Q&A with HR Talent Coordinator, Virginie:
What inspired you to look into video interviewing?
My manager suggested we use video interviewing to save our time in recruitment process.
Did Spark Hire replace a similar tool or is this the first time your team is using video interviewing?
Spark Hire was our first experience using video interviewing.
What criteria did you have in mind for a video interviewing solution?
We wanted a tool that was simple and intuitive to use. It should be not too expensive and integrated with our ATS, Workable.
Describe your selection process and what you found most attractive about Spark Hire when signing up.
We reviewed Workable’s integrations with video interviewing platforms and requested a demonstration of Spark Hire. We found the platform easy to use and liked the integration with Workable. At that point, we were sold!
What was getting started with Spark Hire like?
The integration required some assistance from Workable and Spark Hire but once the integration was live, setting up our interviews was easy.
What are some of the results you’ve seen with Spark Hire?
We created a stage in Workable for the Spark Hire video interview. When we select candidates to complete a video interview, we move them to this stage. The video interview allows our candidates to answer our questions on their own time and our team to review them easily.
What was your team’s hiring process prior to using Spark Hire?
It used to begin with reviewing applications with written questions candidates responded to, then a Skype call, and finally an onsite interview.
How does video interviewing fit into your hiring process?
It works well. With Spark Hire, our process depends on what the hiring teams decides to do. In the last recruitment we did, the process was: review applications with questions candidates responded to in writing, a Spark Hire one-way video interview, and then an onsite interview. Spark Hire enables the hiring team to filter and avoid having too many candidates invited for final round interviews.
What is the biggest impact that video interviewing has on your hiring process?
Spark Hire saves us tons of time!
What was your aha moment – the moment you knew you loved Spark Hire?
We quickly identified how simple a tool Spark Hire is. Once the integration was live and we interacted with our account manager, Spark Hire became invaluable to us.
What are three words that describe your experience working with Spark Hire?
Our experience with Spark Hire is always pleasant, simple, and professional.
