Losing top talent - making them wait.

As a service to our employer clients and their candidates Recruitment HQ surveys each person that goes on an interview.  The results give key information to our clients about how to motivate the best talent to say yes to their job, and improves the experience of our applicants.

One of the key scores is about wait time.  We asked our candidates to rate, on a metric of 1 to 5, how satisfied they were with the wait time to meet with the interviewer.  The average rating is 3.2, or 64%.

To understand what this means during the hiring process you have to look at the net effect it has on candidates accepting a position when offered.  

Not one candidate that rated interview wait time below 80% accepted the position they were offered.

The most talented applicants that visit your business for an interview expect their interviewer to value their appointment time.  In the same way an interviewer is unlikely to hire a candidate that shows up late for their interview.

Happy hunting for your next rockstar employee!
