This should be illegal, it is a total waste of time. How can a company know thru a list of questions with biased answers (because only one of the answers given has to be picked) the personality and behavior of the candidate? Anyone can fill out a multiple choice test, regardless of the answer. We should gather together and file a class action suit

I provide references for about 20 of my former students and former employees each year. I receive a few Skills Survey emails every year. They do not provide the name of the company, the position, any name of a contact person, or anything else about the position for which my former student/staff member is applying. I will gladly talk with and send a letter to a specific hiring manager. However, I will not send confidential information about one of my former students or staff to an online data company such as Skills Survey, for them to interpret and use as they wish.

As a candidate, not a fan. I feel as though I am harassing my references to fill out a survey. Also, in the interest of candidate experience, this is putting the entire onus of gathering not only the references themselves but also their feedback. Obviously, the candidate should provide the names and contact information of those they wish to use as a reference. But to then say " Now send them this survey and nag the living you know what out of them until they respond" sounds lazy on the hiring managers part to me and puts too much responsibility on the candidate.

No stars...paperwork bullies....no manager has time to do your 30 minute surveys....anyone can rush through it in 5 minutes but anyone analyzing a candidate properly is gonna take 30 minutes....you are untruthful when you state it is quick...only quick for people who do not think through their answers....you can size up a candidate with 10 questions...no need for 30 questions that asks the same results over and over...I will decline EVERY survey I get from your company in the future.

I would strongly caution applicants not to become involved in this. Employers wanting to check references need to pick up the phone and call them instead of forcing the applicant to provide email addressed and then try to con managers into completing a survey which most major companies prohibit them from completing. There appears to be no verification that the references are accurate- this is simply software that mines information and the job seeker gives up all their rights when applying through them.

Hi Brad,

More than 20 million candidates and references have used the SkillSurvey solution since it launched a decade ago, with both parties agreeing to participate in the process. Online reference checking actually gives more power to job candidates in that they have control over which references to provide and know through status reports which references have been reached and provided feedback. There are also technical safeguards to ensure reference authenticity. All reference contact information is available should a recruiter or hiring manager wish to follow-up via phone.

It's all about bugging your references to take a survey for a job you haven't even been offered yet. Personally, I don't like to bug my references any more than necessary, especially if I'm involved in an active search with multiple employers.
