Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Mettl allows you to add an assessment to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover: 


Enable the Greenhouse Recruiting / Mettl integration

To start, contact your Mettl representative to request your organization-level API key. Once you have received your API key, click here to open a ticket with the Greenhouse Support team. 

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 the Mettl stage to a job's interview plan

Once the Greenhouse Recruiting / Mettl integration is enabled for your Greenhouse Recruiting account, you can add Mettl 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.


On the subsequent page, click + Add a Stage.


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



Send and review the test
