How applicants get marked as disqualified
Disqualified applicants are marked with large red D in place of a numbered prescreen score.
An applicant is marked as disqualified when they answer a prescreen question with a disqualifying answer. Here’s an example of a prescreen question with a disqualifying answer:
An applicant who applies to a job with this prescreen question and says they are unable to work evening shifts during the week will be marked as disqualified.
Viewing Disqualified Applicants
When you navigate to your Applicants page, by default you will only view applicants who have not been marked as disqualified. To view your disqualified applicants, you must click on the Disqualified link at the top of your Applicants page.
Your disqualified applicants also do not appear by name in your daily applicant summary emails.
What if I find a disqualified applicant that I like?
Once you take an action on the applicant — let’s say you invite them to an interview — they’ll move to your main applicants view.
You should also take a look at your prescreen questions and edit your disqualifying answers. On your prescreen questions, only mark answers as disqualifying that are truly dealbreakers. That way, future applicants who are similar to the applicants you’d like to consider are not disqualified and are visible right away.
