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."

"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.”

"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."
"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."

"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 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.”

“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!”

"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.”

“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.”

“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.”
"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."

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.
