PCRecruiter At A Glance

Good: Approaches applicant tracking needs with CRM tools for complete comprehension.
Bad: May contain many unnecessary functions beyond standard recruitment tasks.
Bottom Line: Passive and active recruiting features for sourcing large talent pools.

Product Overview

PCRecruiter is a web-based Applicant Tracking System (ATS) with recruiting tools modeled after Customer Relationship Management (CRM) needs. The system contains robust features for pre-hire applicant tracking with robust search and customization capabilities, supporting an organized and accessible database. PCRecruiter provides first-party sourcers with the same tools that an outsourced recruiter might use, combined with email management, compliance, reporting, and manager communication portals necessary for HR.


While Main Sequence offers hundreds of functions within its solutions, PCRecruiter contains 10 key features for meeting HR’s recruiting needs. These features focus on recruiter workflow while capturing relevant data on each applicant.

Customizable Layouts: Users may choose which fields appear on names, departments, and requisitions with custom groupings and field labels to suit terminology. Configurability extends to custom search options and results, lists, reports, and so on.

Custom Fields / Forms: The system offers a virtually unlimited number of custom fields and searchable custom forms for tracking relevant data. Forms can be emailed to applicants to directly enter information, such as skills or licensing details. The system also contains tables for keeping track of custom and default tags.

Pipeline: As the “backbone” of the system, each stage of the recruitment process is represented as a step in the requisition’s Pipeline. As candidates are moved through the process from initial entry to final hire, the Pipeline tracks their progress and automates emails.

Multi-Function Lists: The “Rollup Lists” feature is used for grouping applicants, contacts, requisitions, or departments for storing search results, mass-moves, sub-grouping, bulk email sends, and much more.

EEO/OFCCP: Handling The system allows for complete OFCCP compliance and logging of diversity sourcing.

MS Outlook Portal / IMAP Email: PCRecruiter offers tracking and sync with IMAP email and Gmail Calendar, as well as an optional direct embed of the ATS into Microsoft Outlook.

Manager Portal: Allows hiring authorities outside of the HR department to review resumes and applicant pipelines in a limited fashion, as well as to submit requisitions to HR.

Approval Processes: Email approval chains allow for documented approval of submitted requisitions from multiple contacts within the organization.

Job Posting: A built-in job board module embeds easily in practically any website, and the system includes direct feeding of open jobs to Indeed, Glassdoor, and other services.

Public API: The PCRecruiter API makes it possible to connect the database with a growing list of third-party vendors for background checks, video interviewing, text messaging, and more to come.

Main Sequence’s implementation program goes as follows:

1.     Consultation with a sales expert

2.     Training by phone and screen-share with the Main Sequence in-house team

3.     Data Conversion from previous software (if needed)

4.     Rollout

Main Sequence’s Data Conversion services consider data migration a mission-critical process. Users have access to PCRecruiter’s built-in import utilities for self-service, or, for clients with more complex data structures, Main Sequence’s experienced team can handle any data migration requirements between systems.

If you have questions concerning what data migration is, any costs attached, or if you could just do it yourself, check out details on Main Sequence Migration Services.

Customer Service & Support

Main Sequence offers support and training requests throughout the week and on Sundays (8am-Midnight Mon-Thurs, 8am-9pm Friday, and 6pm-Midnight Sunday).

Training and technical “How-To” help can be reached by phone or through a Help Desk login. Main Sequence also offers self-support options such as the Learning Center for accessing frequently asked questions.


Pricing starts at around $85/user per month for a basic two-year contract. It includes access to the current version of PCRecruiter, secure storage of individual database(s) with daily backups, as well as standard support and service.


PCRecruiter is an all-in-one recruiting system, and might resemble complexities found in a staffing firm’s dedicated solution. Recruitment teams without well-defined workflows may find the initial setup curve to be steeper than those with an already fine-tuned process.

Some users have noted that while the system meets all of their needs, it also contains many unnecessary functions.
