Hired Assessments provides a suite of products that change the way companies evaluate and discover technical talent. Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Hire Assessments allows your organization to seamlessly add a Hire Assessments test to a job's interview plan. In this article we will cover how to:


Retrieve Hired Assessments API Key

In order to enable the integration, your organization must first retrieve its Hired Assessments API Key from your account. From your Hired Assessments dashboard, click your name and select Settings from the dropdown menu.


Select Integrations from the left-hand panel and Copy the API Key for Greenhouse.



Enable the Greenhouse/Hired Assessments Integration

Once you have received your API key, fill out the form at www.greenhouse.io/asksupport 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 Hired Assessments Stage to Job's Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/Hired Assessments integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the Hired Assessments assessment 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 Hired Assessments stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.


The Hired Assessments assessment is added to the job's interview plan.


Configure Hired Assessments Stage

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

Note: Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled in Hired Assessments.  While you will click Send Test from within Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Hired Assessments.


Send and Review the Test

When candidates are moved into the Hired Assessments Interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link. While you will click Send Test in Greenhouse, the interview instructions will actually be sent through Hired Assessments.

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>

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