Industry experts highlight below things candidates hate about the hiring process.
If the job ads ignore candidate needs: When the job advertisements focus more on an organization needs and don’t talk about the candidate needs like pay benefits, personal growth and work-life balance, then top talent will not apply. According to the experts view candidate centered job postings receive many more quality applications than employer centered job postings.
If the interviewers coming later for the interview: Candidates who wish to seek a job in a company will be on time and expect to see the same from the interviewer. The candidate will also expect the interviewer to go through her/ his resume could create an encouraging environment rather than reading the resume while sitting at the table.
If there is no feedback: Candidates expect the feedback at every round of interview. So, it is important to offer timely feedback to the candidates.
If there is no response to candidate’s application: Job candidates hate the hiring process when there is no response from the employer for the candidate’s application.
When there is long interview process and waiting period: Many candidates believe that interviews that goes long and take-up a lot of candidate’s time will distract from their current job. Some firms takes 30 to 90 days time to finish hiring process, while it projects your organization as slow, ponderous, not very dynamic, and way behind the times.
If the interviewer not engaged with candidate: Candidates get engaged with the companies where interviewers engage with the candidate with humility and courtesy.
If the interviewer exhibits I know it better attitude: An interviewer should appreciate listen, acknowledge and appreciate achievements of the candidate rather than asking what the candidate does not know. It is also important to say warm good bye as warm welcome that carries a good impression about the company and work culture.
