Ratings and Reviews
In the friendliest possible way, may I remind the authors of this software program that many people will be experiencing this digital interview methodology for the very first time and some - certainly myself, will be ill at ease and unfamiliar with this sort of technology. Having the opportunity to practice is very welcome, that is, checking the recording levels and ensuring that one's face is pretty much centered in the frame. However, when the message appeared that "your practice question will appear here" and the question in fact does not appear I found disconcerting and it made me question whether the software was operating correctly. This sudden jolt of doubt or uncertainty, moments before the interview is quite unhelpful when what one needs most is sense of calmness and tranquility. I suppose my interview was 'good enough' but the performance would have been stronger without that unexpected surprise. Then one of my answers got 'stuck' when uploading, caused the program to freeze up and it was necessary to call the helpdesk to get assistance in order to continue (and I used the latest model iPhone, so I don't think the device can be blamed). It's in the nature of interviews that they are unnerving, but formats such as these for use by the general public need to assume zero computing experience on the part of its users.
Very poorly coded, will inform future employers I am not Interested in using this program
I didn’t like anything about this software. I have been doing multiple interviews via apps like this and this one is terrible for multiple reasons. 1st reason, on the iPad the screen wouldn’t rotate to landscape, so I probably look sideways when the job watches the video!! My iPad stand only holds in the landscape position. When clicking through with a link (which doesn’t tell me a password) it doesn’t work, then prompts me for a login that I can’t even create. I had to log onto my computer (with no camera) click through the link to find my randomly assigned password, then go back to my iPad to do the interview. There is no redo like other interview sites I have used. You get one try and that’s it. The questions overlay over you screen in huge ugly yellow letters that is distracting. Their questions are coded wrong and instead of being underlined show <p> and <u/u> all over the place. The user experience is utterly bland and boring. Please go look at HireVue and see how much better it is. I hope I never have to use this again, nothing is more frustrating than having a difficult interface that makes your interview harder.
innovative solution to scheduling video interviews
In order to avoid meeting a prospective employer in "selfie-pose" with my arm outstretched, I had to fashion a stand of sorts and delicately balance my phone on it for best camera effect. Not the app's fault, for sure, but definitely something that should be considered when designing an app is how the user will use it.
There was one technical glitch when using the app ... after finishing my first question, the app shut down and I had to restart it. I'm not certain whether the answer to my first question was recorded and there is no feature to review your answers/recordings.
The primary benefit offered by the Rivs product is its convenience: the candidate can answer questions any time of day/night, and the employer is freed from having to coordinate a videoconference. But for a system that uses both audio and video, the process is quite cold and impersonal. I'd suggest that they find a way to make the process more interactive. Perhaps the employer could video record themselves asking each question. Perhaps the person who's asking the question could vary from one question to the next. Maybe the employer could assemble a panel for the purposes of recording the questions the candidate will answer.
My harshest criticism is that the Rivs product does not allow the interview to go both ways. The candidate is deprived the opportunity to interview the organization.
