    Pros
    What is great about using Spark Hire is that it is so seamless and easy to use. You can jump in and review 15 candidates in less than 30 minutes and get a feel for how these people communicate.
    The support team is very responsive and helpful, and my account rep is fantastic.
    The video quality was very good, as is the candidate interface, and their customer service was attentive.
    Cons
    The main negative I have with this is that it takes the personal interaction out of the initial interview process.
    The quality of the sound can get choppy at times which can be irritating if you’re in a middle of obtaining an answer from the applicant and she needs to repeat herself.
    Sometimes does't work with flash player, especially on Macs. At times it is hard for candidates to submit their videos due to this issue.

    Time Saving Tool

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    The results are usually good and usable, sometimes there is some compatibility issues but it is usually due to wifi issues.

    Pros

    We are able to do candidate evaluations at the beginning of the recruitment process to weed out unqualified candidates and identify highly regarded talent. This saves our client's time in the process by using the SparkHire videos as a first interview to view when they have time in their day.

    Cons

    I wish we could edit more to delete wifi glitches or shorten if needed.

    Vendor response

    Hi Kim, Thank you for sharing your experience using Spark Hire! We are so happy to hear that our candidate evaluations feature has been helpful in saving your clients' time! We appreciate hearing from you!

    Not the traditional way to interview in public schools

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    There was a period of time when our clients were not receiving the interviews or notifications from the Spark Hire app. Our representative was very cooperative and his response times were always within a 24 hour period. He returned all of my calls and even talked to our IT people here to troubleshoot the problem. My overall experience with Spark Hire has been a wonderful experience from the beginning. We were put in a very difficult situation with the pandemic first emerged and they helped us address a huge need in our industry.

    Pros

    The most important part of the addition of Spark Hire to our organization is that it has given us the flexibility to offer applicants an opportunity to complete a quality interview experience during a very difficult period of time. We were able to provide our principals with an opportunity to review countless interviews in a very short period of time.

    Cons

    There was only one hiccup with the software, but that was corrected with a few phone calls and collaboration between Spark Hire's Helpdesk and our IT department.

    Vendor response

    Hi Brian, We appreciate your wonderful review about your experience using Spark Hire's video interviewing! We are happy to hear that our platform has been helpful in connecting you with candidates while in-person interviews haven't been an option. Happy hiring!

    Great tool , definitely a bog help!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Great!

    Pros

    I looove that it saves tons of my tie and actually shows me how interested the candidate is in the position. I can use tags and rating for my candidates nd filter them however I want. Always easy to come back and revisit some answers or refresh my memory about some candidates. Tech support is always responsive!

    Cons

    Sometimes the sftware has bugs (if the candidate has some wrong version of PC or other computer issues), but ostly it's working great1

    Spark Hire review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Time saved and more applicants screed. Our service delivery to has been massively improved.

    Pros

    I love that this has become an essential part of our screening process, it eliminates the time spent conducting face to face interviews with candidates that are not suitable for certain roles, thus saving us time. It also speeds up the time in getting candidates in front of the hiring manager. The video is a great selling tool for us internally.

    Cons

    I wish that there was an avatar, this is the only thing similar providers have that Spark doesn't offer.

    Vendor response

    Hi Monica, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are so happy to hear that our platform has helped save you time and that video interviews have become such an integral part of your screening process. Thank you again for sharing your experience using Spark Hire!

    Spark Hire-A Valuable Screening Tool

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I love Spark Hire and would recommend it to anyone. Their tech teams are spot-on in responding to issues with candidates, alleviating the pressure for our team to have to respond and know all the answers to the items that may come up from a candidate side.

    Pros

    I love that Spark Hire puts all candidates on the same playing field for an initial interview. The candidates don't have the verbal/non-verbal feedback of Zoom/phone/in-person, so the interview is much more structured than our other options later in the process.

    Cons

    As stated previously, some of the searching for previous candidates/interviews has become more cumbersome.
