“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.”

“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.”

Andreea Hrab

HR Director

OSF Global Services

“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.”

Service Credit Union

“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.”

“Our staffing agency switched from ProveIt to eSkill several months ago and we haven’t looked back since. We have had no technical issues, the software library and customized tests are beyond everything we need, the reporting is extremely comprehensive and most importantly, none of our test takers have complained! The eSkill tests are very user-friendly which has increased compliance drastically. Highly recommended!”

“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!”

Janet Bryan

District Manager

Universal Staffing

“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.”

Dixon Hughes

“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.”
