"Spark Hire's easy to use platform and excellent customer service."

What do you like best?

No implementation! Within a week or so of learning about Spark Hire, we were using the platform. The system is intuitive and easy to use and the customer service representatives are available any time for our questions. You have the same customer service rep throughout, so they get to know your institution and needs. When you begin using the platform, you get steps for success emails with easy to use instructions on getting started and best practices. The Spark Hire platform allows our hiring managers to have access to candidates across the country without the awkwardness of phone interviews or travel expenses. Our managers have been able to gain insight to an unlimited number of candidates while saving time and resources. We’ve had great response and feedback from managers and candidates alike.

"Excellent service and support"

What do you like best?

Spark Hire has changed our interview dynamic. With the addition of the one way interview, we are able to process candidates more efficiently and test their skills, too. This allows us to set our questions and get answered what we really need in order to determine a hire. We like the functionality of using our own questions but appreciate the ones offered by Spark Hire. Also, the support has been helpful and questions are readily answered. Concerns are resolved quickly which is also important. It's an easily adaptable platform and is very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

We have no issues with Spark Hire at this time. However, one recommendation I would have is to keep working on implementing it's functionality with ATS systems more easily. It would be great if the interview could auto populate into the ATS system without having to go into Spark Hire for viewing or without having to receive an alert. Auto integration would complete the cycle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Spark Hire; it's been a valuable tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had run into a lengthier time frame with our interview process. Spark Hire has helped us to efficiently solve this issue without giving up the quality we need with the candidates.

"Great product, excellent service"

What do you like best?

The interface is clean, easy to use, and works well for both interviewers and applicants. We've gotten great feedback from our applicants on the process as well as the support when they have an issue or a question. We love that SparkHire owns the customer support side, and proactively helps applicants, lifting that load off us.

What do you dislike?

The limitation of 10 questions can be tough - if you want to get feedback on applicants from multiple data points with quick responses, this setting is limiting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Setup is fast and relatively easy - video questions do make it more powerful and a better applicant experience. Can easily save 20% on labor costs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows us to quickly assess critical skills of applicants and prioritize interviewing those who are the best fit, and for whom we are the best fit for. It's reduced our interview no-show rate by over 85%.

"Manager, Inside Sales"

What do you like best?

SparkHire is incredibly easy to use. I'm able to post a new position and create an interview link within a few minutes. We've received great feedback from candidates using it as well.

What do you dislike?

I have not come across any issues or deficiencies in the platform so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Could not recommend this product more. Screening resumes, especially for an entry level sales position, can be very misleading. Making initial phone call interviewers can be extremely time consuming. SparkHire allows us to blend those two initial screens, allowing us to identify talent more effectively and drastically reduce time spent on the initial stages of our hiring process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SparkHire has improved the efficiency of our hiring process by at least 80%. Instead of the time-consuming process of making initial interview calls, we simply send out the video interview link and allow candidates to complete the initial video interview. We are then able to view the videos on our own time to decide who moves on to the next stages of our hiring process.

"Great Functional Video Interviewing Software"

What do you like best?

Sparkhire is a good platform for video interviewing. Whether you're using it for one position or multiple positions, it can handle the job. It's user interfaces are intuitive and the functionality allows us to do many things. In fact we don't even take advantage of all the software is able to do. The one-way interview feature is by fare what we use the most often. It allows us to interview more people to begin with. The set up of the interviews is easy and the feature that lets you record video intros to any question you send is very nice as well.

What do you dislike?

The pricing for this software is different. You pay based on the number of jobs you want to use it for at the same time. Since our hiring goes in cycles, many times we only need it for one job, but sometimes we need it for up to 5 jobs. We end up paying for 5 jobs all throughout the year since that is the max number we might need, but we only use it for 1 job much of the year. There are some little features that could be improved, and we'd love for Spark Hire to tie into our current application system (it does some but not ours), but overall we like the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product if you have large candidate pools for positions. It can give an extra level of screening and open the door for candidates who may not screen well on paper.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to accomplish a few different things with Spark Hire. First and foremost, we want to widen our candidate pool. The positions where we use Spark Hire usually have 100+ applicants. Typically we would bring in only 5 of those candidates to interview in-person, but by using Spark Hire's one-way interview feature, we can widen our net and video interview up to 20 candidates. Many times we end up hiring someone who would not have gotten an in-person interview had we only selected the top 5 candidates.

"Great tool for video interviews!"

What do you like best?

I liked that the video responses had time limits. You can also navigate to specific answers without having to listen to one long video straight through. This makes it easy to review submissions when time is available, without having to dedicate large amounts of time to the process.

What do you dislike?

There's lots of functionality. This was my first time using it and our HR team didn't use all of the platform's capabilities. That caused a little bit of confusion since we didn't do the entire candidate review process within the Spark Hire environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great, intuitive tool for including video interviews as part of the application process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our business problem is schedule coordinating among multiple staff with busy schedules and various candidates' schedules. Spark Hire allowed us to see candidates without the hassle of coordinating staff and candidate schedules.
