Overall Satisfaction with Spark Hire

We currently use Spark Hire for a couple of different things. At the moment, we're using it for one-way interviews with candidates. We have candidates complete the one-way interviews if they're lacking in the experience that we typically require, but want to give them a shot to see if they'd be worth interviewing further. Having them complete the one-way interview also shows if they're capable of following through with a task. We also use the self-scheduling feature for scheduling interviews. This has helped us tremendously with cutting down the time it takes to schedule an initial phone interview and eliminating the back and forth with candidates.
  • One-way interviewing to check the quality of a candidate.
  • Self-scheduling feature for interviews.
  • Ability to create different email templates.
  • Ability to customize self-scheduling feature.
  • Integration with other products.
  • Efficiency with scheduling interviews through self-scheduling feature.
  • Screening candidates through one-way interview.
  • There is sometimes confusion for candidates with self-scheduling feature.
SmartRecruiters also has a self-scheduling feature for interviews that we got some exposure to. Spark Hire you're able to customize more of your options with the type of interview and also customizing the length of the interview.
I have not used the support that much with Spark Hire but it seems that there are a lot of features available for support and different resources that are provided on Spark Hire's website. For the most part, the system is very user-friendly and it's easy to navigate and figure out things on your own.

Spark Hire has been amazing for the self-scheduling feature with candidates. We integrated with our Google calendars so candidates are able to view our availability and schedule a phone interview with us. It has helped save so much time and eliminate a lot of the back and forth with candidates. We use the one-way interview feature occasionally to help us screen candidates and it would be great if you're interviewing several candidates in bulk to help cut downtime and narrow down candidates faster.
