I use Modern Hire to prescreen candidates and to schedule interviews for candidates and hiring leaders. I use Modern Hire on at least 90% of all of my openings. Modern Hire has increased my efficiency in the prescreening phase of the recruiting process. I am able to send out multiple text, voice, or video screenings to candidates and the candidates can complete their screening when it's convenient for them. With text screenings, most are completed within minutes of being sent out. Scheduling interviews is so much easier with their Event Scheduling capabilities - no more phone tag with candidates to schedule an interview. Candidates get an email or text with available dates for an interview and they self-schedule.
  • Prescreening - On-demand text, voice and video screening
  • Scheduling Interviews
  • Ability to review multiple screening at the same time
  • Exporting screening data to Excel
I've been a recruiter for more than 20 years, and I simply can't imagine working without Modern Hire at this point. Modern Hire has greatly increased my efficiency, leaving me more time to build relationships with candidates and hiring leaders. I can focus more on the consultative part of my position as opposed to spending time on administrative functions that Modern Hire easily handles.
Whenever I have a Modern Hire issue, the customer success team is always very helpful and is usually able to resolve my issue quickly.

Modern Hire is a technological-based hiring and recruitment application, which evaluates all the strengths and the shortcomings of the candidates in a business before employment. Through the predictive analysis, Modern Hire forecasts the performance of every individual, giving the company a chance to prepare and plan. Besides, Modern Hire includes live interviews, which capture the requirements of the candidates and their possibilities of working with the company.
  • The existence of on demand and live interviews makes Modern Hire perfect.
  • The integration with the IT tools, more so for analytics and practical forecast.
  • Strict, fair, and friendly performance evaluating strategies.
  • The customization of Modern Hire is minimal, hence, more challenging.
  • The cost of Modern Hire is outrageous.
  • Other recruitment and hiring options are credible.
Modern Hire controls the candidates that a business require in terms of their integrity, skills, and knowledge. Further, Modern Hire generates technological analytical possibilities, which increases the forecasting methods and results. Again, the remuneration of every individual is based on analytical performance, hence, there is justice and fairness. Lastly, the candidates acquire a preview of the job they might do, which is an influential factor.

A year back I have started working as a Human resource supervisor and the day I took charge of the office I implemented Modern Hire to make things easy in our HR department. we can schedule and manage interviews of the candidates and we can add media as well and we can engage our candidates in the process and this software has resulted in increasing our efficiency of the recruitment process.
  • We can see the number of candidates at each level of our recruitment process.
  • It is a time saver and has transformed our recruitment process.
  • Scheduling interviews is easy and candidates can choose time slots according to our availability calendar and help candidates self-schedule.
  • The interface is up to the mark.
  • Video interviewing is quite an efficient way of the recruitment process.
  • The outgoing templates offer very little customization which is its downside.
  • The confirmation emails need improvement in the first place.
  • Outrageous cost.
This tool is a great add-in to the HR department of the company. Video interviewing is not so common in small organizations and this is the reason why I think that it is not so suitable for small companies as this advanced way is more common among large firms and it is a great interview conducting source with many features including self-scheduling.

Modern Hire is currently being used to host interviews at Spectrum for both internal and external candidates. It is used currently in the marketing department but I believe that other departments are using it as well. Since it is an external platform it allows internal or external candidates to use the platform easily and we can assign anyone to interview by inputting their current email address.
  • Simple to enter meeting
  • Different ways to connect audio functions via phone or computer
  • Video is already connected
  • User friendly
  • Time out issues
  • Computer audio is not always ideal
  • Video quality is not always ideal, but could be webcam issue
It is simple to use for both internal or external candidates and does not need to download an app is appreciated!

Caravan Health introduced the use of Modern Hire [formerly Montage] (video interview technology) enterprise-wide in 2017. As a rapidly-growing start-up in the population health management space, we routinely had several departments with multiple positions open at the same time... creating a bottleneck both within HR/Talent Acquisition in completing initial phone screens with prospective candidates who appeared to be meet minimum qualifications at least by the resume & application submitted, and then within the hiring departments as the managers struggled to continue to meet routine business needs while also finding the time during "regular business hours" to then follow-up on those candidates forwarded to them by Talent Acquisition. Turnaround time was an issue, and we started to see a drop-off with very strong and highly-qualified talent as great candidates would receive final offers from competitors or others sometimes weeks before we could get to the final interview stage of the process. Modern Hire [formerly Montage] has helped to streamline the entire process dramatically, allowing both HR/Talent Acquisition and hiring managers to leverage the use of both recorded, introductory video and live video interviews to cut our average time-to-fill by nearly half. At the same time, we are able to effectively interview more candidates while cutting recruiting travel costs.
  • Allows prospective candidates to prepare for and submit recorded responses to established interview questions when it is most-convenient for their schedule (without having to take time off fro their current job, skip lunch, etc.).
  • Modern Hire [formerly Montage] offers the ability to conduct both recorded and live video interviewing, allowing the flexibility to adopt whatever approach best fits the culture of the organization, the specific role, etc. We are finding that recorded interviews are terrific for initial or screening, and are great to then share with a hiring manager if there needs to be any calibration between s/he & HR/Talent Acquisition. The live interviews allow us to conduct interviews with candidates who may be applying from outside reasonable driving distance to the nearest Caravan Health office, while still providing an ability to observe important nonverbal cues of candidates.
  • Customer support is strong, even offering a "concierge service" which is basically like having an extension of our IT department on the line/logged-in with us to ensure there are no technical issues during the interview.
  • While we are a fan of the concierge service, there have been a time or two where we have scheduled for it but the Modern Hire [formerly Montage] partner didn't log-in/dial-in in a timely manner and we were left trying to address technical issues outside our comfort zone.
  • The Modern Hire [formerly Montage] platform is solid, without question. That said, there are pieces of the interface for both the prospective candidate and the hiring manager which could be made far-more intuitive than they exist today. We all know that in hard-to-fill roles across the nation today, there are more opportunities than there are great candidates with which to fill them... so we need to do all we possibly can to make the candidate experience as simple, quick and painless as possible.
  • It would be great if the Modern Hire [formerly Montage] platform could easily interface with our ATS.
While video interviewing is still considered too "unconventional" by too many small business HR people I visit with, the ROI can easily be found within 4-6 months (if the company is having to fly more than 3 or 4 candidates in for interviews)... so I would argue that Modern Hire [formerly Montage] is well-suited for organizations of all sizes. For best success, though, I would make sure that any HR leader seeking to implement spend the time to educate your leadership team on how the technology works and why it is a worthwhile investment (especially underscoring the risk mitigation provided against alot of frivolous EEOC claims, as the interviews are recorded and the records are yours to keep... meaning you have Exhibit A to share should you ever receive a Charge Notice, which demonstrates exactly what was asked by the employer and how the candidate responded).

Modern Hire [formerly Montage] is used regularly for candidate interviews. It allows us to keep the process moving and control travel spend. They provide very good technical and customer service support.
  • Modern Hire [formerly Montage] is easy to use. Scheduling is intuitive.
  • It sends invitations with links directly to attendees Calendars...which streamlines the meeting scheduling process.
  • Technically easy to use and informative for all users.
  • Would like to see the Concierge service available for all calls. As a scheduler, would like to know my users are "in good hands."
I have recommended Modern Hire [formerly Montage]. Its ease of use for all attendees makes it a great interviewing resource.
