Q2: How does the integration of one-way video interviews with an ATS benefit the hiring process?

A2: Integrating one-way video interviews with an ATS streamlines the hiring process by allowing recruiters and hiring stakeholders to seamlessly review and assess candidate responses within the same platform where they manage other aspects of the recruitment process. It improves efficiency and accuracy, and provides a centralized location for candidate evaluation, reducing time to hire.

Q3: Can candidates complete one-way video interviews at their convenience?

A3: Yes, one-way video interviews offer flexibility to candidates. They can complete the interview at a time that suits them best, eliminating scheduling conflicts and accommodating candidates from different time zones.

Q4: How are one-way video interviews initiated within an ATS?

A4: Recruiters and hiring managers can initiate one-way video interviews within an ATS by selecting candidates for the process and specifying the relevant stage or step in the recruitment workflow. This triggers an invitation to the candidates to complete the video interview.

Q5: Can one-way video interviews be customized for different job roles?

A5: Absolutely. Recruiters and hiring managers can customize one-way video interviews by creating specific sets of questions tailored to each job role. This ensures that the evaluation process is relevant and aligned with the skills and competencies required for the position.

Q9: What happens if a candidate faces technical issues during a one-way video interview?

A9: It’s recommended to have a contingency plan in place. Provide clear instructions for technical requirements, offer support resources, and have a designated contact for candidates to reach out in case of technical difficulties.
