    Sales Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at HireVue.

    Interview

    The initial interview was appropriately delivered via HireVue's OnDemand interview capability. I researched in advance on lighting and positioning techniques, and added to the ability to take practice questions, I felt fairly comfortable with the process. The questions were the kind you'd expect for an introductory sales position. Fairly soon after I received an invitation for a live video interview with leadership, that ended up being more of a chance for me to ask questions than a rehashing of the same foundational questions from the OnDemand. Overall, very good experience in a recruitment process that took less than 30 days.

    Interview Questions

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    HireVue has developed an industry leading, cutting edge talent interaction platform for use in the hiring, onboarding and employee development of the top companies in the world. They also use their own platform in the hiring process. At a bare minimun, applicants will take and on-line, on-demand, digital interview that will be recorded by the applicants webcam or smartphone and reviewed later by HR and hiring mangers. If the applicant makes it through this round one, round two will be a series of on-line live or in person, on-site interviews. After that, an offer is usually made rather quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question an applicant will face for this particular position will come during the online, digital interview. The applicant will be asked to do some research about the company and its product and then do a 90 second, elevator sales pitch which is recorded. It can be a bit tough to nail it.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at HireVue (South Jordan, UT) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Overall a positive experience.

    First came in and met with Director of Sales and VP of HR. Just a "get to know you" type of meeting.
    Head of Talent reached out to me a couple days later via email and sent me an OnDemand.
    Came in a second time to interview and meet with some team members.
    Negotiated and established a start date.

    Very professional and positive experience.

    Enterprise Sales Interview

    Interview

    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.

    SQL Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at HireVue in March 2014.

    Interview

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

    Interview Questions

    • I had to write a press release from scratch. This obviously took more time than they suggested I'd need.   Answer Question

    Product Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview

    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.

    Software Engineer (Python/Django) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Draper, UT
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at HireVue (Draper, UT) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at HireVue in February 2014.

    Interview

    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.
