Great Tool for Planning Training

Pros

We started using this software to plan our training needs for new hires. It has been a great tool for us. I like that we can use the credits that we purchase for any test in their database. If there's a test that I am looking for, I can reach out to our rep for a recommendation. The customer service is phenomenal!

Cons

The only feature that I would like would be more of an automation for tests that I use on a regular basis like one button I can click to send it out. Although, there is an easy fix...I set up my favorites lists and can easily send out the emails from there.

Response from EmployTest

Thanks Kristi for your feedback and using the tests. Will pass along your suggestion (one button click) to the team.

Employtest Review

It is a very useful tool when selecting candidates to interview for a position. Employtest has worked with us to create specific tests and a system that meets our needs in regards to the amount of testing we conduct.

Pros

I like that it is simple to use and test names and descriptions are pretty straightforward. Tests are short and to the point for candidates.

Cons

I wish that the schedule email test feature worked a little better. I have scheduled tests to go out before and candidates stated that they never received them.

Reasons for choosing EmployTest

EmployTest was able to give us what we wanted with ease of use and beat the price of the competitors that we received quotes from.

Response from EmployTest

We appreciate your comments about the simplicity and ease of use. Emailed test session can occasionally land in applicant spam/junk folders, but there are ways around that and we'll make sure you know the options.

Pretty decent tool

It has been fine to use, I have been using the tool since 2013.

Pros

It is easy to send links to candidates and has quite a few options for testing.

Cons

I wish there was more features for the Microsoft Office Suite - We test a lot of Outlook and the 365 is very difficult, so I test on the 2010 becuase it is more user friendly as I don't want to scare applicants away with the 365 version. Also,iIt isn't compatable with MAC products.

Reasons for choosing EmployTest

Ease of signing up and purchasing and it had the tests we were looking for.

Response from EmployTest

Thanks Stephanie for your comments and for being a customer for 8 years now. Our tests do work on the Safari browser but they don't cover the MAC Office version. Test topics are formatted for the PC version of Office We have test customization options for Microsoft Office tests, including Outlook, so we'll connect with you to make sure you can test applicants at the right level. We have hundreds of questions for Office so we'll create a test that hits the difficultly level you need (beginner->advanced). Thanks again for using EmployTest since 2013!

Pre-Hire Tests for Local Government

Overall, I have been very happy with the website, the tests, and especially the customer service. The staff is always responsive and more than willing to provide sample tests so that we can determine the test or tests that best meet our needs.

Pros

The online tests delivered by EmployTest allow us to ensure that our pre-hire testing process is non-discriminatory while providing a wide range of topics to meet the needs of an organization with over 30 varied departments.

Cons

Recently many email servers have been sending the test invitations to a high-level spam so that the candidate never gets the test. Then I have to go back into the system and send it to myself so I can forward it to the candidate from a city email. Could you copy the administrator on the invitation to save this step for us?

Reasons for choosing EmployTest

We did our due diligence by researching all online testing companies before determining that EmployTest best suited our needs. Our decision was based on reviews, sample tests, and interaction with the outstanding support staff.

Response from EmployTest

Thanks Brenda for your comments. Yes, our tests follow all EEOC guidelines (and DOL Uniform guidelines) to help you maintain a non-discriminatory hiring process. Our team will be pleased to know you selected us from the many testing options that you reviewed.
