A Program for all your needs

What do you like best?

We use Neogov software for our evaluations and job application at work. It's a nice, simple and colorful program.

What do you dislike?

Since we just began using it regularly it's not too much I can say I dislike. It will take me some time to get used to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you looking for something pretty and colorful with ease of use, this would be the perfect software.

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

We just began to use the software to administer evaluations to employees and I was one involved with the configurations of what we needed in the application. I do like how the supervisor and the employee can sit together on 2 ipads and complete the evaluation. As for the hiring program, it keeps everything simple and easy to navigate.

Review for NeoGov

What do you like best?

NeoGov is a robust software primarily designed for municipalities. It has multiple features that allow employers to track candidates for hire for various municipal/government positions. I especially like the feature that allows me to customize the application process by asking specific questions unique to that position. I like being able to search to see if the candidate has applied previously and for what positions. The automatic notification feature for candidates not chosen for an interview or for hire is one we use for every opening,

What do you dislike?

It is cubersome to have to go into NeoGov continuously to send applications to the SMEs (Subject Matter Experts). It would be ideal to be able to set it up once for all applications to go the SME rather than having to send them to the SME each day. It seems to take a while to flip back and forth to different folders within the system. There could be more logic applied to the way you search for items. Many times, instead of clicking on the job title, you must click elsewhere to get where you really want to be and you get lost along the way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NeoGov is quite pricey, but could be worth it if you utilize all the features. Frequent, daily use by a primary user will make it easy to navigate through, but for the occasional user, it can be cumbersome to find exactly what you are looking for without a lot of clicking back and forth.

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

We can streamline the hiring process and can involve hiring managers from multiple departments. The automatic email notification feature to applicants is a great time saver. We can have multiple individuals review the applications simultaneously to keep the hiring process moving along.

What do you like best?

Neogov is a well recognized platform in it's field. As an HR professional in a municipality, I see Neogov used in most of the surrounding cities. Compared to what a few others use, it definitely seems to be the most thorough and easiest to navigate, specifically from the applicant's end. From the professional end, I most like the applicant tracking portion. It stores everything in a easy to locate format ( so long as you are familiar with the system).

What do you dislike?

It is not the most user friendly system. There is quite a learning curve when training. Also, because there are so many routes to get to the same place it can cause some confusion in that aspect as well. The user interface seems a bit outdated as well. Could be a bit more visually appealing. The price compared to other similar services is a bit steep too.

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

Having all applicants come through an online system is a huge benefit in terms of job postings. No longer having to store any sort of paper application reduces the work load of records retention for us as well.

Good HR hiring and management program!

What do you like best?

NeoGov is a great management system for HR requisitions, hires and onboarding. It is definitely designed for governments and it is handy when you are doing national recruitments as it is likely that potential candidates have used NeoGov before and know the system.

What do you dislike?

The screen design/UX could be improved. A little difficult to navigate. There was a recent upgrade which helped, but still needs a little work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NeoGov has got the lock on local governments around the country. Therefore, the improvements made most likely will benefit your municipality.

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

HR postings, hiring, requisitions, approval processes, etc...

Large scale recruitment tool

What do you like best?

Level of organization for numerous users

What do you dislike?

Small ‘Go’ button make change difficult

Recommendations to others considering the product

Examine number of individual staff to be involved in hiring process. Do you have time to train all involved to add manual notes and status changes. System only is as good as individuals using it. Great if so.

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

Large scale recruitment for multiple departments. Managed by individual department managers for collecting applications and interviewing. Higher level controls for HR to coordinate hiring process.
