My team starting using this recently to screen the candidates we were interested in. We used this in the initial stage of our recruitment to find candidates we wanted to move forward in the pipeline. Prior to using video interviews we were calling candidates on the phone. While this hasnt replaced that entirely (we still call candidates to inform them about certain things) it has cut down the amount of time we used to spend on the phone with the candidates. That frees us up to do other things. And being able to share video recordings of candidates also means we can involve other people in the hiring process much sooner than we were doing before.
  • Its really easy to use. We set up a training session when we signed up and after that we rarely had to get in touch with them.
  • Candidates can do interviews on mobile phone as well and its pretty smooth.
  • They provide tech support for candidates. That makes things easier for us since we can just drop an invite and they can handle the rest.
  • I loved that we could customise the interview page and the email that the candidates see. It was really nice to be able to include our branding on it.
  • It would be nice if we could download the videos to store them locally. Currently the only way to watch them is to stream them.
If you are looking to introduce pre recorded video interviews, this is worth looking into. Its pretty affordable so you dont have to make a sizeable commitment up front. However if you need AI based assessments or need to do coding challenges etc this is probably not for you. You can set up basic multiple choice etc questions but they are pretty bare bones. Its focus is very much on video interviews.

My company uses this for selecting candidates to bring in for interviews. They have an option where you can set up questions that candidates record a video answering. We use that option to find out what candidates would suit the profile we are hiring for the best and then bring those candidates in for an interview. It saves us a lot of time we would otherwise spend talking on the phone to people to try to figure out if they are the right ones for a job. And since the candidate doesn't have to be on the phone with us, they can do this whenever it works for them.

We also occasionally use its live interview feature. The good thing about that is we don't have to share any personal ID's for interviews (like we would need to for Skype) since both the candidate and us just get a link to conduct the interview. It is handy in case you want to have a discussion with a candidate that might be living far away before either of you commit to an in-person interview.
  • Works well on mobile. A lot of our candidates only have a mobile so we were glad that there were no issues with that.
  • They have technical support for candidates so we don't have to deal with tech issues.
  • The interface is really nice. I was able to understand how to set up interviews in just a few minutes.
  • Great pricing. You only pay based on what you use. I love that idea.
  • Being able to record live interviews locally to my computer would be nice.
  • Also, it would be good if we could download a copy of our interviews.
It's really good if you need to call a lot of candidates in the process of hiring for a position. One of the main challenges in phone calls is you might end up calling candidates while they are at work and of course they can't do a phone interview at their workplace. This skirts that very nicely. It's also pretty good if you want an alternative to Skype where you don't have to share an ID with a candidate for more privacy.

We use this for both live video calls and one-sided video interviews. For live video calls its really nice since the people that we are inviting to the video calls do not need to install any software or sign up for an account. They just get an email with the date and time and a link where they can join. It works right out of the browser. We also use this for one-sided video interviews and tests. It's really easy to set up a 10-15 minute interview with questions that the user has to record a video answer to and then we get the videos they record to review.

Its helped us in multiple ways. Video calls let us get around problems we had with trying to get the candidates to come in person for a chat if they lived out of state. Having one-sided video interviews let us screen candidates better. Its easier to find a more suited candidate if you can watch a video of them and then move them forward with the process rather than relying on just a resume or a phone call.
  • Needs no additional items to install. Works right out of the browser.
  • Candidates don't have to sign up for an account to use it.
  • It's really well priced.
  • Can share videos with whoever you want to.
  • Nice scheduling features.
  • Can add other people from your team as user seats. Nice to be able to have everyone work on it.
  • We had some issues getting it to work on mobile.
It's really well suited if you hire candidates or talk to applicants that might not be available due to geographic or time constraints. Also nice to have if you have a big team since they let you add as many users as you want.

We hire a lot of people on a temp basis. And one of the biggest problems we were having were getting hold of people at the right time. So we started looking at video interviews to get around it. We found Jobma and we have been using it every since. We usually send a bunch of questions to people we are looking to hire and watch the videos that come in. Then we decide who to bring to for a face to face meeting. This frees up a bunch of our time on the phone and since this is a small business any time we shave off the phone can be used in other more productive places.
  • Video interviews are really easy to set up and send to people.
  • The people that did the interviews for us told us that they really liked how easy it was. They dont have to sign up or download anything. It just works directly.
  • Its really really cheap. Compared to the other options we were looking at this is far and away the cheapest option.
  • They have phone and chat support for people that are doing the interview too.
  • Doing a live video call is really finicky. I should be able to just click and send a link to someone.
If you have never done video interviews for hiring before this is a really good tool to get into it. There is no upfront commitment and you can start small and then scale up if needed or drop out if not. This is mostly because the pricing is a pay as you go model so you only pay for whatever you use. That gives you a lot of flexibility since you aren't tied to a big contract up front.

We use this to improve our screening process. Usually we call people to talk to them about the position and their qualifications. Using Jobma we were able to add a video part to that process. That let us get a better look at candidates. It also was useful in cases where we had a hard time getting hold of someone on the phone because of timing issues.
  • Their video interviews are really easy to set up. You can create an interview in minutes.
  • You can bulk invite people to video interviews. So you can send out 20 invitations at once saving a ton of time.
  • You get notifications whenever someone completes a video interview.
  • Sharing the video recording is a great feature.
  • I would like to see better tracking of my invites to find out if someone has read the email or not.
  • More personlization options on the interview page would be nice as well.
It's really good if you are having problems with scheduling calls with people you are looking to hire. This means they can do the interview whenever they are free, which is often out of business hours. It's also nice if you want to involve more people from your side early on into the hiring process, as they can see the candidates right from the get go.

Our HR team had difficulty getting potential candidates on the phone often due to scheduling issues. The other problem we faced was that too much time was being spent on the phone talking to candidates when we did get hold of them. So we tried out one way video interviews using Jobma and it worked out brilliantly. Our HR would just send the 3-4 questions they were asking the candidates on the phone via a Jobma interview and the candidates recorded a video of themselves whenever they had some free time. This also freed the time from our HR team.

Plus it let us coordinate better internally. Now we could get the input from operations managers and Team leads on a candidate before we brought them into the office for a face to face.
  • It does one way video interviews really perfectly. No fluff. Super easy to set up and deploy. And its a breeze to share the videos internally and get documented feedback. Just really nice, simple and clean.
  • Their support was fantastic. Chat support was great because it ensured that candidates didn't have to call us for issues they might have run into and instead could just ping Jobma on the chat.
  • Works on mobile devices. Which was a big deal to us since the candidates we spoke to before we moved to video interviewing often told us they didnt have a laptop or a PC with a webcam. But everyone has a smartphone.
  • The pricing is really fantastic. It was the best option by some distance compared to other vendors that we spoke with.
  • It's super reliable. I dont think we had a single outage related issue in all the time we used it.
  • I feel like their live video interview should be easier to set up. Right now it takes a few clicks to get it set up. There should just be an option to immediately do a live interview without the scheduling bit.
  • We would like to be able to download our video interviews but I am told that is a GDPR/compliance thing they cannot do.
Its really great if you do a lot of phone screening for the job positions that you hire. It automated almost all of the phone screening my HR team did. Its also really good for hiring candidates whose availability (either due to time or location) for an interview is kinda wonky.

We used Jobma to screen candidates. Initially we had issues getting hold of candidates for phone screening. In addition to that we also had some issues with "fake" candidates making it through part of the interview process. So we started using this to start screening candidates and augment our current phone screening process. Plus having the candidates on video ensured that we were getting what we were seeing.
  • It works on mobile devices. A lot of our candidates didnt have a laptop or a PC with a webcam and it working on mobile devices made them comfortable.
  • The chat support is fantastic. If our candidates had some questions they pinged Jobma's chat support team for help.
  • We were able to share videos with people inside (and a few times) outside the company. Having more input on candidates let us have more accountability in the process.
  • It didn't need any additional things to be installed. Just worked right through the browser.
  • Pricing was phenomenal.
  • I feel like they could offer some more options when it comes to interviewing. Adding audio questions would be great.
Jobma is great if you want to augment your phone screening process. Also a great tool if you want your hiring team to work together with Operations people. Also super useful if you are hiring for positions where you need skills that can be displayed well in a video/in person. We used this to hire for our Tech and customer service positions and it just did an amazing job.
