Pros
Having a dedicated support manager at Criteria has been clutch in helping me come up with the best assessments for what I'm hiring for--it's great to know I'm not alone.
The easy scheduling system they have to reach out for someone to help is amazing and put the options in your hands.
I love that I can search for a job title and it recommends test banks to use, which saves us time. It is intuitive to use, especially nice for hiring managers that aren't in it all the time.
Cons
The lack of integrations. This also can just be specific to be.
All round good experience, concerned that our non first language English speakers seem to do badly on the aptitude testing.
Sometimes it's hard to set up a new test battery when I don't need to do that for a while. I think I finally figured it out for next time though.

Excellent Product

Reviewed 2 years ago

Criteria has allowed us a great tool to qualify candidates to progress through or be removed from our hiring process.

Pros

Consistent and easy to use. Provides us a good method to reduce the amount of candidates in a fair way. The ability to select different tests for different jobs. And, the ability to create our own tests to use for promotional purposes.

Cons

There are so many features. Sometimes you have to drill down a few menus to get to some of the details.

HireSelect helps me screen and find the best applicants to hire.

Reviewed 7 years ago

The typing test and computer proficiency test helps me weed out unqualified candidates quickly and easily. I can also evaluate aptitude with the Criteria Cognitive Test, and I can see a correlation between that score and quality of work.

Pros

The variety of assessments help me choose the best fit for each position. I can evaluate a number of different levels, aptitude, personality, or specific skills.

Cons

If I wanted to integate the results with my ATS, I would need to upgrade to a fancier package. Now, the price is cheap for the service, but I don't know why I would have to upgrade just for an integration.

Good service, brilliant idea and workflow, questionable claims on desired results

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

The concept is great - relatively easy, short assessments for potential candidates. Great workflow and communication. Good Criteria team and onboarding/response support.

Cons

The claims about the quality of hires are vastly overstated.I think their intentions are very good, but they really don't have a handle on whether the product and workflow actually works as they state. The process for modifying assessments to hone a better process is vague or non-existent. In the end, it appears to be a generic assessment across a very broad range of industries and jobs (in our case sales roles)

Vendor response

Hi Paul, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with Capterra. We're thrilled to hear that you find our concept great and appreciate the ease of use, short assessments, and excellent workflow and communication. Our team is focused on providing top-notch support throughout your onboarding and beyond, and we're glad to know that we've met your expectations in this regard. We also appreciate...

Take hiring to the next level

Reviewed 6 years ago

Customer service has been fantastic, ready to help or explain at a moments notice (Support team is fantastic). The results are fairly easy to get used to and measure. I like that we can create acceptable result levels and compare online.

Pros

Scientifically backed results that really do level the playing field for candidates (and existing employees) when trying to put the right person in the right seat. Paired with a solid interview process and testing abilities, the cognitive and personality profile tests have been invaluable to make the final decisions in hiring.

Cons

Unless hiring a large number of people, the per test cost is a bit high. Also seem to be sharing costs with services and technology that I am not using.

Great tool in the hiring process

Reviewed 6 years ago

The people I've dealt with have all been very helpful and responsive. The site was easy to use and helped save us time and money in our hiring process.

Pros

Using the testing online has helped us to narrow the selection pool of candidates and saved us valuable time that would have been wasted on interviewing less qualified candidates.

Cons

The new upgrades are more complex in my opinion and have more than I need, so makes the site seem more tedious to navigate. The old site was easy and straight forward.
