At our company, we use Greenhouse Recruitment as an applicant tracking system and recruiting software. When candidates apply for a job opening, their candidate profile gets instantly created on the system. Since we have configured workflow into the system for each job category, it helps recruiters to easily identify at which stage the candidate is at. When the hiring manager asks recruiters, they will also be able to answer how many candidates are at each stage. For instance, 10 were at the recruiter interview and 3 were waiting for an offer to be signed. We also integrate the Greenhouse system into the Workday system. At the moment the candidate is marked as hired, the candidate profile becomes an employee profile in Workday. The ability to integrate with other systems significantly saves the HR team so many manual hours.
  • Tracking the stage of each candidate.
  • Greenhouse has built-in report functionalities allowing all types of data to be extracted.
  • Greenhouse has the abilty to customize workflow for each job.
  • Greenhouse allows the admin to set approval flow when sending offers or even when creating jobs.
  • Greenhouse has custom options that allow the HR team to add necessary fields that HR would like to track. The ability to create new fields allows Greenhouse to be easily synced with other systems as well.
  • Greenhouse has the ability to create integrate with other systems well.
  • Greenhouse doesn't allow complex custom options. We can only select it to show or not show based on office location or job department.
  • Greenhouse has a reporting features but cannot extract certain data points.
  • To merge a candidate together, the user needs the same access for both jobs which is ridiculous. One cannot be higher than the other.
  • Greenhouse has a limited Security option, unlike Workday. For example, offer access for Site Admin can only be turned on or off, but not per job. Security is heavily critical for a system like Greenhouse as it contains candidate offer data.
Based on the points mentioned previously, Greenhouse Recruitment is definitely one of the best applicant tracking software out there. Even though it contains limitations, which all systems do, it will improve over time. If I want to recommend Greenhouse product to a friend or a company that is considering using the system, I would inform them that do not to be afraid of learning the system. Greenhouse has thousands of comprehensive articles on its website. Whatever you would like to know about the system, Greenhouse Community contains it all. Greenhouse also has really responsive support that can help sort various issues out.

Greenhouse is good ATS system. This integrates well with other platforms. It is easy to use and has great reporting capabilities to analyse recruiting data. I am using Greenhouse for 4 years and never ever faced any challenge while using it. UI of the product is very clean and one can easily become hands on in few uses. I have used other ats systems as well but I am super happy with Greenhouse.
  • Reporting
  • Tracking Candidate Pipeline
  • Posting jobs on career page and tracking applications
  • The offer approval process can be streamlined further
  • ATS can also improve on the candidate search within database functionality
Smooth, easy to use ats with great reporting functionality. This solves many business challenges, you can track all your recruiting data at one place. It integrates well with other platforms hence no need to do high level of coding to enable other tools on top of it. Also, Greenhouse support is great.

Greenhouse is our end to end applicant tracking system. I support our Talent Acquisition team as their HR Business Partner and use Greenhouse for a variety of compliance, hiring, and other use cases. Greenhouse helps us hire and onboard employees and allows the HR/compliance team to manage employee hiring records effectively.
  • Ease of search for Candidates
  • Easy scorecards
  • Easy reference of hiring materials
  • Solid user interface
  • More navigable for documents
  • API/connection to our HRIS
  • Faster load times
For a fast-paced startup, with rapid hiring, Greenhouse is a great tool. Our whole TA team prefers using greenhouse to other applicant tracking systems (ATS). For larger companies you may want to use a tool that is complimentary/built into your HRIS but for earlier stage companies, Greenhouse is great.

Using Green house to schedule and source candidates from Different Job Boards. Collecting feedback of Interviews and Keeping candidates informed about their feedback is easy and can Green house is making it better day to day.
We are managing whole Recruitment life cycle of an employee through Greenhouse.
Assigning Hiring Managers and recruiters is very easy for any Job. Internal Referrals and Job postings are also been published in Greenhouse.
  • Scheduling and rescheduling of Interviews - Integration with G Meet, Zoom and few other platforms are great
  • Integration with career Page - Integration of ATS Greenhouse with career page is easy and response from different job boards is quite good
  • Providing feedback to employees - Feedback of the Interview can be given to employees on a click of a button
  • There should be an option where we can upload our own format of offer letter and it can be shared through Greenhouse. Sorry if I missed exploring this option in detail
  • Customer support team should be available when required on a short notice
  • Dashboard can be modified to give few more Insights
Well suited for Big organizations where recruitment is a daily task. Understanding of Greenhouse workings is simple and it is not difficult to train people who use it for first time.
Greenhouse is less appropriate if you are looking for sharing offer letters or doing employee onboarding. Did not had a great experience in doing that

Greenhouse allows us to integrated all our recruitment and talent sourcing activities and process. For a large company like OLIVER having a central Recruitment System is essential and Greenhouse provides us with that.
  • Job BoardS Integrated
  • cv parsing
  • Interview Management
  • CRM
  • More Integration
  • User Interface
  • Bulk Canadidate Import
Greenhouse merges very well with most of the Job Board we use such as Indeed, Linkedin Recruiter and others. It makes it easy to import date from these job boards onto the system. However, more can be done when it comes to bulk candidate import, I think there should be a feature that allows us to adding bulk candidates at a go.

I've worked in startups where I have been first on the ground in Talent Acquisition and implement processes from the start. Thus I am the decisionmaker on the recruiting tools chosen to manage our hiring process and Greenhouse is always my go to. We use Greenhouse to set up our interview plans for each role, to assign interviewers for each interview, to assign interview questions, to manage candidates throughout the interview lifecycle, to communicate with candidates, and to connect to our careers website to allow applications and connect easily to LinkedIn and other job advertising.
  • Customization of interview plans, questions, interviewer roles for multiple positions
  • Manages efficient and timely candidate, hiring manager, and interviewer communication
  • Integrates with other tools needed in the hiring process such as sourcing tools and onboarding systems
  • Provides analytics and reporting to allow for data insights and process improvements
  • Provides an Onboarding feature that makes the hiring cycle seamless from first interview to hire date
  • Often said that Greenhouse's user interface isn't as sleek or simple as other ATS's
  • Some of the clickthroughs could be minimized for some tasks
  • Incorporating a sourcing tool rather than having to purchase one outside the system and integrating it would be beneficial
Greenhouse has been beneficial to streamline our interview process as well as onboarding of new hires with it's rich functionality around candidate management and correspondence, interview plan customizations, feedback loop management and data insights/ reporting capabilities. Greenhouse is also easy to roll out to our company, users have had no issues adopting and using the tool for interviews, referrals, and submitting written feedback. One area that would be beneficial to see in the future is a way to incorporate the entire prospecting cycle into the tool i.e. a sourcing functionality that currently is handled by purchasing a tool through another vendor.

We use Greenhouse for candidate interview management, including resume repository, post-interview scoring, meeting reminders, and general candidate feedback for the interviewers, with central application consumption handled by our HR department. Without any similar software, the process is all manual and spread across many people and departments, which is inefficient and difficult to manage.
  • Easy for interviewers to use
  • Centralizes feedback for later review
  • Provide a way for interviewers to input questions and candidates answers for other interviewers to review so questions and effort aren't duplicated
Well suited for organizations that need a simple way to manage the interview process in a centralized way. If you need more customization, lots of bells and whistles, a private/on-prem only solution, etc., it may not be right for your organization.

Greenhouse is utilized in our organization as an ATS system. Our aim is to organize our candidates by role they apply to, the software reflects the roles to linkedin and other websites so that potential employees can see the roles and apply. The software also goes beyond this basic ATS feature by allowing us to source through resumes by key word, and to run reports to look at specific recruiting statistics.
  • Greenhouse has an excellent ability to read resumes so that you can source through applicants in a very similar fashion to linkedin sourcing.
  • Ability to set up auto interview scheduling for first round interviews
  • Posting roles is quite simple
  • Better auto scheduling abilities (ie panel interviews, setting up more than 1 at once, helping with canceling/rescheduling)
  • Can be difficult to get managers trained on the tool
  • Permission access is super annoying - ie when you set up an interview this does not automatically give the interviewer permission to view the interviewee's resume
Greenhouse is a great tool is you want a relatively intuitive ATS system, it is probably one of the best on the market.

Greenhouse has helped with referring people into the company, keeping track of their stage in the interview process and learning what role is available to be shared to my networks. It allows me to keep track of who I've referred and who has applied via my referral link on my social media sites.

Also, the auto-posting function which links to my personal linkedin profile helps in providing exposure for the company.
  • Keeping track of referrals who have applied to a specific role
  • Jobs that the company looking to fill
  • Connection with LinkedIn to allow auto posting of job vacancies.
  • The dashboard could be made more modern as it feels relatively old
  • Connection to more social sites could be useful
I would say that Greenhouse is a very useful tool for hiring as it makes my life easier to keep track of everyone I have referred, the status, which jobs they have applied to, which jobs are available to be shared and learning more about the candidate when I'm involved in the interview process.

Greenhouse is the ATS we have used as our company scaled from 70 up to 600+. The software has a lot of capabilities and is somewhat customizable. We use it for posting roles, receiving applications and managing candidates throughout the interview process including sending all communications to candidates and managing internal logistics and interview feedback for candidates.
  • Receiving applications and reviewing them
  • Managing interview feedback / scorecards
  • Posting roles
  • Design - the product is not pretty
  • Intuitiveness, once learned the product is pretty easy but some aspects of the product are not super logical such as the location of certain buttons etc.
Greenhouse is well suited for midsize companies that want an array of features in their ATS but aren't yet ready and don't need the massive clunky ATS's of mega-corporations (like Workday). It is customizable and flexible and once learned the product is pretty easy use.

Internal jobs and mobility is the primary use here. We use this software to post internal job positions and manage applications. I have personally submitted applications for internal roles in other departments and have set up interviews with our recruiting team. It have generally worked very well for our team and presents no major roadblocks as it is very easy and intuitive to use.
  • Posts job postings
  • Allows for submission of applications
  • Reviewing active submissions of applications
  • Allowing for additional customization of the fields that are added to postings
  • Allow options to show further status information on submitted applications or options to follow up directly
I have applied to a role in another department via our company's internal jobs board and the process was very smooth.

We used Greenhouse for both our ATS and CRM system. The platform allows us to successfully complete the entire recruitment process - from setting up requisitions, candidate management and sending out offers.

We also have a number of tools that integrate successfully with the platform such as Calendly to schedule interviews and CodeSignal for technical exercises.
  • Candidate Tracking
  • Reporting and Analytics
  • Interview Scheduling
  • Application reviews
  • It could be easier to search for existing candidates that have been rejected previously
  • Duplications can sometimes be manual
  • Application review stage isn't overly user friendly
It's awesome for all areas of our recruiting process and I really would recommend the system.
- Setting up requisitions
- Reviewing candidates
- Sending out technical assessments
- Scheduling interviews
- Sending out offers

Greenhouse allows our talent acquisition team to effectively organize and manage talent pipelines. It also allows us to monitor pipeline health through candidate passthrough rates to improve hiring efficiency. Greenhouse provides reporting that we can share with talent leadership and hiring teams to collaborate on recruitment strategies and best practices.
  • Organizing interviewing plans (i.e. modules, loops and questions)
  • Creating reports on candidate passthrough rates
  • Efficient tools for application review and candidate management
  • Full Text Search capabilities for bulk candidate review
  • Permission access levels when sharing candidates with cross-functional teams
  • Scorecard organization across multiple requisitions
Greenhouse is an effective tool to organize candidate pipeline & supporting an interview process with multiple stages and generating offers for candidate. If working with a third-party recruitment firm or tracking multiple channels, Greenhouse is also effective when tracking the particular source of submitted candidate applications. Greenhouse is also helpful to reference historical feedback on candidates.

We use Greenhouse only as an ATS. It's great for receiving applications, collaborating with the hiring team to review applications, deal with interview scheduling, and tracking offers.
  • Track source of applications
  • Allow to collaborate easily with the hiring team to review applications
  • Interview scheduling
  • The sourcing capabilities are absolutely horrible!
  • Allowing to read the previous candidate history easily (previous applications, comments)
  • The UI is not the most intuitive
Greenhouse is a good ATS but I do not think it is the greatest one and done tool for recruiting teams. There is significant room for improvement when it comes to sourcing within Greenhouse and displaying past candidates information in a way that is easy to navigate.

We use Greenhouse as our ATS system to track and manage candidate applications to jobs organization-wide. Greenhouse also serves as a CRM database for future passive candidates that we may want to consider for roles we paused or new roles in areas we previously recruited in. The product solves our reporting issues and allows us to look at the big picture of how well our organization is doing at recruiting top talent.
  • Advertising Job Posts
  • Providing candidate feedback
  • Tracking candidate interview progress
  • Reporting on recruiting metrics
  • Managing offer process
  • Importing assessment results into Greenhouse from integrations.
  • Company website page needs to be easier to navigate and more appealing.
  • Bulk importing candidates by drag and drop method.
Greenhouse is great for a small-mid-sized company to attract and maintain talent. It would be less suited for a very large, matrixed organization that needs advanced reporting tools. I think Greenhouse is very efficient for a smaller organization that uses several hiring managers when making decisions, but once the company is heavily matrixed it can be a little more challenging to manage the interview process and stay on top of a lot more interviews going on.

It is our ATS platform where all employees have access to in order to submit referrals or if the hire, be part of interview teams to submit scorecards.
  • Adding new employees to systems.
  • Referral links.
  • Chat support.
  • CSM contact.
  • Locating things we need (data).
  • Navigation.
We default to chat support as our CSM isn't the most communicative. We just started that relationship so hopefully it will get better. It is easy to update permissions and integrate with platforms like GoodTime, Searchlight, HireRight. My first year using this platform so there is definitely a learning curve that I've been working through.

We used Greenhouse to assess applicants, record interview notes, and rate candidates. Before interviews, we were assigned core values in Greenhouse to ask in the interviews, so that we did not overlap or miss anything. Afterwards, we submitted our assessments and they were reviewed by the hiring manager. Then we debriefed.
  • rating candidates as a Yes, No, Strong Yes, or Strong No
  • able to assign questions to ask in interviews
  • easy to view candidates' applications, resumes, and cover letters before interviews
  • add functionality so that interview notes can be taken on the website, not just after
  • use AI to assess how applicants' resumes and cover letters meet job requisition and assign a score
  • converge assessments from other interviewers to see a summary view
I think Greenhouse is well suited for a smaller company that does not have many applicants, candidates, or interviewers. For a larger company, it seems too manual and needs more automation. I also would like to see a number rating scale or a neutral rating, rather than yes or no.

Greenhouse is our Applicant Tracking System (ATS), or primary recruiting tool. It offers a modern user interface, delivered graphical dashboards and a streamlined application workflow. It does not, however, include a comprehensive careers page beyond basic job listings with search and filters, or recruitment marketing / candidate relationship management (CRM) features. All in all, a good choice for simpler companies. For customers with more complex needs - or a desire to consolidate vendors - perhaps less so.
  • Analytics / dashboards
  • Modern user interface
  • Streamlined application workflow
  • Customer relationship management
  • Custom careers site
  • Translations into less common languages
Greenhouse is a strong choice for smaller to medium sized companies, or larger companies with less complex needs. In particular, prospective customers that require many translations into less common languages, have many different workflows or other requirements (e.g. country-specific applications, multiple brands / templates, etc) may not find everything they need from Greenhouse.

I've used Greenhouse for applying and aggregating company applications. It addresses the problem of having to apply to many companies and keep track of the status of each.
  • The application almost never has bugs and works smoothly.
  • The UI is very well done and all tasks are articulated and displayed clearly to the user.
  • Once the applying process is complete it is clear and I'm not wondering whether there is anything else to do.
  • I'd like it if there was a way for me to sign in and see all the places I've applied and reuse information
  • Resume parsing can often be buggy and I'm better off not using it
  • Applications can be flooded with text and scrolling through all of it while trying to find the parts I need to do myself can be tedious.
The space Greenhouse is in is very competitive and there are lots of applying-based services. I think for any company trying to make the applying process as easy as possible would do well with Greenhouse. The scenario I think would be not as necessary is for large companies that already are flooded with applicants, using Greenhouse may actually lead to an undesired effect of repeat applicants and too many unqualified applicants because of how simple it is.

We use Greenhouse for potential employees while they are in the pipeline and going through the interview process. Greenhouse allows us to have a repository where we can keep all information on potential employees that can be accessed by anyone participating in the process and can collaborate to make an employment decision.
  • Client Tracking
  • Document Repository
  • Feedback Notes
  • Movement between different phases of interview process
  • Workflow capabilities
  • Comment/Dialogue between users
Greenhouse is great for when employment decisions need to be made quickly with many stakeholders involved. With this application those involved in the process can see the candidates resume as well as the notes that other interviewers have had from their interactions. This allows the candidate to have more targeted interviews as they get deeper in the process.

Well I have used this product in our hiring process in collaboration with hiring team. Tool actually does great job in terms of sending out mailers to candidates and provides 360 degrees view of whole ecosystem in each candidate interview. Actually collates feedback from various sources and provides overall health of profile. Also has ability to send reminders to users to ensure no one miss out timelines.
  • Providing 360 degree view of hiring stages
  • Gathering feedback from various sources to get a clean understanding about applicant
  • Integration with tools like Outlook, Social media tools
  • Sending alerts to users when there’s new updated posted by administrators
  • Past history visibility
  • It has ability to connect social network tools but would love to see same over emails to send customised job notification to seekers
Integration is at its best I would say, we can have our mail box connected with Greenhouse account and also it has ability to get real time data from tools like workday to push REQ into market. I personally liked the tool when I saw candidate feedback from multiple sources on my screen. Really does the job for everyone in the business by saving hours of time.

Greenhouse is being used as an applicant tracking system throughout the organization across geography. As the company is growing, it is of the utmost importance for us to hire A players. The Greenhouse ATS helped HighRadius create a win-win-win scenario for candidates, panelists, and HighRadius, as it will aim to improve the entire candidate experience, further optimize our recruiting and referral process, streamline communications, and continue to encourage a recruiting-driven culture​. The system is intended to complement our talent experience playbook and the HighGrade interview process.
  • Helps bring consistency through its functionality of scorecard
  • Organizing the recruitment process
  • Integration with other apps
  • Customizable workflows to help meet the demands of different business managers

Greenhouse is well suited to scale up an organization's hiring process. It organizes and adds a structure to the hiring process. One could look at the entire hiring journey and stages in the application process--though the tool has too many features and gets confusing for some people.
