HireVue
Chose HireVue
Some other locations use VidCruiter, but we have ultimately decided to stick with HireVue due to the ease of sharing candidates across a large organization. Everyone can use HireVue, and it's so simple and effective that there's no point in us looking elsewhere.
Chose HireVue
Our current cost point is appealing and we have only received positive feedback from users and hiring managers. No real reason to switch to another company at this time.

HireVue
HireVue was very well suited for my interviewing process with my current company for both my initial hire and my lateral move within the organization. It was very convenient given where I am geographically located to interview with our corporate office in Rhode Island. It provided the convenience of interviewing remotely for the opening posted.

VidCruiter
VidCruiter is best suited for those that want to be paperless and go the digital route. VidCruiter gives the option to record the live interviews so they remain on the platform if we ever need to go back to review. In my opinion there is not a scenario where this is not appropriate, because if you don't see a function of interest, VidCruiter will consider creating it or figure a way to make it happen for you

Pros
HireVue
  • It allows candidates to be recorded answering some initial interview questions and eliminates the need for recruiters or hiring manager to get on the phone or meet with them live.
  • It stores the video interviews in a manner that is easy to do, use, and recover.
  • It's also great to be able to record these interviews and then they can be shared with others on the team as needed for panel interview purposes, etc.

VidCruiter
  • VidCruiter is my first Applicant Tracking System but it was still relatively easy to set up exactly to our needs and there was lots of support over email and the phone / internet meetings during the setup and after. It is easy to use and update too, no coding ability needed.
  • The integrated video and live interviews are unique to VidCruiter and why we chose it over competing products. They are easy to setup and use and provide the HR staff with a much more personal feeling for who the applicants are.
  • The auto rating of the applicants and their references along with the easy rating of applicant video interviews and any other data entered sorts applicants after what abilities are important to your company and makes it easy to start with the most suited candidates and work your way down.

Cons
HireVue
  • We have experienced some technical issues with the Live Interview feature. A lot of time it is because the user's computer settings are not set up correctly.
  • They are working on adding a feature that will allow you to edit the email templates. Hoping for this to be released soon as it is nice to have different communications sent out for different cites around the globe.
  • Customized CodeVues can be difficult to set up. Recommend having a technical employee help out with this. Would like to see more CodeVue questions added to the Question Library.

VidCruiter
  • Humanizing the experience for applicants
  • Give more information about how the video will be used
  • Clarity on deadlines for performance task
  • The error message is vague ("Either you have withdrawn from this process or the deadline to complete this process has been reached") which one? You should know!

The company is currently looking into other ATS systems, with that we aren't sure the need to continue to use HireVue.

VidCruiter
This is our first season of using VidCruiter or any ATS. We are very happy with the time saved and level of organization and clarity that using VidCruiter has provided. We have a ton of ideas for improvements for the next season, and the flexibility of the system, the easy setup and maintenance and the very responsive support from VidCruiter makes this easy.

Gray Peak doesn't even compare to HireVue. Where I think Gray Peak is a 2 or 3 out of 10, I am absolutely convinced that HireVue is a 10! Yes there are probably some tweaks for HireVue but this product is truly amazing. It impresses me each day with the volume that we are able to put through and how it is a complete convenience for ALL parties involved in the process

VidCruiter
We selected VidCruiter over Spark Hire mostly because of the ability to edit rubrics. In a world where equity is at the top, we must be able to rate candidates in a non-biased way and being able to edit the rubrics allows us to do so. We also through customer service was top notch at VidCruiter and decided to keep using it (we considered switching to Spark Hire at one point)

Return on Investment
HireVue
  • Time to fill has been reduced/ shortened since we are able to screen more candidates quicker.
  • Time to schedule has been shortened as candidates are able to self-schedule their own interviews with a hiring manager; no more chasing people through phone calls to coordinate multiple schedules.
  • Candidate reach has been greatly enhanced - we can reach more candidates than we ever could with traditional phone screening.

  • It could be a great ROI for those who are able to manage daily
  • When not in use, overall contract terms still apply.
  • Does need a good amount of time invested in using.
