We struggled with hiring "smart" people. So, ‘pre-hire assessments’ were a necessary part of the hiring process. We needed to know exactly who’d match our hiring criteria and be the best fit. We found a test that would help us with finding the right candidate, but it was in paper form. So, we had to schedule interviews that would require us to block an hour of our day. People would do terrible on that test. So, it was clearly a waste of time.
Now, as part of our pre-screening process, we send them a link to the same test that we create using ProProfs, and if they do not meet our minimum score requirements, they are eliminated from a face-to-face interview. This approach has saved us countless hours over the past 5 years.
It is easy to create and share tests in ProProfs. And, due to its mobile device compatibility, candidates can take tests anytime they want. The results reach us in real-time. So, it also saves them an extra trip to our office.
Using ProProfs online assessment software has made our hiring process so much more efficient. As the owner of the company, I can spend much more time on revenue-producing activities than in the past. The program is very easy to use.
We are now looking at how we can add a mechanical and electrical quiz to our pre-testing process using ProProfs. We are extremely confident that this will produce the same type of satisfaction for us.
