Once you've decided which of the available candidates you want to pursue further, you'll likely want to schedule interviews (see Selecting the Interview Team and Scheduling Interviews). The typical interview process includes a first interview and, possibly, subsequent interviews. Each interview typically cycles through the following four statuses:
Once you select To Be Scheduled for a candidate, the next step is to select the interview team members. In the Manager Review stage, you can select the interview team members yourself, or you can let the recruiter do it. Typically, the recruiter also sets up the schedule for each candidate and interviewer, although you can do this as well.
Once the interview is scheduled, the status of the candidate changes to Scheduled but Not Held. Typically, the recruiter then notifies all team members of the interview schedule. If no interview has been scheduled after a specified number of days, Personic WebBench notifies you by listing the appropriate requisition in the Manager's To Do List on the WebBench Main page.
Once the interview is held, the recruiter changes the status of the candidate to Interview Held but No Feedback in Personic Workflow. He or she then collects feedback from the interview team members and enters it into the system (you may do this in Personic WebBench as well). If the interview team's feedback has not entered the system after the specified number of days, Personic WebBench will notify you by listing the appropriate requisition in the Manager's To Do list on the WebBench Main page.
On reviewing the feedback from the interview team members, you can decide whether to reject the candidate, arrange for another interview, extend an offer, or put the candidate on hold (which you may wish to do while interviewing other candidates before deciding whom to hire).
