Pre-employment testing & applicant ranking for HR teams

About HireScore

HireScore is an applicant ranking solution for HR teams with pre-employment testing, candidate tracking, safety compliance management, and more. With the aim of helping businesses of all sizes to make intelligent hiring decisions, HireScore uses smart assessment technology to rank candidates based on their aptitude to the advertised role.

In addition to tracking applications, Hirescore also provides a ranking of each candidate based on their skills, experience, and characteristics, in order to help HR teams and management to select the best candidate. The dashboard view provides a leaderboard of applicants based on ranking, and sorts by statuses such as ‘not recommended’, ‘pending’, and ‘recommended', with green color coding for the overall highest ranking applications. Users can filter the leaderboard view by display type or status type and leave notes, flag candidates, or sort based on specific criteria.

For improved security, HireScore has a comprehensive set of safety-focused measurement tools in place to assess and predict which applicants would be most of a risk in any scenario. The predictive ranking tool is also legally compliant with industry laws and provides legally defensible and validated candidate assessments.

    I love this application and the HireScore team!

    Reviewed on 2020/11/25


    Only candidates that meet my criteria make it through the portal and their answers to my position-specific questions generate an overall ranking. This ensures that the candidates I see are serious about the posting and much more likely to engage with me. Volume isn't important to me - quality is. HireScore helps me identify the leading candidate and engage them quickly. On top of all the portal feature and functionality, HireScore has the added benefit of a very knowledgeable staff that helps me create the best recruiting strategy for each position. I have been recruiting for over 25 years and this is absolutely the most effective product and strategy I've ever used!

    In addition, HireScore has a plug-in for VerifiedFirst which I use for drug screening, background & credit checks. All of my applicant's information flows over smoothly and eliminates any duplicate entry for me and the candidate.


    Nothing comes to mind. I am happy with the user experience.

    Recruiting and Applicant Tracking Using HireScore

    Reviewed on 2020/11/23

    It has been very good.

    It has been very good.


    We are currently still using the HireScore software for recruiting and applicant tracking. We did not have an electronic applicant system prior to HireScore and see no reason to switch to anything else. It is easy to use and teach to others. I can do it over the phone. It allows our managers to have fast and easy access to their own applicants and allows them to make notes and track the progress of the applicant. It also allows myself (HR) and our Administrator to oversee the applicant tracking.


    I only wish that when I search for an applicant by name that it would bring me directly to that applicant. What is does is bring you to the position for which they applied currently or in the past and you have to scroll through all the applicants until you find the one you are looking for.

    Response from Stang Decision Systems

    Tammy, Thanks for the great feedback. We love to hear that HireScore is helping you hire great people. Also note that based on your recommendation we are moving the improved candidate search feature up the list, so you should see that in the next couple of months. Always feel free to reach out to your Project Manager if you have additional suggestions. Take care.

    An excellent tool that becomes an extension of the organization

    Reviewed on 2017/05/31


    This was my first experience utilizing specific software for the hiring process, I have found it to be very intuitive and it has made the process much more efficient for our team. There are many ways to mine the data with this software in regards to your applicants, which really helps to streamline the overall process for you. For a growing organization, with limited additional resources, this has truly been a great extension of our team.


    Overall this has been a very good tool for us to use, it still requires you to review the application to see if the experience truly matches up with the scoring, this is especially evident with more general, entry level roles.

    Saved me time, money and increased my confidence throughout the hire process.


    HireScore looks beyond the resume of a candidate and digs deep into a person's profile to assure they are a the right cultural fit. In addition to a very clever applicant software, the Stang team was professional and responsive guiding me to make the best decisions. The software's ability to rank candidates and the supportive Stang team saved me time, money and delivered a great new employee!


    HIreScore's is robust and collects a lot on information for a candidate. At times the amount of data is a lot to consider, but after our hire I understood the value.

    Thanks Karyn, you have been a pleasure to work with as well!
