“Spark Hire is a great tool for recruiters and provides our clients with another innovative way in which to carry out their recruitment. I have found the Spark Hire customer service to be very efficient.”
"Spark Hire has been an asset to our company. The platform helps us get a real feel for a potential new candidate. It also has helped our Regional Managers have the ability to view a candidate, and not necessarily have to travel to the candidate’s location. As the Recruiter, I have been very pleased with Spark Hire’s services and the user-friendly website."
AMS Retail Solutions
"Whenever we post job openings where we expect to get more than 50 responses, we encourage applicants to answer three simple questions: tell us about yourself, what are you best at, and why aren't you working at your prior jobs any more? The responses we get are SO much better than sifting through resumes and trying to extrapolate from a PDF to what an applicant is really like."
“For some of our roles, we receive several thousand resumes, so screening them all on the phone isn’t feasible. With Spark Hire, we can look at more candidates in less time to find diamonds in the rough. It is also great to be able to share the interviews and put a face and personality with a name before they even come through the door.”
Adcap Network Systems
"We have grown substantially since we’ve implemented Spark Hire. We are now billing 300% more than we were at this very time last year. Our submit to hire ratios have also improved. Before we started conducting video interviews, our submit to hire ratio was 3:1. This means, for every three candidate submissions we would have one hired. Now, for every two candidates submitted, one is hired. That’s fantastic in our industry."
Agility HR Group
"Using Spark Hire, we were able to take a 45 minute scheduled phone interview and replace it with a 15 minute one-way video interview. The videos are completed by the candidate in their free time, and then reviewed by the hiring team at their convenience. This change has saved us countless hours in the screening process, and also given us the insights to only focus our time on the best applicants."
All Web Leads
"Using Spark Hire, we have made over 1,500 candidate placements. Video interviewing, was integral to helping us improve our submit to hire ratio by 80% while also increasing our placement speed by 50%. We quickly noticed that we were not only placing candidates in a fraction of the time, but also that we were making more money on every candidate we placed. Because of the amount of time we are saving, we are now able to push resources to other areas of our business. This has helped make our business much more profitable."
The Altara Group
"With the help of Spark Hire, we’ve offered hundreds of applicants the ability to interview online. Most of our interviews are viewed by multiple viewers, sometimes by as many as 11 different people. Before we used Spark Hire, the scheduling, seat time and man hours away from campus would have cost the district upwards of 2,400 man hours with a cost of close to $103,000. Since using Spark Hire, the district estimates that it only spends 8 minutes per interview which has resulted in their man hours being cut to 270 hours or $12,000 which is a savings of $91,000 per year."
Amarillo Independent School District
"We very much enjoy using Spark Hire. It's easy to access and simple to use. The whole team is very helpful and attentive to our needs. Spark Hire helps us screen candidates more thoroughly without having to bring them into our office and we can even share the video with our client to save them time as well."
"It’s not a replacement for face to face. It’s about getting the right candidates into interviews with clients sooner. Spark Hire means we now spend most of our time with the right candidates."
"Shortlisting the hundreds of graduate applications we receive each year is always very labour intensive. With the goal of streamlining the process and reducing cost, we established an account with Spark Hire to implement one-way video interviews in lieu of those time consuming telephone screens. The product itself is very good and the service is exceptional."
BAE Systems Australia
"Spark Hire allows me to really see a candidates’ personality. I can see who is truly passionate, and really excited by the opportunity before we interview, saving considerable time for managers."
"Before we started using Spark Hire, the amount of time and energy it took for interviewing applicants, setting up interviews and conducting the actual interviews was massive. Sometimes that resulted in finding applicants and interviewing applicants that weren’t the best fit for our team. Since implementing Spark Hire, we have found it easier to hire candidates that better fit our company culture."
"We use Spark Hire at our North American and Canadian locations for Digital/IMT and Operational roles. There has been an overall reduction in time spent on the pre-screening process. With traditional interviewing, we would spend a minimum of 30 minutes screening each applicant. Using video interviewing, we have cut that screen time down to 6-7 minutes per candidate."
Barrick Gold Corporation
"We set out to recruit 130 new staff across all areas and levels. Spark Hire was extremely valuable for getting a feel for each applicant and their fit for our organisation, saving us many hours. It is now an invaluable tool in our business."
Berrington Care Group
"Spark Hire has totally transformed the way we screen and select candidates. This has reduced bias, reduced our time to hire, and the feedback from our candidates has been very positive."
"Once implementing Spark Hire, we experienced HUGE savings. The one thing we realized a year later is: the first people to do their video interviews are our most engaged and passionate employees. They love our company and you could see it from their first Spark Hire video interview."
"My team loves Spark Hire because of the flexibility of developing custom questions and question sets, reviewing candidate responses no matter their time or location, and ease of scheduling."
"Spark Hire was instrumental in me being able to quickly and efficiently hire an Executive Assistant. Given that we are a small firm, we don't have a full blown HR team, but Spark Hire allowed me to quickly narrow down 200 applicants to a shortlist of 8 candidates. We hired someone within a month and I never would have been able to do it as quickly without Spark Hire."
"Spark Hire has made our process much less stressful. We have to interview a lot of people (100 at a time) very quickly. Before we decided to start using video interviews, it simply took us too long to screen all of our candidates."
Camp Twitch and Shout
"Since we started using Spark Hire, the results have been amazing. If we have somebody who completes their online video application and the other processes the applicant has to go through, we are getting our preliminary interviews done in two to three days."
Canyon Independent School District
"By automating the screening process, we have saved about 8.33 hours per week. We have also found a candidate is 30% more likely to stay past 90 days if they complete a video interview as part of the hiring process."
Chick-fil-A Polaris Fashion Place
"As a company we position ourselves at the forefront of quality, service, and technology. Spark Hire fits perfectly with that. Other companies looking to improve their hiring efficiency and their candidates’ journey should look into video interviewing. From a selfish point of view - I'm happy for my competitors to continue to work with their old school ways! We stand out a mile!"
"With Spark Hire, we save an average of 20 minutes per applicant we process and we’ve processed hundreds of applicants using the system in less than a year. When you consider the cost of staff time, this is a huge money saver for our organization. In addition, we have been able to make better hiring decisions by not having to rely on interview notes, but having the actual interviews available to reference."
"Spark Hire has dynamically changed who we are and what we do by giving us more of a national presence. Using video interviews, I can put someone through my screening process and get a taste of what your personality is and who you are. It’s been beneficial to my company because we are no longer bound by a full one hour interview. It speeds up our placement process as we’re able to gather enough of a profile of our candidates for our clients. This leaves our clients wanting to learn more."
Connect Restaurant Services
"Having Spark Hire compliments our online application process and creates a consistent candidate experience. Applicants can interview anytime that is convenient for them, 24 hours a day, and our HR staff can watch the videos anytime as well. If something comes up and the HR staff is needed for another task, they can go back to the interviews when they have time."
Contemporary Services Corporation
“Spark Hire is great. Using it helped us find a fantastic new admin assistant. The interview process was fast and easy and really saved us time on countless in person interviews. My favorite part was that if we could see early on in the interview that the candidate wasn’t a good fit, we could simply skip to the next candidate instead of sitting through a full interview.”
Coordinated Project Installations, Inc.
"Using Spark Hire, we now have the ability to identify better quality candidates. We’ve never had a problem with the quantity of candidates, but we were struggling with selecting which candidates to advance in the process. Spark Hire allows us to interview more candidates and only bring the best candidates to the front."
Crawford Thomas Recruiting
"In our last two years of doing business with Spark Hire, our team has increased nearly 10 times over, and our screening process is now 10 times faster than before. What used to cost our team 40 hours per week now only takes 4. Our conversion rate has doubled, and we have saved thousands of dollars each year. Because of our growth, we’ve been able to nearly triple our gross annual revenue."
"Spark Hire saves us so much time. There is little time wasted on in-person interviews now, because we basically know who we are interviewing before they come in. Also, before Spark Hire, I was the sole decision maker on if I should hire a candidate or not. I was hiring for 18 different branches! Now, I send the interview to all 18 managers and they tell me who to bring in for an in person interview. Brilliant!"
Cyprus Credit Union
"To put it simply, using Spark Hire has been wonderful! We used to do an initial phone screen, and then move the candidates onto an in person interview. With Spark Hire, we have changed the way we do business. We spend much less time vetting the candidates we pass to our hiring managers and in the process, we’ve made our lives easier."
Digital Federal Credit Union
"We have been tracking our hire rate since moving to Spark Hire and it has drastically increased. If you ask me, it is because we have been able to get rid of the inefficiencies that existed in our old hiring process. I also attribute this success to the platform giving the team the flexibility to watch and review their interviews at any time, from any device."
"Spark Hire has offered us a way to 'add value' to a candidate's application when schools couldn't meet them face-to-face. These videos enabled schools to get a feel of each candidate, rather than merely text on a page of a written application. We wanted something that enabled us to get those offshore teachers 'in front' of school principals to showcase their personality and teaching experience."
"With Spark Hire, our clients have been able to hire 55 candidates in one day and the selection process was extremely simple for them. Our development team built out a hybrid showcase using inspiration from Spark Hire."
Joshua T. Kitchen
"Spark Hire's Video interviews allowed us to increase our hiring efficiency 7 times. Instead of 10 manual recruitments per week, we can now do 10 recruitments per day with Spark Hire."
"Spark Hire's video interviewing allows us to bring more candidates into our funnel to assess people with a wider range of backgrounds/different experience without spending more time on the hiring process."
"Before Spark Hire, I would spend 30-45 minutes speaking to each candidate on the phone, followed by a call or email to the hiring manager to debrief. What took an hour (or more) before now takes about 10 minutes, total! If we determine a candidate isn’t a good fit, we just move on rather than compete an entire interview."
FCCI Insurance Group
"With Spark Hire, we estimate it takes approximately 5 minutes to review a video interview compared to 30 minutes per phone screen. As a result, we have saved countless hours and thousands of dollars by using video interviewing. Plus the quality of insights about each candidate we are able to get from video interviews is priceless."
Fidelity & Guaranty Life
“As a direct result of screening our applicants with Spark Hire, we’ve noticed higher hiring manager satisfaction with our post-screening interviews, and we’ve been able to hire over half the applicants who make it through the screening process!”
First Community Federal Credit Union
"The platform has had a positive impact on not just saving us time in the hiring process, but also allowing us to be more effective in making the right hiring decisions. As a growing startup company, we can’t afford to make mistakes and hire a new employee that doesn’t work out. Thus, we focus on finding candidates that fit well with the company culture, and video interviewing makes that task a lot easier."
“Spark Hire is a great way to learn more about an applicant. It is great to be able to use technology to your advantage when looking to hire new staff, and really get a feel for who they are and their body language as they go through the questions.”
Global Leadership Adventures
“From the start, everyone on our team was really on board and excited to try out Spark Hire. It’s great for positions where you have multiple openings and pretty refined process. Spark Hire let us see the candidates in their own element and added some personality to a typically static resume. We couldn't have made these hires had it not been for the video interview process. It was so easy to get started with and we enjoyed using it.”
"Spark Hire is a great platform that allows me to get a quick look at my top candidates so I can determine who to bring in for an in-person interview. From there, I’m able to hire the best fit person for the role. Spark Hire saves me a lot of time and my candidates see the legitimacy of my company. I receive great support and follow up from the Spark Hire team and will use them for all of my company’s hiring needs."
“The video interview process with Spark Hire is a real timesaver! My hiring team can communicate effectively about the candidate’s performance and the next steps to take. I highly recommend this process to any company serious about making an impact on their candidate base as well as showing a technological savvy that other employers may not have.”
“Spark Hire is the #1 video interviewing software on the market - without exception. Utilizing Spark Hire for every client has fast-tracked our recruitment cycle by 50%. The product, customer service and ease of use is superlative. Not using Spark Hire is akin to not using a telephone to recruit. It's that valuable and the ROI is tremendous with every Spark Hire interview.”
Hunter Ambrose Executive Search
“Spark Hire has reduced effort, improved outcomes, and improved my brand. I love how easy it is to short list candidates and send my hiring manager a link to the best candidates.”
Human Capital Management Solutions
“The software is easy to use, the candidates like having the chance to do the video interviews and the customer service is top notch. In HR, I work with many vendors from Benefit providers to ATS systems and Spark Hire is one of the easiest and friendliest providers to work with.”
"Before Spark Hire, we used to waste a lot of time vetting people on onsite interviews instead of vetting them ahead of time. We did some phone interviews, but video interviews are so much better because you can actually see the person and they’re more dynamic on camera than they are on the phone."
Illinois Eye Center
"I looked at different video interviewing technologies when I was looking into starting the video interviewing process, and what I found about Spark Hire was that it was really simple to use. For ITW, simplicity is a huge part of who we are. So when looking for a platform that didn’t go overboard, but delivered on the necessities."
Illinois Tool Works
"At IncrediFlix we hire a lot of instructors each year in many different states with Spark Hire. Our applicants can conveniently choose when and where to interview. Even with different schedules, our entire team is able to see all of those interviews and does not have to rely on memory to further review candidates before making a decision. We plan on using Spark Hire for a long time to come."
"Hiring managers invest so much time in the screening of candidates, that it takes away from the work day. I found Spark Hire to be a convenient way to do candidate vetting and screening on my own time, and thus move candidates to finalist consideration much quicker. It's a fantastic way to save time, and identify team and culture fit, early on."
Independent School Alliance
"Spark Hire helps us get a much fuller picture on a candidate. We get hands on evidence that the candidate is tech savvy, can follow instructions, presents themselves professionally, and communicates effectively."
Innovative Staff Solutions
"Spark Hire has allowed us to pre-screen quickly and avoid delays that were traditionally caused by time zone differences. Further, we had candidates that might have been eliminated from our hiring process because we didn’t have the resources to interview as many candidates as we do now. As a result, there are some candidates that have advanced to the Spark Hire portion of our process and we were delighted when they turned out to be a great fit. These are candidates that we would have missed in the past. Ultimately, Spark Hire has helped us improve the quality of our shortlists and eventual hires in a much more cost-effective way."
"Spark Hire provides us a faster way to get our candidates placed, because for our industry and market, the agency who got their candidate to the table in front of the decision-maker first usually got the contract. Typically, we are competing against multiple agencies lining up interviews and Spark Hire allowed us to get our candidate in front of the client faster and thus, get the placement."
"The video interview process with Spark Hire has been an amazing addition to our recruiting process. We have been able to get better quality candidates in less time with this new tool. All of our hiring managers keep raving about the way they can create questions based around the particular skill set they are seeking."
“Spark Hire helped me to quickly and easily vet candidates for my company. I got to 'know' the candidate and gauge whether they would be a good fit before taking up too much of their time. We made about 40 hires using Spark Hire!”
“Spark Hire's customer service is out of this world. Their response to inquires and help were so expedient that we felt like we were their only customer. The website is user-friendly for both the interviewer and the interviewee.”
"Spark Hire 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."
“Spark Hire’s video interviewing platform has helped us with eliminating applicants that don’t meet our minimum requirements and we’ve reached the goal of eliminating wasted time that is spent on proceeding with a full interview. From the beginning, everyone was really on board and excited to try out video interviews. Within a few minutes, we had an idea as to whether or not this applicant would be a cultural fit.”
“We are more than satisfied with Spark Hire. Spark Hire provides exceptional customer service and support at a very affordable price which is important to us as a non-profit organization. Our candidates found the whole process of interviewing to be easy. We did make some excellent decisions on final interviews based on the use of Spark Hire.”
National Association of Church Personnel Administrators

"I cannot say enough good things about Spark Hire. My candidates find the service easy to use. My Account Manager and the Tech Support Manager are simply amazing. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Spark Hire's incredible team!"
Oliver Staffing, Inc.
"We used to conduct the interview by phone, but we NEVER got to see these people. Using Spark Hire, we get to see these people, and find we are picking people of higher quality. We can read their body language and understand a bit more about their personality compared to a phone screen. Now, we have 98% hire rate off video interviews."
"Using Spark Hire, we’re able to fill our requisitions in half the time. Our typical recruiting projects are time-sensitive and require us to fill a position in under 30 days. With the busy schedule of our potential candidates and recruiters, we needed a solution that enabled our interviews to take place anytime and anywhere without sacrificing the valuable detail you receive during the interviewing process."
"We fell in love with Spark Hire as soon as we saw the reaction from our clients. Our clients thought it was very unique and loved the idea of using the software for pre-screening."
“Using Spark Hire has allowed us, as a mid-size consultancy, to save time in the recruitment process, as well as to get a genuine look and feel for the candidates before using resources to schedule in-person interviews. The customer service and sales team at Spark Hire have been helpful and a joy to work with throughout this process.”
Jennifer Burton Arroyo
"By implementing Spark Hire into our hiring process, not only did we save countless hours, but also thousands of dollars in travel costs. This was also the second video interviewing platform we tried out. Previous to Spark Hire, we used a different platform. We ended up replacing it with Spark Hire because we only do seasonal hiring. The month to month subscription option is an absolute necessity for us."
“Our experience with Spark Hire has been beyond amazing. The program is easy to use for both the administrator and the candidates. Along with a great product, Spark Hire provides customer service that exceeds your expectations.”
Port of Long Beach
"Spark Hire makes it really easy for the candidates to do the interview process at their own time and on their own schedule. It allows those who are rating and reviewing those applicants to evaluate those same interviews at their own schedule and at their leisure. So you don’t have to worry about time zones, or difficulties with coordinating schedules. And then you can go back and rewatch the interviews should you need to view them at a later time."

"Spark Hire has reduced recruitment time, and eliminated painful phone screens. It allows candidates to showcase their personality and cultural fit, ultimately ensuring we get the best candidates for the role."
“As school Principals continue to evolve into instructional leaders, Spark Hire is not only saving valuable Principal time in the candidate pre-screening process, but also supporting our commitment to hiring the highest quality educators for our students.”
Redmond School District
"Spark Hire has replaced our phone screen and first face to face interview. Now, we receive and pre-screen the applications, invite candidates to a one-way video interview, invite candidates to a single in-person interview, and make our hiring decision. Spark Hire has saved us a tremendous amount of time."
Redstone Federal Credit Union
Jennifer K. McDougal
"Spark Hire helps us get through candidates faster and more efficiently for the jobs in a particular group that really require a cultural fit within the company. We have also gotten a lot of feedback from candidates saying that they have enjoyed it!"
"Spark Hire provides us a more efficient way to conduct interviews that would meet our needs, scheduling and otherwise, and allow for flexibility in the scoring process. The greatest aspect of video interviewing is in the ability to score interviews “on your time.” This can be done in the evenings, weekends, etc. as time allows."
Region One Education Service Center
"Spark Hire delivered the results that we sought from a video interviewing platform. It was very simple to use and required little training in order to set things up. It was great to see a product that can be easily branded at a minimal cost. Our candidates found the tool intuitive and I would recommend this to any company seeking to streamline their candidate selection stage."
"Not only is Spark Hire an intuitive tool, but it is also something that was truly designed with efficiency in mind. One example of this is having the ability to save question and email templates and then easily add new candidates to the same job opening. Video interviewing took the stress out of having to schedule over 90 interviews in less than 6 weeks. Spark Hire’s platform is very intuitive. It allowed us to adopt a very different hiring approach in a very short amount of time."
"Since beginning to use Spark Hire, we have done video interviews with more than 2,000 candidates and our conversion rate is higher than when we did preliminary in-person interviews. Overall it has saved us so much time every single day, as our CEO can watch the completed interviews whenever he has time."
"Spark Hire is time saving, efficient, and effective. Employees, supervisors, directors, and C-level staff are so busy handling Hospital and Health Care issues that video interviewing really does save time. Video interviewing helps to determine if a candidate would potentially a good fit without requiring the coordination of an in-person interview."
Saban Community Clinic
"We've been able to process 5X the number of interviews than before our shift to Spark Hire. We also have received great feedback from our applicants who appreciate the flexibility the platform offers with scheduling. Apart from allowing us to increase our interview output, we have also significantly decreased the number of hours our staff devotes to interviews. Time savings from Spark Hire freed up my team to tackle other issues, ultimately saving us thousands of dollars worth of employee time."
"With Spark Hire, we're able to consider more candidates for a role because one-way interviews take less time to review than a phone call. We also find we can move candidates through the process more quickly due to them being able to complete their interview after work hours or on the weekends when they have free time."
"The results with Spark Hire have been incredible. I have clients that specifically give me more job orders because of the technology. 50% of my clients won't see a candidate if they haven't completed a video interview. Since I started with Spark Hire, I have had a success rate of over 85% with placements and a retention rate of 95%."
Snap Talent International
"We use Spark Hire as a pre-screening method for bulk hiring roles and during our open house hiring events. Since implementing Spark Hire, we have increased the quality of candidates in attendance at the events and decreased the time spent on in-person interviews."
"Spark Hire's customer service is exceptional, just off-the-charts amazing. I always feel like their top priority. Their product is easy for both my use and potential candidates. Spark Hire sets us apart from the rest, and saves our clients time and money. We think you'll find it improves your time to place candidates. It also helps my colleague and I collaborate when we're not both in the office."
“We used Spark Hire to screen over 200 applicants and it was a huge time saver. Having used other video interview tools I like how flexible Spark Hire is with the product tiers and price points. It was the best fit for our company and we plan on using it for all future hires.”
"We connect skilled refugees with companies around the world. Spark Hire allows our candidates to put their best foot forward and introduce themselves to employers who can quickly get a sense of their personality and fit for potential roles."
Talent Beyond Boundaries
"Prior to Spark Hire, our recruiters would review the candidates’ applications and then conduct phone screens with suitable candidates. Since we started using Spark Hire, there has been a noticeable decrease in the time-to-fill a job, with a better quality of hire."
"Since we starting using Spark Hire, the percentage of candidates that were ultimately hired by our client improved by 60%. The video interviews provide our candidates an opportunity to sell themselves and for us to see if the candidate fits the position profile. This meant that a higher quality of candidate was ultimately invited to a face to face interview. In the past, candidates were brought in for face to face interviews based purely on paper screen alone."
The Vector Group International
"We wanted a simple solution at a fair price. We wanted an interviewing method that would show a more complete picture of our candidates. We wanted to let them show their personality and grit which are the keys to our company culture. Our current agreement with Spark Hire has proven to be a tremendous value."
"Video interviewing has allowed the managers more freedom in the hiring process, while remaining part of the pre-screening process. Spark Hire allows them to see more candidates on their own time!"
TTCU Federal Credit Union
“Spark Hire has made a huge difference in our hiring process. It allows for the district to get more involved in the early part of the interview process so we make sure we hire the best person. With Spark Hire, the interview process is way more transparent. To date, we have hired 12 individuals using Spark Hire.”
Tulpehocken Area School District
Dr. Edward Albert
"Spark Hire has really helped our team cut down on the amount of time we spend screening candidates. We were actually able to remove phone screens entirely from our interview process. This has been a major efficiency gain for us as we all know how much time phone screens take."
University of Pennsylvania

"We have used Spark Hire for our past two hiring cycles with great success. The price, ease of use, and reliability are the best. Our students/applicants like that they can do the video until they get it right, so it results in higher quality answers."
University of Wisconsin Law & Entrepreneurship Clinic
"Spark Hire has saved us a tremendous amount of time going over resumes and doing phone interviews. Their system allows us to screen and categorize candidates quickly and allows us to evaluate more candidates per hour. Our candidates always say how easy the platform is to use during their interview."
"Spark Hire has eliminated our need for a phone screen and Webex interview which has saved us a significant amount of time and money. Spark Hire is very easy to figure out, and their tech support was awesome at answering any questions we had."
Wake Forest University
“Spark Hire was the solution I have been waiting for. Much better than the rest of the similar services out there. The platform is easy to use and customer service was AMAZING! I frequently received follow up emails and calls just to make sure I was comfortable with the product. We made 18 hires!”
"Since we signed up with Spark Hire, we definitely have a stronger candidate pool to select from now. The additional information we get about each applicant from their video interview is incredible. Our candidates are no longer just words on a piece of paper. We truly get know our candidates in a way that we never knew was possible."
Wyoming Department of Agriculture
"Spark Hire really is a time saver and allows candidates to do on their own time – something that has been beneficial since many of our candidates already have full-time employment. Our teachers spend a lot of time in front of students and presenting, so the video interview is a no brainer because it allows us to see how they are going to present themselves. And, how they are going to communicate with us. So, it’s been incredibly helpful for us."

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. One of the biggest things when hiring people is getting below the surface and understanding the 80% of who they are. Its called the iceberg affect. When you interview in person you are only usually getting the best version of that person, the 20% as you would say. Well, when you add Spark Hire to your hiring system it forces your candidates to be genuine and real because most people are uncomfortable on camera which in turn allows you to see the authenticity of that person to make sure that they would be a culture fit for your business and worth taking to the next step of your interviewing process. Additionally the software is so simple to use and to rate your candidates and leave notes so that you can have multiple people in the account and know what is going on with that candidate even if they were not involved in the interview process. Spark Hire has been a huge value add for our business and it is very affordable.

As a virtual company, I love the ability to 'meet' the candidates and more strongly identify their cultural fit prior to a phone interview. Prior to using Spark Hire's one-way interviews, we spent significantly more time on phone interviews. With the one way interviews, we now can 'meet' the candidates, have questions that give us greater insight into a candidate from just their resume/cover letter, and allow the candidate to present their best self to us in a setting that's most comfortable and convenient for them. Too, we love that we can easily share the recordings with our team to have a more collaborative process.

Spark Hire is seriously THE BEST thing we've done for our in house recruiting efforts. It has allowed us to dramatically increase the number of candidates we are able to thoroughly screen while simultaneously reducing the time and money associated with doing so. Since adding Spark Hire in December, we've increased our candidate review rate by +24%. Cost per applicant has been reduced 9% and cost per hire is down 13%. On top of that, their customer service is incredible.
