A company's employees are its most important asset. Hiring and retaining the best talent is now more important than ever, and pre-employment testing helps you make more informed hiring decisions. The result is more productive employees, reduced turnover, and less time and money spent on hiring and training costs.
Unfortunately, setting up a pre-employment testing program can be expensive and time-consuming. HireSelect® is the solution: a cost-effective web-based system that allows you to implement a pre-employment testing program in minutes.
Check out the tour below to learn why over 3,000 organizations trust HireSelect for their pre-employment testing needs.
HireSelect is a web-based pre-employment testing system that features:
Implementing a successful employee testing program begins with choosing rigorously validated, job-related tests. HireSelect helps with test selection by recommending the right tests based on the US Department of Labor's O*Net database of over 1,100 job profiles. You can customize these test batteries by adding or removing tests based on the specific job requirements at your organization.
HireSelect contains a variety of aptitude, personality and skills tests and allows you to test candidates either remotely or at your place of business. You can set up a link for testing candidates on site, or link to the tests from an online job posting or the Careers section of your company's website.
Tests are scored in real time and the score reports are emailed to you and also stored in the Results section of your HireSelect account. Here the results can be viewed, filtered, archived and exported. You can also opt to make the hiring process "blind" with a feature that hides the names and email addresses of your candidates.

Score reports for each test will be different, but most skills and aptitude tests include both a raw score (number of questions answered correctly) and a percentile ranking that indicates how well someone did relative to other test-takers. Score reports for personality tests are generally a little more complex, but will usually contain percentile ranking for specific traits, and sometimes an overall score based on a weighted combination of some or all of the traits measured.
HireSelect provides powerful tools that help you analyze and filter through your results. You can better understand your applicant's scores by comparing them to the rest of your applicant pool, to national averages for similar positions, and to historical averages for your company. The tool also provides a way to set score baselines and custom filters for each role.
HireSelect also contains a basic test-authoring tool, TestMaker, that allows customers to develop new tests or adapt existing ones for delivery through HireSelect. TestMaker makes it easy to build tests that measure knowledge of industry- or company-specific content, and supports a variety of questions formats. Many customers use TestMaker post-hire, to measure the effectiveness of their training programs and diagnose retraining needs.
Since many customers administer HireSelect tests in the earliest stages of the hiring process, HireSelect also allows customers to create and deliver online job applications through HireSelect, and to gather resumes from applicants. So companies that don't want to pay for an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) use HireSelect as their one-stop online hiring solution. For bigger companies that use an ATS, HireSelect can be seamlessly integrated into most ATSs.
