Before making the final decision, we recommend reference checks. Here is where we check if the person
really did do what was so "gloriously" described. We verify the volume and quality of production, so that you can be sure they will meet your requirements. Also, we check if the former employer or co-worker observed the personality traits shown by the U-TEST.
Keep in mind we are not asking for specific details or to put a reference at risk, but whether the person observed their former employee behaving in such a manner. You will be surprised at the difference it makes. Rather than a guarded conversation with someone afraid to say bad things about a former employee, we get behind the social answers and ensure we have a person working with us.
