4 Reasons You Didn’t Get the Interview

Finding you are not qualified for your dream job is terrible, and it’s even worse when you don’t hear back until weeks later. At WorkStep we can relate, so we ensure candidates receive feedback as soon as possible! Let’s take a look at 500 random applicants not invited to an interview in the month of March 2018.


Here are reasons applicants were not invited to an interview:

Company-Specific Questions 68%

WorkStep enables hiring teams to automate candidate qualification (similar to a phone screen) for the most basic skills and responsibilities.

Work Experience 18%

Similar to company questions, we validate candidates have the right experience with each facility’s technology and equipment.

Availability 9%

Candidates tell us when they can work (2-clicks on a smartphone), and we ensure they find the role that fits that schedule.

Commute/Location 6%

Our release of commute preferences has enabled both candidates and employers to find matches closer to home.

WorkStep has created an hourly hiring network to benefit hundreds of hiring managers and thousands of candidates on a monthly basis (WorkStep is not an agency!). With the power of automation and research, we have developed a constantly evolving technology meant to improve and accelerate hiring.
