"Improvements all the time but still not really listening to their customers"

What do you like best?

Lots of configuration options and the ability to customize including creating custom fields.

Report dashboards are nice. I can write reports then share them with a login group.

Support is pretty responsive, usually get a non-automated reply in 24 hours and support is very knowledgeable.

What do you dislike?

Custom reports aren't really intuitive and in some cases can't get all the info I want in one report as the fields don't cross from one module to the other (recruiting and onboarding for example). Reports are also restricted to 20 fields total. One example, trying to find offer extended but not accepted or rejected across all our custom offers (no common field)

Onboarding tasks can't be reassigned to a different HR Coordinator which can be challenging when someone leaves.

Test environment is very limited - can't test candidate or onboarding features as the test system only is the "platform" and does not include the portal.

HUGE price hike after our 3 year contract was up (76%!) even though we had a percent max at renewal listed in the contract, they did not honor it.

Moving from a person profile to a recruiter workflow profile can be confusing for new users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although the product is improving, the huge 77% price hike made us really question our choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recruiters like it for job postings but managing tasks aren't quite where we need them. Posting a job is fairly easy as is managing aprpovals.

"Recruiting Information at your fingertips"

What do you like best?

When I joined the company I am with currently, there was a proprietary ATS, which means it was not a real ATS, so I started the search to bring in an ATS solution for our recruiting needs. We looked at 6 different products and decided on ICIMS for a few reasons, the main reason being the UI (user interface) was easy to navigate. All the information we needed was right there and we can customize our screen to see what we want, where we want it. The reporting is great too, as it provides all the information you need to provide stats back to management. Lastly, their help desk is really helpful. Very responsive and quick to answer questions. Really happy with our decision!

What do you dislike?

More of a wish than a dislike, I wish that the background check vendor we work with was integrated with ICIMS, currently it is not, but not a deal killer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to look at other software products to make sure this does meet your needs. It is always interesting to see how different ATS systems are set up to do basically the same thing!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems we are trying to solve is getting resources in quick enough. By having ICIMS we are able to provide data to the business on how many resumes we are getting, where are they coming from, and if there is a breakdown in the process internally we can show that through the reporting.

What Applicant Tracking System (ATS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Customizable and Easy To Use"

What do you like best?

The system has a great customer support line/ticketing system. Almost all of my questions or system updates can be answered over the phone. If not, they are prompt in putting in a ticket for their technical team and I receive a quick response back. The platform itself is also easy to learn and utilize, along with having opportunities to customize the system to work best for your team.

What do you dislike?

There are some system issues that hold the platform back. For instance, most emails that are sent from icims by a recruiter/hr seem to go into the spam/junk folders for candidates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The system allows for easy access into the life cycle of the candidate, from applying to a position, interviewing, accepting, completing paperwork, and starting. The system also helps us to record and track key metrics that we can bring back to our business partners.

"Not the Worst Experience, but Service is Frustrating"

What do you like best?

There is A LOT of customization that, in theory, can be done in the Dashboard.

What do you dislike?

Our Integration person has been a bit of a nightmare. He's not an effective communicator (a lot of loud sighs, "we'll get to that" and repeat interruptions to change course when he doesn't know an answer to something) and in reference to the customization, has done everything except flat out refuse to make them. It's been really frustrating because it's what we were sold on and what we genuinely need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're not getting what you need during integration, speak up early and often. We wish we'd asked for a new integration manager early on, but we were too far into the process when we realized we'd have to do more heavy lifting than we had been told to expect.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again, in theory, we're solving a lot of issues that we've had with tracking properly, but it's proving to be a bit of smoke and mirrors on the sales person's part. The mobile optimization for both candidate and recruiter is helpful, as well as 3rd party software integration that save us time overall.

"Great software for all your recruiting/hiring process"

What do you like best?

iCIMS saves us a lot of time with its recruiting procedures. Stuff that was done using paper sheets, online forms and slow process, can now be done in one, single software. It is also very integrated with excel, which allows the user to pull reports directly from it.

What do you dislike?

It can be tough with users that are non-HR, and not familiar with how to properly use the software. It also lacks some functionalities, but nothing that affects the experience very much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have increased our productivity and hire ratio exponentially. The time saved with iCIMS is being used in different projects, which helps the team a lot. Also, out staff finds it to be quicker than other software.

"iCIMS is great."

What do you like best?

Creating job postings is a breeze. The foldering and bucketing systems in the job requisition makes it easy for recruiters to track their candidates status. The dashboards are customizable with different graphs or information about positions. Their support team is great, there is tons of information on their website and their support line is helpful as well.

What do you dislike?

The user interface itself is very bland. It could be spruced up a little bit to be more enjoyable to look at.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize iCIMS support whenever you need it. They provide a very inclusive online database for pretty much anything you would need. If you can't find it, someone is always willing to help!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The candidate experience has improved vastly. Also, our hiring managers have found it much easier to submit their job openings to the recruiting team.

"Helps keep things together and trackable"

What do you like best?

I can find and track everything I need to for all the hiring I do here without consulting my HR contact for much. It's also part of my G Suite apps, so it's convenient to find and login.

What do you dislike?

The dashboard is quite busy, so navigating to exactly what I'm looking for can be a chore (but this might have more to do with how our org has laid it out by default than the software itself). I'd also like more of the interview scheduling, as well as linking to where a req is publicly posted to be readily available as part of a res entry in the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a hiring manager, I need to be able to create and update reqs easily, then track candidates and approvals, which this allows me to do. I no longer t need to operate in email with (various) HR contacts in order to keep it all straight.

"Excellent ATS Toolset"

What do you like best?

I like the product design of the three major components and how they support the candidate pipeline.

Social Connect

Recruit

Onboard

What do you dislike?

Integration performance or third party services (non-iCIMS)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate your current tools and processes and make the appropriate design changes based on your outcomes and needs. Then select the tool that will get you there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a small high performance Talent Acquisition Team and we are highly productive in a very fast paced environment. We save time and are very efficient throughout the candidate development lifecycle. We have gone almost paperless with onboarding and have had great success.

"Simply Amazing!"

What do you like best?

What I like best about iCIMS is how easy the platform is to navigate for both our HR team and for our hiring managers throughout the organization. Additionally, they are always pushing through new updates (free) that help make the system better and their customer support team is outstanding.

What do you dislike?

If I have to say what I don't like about iCIMS, it would be that they only focus on being an applicant tracking system. Our organization enjoys them so much that we wish they would release other platforms as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the best vendors to work with - they are honest, supportive, fair, and very friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For my organization, we were able to move from a paper and pencil application to having everything online including our entire on-boarding process.The ROI for us was almost immediate with all of the time we were saving.

"Great for Managing Candidates"

What do you like best?

From Hiring Manager perspective: The ease of looking at resumes and downloading one document that has all resumes combined. I also like the professional look at feel of the job posting and ease of sharing the job posting. I love the feature that emails all the applicants when a person has been hired and the job is filled.

From Applicant perspective: I like that you create an account and can apply for different jobs within the company, but your basic information is saved. I like the ease of uploading cover letter and resume.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to find where the additional documents are after the resume. I often have trouble finding cover letters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sorting and managing the hiring process with many candidates. Notifying candidates that the position is filled is a huge time saver.

"Amazing ATS with Great Reporting Features"

What do you like best?

I like that is so easy to find a candidate or a requisition in the system. I can edit information easily and view reports and notes from hiring managers that allow me to ensure compliance.

What do you dislike?

It may be very user-friendly, however, the look of it is not very aesthetically pleasing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I urge you to look into the product. There might be other platforms out there that will fit your needs if you are a smaller company. However, if you have a larger corporation or business, definitely consider iCIMS for your hiring needs. It will aid you to create a great experience for users, hiring managers, and most importantly the applicants.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to track our candidates easily and note why they were hired or regretted in case of audits, etc.

"Organized, helpful and easy to use tool that provides what Recruiters need to do their job well."

What do you like best?

Overall the dashboard is the right tool within the product; the customization that can be done based on role is perfect. The overall system is very user friendly and the candidate and job views show the right information in a nice 3 panel view. Additionally the ability to change the view for your companies customization is flexible to use, so this is really a nice ability most systems don't have.

What do you dislike?

I honestly can't say there is anything I dislike about iCIMS at this point. Everything has been working great and great customer service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The dashboard is a great tool and it was something I highly value. The scaleability and flexible customization for your needs as a recruiter and a company are perfect and easy to implement. Candidate management within iCIMS Recruit is easy to use with great automation functions that work with your process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to increase our efficiency filling positions that include time to fill, increased exposure, and create a positive recruiting experience with our candidates. Recruit has been able to help us with a streamlined process for our hiring mangers to follow. We can't wait for us to roll out their manger view for more efficient for them. We have not rolled out out as we have multiple system roll outs in the last year we wan to make sure they can adapt to this.

"A great ATS - especially for Onboarding"

What do you like best?

I like the seamless transition from Recruit to Onboard. The software is user friendly and is very interactive. So many things can be accomplished within the system. There is no need for manual forms to be sent through email. This means that almost every aspect of the recruitment process can be included in metric reports.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the lack of control a system admin has. It seems as though so many small tasks have to be completed by support. Also, we have to use iForms for offer letters, which can be very expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Onboard is a must. We have employees in different states and countries - the Onboard product simplifies the management of all the legal requirements for different locations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There have been many benefits to using iCIMS Recruit. The application process is simple for our candidates, and the system is easy to navigate for our recruiters. I like that for a candidate, the portal is the same for application and onboarding purposes. We no longer need any paper forms when bringing in new talent.

"An easy ATS solution just right for our Small Biz needs"

What do you like best?

We have just begun using the ICIMS and so far so good. The candidate interface is seamless and the admin controls are intuitive. The training I received and demo seemed just about right and although I have needed some follow-up with a rep, they are pretty accessible. Have not used support as of yet and they did negotiate a bit on price which was very helpful as we are still in start-up mode. Once we scale up, Im hoping the system will keep up.

What do you dislike?

So far have not had any major issues. Maybe the only 'inconvenience' is the importing of candidates from our old system. There is an email address where you attach resumes to, and candidates are automatically imported and created in the iCIMS platform (this is a nice feature of course) but it is limited to 10 attachments per email. We did not have thousands of resumes - but if we did...that would be a problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating sourcing, recruiting and on-boarding while creating a seamless end-user experience. Integrating into our current benefits and payroll system.

"Flexible Platform, Streamlining Our Hiring & Increasing Effeciences"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility of iCIMs to accommodate a variety of complex hiring processes. As we've added, changed and grown our processes, iCIMs has been able to grow right alongside us. They are constantly evolving and advancing their products - which is very refreshing.

What do you dislike?

There are a variety of configurations that an ICIMs Support Technician must make on your request. There are sometimes I wish we had more control - but a call or email ticket and I'm reminded they have some of the best support I've experienced. Instead of wanting more control, it's nice to have a team of experts waiting to help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should have someone on your team who is well versed in technology. We formed a partnership with HR and Technology inside our organization. This was a win. The administration is technical and will require quite a bit of technical understanding. This shouldn't scare you. The training, support and implementation process is very user-friendly. Just a note that this is a technical product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

iCIMs will dramatically reduce our current paper-driven hiring process. In addition, our Hiring Managers will have a real-time view on where a candidate is in the process. We are saving countless emails and phone calls and hours of back-and-forth for virtually everyone involved in the hiring process.

"User-friendly ATS with awesome customizable capabilities"

What do you like best?

I love the sleek and minimalist design, the fact that you can search anything and return a result easily, and the interface is very user-friendly. You can also customize your recruitment process to be what fits your company's needs, which is very helpful. My company does not use everything iCIMS has to offer, but it would be great in the future to apply iCIMS's capabilities to our recruitment processes. They have a ton of iCIMS Webinars to learn how to best utilize their products and services.

What do you dislike?

This is sort of a double-edged sword. They update quite frequently. While I easily adjust, some people in the office dislike the changes that are made at times. However, improvements and changes are necessary for growth. The only other dislike is the scheduling system. It is the only component to the ATS that is not as user-friendly as it should be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a product that has great customer support, is user-friendly and is customizable to your needs, this would be a great choice for you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to be an all-paper recruitment process. iCIMS has completely streamlined the recruitment process, allowing us to have time-savings in regards to less paper. Everything is all in one place, which is a huge benefit. In addition, reports can be ran on almost any aspect/detail in iCIMS, which makes it great for the analysis of the data and determining if there are improvements to be made in certain areas of recruitment (i.e., advertisement).

Since we are fairly new to this whole transition, I think the benefits are huge and it makes our lives as recruiters much easier and less easy to have human-error.

"iCIMS has greatly improved my productivity and ability to communicate with hiring mangers!"

What do you like best?

The ability to share candidates with hiring managers, communicate with candidates, get approval for offers and keep all the details electronically in one place.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything. I liked the recruit product so much less than a year later I got approval to add the onboarding product. It has been wonderful!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would defiantly switch again. Take a look it is worth the money and the time to get your process just the way you want it!! We are getting better candidates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to take the process from emailing candidates back and forth to managers to forwarding them directly to hiring managers. Then when they are ready to make and offer I go directly through the system for the offer approval process, the offer, background & drug testing, moving directly to onboarding. It keeps everything all in one place. It is very organized and efficient! This doesn't even mention approval of new jobs, posting, getting them on our internal & external job boards. We also post them to regular job boards and niche job sites through iCIMS. It has been such a wonderful tool!!

"Recruitment automation made simple"

What do you like best?

The iCIMS interface is my favourite thing about the tool! and the People at iCIMS come a close second.

What do you dislike?

It can be frustrating at times to work through the helpdesk - not because of the Helpdesk Agents but because there can be a delay in response times due to my location in the Middle East.

I also find the configuration portal a little confusing but it's one of those things that the more you work with it the easier it becomes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure that you have a team who is technically savy and are curious enough to explore the tool themselves as you don't get much spoon feeding from iCIMS. Good idea to have an iCIMS trainer come out and train up the team before the system goes live as no amount of online training can truly prepare you - a day spent working through lots of examples of how the system will work in your environment gives your team an added advantage of having a successful launch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Effective tracking stands out, information at my fingertips is another (I oversee recruitment operations so it's awesome to be able to keep track of my Team's performance and productivity); great candidates getting access to our career page and this is impacting our recruitment costs positively.

"Customer Service Has Been Great, some functionality hiccups"

What do you like best?

Coming from never having an ATS its been pretty great in terms of being able to customize most of the processes and work flow to match what I was used to. I'm still very new so haven't dove into the reporting tools yet. I really like being able to easily email candidates and the templates are all stored.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot more tactical actions and clicking around than I would prefer. To get from a persons profile to their candidate profile is time consuming. We've yet to fix problems with Social Distribution so I haven't been able to release it to the org yet.

Its a very robust system and a little hard to remember where to go to make changes.

If a manager asks a question in the offer approval process and declines approval, the data is lost after and you have to restart the approval process all over again. I still can't understand why the offer can't track or house the questions/legacy information within notes somewhere.

Would be great to have other documents easily visible as an image like the resume. Managers have complained they have to download any additional documents to view them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tractability, ROI, time management. Candidate engagement is key. Would love to learn more about recruiting marketing campaigns to keep candidates engaged, just haven't had the time yet.

"Still learning the ropes, all good so far!"

What do you like best?

I am still learning how to navigate the system. My experience so far has been good, it is organized in a fashion that is easy for me to learn and utilize.

What do you dislike?

Most of the issues I have run into have been addressed by our support team. The only problem I do see is when I get an email notification of someone applying to a position, it does not tell me what the location is they applied to. I am pretty sure it is how we have posted the job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a neatly organized system and easily utilized by all members of our HR and Recruiting for access to our candidates as they go through the hiring process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love how I can house important documents in one location for our credentialing team to have access to and a candidate can edit the form we send to them

"Meet Expectations, Continues to Improve. "

What do you like best?

Constant improvements to the system being made. Easy to interface with other systems. Extensive help desk, forums, community for everyone to participate in. Never feel unsupported. User interfaces, searches, and other aspects currently being updated and re-looked at which is making it easier for users to learn the system and how to use.

What do you dislike?

Some features can be difficult for all users to learn to use at first. Some features are missing aspects you would expect to find in similar products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used for tracking on data that we are audited for and for records retention. Able to pull metrics for recruiting performance and business performance. Streamlined many manual processes through the platform to ether make automated or semi-automated, creating more time to spend on important tasks. Creating a more thorough integration with internal HR. Helped close the gap on time-to-fill to create a more seamless and automated system.

"Easy to use platform"

What do you like best?

ICims is a really easy recruitment platform to work with. You can create various job postings and they all go to a central "box" for each job and you can then sort through them even more after that. It's all easy to teach and learn even to co-workers outside of HR. You do need to stay on top of their updates to make sure you're getting all the newest features.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to just delete applications out. You can only sort them into a reject/turn down bucket but eventually those buckets get full. They have old rejected applications from years ago. I just want to delete them out permanently.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly meeting recruitment goals. ICims keeps it all nicely sorted and notifies us of certain new apps. It's also helping us see what postings are getting the highest applications.

What do you like best?

The system is incredibly intuitive and easy to use and configure. I love being able to schedule and do offers directly from the ATS and have it integrated with our company calendar.

What do you dislike?

I'm a recruiter; too many clicks for certain things but that's the case with any ATS!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take full advantage of your implementation person. Matt Girard was amazing and we did our implementation in record time!

"Easy to Implement With The Right Resources, Intuitive to Use as a Recruiter"

What do you like best?

This is my 2nd implementation with iCIMS, and I have used the Recruit and Onboarding portals, HRIS integration, bi-directional data feeds to a background vendor, and Agency and Hiring Manager portals. I have also worked on the back end of other HR systems, such as Taleo, PeopleSoft, ADP and SuccessFactors. Comparatively, getting iCIMS up and running and working on the back end is MUCH easier than any of these other systems. Along with that, the iCIMS support and project resources are phenomenal, highly responsive and will go above and beyond to make the system work for your process.

From a systems admin, or recruiter standpoint, the iCIMS online training is incredible and it provides an excellent foundation of the system. With a little bit of internal training and explanation on the company's specific setup, and the intuitiveness of the system itself, people get up to speed very quickly.

What do you dislike?

This is not as much of a dislike for iCIMS, as it is a recommendation to be ready to assign the right resources internally. iCIMS quotes project time expectations, not taking into account who the company has assigned to the project or their experience level, which places unrealistic expectations on the project manager and implementation timeline. Also, iCIMS sells the system as "super easy" to configure, which it is, but without clearly defining the internal resources needed, signoff, testing and adjustment requirements, people who are not knowledgeable about systems implementations start asking "can't we just turn it on"? LOL, no.

One thing iCIMS could do is to outline a real number of hours and duration required of tasks and testing, and provide best practices and recommendations up from for what types of internal company resources are recommended for implementations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have experienced, dedicated, resources to get the system up and running, even if it means pulling them off everything else for a few weeks. That, or hire a contractor with this type of experience. Also, ensure your HRIS system data is streamlined to only what is necessary to create a new hire record, and that your data and fields in the HRIS system is "clean".

Here's the difference in having the right resources and HRIS systems alignment.

At the first company, our HR team were specialists, dedicated to an area of expertise, and we had a very strong and responsive IT team. At the time, the iCIMS implementation was my main focus, and I was assigned an IT and HRIS resource, both with prior implementation experience. We also had several recruiters involved in testing and a dedicated, full-time, iCIMS Administrator. Due to this level of knowledge and support, we had all implementation work completed in less time than the iCIMS estimates.

With regards to the HRIS integration specifically, we had ADP, and a very knowledgeable, prior IT Director, as our HRIS Director, who had taken the time to clean-up our ADP data, prior to the integration, so it made the mapping and testing process seamless.

At the second company, we operate more as a decentralized "generalist" model, and this is a very small part of my daily job. I get pulled away from the project frequently for other priorities. Also, none of our HR resources are familiar with iCIMS, or systems implementations and back-end configurations in general. My project resources have been reassigned several times as well, or left in the middle of a project. Currently, I have two part-time HR resources, with non-overlapping schedules, who are also limited on the amount of hours they can contribute and have many other priorities as well. They are both smart, quick, learners, and are very helpful and supportive, but things move very slow since we cannot get connected or have limited testing time and too many days between meetings. We also have no one from IT aligned.

With regards to the HRIS integration specifically, our ADP system is set-up with multiple company codes, due to acquisitions which have not been fully integrated and have separate time and attendance systems and benefits plans, along with a lot of "required" fields, which means we have had to add a ton of fields to iCIMS, and the recruiters will have to manually assign unique position numbers in iCIMS to ensure the feed is mapped correctly. We will streamline the new hire keying process some with the HRIS integration, but certainly not as much as we could have if we had integrated acquisitions into our systems and benefits from day one, and had not assigned them to multiple company codes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At both companies, we implemented iCIMS to convert from entirely manually, cumbersome steps in the recruiting, hiring and onboarding process. The intent was to make our HR resources more strategic and efficient in their daily work, and to streamline the time it takes to recruit, hire and onboard a new hire. Moving to this system certainly accomplishes all of those benefits.

"iCIMS for Recuiting"

What do you like best?

iCIMS was one of the most innovative software's used inside my organization. The HR department housed the recruiting department, which used iCIMS for all stages of the recruiting process. I like that the system allowed users from the recruiter to the President to sign and continue the recruiting process all in one system .

What do you dislike?

I disliked the lack of reports the system could generate for users. I would like to see updated data analytic functions for the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overcoming technological barriers faced when using multiple HR software. We just a competitor for HR functions however using recruiting functions in the competitors product produced errors consistently, causing delays in the recruiting process.

"High Quality Service"

What do you like best?

You get what you pay for with iCIMS. We knew that it wasn't a system that we would outgrow and with their reputation of a top quality Help Desk, it was a no brainier for a partnership. There has never been a time that I have felt like iCIMS support didn't have my back, and they offer so much information to report from.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit overwhelming when starting from scratch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend the system. But start small when implementing. It's capable of so much, but easier to add then to take away.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving our issue of Onboarding company wide. We can't wait to get through implementation for that part of the platform. iCIMS solved our recruiting issues by keeping all our applications and candidates in a centralized location.

"Good, simple interface with options for customization. "

What do you like best?

Integrates well with our platform. Training on how to use is simple most of the functions are straightforward and easy to grasp quickly just by scanning the page.

What do you dislike?

Some options only work on mass selection and some that should work on mass selection don't. I hate to have to individually go though and do certain dispositions that I should be able to do enmasse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before we used iCIMS changing things like our job descriptions or titles would have to be changed individually for each job title at each location. Not a huge problem if you're dealing with one store but become a bigger problem as you expand to have more and more locations.

"Good system"

What do you like best?

Powerful system! We use the social distribution tool, the career page, and applicant tracking. ALl systems work great.

What do you dislike?

Though they work great, it takes many "clicks" through each system to get anything accomplished. The systems have a steep learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great system. Like any applicant tracking system, if you implement it correctly and use it consistently, you'll make your life easier. If you're lax about keeping your documentation accurate/up-to-date, it's easy to snowball and make information management harder.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We love the social distribution tool - It lets staff auto-post via their social media networks whenever we have new roles open. The other systems do what they need to - but this is the tool that allows other teams in our company to realize how great iCims is.

"Best ATS in the Game"

What do you like best?

I love the customization of iCIMS. They keep on top of best practices and are continually developing new ways to integrate newer technologies. I've recently attended a collaborative workshop in Philadelphia that iCIMS hosted for current and prospective users. They don't just stop with an ATS; they go above and beyond to grow their system is ways that users need and continue to educate their users on ways to get the most out of the system.

What do you dislike?

Generating custom reports can be very time consuming and difficult. The freedom to customize everything can lead to a lot of frustrations if you're having trouble locating the filters or functions you need. Once you are able to figure it out though, you can run a report and filter just about anything you can think of.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. You will not be sorry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sourcing and tracking a candidate's application and multi-step interview process. Online paperwork for new hires through the Onboarding feature. Length of employment with our company. Length of time to fill a req. Improving quality of candidates that we're interviewing.

"Best in Class Recruiting Software"

What do you like best?

It has significantly increased our candidate pool because this system will still capture candidate information even if they abandon the process before they hit submit. Many other ATS do no have that capability.

What do you dislike?

iCIMS does need to have reports that arr a combination or job profiles and person profiles. For example, I can run a report on time to fill for the company, for locations, for job titles, for job grades, etc. However, I cannot run a report on a hiring manager's average time to fill. A metric like this could be really helpful for workforce planning with new and future requisitions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have all of the potential recruiters in on the implementation process, instead of just one leader.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have lowered our Time to Fill across the company from 81 Days to currently 57 Days. This has been a huge accomplishment, and can really speak to the value of having a very clear communication strategy that iCIMS can help with.

"Very Robust Applicant Tracking System"

What do you like best?

This software is very configurable and can be unique to our system and process.

What do you dislike?

There is a huge learning curve with the program, and it's difficult to train our team members.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make certain that you have the time to devote to implementation. It takes many hours of work on the part of you, the customer, and it will be weeks or months before the platform is ready to go live.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the past, we did most of our processes manually. With iCIMS Recruit, many things now happen automatically. This saves us a huge amount of time. Additionally, our clients are happy with the program.

"Big fan of iCIMS and their Connect application"

What do you like best?

The Connect applications that has Talent Pools and Email Campaign functionality. Most ATS do not allow you act like a CRM but iCIMS allows for this. The secret to building a large database is to being able to find your data. The tagging tool inside of iCIMS allows users to do this and there is the ability to bulk edit data in mass also that is crucial to database management.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to report on more data. I would like the portal functionality to be a little bit more customizable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to do outbound recruiting and manage long-term relationships with candidates, iCIMS is for you.

"Great tool to assist in the busy world of HR!"

What do you like best?

The streamlining of our onboarding processes. The time cut from having to have new employees fill out their new paper work their first day to doing everything online before their start date has helped tremendously! The reporting feature is also a great way for us to track metrics that we weren't able to before.

What do you dislike?

There are so many features that is hard to learn them all!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is definitely a tool that is worth every penny. However, it is imperative you attend all the meetings and trainings prior as when you go live, there are so many things you need to know! The recorded trainings are very helpful if you are unsure on how to do something and support is always available!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are putting multiple processes into one system so it is easier to keep track, especially when we are hiring so many new people at this time. We are able to complete almost aspect of the recruiting and onboarding process through the system so it cuts out all of the separate excel sheets and check lists that I had to use before!

"Super easy to use "

What do you like best?

"ICIMS Recruit"

What do you like best?

Good way to keep your applicant processing organized and give line of sight to others. Ease of managing job postings.

What do you dislike?

Implementation took a while, long process. Team needed a great deal of training to be able to use to its potential. Not as much customization as I would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Will give great line of sight to recruiting process, gives a place for all information needed. Great tool to use in reporting to other departments. Make sure users are well trained, will make implementation much easier and you will increase your ROI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making tracking applicants and onboarding much quicker. Easier reporting for recruiters to report on status of pipeline. We had a large talent pool to manage and track iCIMS made that much easier and with better reporting functionality.

"iCIMS"

What do you like best?

iCIMS is a great tool that I have used to efficiently get job requisitions filled out and approved within my department. I like the fact iCIMS stores templates for job descriptions and is interconnected with all resources within the department from hiring managers to interviewers

What do you dislike?

The iCIMS interface is the weakest part of the software. I dislike the feel of the software and sometimes it can be difficult to navigate, change and/or edit existing requisition that are opened. This is not a huge thing but the only part I dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefit has been the efficiency in getting requisitions approved and reviewed throughout the organisation. The great advantage is that the hiring manager can set up all of the requirements for the position from interviewers, salary requirements and position skills.

"Longtime user and Administrator"

What do you like best?

I've used iCIMS for the last nine years and it is the most comprehensive tool I've worked with. The ability to customize workflows, fields and reports makes it very handy in getting what you want out of tracking. In addition, due to it being a cloud based platform it is easy to access the system from anywhere without having to VPN in to an internal network. Adding and removing users is very easy from an administrative standpoint. The jobs library is a nice feature which lets us keep our descriptions up to date.

What do you dislike?

Some features of the system are not customizable like pop-up windows. In addition, customers do not have the ability to remove fields that were created in error or are no longer used, we can only hide them. The system is very powerful so it can overwhelm inexperienced users with appearing to be too complex. Because of the complexity of the system, companies need to have you need to have a competition administrator to manage and make updates. We tried to integrate Outlook in to iCIMS but they require us to white list a huge chunk of IP addresses which our security team was not comfortable with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Allow some additional customization flexibility

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recruiter tracking, source tracking and workflow management. We are able to monitor where our marketing spend is paying off based on the amount of candidates coming through from different sources and how many are hired. In 2015 we hired 681 people with a team of less than 10 Recruiters. There is no way we could do this without a good workflow management tool.

"Super In-house Admin capabilities; fairly intuitive user-interface."

What do you like best?

The iCims platform allows you to configure your candidate experience and internal process in real time. No waiting; no change order fees. If you're used to other providers where configuration changes mean submitting a ticket, scope of work meetings, pricing and then execution time, this alone will make your experience.

When you do need to reach out to iCims they are the most responsive customer service providers I have ever interacted with - not a statement to make lightly. Perfect? No. Close to it though: their commitment to listening to customers and incorporating feedback very quickly is simply superior.

What do you dislike?

I see occasional iCims configuration changes which don't fit the way I use iCims and which are not configurable. I hope they will continue to believe that part of their tremendous appeal is the ability to customize their platform and user experience so much and so easily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your due diligence and speak to iCims' customers with similar structure and anticipated use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ModSpace has been able to streamline and adjust our recruiting process achieving our time to fill targets for the last 3 years. iCims' reporting functionality has enabled us to continually tweak and focus our advertising dollars resulting in reduced and more effective recruitment budget.

"Screening applicants "

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate and attractive data visualizations. Makes screening effortless. Easy to displace applicants in appropriate folder. First applicant tracking system I have used and it was easy to get used to. Makes it convenient to screen a bulk of candidates. Good for high volume recruiting.

What do you dislike?

Not dislike anything. I dislike that our company has not implemented this applicant tracking system earlier. Even though getting used to the program is pretty simple, at first it can seem overwhelming. The front page could be simplified and easier to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try! It's easy for not only the recruiter, but also the candidates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company used to use paper documents for screening and hiring applicants. Using ICIMS Recruit has made the hiring process FASTER and EASIER, since all the documents are virtually stored. Benefits: Faster hiring process, less paperwork (environmentally conscious), and more efficiency

Easy for new recruiters to start using, does not require much training.

"Recruiting made Easy"

What do you like best?

My favorite part of this system is the ease of finding applicants and sorting them into desired categories.

What do you dislike?

It gets harder to navigate through candidates when you have a large amount of applicants for one position (300+).

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool when you know what you are doing, if you company is planning on implementing read the manual provided and ask lots of questions to your contact.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This recruiting system has helped the company steer away from all forms of paper application and move ahead in the digital age of applying for jobs.

"An ATS we would recommend to all"

What do you like best?

The platform allows for customization to fit your company's needs. Easy to filter data, pull reports into an excel sheet and track hires. Req approvals, sharing candidates with hiring managers and dispositioning is a breeze. Customer support is fantastic, whether you call their helpdesk or your account manager, everyone is very knowledgeable and friendly.

What do you dislike?

The platform can be difficult to navigate through at first but once you get the hang of it it's a great ATS. We do notice there are bugs when the system goes through updates (which is usually once or twice a year), but they are fixed within a few days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, this is an awesome ATS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are some limitations to what you can do, e.g. how reports are pulled, but we've managed to find some workarounds. Having an ATS (and one that works well) is so crucial to recruiting. It keeps everyone organized and tracks everything so you have a paper trail to back you up.

"Solid ATS if you have the right admin resource"

What do you like best?

iCIMS is a solid ATS with a ton of features for both connecting with candidates, recruitment workflow and pipeline management, and onboarding. It is extremely customizable allowing you to create different access for different users, custom fields, custom forms, custom integration with other 3rd parties (e.g. HRIS, background screen providers, employment screening assessments). However, the system can be somewhat complex and there are some limitations based on the way it is configured on the backend. There is solid reporting and metrics that can be pulled as well.

What do you dislike?

As mentioned, there is a level of complexity for the platform and training that is needed to fully understand the tool and all its capabilities. It can be cumbersome for some hiring managers that aren’t tech savvy. However, they have an awesome help desk line that can provide all the guidance you need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've used several different products (jobvite, taleo, maxhire, ADP). Of all the ones I've been exposed to, iCIMS is one of the top. It also allows access for staffing vendors (e.g. onsite contingency staffing partners) which is great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We didn’t have a true ATS prior to iCIMS which we implemented a couple years ago. We used it initially to streamline our process and create a standardized process for recruitment. Since then we have used the metrics and reporting tools to allow us to gain insights in to performance and recruitment bottlenecks, as well as create tighter alignment with finance for budgeting alignment purposes. We continue to look at refining the processes we have to create high levels of automation and data tracking.

"Enjoying iCIMS! "

What do you like best?

The ability to do several things at one time is probably what I enjoy the most about iCIMS. I am able to send "screened out" letters to all unsuccessful applicants with one click. The option to add variables in the emails are very helpful. It allows the emails to be personalized as it customizes the job title and job location applied for and the candidates name.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how we have to go to the candidate's "Person Profile" to access additional documents such as cover letters and candidate questionnaires.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great applicant tracking system. Contains all of the features that we were looking for! I highly recommend!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are figuring out where it is the best to post jobs on based on where we are getting most of our applicants from. Also, we are able to allow a select amount of people access the resumes and cover letters. We are also saving time on tedious tasks because iCIMS has a lot of automatic features.

"iCIMS Review from a Recruiter / Administrator"

What do you like best?

I really like how we can personalize all the different steps and processes within the system.

What do you dislike?

I would like some more guidance and support on best practices on how to set up our system. There are so many options it can be quite cumbersome. We roll out things to the field and then learn there is more to it and then the field gets so many updates from us it feels like our system is never at a point of just functioning so we can do our jobs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The biggest recommendation I have for new customers is to first understand all the different product lines iCIMS offers. You'd think if you bought the Recruit program - then you could source from you candidates but that is a different product line. You need to understand what you need then buy the correct product lines.

The other recommendation is to request a dedicated Account Manager to support you on building out your system the best you can before launching it. We rolled out an off the shelf program and going back to create all our work flows and educate the field is a big challenge.

The ease of use and flow of the process is really smooth once you have the right programs and the right workflow built out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The largest business problem is rolling out a brand new recruiting function within our organization. With the ATS we also have a centralized staffing team to support certain levels of the positions.

However we do expect the field to manage their own recruiting. So, teaching the field how to use the system and follow the correct recruiting process is our biggest challenge.

For those in the field that embrace the process they have seen a big positive impact on their ability to fill their vacancies. I have seen a couple buildings take their # of openings down from 15 to 2-3 openings.

"Recruit has been a good product"

What do you like best?

The features that I like about recruit the best would be:

* The workflow is very customizable

* Email individuals at each status

* Approval paths for offers and jobs are great

* Dashboards are very customizable

What do you dislike?

The features that I dis-like about recruit are:

* iCIMS is built based on template so configure the system as far as branding goes is nearly impossible

* Admin access is very limited in what we can do

* Have to call the help desk multiple times a day to get any little change done

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendations would be is if your a small company and don't want to have much configuration and don't have a sales group then this would be the product for you. It not as customizable as we would like and everything we ask for takes a while to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems we are solving is:

* being able to report on how recruiters are doing

* being able to have approval paths on job req's and offer letters

* streamlining the process to make it easier for candidates

"A solid CRM"

What do you like best?

The software is trustworthy and reliable. iCims won't let you down. It is a professional piece of software that is also easy to learn and intuitive.

What do you dislike?

The UI is ugly, even when you click on both colour schemes. I spend a lot of my day looking at it, however it is not too pleasant to look at. The quality of software has increased so much recently and people are used to perfected and pretty design - there is no excuse for it to look like its from 2005.

Competitors avature and bullhorn are prettier I know they are built on javascript which offer a wider range of aesthetic features. The steps are often clunky, slow and time-consuming, when every minute counts it is a drain on resources when it takes 3 minutes to input a new candidate. I'm not sure why you have to load a new page at every step, on other CRM's you can do it all on the same page without reloading it and using up time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solved the problem of tracking candidates and having all of our information in one place. Now everyone can go to iCims to see the latest information this helps if someone is away on vacation or if they are ill - it is easy to pick up from where they left off. There is also good features on confidentiality so only certainly people can see particular roles/candidates.

"Simple, effective way to post, track and maintain information"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, if Find candidates is important to your organization ICIMS is great for you. In addition to screening, and hire the best candidates more efficiently with a powerful applicant tracking system that's built to fit your needs.

What do you dislike?

Cost – we are a grand funded Federal program and budget needs to be managed; implementation was time consuming due to firewalls with our system is not as simple to use and requires several levels of approval. Value for private sector is incredible; we did not have the opportunity to experience all the available features and robust capability of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to hire the right person for position, writing a great ad, posting, attracting the right person is imperative; ability to track and approach your potential employee it is the utmost when it comes to relationship building; even if you do not hire the candidate you need to maintain positive feedback and create great report for your organization.

"Workflow customization made simple!"

What do you like best?

As a newer recruiting team we were just defining and tweaking our workflows when we implemented iCIMS. Once we had each step of the workflow defined, it was so easy to go back in to tweak or add fields if we needed additional information!

What do you dislike?

The only thing that we dislike is that sometimes emails sent from iCIMS to candidates (forwarding iForms for the candidates to complete, for example) sometimes get stuck in their "Junk Mail" folders because of the sending email address format (series of letters and numbers) that does not resemble our corporate email address at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, you will love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We feel that we are much more organized and workflows and candidates no longer slip through the cracks. We are gaining efficiency in our processes, and that is so valuable! In addition, Social Distribution of our open positions and use of iCIMS by our Hiring Managers has increased both external and internal communication and partnership.

"My expericence is somewhat below average."

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I have the option to look up anything in the right hand corner with easy access. I can find any candidate without the hassle of going into the requisition.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how much detail needs to be completed but no fields are marked as required. With integrations we have to have every field filled out and edit fields in order to make a successful integration and it is very manual for the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A lot of open communication is necessary with the iCIMS team. You must be willing to put in just as much work as the system in order for it to be successful and useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are getting candidates into the system and sending them paperwork. It is nice when the candidate fills everything out and we have access to the papers in a somewhat orderly fashion. I like that all paperwork will go into each person the same way and same order as long as we enter them in the correct way.

"2016 Review"

What do you like best?

I like how customizable iCIMS is, there aren't many restrictions on what can do. This makes it extremely easy to make the system work for your business. I also really love their help desk and the training they offer. Every single person I have spoken with at the help desk has been extremely helpful and friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike icims for the same reason that I like them. It is SO customizable that sometimes it is somewhat overwhelming. Sometimes it is difficult to figure out how to make the changes on your own without calling the help desk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use forced workflow statuses. Some of our generalists were forgetting to put candidates into the interview workflow so when we went to report on the data it looked like we interviewed a lot fewer candidates than we really had. We now require candidates to be placed in that status prior to offering them a job

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

iCIMS has completely transformed the way that we recruit and onboard candidates. It has been most effective in helping us track and remember candidates that may have applied before. The reporting features have also helped us track so much information that would have been previously lost or simply not recorded.
