“Great Product! Great Customer Service! Very User Friendly!”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

eSkill is easy to use, easy to organize, and easy to work with. eSkill has a testing platform for every situation you can possibly think of. I love using eSkill. It makes my job easier and helps me to get more done in a shorter period of time. Also, they were so helpful during the set up phase and allowed me to take sample tests without charging our account or using our test credits.

Also, there is an option to customize your assessments. They have tons of pre-written questions that you can pick and choose to create your very own customized test, and you can give it a custom name. It's like an assessment salad bar.

All you need is the applicants email address and you are good to go. Send the assessment and the rest is easy peasy. You will get a notification when the applicant completes the test. eSkill keeps all of the completed assessments organized for you. It's easy to go back and find for reporting purposes.

eSkill is by far the best assessment service out there. I would highly recommend this service to anyone that needs to test candidates for hiring.

What do you dislike?

I honestly do not have any complaints about eSkill. That's the truth!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an quality solution for your assessment / hiring needs, eSkill is your best option.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use eSkill for Microsoft Excel assessment. eSkill helped us establish a benchmark for this test, by allowing several of our employees to take this assessment for free. That was a huge help.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great Product

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to test our candidates on certain skills. It is easier for our candidates to take the tests and for us to pull results based on different formatting.

“Diverse with a large catalog”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

It is great that I can mix and match assessments together and add or delete questions for an already predetermined assessment.

What do you dislike?

There is a lot and it can be overwhelming. There is a lot I have to remember to do (copy a job, save a job, add my email address in to the system to receive notifications when someone takes an assessment...) and it would be nice if some of these things had a default instead of me having to manually do them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is a lot you have to remember when setting up a new assessment. Once you've done it, then you're good, but there is just a lot to remember to do.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assessments helps us to determine if what they are verbally telling us align with the assessment results.

“The Skills Library is Amazing!”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

ESkill has so many options, it fits any situation. With their Off-the-Shelf ready to use options based on Subject or Job and the ability to customize and create your own for unique or individual needs, there is something for everyone and every need. I also love the ability to review each question before making a decision on what you will use.

What do you dislike?

Their strength is a bit of a weakness. There are so many choices it can be overwhelming without help. But that's where their consultant and/or customer support is helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to know what you're looking for. With all the choices, it's best to think about the job and skills needed before hiring, and then choose the ESkill test(s) that support that.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helping clients create a stronger, objective hiring system so they know more information about candidates. This allows them to make better decisions and have a stronger on-board process. Benefits are clients are surprised less and go into a new employee situation with more knowledge and less emotion.

“eSkills is a must have!”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

I find eSkills a wonderful product to use. There are very useful tests and such a huge library to chose from. I have never found a subject that eSkills does not have a test for. I find the program very easy to navigate and use.

What do you dislike?

The library is so big that I sometimes find it hard to find the exact match that I am looking for. It takes some digging but I eventually do find it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Skills Testing let's me and my clients weed out people who say they have a specific skill but don't. It also allows us to figure out where more training is needed.
