Workable

The leading Applicant Tracking System & Recruiting Software

About Workable

Workable’s recruiting software has helped 20,000 companies find, evaluate and hire over one million candidates. Building insights gathered from every hire back into its ATS, companies using Workable move from the requisition to offer stage faster.

Empowering customers—from fast-growth start-ups to global organizations—to hire the best, Workable’s hiring software finds more candidates than anyone else. It supports one-click job board advertising across all the best jobs boards, over 700 SEO-optimized job descriptions, and mobile-friendly career pages. With automated candidate sourcing technology built-in, it finds qualified passive candidates at scale too. Powered by AI and machine learning, Workable searches over 400 million online profiles, scans them to recommend best fit candidates and then targets those candidates on social media using automated, personalized outreach.

Workable’s talent acquisition software brings in-house recruiters and hiring teams together so teams can progress with pace to evaluate candidates as soon as they’ve found them. Trackable communication, real-time calendar sync and a top-rated mobile app streamline the process. While interview kits and scorecards make decision-making fairer and more accurate. Using bulk emails and templates, and by empowering candidates to schedule their own interviews at a time that suits, it’s easy to keep candidates informed and engaged. Once the perfect candidate’s been found, automated offer letters make it easy to move fast and make it official. And, after they’re hired, Workable’s applicant tracking system provides recruiting reports to review process and plan future strategy.

    It's been great, the system is good, has a few things it could improve on but a good system.

    Pros

    This system has really been great for us. It is easy to create jobs, post, and make notes throughout the process.

    Cons

    Needs a better way for merging candidates from indeed, they get different email addresses so really causes a problem in our system. Need to be able to attach several reqs to one and clear they are together. Indeed integration is wonky, have issues with our jobs being seen but get far better results with a direct link. Ease of seeing things, if notes are so long hard to get to what is needed.

    IT was great from search to implementation to using it, the experience was very positive and the impact it made to our recruitment activities was apparent day one

    Pros

    We love having everything related to the candidate in one place. And being able to have the entire hiring team able to collaborate in one space is excellent

    Cons

    We can't sort and file the talent pool for future use except if it is into positions. Also, information from archived positions is not available unless you unarchive a position which can be a bit inconvenient

    Solid tool if you have a fairly simple process; still allows for customization, which is great.
    Hilariously/infuriatingly rude sales process. No desire to fix issues, just to trap you in contracts.

    Pros

    Workable has a simple, clean layout that was easy to customize and train my team on. It did exactly what we needed it to do and allows for a good deal of customization for our somewhat-unique hiring process.

    Cons

    The sales team are vultures. We planned to renew our contract after one year, and confirmed so via *email*. After some discussion, we realized we were probably overpaying; we included People Search in our initial contract (which is terrible and doesn't work reliably at all). We asked our sales rep, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], if we could remove that from our invoice, and were told we already had "a grandfathered deal" and should be glad we weren't paying more. The tone was downright rude.

    Because we don't need anything too complicated, we decided to move to another ATS with a slightly lower cost. When Workable sent us the invoice to renew, we notified them that we would not be doing so- 2 weeks before contract expiration. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] *so rudely* replied that my verbal acknowledgement a month before was binding, and that we were stuck with another year. Obviously, we're fighting that, but it's really shocking that Workable is more interested in roping customers into contracts than understanding why they want to leave in the first place.

    Response from Workable Software

    We're so sorry that you did not have a good experience with the Workable product and our Sales Team. Customer success is very important to us. As your Account Manager is in contact with you currently, we will also make sure to further understand everything in this review during our conversation.

    What is really nice about Workable is that everyone on the team can see each other's comments and updates in real time. The calendaring feature that allows us to invite the candidate and have it show up on our outlook calendar is fabulous and makes our lives so much easier. Workable also sends emails with upcoming trainings which we find helpful.

    Pros

    What I like most about Workable is that it is intuitive and easy to use. We do very little training when we add employees to use the system. I also like how the system saves what I've been working on and can return to my notes without having to start over from the beginning.

    Cons

    Right now, there is nothing that I would complain about or change with Workable.

    Reasons for Choosing Workable

    Our contract was up with our former company and no one on our team was around when we first started the contract so we decided it would be a good time to investigate all options and see what was out there. After seeing what other companies had to offer, we went back to our former company to see if they could do some training with us to see if there were features we weren't using that would enhance our experience. They were very unhelpful with this. Another reason we made the decision to change is because of cost.

    Reasons for Switching to Workable

    We looked at several options but had it narrowed down to 2. The other option was much more expensive and we couldn't justify requesting the expense.

    Response from Workable Software

    Thanks for your feedback! We're glad getting people to adopt the system has been easy, and when your team needs additional training that we meet your needs.

    I’m not sure we get visibility on job boards. We posted a position last Aug using Greenhouse and received 121 applicants in 2 weeks. This year, we posted same job through Workable and got 27 in two weeks. I eventually paid to promote on LinkedIn.

    Pros

    I can’t believe the scorecard feature wasn’t in the standardized ratings! This is a great feature even though my team doesn’t utilize it enough.

    Cons

    Better scorecard- I wish a candidate could have one cumulative scorecard per user where hiring team could score them. Instead, there’s a scorecard for each step of the funnel for each user. If I forget to ask questions in the screen, I can’t just make them empty for the next round, I have to do a whole new repetitive card.

    You also have to click around a bit to find this and access it.
