4 reasons why we’re all doing it
1. Hiring is expensive and time-consuming. In the U.S., it’s costing companies an average of $4,000-$6,000 for every hire, not including hidden costs like training, potential turnover, and more. By turning hiring into a game with a payment structure based on outcomes, we allow businesses to pay as they go to interview fewer people more quickly.
2. Job seekers are less inclined to waste their time on unqualified candidates and can spend more time researching other opportunities.
3. Candidates don’t have to wait around at home or work all day waiting for phone calls that may never come.
4. Companies who use our software are achieving higher conversion rates than those who rely solely on traditional methods–meaning better quality hires at a lower cost per hire!
2 types of screening interviews
Typically, there are two types of screening interviews for a position. A telephone interview typically lasts 30 minutes and gives the candidate a chance to demonstrate their skills. There is also an in-person interview where candidates typically are more interactive with the interviewer and it lasts up to two hours. In both instances, interviewers should remain as objective as possible and ask standard questions about work experience and interests. Employers will often use this information to help them decide whether or not the candidate would be a good fit for the job.
How to prepare for a screening interview
A screening interview is an initial assessment conducted by a potential employer. It usually takes place by telephone or video conferencing and lasts 15-30 minutes. When you have a screening interview, there are some simple steps to follow that will help you feel ready and confident.
Here’s how you can prepare for your screening interview: 1) Check the company website for information about dress code, corporate culture, preferred behavior during an interview, etc.
The pros and cons of screening interviews
Streamlining the hiring process is great for both employees and companies, as time is saved by interviewing, interviewing, and then interviewing some more. But what about taking it a step further? What if we completely cut out the middle man—or even the first-round interviewers? Hireflex plans to do just that by employing A.I. chatbots to conduct video interviews with potential hires and determine whether or not they’re worth it for the company. If you’ve ever taken an online quiz before, you know how this works: The bot asks you questions about your experience, and after getting your answers, decides if you’re qualified for the position.
