Skill Survey is easy to use for our staff, candidates, and references. I can log into the site and add a candidate quickly. I find it easy to select the best survey for the position. When I am not sure which survey I want the little pop up windows within the screen help me select easily without leaving the page.
I love that it immediately emails the candidate. I love the dashboard! It makes it very easy to see the status of all of the reference checks I have in process, file completed checks, print them, and make any adjustments needed. I like how I can simply click one button to send emails to references who have not completed the process or candidates who have not entered references.
The site is easy for candidates to use from entering their references to checking the status to adding additional references. References find it quick and easy to use the site in addition to answering the survey questions.
A big bonus for me is being able to enter references myself for candidates who may not be able to .
I do not have any major dislikes. I think Skill Survey offers enough options to adjust things I dislike.
I would like a simple explanation of reference check results that we could send to hiring managers to assist them in reviewing the results. The recruitment team at my company use Skill Survey everyday, but hiring managers do not. It is a bit confusing to them with the bars and percentages.
I created my own write up to explain the results to managers based on information I have learned on webinars and documents available in Survey Library and Customer Support area.
Skill Survey eliminates the need for the recruitment or managers to conduct reference checks via phone or email. I find that references are more honest since they are not answering to a person, but rather a survey.
I also like that the references can select to hear about our employment opportunities. Our company loves employee referrals and I find this is an additional way to gather qualified candidates.
