Overall Satisfaction with HireVue

HireVue is being used across the Boston Beer organization. I work in Recruiting and we mainly use it as a one-way screening tool. We believe the tool gives candidates a way to learn more about us and for us to learn more about them. HireVue helps us save time in the long run. We then pass HireVues on to other members of the organization if we believe a candidate is worth moving forward with.
  • HireVue gives the option of uploading company videos. These videos can teach candidates about the company and excite them.
  • HireVue's rating system allows for people to take notes, rate each question, and ultimately give a yes, no, maybe recommendation.
  • That you can base new interviews off of previous positions or templates, but also edit individual aspects of each interview. This makes it quick and easy to set up new interviews.
  • i don't like that only administrators can see notes on candidates. There should be an option for anyone a HireVue is shared with to view notes.
  • I don't like that HireVues expire after one year. It would be helpful to have them available for longer than that so when someone applies multiple times for a position we have a refresher as to why we didn't hire them in the first place.
  • I think more practice for end users could be valuable. A lot of candidates report feeling uncomfortable with the software. They would probably feel better if they had more practice.
  • Saves time when recruiting candidates.
  • In the long run saves money interviewing, hiring and on boarding an employee.
I have never used any other one-way products, so I can't compare. We also don't use HireVue for live interviewing purposes only for one-way interviewing. I would be interested in seeing how one-way interviewing compares to live interviewing. In addition, how HireVue compares to Skype. I find HireVue to be an easier tool to use when setting up an interview with candidates compared to Skype.
HireVue is appropriate for college recruiting or when hiring mass amounts of people entry-level people. HireVue is a good tool for initial screening or weeding out of candidates. For a position that is harder to fill or more difficult to recruit for, a phone or in-person interview may be better. In addition, HireVue is probably more suited for Millennials or below. People who are comfortable and familiar with daily use of technology will probably feel better using this software.
