Most intuitive and functional applicant tracking software yet!

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2018/02/27
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

I have used other applicant tracking software solutions before but they were often cumbersome to use or never had quite the right functionality that I wanted. I love ClearCompany so much because it truly has everything I need in an easy to use system. AND just when I think it couldn't be better they come up with new enhancements! I have, and will continue to recommend ClearCompany ATS to anyone who has recruiting responsibilities, especially if they are a government contractor!

Pros

Very intuitive and user friendly to use. Various ways to access information and sort information to see what you need. The Clear Company team is extremely responsive to providing help but also listening to suggestions for future improvements. Their support is top notch - from online training videos, to online chat and a customer success manager who not only cares but follows up (and not like other companies who will reach out when they want to sell me a new feature). I also attended their 2017 Talent Conference in Boston, which was really a great learning opportunity as well as to connect with my

Cons

I would not say there are any cons, but we live in a time where instant gratification has become the norm and expectation. There have been times when I have waited 30 - 60 min for a response to my online chat request. There are new reports I would like to have, but I know their reporting function just went under an overhaul and I am working on moving to the new platform soon, so I am excited to see what the new reporting capabilities are. The only other improvement I could suggest right now is to make this highly capable software to be better suited for a global company. We have business in India and ClearCompany has helped us to utilize their system for our recruiter in India, but there is still opportunity to improve the system for a company doing business overseas.

An essential Recruiter's tool - better than the competition

Reviewed on 2016/02/05
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

Pros

The ClearCompany applicant tracking system is very intuitive to use - for recruiters as well as hiring managers! You have many filters and options on how to see information as well, which is extremely helpful. There is so much functionality within the system, such as being able to forward a candidate to a manager, or replying to a candidate from the ATS and even having a copy of that email kept in the candidate's profile. You can add notes to each candidate (which I use constantly) and you also have a place to add notes that apply to the requisition (all candidates) including being able to attach documents, like Word.

Although I am a new user of 7 months, I have already seen that ClearCompany has made upgrades and changes to improve upon their system! I have given my account rep suggestions which he has eagerly listened to. My account rep is very responsive and quick to return any of my calls.

They have other options that I am not using yet, like an onboarding function or allowing candidates to use your calendar to schedule an interview with you as well as a resume database.

I am newer to the reporting functions and some of them are very helpful, but it seems others aren't working like they should be. I am working with support on this issue now.

Also, this system works with our payroll vendor, Paylocity, so that our candidate/new hire information will be sent to payroll (we are in the middle of this implementation now).

I LOVE the ClearCompany system and find it to be much better, more intuitive and highly functional over other ATS I have used in the past.

Cons

The only thing that I would improve at this time is some of the reporting functions aren't working as they should be. I don't think it's user error at this point, but I am working with support to get what I need.

I highly recommend ClearCompany

Reviewed on 2015/08/10
Review Source: GetApp

I have found the ClearCompany recruiting and onboarding modules very helpful and easy to use. Coming from our previous manual system, they have saved me a great deal of time. The best thing about ClearCompany, though, is their excellent customer service. When I need help, I can call and get real help from someone who actually works there, usually my account manager, not someone in a call center somewhere reading from a script. They are always very quick to address whatever concern I have. We are an energy company with over 200 employees in several states. Having an efficient, online onboarding process has streamlined HR's workflow, and being able to sort and categorize the thousands of applications we receive each year has saved us a great deal of time, and has eliminated the bottleneck we used to have in distributing resumes to the relevant department managers.

Pros

Customer service; our hiring managers have immediate access to resumes; efficient, streamlined onboarding process; customized forms

Cons

1. I'd like to see an integrated, easy way to sort applicants on our side. We get a huge number of applicants seeking all sorts of jobs we aren't advertising. We have two "General Consideration" requisitions set up to keep people from applying inappropriately for jobs that require special qualifications. I have not found the Talent Pool feature to be useful in sorting these candidates, so I set up many unposted requisitions that I forward those candidates into, based on what type of job they may be considered for in the future. This clogs up our requisition list, and takes extra time. It would be nice to have an assortment of buckets for these applicants that is seperate from the live requisitions, and with some automation as in the talent pool feature. For instance, they could be automatically sorted based on an answer to a screening question.
2. Also, it can take a while to get new forms built, or old ones changed. Sometimes they fix one piece on a form, and something else stops working. I would like for them to test the forms thoroughly to make sure they work before giving them to us. We have also had trouble printing some of the forms, because they aren't designed to be printed.

So Far So Good

Used Daily for 1-5 months
Reviewed on 2019/01/14
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

So far we have really enjoyed our move to Clear Company. The implementation team have been so very helpful in getting us up and running very quickly. We have weekly calls to make sure things are moving along the way they should, and I feel like I always have support if I need any help. The whole applicant tracking module is very customizable, so all of our needs were able to be met without a problem. Overall, so far I feel like it's worth the extra money we're paying (compared to our old system) to have such time savings and ease of use.

Pros

We purchased all three modules, but so far have only fully implemented one of them (applicant tracking). We are currently beginning implementation of the onboarding module, and the performance management module will be last. So far, we really like the applicant tracking module. Hiring managers have told me they find it easy to use, very intuitive and easy to figure out. I especially like the interview invitation piece, because it integrates with my Outlook calendar and the entire process is automated. No longer do I have to spend hours on the phone trying to schedule candidates for interviews... this system practically does it for me. I also really like the Scorecard feature, where I can route Scorecards with each application to the entire hiring team and have them review and score each candidate on their own. I can then review all of their notes and it helps me narrow down my search very quickly. So far I'm really enjoying the time savings that Clear Company has given me.

Cons

So far, there's really nothing I don't like about it. Again, we've only fully implemented one module, and have only been using it for a couple of weeks. But so far I really like everything about it. If I had to identify one con, it would be that there is an additional cost to add more than three customized forms in the onboarding module. But I'm working around that, so not a really big deal.

ClearCompany HRM Review

Used Daily for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2017/02/16
Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

All in all this has been a pretty good product for our organization. We were able to streamline our req approval process through the ATS and on top of that the reporting system is super robust. The reqs that you open can be automatically pushed to the larger job boards and on top of that you can set up knockout questions for candidates when they submit their application through the ATS. Our company will be transitioning out of ClearCompany to an HRIS but if we did not make the jump to the new system it is very liekly we would have re-upped with ClearCompany.

Pros

Candidate score card and marking system are pretty unique and different. You can set up triggers that parse the resume and pre-rank the candidates based on what is in there to sync up with your job qualifications...makes sourcing super easy. Candidate review process is pretty nice as well, you can 1 click push the candidate to the hiring managers for review.

Cons

Honestly, Their customer support is less than ideal. I think we cycled through 3 different reps on our account and we haven't even been with them for 2 years. That being said, it comes with the territory...we have had a couple ATS's and it always seems that is the case once you on-board as a client.

ClearCompany Main Features

Applicant Tracking

ClearCompany started out as an applicant tracking system and, over the years, has added new solutions and partnered with other vendors to become the end-to-end talent management software it is today. ClearCompany’s applicant tracking system carries functionalities that include one-click background checks, mobile application portals that are completely brandable, social sharing tools and career sites, automated posting, job board management, video interviewing, and hundreds of automatic, real-time reporting options.

Candidates can submit their applications via a mobile-optimized platform that’s available on their chosen device, be it a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. ClearCompany allows HR professionals to spend less time screening submitted applications through knockout questions and predefined multi-staged processes to find the perfect candidate. Assessments from a library of more than 500 assessment tests from leading publishers can be included in the application process.

ClearCompany's applicant tracking system contains pertinent candidate details laid out in an easy-to-digest format, so that recruiting managers spend less time looking for the ideal candidate.

Candidate Sourcing

ClearCompany is equipped with a candidate sourcing tool that grants recruiters access to more than 160 million social talent profiles. This reduces the time spent looking for applicants matching your ideal candidate profile, as well as the average cost per hire. Integration between applicant tracking and candidate sourcing eliminates data redundancies, as information flows directly between the two.

The app’s candidate sourcing functionality enables the recruiting department to create deeper talent pipelines that they can readily reuse for the next hiring cycle. You can search the applicant database by skill, job title, or any keyword you deem appropriate. Candidate profiles can be shared with team members or added to requisitions for follow-up.

ClearCompany's candidate sourcing feature gives companies access to millions of candidate profiles, reducing the time, effort, and money involved in finding the right talents.

Paperless Onboarding

ClearCompany’s paperless onboarding system allows customers to digitize their process with online packets by transforming their current onboarding workflow into a customized digital version. The software also carries a library of numerous onboarding forms that you can use out of the box.

A packet can be sent to a new hire in just a few clicks, and individual approvers can be assigned for each form, enabling different managers or departments to sign off a completed form. Automated reminders can be set up to notify new hires and approvers of forms or tasks requiring their attention. To eliminate double data entry, ClearCompany uses smart forms with pre-filled data from previously entered information. Data sources include the new hire’s employment application, resume, and other relevant forms.

A company's new hires are given a link to an onboarding page, where they see all the forms and tasks they need to complete and submit.

Performance Management

ClearCompany’s performance management feature can accommodate an unlimited number of peer or 360-degree reviews. Automated reminders are sent to employees who haven’t yet completed their reviews, and customizable reporting tools allow managers to track individual and team progress against benchmarks, and visually pinpoint top performers.

You can create as many review forms as you need, and even set up custom scoring tables or free-form response sheets. Goals are tracked and updated in real time, and ClearCompany’s social approach to aligning individual goals with the company’s objectives enables employees to share their goals with colleagues, send and receive peer feedback, recognize achievements in real time, and communicate items of high importance.

Assessing the performance of an employee doesn't take days or weeks with ClearCompany, as all the details needed for an unbiased review are conveniently stored in the platform.

Goal Setting and Tracking

ClearCompany’s goal setting and tracking functionality allows managers and employees to identify and accomplish the goals that help them succeed and impact the company’s bottom line. Users see and understand how each goal is broken down, who is responsible for certain tasks and projects, and who is on track.

This feature offers companies a clear picture into their teams and the individuals comprising them, including their strengths and weaknesses, allowing managers to effectively allocate their human resources.
