Pre-recorded interview questions-and the resulting answers-can give hiring managers a head start on selecting job candidates

With over 800 locations in 50 states, Fabrizio likes how HR can simply forward a pre-screen video link to interviewers. "It's really a win-win for all parties involved: It lowers costs for HR, it saves time for the candidates, and reduces travel time.
