Questions

We are in rapid-growth mode and are doubling our sales team every 3 months. Many HR managers I know are using personality tests as part of the hiring process to help select between candidates. We would be using this for junior sales positions, after completing the initial screening call. It would help us evaluate which candidates are the best fit for in-person interviewing and hiring decisions. What tools have you found effective? Any other thoughts on how best to apply these screens? Would you recommend hiring a consultant to facilitate or run an in-house program?

I really like DiSC - because understanding how someone thinks really helps me understand how they will fit into the team. I like to have a sales team that is diverse in skills and personalities so that we can match people with customers - this really allows me to better understand how they will react to the existing team and whether they have some traits that others do not.
