Excellent Platform For Quick Hirings And Easy Recruitment

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: It helps me to close many entry-level and mid-level positions. It really has a fantastic dashboard with an impressive UI. We can contact candidates directly through its platform.

Pros:

I like that I can source candidates using keyword search and advanced boolean search. I can narrow down my search based on skills, degree, location, industry, etc. It has a good database of candidates from entry-level to senior level. It also offers job postings. It is pretty much easy to use and works on real-time updates.

Cons:

It has lack highly technical experience candidates and its job posting algorithm needs some improvement to get more candidates. It also needs to offer a comment section so that we can update what we have spoken to candidates about.

Alternatives Considered:

Great system, great ease of use and functionality but lacks candidates to make it worth it

4.0 5 years ago

Comments: It was a great system, and we enjoyed using it, but after working on it for some time, we realized it did not provide a better solution than or other systems and it was too expensive to be worth keeping.

Pros:

It has a great interface, it is easy to learn and use, fast load times, and a lot of different easy action on every page is easy to work on a team, and make sure that everyone is always on the same page.

Cons:

Even though everything works perfectly, tracking and managing the people on the system when it comes to the pool of candidates and the amount of them that come through the postings it becomes an expensive system since it does not give the return for the investment since it's lacking on hits from local and available candidates.

Alternatives Considered:

New "upgraded" system is useless

2.0 4 years ago

Comments: Felt sort of like we were tricked into signing back up to be honest. After another account manager took over out account we had a much better customer service experience, but product quality was just not worth keeping our subscription

Pros:

The only pro after they changed their entire product is that we still had access to the old search dashboard for a little while. I believe that feature has been removed.

Cons:

They have a good idea, but the execution fails completely. In their new system, they attempt to incorporate social sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, GitHub, etc.) into search results when sourcing. But there is no way to ensure this new expanded pool of candidates are even looking for a job. They could have simply changed their employment information on Facebook or accidently clicked on their CareerBuilder app, and it populates them as a new job seeker. So much time wasted on people not looking for new opportunities. Also kept populating resumes that has NOTHING to do with the Boolean string or keyword entered (Boolean strings and keywords that worked just fine on other job boards). I'll stop there, because the ability to find relevant candidates who are open to a discussion about new opportunities are the two most basic needs of every recruiter, and CareerBuilder, in my experience at least, met neither.

Career Builder was critical to building our sales team in a competitive market

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Can't complain. Did exactly what it said it would as far as finding us quality talent. Was easy to use and train others to use. Works great no matter the market you're operating within

Pros:

Ease of use and applicant search were tops in my book. Allowed us to rotate recruiters on a moments notice and also find people that really fit our culture

Cons:

It is a bit pricey, especially for newer businesses just getting started. I was lucky to get a discount thanks to an association I was a part of. Nevertheless, worth the cost of you're serious about growing your business

CareerBuider Works

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I think the CareerBuilder Applicant Tracking tools is great on many levels. When I first started using it, the industry was different, now I find myself using for certain post.

Pros:

I discover CareerBuilder to be simple, solid, and give sufficient data, that doesn't cause you to feel like you have burned through your time, subsequently adding to your as of now stress.

Cons:

Evidently, anybody can see my resume and data however I have no security. Surely checks that the applicant is qualified. Profession Builder doesn't.
