An Easy and Seamless Process to Screen Technical Candidates

Pros: This software makes it very easy and quick to qualify candidates for a variety of different skill sets. There are a number of skills with pre-loaded questions and anticipated answers along with highlighted buzzwords to listen for. This helped tremendously for skills I am unfamiliar with as it kept me engaged with the explanations to determine whether or not candidates were qualified.

In addition, I enjoyed the ability to rank responses. Candidates who used examples to back their answers can be rewarded with a higher score.

Cons: While there is a number of technologies listed, there are still many which need to be added. In addition, I felt that the "Create your own test" was a little difficult to understand the first couple of times.

Pros: Low cost compared to other testing tools

Great customer support - they partner with you to learn your teams needs and work to meet them.

Easy to use and train on - doesn't slow down my recruiters and can increase time to submit

Cons: As a practical matter they don't have tests for certain niche technologies but they will work with you to come up with custom tests if you recruit on a technology they don't normally offer tests for.

Pros: I can customize for my clients exactly the questions they want us to screen for. The clients love the idea that they can have input in how candidates can get screened specifically for their roles, so we don't waste their time and we increase our value in the eyes of our clients.

Cons: I don't have any thing i did not like I am interested to see how the tool is updated over time. It is good now but I know the company wants to make it even more valuable to it's clients

Overall: Again the clients can be involved if they desire in the process also we can also just screen people ourselves very effectively with his tool if helped us out last month with a skill no other testing company had in place and we dialed in with excellent candidates for the client that they wanted to eventually hire.

Pros: It is really easy to use. It has a lot of options to select from to customize your interview questions. I like that you can save a report on the interview and also take notes during the interview.

Cons: Not being a software developer myself it is difficult to gauge if the candidate is qualified if they don't hit on one of the key hi-lighted words. Also, it would be good to specify number of year next to what is considered beginning, vs intermediate, vs advanced because our requests often specify how many years they require but they don't always correspond with the tools version of avg, advanced etc. I would like to have the ability to add additional notes in the results AFTER the interview has been completed. There is no way to go back in and edit your notes. I would like Front End, Back End and Full Stack seperated out because some of our roles require different combinations.

Overall: Provides me with the ability to ask technical questions.

Actually, you can add notes after an interview has been completed. If you go to the Review tab, you will be brought to the page that has all of the interviews you have conducted. If you want to add notes to an interview, select the individual interview and hit the Review icon and you will see the interview review screen. You can add new notes into the open field.

Pros: TechScreen is an excellent tool to help a Recruiter better evaluate technical talent. An additional benefit to using this product is the knowledge and enrichment that the Recruiter will receive. They will become more technically knowledgeable, more comfortable discussing technology, and build stronger credibility with the candidates.

Pros: its ease of use, having previously loaded screens from follow colleagues is nice feature

Cons: the express tests are maybe too easy. I need more advanced java and javascript related screens

Overall: its easy to use. satisfies our compliance with client and we can close a candidate on a single call instead of sending an assessment to candidate email.

Pros: Easy to use and the questions are so broad that they get the candidate talking and you are able to evaluate their communication skills as well as their knowledge on the subject.

Cons: The grammar for some questions is not right.

Overall: I'm required to do a Tech Screen on each candidate I submit to the client and this tool has saved time.

Pros: I like the fact that the questions are open ended. I also like that there are multiple answers that are acceptable for the questions proposed. It gives candidates the opportunity to be as detailed or not as detailed as possible.

Cons: I think some of the questions are more education/foundation based, as opposed to real life and practical. This is good for more junior developers or professionals who haven been out of school for too long, but for the senior folks, I don't think it is the most relevant way to screen.

Overall: I learned some more about the technologies that I screened for. I have an idea the types of questions that will be asked so I can make a seamless transition into the conversation.

Pros: What I like most about TechScreen is its ability to be customized. You can select tech stacks prior to getting someone on a call to have your screen ready to go, or can set up with a few clicks if you want to start the process!

Cons: The only con is that some questions are very "text book." What I've found with a lot of good developers is that they are very good at doing the work, but can struggle with some fundamentals because it's been awhile since someone has asked that for a detailed explanation on a certain area (Ex: TreeMap in Java).

Overall: TechScreen has made our process here at Judge seamless. I enjoy having it as a resource to help qualify candidates.

Pros: As a non-technical professional, it is quite useful to be able to utilize a technical screening tool this way. Our other options would be to send out a coding test via HackerRank for example and wait in hopes for candidates to complete it. This is instant, quite efficient and accurate. Simple and easy to use. Also you can customize your own screening questions to create your own test.

Cons: Some of the wording is confusing to candidates, both questions and answers. Other than that, it is a very solid tool to use for technically screening potential candidates for opportunities.

Pros: I like that the keywords are highlighted so I can focus on a handful of things that the candidate says while they answer the questions./

Cons: Candidates can get confused with the wording and will ask for additional clarification. I have to find alternative ways to try to word the question.

Also, when I try to create my own questions, there is no feature to highlight my own key words.

Overall: I like it helps screen candidates even for non-tech people like myself and it also helps me to go and find out more details myself.

Pros: The customization of the interview questions and the support of the product provided by the support team.

Cons: I have nothing to say negatively about this software...it infact, exceeded my every expectation. I wish I had more staff to hire to continue using the software!

Overall: The software was the best setup I've experienced. It was intuitive and walked me through each step. I was never left wondering what to do next or how to accomplish something. I had very few questions about the system because it was built with a genius mindset of ease of use and complete functionality. I was able to quickly setup the type of position I was hiring for and easily select from the questions pertaining to that job. The system is super smart and separates questions into categories of level of difficulty, because you may not be hiring for an engineer, maybe just an entry level tech support position. The software has it all for you built right in so you never have to create your own questions.
