresses. Sometimes candidates can apply to the same job a number of times if I renew a post.
Thanks for your review of HireHive. We are delighted to that you are enjoying using our software. Regarding flagging duplicate email addresses - you can now see if a candidate has applied for a position numerous times in the candidate profile. There will be a list of all past applications indicating that the candidate has applied previously. We hope this helps.
We were looking for a solid ATS to post our vacancies on, through which we could share them on linkedin and other social media platforms. Hirehive is a great option because it automatically posts all your jobs on job boards and ensures all applications are stored safely in the system. It is easy to use, cheap and intuitively built. I highly recommend it to any company who needs to structure their recruitment processes and comply with GDPR.
-The tool's simple structure and layout make it very easy to use and very intuitive.
-It comes at a very affordable price making it ideal for companies of any size.
-The reporting metrics are basic however they do cover the essential information.
-Their staff is extremely helpful and very friendly.
-They are very happy to incorporate feedback!
It doesn't have any of the fancier attributes of modern ATS' (automated push notifications to get back to candidates, advanced and predictive analytics, etc) but if one plans their work properly this is no real obstacle.
Thanks so much Carlos for your support and your feedback!

The system was super fast to set up and learn. We didn't want to invest a lot of time in a new system so this was important for us. We've been using it for about 3 years and wouldn't be able to manage our recruitment without it.
Easy to use. Low cost. Does what it says on the tin.
Replying to notes and emails from candidates could be made easier.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of HireHive. We are currently updating replying to notes and emails so hope this will improve the process for you.
Hirehive is the great ATS that gives you all the functionality that you need for your internal HR system (referrals) as well external system where you can post instantly on dozen relevant job boards in our case IT, and get immediately dozen applicants within a couple hours. So far there was no technical problems and no bugs so it looks reliable
We like the speed and realibilty as well as the UI. Publishing of the new roles takes 30 seconds to become live so need to waiting for a long time. Also applicants can be tag very easily in system and you can see their CV immeditaly in browser rather than downloading and then openning again. So in over all HireHive is fast, clean ,reliable and functional and I don't know what else you need to have in order to do your work. Also it's affordable.
Probably you should add more features in system ( like calling from browser,video,forecasting)
Thanks very much for your review Marko. We are continually looking at adding more features to the system and are always interested in hearing customer feedback to guide these.
You can easily add your candidates and see what stage they are at in the process immediately. The design is great and everything you need to manage the candidates is in one place. Customer support are also amazing and always there to help. The tips on the website are also very helpful.
Another thing I love is that HireHive automatically posts your job ad onto several sites which means you don't have to, adding the job to one site saves so much time.
Thanks for your review Ellen! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience of HireHive.
We've been using it for about five years (prior to branding change). It started out as a fairly basic platform, but has been continually enhanced - often in response to direct feature requests.
Dashboard, easy candidate funnel & metrics, social sharing, management of candidate communications.
Would like to have more users included in the pricing.
Hi Barry, thanks for your review. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with HireHive. Regarding user limitations - you can now have unlimited users on all pricing plans so you can add as many admins/hiring managers as you need. We hope that this is helpful. Thanks again for sharing your feedback.
I have been using HireHive as an internal ATS tool at Zartis. It is easy to navigate, communicate with candidates and my colleagues and handle vacancies on job boards. Comparing to other ATS I used previously, HireHive is very easy to understand even for people who have never worked with this kind of software.
Great design, all features you need to handle candidate's applications are available, very easy and fast to navigate.
Thanks for your review Monika, appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.
Hirehive was the software in my old job and I decided to buy a license for my current one because of the team, the best time ever, very polite and always present to help.
Best communication, time and software in one place.
- Team interaction.
- Costumer service team
- Time to update the information, some times takes over 1min.
Hi Juracy, thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of HireHive!
Prior to Hire Hive we were using multiple spreadsheets to record CV's received and sent on to the hiring managers. The system has eliminated 4 spreadsheets so far and hours of administration to get accurate metrics.
Hire Hive has also given us the transparency we needed between the HR dept. and the Hiring Managers.
I like the fact that a candidates, full story is available on one page. The fact that we can upload adhoc applications is also great so we can have accurate metrics for reporting purposes.
I would like to be able to send a batch of CV's to a hiring manager rather than have to send them individually.
I would also like an automated email sent to the candidate when they are progressed along the pipeline.
Thanks so much for taking the time to share your review of HireHive Catherine!

We are a small nonprofit and were looking for a hiring solution that would fit our needs. We do hiring occasionally and we have a very tight budget. HireHive provided us their solution for one tenth (TENTH) the cost of the previous solution we were using, and it provided virtually the same feature sets. It is a *tiny* bit buggy, but it seems like this is more due to just being a new tool. I would expect most of the (very minor) issues we faced to be gone in a month or two. They are constantly improving, adding new features, and fixing any issues that come up. They are *extremely* responsive to any customer input, and have a great support staff. THE best tool for the money, hands down. We would highly recommend HireHive! We are currently using it for three open positions, and it's working wonderfully.
Thanks for your review Emily. Delighted to be working with you guys at Phoenix Bioinformatics!
Outstanding customer support, on an almost personal level. No query is too small or too large for them to deal with which makes a world of difference when you are learning a new platform, especially when you are scaling up.
Hi, thanks very much for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience of HireHive.
Unlimited storage of candidates which can be used for future reference and excellent support provided by the team at Hirehive
Recruitment agencies are unable to upload candidates onto the software, however they are working on an update to include this
Thanks for your review Stephen. We released our agency portal last month so recruitment agencies can now submit candidates and all information is fully tracked within the system. Thanks for helping us continue to improve HireHive!
HireHive has been a great aid in the recruitment process.
It has everything you need to manage your candidates applications in one place, Great customer support, always there to answer any questions,
It is easy to navigate with all features that you need - Very user- friendly
Hi Laura, thank you for taking the time to write a review of HireHive!
I was put off by many enterprise solutions that are available. Enterprise software looks awful and is impossible to get up and running. You need a degree in physics!
HireHive has many features on offer that we like. Scheduling of interviews, the reports section is comprehensive, and ability to create job categories is excellent.
A hiring team member originally discovered this system after demoing many other systems. The demo with hire hive was really good and Siobhan, the person who brought us through the system made us feel that this would be the most robust solution for us. Needless to say it was a quick setup and the HR dept was up and running quickly. We are very happy customers.
Thanks for your review Killian.
Easy to use and service has been very good. All Agencies and all CVs come through there so easy to track duplicates. Would be good to have it talk to outlook diaries and also have SMS capabilities.
Thanks for your review Colm. We are delighted to be working with Storm to help you grow your team. We are currently working on calendar integration which will be released in January.
When choosing an ATS system we were looking for ease of use, something quick and good reporting. Price was also an issue.
We are glad that we chose HireHive. It met all our criteria. The custom careers site is also great as we don't have one ourselves. It looks great.
Noting bad to say about it. It's clean and robust.
Nice team too.
I have worked with the old and new version and have always been impressed by the responsiveness of the team and the ability to fix and problems quickly and effectively. The software is great and the team are continuously working to improve it and are willing to listen to suggestions and implement if at all possible. Highly recommend it.
This product takes a huge load off of recruiters. This product can be a life saver if your company is running lean in recruiting. It gives the candidates a better experience as well.
Thanks for your review!
I find HireHive is easy to navigate. It allows me to post jobs to multiple job boards and easily track and manage my candidates.
