    Enterprise Sales Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very fitting as they used their own software to conduct the interview. Being the first time that I had conducted an interview with this type of software, I was not fully prepared until the practice questions at which point I felt very strongly prepared you.

    Following the interview - there was no confirmation of reviewing the interview and no follow up to let you know whether the position was going to be filled with another candidate. After a few emails reaching out to talent aquisition - I finally gave up with no answers. It was very frustrating and unacceptable. I understand if the skillset wasn't what they were looking for but they should at least acknowledge and thank you for interviewing.

    I applied through other source - interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional, disrespectful way of interview; the lack of interaction with an interviewer or interviewing committee makes you feel as if nobody cares of what you are saying. It feels as those interviews where no one pays attention to what you have to say. Your words feel meaningless and your enthusiasm starts fading away as you go through the questions. May the future of interviewing NOT go this route as it will cause companies to risk opportunities in acquiring prospective employees with excellent skills and talents that in no way can be measured via the monotony of a HireVue interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult; you can have the same question in a panel. The difference is the lack of interaction with people where you get a reaction or body response to what you are saying from those in the panel. The interview becomes empty and meaningless making you feel as if you are not important or being really considered for the job. Very traumatizing experience for me.   Answer Question

    This was completely new to me. I was not really prepared for an on-demand, pre-recorded interview. It was tough but really convenient.

    Software Engineer (Python/Django) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Draper, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Draper, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at HireVue in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview had two basic components to it. The first part of the interview was conducted via the company's software, which I performed at home. The software asked various questions and provided me about a minute to produce a video recorded answer. I found the whole process odd, like dating a mannequin or eating plastic fruit.

    The second part of the interview was the standard panel interview peppered with contrived whiteboard questions. The interviewers asked me to reinvent several standard library functions, and smugly pontificated during the entire process. The interview was disorganized, pointless, and worst of all, nobody ever bothered to review the video interview they made me produce. I don't know if I would have received an offer or not since I told the recruiter I wasn't interested in working for the company right after the interview. HireVue's software didn't interest me and I was put off by the puerile bravado.

    The company has moved into nicer facilities since I interviewed with them, so they're obviously doing something right, but they just weren't for me.

    Interview Questions
    • All their whiteboard questions were focused on rewriting standard Python library methods like sort(). I got the impression they liked reinventing the wheel.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I wasn't interested in their software and couldn't imagine myself enjoying working with two of the three people who interviewed me.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were not clear about what the job requirements are. The worst thing, however, about HireVue is the lack of responsiveness. For a company that works in HR, they need to know that getting back to candidates in a timely fashion is important. It's not uncommon for the company to ignore giving feedback or response to candidates for 3 or more months. This is simply pathetic.

    Not Very Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at HireVue in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was by video - one way - using their technology. Next stage was to do an interview with the VP and HR recruiter. Was surprised that they cancelled the first interview just moments before. Was waiting online before I realized it was cancelled. Interview was re-booked, the to my utter surprise cancelled again - within 5 mins of the interview. For a small and young company, they haven't learned what it means to respect the applicant. If they can't respect you during the interview process, they won't respect you when you're hired. Last surprise was that an apology or explanation was never even given. Now they've damaged their brand. When I'm in a decision making role for a hiring solution, I would not recommend their solution based on this poor experience.
