VidCruiter’s pre-recorded video interviewing software improves the efficiency of any recruitment process by enabling hiring teams to screen applicants in a fraction of the time it takes to schedule and conduct either phone or in-person interviews.
How often do you realize that an applicant is unqualified for a position shortly after beginning a phone or in-person interview? Even though you know that they will not be the right fit, you must continue with the rest of the interview to provide them with a proper candidate experience, and essentially waste upwards of 30 minutes of your time. With pre-recorded video interviewing, you can start reviewing a candidate’s responses to key kick out questions, and if they are unqualified, you simply move on to the next applicant without having to review the remaining responses.
With pre-recorded video interviews, you don’t have to schedule a specific time with each applicant, which means hundreds of people could be answering your questions at the same time. Reviewing video responses is also significantly quicker than conducting a real-time interview, making it even easier to get the information you need about an applicant in less time.
Coordinating an interview with someone in a different time zone can be difficult. With VidCruiter, candidates from anywhere in the world record their answers on their own time. Therefore, your hiring team doesn’t need to worry about getting up early or staying late to interview a remote candidate.
Having candidates not show up for an interview is one of the most frustrating time wasters for a recruiter. With pre-recorded video interviewing, applicants conduct the interview on their own time, and your hiring team reviews the responses at their convenience. Since the interview doesn’t have to be completed at a specific time, your team no longer has to worry about candidates not arriving.
VidCruiter’s pre-recorded video interviewing gives recruiters the option to allow applicants to re-record their answers, get one shot, or a combination of both. The amount of pressure can be customized for each question, meaning the platform can meet the needs of any position.
Take pre-recorded video interviewing to the next level by combining it with VidCruiter’s Structured Digital Interviews. Your hiring team can score and rate an applicant’s responses using a digital version of your organization’s interview guides. You can customize the rating scales on a per question basis, and then the system will store and calculate the scores of each reviewer. This process allows your team to objectively assess candidates based on a standard set of criteria.
Get all of the information you need about a candidate without having to follow up or conduct multiple interviews. There’s no limit on the number of questions you can ask during a pre-recorded video interview. Also, you can save a set of questions as a template, making it easier to set up future asynchronous video interviews.
Using video-based instead of text-based questions is a great way to make the asynchronous video interview process more engaging for applicants. Adding a message from upper management or a testimonial video from an employee allows your organization to share its culture, illustrate the work environment, and set clear expectations for your potential applicants.
During an interview, it can be easy for an interviewer to forget to ask an important question. With pre-recorded video interviews, you set everything up in advance, and the system asks every candidate the same set of questions. You no longer have to worry about following up with candidates to collect information that was missed during an interview.
Having applicants complete a skills test is one of the best ways to determine their likelihood to exceed within your organization. With VidCruiter, you can incorporate videos into your skills testing to make it more engaging, interactive and valuable as an assessment tool. Whether you have candidates watch a video and provide a response or you have them record themselves while completing a question, the addition of video will ensure that both you and your applicants will get the most out of the skills testing experience.
Coordinating schedules and manually conducting screening interviews with multiple applicants can drag out your application process and annoy candidates. Instead of dealing with these hassles, candidates can focus on completing their video interview from a comfortable location when they are fully prepared to highlight their qualifications.
Video interviewing a great tool for screening applicants, but it can help your recruitment process even more. VidCruiter also offers live video interviewing software as a hassle-free way for your organization to conduct face-to-face interviews and further improve your hiring process.
“As a busy executive with too many deadlines and never enough time, VidInterviewing has helped First Jewelry Limited streamline our hiring process and save us weeks, if not months, on each hire. The video interview process allows us to view candidates on our time and easily manage the candidates in their system and not with countless resumes piled on my desk. Being able to see and hear the applicant helped us eliminate many candidates that looked good on paper, but were not suitable for our company and culture. If it weren’t for VidInterviewing, we would double or triple the amount of face-to-face interviews for each position, and as the old saying goes: 'time is money'.”

“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.”
