Goals for Video Interviewing

Q&A with Talent Acquisition Specialist, John Zeugschmidt

Q:

What challenges were you experiencing prior to using Spark Hire?

A:

The challenges that we had prior to Spark Hire were largely due to interviews taking so much of hiring managers’ time. And just kind of the frustration that comes along with that, decreased productivity, morale, and happiness around interviews.

Q:

How did Spark Hire help you overcome those challenges?

A:

Spark Hire helped us overcome those challenges by giving our hiring managers a group of video interviews to review on their own time, so it freed up their schedule. It also allowed us to put more people in front of the hiring managers so they could make those decisions. It wasn’t just HR making the pre-screening decisions. We can give them more people in a shorter amount of time, so they can really own the hiring process and make those decisions themselves.

Q:

What aspect of Spark Hire have you found to be the most valuable?

A:

The aspect of Spark Hire that’s been the most valuable to use is being able to have multiple stakeholders be able to view an interview as opposed to just who was available at the time. We can share that video interview internally, and good candidates are shared more frequently than those that aren’t. So it almost travels virally within our company when we find a good candidate.

Q:

Would you recommend Spark Hire to others?

A:

I would absolutely recommend Spark Hire to anybody that is in HR or does a significant amount of hiring. It’s going to increase your productivity. It’s one of those few tools that as an HR professional, that you can definitively show the ROI. So it’s an absolutely great tool that you can use to help make your organization more efficient and hire better people.

Q:

How long did it take you to get up and running with Spark Hire?

A:

A day or two, tops.

Q:

What’s it like doing business with Spark Hire?

A:

It’s been great! My Customer Success Hero is great. Every step of the process has been easy, and access to my rep for questions is great. But the tool itself is pretty intuitive, so we really haven’t needed much support.
