HR Analyst

Downey Unified School District

“The implementation of eSkill in our district not only changed the way we administer multiple choice testing, but also performance, and oral rating exams. The ability to administer multiple exams at the same time or the same day has been an amazing. This has also allowed us to remain in the office and continue doing the full scope of our job as applicants are testing. It has made it so much easier to find raters to grade our oral rating exams and raters have been very happy with the functionality of grading the exams. The eSkill Support Team is always there to assist with any issues that arise or with any questions our district has! We have been able to innovate, and online testing has allowed us to expedite many recruitments and the hiring process.”

Isabel Barreras, CGHR-CP

Director, Classified Human Resources

Madera Unified School District

“During the COVID pandemic, Madera Unified School District faced many challenges in continuing the recruitment process and eSkill proved to be a valuable resource in transitioning to virtual testing and assessments. We had access to their library of assessment tests and their easy-to-use technology allowed us to use video questions to evaluate candidates as well as online testing. Our eSkill Client Success Manager provided excellent, timely assistance, which made the setup and implementation process painless. The use of eSkill has sped up our recruitment process and has proven to be a vital resource.”

Debbie Batchie

HR Analyst

Escondido Union School District

“e-Skill has been a lifesaver for us since the pandemic. We had to quickly shift our testing to an online format and e-Skill offered all of the solutions that we needed: virtual & valid test options, easy & quick implementation, and a responsive & caring customer service team. Working with them over the past two years has been a wonderful change. It has significantly reduced our candidate response time, and as a result, our time to fill positions. It has given our HR staff back precious time, previously spent on proctoring and scoring so they can focus on essential tasks such as COVID tracking and other special projects. We are grateful to e-Skill and would recommend them without hesitation.”

Susan Dixon, Director

HR Director

San Dieguito Union High School District

“The San Dieguito Union High School District has been using eSkill for virtual employment testing since the start of the pandemic. We considered several options; but during the sales presentation the representatives were so customer-focused and receptive to our many inquiries/doubts about virtual testing, we felt certain this was the vendor we wanted to select. We haven’t been disappointed with our decision. Our representative is very responsive to our requests and the product continues to meet our testing needs. Our applicants have been able to navigate within eSkill and we have been pleasantly surprised that we haven’t had any big technical issues. We highly recommend eSkill and will continue to use their services after the pandemic.”

Bob Nichols

Associate Director

University of Maryland

“The testing went great! We loved the ability to create our own test from a bank of existing questions. It was a key part of our search process and we found an excellent candidate. As I said, we don’t do searches for technical positions very often, but when we do, eSkill testing will always be a part of it.”

Toni Hart

Human Resources Advisor

Justice Institute of British Columbia

“Wonderful customer service; efficient & knowledgeable staff; testing works for hiring staff. Ease of use and I can send testing to candidates via email remotely, which is beneficial and saves time.”
