“Exactly what I needed to make our site how I wanted it .. and all in-house”
What do you like best?
We didn’t love the functionality or design of Bullhorn’s own “open source career portal”, and our website runs on WordPress – so Matador is exactly what I needed.
Matador integrates with Bullhorn to publish jobs and allow candidates to apply, but because it runs in WordPress I was able to control the look-and-feel of the job board, and the candidate experience. With a bit of WordPress, we were able to do everything in-house – and leverage the incredible wealth of plugins and resources out there for WordPress.
Matador runs nicely in the back, making a better candidate application process and I can take care of the front end design.
What do you dislike?
This might be a pro or con (depending on how you look at it) but it’s pretty generic out of the box. It works well, we’ve done a lot of customization to get it where we wanted it & tailor it specifically to our needs.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are working in WordPress – this is a no-brainer.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Not having to hire an outside developer or manage a career portal outside our main site has saved significant resources (both time and money); I’m already dealing with WordPress and so I’m very happy not to have to manage yet another system (or hire a developer if we want to make simple changes) The applicant experience is consistent with the rest of our site and our brand.
