Hi, i'm currently interviewing for role at other companies and a few of the interviews are one-way videos, in other words candidate has to record interview questions and submit them to recruiter/hiring manager. I find that a bit off putting, are these self record interview going standard/is it becoming a thing? Dont get me wrong I'm fine with standard video interviews with another human being asking questions and conversing 🤣. . Thoughts?

I had a few requests for them and it was bizarre. It also made me reconsider applying to some of the companies. It felt unnatural and completely disconnected. At one point I got started and basically said that I’d be more than happy to schedule a Zoom/Teams meeting with a person but this felt like some sort if speed dating prep.

They are becoming a thing. … and I am finding it more and more with high end F1K/F500 companies……I hate to say get accustomed but…..🙂🙂🙂😬😬😬

I did a couple of these in 2020 when I was looking for a job. I found them uncomfortable, but doable. There are still positions where real humans converse...I guess it depends on how much you want the job!

I had never heard of that. I like the live interaction too, but maybe this is a new thing evolving for the future. Best of luck in your job search!!

They are definitely uncomfortably but they definitely seem to be replacing the phone screen recruiters used to do by phone. I find it way less personable and I’m never able to represent the best version of myself in them. I seriously wish they would get rid of these

We did that for a while at my company as a preliminary interview similar to a phone screening. If we liked the way the candidate presented themselves we would then bring them in for a face to face interview.

M1, why did your company stop the recorded interviews?

I think a number of candidates refused to do it or seemed to be confused by the process (this was pre-pandemic as well before some people were comfortable using the video process). Plus, I think HR thought it would take some of the workload off of them but I don't think it did considering the effort they had to put into getting someone to record the answers.

I did one of these and they are off putting but unfortunately that is the way now. I’m sure it’s a cost costing way to screen out people..it’s annoying…
