Scorecard overall recommendation: No decision


The final question on any scorecard in Greenhouse Recruiting is Did the candidate pass the interview? which is an overall recommendation made by the interviewer regarding the candidate. There are five possible responses to this question, four of which are listed on the scorecard:

  • Definitely Not
  • No
  • Yes
  • Strong Yes

However, an overall recommendation is not required for submission and an interviewer can submit a scorecard for a candidate without answering this question. The overall recommendation when no answer is given will be considered a No Decision.



Greenhouse Recruiting does not require an overall recommendation for scorecard submissions because we believe forcing interviewers to make a decision about a candidate is inaccurate if no true judgement was ever reached.
