Feedback

Decision Maker:

"Went very well, I like the structure and the way the candidate has to interact on his/her feet. Believe that the role of the people interacting with the candidate very important, i.e. they have a very important role to create "problems" for the candidate, it’s live and thus we get a sense of the candidate under pressure. Important we have minimum 2 candidates to get a balance."

Decision Maker:

"I liked the process very much. It gives you a different angle to shed light on a candidate. Interviews are a pure question and answer sessions, which is ok to probe the technical knowledge. For the behavioral/soft skills, it is definitely an added value to see the candidate in action. The process was well structured."

HR Head:

“The methodology atrain uses is data proven, and the professionalism has been spotless. What makes atrain special is that they create or fine-tune simulations according to the company needs. They do not push for a set list of standard exercises but they customize everything to mirror reality and be as close as possible to real job situations. In our most recent AC, we saved the company thousands of dollars by making an informed decision to which candidate to hire that is a good fit for our culture and has potential for future growth.”
