Pre-Hire Achiever Applications

Does this sound familiar?  Have you ever hired someone who appeared in an interview to be the best candidate for the job, only to learn later that individual was just a good talker?

Today people are groomed in what to say and how to act in an interview, thus an interview is not a truly objective way to evaluate what a person is really like and is an artificial situation. Background checks are good, however they reflect the past behavior of an individual and lack an ability to accurately project the future.

If we cannot count on the accuracy of data obtained in the interview and recognize that the past may not be a predictor of the future, the question remains, “What is available to the employer on an independent, objective basis that will give a good, clear picture of the candidate for a job?” The answer is a good test or assessment. The Achiever Assessment series tells the employer:

  • Which candidates an employer should be most concerned about hiring
  • Which candidate fits the job best
  • Which candidate is the best choice for transfer or promotion
  • How to focus training and managing an employee to success in the quickest, most effective manner.

Additionally, the Sales Achiever ascertains whether an individual has the personality to build relationships, negotiate terms, and ultimately close the sale.
