Recruiterbox Overview

What is Recruiterbox?

Small businesses, HR departments & Startups use Recruiterbox to take the pain out of their hiring because:

1) Because email & spreadsheets are inefficient:

If you use email to receive applications, you know how tedious it is to download and open each attached resume. Nor can you search in attachments. Spreadsheets and folders are also messy beyond a point.

With Recruiterbox, all candidate information is gathered and made searchable at one place.

2) Because it saves time:

Most of the time in hiring is spent in emailing candidates, assigning people to interview them, or simply finding a candidate from a pile.

Recruiterbox helps you minimize the time spent on these administrative tasks. Spend less time "managing" hiring and more time actually hiring by automatically organizing your forwarded attachments on its platform. No more opening resume attachments in email.

3) Because it helps you work as a team:

Hiring involves discussion & sharing candidate evaluations, scheduling interviews and delegating tasks.

Recruiterbox lets you easily assign tasks to team members, schedule interviews, share all reviews and communication around a candidate.

Recruiting is hard. Recruiterbox can make it easier.

How did we ever survive before Recruiterbox!

I was hired on to provide recruiting backup, and when I covered for our recruiter one holiday last fall, I was shocked and horrified at the chaos of trying to manage everything via email. I started shopping around for the right ATS immediately. I tried out probably 8 or so systems, going round in circles with other vendors about walk throughs and limited trials and so forth. Recruiterbox had none of this...which was an amazing thing! No annoying calls from sales people. No limitations on the trial, which was an incredibly smart tactic on their part, because we ended up selecting the "Ferrari" of subscriptions and never looked back. It's like they trust that their product can stand on its own merits, and they don't need a sales team to harass you every few days.

We really wonder sometimes how we could accomplish what we do now without the aid of Recruiterbox. A coworker recently asked me if I was in RB so I could look up a candidate. My response: "I LIVE in Recruiterbox." All day, every day, wouldn't have it any other way.

No refund

We have spent two months trying to get it to work, invested a huge amount of time and money into it and couldn't get it to work for our process. There is a simple software change we need, however, they prioritise software updates on a numbers basis. As no one else needs it, this update is not a priority for them. This great for all the other users, but very bad and expensive for us.

Definitely the RIGHT CHOICE choosing Recruiterbox!

I was hired by Healthy Kids in March and one of my tasks was to research and select an ATS. After researching, I decided Recruiterbox would meet our needs and especially my needs as I was very used to working with Taleo for several years.

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] trained me initially and did a fantastic job. At that time, due to Covid, I was only working a few hours one day per week so week to week was a "review" of what [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] had trained me on prior. He was extremely patient and thorough and I appreciated all the time he spent with me, sometimes going over things a number of times as I would forget from week to week of not using the system.

The Support Team has been OUTSTANDING. Anytime I've sent an email to the support mailbox, I receive a response within minutes (very impressive). I do want to point out extra kudos for [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. She is the best - just SPECTACULAR support. What a pleasure it has been working with her. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has taken time out of her busy day for the last several weeks and had scheduled weekly zoom calls with me so she can answer all my questions in one shot. She is so precise when explaining how to perform a task on Recruiterbox. We shared our screens and she will always show me an example. No question is ever too easy or difficult for her to answer and show me how to do it. I have absolutely loved onboarding and working with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]
, especially due to her great attitude, friendly personality and knowledge of the system. Recruiterbox was definitely the right choice

RB is a great price for what it offers, but could use some improvements.

Recruiterbox is still a great Applicant Tracking System (ATS), especially for how affordable it is. However, I've found I was much happier with the system 1 year ago than I am using it right now and hope they remove some of the "busy-ness" from the interface.

Good tool for applicant tracking but could use some improvements

Good experience overall. There are definitely a few things they can improve but this is leaps and bounds better than systems I have used in the past.

Pros

Hugely, endlessly adaptable to your specific processes. We're a temporary staffing company, and with some creative thinking and detailed questions to the support folks, we have created an exquisite database and invaluable tool.

The technical support team is unlike anything our office has ever experienced from a vendor. We wish every support team could be even half as good as them. Immediately responsive, genuinely want to help solve whatever weird problem you're having. Their follow up if an issue that is not resolved to their satisfaction is astounding. I've received two and three follow up emails, them double and triple checking that everything is working fine now. They are always striving to grow and improve their product (we love being "pioneers"!!).

Best part? Cost wise, even with the "Ferrari" subscription, their prices beat almost every other competitor.

For those needing old-school peace of mind, this package also offers monthly, downloadable data backups. We feel totally safe in their hands.

Love the job board syndication. Such a great added value. Also easy to customize and add the job feed to your own website via a quick piece of code.

Cons

Wish there was an option to quickly insert a signature line when writing an email to a candidate.

One of our teammates requests a way to overlay a markup/highlight resumes in the viewer.

Also wish we could view and/or manage the email subscribers for job posting updates, and give subscribers an option for frequency of job notifications (and maybe by job type they're interested in, like sorted by team?). We're being super picky here! :-)

Pros

It is attractive and relatively easy to use, you can adjust it to fit your hiring process.

Cons

We were given the impression they would create a particular customisation for us, or that it would work for our process. This turned out not to be the case. As a result we paid for an entire year up front, and now can't use the system at all. Their customer service person said: "I'm not indicating fault here. I am simply reiterating our policy that we do not offer refunds in instances such as this. "
He also said: "we are more than willing to work with you to show you how you might maximize the feature at your disposal to help you make advancements in your hiring process. " However, when we implemented their suggestions on our process, we found applications were duplicated (sometime 4 of the same application). This caused all kinds of extra work for us and it was just a very small campaign. Sadly it meant the system was unusable for further campaigns as it would have created far more work than it would have saved.
I'm sure for others it is great value for money, but for us, as a result of this, it has only resulted in costs - the original cost and the cost to us of trying to get it to work.

Recruiterbox is still a great Applicant Tracking System (ATS), especially for how affordable it is. However, I've found I was much happier with the system 1 year ago than I am using it right now and hope they remove some of the "busy-ness" from the interface.

Pros

- Extremely affordable for smaller and mid-sized companies
- Ability to allow multiple users have access to the same application in order to keep track of where they are in our process.
- Constantly implementing updates (sometimes a con as well)
- Pretty intuitive and easy to use for the most part

Cons

- Although they implement many updates, I don't view all of them as improvements. For example they used to have a Dashboard on the home screen that was one of RB's best features. You had a great visual of which stages seemed to have a lot of apps built up and instantly knew where your attention was needed. They took that feature away and although you are still able to filter by stage, it is a pain and adds much less value. Sometimes it seems they make it busier more complex than it needs to be in order to add value. I've used it for 3 years and have been disappointed with their updates in the last year.
- The search function works very poorly and inconsistently. I can search an applicant's exact name at times and "no results found" is what I'll get.
- If the stages you create in each opening aren't typed exactly the same, they won't stack and will act as completely seperate stages. For example, "BGC and DT" vs "BGC & DT"
- The RB support is very prompt in resonding to your chat, however they've asked me for my feedback 3 different times on the same exact matter. They say they will pass it along to their engineering team and I don't hear anything more which makes me think it never goes anywhere. Even a later response saying "it was talked about but here's why it can't happen right now.." would be good enough.

Good experience overall. There are definitely a few things they can improve but this is leaps and bounds better than systems I have used in the past.

Pros

-easy to look at applicants and share them with colleagues
-easy to schedule interviews and see what interviews others have scheduled with the candidate
-nice that everything is in one place
-transparency of reviews and ratings

Cons

-The review process is a bit confusing. There is a quick review which is apparently different than a regular review. If you do one instead of the other you keep getting the email reminders to complete your review. On the bright side when I eventually decided to email customer service about this they got back to me very quickly to help me figure this out
-I wish you could choose to hide other people's reviews and ratings until after you complete your so that colleagues' opinions don't have any effect

Response from Recruiterbox

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback Michelle. Glad you're enjoying Recruiterbox overall! We'll take note of improving the quick vs. regular reviews process. Have you heard about unbiased interviews by chance? It's relatively new and could help solve exactly what you're looking for (hiding other reviews until you've written your own). We'll reach out to see if we can help. And of course, you can always get in touch with us at [email protected]
