Overall Satisfaction with Jobma

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.
  • We were able to screen candidates faster.
  • Candidates loved this process too.
Skype doesn't have one-sided video interviews, that was the main reason we preferred Jobma over it. It also required us to share our Skype id with any candidate we wanted to connect on a video call with. That was obviously an issue since we want only our side to be able to initiate a conversation with candidates.
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.
