Pros: It is easy to use and has an accessible price point. It is straight forward for users as well. The calibration / setting up of templates with clients is a valuable exercise.

Cons: It is less in-depth than some of the other assessments out there (they are pricier). It's not "fool proof' testing.

Overall: It is a good reference point to aid in a difficult conversation with candidates

Pros: The ease of use; click a few criteria and you are good to go! The the ability to communicate with the candidates directly from the software.

Cons: The 'suggested questions' are vague when the candidate is off the curve. Would suggest either making them more relevant to the position or take them out as a separate report and we can choose to refer to them if necessary.

Overall: Makes the selection of a candidate easier and confirms fit to a team / organization based of facts not just gut instinct.

Pros: It is user friendly. It provides a report that is specific to the applicability to the skill sets. Our field employee can read their report and identify take away's for goal setting and career development

Cons: I don't have any cons. If there were one it would be getting incumbents and managers to provide feedback to build company specific benchmark data

Overall: We typically use the Prevue for candidate sourcing . We are advancing to career development and goal setting in 2018.

Pros: The report process and the interview notes that are generated and can be utilized to narrow in on "trouble" areas or concern areas of a candidate

Cons: Generating the reports is not always straight forward. It can be dependent on the testing given which can cause confusion on which report to generate

Overall: If gives a great base line for the type of individual you are looking for during the hiring process

It's been a useful tool during our recruiting process.

Pros: The value we get for the investment of the software. We've found Prevue just confirms our decisions that we come to during our interview process.

Cons: Some of the reports seem identical. Would like to see a bit more variety in the data. The software is also a bit hard to catch on to when creating the positions.

Great, well tested tool. The custom benchmarks make it hands down a necessity for unique roles.

Pros: Ease of use. It is super easy to send a candidate a link to complete the assessment and review/understand the results.
Custom benchmarks. Again, it is super easy to create the custom benchmarks needed to evaluate the candidates against the ideal profile for the role. The custom benchmark allows for a better match of candidate to your specific needs as opposed to your candidate to a generalised idea for that role.

Overall: Got great insight into the potential development support needed for new hires. Avoided a potential bad fit hire too which saved us thousands of dollars in onboarding and training.
It seemed too simple when we first tested it out. After learning more about the methodology on the back end and testing it out further, we had a better idea of its accuracy in predicting performance.

I have used the Prevue Assessment for over 20 years. It is accurate and reliable. I recommend it.

Pros: I was very impressed by this company's response time with questions and concerns. Each person I spoke to was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I was pleased by the ease of implementation and navigation through the various actions in the software. The software performed as promised with no hiccups. I also enjoyed learning about the process and the skills attributes measured within the assessment. I also thought that the pricing model was competitive and worth the value.

Cons: I think that the dashboard could be a little more user friendly for those that aren't used to applications such as this but it did not pose a major issue for me.

Overall: This software was used to aid in the selection of management level/specialty roles that we rely on to manage our team and organizational processes. It was beneficial to be able to develop benchmarks with which we could measure the skills and attributes of the final sets of candidates that we interviewed. It was not used as a final determining factor but as a aid in our final decisions.

Pros: Easy to set up and administer. We used to do them via paper with a timer and booklet the candidate had to complete and I had to manually score. This is much more efficient!

Cons: Not really a dislike, but it was a bit of a learning curve and I have to go back and check my notes when setting up a new position and getting the benchmark ready. I just don't do it all that often

Cons: with changes to resume tracking system it took a little while to learn to navigate, but have since learned some shortcuts, etc

Cons: French accents don't carry over when copy and pasting from a Word job description. Instead of having job specific questions, have a question bank where individual questions can be added.

Pros: The things that I love most about this software is the results that you received from the tests that are conducted. There is a lot of selection in the type of test to conduct to match the role that you are trying to assess for and I think that is very important as well.

Cons: I wish that the software was a little smoother to use, I find that without using it on a daily basis that I lose some of the important steps. It would be nice if the process was more simplified

Pros: Easy to manage test results, and track usage and history of usage by department. Prevue team is very receptive and good with clients when they want to set up new benchmarks.

Cons: Sometimes there are issues with self-registration tested. Can't export more than 200 test results at one time. When you put in 'from' date for looking at history of tests taken it sorts immediately before you get a chance to put in the second date and then push search. Then you need to back and put in the second date to get the timeframe that you want.

Overall: Assist clients with their hiring process and using this product as one of the steps they take. They are pleased with the results of the quality of the candidates that they hire - due to the steps they use to screen in and out candidates - - - one of those steps is the Prevue test.

Cons: As a user not being aware of the cost implications for my company. If I want to go back and add some more testing requirements for someone who has already completed one assessment, it would be good to know on screen what the cost will be, so I can easily decide if it is worth it.

Overall: The ability to compare employees across the years and develop different training strategies for different people.

I've found that using Prevue is easy to do, I learned the system very easily.

Cons:
Candidates sometimes have an issue logging in to complete the testing, but it has not been an issue with the test or format of instructions. It is the candidate not following accurate instructions.
I would like to be able to add in additional questions to make it specific to our organization and the culture of the organization.
Finding out what the stressors are for them at work, what kind of management style that they can an can not thrive being managed under.

Pros: Having it cloud based is much nicer. That way if needed we can have candidates do the surveys prior of after an interview from their home computers.

Cons: Having automated reminder emails to have staff manager fill out to JDS surveys until they have completed them would be helpful. It would allow the software to do the pestering as opposed to the HR people.

Overall: We have had a huge red flag. This software helped support my feeling from an interview that didn't go well. However the hiring manager was eager to hire them.
