You can reorder questions as you see fit after adding them, but before fielding responses. You will not be able to edit the position once candidates have started the interview.
Add questions and select question types using the methods below:
Choose a Question
Select from a bank of many pre selected questions sorted by category and subcategory.
Write a Question
Make one up on the spot.
Custom Questions Bank
Create your own question bank under settings and access them while creating a position. This is helpful if you have questions you ask frequently.
Toggle between video, written un-timed, and written timed question types.
What to consider in determining how many questions to ask:
- Stage in the overall interview process
- What criteria are you using to evaluate candidates
- Seniority of the role
- Type of position
- Estimated number of candidates
- Candidate experience required for position
- Complexity of questions
Interview Question Best Practices
Aim to have the candidate spend less than 30 minutes completing the interview (on par with a phone screen), while also providing enough information for recruiters to make intelligent decisions about a candidate’s abilities.
- Keeping the entire interview below 10 questions maximum
- 3-5 video-based questions
- Add few additional text-based questions if relevant.
- These are great for ‘knock out’ questions i.e. salary requirement, willingness to travel, relocation etc
Intro + Closing Messages (On-Demand Only)
These messages will be displayed before and after the candidate completes the interview. You can create a company wide message under the settings menu that will auto populate when creating a new position, and edit that template within each position during setup.
Toggle between the ‘Into’ and ‘Closing’ tabs to edit the text as you see fit.
