What is the Hiring Manager Review stage? How do I add it to my Interview Plan?

Some companies want to include a secondary application review step and allow a Hiring Manager to view the candidates that initially caught a recruiter's eye. In cases like this, you can use the Hiring Manager Review stage to add a another review step to each of your jobs. This can also be done in bulk. 

To set it up, head to the Job Setup > Interview Plan page, scroll to the bottom, and add the special stage to your job. Drag the stage where you want it in the flow (usually right after application review), then make any changes you'd like to the Interview Kit. 

This stage is tied to the Hiring Manager role on the Job Setup > Hiring Team page.

Any Job or Site Admins with this responsibility will see the number of applications within the Hiring Manager Review stage under the Applications to Review section.

You'll also notice the special Hiring Manager Review stage within the sidebar on the job's dashboard as well:

    Is it possible to add a second level of review, like this, but that everyone who is a job admin can view/access? So I don't have to make everyone a "hiring manager" for a job.

    Hi Kim,

    Thank you for writing in! We currently do not have that feature, but I can definitely send your feedback to be discussed with the product team! As a workaround, we would suggest having the job admins take over the app review tasks while a hiring manager then takes over the Hiring Manager Review Stage. Let me know if you have any thoughts or questions!

    Best, Thai

    I'm also interested in collecting application review from people on my team who are not hiring managers!

    Hi Alf,

    Thanks for reaching out! You can add as many application review stages as you'd like. All you have to do is go into Job > Interview Plan. From there, you can click "Add Stage" at the bottom of the page. You can select "Application Review." After adding the stage, you can edit it's name to reflect what the application review stage, such as "Team App Review."

    Can a recruiter submit multiple candidates to a hiring manager at once if they are all on the same job?

    Hi Victoria,

    Thanks for writing in!​

    Users with Site Admin permissions can bulk move multiple candidates to a particular stage like Hiring Manager review all at the same time. However, if the recruiter doesn't have Site Admin permissions, the recruiter would have to move the candidates into that stage one by one.​

    If you'd like more clarification just email support@greenhouse.io​ and we'll be happy to talk more about your specific situation!

    Is there a feature that caps the number of candidates that can be reviewed at one time at 50?

    Hi Kristina,

    Yes, there is a cap of 50 candidates if you view them through the Candidates tab. (We only fit 50 candidates per page.) However, if you view them through Application Review, you should be able to view all the candidates. I've emailed you a more detailed response!

    Please let me know if you have any more questions!

    Best,
    Lucia
