"There are a host of alternative pre-employment testing available. I work with Hiring Solutions because their testing and assessment solution is easily administered and interpreted. The evaluation and reports may be "tailored" to fit your job description and duties. And most importantly, Hiring Solutions is highly responsive and professional, speedily offering answers to questions or new requests."
