Fastest, the most accurate psychometric tool to date. Our organization did extensive research.

Ability to pinpoint the exact types of personality for our team' desires. Timeline to shorten our screening process with 1000s of resumes.

Pros

The ability to save exponential amounts of time on screening candidates for our roles. The ability to understand humans more and more after reviewing their profiles.

Cons

The length of time can be challenging for some people but as long as it's presented properly, it shouldn't be an issue. A lot of the competition have 2-3 hour tests while this is 30-40 minutes.

We use PLUM for a stepping stone in our hiring process and it is a very helpful tool!

The biggest benefit is to filter out 10s - 100s of candidates to fit a particular style of work that you are hiring for. It is a huge time saver for that feature alone.

Pros

- Behavioral Analysis is great to filter candidates - Building an ideal candidate profile - Easy to sort through and determine which candidates are a good fit - Simple to use for the potential candidate

Cons

- Monthly pricing doesn't seem right for this type of software. A per-job pricing would be ideal for the way that we use it. - Account management is simple, but seems lacking on a few features - It would be nice to have another section or custom sections for different stages of the interview process rather than just "shortlisted" and "hired"... Many candidates go through several stages of the interview and sometimes want to keep track of that.

Response from Plum

Replied April 2018

Hi Devon - thanks for this feedback, and for making Plum part of your hiring success! We've listened and added 3 new stages to our next release - Applied, Shortlisted, Interview, In Progress, Disregard, and Hired are all around the corner. For many of our customers who use an ATS we conform to - and integrate with the stages used here, to ensure a streamlined process across platforms and team members. To see the best value with Plum we encourage you to have any and all applicants take the assessment - whether or not you have an open requisite or job criteria. This will highlight rockstars in your talent pool, and give you a sourcing headstart when a new job is posted.

Plum is integral to our HR process. We do not even entertain meeting unless they have done a Plum.

Pros

It works. It is simple to use and it helps guide you towards what your criteria (soft skills) are for each role you are recruiting for.

Cons

The only thing that I can think of is the reporting is a little light as in numbers of people completed the assessment for the role, and how they scored. Printing role profile information is cumbersome

Gives us another perspective on how a candidate will fit into each role, and our culture.

Another tool to assess culture fit within our organization.

Pros

Multiple users able to create assessment criteria. Easy for the candidate to use. Gives the candidate a small report for completing.

Cons

Could improve the navigating/search functionality on the admin end. Detailed reporting available for each position would also add value. Wording on assessments can seem a little harsh when a candidate scores low. Interview questions are generic and guides are not auto generated, requiring extra admin work.
