Hello Elphers! I'm hoping to get some different perspectives on a rising trend I've noticed where companies are using video recordings throughout the interview process. Although I can see some positive use cases around training, from a candidate perspective, I've felt uncomfortable with my interactions with this in the past and would like to broaden my view. I have primarily seen this in technical interviews for engineering roles. Some specific questions:
- Is it acceptable for employers to record the first interview between a candidate and recruiter/hiring manager? Why?
- Would this requirement change your perception, as a candidate, of the role/ company if the recording was mandatory?
- What barriers (if any) does this create in the interviewing process, especially around inclusivity and diversity?
- Have you experienced this in the past? If yes, what was your experience like?
- Does the size of the company and type of role impact your opinion on when this tool should be used?
Appreciate any and all thoughts on this! Thank you
