BambooHR ATS At A Glance

Good: Integration between ATS and HRMS systems, mobile-friendly job postings, collaborative hiring functionality.
Bad: Not intended for larger companies, video interviewing isn't offered.
Bottom Line: Applicant tracking system designed to help small to medium-sized companies improve their hiring practices.

Product Overview

This review focuses on BambooHR’s applicant tracking module. We’ve reviewed its human resources management system (HRMS) software here.

BambooHR’s applicant tracking system (ATS) module is designed to help recruiters and hiring managers in small and medium-sized companies manage their hiring practices.

The ATS is integrated with BambooHR’s HRMS, so all a recruiter needs to do is mark the status as “hired” for hired candidates and duplicate data entry isn’t needed.

BambooHR ATS has other benefits, including:

  • User-friendly interface to easily find information such as candidate profiles
  • More efficient hiring practices
  • A dedicated mobile app so recruiters can perform talent acquisition tasks on the go
  • More collaboration in hiring (hiring managers and recruiters can post feedback on candidates straight from the module)


Here are some key features of BambooHR ATS:

As communicating with candidates via email is an important part of hiring, BambooHR provides standard email templates that can be customized as the need arises. Recruiters and hiring managers can also send multiple emails to applicants simultaneously to save time.

In addition, recruiters can create single or multiple job postings and post them to their company websites, job boards and social media sites with a single click.

There’s also a collaborative hiring feature within the module. Recruiters can ask hiring managers to rate candidates on a five-star system and provide comments. And recruiters can control what information hiring managers can and can’t see based on access permissions.

Another key feature: BambooHR offers an employee self-onboarding module that allows new hires to complete HR forms before their first day on the job. Each new hire receives a packet of electronic forms to fill out and sign electronically, as well as welcome emails from their new manager and team. The new hire’s first day can then be focused on other introductory activities, such as learning about job roles and company culture.
