Using Pre-Employment Assessment Testing to Screen Applicants

As much as we’d like to be able to rely on first impressions, often, an hour-long job interview is just not enough for you to get to know your candidates. If you add in pre-employment assessment testing to your interview process, however, you will be better able to understand the personality types and behavioral responses of your candidates. This can, in turn, substantially enhance your candidate selection and pre-employment screening process. At AIR Pre-Hire, our assessment test includes six categories and can help you determine whether or not your applicant is a good fit for the position.

Pre-Employment Assessment Testing

If you add in pre-employment assessment testing to your interview process, you will be better able to understand the personality types and behavioral responses of your candidates.

Why Use Pre-Employment Assessment Testing?

The main purpose of pre-employment assessment testing is to help companies to identify those candidates that are most likely to perform the job well. If you take all the necessary steps to ensure you obtain the perfect candidate for the position, your company can benefit in the form of saving time and cost in the selection process, decreasing employee turnover, and improving employee morale.

Tips for Using Pre-Employment Tests

Take a look at the following tips to help you ensure that you are getting the most out of your pre-employment assessment testing:

  • Although pre-employment assessment testing is a valuable tool, you shouldn’t rely only on their results to choose candidates. Background checks, employment and education verification, and reference checks along with the interview are all important as well.
  • If going through an outside company to administer your tests, do your research. AIR Pre-Hire will be happy to explain our six-category tests and answer any questions you may have.
  • Ensure that your test questions are not overly personal and do not have the potential to offend someone.
  • Give tests consistently to all candidates to reduce your legal risk and the chances of an applicant claiming discrimination.
