Overall Satisfaction with VidCruiter
I recorded interview responses for the initial screening "interview" and received a performance task & attempted to submit it.
- Great support
- Clean design
- Humanizing the experience for applicants
- Give more information about how the video will be used
- Clarity on deadlines for performance task
- The error message is vague ("Either you have withdrawn from this process or the deadline to complete this process has been reached") which one? You should know!
- Respect for both the candidate along with the HR
- Clear information about how video recordings will be used
- Great support

In my opinion, it is WELL-SUITED for companies with a priority focused on efficiencies, and you don't mind that candidate only interacts with bots. I feel it is LESS APPROPRIATE for hiring highly skilled workers who are also doing their own evaluation during the candidate review process about how valued they will be as employees. EXPLANATION: I was a candidate user, so my experience depends on the setup by the company that I applied. This "interview" experience is unique because, by default at least, there is no feedback about how my responses are received. In my case, the only "feedback" I received was a week later when I got an automated request to complete of a performance task. The task said I had 5 days to complete and it was an intensive task. There was not a specific due date/time shown. (Is it precisely five 24-hours days from receiving the initial email, from when I clicked, or when set up?). I did receive a separate brief email communication with a specific date, but no time zone was given. So after 5 evenings of working on it in separate programs to create the pdf, I went back to the site to submit it and got this error message: "You no longer have access to this page. Either you have withdrawn from this process or the deadline to complete this process has been reached." Shouldn't the program know that I hadn't withdrawn and when the deadline was? It was such a terrible experience to me that it has completely changed my perspective on the company I applied to.
