About Shine

Shine is a cloud-based video interviewing platform that enables businesses to streamline applicant screening, shortlisting, recruiting, and more. Recruiters can set up interview questions for job roles and utilize white-labeling capabilities to promote brand value across customers.

Shine allows businesses to record video introductions to accompany job descriptions or contact forms as well as share links across various platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or email. Candidates can utilize the platform to schedule interviews, complete video interviews on multiple devices, review and rate responses, and add comments for hiring managers using a drag-and-drop interface. The live interview tool allows hiring teams to record interviews for future reviews, improving team collaboration across the organization. Plus, the values-based recruitment module allows recruiters to analyze candidates based on business values, requirements, and organizational benchmarks.

Shine comes with a REST application programming interface (API), which allows businesses to integrate the solution with several third-party systems. Professionals can utilize the interview scheduler to create events such as video or telephone interviews and group assessments, bulk invite shortlisted candidates via email, and review time slots as necessary.

I'm so pleased that we discovered Shine last year. The platform has added so much value to our recruitment process. It meant last year we could close applications early as we were able to shortlist a group of high calibre candidates quickly. It also importantly resulted in recruiting 80% female students to our tech programme as it provided us with an opportunity to dig deeper into candidates core capabilities.

The customer service that we have received from representative has been exceptional.Representative is always on hand to help, she is knowledge and ultimately a real pleasure to work in partnership with.

Pros

As a fast paced, people-centric business its important for us to make our recruitment process as personable and efficient as possible. Thats why we have chosen to work in partnership with Shine over the last couple of years. The platform allows multiple hiring managers to review candidates at their convince meaning the selection process can be opened up to a diverse recruitment group whilst still being managed in a timely manner.

It also allows us to get a good flavour of an applicants personality which can normally be really difficulty to get obtain from a CV.

Cons

In all honestly I don't think I can say that there is something that I least liked about the software. For SBG it's has done and is doing what we need it to do.

Shine Interview Software Review

Reviewed on 2019/10/17

Pros

Using Shine Interview software has improved the candidate journey for us at SEAO Talent Partners. It allows candidates to answer questions at a time convenient to them and in an environment they feel comfortable. Often when using the video interview as a stage within the recruitment process it replaces the need for a first stage interview. Therefore it takes pressure off both the candidate and hiring manager to meet face to face for a first stage interview, saving time and money for both parties. Also, using the Shine Interview software I have found that it helps save time as it shows who is serious about the position they have applied for.

Cons

I have found the Shine Interview software to be very user friendly and have had minimum issues when asking my candidates to use it. Many candidates aren't use to a video interview being a part of the recruitment process so therefore I have found some resistance when asking candidates to complete it and I have even had some candidates refuse to do it. However, for those that do complete it have found it to be a overall positive experience.

Response from Shine Interview

Hi Heather,
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback, we really appreciate your lovely comments.
We're so pleased to hear that the Shine platform works so well for the team at SEAO!
We fully appreciate that there can sometimes be some resistance from candidates. For many, video interviewing is still a relatively new concept. Over time, it will become more and more accepted as it becomes the 'norm' in many recruitment processes, meaning that there will be less resistance over time.
If there's anything the team here at Shine can do to help you improve your engagement and completion rates, please let your client success manager know as we'd be more than happy to help!

We have used the software for various recruitment projects. Overseas recruitment is the area I have seen the most success, using Shine to market candidates to prospective clients.

Pros

Shine software is easy to use and flexible which has offered us the opportunity to use it in traditional and bespoke ways. We have used Shine is particular recruitment drives and seen stronger and more profitable results from doing so.

Cons

I don't have anything negative to comment upon. The challenge is always candidate engagement and getting a high completion rate. The team in Shine work closely with us to improve this on an on-going basis.
