Finding the Right Candidates
How to find the most qualified candidates
What's right for your agency? Custom tailor your next recruitment process by using a variety of PES pre-vetting processes. If your department is looking for 'more than just a test' to screen your potential new hires, we have the tools you need to help attract qualified candidates to fill your vacancies.
The Written Exam: Our exams are used to identify those individuals candidate pool who are best suited for a career with your agency, and to ensure that those who are unsuited for a position with your agency are screened out. Candidates will be assessed on a battery of cognitive and non-cognitive dimensions needed to be a successful police officer. Nationally validated, our exam focus on utilizing tools and measures that have minimal adverse impact.
Cognitive Dimensions such as deductive reasoning, info gathering, written comprehension, written expression, and visualization, and
Non-Cognitive/Integrity Dimensions including integrity, honesty, socialization, positive outlook, and orderliness
By utilizing PES exams and recruitment services, your agency is providing for a fair, impartial, and transparent system of evaluating potential new hires.
The Written Exam Format: PES offers exam in two formats
In-person exam with a set date and location, and/or
Remotely through our @Home Testing services on a scheduled session date and time
Written Exam - Transportability Study: Every agency that uses an assessment tool to assist in making employment decision bears the responsibility to demonstrate the local appropriateness and validity of that assessment. We have established a procedure that enables your agency to demonstrate local validity evidence simply and without cost. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781.645.6005.
Quick Results: You get your results fast, so you can hire faster! We are committed to releasing written exam scores within three business days from the date of the exam.
Adverse Impact Data: Our exams were developed to measure minimal impact on protected classes. Your detailed Adverse Impact Report is specific to your test and will be furnished with your exam results.
The Projected Personality Interpreter (PPI): Our personality assessment identifies a candidate's top key personality traits by harnessing IBM Watson AI technology. This assessment is provided to your agency for every participating exam candidate and provides additional insight into your applicant. This feedback allows for your agency to develop more effective interview questions. The candidate does not receive a score for their PPI nor does it factor into the written exam score. To request a sample PPI report, please contact us at email@example.com or 781.645.6005.
policeapp.com: Through our partnership with policeapp.com and a seamless integration between both agencies, you have the ability to utilize their internet based application while working directly with PES on all exam related logistics. Your department's custom dashboard will allow you the ability to access candidate information, schedule interviews, and communicate with your candidates through email.
Job Opportunities: If your department is looking to hire lateral transfers or full-time academy trained officers, PES offers a complimentary job posting site for those agencies not hosting an exam, but with an ongoing application process. It's been our experience that in today's hiring climate, the more marketing avenues, the better. Your posting will be showcased on our site until its expiration, and interested applicants will be directed to correspond directly with your agency. Email us today for more information.
