    Pros

    We consider ourselves a company that continues to grow, we still need many talents in our company. We recently started using wepow given how small we are, we need many people and it has gone incredibly well!

    Cons

    The truth is that there are very few things that I did not like, but if they could improve on some things. It seems to me that the visualization in different devices is not very good, at the same time, when you export the information sometimes it fails.

    Even if you are not in the same room with the other person, WePow makes you feel like you were! It gives you the full interview experience and provides you the quality tools that you need.

    Cons

    The interface speed and the mobile capabilities could get better. When these two improve, WePow will be one of the best options!

    Pros

    I like seeing the video interview before talking with the candidates, and I can rate their responses so my recruiter can see them.

    Cons

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    I should be easier to edit the date and time when changes are needed due to a change in schedule by either party.

    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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Obviously this is not really an issue with the wepow software but sometimes the other person's video is low quality

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I spend less time scheduling interviews and sending invites to the candidates an to the interviewers (I could check their agenda from Wepow).

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Ability to communicate with candidates, individually and as a group - and showcase our use of technology in our work environment.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    This software provided an efficiency in our intern candidate review.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Ease of use for both candidate and customer. Not once have I ever had a candidate contact me and say there was an issue!

    Cons

    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.

    Faster and more comprehensive way to evaluate candidates...saved us from bringing in candidates for in-person interviews and wasting everyone's time.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Cons

    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
