The Total Testing Process

Total Testing is here to help you. Start by browsing our customizable list of online pre-employment skills tests. We have a wide range that covers an array of industries, behaviors and skills at three different levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced.

The Top Four Benefits of Customized Testing

Customized test creation has a host of benefits for both hiring managers and job candidates. As an employer, you’ll be able to more confidently make hiring decisions knowing that your new employee is up to the task and has the skills, behavioral traits and knowledge that the position requires. As a qualified candidate, they’ll have the opportunity to showcase that they’re the right fit for the role through measurable data.

The ability to customize each test ensures that they’re asking relevant questions for the specific job at hand. Customization offers plenty of advantages for an HR professional — here are the top four:

  1. Use your time effectively: You want to maximize your time rather than wasting unnecessary hours reviewing, interviewing or even hiring poor candidates. By administering customized testing, you can find out early in the hiring process whether the candidate will be a strong addition to your company. Along with specific skills testing, you can see whether they’ll be a good personality fit for the role and company culture. As a result, you’ll be able to narrow the pool and pursue only candidates who have the potential to succeed, saving you precious time.
  2. Cut hiring costs: As you likely know, hiring can be a costly business. Beyond the process of recruiting, interviewing and onboarding candidates, you must also provide training once these individuals are hired. Customized hiring tests will allow you to weed out the weak candidates from the strongest ones, saving you money during the hiring process and during their future job training.
  3. Understand each candidate’s strengths and weaknesses: Customized skills tests offer employers invaluable insights into each candidate’s areas of strength and weakness. With this measure of where they excel and where they could improve, you’ll have a deeper sense of your their capabilities — and how they fit with your company’s needs. This knowledge can help you make more informed decisions about where to invest training time and what each candidate can offer.
  4. Get exactly what you need: Customizable tests will ensure that you’re targeting your specific hiring needs. You’ll have the ability to add, remove or edit questions as you see fit or modify the test-taking parameters. The results will therefore be fine-tuned to your open position and give you insight that’s designed to help you make each and every hiring decision confidently.
