A candidate survey is a set of feedback questions that a candidate can submit anonymously about a completed interview process. In aggregate, candidate surveys can help your organization assess your recruiting efforts and ensure all your candidates leave with a positive impression of your business. Additionally, by collecting consistent data and actual quotes from candidates, it's possible to point to real evidence that shows how resistance to participation in the hiring process is holding the organization back from being awesome at hiring.

Note: Greenhouse Recruiting does not collect "date sent" data for candidate surveys in order to maintain anonymous survey responses.

The candidate surveys report displays the total number and percentage of candidate surveys completed which represent all submissions within the selected offices / departments. Changing your date range will not change this total.

Note: Percentages in any column are rounded up or down to the nearest percentage. Due to this rounding, an individual row may potentially exceed 100%.

Candidate comments and notes on the survey aren't viewable inside Greenhouse Recruiting. In order to view candidate comments and notes on the candidate survey, click the Download Download icon icon to export the report to Excel.

The candidate surveys report can be filtered by the following:

  • Department
  • Office
  • Submitted between

Note: By default, the submitted between field for the report is set to the current year.

Note: While using the 'submitted between' filter will not change the total number and percentage of surveys completed, the results in the report will reflect the data of candidate surveys submitted within your selected date range.

Click Apply after applying any filters to your report.
