The Harper Creek human resources team wanted to use one-way video interviews to allow their top candidates to more accurately demonstrate their abilities earlier in the process. They also wanted to improve the quality of their in-person interviews by sharing screening interviews with principals. Last, the team hoped video interviews would allow their hiring process to be more accessible to candidates, no matter their location.
There are times when what you read on a resume does not match what you see and hear from the applicant in-person. Video Interviews would help us see the person in a different light before bringing in for a face-to-face interview.
This is the first time we've used a video interviewing tool.
I heard about video interviewing at a conference. It wasn't a tool I'd considered before. Upon learning what it could do for our hiring process, I was interested.
The customer service is outstanding.
It was great. The fact that I have a Customer Success Manager says it all. Spark Hire truly wants us to be successful in our search for staff.
We have decreased our timeline to hire. We no longer feel like we need to have a large number of interviewees to ensure we get the best team member. Spark Hire helps us narrow the applicants in a fair and legal way.
We would review resumes and applications to decide who gets, and does not get, an in-person interview.
One of the most effective selling points was the decrease in time spent to hire someone.
As we thought about budgets the year after we first used Spark Hire, ALL of our hiring supervisors asked if we were going to ensure we continued to use the platform for hiring.
This process gives districts a faster and more accurate glimpse into applicants' skills and abilities. Hearing straight from candidates through their one-way video interviews carries much more weight than our gut feeling about who we should interview.
