Overall Satisfaction with Spark Hire

Our entire organization, roughly 150 people, uses Spark Hire during our Recruitment season. Our application is open to college seniors who meet specific criteria, from there we have nearly ~1000k applicants to go through. We use Spark Hire as the first round of interviews and have all candidates answer the same questions. Then our team reviews the video answers to rank and find the best candidates! Overall, it has streamlined the recruitment process making the first round of interviews quick and convenient for all parties!
  • The user interface is clear and concise and not distracting. This is a pro because it allows you to focus on the interviewee and what they are saying.
  • It is easy to access interviews, watch, rewatch, etc. The entire process is just so convenient.
  • I don't specifically remember but would love to have a captions feature! Or something about translations to make it more inclusive.
  • The back library to access videos is a bit clunky and disorganized.
  • I like how technical issues are automatically handled by Spark Hire rather than my team having to worry about them.
  • I like the ability to add a personalized intro and outro and then use a mass video in the middle.
  • I like the tracking / reporting that comes with the platform.
  • Increased efficiency, saved us time, and energy.
  • We were able to recruit more students because we knew the spark hire process would be easier to navigate!
This was my first time using any sort of video interview platform. It was a great first experience!

It is great for first round interviews, or if you have a ton of candidates that need to be narrowed down quickly. However it is not great further along in the interview process as it lacks that personalized touch and the conversation is one sided. But overall, for the initial beginning stages of an intense recruiting process, it is a great way to learn more about candidates apart from just their resume.
