Interview Types are used for each interview stage in the hiring workflow. Once created, you can assign it to an interview stage within any of your current or future job vacancies. They're templates that save you having to write out the same information multiple times.

Customers with an Enterprise plan can create custom hiring workflows, with as many interview stages as needed. Customers on the Growth plan only have one interview stage available.

They'll be presented with time slots to choose from the these will be spaced apart at the interval you specify here.

Select whether the interview is face to face, phone or video based.

Add instructions for the candidate, e.g. directions to the interview location, what to expect during the interview, any preparation that is required, etc.
