From skilled tradespeople, such as plumbers and HVAC technicians, to landscaping, cleaning, and pest control experts, all the way to home health care professionals, the home services industry (sometimes called the field service or in-home maintenance industry) is a huge economic sector that faces a distinct set of hiring and management challenges. Find out how Hire Success® can help your in-home maintenance business with field and home services pre-employment assessments.

Improve your first-time fix rate by finding employees who have the right skills and knowledge in the first place. With our pre-employment skills tests, you can quickly and easily shortlist top candidates.

One major home services industry challenge is finding field service management and employees who can not only do the work but also serve as the face of your business. We can help you identify the ideal personality traits necessary for any role (such as patience, for home health workers). Then, by using personality testing, you can ensure that new hires will be a good fit.
Because your employees are working in customers’ homes – often alone and unsupervised — you need to be sure to hire people you can rely on. Our personality assessment and integrity test are field service hiring solutions that allow you to screen out behavior that could lead to loss of property (your own or a client’s), loss of business income, and physical or financial harm to clients.
Hire Success® offers multiple pre-employment tests that home services businesses can give to job candidates. All can help you confidently narrow your list of applicants and improve the quality of your interviews. Plus, you have the option to create your own custom skills test that includes questions specific to your field service business, including specialized knowledge and software.
This tool can help you find out whether your in-home maintenance applicants' character traits are best suited for a particular job. For instance, can they work independently? What about as part of a team? How organized are they? How would they react to an angry customer? Can they adapt to new situations? Get the answers with the Hire Success® Personality Profile.

The integrity test helps you discover how honest a job candidate is, as well as any risky behaviors. Could they be trusted in a person’s home? Could they be trusted collecting payment in the field? Do they have a history of drug or alcohol use? Are they likely to be violent or aggressive? Before you decide between applicants for a job, check to see who’s least likely to hurt your business.
