How can we help you?

I use Criteria Corp. What does the integration look like? How do I enable it?

Greenhouse and Criteria Corp are integrated, allowing you to seamlessly use the two products together to add an assessment to your interview pipeline.

 To implement the integration, you need to:

  1. Contact Criteria Corp to request your API key.
  2. Email or to click here open a ticket. Please do not send the API key in this initial email.
  3. The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key into (How does SendSafely work?), which will notify Greenhouse Support once the API key has been entered.
  4. Greenhouse Support will then email you back confirming that your API key has been setup in your account and your integration is ready to go. 
  5. Add a special Criteria Corp stage to your interview
  6. As candidates enter that stage, send the Criteria Corp assessment through Greenhouse.
  7. Once candidates complete their assessments, a link to view their test results in Criteria Corp’s testing platform, HireSelect, will be accessible through the Interview Kit in Greenhouse.

 1. Enabling the Integration

To enable the integration, contact Criteria Corp to request your API Key. Once you receive it, forward it on to your Greenhouse Account Manager. You Account Manager will enter the API Key into the system and then let you know when the integration is ready to go.

2. Adding the Criteria Corp Interview Stage

To add the stage to your Interview Plan:

  • Navigate to a specific job, and click the Job Setup tab
  • Click Interview Plan
  • Scroll down the page, and click the green + Add Stage button
  • Select Criteria Corp Assessment, and click the Add buttonAddStage.png


 3. Configuring the Stage

Once the stage has been added, click Edit Take Home Test. From there, you will see a drop-down menu that reflects the assessment that you’ve previously set up in Criteria Corp. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessment, and then click Save.

Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled in Criteria Corp’s testing platform, HireSelect. When you click "Send Test" from within Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Criteria Corp.


 4. Sending the Test

When candidates are moved into the Criteria Corp Interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link. Remember, even though you click "Send Test" in Greenhouse, the interview instructions will actually be sent through Criteria Corp. **Criteria Corp take home tests must be sent to each candidate individually, do not send Criteria Corp tests using a bulk action in Greenhouse.

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

  • Take Home Test to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>
