Add in your own job specific tests

With Hire Success, you can design your own Custom Aptitude Tests to find out exactly how much job-related knowledge your applicants actually possess. You’ll be able to quickly and easily determine the extent of each person's knowledge and experience as it relates to your company, industry, and specific job requirements.

By tailoring your test to the position you’re hiring for, applicants are not only viewed objectively, but their skills and knowledge being evaluated are also applicable and appropriate for the job.

With Custom Aptitude Tests, you’ll avoid hiring candidates who don’t have the software, math, writing or other skills to do the job you hired them to do.

In addition to being able to add, change and maintain your own question databases, you’ll receive our Starter Question Database for free. You can add to, modify and integrate our starter questions in any of our templates, as well as create your own custom questions.

Easy set-up and administration

Easy set-up and administration

Creating Custom Aptitude Tests is simple. Each test is a multiple choice test, usually with 2-5 possible answer choices. Weigh the questions by assigning more points to correct answers in key knowledge areas, and fewer in areas that are less important.

You can develop as many different Custom Assessments as you like and administer all of them online, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Once an assessment is completed and submitted by an applicant, you’ll receive a link to the complete report via email in less than a minute.
