Easy, Efficient, Effective Interviews
Criteria’s Live Interviewing solution is an “interview assistant” that can be used with any live interview, whether it’s in-person, over the phone, or over video. It serves as a guide to enable interviewers to easily follow a process of asking the same questions and submitting objective ratings on an anchored rating scale.
Live Interviewing is a device-agnostic tool designed to make it easy to conduct structured interviews, your way. This means you can use it during your in-person videos, phone interviews, panel interviews, or video interviews alongside your existing technology, like Zoom, Skype, or Teams.
Build a structured interview in minutes
Select from a library of interview questions and set up your own templates to target job-related competencies and behaviors that are critical to the success of your roles. Or add your own questions specific to your unique job requirements.
Get hiring managers up to speed
Hiring managers can quickly see what questions they should ask, along with evaluation guides for how to evaluate each response. This makes it easy for hiring managers to adhere to a structured process.
Keep your information organized
After each interviewer has rated a candidate, the platform combines the results into a final score report. No need to spend time collating messy results from different team members.
Make a confident decision
Review the results and compare candidates, all within the Criteria platform. When used alongside Criteria’s assessments, you can access all your key hiring information in one place.
Structured Interviews Lead to Better Talent Decisions
Structured interviews are two times more predictive of job success than unstructured interviews. A structured interview involves asking the same job-related questions to every candidate, in the same order, with the same evaluators, and then evaluating each of the candidate’s responses with an anchored rating scale.
The result is an interview that quickly gets to the heart of a candidate’s job-related skills and abilities, while reducing unconscious bias and leading to better quality of hire across the board.
Less Bias. Better Outcomes.
Structured interviews are more objective, more fair, less prone to bias, and have less adverse impact than unstructured interviews. This is because structured interviews level the playing field for all candidates by allowing every candidate to answer the same questions.
A Better Experience for Candidates
Impress your candidates with a fair, objective, and organized interviewing process. Candidate satisfaction is higher when candidates know they are being assessed fairly and objectively, which leads to lower candidate drop-off rates, better candidate experience, and a boost to your employer brand.
Easy to Use. Easy to Adopt.
With Live Interviewing, you can quickly build structured interviews that are highly repeatable and scalable. This comes in handy when rolling out a structured interviewing process across teams and departments. The platform takes the burden off of hiring managers and interviewers by giving them ready-made tools to follow a structured process, provide evaluations, and review results.
