Candidate survey questions


There are 9 questions that make up the Candidate Survey. In order to allow for comparison against the average of all Greenhouse customers, the survey questions are standardized and cannot be edited.

  1. Overall, my interviewing experience was a positive one.
  2. My interview(s) started on-time.
  3. The position was clearly explained to me.
  4. The people who interviewed me were well-prepared and conduced.
  5. The interviewer(s) got an accurate sense of my strengths and weaknesses.
  6. I was treated with courtesy and respect.
  7. Overall, I found the interview process to be challenging.
  8. Overall, I have a more positive impression of the company having gone through their recruiting process.
  9. Is there anything you wish the company had done differently?

Note: If your organization has Greenhouse Inclusion and has elected to include custom demographic questions in the Candidate Survey, these questions will be appended to the survey after the standard 9 questions.

For each question, candidates can select the following responses:

  • Strongly Disagree
  • Disagree
  • Neutral
  • Agree
  • Strongly Agree


In addition, candidates can also leave comments for each response (except for the question: Is there anything you wish the company had done differently?)
