Out of all the software I have looked at, Recruiterbox comes with the best pricing structure giving me exactly what I need. We currently own a small business so this application acts as an affordable option with all the features that come with a much more expensive solution.I absolutely love the email templates as well as the fact that I can create custom application questions and rejection reasons as well as new candidates through e-mail and tagging.
I can manage the intern program as well as all the resumes easily and streamline candidate management also. I can review all the processes as well.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
I would rather like the integration with Calendly or other scheduling software available with this application, especially Outlook.

- Recruiterbox is a software that is really easy to use and can be used by anyone. It comes with a great set of features as well that helps making the entire recruitment process smooth. The best part of this application is that it always adds new features and integrations to create a dynamic platform for all the users. It comes with a lot of tools that help with collaboration among team members and also helps me screen all my candidates quickly and effectively.
- The embedded job widget that is available on the website could use improvement as well as the interview scheduling tool. We feel like there is a need for a better search option for filtering tools. It would be of great help if I also had a tool where I could select the availability of all my candidates and schedule their interviews instead of using Google Appointment which does not come as an integration with Recruiterbox.
