Sonic Automotive rolls out Pre-Hire360 for all Job Candidates

WAYNE, PA – May 22, 2014 – SkillSurvey, Inc., the inventor of the Pre-Hire 360® assessment, which recently received a U.S. Patent, today announced that Sonic Automotive, a Fortune 500 company that operates over 100 car dealerships, has rolled out Pre-Hire 360® to standardize its hiring processes.  Sonic Automotive is now conducting Pre-Hire 360® assessments on all candidates as it builds its employee base of more than 9,700 associates.

“We have high standards for the employees that we hire and want to ensure that associates throughout our dealerships adhere to and reflect our overall corporate brand. Our hiring managers appreciate the meaningful feedback that they’re getting on candidates and information that provides additional value on top of what they gather from interviews,” said Angela Broadway, PHR, Director of Associate Development at Sonic Automotive. “I’m pleased by the consistency we’ve brought to our assessment process and the system practically runs itself, eliminating the need to chase reference calls,” she continued.

Pre-Hire 360® allows hiring managers to evaluate a candidate’s past performance based on answers to job-specific survey questions provided by prior managers, co-workers and direct reports. SkillSurvey has more than 360 job-specific surveys that help recruiters better assess candidates before interviewing and narrowing their applicant pool. On average, completed assessments are available in less than two days, usually with more than four references providing responses.
