Frequently Asked Questions

IMPORTANT – PLEASE NOTE: Due to the amount of Junk eMail circulating the Internet many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have increased the level of filtering to screen out unwanted emails, and rightly so. Further, there is a growing trend for individuals to use additional 3rd Party eMail filter software. While all of this is useful in filtering out unwanted emails, many businesses are now also finding that "good" email is also being filtered out and therefore employees are sometimes not receiving safe email, that is, email coming from a reliable source. Access to Ascentii's free trial and ongoing usage beyond the trial is based on being able to receive emails from Ascentii and/or EPIC Software Corporation (of which Ascentii is a Division) containing assessment links that can be forwarded to job applicants and used in electronic job board postings. In order to avoid potential delays in accessing the Free Trial, it is imperative that the Ascentii.com and epic-soft.com domains are white-listed in your email settings. In addition, once these domains have been white-listed, when expecting to receive an email from Ascentii and/or EPIC Software Corporation, please be sure to also check your Bulk/Junk folders; should one of our emails end up in one of those folders, please code our email "Not Junk" in your email settings and any potential problems in receiving emails with important links should be resolved.

  1. Why is personality testing important to recruitment?

The more information available, the more efficient and accurate a recruiter can be; this means getting a higher quality of candidate in front of the Hiring Manager …faster!

  3. What are the results telling me?
  4. The survey measures an individual’s capacity to perform a specific behavior in a given role, on a consistent, day-to-day basis; allowing you and your business to have an element of reliable predictability regarding new hires and anticipated job-relevant performance.

  5. Is the survey legally compliant?
  6. Yes. The survey is based upon the WorkPlace Big Five and all questions were reviewed and approved by employment and labor law lawyers. In addition, the WorkPlace Big Five has been completed by over 50,000 candidates to date.

For Independent, Corporate and Agency Recruiters that anticipate using this service to screen large numbers of job applicants (e.g., choose to embed the link for Job Applicant Screening in electronic job board postings therefore anticipating high volume) Ascentii provides very attractive rates by way of volume discounts through tailored corporate and site licenses.
