WePow is a cloud-based video interviewing platform that allows companies to customize the interviewing process by enabling hiring managers to put together and send pre-recorded interview packages to candidates. Additionally, users can add promotional videos, transitional videos or forms for candidates to fill out additional information. Candidates can also upload any necessary documents, such as a resume. All pre-recorded interview requests can be shared via email or social media channels, with options for branding and customization.
WePow allows users to compare and evaluate candidates once interview responses are returned. Additional statistics show data points such as completion rates and candidate satisfaction rankings to improve their process. The solution helps users increase objectivity in recruiting process and reduce hiring bias.
Live interviewing capabilities (either one-on-one or with a panel), 24/7 email and chat support and multi-language support are also available.

It was easy to set up and use, with no technical issues when I used it. Instructions were useful and it made a stressful task that much less so.
I could not replay my interview responses. The video quality of the questions was also not the best, and could have been higher quality. There was some lag.
Ability to connect with candidates globally, although I usually use Skype instead.
- Sending interviews to candidates
- The mobile app is very good, really easy to use and responsive
- The support is generally good
- Scriptable emails
- Speed of interface
- Latency when recording video answers
- Upload interface for videos
- Lags behind Skype when being used for group chats
- Candidate document upload function is rectrictive
Michael from RentPath
I like seeing the video interview before talking with the candidates, and I can rate their responses so my recruiter can see them.
I think it should have a "done" button after I review the last response. When I watch the interview and complete the ratings, it just stays on the screen and I'm not always sure it's completed from my end. I think a "done" button with an exit message would let me know I don't need to take additional steps.
Del from G4S Compliance and Investigations
The benefit I like most is the ability to conduct a live interview with face to face capability. This personalizes the interview for both parties and provides a better means of making hiring decisions.
The ability to connect live with the person being interviewed. This allows both parties to establish a rapport and makes the interview as though they were sitting across the desk from you.
I should be easier to edit the date and time when changes are needed due to a change in schedule by either party.
Christopher from Airfield Supply Company
I hire people. Fast. Thanks again WePow, Airfield loves you!
WePow is a very well designed and thought out platform. You can tell they have really taken the time to build a quality product . Live Interviews have been awesome! That and the team is AMAZING!!! :)
Limited mobile capabilities. I would love to see better Live Interviews when using mobile devices to connect.

flexibility - most of our interviews are done with people overseas so we don't have to worry about trying to arrange face to face interviews across several time zones
As we have many overseas hires it is difficult to organise face to face skype etc. because of the time differences. Wepow saves us so much time and we can review the videos when we want.
Obviously this is not really an issue with the wepow software but sometimes the other person's video is low quality
Lauren from Colgate Palmolive Company
Wepow is extremely intuitive and is very easy to use. Barely any training was required so I was up and running really fast! I also like the sharing capabilities and how viewers can provide feedback in the system.
I wish there was a bit more customization options on the user side. It's great that there is a use of video capability, however, I had a tough time trying to bring this to life.
Daniela from Colgate
Employees number: 5,001-10,000 employees
I spend less time scheduling interviews and sending invites to the candidates an to the interviewers (I could check their agenda from Wepow).
As an administrator, scheduling the interviews, is really easy to manage the platform and also for the candidates and interviewers is really easy to enter to the video interview.
I like the interface.
I like that the invites have tags and that we could personalize our invites.
I want to send different invites to the candidate and the interviewer, and it isn't possible.
It's complicated for the interviewers to contact the support team when they have a connecting issue, because they have their time measure, and sometimes the support spend a lot of time.
Kerry from Intact Insurance

Ability to communicate with candidates, individually and as a group - and showcase our use of technology in our work environment.
The layout is easy to use, when viewing video responses everything I need is on the one page (form question answers, video response, rating, shareability). Super quick and easy to use for mass applicants.
Some of the reporting functionality could be updated. There's only an option pull data and not to select the data you want. For example: when I want to know the average rating all parties have provided on a candidate - the report pulls all scores entered and I have to filter and figure out the averages.

Saves time in finding quality applicants.
A fun and interactive way to do pre-screening. It eases the administrative burden of setting up pre-screening phone interviews. The system has a good way of putting the candidates at ease with some sample questions they can use and explanation of the process.
Hiring managers can be given access to view and rate the Wepow interviews, streamlining the hiring process.
You can create template forum questions but the preview does not allow you to view the whole question or the answers if it is multiple choice. If you have 2 similar questions you cannot tell which one you are choosing.
Chelsea from UVM Medical Center
The fact that I do not need to do as many phone screens is a huge plus. This helps short our time to fill.
Sharing the WePows with hiring managers is not easy. I wish we had a tool to make this easier to complete.
Candy from National Life Group
Employees number: 501-1,000 employees
This software provided an efficiency in our intern candidate review.
I really like how I can scan candidates quickly. I can decide very quickly if the candidate is someone I want to bring in for an interview. Much more effective that I a phone screen.
I would like to option to rate a candidate as neither thumbs up or down. There are candidates that I am ambivalent about on video, but may want to talk to them anyway. I don't feel right marking the highly or negatively.
WePow helps speed up the recruiting process. I can send a link in a matter of seconds and it helps me get eyes on the candidate. I can also forward on to my Hiring team for them to review.
Ease of use for both candidate and customer. Not once have I ever had a candidate contact me and say there was an issue!
Nothing glaring to share at this time in all honesty. From time to time there are glitches but I think they might be on the users end.
Things that i like most about this software is the fact i can so easily use it and look at all my favorite people doing interviews through my favorite interviewing tool!
The things that i like least about this software is not being able to extract data as easily as other competitors - ouch!
It is a faster filter regarding the basic requirements and It was able to have more assertivenesses.
I only had some feedback from candidates that couldn't accomplish the deadline because the email went automatically to trash and some of the videos didn't have a good audio.
The ability to share candidates with managers, but maintain a limit for bias and candidate quality.
Glitches within the system. A lot of my candidates had completed their videos, but missed one button and we are not able to see any of it. There have been a few times candidates have had to resubmit videos due to no audio, not their video being erased if not completed.
Faster and more comprehensive way to evaluate candidates...saved us from bringing in candidates for in-person interviews and wasting everyone's time.
It's intuitive to use, and the Help section has any answer you may need. It's easy to add evaluators and I like seeing that completion status on each candidate.
I wasn't able to mix written questions with video recorded questions. I may be doing it wrong or my Company may have restricted a setting.
Georgia from The Prince's Trust
Employees number: 1,001-5,000 employees
Hired plenty of volunteers and manage their application processes well on Wepow
User friendly, large widgets, keyboard controls easy to use , good analytic page (really user friendly diagrams, like that you can send SMS or email reminder invites (and edit these)
No archiving process - somewhere to store old interviews or invites away from your main feed.
Sometimes the app is a lot quicker at loading the videos than the website
Denise from Box
I like the ease of functionality with WePow. It helped us run through our pipeline much faster and monger in a good selection of candidates.
Sometimes it was slow to load when trying to view candidate's answers. It skipped through some video segments also. It wasn't regular.
We pay quite of attention to candidate experience, and we've heard nothing but positive feedback from that end.
Some of the admin tools are a bit wonky and confusing, building templates could be a bit easier and the tool in general could use a little help on the UX side.
Alia from United Allergy Services
It was a very easy way to get a large amount of interviews completed without having to worry about technical issues from other video chat applications.
It was very simple for everyone to figure out without wasting a lot of time. I was able to hop on and get working right away.
The email communication can be a bit too frequent, however, it doesn't let you forget about your reviews!
