Hi Michelle, I use 2 x normative tests for recruitment interviewing and promotion - the Advanced Sales Questionnaire and the Rapid Personality Questionnaire - on line from Kennexa - you can set up your own accoutn and self administer the process, results have a high correlation. If you want the Big 5 personality tests then how about this - completely FREE!!!! - try FindingPotential on www.findingpotential.com, - they are connected to Talent Drain. Great free resource - full reporting - they are also developing 360, recruitment sifting tests and others .Good luck Hilary Reen
I would recommend Cut-e; www.cut-e.com. They provide web- based psychometric assessment tools and other talent management services and software. They have an excellent client base and references - I can vouch for their selection tools as I was recruited for my last job partly through their psychometirc tests and assessment centre. Good Luck, Evelyn Curtin.
I worked with APTER International http://www.apterinternational.com/ who conducted online personality assessments for delegates in a management development program (a prerequisite for all delegates to complete). Although they are not free :( they are cost effective and professional.
I have used CPQ (comprehsive personality questionnaire) for a long time and find it excellent. Participants can take it online and the results are sent to you. Reports for recruitment and for coaching. Very precise information on candidates for sales roles also. I have been an interviewer on the Irish TV Show "The Apprentice" and used the questionnaire for the final apprentices.
