    Workstream Applicant Tracking System Reviews and Badges of Customer Satisfaction

    “Workstream is a top-notch company! Without Workstream’s automated platform, our recruiting team would be overwhelmed.  Envoy America receives 1500-3000 applications each month and Workstream’s automated messages and simple customized format make managing our huge volume possible, with minimum manpower. This format enables us to complete other important tasks associated with hiring. Our applicants comment on how organized we are and enjoy the immediate text and email responses that are due to the Workstream platform.  The Workstream staff has excellent customer service and is always willing to help solve problems.  They help us create custom templates which are specific to our company needs. Thank you Workstream!”

    "Very easy platform to use for hiring, and I love how you can easily communicate with applicants rather than using personal emails or cell phones"
