Christy Grimste

Simple solution for pre-recorded interviews

2015-07-07

Pros

It is very easy to use - both on the employer (interviewer) end and the employee (interviewee) end.

Cons

Even when you buy in bulk the interviews are very expensive.

Recommendations to others considering HireVue

If money is no object and you need to save manpower and need a pre-screening interview, then HireVue is good. Otherwise, you could save money by doing an in person interview on Skype yourself. You should know though, that HireVue should NOT be a final interview - you need the interaction of a "live" interview. HireVue doesn't simulate a live interview - just a live webcam recording of someone's face and answers.

We use HireVue for all our prescreening needs - both the Talent team and our hiring mangers.

2017-08-25

Pros

Ease of use, ability to customize prescreen template question by job title, ability to share videos with multiple stakeholders, Coordinate allows candidates to self-schedule interview dates and times so there is less administration for the Talent team.

Cons

Would like to see more robust analytics and reporting. Otherwise, there is very few 'cons' about this platform

Michael Reygaert

One of the best video interviewing providers on the market

2018-01-13

Pros

Additionally, the reporting capabilities of the platform is very in depth allowing you to really pull the key analytics you need for all of your departments and the positions they recruit for during the year.

Cons

If there is one downside to HireVue, it would be the cost of the system as it is on the higher end of what you will pay for a video interviewing provider. However, with HireVue you are also paying for a system capable of providing a lot of great features.

The bastion of Hirevue video interview app reviews: (almost) all you need to know before you use it

2019-06-06

For the purpose for which it is made, Hirevue is simply an excellent app for convenience during high volume recruitment. So, I encourage HR persons to have a pre-screening with Hirevue to get a fair idea of how well they fit into the shoes of your ideal candidate, after which, you should have a final face to face interview because judging a candidate from a motion picture may end up in your organization employing a clown, or a well-rehearsed impostor at best

Pros

Either party does not have to travel several kilometres for an interview, paying countless dollars in the process, especially when you are not sure of getting the job at the end of it all (no one wants to waste a buck these days).

Cons

This will greatly help with self-assessment, in a bid to improving subsequent video interview performance.

Tyrus Borck

Digital interviewing platform with outstanding support

2017-08-24

HireVue allows our global teams to standardize our interview process for a consistent candidate experience.

Pros

The support offered by HireVue is amazing. They are always willing to help with technical issues (24/7 support for candidates, interviewers, etc) and business issues as well with a dedicated support contact. The tool offers flexibility with both On Demand and Live interviews which is helpful for various types of positions (university, entry level, executive, mid-career, etc).

Cons

There is room for improvement with the Taleo integration. It would be nice to have more options and visibility directly in Taleo to make the process easier for recruiters/interview coordinators; this would make adoption of the tool easier as well.

HireVue Coach - Great Platform for Video Sales Coaching

2018-03-17

We need to create stickiness with our sales training. Sales reps forget almost everything that we train them on and they need a way to practice that doesn't feel like roleplaying in front of the whole sales team.

Pros

I can finally measure and track behavioral change of my sellers and their ability to articulate the right messaging.

Cons

Progress on new feature releases has been a little slow.

Greatest revolution in HR since the resume

2017-08-08

Time saved on interviews.

Pros

The ability to have candidates submit video reviews is absolutely incredible. What a timesaver to be able to pre-screen and rate candidates before they walk through your doors.

Cons

I'm not sure if there is a best practice manual for users and applicants but that would helptremendously.

Flight Attendant video Interview Delta

2019-10-24

I had to do my video Interview with Delta again do to tech difficulties because the software didn't go well with my phone.

Pros

Customer service is great for helping with tech difficulties.

Cons

I didn't like the fact it does work well on sure phones or microphones. The volume was up and down so I had to switch devices. Then if it's not the phone then it's microphone didn't work. The volume was not working well. You have to have good good light for camera to pick it up.

HireVue a great option for video interviewing

2018-12-18

For video interviewing, this is a great product and they are working on more analytics. However, I think there could be more training for the candidates to make it a better experience for them.Although video interviewing can seem impersonal, HireVue makes the process simple and efficient.

Pros

The HireVue platform is easy to access not only for recruiters, but also hiring managers and candidates.

Cons

The note taking on the platform is confusing for reviewers. I would like to see the notes not only being more accessible to reviewers, but also editable to HR.

Great Candidate Screener

2019-08-24

Our company employs field sales representatives and due to our sales metrics and performance standards, turnover can sometimes be frequent.

Pros

I like the ability of this software to access and screen out potential candidates for employment purposes. It has truly streamlined my company's employment process with great efficiency.

Cons

I truly have not experienced any negativity with association from this wonderful software, which has enhanced our hiring productivity significantly.

HireVue

2019-01-22

It's good for those who prefer to interview at home, though it would be great if you could redo questions (not sure if the employer decides this or the app).

Pros

It also allows you to practice before you take the real interview which was very helpful and some of the same questions came up!

Cons

Can be nerve-racking and also the time given to answer questions is typically so short!

Use HireVue for OnDemand Interviews, CodeVue assessments, and Live Digital Interviews

2017-08-24

Speeds up the interview process. Allows you to share candidate interview with different hiring managers in the organization. Let's you talk with out-of-town candidates face-to-face without having to fly them in for the interview.

Pros

I like HireVue's ability to create OnDemand Interviews that lets candidates interview on their time and in the comfort of their own home, or on the go (apps).

Cons

Most of the time it is the users computer settings that aren't set up properly.
