    This is a question that I can answer based on my experiences as technical and non-HR interviewer.

    I’ve interviewed few candidates recently for upcoming projects and I had recorded every sessions. I recorded my interviews session so that I can:

    • Assess myself as an interviewer
    • Re-watch again the video in case I’d missed any details
    • Compare one candidate against the other by re-watching back the video and see their performance and pick the best candidates
    • Recorded video interviews will be saved in resume repository for organization future reference and shall any upcoming project is looking for resources – they can refer to this recording which also will cut down the interview process

    I also attended few video interviews session before. Here are the things that we can evaluate in an interviewer during video interviews:

    • To see if the interviewer is ready and have read candidate’s resume before-hand
    • To see the way the interviewer’s dressed because this might reflected back on the company’s culture
    • To see the interviewer’s gestures and facial expression. One can gauge the interviewer’s personality based on this. Hence, interviewee can predict if he/she will work well alongside with the interviewer
    • To see if the interviewers are giving his/her full attention and attentive during the interview session
    • To see if interviewer not doing anything that might distract the candidates eg holding phone, chatting with another person in the room
    • To see if interviewer had the ability to calm down the candidate and make candidate feels comfortable
    • To see if the interviewer is asking all the right questions within the allotted time
