The most costly Aptitude Testing is on-the-job aptitude testing - that is, learning the level of a new employee's actual knowledge and ability after they've already been hired.  Unfortunately for most employers, the results too often reveal that their candidate of choice didn't have the Aptitude and Skills they claimed on their resume and in the interview. 

If you are not currently using any type of Aptitude Testing to pre-screen employees for your company, you will find the information we are about to share with you to be very enlightening:   Aptitude Testing can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars that result from a bad hire and/or post-hiring training classes!  The HIRE SUCCESS Custom Aptitude Testing System can be an extremely  valuable tool for your employee selection, development and management.

"Not only has your service enabled us to make more well rounded hiring decision; but the insight it has provided us with regard to our current staff has been remarkable." - M. Hamilton

CUSTOM APTITUDE TESTING - Here are a just a few examples of problems we've heard from many employers, together with the Aptitude Testing Solution:



"Employees send embarrassing letters and memos to clients and prospects with misspelled words and bad grammar, but they have a college degree."


Use our standard Aptitude Tests for Spelling and Grammar and learn the level of English competency before you hire!  There is also a  "Combination" test that includes Math, Spelling, Vocabulary and Grammar. The Spelling and Vocabulary Aptitude Tests provide an overall score Plus individual scores by Academic Range (4-8th Grade, 9-12th Grade, College Level).  The Combination Aptitude Test provides an overall score plus individual scores for each of the four (4) categories.


"Some employees find it difficult to make change for customers or they don't have the math knowledge to know when a cash transaction doesn't look right."


Administer our Professionally Developed Math Aptitude Test. Learn their Math Aptitude BEFORE you make a hiring decision!  The Math Aptitude Test provides an overall score Plus individual scores by Academic Range (4-8th Grade, 9-12th Grade, College Level)


"I hired a new employee who claimed to have experience using our standard computer software, but after being on the job a few days, we discovered we would have to send him through a "refresher" course for $500. How can I avoid this in the future?"


The Hire Success Aptitude Testing Series includes a special Combination Aptitude Test  for a variety of common computer software systems including Windows '95/98, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, General Computer Terminology and Internet Terminology. 


"Our Company has its own training program, but is doesn't seem to be as effective as we would like."


Aptitude Testing is a tool to help identify weak areas in a training program. Test student's knowledge before and after the training. You'll quickly see what they have learned, but also see certain questions are often missed on the Post-Training Aptitude Test. This could be an indication that the topic was not covered as thoroughly as it should. You may also discover most people get certain questions correct on the Pre-Training Aptitude Test so less time could be spent on that subject.  Custom Aptitude Tests can be developed at a nominal cost.  Academic tests can be certified by a Doctor of Education.


Applicants claim they have expertise and training in specific areas that are important to your company.  Examples might include "Mechanical Engineering", "Electrical", "Project Management", "Sales" or "Sales Management", "Accounting", "Software Development" or virtually ANY subject.
