On the day-to-day basis, we use Jobvite as an applicant tracking system to track all of the candidates that we have in process. We use it to push out interviews. We use it to notify hiring managers of candidates that are interviewed. We use it for its evaluation piece to evaluate candidates after their interviews. We use it to connect it to our website to do our advertising, we push advertising out to Jobvite. We manage our third party vendors through that system and allow them to help us track the resumes they submit to us and we input them into the system. It is used to make offers and to run our third party, including background checks and things like that to start that process. We have a pretty extensive use of Jobvite with all the bells and whistles.

I'm a technical recruiter. I'm mostly using Jobvite to track candidates who have applied for jobs or who I have reached out to. But the fundamental use case is for collecting information on candidates who've applied for jobs and checking them, managing them, communicating with a candidate, communicating with people in my company about the job application, and about the collection of candidates who had applied for a particular job. I report on the status of the candidates who were in the process. It's the kind of the standard collection of things that a recruiter would do in regards to an applicant tracking system. Jobvite provides that basic functionality. Other things that we provide would be to distribute information about job postings. The company puts the job opening, the job title, and the job description into Jobvite. Jobvite can disseminate that to job boards like LinkedIn and Indeed, and others. It's the basic functionality of a modern applicant tracking system, and Jobvite essentially does all that.

I use it for posting jobs on our website and applicant tracking. I enter a job opening into the system, and then it posts the job onto our website from there. I also use it for scheduling interviews for candidates and documenting the candidate interview process.

We use the solution for all of our work recruiting. We posted jobs and we helped candidates go through our recruitment journey on the system.

You cannot create types of candidate journeys, it doesn't have that functionality. For example, you might have a journey for a Technical Talent that is different than G&A Talent, and it doesn't allow for that. It also doesn't allow for confidentiality, if you're a candidate and then you get hired, you can see all the feedback of your colleagues. Which typically you don't want to do. You want to keep that confidential for different reasons. It has very inefficient, integration capabilities with the HRS systems. It's almost, non-existent. That's also a big problem. Their reporting is also not great. Although I would say most ATS systems are also not great in the reporting. The fact that you can't create a recruiting journey, the fact that you can't have confidentiality, the fact that it doesn't integrate with an HRS system, is really problematic as a company grows.

Its reporting feature can be improved. Reporting is currently not user friendly, and it is just complicated. If you want specific reports that aren't available within the system, then you have to pay extra. We don't use Jobvite for onboarding or payroll. They have the option, but we don't use them for onboarding or payroll. We strictly use it just for the recruiting cycle. If we did have a more comprehensive package with them, the reporting might not be so bad. One thing that kind of bothers me is the fact that you can have somebody apply to several different requisitions, and the notes don't merge together because it is requisition-focused. In other words, it is not strictly candidate-focused, which is kind of a pain sometimes. You have to go back and forth with the notes if somebody applies, or you could miss some important information.

The ability to manage and track candidates in one place, and also when you are scheduling is a plus.

It has a really nice scheduling feature, which is very valuable for scheduling interviews. It is an automated feature and one of my favorite things about Jobvite. The other thing that I like about Jobvite is customer service. Their customer service is amazing, and they're constantly improving it and making it better. Jobvite also integrates with LinkedIn.
