Reduce Risk by Identifying Reliable Candidates
Step One Survey II™
“We screen applicants and then use the Step One Survey II. We specifically look at integrity, attitudes about substance abuse, reliability, and work ethic. Next, we go to the Profile XT, which helps with questions to ask in subsequent interviews. We've used these products for a while and will revisit them in future recruiting." – Kip Botkin, Highland Police Force
"Regarding the SOS, we initially had a challenge with the hiring supervisors accepting this tool because they didn't believe in integrity testing. They quickly learned otherwise. Two applicants tested were determined to be 'high risks,' but the supervisors hired them against our recommendation. Less than two weeks later both new hires were gone. The supervisors now insist they be referred no one until the SOS test is administered! In addition, this test has helped our company reduce turnover by 50% over last year by weeding out high risk candidates and has saved us hundreds of dollars just in post-offer physical exams and drug screens alone." David F. Orf, Human Resources Director, Clayton Corporation
"Over a three and half year period, our company's turnover was reduced by 49 percent, because we used the Step One Survey II. The savings we realized by hiring fewer people saved us almost a quarter of a million dollars. We started using Step One Survey in January 2001. The first year, turnover was high. The second and third years, it dropped substantially. Overall, we hired 33 percent fewer employees. We calculate that turnover costs $7,100 per employee. Since we hired 35 fewer people in 2002 and 2003, we saved $248,500." – Rhonda Griffin, Centro, Inc.
"At one point we had a turnover rate of 40 percent. With the aid of the Profile XT and the Step One Survey II assessment, we've reduced turnover to 29 percent. Based on the cost of replacing an employee, we have more than paid for the assessments." – Michael R. Teakell, SPHR
"We use the Step One Survey II to screen people before we hire. The Step One Survey II gives us more interview questions to use." – Gwen Frye, King Wholesale
"We've used the Profile XT and Step One Survey II for retention and hiring. They help us pinpoint the right questions to ask people so we can find a better fit for the company. Our Client Services Representative is fabulous to work with and we have a good relationship." – Gambro
"The Postal Credit Union wanted a product that would help find the best new people. We check aptitude with Step One Survey II. This tool narrows the selection to people who think the same way we do. Everyone at Profiles International is very helpful." – Tenita Howard, Postal Credit Union
"We wanted to examine the potential ability of entry-level employees. For a while, we used Profile XT only. Now we are also using Step One Survey II. We discovered we could probe a candidate's interests more deeply. The assessments uncover traits and attitudes that would not normally have come up in our regular interviews. Everyone at Profiles International is very helpful and proactive." – Phil Buckleman, Alfa Laval Inc.
"I've been receiving very important feedback from the Step One Survey II™ screening program. It has enabled me to learn insightful information prior to employment about an individual’s attitudes as they relate to honesty/integrity, substance abuse, reliability and work ethic that ordinarily wouldn't be discovered until after someone is employed – then it's too late! Also, the direct admission portion provides open-ended interview questions that make the interview more structured and effective." – Judie Posner, Human Resources Manager
"Step One Survey II has proved to be a useful tool in gauging employee work ethic, integrity and propensity to substance abuse. We use the test as part of the interview process. The face-to-face interview, reference checks and Step One test all play equal roles in determining the success of a candidate. We have determined that Step One is very accurate in identifying potential problem areas." – Margo Stewart, Human Resources Manager
"I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how delighted we are with the Step One Survey. After interviewing over a dozen applicants we found the Step One Survey to be a useful inexpensive tool to help us screen applicants. The survey is beneficial for asking all the questions we should have and then suggesting follow up questions in areas that need more explanation." – Ed Boerman, President

"Our company has never used pre-employment testing before, so we were a little uncertain of its value and cost vs. benefit. We used 350 Step One Surveys in 4 months to staff about 100 positions in our new store. Out of the 100 people that we hired, approximately 95% turned out to be very good employees. This result exceeded our expectations!" – Jerry Manley, Store Manager, Brookdale ShopRite, Inc.
"We were thrilled when we discovered the Step One Survey. In our business, honesty is a mandatory job requirement. In the past we had no way to measure this trait. The Step One has taken the guesswork out of the hiring equation for honesty and integrity." – A. Kaye Carson, Personnel Administrator, Heartland Management Company
"With the SOS, we are able to screen out those candidates that do not meet our standards for integrity, reliability, work ethic, and attitude toward substance abuse. As the name implies, hiring good character, honest, hard working people is the first step in hiring the right employees." – Lee A. Haiges, Secretary/Treasurer, Haiges Machinery Inc.
"The survey is easy to administer and score. In my business, finding reliable employees with a good work ethic is a challenge. The Step One Survey is an effective tool that helps me make smarter personnel decisions." – Bruce Oliver, Owner, VideoTime
"The results were enlightening and pinpointed each person - it was very predictive! Bottom-line it (Step One Survey) works and after looking at some of the other ‘brand name’ instruments I'm glad that I chose Profiles International's Step One Survey. I'm very pleased with the Step One Survey and I would recommend it to any company who wants to hire honest, hard-working, reliable and drug-free employees!" – Howard Falkow, Director of Human Resources, Rumarson Technologies, Inc.
