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.

The total number and percentage of candidate surveys completed 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 icon to export the report to Excel.
