Overall Satisfaction with HireVue

We are currently using HireVue to do our panel interviews with potential new hires. Our normal attendance is 3 employees and 1 interviewee. HireVue is the only tool that our company uses for technical interviews.

The problems that HireVue addresses for us are:

  • Multiple people on a single interview
  • Attaching the candidate's coding submission to the interview
  • Recording the interview for later review
  • Attaching any notes and/or recommendations made by the technical panel to the interview and 5) A white board that allows for live coding.
  • Displaying a standard set of questions for the interview panel to ask the candidate along with the ability to rate the candidate's response and make notes about their response.
  • Having a white board built into the application makes it much easier to have the candidate do some live coding and discuss their thought process without having to open a second application.
  • The ability to have the interview panel make their notes and potentially hiring decision from the app and save those notes to that one interview.
  • Attaching the candidate's submission materials, like coding sample and resume, to the interview.
  • Recording the interview for later playback with all candidate submission and panel notes attached.
  • I've experienced problems with HireVue just dropping in the middle of an interview and I've had to stop and restart the interview. I believe this reflects poorly on us and makes us look bad.
  • The white board is a very nice feature, but I'd also like the ability to share a screen (If this feature exists I haven't found it yet).
  • I can't say for certain what business objectives HireVue meets.
The biggest issue we had with GoToMeeting was that it wasn't designed for interviews. It lacks nice interview features, like a white board, and having a standard set of questions ready, panel notes etc.
I find that the most useful feature is the ability to attach the candidate's files, coding sample, resume, etc., along with any answers to questions asked by the interview panel, panel member notes, and potentially a hiring decision to the recording for later review. The white board feature is also useful with its ability to select which language is being used.
