better than ever before.

Pros: It helps us make solid hiring decisions. We have a minimum benchmark score for applicants. We can also consider areas of importance such as attention to detail, and whether the applicant is more suited to a customer facing role or a technical role.

Cons: There is a learning curve, but the support is always there to help interpret the results. I do highly recommend.

Overall: We use their software assessments to assist in hiring decisions. We have learned the hard way when we don't follow our benchmarks it can come back to haunt us.

Pros: The great testing results in great hires. I have used the tests for 19 years and won't hire without testing first. Results have been exactly what I found the employee to be like after working together.
Considering the cost of a bad hire, this is a great deal.

Cons: That I need to do the test myself in order to see how the employees working with me will fit into the culture of the company. But it always pays off to see the whole picture

Overall: Great to have so much software at one place

Pros: We use a few assessments that provide critical information in weeding out applicants who would not be a good fit for the position we are hiring for or for the company. I know using these assessments have decreased our employee turnover rate.

Cons: I am very happy with the software. The only thing I can report negatively is maybe less promotional emails.

Overall: Hiring help

The software helps us to determine whom to hire and not to hire.

Pros: They can customize test to cater to each of our job openings, detailed test results, which are broken down into multiple categories

Overall: This software has helped us hire 5 new hires and counting!

We found excellent candidates through their analysis process. Highly recommend.

Pros: I like the ease of use of the software and the quick and easy set up they help you take care of.
I like the quick turnaround times after that new potential hire takes assessment tests.
I like the fact that you can talk to staff to get more input on the results of the tests.
The entire staff at new hire talent is awesome to work with.

Cons: The only thing I do not like about the software, is that it's not a bulletproof way to hire or not hire an employee. You have to use it as a tool and utilize all information gathered and then make your decision.

Overall: I got a better sense of the person I may be hiring.

We have had wonderful customer service and find the process simple and user friendly.

Overall: Ability to screen a candidate before I meet with them in the office. Saves time and gives me a better picture of their aptitude for the position being offered.

Pros: Seemed to work well, give results expected. We don't have a dedicated HR person or tech position on our staff to help with some of the finer details. With our current staffing levels, we just didn't have the manpower to be able to use the program to it's fullest.

Cons: The layout of the final results could be laid out in a more easily understood/simpler way. We most likely needed more training and to have done more research about ow to implement results from this software.

Overall: It's a good start for us to determine if a program like this will be useful to us and to see if we can implement it as we grow. Right now, I think our company is too small to reap real benefits.

Hiring is the most important thing I do and Hire Talent helps me make better decisions.

Pros: My favorite feature is the automatic results and score breakdown. It's incredibly useful for us to immediately see how a candidate performed on the assessment and is very helpful for the interview process.

Cons: I think the dashboard could be redesigned to be more user-friendly. Sometimes when I haven't used the software for a few weeks it takes me a few minutes to find the correct assessment.

Overall: after 12 years of no hiring the software was extremely beneficial in our process

This has been a game changer for us in the hiring process.

Pros: It helps one ask better questions to the applicant based on the test results. It has saved us from hiring the wrong type of person for the position

Cons: There aren't enough tests to test unique positions that we have had to hire so we have had to make due with what tests they have available.
