We're a small company and we don't have a dedicated HR person. Hiring Hirebox to put out ads, do initial interviews and testing saved me A LOT of time. Without having to spend all this time performing these HR duties, I was able to greatly expand my production and other departments in my company. I highly, highly recommend their services.

Sifting through hundreds of applicants at the speed of light, without getting distracted away from production is what every hiring executive or business owner dreams of. Hirebox has offered just that to me. Hirebox is the most outstanding and thoroughly effective hiring solution I have ever come across. Very intuitive, easy to use, and very efficient. The insight it gives you into your hiring prospects is exact and comes in handy while going through the process of hiring. Plus, the fast and client-oriented customer service. Swift response to questions and an unmatched willingness to help you succeed. I have been wholeheartedly recommending this software to my friends. I also recommend it to YOU!

I was fortunate to hear Patrick talk about his hirebox products and when it came time to hire a new office member I used the surveys to assist with weaning out the best candidates for the job we needed filled. I found it very helpful with focusing in on my candidate pool and will use it again when the time comes.

Patrick and his team did a terrific job of helping us write the job description and find the right person for our firm. We had hired someone that just wasn't the right fit and Hirebox stepped right up and ran the ad again and found a much better fit for us. Excellent customer service, screening of candidates, and coaching every step of the way from how to write the description through actually hiring the person. We highly recommend you have them help you find the right one for you.

It is a great service. I was able to count on them to review hundreds of resumes and preselect the right candidates for the position. The pre- selector test is a great tool that helps to figure out which candidate is a better fit for our group. They made the experience a joy instead of a chore. Thank you so much!!!!
