Application Score: The score obtained in their Job application (0-20 points).
Face to face score: The score obtained in their personal interview (0-30).

Pipehire has a built-in Interview tab where the applicants can be scored. Face to Face score using this questionnaire plays a vital role in the process of hiring new cleaning employees.
