Overall Satisfaction with HireVue
HireVue is used across most of our organization and it serves the purpose of filtering out employees that we would consider for the interviewing process. It's a very useful tool to help narrow down our search and save time in the interviewing process. It has helped us to become more in tune with the interviewee before bringing them in for an official interview. One of the downsides to this, is that on occasion there are individuals that do much better with real life interaction, so I wonder if HireVue filters out some good candidates. However, the benefits definitely outweigh the negatives. I've had a good overall experience with the product.
- Filters out candidates that have done well on the resume but aren't a good fit for the job.
- Organizes and keeps record of those we've interviewed already so it's easy to remember who we've already considered.
- Allows us to develop our own questions and video responses which can be quickly viewed from my office at work or at home.
- Sometimes videos come through that don't have audio or something is messed up on the video. It would be nice if the system would detect this and let the user know before completing. (Maybe it already does and the user is lacking?).
- Don't show all the user ratings on an individual until you have given a rating. I think sometimes we are swayed by how our peers review someone. I think it would be helpful to not see any of this feedback until the reviews have been completed. So showing the rating and comments after all reviewers have had the chance to complete the review.
- Faster completion of the overall process.
- If we have to select an employee quickly (sometimes we may lose positions if not selected fast enough) then HireVue helps us to be confident in our selections.
- We are able to go back to previous applicants and review again if necessary. So the library of applicants is helpful.
HireVue is well suited when you are trying to select from a bunch of individuals in the hiring process. I probably wouldn't care to use this if there were only a few applicants. It is very helpful when you need to weed through a lot of people quickly. I would not use this as the sole means in the selection process.
