About HR Avatar

HR Avatar Pre-Employment Tests help businesses to identify the best candidates for a role by providing them with pre-hire employment tests to send out. The software is suitable for business of all sizes and can be deployed either in the cloud or on premise.

All tests in HR Avatar are designed in detail for specific jobs and are configured to accurately measure all the parameters required to contribute successfully to that job. All competencies and their significance are prepared through proper research specified in the Occupational Information Network dataset of the US Government.

HR Avatar tests measure candidates according to critical parameters such as work history, skills, knowledge, simulated job tasks, and cognitive ability. The tests are animated and include sections that judge real workplace situations along with an animated host for guiding the job applicants. Hence, prospective candidates find it like an actual job and enjoy the overall test process. The Test Score report features a 5-star rating score system along with numeric scores.

We offer Pay-Per-Candidate pricing, in which you purchase Candidate Credits online. A Candidate Credit includes everything you need to screen one candidate. A Candidate Credit allows you to test one candidate in one sitting using any test in our catalog and also includes Video Interviewing, Remote Test Proctoring, and Automated Reference Check for that candidate. We also offer unlimited plans based on company size, and special pricing for recruitment firms and educational/non-profit institutions. Please contact us for a quote if any of these apply.

Last year, I issued a few hundred candidate assessments; only one of them experienced an issue. Compared to other services, HR Avatar increased my efficient and significantly reduced inefficiency so that I could focus on my team while handling onboarding tasks.

Anytime I have ever needed assistance, the Support Team at HR Avatar has always provided a prompt response to address the question, concern, or general feedback submitted.

Pros

The software is generally easy to use. I take advantage of the Assessment Battery function to create a bundle of pre-employment tests into a single issuance.

Cons

There really is nothing that I do not like about this software. Though, if I had a wish, it would be to enable the ability to limit completion via mobile and tablet devices.

Response from HR Avatar

Thank you for your review, Todd! Do you mean that you would like to require completion on non-mobile devices or on small screen devices? That's something we have wrestled with recently. We would appreciate your thoughts.

Overall I really love th HR Avatar software. We currently just use it for the Pre-Hire Personality assessments, but are looking to use it for many other positions that we hire for. It has been a great resource for our hiring managers giving them the ability to identify good candidates faster!

Pros

I love how easy it is to view the applicants test results. It has a summary page that breaks down each competency and even goes into details. Very easy to read and navigate through. I also the animations before each test is given to each of our applicants. Great way to engage them before the test is taken.

Cons

I do not like how we cannot integrate the test into our current ATS. We currently use Saba Jobvite and I can automate the test link for applicants, but the data cannot be put into our ATS. We must get it from the HR Avatar site.

Response from HR Avatar

Thank you for your review, Glenn! We will be happy to investigate integration with Jobvite. We will be in touch!

Mixed Reviews

Reviewed on 2019/11/25

Pros

I like the questions asked when i sampled it as it was business scenarios but also tested the areas of interest (i.e. critical thinking, analytical, problem solving etc). This is why I chose it over the other platforms. It has business questions versus abstract questions.

Cons

The HR Avatars slowed it down and I'm not sure if it added any significant value. I found it to be feeling less professional and more like a kids game. But the first few questions asked were good as far as i could tell by doing the test myself. The biggest issue i have is that there are no sample questions in all the areas they test in order for me to determine if this is good test for what i need. The only way to do this is I had to take the test myself. Unfortunately I didn't have 45 minutes in my day to finish it so I had to waste a test. When i had my candidate complete it, the candidate did not do well in one particular area which we found very surprising given how well the candidate did in the interview in this exact area. When I asked for some sample questions or just key concepts tested for, I was advised by customer service they couldn't do anything for me and couldn't provide me with any additional information. Therefore, I cannot verify the relevance and validity of the questions asked. I advised the customer service rep that this would deter me from buying again and I never received a response. The only way i can consider using it again is if i pay for a test and take it myself fully to determine if it is a good test for the job I am recruiting for. I likely won't be doing that and will need to find another provider.

Response from HR Avatar

Thank you, Seema, for the candid feedback. Unfortunately, we don't routinely share individual questions for our assessments, and we doubt that any reputable provider does so. We do, however, share the competencies measured on our website, and we often work with customers to help them understand exactly what is measured in each competency. We are sorry you did not have a good experience with our customer service representative and will take action to prevent that from happening again. We would love to have a second chance to earn your business.

Solid Pre-Interview Assessment

Reviewed on 2019/11/13

Pros

The way that it challenges/assesses candidates skills differently from any other pre-employment test. The situations it takes you through are outstanding and it truly gives them a brief look into what they'll be getting into if they're hired.

Cons

With any of these pre-employment tests, there's always a point where you have to take the results with a grain of salt. That individual may have been under high stress when taking the assessment, could have been rushed by an emergency, or any other outside factors. So, overall, there isn't anything I have to complain about this specific software for HR Avatar.

Response from HR Avatar

Totally agree. We always recommend that assessment scores are used in conjunction with other evaluation methods, like interviews and references. Never use any single method exclusively because none are perfect. Thank you for your review!

Best Employee Screening Software We Have Found

Reviewed on 2020/02/04

It’s been excellent once we figured things out. We couldn’t be happier.

It’s been excellent once we figured things out. We couldn’t be happier.

Pros

Their products are great. But the best thing about this company is they very prominently place their phone number at the very top of their home page, and when you call it, someone knowledgeable actually answers, no need for any prompts, waiting, or voice mail. Who does that?

Initially we were frustrated, but this was mainly our fault. We tried to save money by paying individually for each assessment we administered. Well, you don’t save money this way, and it also means you have to pay if you want to take the assessment yourself. You also think 3 times before administering it.

Finally we got smart and just paid for a year. That took the money out of the equation. Now we could take them all ourselves to pick and choose which assessments were best for us, and we also send them now to every candidate. Much better.

But then things got even better when we realized they could customize assessments just for our business, and at a very reasonable price and quick turn-around. No now we have our very own custom assessments and we use them constantly. It’s been a total game changer.

They also don’t insist on a sales call prior to letting you sign up and trial, like most other companies do.

Cons

The price. But to be fair, when we comparison shopped, they were even with everyone else. Initially we thought they were cheaper because they offered a per-assessment fee. But this is a false economy.

Response from HR Avatar

Thank you for your honest and detailed review, Ryan! We are pleased to hear that your custom assessments have worked well for you.
