  • Interview Central How-Tos.


  • SuccessFactors Recruiting Management.


  • A recruiting user can make a list of SuccessFactors HCM users who will interview the applicant. After adding a user to the interviewer list, a new Interview Assessment form is placed on the Interview Central tab for the user. The Interview Central tab is found under Recruiting in SuccessFactors HCM.

  • Interview Central is not an interview scheduling tool, and there is no integrated calendar solution for SuccessFactors Recruiting Management.
    Interview Assessment forms pull competencies from the requisition and allow the interviewer to provide a numeric rating and comments on each competency. Additionally, the interviewer can provide an overall thumbs up or thumbs down on the applicant, add overall comments, and possibly attach documents to their feedback.

  • Interviewers can only provide one set of feedback per applicant. Even if two separate interviewers give feedback, only one set of competency ratings will be saved for each applicant. Additionally, once an interviewer has rated their candidates, changing the competencies, rating scale, or reverse scale option in the Job Requisition XML will cause existing Interview Assessment forms to display incorrect data.

  • When a candidate has been identified for an interview, the recruiter selects the interviewers. Interviewers are added to the candidate’s application and interview requests are sent to the interviewers from the recruiter.
