VidCruiter stands out for being quite flexible. They offer a range of robust recruiting solutions that you can purchase individually or combine with one another as needed. It’s also available in seven languages besides English, both for recruiters and applicants.
VidCruiter is a video recruiting and applicant management platform built for medium and large-size companies. Recruiters and hiring managers can use it to post jobs, shortlist candidates, and screen them through live or pre-recorded video interviews. Candidates can view real-time interviewer availability and schedule interviews on their own. You can even allow them to choose the interview type (either live or pre-recorded), which we think is a neat feature to have especially if you’re working on improving candidate experience.
To speed hiring further, VidCruiter enables you to organize hiring events virtually and reach a wider pool of candidates with a branded employer landing page and targeted ad campaigns. These events are particularly helpful if you have several positions to fill and are looking to recruit globally; you just set them up and watch the responses roll in. You can receive multiple pre-recorded responses from candidates simultaneously and view them at your convenience. You can also choose to conduct live video interviews for deeper conversations.
To verify the quality of the applicants you are receiving, VidCruiter automatically sends out emails to candidates requesting for their references. Once candidates provide their references’ details, a custom questionnaire is sent to the referees to fill out and provide their evaluations. The system will automatically send out reminders to referees who have yet to submit their answers.
VidCruiter also facilitates proctored assessments for a variety of hard and soft skills, including language proficiency, Microsoft Office knowledge, typing speed, math, RFP simulations, and more. High scorers are automatically filtered out and moved to the next step in your process.
If you’re a startup or an SMB with infrequent hiring needs, you won’t really see good ROI numbers with VidCruiter.
VidCruiter is used by over 40,000 recruiters, including ones from Lowe’s, Lionsgate, Samsung, Bears, US Foods, and United Nations.
VidCruiter integrates with a host of ATSs, HRISs, job boards, background checking solutions, and more. Some familiar names include ADP Workforce Now, Workday, Oracle, Linkedin, Salesforce, and Checkr.
The pricing of VidCruiter’s solutions is not disclosed on their website and is calculated based on your number of hires. You can get in touch with VidCruiter’s Sales team for a custom price quote.
We recommend VidCruiter for organizations that hire more than 100 people a year, i.e. medium and large-sized companies and recruiting agencies.
VidCruiter does offer implementation support. To get started with their platform, you can send them your interview questions, guides, and other recruiting criteria, and they’ll help you create your first job post(s). What’s also helpful is that they’ll send some test applicants your way so you can assess your recruitment process and familiarize yourself with the platform’s functionality before dealing with real applicants.
VidCruiter’s customers are assigned a customer success manager (CSM) that can be reached by phone, email, or through VidCruiter’s built-in chat feature at any time. They also offer on-demand training services as well as self-guided training modules.
VidCruiter was founded in 2009, a little while after Sean Fahey (CEO) was tasked with hiring 200 people in a short period. He saw first-hand how traditional hiring processes can be slow and inefficient and from that experience, he set out to create a solution that streamlines how companies hire. That’s when he partnered up with Mike Wojcenovich (CTO) to create VidCruiter. Fast forward to today, VidCruiter is a well-known vendor in the recruiting space, with over 40,000 users from different countries.
VidCruiter is designed for medium and large-size companies and serves a range of industries, including retail, manufacturing, education, and health care, as well as government agencies and nonprofits.
VidCruiter doesn’t have fixed pricing plans. Instead, they tailor their pricing to each customer’s hiring frequency and needs. We recommend that you schedule a demo with a VidCruiter sales rep to get a price estimate as well as have them address any questions/concerns you have.
