Frequently Asked Questions

Have you got any unsolved questions after getting acquainted with our site? We are well aware of how difficult it is sometimes to deal with all the details of a new service. That is why the most frequent questions, which our users sent us, have been selected and answered in this section.


Is Playhunt a substitute for interviews?

Absolutely not. It is a beneficial addition or even replacement for CV. Our primary mission is to significantly simplify the process of selecting candidates.

Picture this: there are dozens or even hundreds of people willing to join your company. How much time do you need to spend before you could find someone who fits your portrait of the ideal candidate? With the help of Playhunt, you can do this several times more quickly and easily.


Does a candidate need to register on the site?

No. The site generates a link right after you compile a list of necessary questions. You can copy it and send it to candidates either by mail or directly in the chat. They just need to follow that link.


Will candidates be willing to go through such a nontraditional video interview?

From a candidate's perspective, Playhunt is much more convenient and less stressful than a regular interview. They can make a video recording from anywhere on Earth and at any time. To do this, they only need a device with a camera and a microphone. Sitting at home, in a cafe or office, with a cup of tea or coffee, they can always start recording the answers as soon as they are ready.


What is the difference between Playhunt video survey interviews and traditional calls in Skype, Zoom, etc?

These are entirely different things. Video call is an online version of a standard interview, while our video survey is an additional part of candidates screening. That is to say, the goal of Playhunt is to optimize HR processes and help candidates reveal their best qualities.

Video surveys save you a lot of time. During the period you make one call, you can send out your list of questions to dozens of candidates and, possibly, already get their answers.

They are much more convenient than the traditional ones. Some particular time, place, or condition will not weigh down any of you. Do you need to urgently pick up a child from school or take a pet to the vet? Our service will not interfere with any of your plans but will allow you to choose the most suitable time.


How can I prepare video interview questions more effectively?

Unambiguous and straightforward questions that do not require clarification are the most effective. They will let you know if the candidate has the necessary skills or work experience. More in-depth questions are worth leaving for a live interview. Then you can discuss all the points that interest you in detail.


What equipment does a candidate need for a video-survey?

A candidate doesn't need anything special for a video recording interview. A phone, tablet, or laptop that has a webcam and a microphone is entirely enough. The only thing worth paying attention to is the technical serviceability of the gadget. The stage of checking the sound and picture quality before starting recording will help the candidate in this.


What is the process of video recording interview?

Following the link, candidates get the preliminary information about the video survey: the company name they received this invitation from and the interview topic. Next, they will find some basic rules of how Playhunt works, so all the details about recording a video will be clear for them. After entering their primary data (name, mail, and phone number), they can check their equipment’s serviceability using a test recording. The last thing candidates need to do before recording their responses is to approve that they are ready to start.
