Note: The Indeed Assessment platform and integration is only supported and available to those that were using the integration prior to 2019. 

Indeed Assessments offers over 50 expertly designed test modules to match your needs and provides tools so that you can build a custom test unique to your organization. Their comprehensive library includes a wide range of job levels and industries to let you screen candidates for their aptitude, cognitive abilities, and specific skills that fit your hiring needs.

Greenhouse Recruiting and Indeed Assessments have built an integration that allows your organization to add an Indeed Assessments Stage to your job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:


Enable Greenhouse/Indeed Assessments Integration

To start, log in to your Indeed Assessments account and get your organization custom API key. This can be accessed from your user badge in the upper right-hand corner, under Integrations.

Once you have received your API key, fill out the form at or click here to open a ticket.

Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email.

The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key. A notification will be sent to the Greenhouse Support Team after you have entered your API key and they will email you to confirm that your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.

Note: To verify your identity, the Greenhouse Support Team might request you provide a Support Verification Code before adding the API key to your organization's account.


Add Indeed Assessment Stage to Job's Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/Indeed Assessments integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the Indeed Assessments test as an Interview stage. 

To do this for an existing job, navigate to a job (All Jobs>Job Name) and click Job Setup from the Job navigation bar.


From the Job Setup page, navigate to Interview Plan on the left-hand panel. Scroll down the page and click + Add a Stage.


From the Add Stage dialog box, select the Indeed Assessments stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.


Configure Indeed Assessment Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit Take Home Test. Use the provided drop-down menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in Indeed Assessments. 

Select the appropriate assessment and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.

Note: Keep in the mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be done in Indeed Assessments. 


Send and Review the Test 

When candidates are moved into the Indeed Assessments interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Indeed Assessments.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse and will display either:

  • Indeed Assessment to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>  

Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test on Indeed Assessments.
