Wayne, PA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
SkillSurvey®, Inc., the inventor and leading provider of online reference-checking solutions, now includes Chuck E. Cheese’s (CEC Entertainment) among its users of its Pre-Hire 360® solution.
“Through the ease of Pre-Hire 360®, we no longer have to manually check references and record the information in our applicant-tracking system,” said Alessandra Serboli, manager of human resources at Chuck E. Cheese’s. “Not only are we saving time, but we are also receiving consistent, documented information that can be used to guide the final hiring decision.”
SkillSurvey®’s core offering is its Pre-Hire 360® solution, which gathers input from a job applicant’s references by using behaviorally-based surveys delivered through enterprise software. The surveys reveal a candidate’s strengths and developmental needs, and the confidential input from managers, peers, subordinates and business partners provides a multi-dimensional view of the candidate’s past performance. The system overcomes the usual reserve of former employers, because they are released from liability and their feedback is confidential.
“We are thrilled to have Chuck E. Cheese’s as a new client,” said Ray Bixler, president and chief executive officer of SkillSurvey®. “They have a reputation for providing a fun and safe environment for family entertainment and we’re honored that they trust Pre-Hire 360® to help them find and hire employees who share the company’s values.”
In addition to Chuck E. Cheese’s, SkillSurvey® serves a variety of Fortune 500 clients like eBay, Kohl’s and McDonald’s, and also respected healthcare systems nationwide like HealthSouth, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Yale New Haven Health System.
