Best Practices

Updated by Maddie Gilbert

When in the hiring process should I test my candidates?

We generally recommend testing applicants as early in the hiring process as possible to get the most value out of testing. This allows you to filter out the candidates that don't meet your cutoff scores and narrow down the list of people you'd like to interview. If you choose, you can retest your candidates on-site later in the process to verify their scores.

How much time should a test battery take for candidates?

We recommend keeping your test batteries under a total of about 45 minutes. While candidate drop-off is minimal, it tends to increase after the total test time lasts longer than 45 minutes. Learn more.
