‘VidCruiter Review.’

Capterra Review - Cyndi P

Pros: User interface
Ease of use for the candidates
Ability to have multiple reviewers
Candidates can make more than one attempt at each question
Customer service is great

Cons: Challenging to learn
Candidates may not have access to web cam
Candidates opt out of interviewing if they are required to do it on video

Overall: The advantages of VidCruiter are the benefits the program gives to our hiring managers. They can review interviews at any time and any place as long as they have an internet connection. They aren’t limited to sitting at their desks in their offices watching video interviews when other work needs to be more of a priority. Also, any number of managers can review the same recruitment by sending individual links to them. Managers can also review the interviews by question which allows them to view how each candidate answers a specific question making it much easier for them to grade.

On the candidate side of the program, the interview can be set up to allow them to make a few attempts before they finalize each question. In addition, it allows the candidates to view the questions in advance to be able to prepare their answer.

We receive mixed reviews from managers. Some don’t want to use the program while others are excited to try it out. Our recruiters sell the concept of using the program and communicate the advantages to managers. We have had greater success when we provide more information.

The downside to VidCruiter is that it is moderately challenging to learn. Once the program is understood, it’s fairly easy to navigate but it takes using the program several times to become familiar with it. The user interface is pretty straightforward. In addition, VidCruiter does not have a user manual to refer to in the event of a question, though customer service is usually available to answer questions as they arise. A user manual would be a nice addition.

Also, many applicants opt out of interviewing if they have to do it on video. This would be the case with any video interview program. The agency could be missing out on great candidates if the candidate chooses not to interview. Another challenge for applicants is the availability of a computer with a web cam. Our agency will assist with providing a place for those candidates to interview, however, it is an inconvenience for the candidate.

Overall, I think VidCruiter is a good program. We have heard from other agencies that use a different program and have heard that it is much more difficult to navigate. This program specifically requires the candidate to download a separate software program to their computer or phone to be able to connect to the program to interview.

Recommendations to other buyers: Overall, this is a good product. As far as video interviewing software goes, I understand that its the most user friendly in the industry.


‘VidCruiter has become indispensable.’

Software Advice Review - Jonathan R.

Comments: For the most part, candidates report VidCruiter is easy to use. There are of course issues with platforms and software every now and then, but these are a minority of cases, and customer support is so excellent that I don’t feel these cases are a detriment to our hiring goals. Every case is solved expediently. I especially appreciate that customer support will call my candidates directly, so the responsibility for solving the issue is on VidCruiter and not my candidates or me. In this arena, Remy deserves praise. When I call for help, he almost always answers the phone, and when he doesn’t, I get a return call promptly. He’s always courteous and clear, even when my questions belie human error or lack of understanding on my part.

Principals love VidCruiter, specifically the video interview and the references. 1. Video interview — Last year, our initial screen was a phone screen conducted by me. I would share my notes and ratings with our five principals for them to decide whether they wanted to use their limited and precious time to schedule a phone interview. This year, we use the VidCruiter video interview in place of the initial phone screen. My principals report that they feel much more confident moving forward to phone interviews based on the video interview. They also report that there have been far fewer “dud” phone interviews this year than last year, meaning the video interview has provided far more useful information than our phone screens last year. 2. References — Last year, one of the principals would call each reference, take notes, and share written notes with the other principals. This year, all 5 principals can read each reference’s words directly. The potency of the references is greatly augmented. Also, I’m able to ensure that all references have been collected by a certain date/time, so we’re able to make hiring decisions much more quickly than before, when we had to wait to catch references on the phone.


‘Great software, very user-friendly!’

Software Advice Review - Tracy R.

‘Vidcruiter is an amazing site!’

Software Advice Review - Jenn V.

Pros: Applicant prescreens

Cons: there are no cons that we have regarding Vidcruiter!

Overall: Vidcruiter has been an amazing site to use for our recruitment and training needs. Our rep from the start, has been incredibly helpful in assisting us on how to use the site, and always willing to fix any problems we have. With the amount of applicants our company receives daily, Vidcruiter has made the process more efficient, and helps us filter out candidates without us having to call each individual. Very happy with the service and site! would recommend this to all companies.


‘Vidcruiter is easy to use, time efficient (saves time) and allow user to make more informed decision’

Software Advice Review - Nichola C.

 

Pros: The ability to easily use the software. There are many features that assist in the hiring process.

Cons: Software not able to block applicants who apply with more than one emails.
Some test scores has to be manually scored.

‘One of the best product I have ever used!’Software Advice Review - Alan L.

Pros: Very robust, flexible, and well designed, easily configurable.

Cons: None

Overall: The team is great to work with and they totally understand your business needs and will offer direct solutions rather than workarounds. The Product itself is very well designed and easily configurable to customize your needs on the fly. No need for custom coding in most cases. The company listens to their customer needs/Feedback and adjust/upgrade the product roadmap accordingly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just try it.


‘Great site’Software Advice Review - Joanne B.

Pros: Customer support and availability to customize features to suit as needed.

Cons: A lot of features I personally don’t use so lots to look through.

Overall: I can’t imagine any feature that is not available that can help in classifying, sorting and screening applicants. The customer support (CS) is always friendly and available with a very fast response time. I have found that if I do not have time to go through my own site to make a change, CS is happy to make it happen for me and lets me know when it’s complete. Alternately, if I wish to know how to make changes, (CS rep) has been available to guide me via written or on screen navigation and has patiently walked me through instructions. We are very happy with VidCruiter.

Recommendations to other buyers: Customer service and reliability trumps all.


‘Vidcruiter is a helpful tool that offer amazing features.’

Software Advice Review - Christopher F.

Pros: Vidcruiter has great, responsive customer service. The software ultimately does save time with our on-boarding process.

Cons: because it is not very user friendly, it does not inspire user to take full advantage of its capability


‘The BEST video interviewing platform’

Software Advice Review - Tsvety N.

Pros: – live interviews where you can have as many as 6 people attending
– questions are not only in written form, but also video
– you can add question scripts to the live interviews to guide the interviewer
– hiring managers can rate and provide comments on every answer, not just overall feedback/rating
– rating can be based on a competency model that interviewer can refer to
– being able to add disqualifying questions
– various workflows to the recruiter/candidate/hiring manager
– ability to use email templates, intro videos and company branding
– ability to test excel and typing skills
– interview calendar sync with Gmail

Cons: No integration with Salesforce/Jobscience, but I know they are working on it

Overall: We reviewed more than ten vendors that offered video interviewing applications and went with VidCruiter because they offered the most robust solution at a very reasonable price. The implementation was quick and easy. The UI is user friendly and recruiters, hiring managers and candidates have no problem using it. Their support is outstanding and they have made many customizations to the product based on our specific use case. Thank you


‘Responsive Team!’

Software Advice Review - Lynn O.

Pros: I love how easy it is to post a job, you simply follow the numbered steps. I love how we now have a template we can use for jobs we often post. I have not had an opportunity yet to use the scheduling feature, however, I’m looking forward to trying it.

Cons: I do not like that we are not able to sort our jobs by year. It would be easier for us if there were folders by year we could create and keep those jobs in the appropriate folder.

Overall: I receive a response to an email or voice mail in a matter of minutes. If they do not have the answer right away, they acknowledge the inquiry and get back in a reasonable amount of time. My dealings are mostly with our rep and the service is always friendly, intelligent and professional. Great customer service! The software is easy to use and I find the different pages well displayed/easy to read. The VidCruiter recruitment software is 100 times better than the other application my company used.

Overall: I can really go paperless.


‘Vid Cruiter Review’

Vid Cruiter has helped us become more efficient by allowing us to have our entire recruiting process in one data base. Everything we need is at our fingertips.

‘VidCruiter has made our worlds 10x easier!’

Software Advice Review - Alyssa I.

Comments: We initially joined VidCruiter as a way to expand the amount of candidates that we’re able to consider and allow for candidates who might have weaker candidates initially to be considered. What we’ve gained from using VidCruiter is a more accurate and insightful read on candidates by being able to see their face and hear their voice. This has impacted both our recruitment team and the hiring manager that we work with. They have LOVED getting to know candidates in a way that feels more personal to them through the use of VidCruiter.


‘Innovative Tool’

‘Vidcruiter has made hiring easier’

Comments: Being a call centre, we are able to find the best candidates to conduct an in-house interview as we have a voice recording of applicants along with their resume and their answers to our online interview.

‘Custom features and responsiveness great’

Software Advice Review - Richard O.

Comments: The team built out an incredible custom software feature for us which we cannot imagine living without now that it is fully integrated into our recruiting efforts.

‘VidReferencing = Huge Time Saver’

Software Advice Review - Peter J.

‘From a Recruiter’

Software Advice Review - Andrea D.

Software Advice Review - Danika D.

Comments: I have been using VidCruiter for about a year now, and have never really used a platform like it before. It’s great for making the prescreen process easier and organizing your applicants, but due to a lack of some functions, it can be a tedious process sorting through everything. Overall though, it helps get the job done.

G2 Crowd Review - Steve K

What do you like best?
Vidcruiter allows you to build video interviews (pre-recorded and live) and assessments directly into an automated hiring workflow in the platform. You can customize the workflow to match your company’s processes. Interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. It has the standard ATS features – jobs page, customized candidate questions and rating system, job templates, resume/attachment upload, automated emails, customized notifications, etc. – in addition to the ability to customize screening video questions/options and share applicant videos easily with hiring managers and others in the company.

We liked that you could do multi-party video conferences in the system and record them (useful for video interviews where hiring managers are in different offices). Videos can be recorded on PC or on mobile, which was key for us with so many people using their mobile devices nowadays. There is also a built-in calendar integration that allows for automated scheduling and allows you to see the times you and other users have free on your calendar (we use Outlook/Office 365).

Vidcruiter’s implementation and support team is very friendly, helpful and responsive (shout out to Remi, Sophie and Sophia!). They are knowledgeable of their product and customer needs, provide good training, and are quick to offer solutions and get things done when you have requests for updates, customization or how-to information.

What do you dislike?
Didn’t really dislike anything but the reporting could be a bit more robust (they are working on adding more reports currently) and we did have a few applicants who experienced tech difficulty connecting to the live video conferences, some of which can be caused by web browser security settings, and sometimes can also be user error (tech ability is actually one of the things we are testing for) or poor internet connection, and VC has recently implemented a new video protocol that has made it even easier. For the most part, applicants are able to connect and use it easily (VC has easy step by step instructions with screenshots and a tech check, as well as online chat to assist with this).

Recommendations to others considering the product
If you use video and/or assessments as part of your hiring process, Vidcruiter is a good option!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use pre-recorded videos as part of the hiring process and it had previously been very difficult and time-consuming to manage this manually. With Vidcruiter, it’s all right there in the ATS. The videos are recorded through the system and they are automatically part of the candidate’s record. It’s easy to break them up and review them by question. It helped us to not have to spend a lot of time managing video being submitted in a whole bunch of different formats and via email, Dropbox, etc., which was then difficult to share internally and track.

It also automated our assessment process. We use a number of accounting assessments and the process used to be very manual – emailing PDF to the candidate, emailing back, following up, saving in a separate network location that wasn’t in the ATS with the rest of the applicant info. With Vidcruiter, assessments can be associated to specific jobs, and the link and instructions for the assessment are sent directly to them when you moved them to that stage, and they had a certain amount of time to complete the assessment, and you are automatically notified when it has been completed and the completed assessment was saved in the candidate record where it could be graded.

The key thing was that the videos and assessments were built right into the system – you had everything in one place and weren’t managing it all manually through email and across multiple systems. It’s a good solution for companies that use videos and assessments as part of their hiring process.


What do you like best?
There are so many things to love about using Vidcruiter. We would not be able to operate at the success rate that we are without their awesome applicant tracking system, the user-friendly platform, the organization of our applicants into unique folders, the instant responses received from their Client Success Team and personalized one-on-one training with our new hires.

What do you dislike?
While we do not have any dislikes of Vidcruiter and their services, for our company specifically and the amount of scheduled and rescheduled interviews we have, combining the same applicant via email address into one Vidcruiter profile with all the history & notes included would make researching their progress a little easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product
You will not regret integrating Vidcruiter into your company’s hiring process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
As a new start-up company in November 2017, we were more than overwhelmed with the number of applicants that we received for our international tour guide search. With Vidcruiter and the awesome Client Success Team, we have been able to organize our incoming applicants, we are conducting high-quality live video interviews and have the option to offer a self-recorded video interview to applicants that are far outside of the US time zones and regularly conducted business hours. Vidcruiter has given my company the opportunity to maintain our database of applicants (hired and not-yet hired) in a very secure and well-organized fashion.


What do you like best?
Customer support is amazing! I have not had any issues with the software but anytime I have had a question or request, the Vidcruiter team has always been very responsive and have gone the extra mile for me / my colleagues. Also, the software has allowed us to interview more candidates in less time and we are able to make a hiring decision much quicker than before.

What do you dislike?
Honestly, the only negative I have experienced was on the applicants end (ie. they did not read / follow the instructions) but again, whenever this has happened, the Vidcruiter support team has been amazing and I usually have a response within minutes of my email.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Vidcruiter has significantly reduced the time we take from advertising a job process to making a hiring decision.


What do you like best?
The customer service was great– very hands on. Vidcruiter staff helped us throughout the entire onboarding process and then actually continued to assist us throughout our entire engagement with them! No questions were ever left unanswered. They were also able to create some workarounds for us when our hiring required some special circumstances– very accommodating for all our needs.

What do you dislike?
Nothing to note here! Very satisfied with all aspects of the service. A couple glitches from time to time but that’s to be expected, and all were handled promptly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It was a huge time saver for us– allowed us to easily interview candidates from all across the country remotely, and in a way that still felt personal.


What do you like best?
Vidcruiter is so easy to use for interviewers and candidates. The support team is super responsive. We’ve used Hirevue and Kira Talent and neither of them has the support team and features that vidcruiter provides. I love that you can customize the interface for your own company.

What do you dislike?
The very few suggestions I had were implemented!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Vidcruiter provides a positive and easy candidate experience. It saves time and money for interviewers. More efficient all around!


What do you like best?
The level of service provided so far has been tremendous. Quick answers to questions and they handled all the set up for us!

What do you dislike?
So far, there has not been anything at all that I disliked.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are using the pre-recorded interview process to help us screen applicants to specific positions. We are just in the beginning stages but can already see that having the videos provides us many additional factors to rate applicants on.


What do you like best?
Our first year using the program and a process working together with the Vidcruiter team to create and customize a system that fit our needs. We have used most of the functions that Vidcruiter provides and have had much success.

What do you dislike?
For our highly extensive and customized purposes, there isn’t much to dislike about the program. I consider what we may do differently for future use and how to make its current functions work best for us.

The program is efficient and very easy to use. Plus you have all the information you need right at your finger tips.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Multi-use and accessible as we have many employees who travel or are located regionally, cost-efficient, paperless and a shareable online data bank that we can provide to our HR department, it’s a great information tracking system, access to reports and statistics, ease of correspondence and client information. It takes the guess work out of the process by providing a rating for the candidate throughout the steps. It is an equivalent to a one stop shop for our purposes as we have one system for most functions and one contact for support. Well worth it!

We are a network of charter schools in Philadelphia. Our recruitment team uses VidCruiter software in conjunction with Salesforce. We signed up for VidCruiter so that we could free up recruiter time during phone interviews. We were limited in the number of people that we could conduct phone interviews with, so our process relied very heavily on resume screening. VidCruiter has allowed us to interview FAR more people and to consider people seriously beyond a resume. Candidates enjoy the flexibility in scheduling and the ability to re-record their answers. As a recruiter, it is nice to reserve phone interviews for critical roles or follow up questions.Customer support is amazing. Delightful, really. Replies are fast and issues are resolved quickly. It is very much a selling point that has allowed us to renew for the last couple of years.

Pros

Customer support is amazing. Delightful, really. Replies are fast and issues are resolved quickly. It is very much a selling point that has allowed us to renew for the last couple of years.

Cons

Occasionally, video load time lags both as a reviewer and for candidate participants. I’m not sure why. As a reviewer, this means it takes me a bit longer than I’d like to watch a video because it will stream the first few seconds and I have to keep pausing it to let it buffer. I am confident that it isn’t my internet connection because I can easily enjoy Netflix and YouTube without this issue. The way of creating positions and adding questions to positions is a more time consuming than I’d like. For me, this is where I lean on the support team who graciously create positions for me in what seems like lightening speed.

We contacted Vidruiter to help us transition from a paper only volunteer application process to an online application process. We knew were going to get hundreds of applications as this was the second year in a row for us hosting the event. The online platform we that VidCruiter developed in very close collaboration with us was superb. As Chair of the Volunteer recruitment and accreditation committee (and a volunteer myself), it was very important to me that I be able to manage the information from the applications and that it be as automated as possible. The product they developed achieved this in spades and I was able to focus more on the volunteer’s experience and assistant the rest of the committee rather than staying on top of all the paper. Working with the staff at VidCruiter was a very positive experience and they grasped what we needed while coming up with their own innovations that were really helpful. Response time on questions was very good and I can honestly say that I always got an answer quickly.
