After research and evaluation for a comprehensive and cost effective way to create online test for new hire assessments, we were delighted when we found eSkill. With easy to use features that help you either choose from a predefined test or produce our own, we are able to create, modify and edit tests quickly.
Elaine M. Coffman, SPHR, Director, HR Business Partner CRM NA
The wide variety and customizability of eSkill’s online testing allows us to pre-screen many of our candidates before they even get in the door. And this is key, because once a potential hire shows he/she possesses the skills necessary to do the job, our recruiters can concentrate on the second – and equally important – part of the screening process: the cultural fit. eSkill helps us assess a high volume of candidates in a fast, easy and efficient way.
Christa Foley, Recruiting Manager
eSkill has enhanced our pre-employment skills testing. With the large database of questions readily available, it is easy to create or alter a test to fit a specific position or department. The website is user friendly for both the applicant and the administrator. The people at eSkill have been extremely helpful and friendly on any question that has arisen.
As the fourth largest IT staffing company in the US, Sapphire (now Randstad Technologies) provides customized solutions for both public and private corporations. In 2007, Sapphire integrated eSkill with its website to administer tests to online applicants.
Kristin Kelley, VP of Marketing and Communications Randstad
At LG Electronics, we believe that pre-employment assessment is now a must-have to ensure that each shortlisted candidate possesses the required skills necessary for the post. So we researched the various products on the market, and chose eSkill. eSkill is a comparatively powerful assessment tool that helped us in assessing & comparing candidates’ skills to select the best one.
Islam Naguib, Recruitment Officer
eSkill is a powerful tool that allowed us to determine if our training classes were adequate and efficient. The ease of the website and the tools they give you to create exactly what you need are phenomenal! I would recommend eSkill to anyone.
Anna Simpson, Customer Service Trainer, Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade (QTG) – a Unit of PepsiCo
We did demos with maybe six other companies, and eSkill kept coming to the top, because of the flexibility, the integration into our Taleo application process, and then being able to use it in other areas of the company. Before, we had so many open loops that we couldn’t close because they were out of our control. Now, after integrating our Taleo system with eSkill, we’re able to move into the process immediately and we have scores in hand. It’s a 100% improvement in the time reduction.
Wanda Hatchett, Contact Center Scheduling Coordinator/Recruiter
eSkill helped us complete the circle in our hiring and screening process by providing a simple-to-use testing platform. This platform set the perfect stage to verify skills and abilities for applicants ranging from entry level customer service to senior level software engineers.
Seth Pickett, Associate Director, Human Resources
The testing went great! We loved the ability to create our own test from a bank of existing questions. It was a key part of our search process and we found an excellent candidate. As I said, we don’t do searches for technical positions very often, but when we do, eSkill testing will always be a part of it.
Bob Nichols, Associate Director
University of Maryland
We chose eSkill because it meets and exceeds our needs. eSkill is unmatched in its ability to manage franchise locations, customize and configure tests, and customer service. The platform makes test deployment fast and easy, while our dedicated account manager has been very proactive in making sure we get the most out of eSkill.
Jason Leverant, President and COO
Before using eSkill, we didn’t have a way of assessing software skills or administrative capabilities. Since acquiring eSkill, we can now quickly assess internal and external candidates. I especially like the dashboard feature, which provides a snapshot to the user. I also like the options for emailing results.
Tanisha Thibodaux, HR Generalist
We use eSkill to validate the nurses’ ongoing ability to interpret various types of rhythm strips correctly. We have been able to change the way we teach our rhythm identification classes, because we now have data related to the common mistakes made by our staff in rhythm identification or patient management.
Peggy Martin, MSN, RN, BC, Clinical Development Professional
We have been using eSkill now for over 5 years. Through eSkill we can consistently screen candidates and customize tests specific to our client unique needs. The tool is easy to use, quick to create new assessments, updates to new technology and can handle our volume.
Valerie Gordon, Strategic Talent Acquisition Manager
We have started using the E-mail Etiquette subject for testing various secretarial positions and are planning to roll this out for screening sales and reservation staff as well. We see any external form of communication from our staff to our stakeholders as representing the image of our firm.
Shebin Hassan, Executive Director
Our strategic partnership with eSkill has most helped us in terms of recruitment for jobs which demand very specific and measurable skills, such as that of an IT programmer. The specifically targeted online assessments helped us set up entire teams of professional programmers who have taken our business to the next level and have contributed to establishing long-lasting business relationships with our clients.We found that administering eSkill tests offered all the information we needed when hiring, and was a great economic solution.
Andreea Hrab, HR Director
OSF Global Services
eSkill provides Service Credit Union the opportunity to test prospective employees’ skills before they are hired or even interviewed. The software is very user friendly, and managers can create tests that meet the needs of their departments or branches.
Johanna L. Montgomery, Manager, Human Resources
Service Credit Union
We’re able to put together a relevant test within minutes, based on eSkill’s database of questions; the candidates have easy access to the tests, and the reporting options that eSkill offers allow us to select a small number of candidates to interview, based on their test performance. This has saved us countless hours of pointless interviews…
Carlos Dominguez, USAbox.com
We chose eSkill because we felt the various pricing options they presented were very helpful for our “as needed basis” and cadence of using the assessments. We have stayed with eSkill for about four years due to the importance they place on customer service and easy to use product interface. Training new recruiters on how to use the eSkill interface takes minutes.
The customer service was a very large part of why we switched to eSkill. From the time we first talked with Kevin Renner, we felt like we mattered. All of the people we have dealt with at eSkill make us feel like we are familiar to them. They recognize who we are and treat as a valued customer. With ProveIt, you get the large call center type service when you call. You’re a number, not a customer.
Janet Bryan, District Manager
Before eSkill, we did not have a formalized way to assess our candidates. As our company really started to grow in size, we started to notice the pains from hiring managers about the quality of candidates and recent hires. There was pressure to fill open roles as quickly as possible. There were a few instances of managers seeing that some new employees did not have the technical skills needed for positions. Once we started to use eSkill, we saw improved confidence when hiring and more qualified employees. Our managers were on board with using eSkill, mainly because we were able to work together to create specific assessments. All of the hiring managers were then required to complete assessments and provide feedback. Adjustments were made where necessary and we have not looked back since!
We are provided with a wealth of varietal testing for any industry we serve. The customization of testing is limitless, allowing us the flexibility to serve our customers’ needs. We highly recommend and stand by eSkill!
