    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HireVue in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was on demand recorded interview using their interview platform. This included recording video answers to video questions and coding challenge. Follow up interviews were in person, everyone I spoke with were very pleasant, professional and friendly. Really great interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HireVue (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process was kind of slow and took a long time. By the time the process was over I began to lose interest. I applied, and about 3 weeks later had to take their online interview. The online interview wasn't very impressive. It uses outdated Flash technology, so I had to install Flash for the first time in years. Kind of took me aback based on all their flashy marketing. Then, you will have to answer some everyday interview questions like what kind of challenges have you faced on a webcam with a time limit. You will also have to answer a coding question inside the browser. They use the same system as the CodeEval website they own. Make sure it passes the unit tests. Then they brought me in for an interview and had me code up a simple application that more closely related to the position I applied for. They didn't seem very well prepared for my interview. Some of the key people that usually interview weren't in the office, and some were in meetings.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HireVue (South Jordan, UT) in February 2013.

    Interview

    First interview was online using their software. I was asked "get to know you" questions along with questions about my past experience. I was also asked some technical questions and given a programming exercise to assess whether I could program. It was nice because I could take the interview on my own time without having to take time off of work. After passing that interview I was invited on site. We worked through some whiteboard programming problems and algorithms. The whiteboard sessions were interactive which gave me a feel what it's like to problem solve with the team and allowed me to demonstrate my technical abilities. I was also asked to talk through how I would design one of their existing products. We started high level and worked our way down into some of the lower level details. Throughout this discussion we talked about tradeoffs and risks.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HireVue in September 2017.

    Interview

    This was truly a world-class process. Not only are they helping companies nationwide reimagine their hiring process, HireVue practices what they preach. I applied through Glassdoor, was sent an OnDemand, pre-recorded interview to complete a day later. I was able to complete it on my own time, at the comfort of my home, after work hours. I was then contacted by the hiring manager the following day. I completed a phone interview with the hiring manager, spoke with two current employees a few days later. Following, I was tasked with giving a presentation to a panel surrounding one of their largest prospects and how I would strategize the account. I was then rolled up to the SVP the following week, and finally an hour interview with the Chief Sales Officer. From start to finish, this group had it together. Altogether, the process took about 2 weeks.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HireVue (Remote, OR) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Had an initial video call with recruiter, then was invited to take an on-demand video interview. It's good that you can conduct this at a time that suits, but I found it very unnatural giving my answers into a camera, not a human. My interview was five questions, nothing too difficult, quite high level and more designed for the screening purpose rather than diving into suitability for the role. Although the questions were not challenging, the experience of talking to my computer instead of a person was! I completed the interview with two days, and after 10 days received a generic email from HR that they would not be moving me forward. I replied to ask for specific feedback, but didn't get any. After I have invested hours of my time preparing and participated in an interview, the least I expect is specific feedback, not a generic automated email.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HireVue.

    Interview

    First steps is to do their on-demand interview where they ask you a series of questions. Mainly the basics like; why hirevue, why this position etc.

    The next steps is another video interview but this time with a live person where they can determine your actual social skills.
