We asked Carrie (Williams) McCall from GMAC Insurance what she thought of myStaffingPro applicant tracking system. Below are her responses to our brief survey.
What is your experience with using an applicant tracking system? While I’ve been with GMACI, we’ve had 3 applicant tracking systems. When I first came on board, we were using Resumix. After roughly a year, we switched to Vurv. When we were sold in March, we lost our access to Vurv and began simply tracking via spreadsheet. We quickly outgrew that and began the search for a new system. That’s what lead us to MSP.
How long have you been using myStaffingPro? Since 10/25/10
How has myStaffingPro affected your processes (i.e. cost effectiveness, time to fill, etc.) At this point, we don’t have any real data to share, but I do know that it has greatly improved the time it takes to source candidates. With our previous system (or lack there of), we were unable to weed out candidates that didn’t fit our basic requirements. With MSP, we are able to do that. This has lead to a decrease in the number of resumes that have to be screened. I have also taken advantage of the scoring and list features which have helped me sort candidates and focus on those that are better matches.
What is your favorite myStaffingPro feature? The build a list of candidate feature. This feature allows me to search resumes that contain search words. Just this morning, I was able to quickly narrow my candidate pool down from 60 to 11 by entering a keyword.
What would you say to other HR professionals about myStaffingPro? I feel so thankful to have MSP. Coming from a situation in which we had no system, I can truly appreciate all of the features that MSP provides. I’ve cut my sourcing time significantly. MSP is also very easy to set up, implement and use. It’s also very easy to make real time changes to. In addition, the support that we’ve gotten from our MSP rep, Amy has been top notch. She is super responsive and has a wealth of knowledge.
With all the time you have saved since using MSP, what do you do with your extra time? Ha! What extra time? Just kidding. I’ve actually been able to focus more on my professional development. During the 4th quarter of 2010, I was able to study for and pass the SPHR.
