Best Employee Screening Software We Have Found

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-02-04
Review Source: Capterra

It’s been excellent once we figured things out. We couldn’t be happier.

Pros
Their products are great. But the best thing about this company is they very prominently place their phone number at the very top of their home page, and when you call it, someone knowledgeable actually answers, no need for any prompts, waiting, or voice mail. Who does that? Initially we were frustrated, but this was mainly our fault. We tried to save money by paying individually for each assessment we administered. Well, you don’t save money this way, and it also means you have to pay if you want to take the assessment yourself. You also think 3 times before administering it. Finally we got smart and just paid for a year. That took the money out of the equation. Now we could take them all ourselves to pick and choose which assessments were best for us, and we also send them now to every candidate. Much better. But then things got even better when we realized they could customize assessments just for our business, and at a very reasonable price and quick turn-around. No now we have our very own custom assessments and we use them constantly. It’s been a total game changer. They also don’t insist on a sales call prior to letting you sign up and trial, like most other companies do.

Cons
The price. But to be fair, when we comparison shopped, they were even with everyone else. Initially we thought they were cheaper because they offered a per-assessment fee. But this is a false economy.

HR Avatar Review

Review Source: Capterra

HR Avatar is very helpful in screening applicants as it can determine where applicants are having a hard time dealing with and it also shows the potential risks upon hiring the candidate. It makes the job of HRs easy and efficient. Though I think the price can be adjusted. Other than that, I have no other problems. Kudos!

Pros
This software has helped our recruitment process big time since everything is digital already and doesn't need any papers. It is also very friendly for applicants as well.

Cons
To be honest, the price for each test can be very expensive for an exam.

Response from HR Avatar


Thank you, Joshua! We appreciate your feedback about price. Actually, our analysis shows that our prices are slightly below the middle-of-the-range for reputable competitors. Unfortunately, there are many less reputable providers who do not take sufficient care with their assessments and who tend to compete strictly on price.

HR Avatar was our company's first experience with pre-employment HR testing & it was exactly what we needed! Comprehensive results and a clear interview guide made the tests helpful for the hiring process, but also the site is very user friendly, easy to navigate, and it's an excellent value for the price! Highly recommend.

Pros
Ease of use, clarity of test results, very comprehensive.

Good Value That Provides Quality Results

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2019-11-13
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The software is affordable for small to midsize companies. Don't let the price fool you, you still get a detailed report that evaluates the key attributes for the position. I also like that the results are immediate and we receive suggested questions for the interview to probe further the areas of concern. I have yet to find a test that didn't match a role I was interviewing for and the identification software is terrific. So far the software has been a great predictor of performance for us and as a result we are budgeting to continue the service next year.

Cons
I haven't run into any issues with the software or the results and I have administered a couple dozen tests to date. Overall I really like the product.

Perfect Assessment Testing for Employment Candidates

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2017-07-13
Review Source: Software Advice

We used Wonderlic and Criteria Corp. While both are great services, HR Avatar offers easy set up and easy to read metrics. What we really like is the ability to work with HR Avatar to design custom validated tests.

Pros
This is a fantastic product that allows our recruitment firm to effectively assess our candidates for technical and "soft" skills, helping us match the perfect candidates for our clients.

Cons
You have to pay for each individual test out of the box. However, I'm not sure that's really a con because the pricing model allows for scalability and HR Avatar will customize a flat fee upon request.

Pros
The time it saved us. It´s much faster that a candidate takes the exam online and it´s corrected automatically rather than making him/her come to the office and the correcting the exams.

Cons
It´s expensive and candidates do not always reply

Response from HR Avatar


Thank you for your review, Mariano! We're constantly told that we are much less expensive than our comparable competitors. And yes, it's always hard to keep candidates interested. One thing about our tests though is that they make a great impression on candidates through the 'day-in-the-life' job simulation. Our approval ratings from candidates are over 99%!

Don't hire anyone without HR Avatar!

Review Source: Capterra

I wished I had known about it earlier. It would have saved me the time, effort and the cost of some poor hires! I've used it with two companies that I've been at and got my wife hooked on using it for her company. She swears by it as well. The alternatives to HR Avatar that I looked it were far too expensive for the smaller organizations that I've led. HR Avatar provides objective data that when combined with subjective interviews gives a much fuller picture of a candidate. With HR Avatar I can hire with confidence.

Pros
It works! HR Avatar is easy to administrate and it provides assessments for numerous types of positions. Most importantly, I've found the assessment reports to be incredibly accurate and the suggested interview questions very helpful in employee candidate selection.

Cons
Truly, no negatives with HR Avatar! It works as advertised.

Great Pre-Employment Tests

Reviewed 2016-11-16
Review Source: Capterra

We really like that there tests simulated a real world working environment. We felt that this gave us even more confidence that if someone scored well on this test that they would also do well on the job. Have to say deciding to administer pre-employment tests prior to conducting interviews has been by far the best HR decision I have made for our firm. Truly takes out the guess work on whether someone is a good fit for the job. We have hired our first candidate who do well on their test and will keep you posted on whether they work out or not. Thanks again HR Avatar.

Pros
Simulates real world environment Easy to use Extensive test results with interview questions

Cons
Interview questions are not always relevant to what needs to be asked The per test model is nice if you have narrowed down the candidates but expensive if you want to test lots of people and/or test for multiple positions.

Thanks for the review, Michael. We also offer a subscription pricing model and I'll reach out to you directly to discuss some options.

Review Source: Capterra

We researched candidate assessment vendors for a year before selecting HR Avatar. The team at HR Avatar was responsive, experts in the business, and by far, the most cost effective. The assessment is interactive and a direct reflection of the job. The candidate gets a feel for the job and we get a feel for how successful they may be in the job. Our hiring managers and HR recruitment team love the detailed interview reports that are provided. We have shared this product with other divisions of our organization who are seriously considering also using.

Pros
Easy to use for employers and candidates. Results are accurate! Candidates reveal traits in the interview that were revealed in the assessment results.

Cons
Nothing. Has been a positive experience!

Review Source: Capterra

I come from big-city experience and became the publisher of a small-town newspaper. Everything I thought I knew about effective vetting of job candidate was useless here -- the talent pool and approach to hiring are very different. We researched for months trying to find a testing service that would meet our needs and not cost us the proverbial arm and leg. HR Avatar totally fits the bill. I'm blown away by how accurate and detailed the service is, as well as the attention to detail and tools they provide to help you follow through. Customer service is fantastic. They listen and help. I can't speak highly enough of HR Avatar.

Pros
Ease and accuracy.

Cons
Took some time to fully discern how accurate the testing is; some of the reports aren't immediately intuitive. But that's a very small concern.

Response from HR Avatar


Lou, Thank you for your review! Also, thanks for the feedback on the phone today. Based on your comments, I requested some tweaks to our score report format to help make them more intuitive. Should be live in a couple days. Let us know what you think. Thanks - Bill

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I like the questions asked when i sampled it as it was business scenarios but also tested the areas of interest (i.e. critical thinking, analytical, problem solving etc). This is why I chose it over the other platforms. It has business questions versus abstract questions.

Cons
The HR Avatars slowed it down and I'm not sure if it added any significant value. I found it to be feeling less professional and more like a kids game. But the first few questions asked were good as far as i could tell by doing the test myself. The biggest issue i have is that there are no sample questions in all the areas they test in order for me to determine if this is good test for what i need. The only way to do this is I had to take the test myself. Unfortunately I didn't have 45 minutes in my day to finish it so I had to waste a test. When i had my candidate complete it, the candidate did not do well in one particular area which we found very surprising given how well the candidate did in the interview in this exact area. When I asked for some sample questions or just key concepts tested for, I was advised by customer service they couldn't do anything for me and couldn't provide me with any additional information. Therefore, I cannot verify the relevance and validity of the questions asked. I advised the customer service rep that this would deter me from buying again and I never received a response. The only way i can consider using it again is if i pay for a test and take it myself fully to determine if it is a good test for the job I am recruiting for. I likely won't be doing that and will need to find another provider.

Response from HR Avatar


Thank you, Seema, for the candid feedback. Unfortunately, we don't routinely share individual questions for our assessments, and we doubt that any reputable provider does so. We do, however, share the competencies measured on our website, and we often work with customers to help them understand exactly what is measured in each competency. We are sorry you did not have a good experience with our customer service representative and will take action to prevent that from happening again. We would love to have a second chance to earn your business.
