interviewstream overview

What is interviewstream?

interviewstream is a digital interviewing platform that helps small to large recruitment teams reduce the time required to qualify and screen candidates. The solution helps recruiters, HR professionals and managers through the recruitment and hiring process using the platform’s customizable, online interviewing features and automated interview scheduling.

interviewstream's pre-recorded, one-way interviews enable recruiters to send applicants predetermined written, video or voice interview questions to be completed on their own time. Managers can review their responses as they arrive, in bulk, or at their own convenience. The platform comes with an optional text/video question bank, and enables users to upload portfolios, resumes, and more.

Live, two-way digital video interviews enable HR professionals to gauge a candidate's personality, attitude, and communication skills before coordinating an onsite meeting. Organizations can interview applicants 1-on-1 or panel style from any location, and on any mobile device. Two-way video features include a branded entrance page and videos, screen-sharing, recording and bookmarking, as well as access to portfolios, resumes and cover letters.

interviewstream's automated interview scheduling helps HR professionals, recruiters, and managers efficiently find mutual availability for all interviewing parties. Candidates can self-schedule their interviewing times, and managers can accept, decline and reschedule requests. Other scheduling features include automatic calendar reminders, and integrations with Outlook, Google Calendar, and iCalendar.

The rivs system is an excellent way to quickly make contact with candidates and learn about them without needing to pick up the phone.

Pros
My favorite thing about the rivs system is how user-friendly it is.

Cons
I wish we were able to better manipulate the content received - e.i remove specific questions if we don't want to our clients to see their responses.

RIVS: Helping School Districts to Hire Faster, Smarter and Cheaper!

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Software Advice

My school district reviewed several video interviewing platforms. We receive literally thousands of applications for teaching positions each year. Our dilemma was finding the best teachers possible without spending time, money and energy conducting thousands of face-to-face or telephone interviews. RIVS (Recorded Interview Video System) solved our problem via their one-way prerecorded video interviews. We love the various features and adaptability of the SaaS platform and all interviews are cloud-stored by RIVS! Now, instead of attending job fairs and interviewing only a handful of candidates who were brave enough to wait an hour in line, we collect email addresses and sent targeted interviews to every candidate who stops by our table. Those interviews are then shared with administrators across our school district. It's a win-win for our district and the job seekers. No more, "I waited in line for an hour and was asked two questions...are you kidding me?!"

The representatives at RIVS are incredibly responsive, I know they have many other clients, but they never make you feel that way. They ensure to follow up with any technical glitches that may occur and respond with fantastic updates. I almost, don't want other companies to know about this product because I know we have a competitive edge by streamlining calls and video conferencing!

Pros
Phone tag is the worst! With Rivs, you can eliminate the back and forth of phone tag. Simply send or email link and it's so easy for the person you are hoping to chat with get scheduled. Eliminate the need to go back and forth to coordinate schedules, this offers such a streamlined approach. I've been having great success with using it on LinkedIn within the messenger app as well to coordinate prospect calls.

Cons
Nothing, I honestly can't remember how it felt to not have RIVS, I'm able to really focus on the things that matter, getting quality talent to my clients that much faster!

I would recommend this product to all HR practitioners and recruiters.

Pros
This product revolutionized the way we screen potential applicants for the organization. By utilizing the digital interviewing platform, we are better able to identify top talent before bringing them in for an onsite interview. Feedback from our hiring managers has been phenomenal. The amount of time saved (which translates into a cost savings as well) by utilizing this product is insurmountable.

Cons
Our organization goes by different names in different parts of the country - it would be nice to be able to differentiate the names of the organization when sending introductory e-mails to applicants.
