    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HireVue in April 2017.

    Interview

    Great experience doing a recorded video interview and then live video interviews with the hiring manager and several members of the team. I felt doing a video interview as the first step it opened the door for them to see my personality and see an early culture fit with the team.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at HireVue (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview is utilizing their product. Very casual and easy interview. Try to allow your personality to shine through on the video interview. Hirevue is a tool I've used with previous employers and personality is one of the key items to getting through to a live person. Although awkward at first, try to get comfortable on camera and practice in front of a mirror before you complete the interview to get comfortable seeing yourself on camera. Be sure to articulate yourself in the best possible way and smile.

    They interview you using their software interview system. Coding tasks were reasonable. Be sure to have a perfect internet connection otherwise your interview timer will continue run while you are reconnecting to the system.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at HireVue (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a link to take the recorded interview. It's smart to really interview everyone that applies, more data for them. I took this and while initially awkward I like the concept and level playing field with analytical data to back it up. I waited about 10+ days before receiving a follow up for another interview. The HR person referred to me by the wrong name in one email which wasn't great but it happens. The interview went really well and I could tell it would be a fun place to work with an engaging team. Ultimately, they are just unbelievably slow at the hiring process and I had to move forward elsewhere. I'd think they would recognize the need to act with a quicker sense of urgency but I only saw two rounds in over a month.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HireVue (Houghton, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    There are ten questions. These questions mainly required me to talk about the past experience on web development and mobile experience. There was only one coding problem which had been mentioned by the interview email. The problem was not so difficult.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at HireVue in April 2016.

    Interview

    Online interview, where questions are recorded, and answers given also as recording. An easy coding question also given online. Was very odd. I felt pretty highly qualified for the position, I aced the coding question and they didn't proceed. ( I know for a fact I aced the coding question, since there was an online compiler/tester of your code/answers.) If you're looking for good coders/engineers, and acing the coding question doesn't help, then you should give much harder programming questions to distinguish qualified candidates.

    This is where having live interviewers is possibly better (albeit less standardized) in ramping up the difficulty of questions based on candidate performance.Rejection is fine, I've been through dozens of those without issues, but you should never leave a candidate feeling he couldn't do anything better on the performance based part of the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HireVue in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. Questions semi-applicable. I have over 15 years years in sales and customer success and I'm not saying I should get the job, but HireVue will not respond to an email or feedback. I think how a company handles the whole interview process is very indicative of internal processes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview

    For a company that sells a product that is supposed to enhance the recruiting process, it was a remarkably conventional if no sub-par experience. Applied online and after about 2 weeks I heard back from a recruiter. They sent me the video interview and a small project to complete (2 or 3 hours max). After submitting all of the requirements I did not hear back from anyone for about 2 weeks, when I emailed the recruiter he/she informed me that no decision had been made yet. After about 3 weeks I got a standard rejection email.

    Perhaps for any other company this would be alright, but Hirevue is supposed to be about improving the recruiting and hiring process. The whole experience came across as impersonal, inefficient, mechanical, and unnecessarily lengthy. Also, it was disappointing that no feedback was provided, even after asking me to complete a 2-3 hour project. Even if the feedback is generic, there is something to be said about a recruiter that takes the time to personally reach out.

    The video interview software might be a great tool from the recruiter's perspective, but from the candidate perspective it provided me no value. If anything, it made it more impersonal in that I never even spoke on the phone to anyone.

    I take the time to give all this feedback because as a Utah resident I would like to see Hirevue do well, but you guys need to raise your game when it comes to recruiting.
