Drawing from Huffcutt, Conway, Roth, and Stone’s (2001) taxonomy of employment-interview constructs, we hypothesized that asynchronous web-based video employment interviews would be associated with job performance and organizational tenure using a crowd-sourced sample of 75 employed professionals. We found that composite interview ratings and construct ratings of mental capability, knowledge and skills, applied social skills, and conscientiousness were significantly related to self-rated job performance. We also found that construct ratings of knowledge and skills and applied social skills were significantly associated with self-reported organizational tenure. Implications for web-based video employment-interview research and practice are discussed.
