Hire Request – Candidate Evaluation Setup

Overview

After the candidate profile is shortlisted, evaluation cycle starts. First step in the evaluation cycle is setting up and scheduling of evaluation. This section explains how the HR Manager can set up the evaluation for a candidate and make any changes to the setup recommended at the hire request level.

The evaluation setup at the hire request level is a “recommended” setup. It can be changed at the candidate level based on the performance of the candidate during the evaluation. Evaluation steps can be added (or) removed.

Once the HR Manager sets up the evaluation, all the members in the evaluation team are notified through email that a candidate evaluation is due. They can access the feedback from the “To Do” section of the user dashboard page.

HR manager (or) the Hiring manager can change the members in the evaluation team based on the availability of the team.

This flexibility allows the Hiring Manager tailor the evaluation process and hire a better candidate.
