The biggest benefit is to filter out 10s - 100s of candidates to fit a particular style of work that you are hiring for. It is a huge time saver for that feature alone. - Behavioral Analysis is great to filter candidates - Building an ideal candidate profile - Easy to sort through and determine which candidates are a good fit - Simple to use for the potential candidate

This software helps me screen candidates and saves a huge amount of time when trying to decide the right fit culturally and professionally. It's the first stage of our hiring process and the results on candidates is quite uncanny!The next level of info it gives me on potential hires & the accuracy of the results. Plum results are integral to our hiring process. The customer support and training is awesome and I love that it's a Canadian company.

Ability to pinpoint the exact types of personality for our team' desires. Timeline to shorten our screening process with 1000s of resumes. The ability to save exponential amounts of time on screening candidates for our roles. The ability to understand humans more and more after reviewing their profiles.

Results are genuinely helpful in assessing strengths and weaknesses of potential hires. Based on the Big Five personality traits, I have a high degree of confidence in the validity of the results. The additional hurdle of completing the survey effectively filters out unqualified applicants. Customer support is excellent -- they are very open to sharing additional information and spending time with you to ensure you understand what you need to know.

Hiring not only the most qualified candidates, but also being able to choose those most similar to our current rockstar team.Love the current format. I know there is a new platform in the works, and think based on the videos that this will be amazing!! Love the idea of being able to compare multiple future hires next to each other. Think this will work well with trying to figure out who to hire when you have multiple candidates to choose from.

It's like an applicant tracking system and way easier to sort through all the applicants than email. Also, like how hiring managers can be involved in shortlisting the candidates and resumes are all there too.

Easier and higher quality hiring. Plum really helps surface the top candidates - including ones you might not otherwise consider. It makes it really easy to review great candidates without going through hundreds of resumes. It also makes interview prep easy by identifying areas where you might want to dig deeper with the candidate. It even helps with onboarding by identifying coaching opportunities for the candidates!

Easy to use - so simple to set up a new job/role profile in Plum and have multiple members of your team fill out key criteria for the role. Plum then takes all of the priorities and combines them to help you understand what you're looking for overall. We tend to do it in teams (of hiring managers for a role) because it can also help highlight discrepancies between what managers are looking for or expecting.

see prior review comment.The results. This tool helps us focus on key areas to verify strengths and weaknesses of candidates. It has helped us hire and helped us focus additional diligence on areas of concern that way may have otherwise missed. We negated at least one leading candidate because of Plum and this was a great decision.

- Love the tailored interview questions - Helps us better understand our hiring expectations, then easily see if a candidate aligns - We use it as a second step in our hiring process. It's a really great screening process to filter out anyone who's mass applying & get to the serious candidates quickly! - Speeds up our hiring process x 10 - we identify candidates we want to interview in a day or 2.
