Time saving for my talent acquisition team and great value for the price!

2021-07-08

Pros

Good tool to take the legwork out of doing references

2020-01-21

Completed a lot of reference checks in a short amount of time, gained some valuable insight that helped facilitate decisions.

Pros

Reduces internal recruiting or HR time in conducting reference interviews, also eliminates the hassle of chasing contacts down.

Cons

Some confusing features like their statistics, also a lot of the canned reference reports do not include technology or recent / current skillsets and could use an update.

A great time-saver and a nice interface for our company to look tech-saavy.

2020-01-30

Teachers, social workers, bus drivers.

Pros

Ease of use to both the applicant, reference provider, and the employer's report configuration.

Cons

Not sure that it has great predictive ability in identifying who will be the best employee, but it certainly does beat calling people on the phone and trying to chase down a reference.

SkillSurvey Review

2021-07-13

Skill Survey is easy to set up and to use.

Pros

We're just getting started with the post hire surveys, but the information we've obtained so far we've been able to modify our on-boarding processes to provide top notch customer service to our new employees as well as the hiring managers experience with on-boarding.

Cons

I would like to be able to use the texting option with the integration with our ATS, ApplicantPro.

Best Purchase for Team

2020-03-02

Very positive creates more freedom for the recruitment team to connect and find new talent.

Pros

No more tracking down people's references and trying to ask them questions about previous employees.

SkillSurvey Reference

2020-01-30

We mainly use SkillSurvey to receive reference reports for candidates, but we also use SkillSurvey Source for our recruiting needs.

Pros

This tool is allows my organization to receive candid and thoughtful reviews of a candidate while also maintaining the privacy of the reference. The reporting gives valuable insight into a candidate and we have made many of our selections based on the candidate's SkillSurvey reference report.

Cons

I honestly cannot think of anything. I am a very satisfied customer.

Ensures quality reference data

2020-02-05

We've been using SkillSurvey to streamline our reference process and ensure that we get candid feedback. I have been impressed with the level of detail references have provided through the software as opposed to the more old fashioned way of calling.

Pros

It has sped up the reference process tremendously, and provides simple reports for me to share candidate information.

Cons

The UI and dashboard took a little getting used to at first, but improvements have been made over the last 5 years we've been using the software.

2020-01-21

I, however, have had no luck with getting my questions answered--through the portal or via phone.

Pros

that it gives you a passive candidate pool

Cons

you can't re-finalize a report unless you get X amount more references

SkillSurvey works well.

2020-01-30

Pros

I like that it's easy to enter a reference into the system and monitor how many people have responded and the questions that are asked and covered

Cons

I wish when you finalized a report that it immediately opened the advanced report, I always look at that version so I wish that it automatically added more information into the report when you hit finalize.

Works Well

2020-01-21

The customer service is great!

Pros

I like the auto reminders to applicants and that it is mobile friendly - also the functionality to customize the dashboard to our needs.

Cons

I think that the flow of the site could be more user friendly - personally I think it can take a while to load the survey options.

SkillSurvey transformed the reference check process for us.

2020-01-21

I was very thankful for that feature at the time.

Pros

I love the fact that there is a percentile score for performance. This makes it easy to see how candidates stack up against industry specific data. 3.

Cons

In addition, I filled out a review on a competing reference check for one of our former employees and was interested to see that I was not able to provide all top scores for the employee.

Museum of Science Review

2020-01-22

It makes the reference checking process painless and provides honest feedback in a very easy to read/understand format.

Pros

The turn around time is so quick and the reports are easy to ready and decipher.

Cons

We have very unique positions and sometimes we aren't able to find a survey that covers everything we're looking for. But this is rare.
