Can I see the interview questions in advance?
No, just like a face-to-face interview you’re not given the questions in advance.
Can I re-record my answers?
The employer decides whether you will be able to re-record your answers or not. The number of recordings per questions is shown in the interface. Please note, if you decide to re-record, your previous recording will be discarded and cannot be used.
My audio/webcam is not working. What now?
Before attempting anything else, try using an alternative browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox. Please check if you have allowed the browser to access the microphone/webcam. If it still doesn’t work close the browser completely and restart the interview by clicking on the interview link.
If I need to quit or lose my internet connection mid-interview, what happens?
You can use the same interview link from the email to return to the interview. You will be prompted to complete a webcam test again (Mac/PC only) and will resume from the point where you left off. You will not start from the beginning.
If I move forward to the next question, can I return to the previous one?
No, once you have moved forward to the following question, your last answer will be saved and you can not go back.
Do I get a link to my completed recording?
You can only see your recording before you submit your answer and advance to the next question. Once you have submitted your video interview, you can not access your recordings anymore.
How long can I take to complete my interview?
The interview deadline is communicated in your invitation email as “apply before”. The link will no longer be valid after this date. You may take as long as you need for the interview once logged-in.
My interview link is ‘expired’. What now?
This means the due date for your interview has passed. If you would like an extension on your interview due date, you will need to contact the company you applied to with this inquiry.
Where can I get support if needed?
If you’re experiencing issues during your interview, you can click on the ‘help’ button to access a detailed help section. For immediate help you can use the Cammio support chat. You can also contact Cammio support via email.
