Daily User - Very user friendly

2019-05-31

When RIVS sends out reminders for an applicant that has not scheduled it saves the user time and the need to follow-up with the applicant.

Pros

I also think it is great that RIVS sends out reminders to the applicants when there is a delay in scheduling.

Cons

The calendar needs to be refreshed often to show real-time scheduling.

Excellent Product

2019-06-26

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

Pros

This product revolutionized the way we screen potential applicants for the organization.

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.

RIVS adds a lot of value to our process!

2019-08-22

Pros

RIVS is completely customizable to both our industry and sending it to each individual.

Cons

The down side is when the video and sound don't match. There tends to be a lag at times, so you have to make sure you are using the right browser before using the video part.

Great Time Saver!

2019-06-26

Overall, RIVS has been great in saving us time and allowing us to act quickly.

Pros

RIVS helps us save so much time with screening applicants and reviewing audio or video interviews.

Cons

My least favourite thing would be the layout of the dashboard; I think more could be done to better organize it and make it look more user friendly.

Time Saver with Some Good Features

2019-06-27

I appreciate that the applicant and interviewer can conduct one-way interview at their own schedule and pace.

Pros

You can rate the responses as you listen, later sorting the applicants by the rating scale to indicate the applicants with the strongest responses.

Cons

Recent use of the e-mail invitations with fields have resulted in invitations being sent to applicants with the wrong position or campus identified.

Recommendations to others considering RIVS Digital Interviews

Do not let initial hesitations and concerns about discrimination risk prevent you from learning more about video interviewing. I'm convinced that video interviewing actually REDUCES the risk of employment discrimination. Why? All candidates for a job are asked the exact same questions. Hiring managers know their images and questions are recorded so video interviewing serves as a deterrent to hiring discrimination. No side comments or off-the-cuff remarks can be made by hiring agents (the types of comments that can get an employer in trouble). All candidates are provided the same amount of time to respond to questions. Candidate responses are scored independently by multiple administrators. In addition, studies have shown that minority candidates prefer video interviewing because it allows more personal, frank responses.

Digital Interviewing

2019-05-31

Getting a better feel of applicants before calling them in for an interview

Pros

I like how you can pre-screen applicants and learn more about them ahead of time

Cons

The thing that I like least is from the opposite perspective. I feel that for some people, they do not interview well digitally but better in person so may give off the wrong impression.

RIVS has transformed the way we interview

2019-06-26

We have used this software to prescreen applicants from around the globe including South Korea, Vietnam,Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, England, Trinidad, etc.

Pros

The ease of creating on-line video interviews for applicant pre-screening.

Cons

Occasionally internet connection not always the best, most often in remote areas of Canada - this is not the fault of RIVS but of patchy internet connections in Canada's north.
