Q&A with Division Manager, Lori Gelhaar
What inspired you to look into video interviewing?
We wanted to be unique in the industry.
What were you looking for in a video interviewing platform?
This was our first time looking into video interviews and a big priority for us was for the platform to be user friendly. We ended up choosing Spark Hire because it seemed easy, convenient, and cost effective.
What was your team’s recruiting process prior to using Spark Hire?
Before implementing video interviewing, our multi-step process involved phone and face-to-face interviews with our team and our clients.
How does video interviewing fit into your recruiting process?
We customize the video interviews based on our clients’ needs. When we have candidates to present to clients, we share their completed video interviews. This helps our clients better screen the candidates and make decisions about who they are interested in. We also use it to create introduction interviews for our staff and candidates that have difficult schedules or live out of town.
