A family member recently was asked to video themselves answering a series of interview questions rather than participate in a telephone or Skype interview. There would be no human interaction. From what I've read, an AI evaluates the results and determines whether you should be presented for the next step.
My family member declined the interview. He felt that it was a dehumanizing approach and indicated a company culture he would not enjoy.
I imagine this is supposed to save time and streamline the hiring process, but if the recruiter or hiring manager wants to hear the candidate's answers to the questions, they still have to watch the interview video. So what value is the company gaining and at what cost to the human factor?
What are your thoughts?
