The challenge: more flexible, time-saving and reliable candidate screening
The foundation of success lies from the talented and motivated team of experts and newcomers. This team builds Goodgame Studios continuously, with several hundred positions per year; a challenging task for the HR department. Originally, the Hamburg-based game company conducted telephone interviews as its first step. This not only took a lot of effort, in terms of coordination, but even the phone interview itself took a lot of time and could not be shared between different decision makers.
The interview suite makes screening easy and a timesaver
Goodgame Studios quickly chose to use the interview suite. Scheduling in the preselection process is now much more pleasant: candidates and recruiters can determine on their own the date on which they perform or review the interview. The review of the video interviews also offers huge time savings compared to telephone interviews. The web-based software not only fits perfectly in the innovative environment of the technology company, but also provides its recruiters with a fast, flexible and transparent recruitment process.
From trainee to manager – the interview suite is used in many ways
The recruiters at Goodgame Studios use the interview suite for a very wide range of positions and areas, including business development, project management, marketing, event management and in the IT and development area. Candidates come from both Germany as well as from the international arena. In terms of process, the pre-recorded video interview replaces the telephone interview, and sometimes the first personal interview.
Better decisions, enthusiastic candidates and time saved
After hundreds of video interviews, Malte Weinert, project manager of the video interviews, can draw a first summary: “The interview suite is a really easy to use and versatile tool that helps immensely in the application process.”
Time relief through video screening
Extra flexibility for international candidates
Transparent decisions and better personal interviews
A timesaver for recruiters
Malte Weinert emphasises: “The pre-recorded video interviews can extremely relieve the time of our recruiters and multiple decision makers.” A first impression of the candidates can now be obtained in short 5 to 10 minute video interviews and not during a time-consuming personal interview. This saves an enormous amount of time and relieves the calendar, creating enough space to learn about promising candidates in the subsequent interview.
Candidates are enthusiastic about the simplicity of the software and the flexibility of the interview. Malte Weinert hears this feedback repeatedly in personal interviews. Especially for candidates from abroad, the interview suite is a perfect way to interview comfortably across time zones.
More reliable screening
Recruitment decisions have become better and more reliable with the interview suite. Evaluation is of better quality and different decision makers can directly and transparently assess the interviews.
