Get Started Now!
IdealTraits has helped both of my agencies now for a couple of years put in place, good solid support staff. It allows me to find, screen and test before interviewing. I’m able to narrow my interview time down to only those that will really fit the bill for what we need. IdealTraits has saved us time and money by giving us a tool that is professional, customizable, and accurate every time. I will not hire anyone going forward without IdealTraits.
– Cheryl Bowker
We do not hire any candidates without first putting them through IdealTraits. We are convinced that the assessments are accurate and are clearly an indicator of a candidate’s future success within our agency.
Any Allstate agent not currently utilizing IdealTraits is simply missing the boat and even worse: costing themselves thousands of dollars due to a poor hire or a placing a new hire in a position in which their personality will not allow them to succeed.
If you aren’t using IdealTraits, don’t walk, RUN to your computer and sign up immediately!
– Mark Jameson
I love IdealTraits. Kevin and his team have helped me take my current hiring process to an all-new proficient level. Not only does it help in evaluating new hires, but it also helps take the guesswork out of who I am actually hiring. Kevin will also share his entire hiring process. These are the right ingredients for successful hiring. The other feature that creates a job ad for you and posts on job sites and Facebook is another great feature. If you’re not using this you’re not going to make the best hiring decision.
– Jay Adkins
IdealTraits has really helped me segment my staff. I had recently hired someone for a customer service position and she wasn’t working out as well as I had hoped. Shortly thereafter, I signed up with IdealTraits and had my entire staff take the assessment. Needless to say, my customer service person came back as a salesperson. Since I changed her position to sales, she has been doing great. She has really helped my growth this year.
– Shirl Crowe
IdealTraits has virtually eliminated the “guessing game” out of potential candidates. We all know that everyone who interviews for a position mostly tells the employer what they believe they want to hear. With IdealTraits, I have the confidence that I am not only hiring the right person, but also the right person for the right position.
– Omar Salazar
IdealTraits has put me in control of hiring higher-quality candidates at an affordable COST. I now can assess many candidates in an effort to hire the best one. I was using another company prior to Idealtraits, but the cost of the assessment was prohibitive. Plus, IdealTraits assessments are simple enough for me to understand so I don’t need someone to interpret the assessment for me. I have hired 5 new employees over the past six months using Idealtrails and only one didn’t work out.
– Ralph Portee
I have recently signed up for IdealTraits and plan on using this tool for all my future hires. I am currently in the process to hire two LSPs for sales and will use this tool to help identify the best candidate. Being new to the program I asked my current employees to participate in the questionnaire. It was very very accurate. I wish I would have had this opportunity when I purchased the business back in 2012, I would have saved a lot of heartache and money making sure I hired the right people.
I would strongly recommend this program to any new or existing agents.
– Stephen W. Mescall
IdealTraits has led me to the top performers in my office. My most recent hire is responsible for increasing my AF production by 15,000 pts in 45 days.
– V. Craig Campbell Jr
I think IdealTraits is a fantastic system! It has given me a structured course of action in the hiring process. It’s super easy to use and the results from the assessments are so crucial to making a wise hiring decision. The support was great when I had questions. The job listings are so professional-looking. I am very impressed and completely satisfied with IdealTraits!
– Cris Brock
IdealTraits has definitely helped us in the hiring process by helping determine if a candidate is suitable for the role we are hiring for. We have been able to specifically determine sales potential vs. customer service potential. We will continue using it each time we hire in the future. Thanks!
– Jennifer Flynn, Darren Vogt Agency
I would not consider hiring an employee without using IdealTraits in the process. The system is easy to use and interpret. Evaluating employees and getting them in the right “seat” was always hit and miss until I started using IdealTraits. Making a good hire makes all the difference! IdealTraits is a vital part of that process for me.
– John L. Cheney Jr CIC
We love IdealTraits. I would not hire a candidate without first having them take the IdealTraits assessment. It is the most detailed and accurate assessment we have used. I am actually blown away by how detailed, consistent, and accurate it actually is.
– Peter Stockwell
I have only recently started using IdealTraits but I can already see the value that it provides to me when screening candidates. I’ve been guilty of “quick to hire, slow to fire” in the past and the IdealTraits assessments will help me build a database of qualified candidates and ultimately make a smarter hiring decision.
– David Costa, Agent
The IdealTraits assessments have helped my agency in several ways:
I asked my entire staff to take the assessments and based on the results and feedback from your team we were able to better segregate the sales and service work in our agency to improve efficiency and customer service.
– Todd Ray
I feel that IdealTraits tells me things about an applicant that I couldn’t otherwise find out. It has helped me separate the great from the good. I don’t think I could ever hire someone without screening them with IdealTraits first.
– Nick Christensen
IdealTraits has helped me find people that are sales minded. It assists with people’s personality types and how my approach with them should be. So far, I am satisfied with IdealTraits and plan to continue to use it in my hiring process.
– Shannon Johnson
IdealTraits has been a critical hiring tool in my agency. It allows me to determine the candidates personality traits that could potentially lead to a successful employee. I highly recommend every Allstate agent use IdealTraits
– Omar Zaki
IdealTraits has helped me not only to know what I think I’m getting in a candidate but it is also helping me to distinguish where I am putting them within my company. It has been incredibly accurate with two of my hires!
I will always use this assessment when I am hiring new people.
– Donald A. Kaminski
IdealTraits has been a great tool for me to use when interviewing potential hires. I gave my newest hire the test, in which she did very well. I wish I had this tool with my previous hires that did not work out.
– Anna Maria Chiaverini
I appreciate having a tool which provides an objective measure of a candidate’s likelihood to succeed in our agency. We have utilized Idealtraits (I purchased the Gold Package) to hire both LSP’s and CSR’s and have been pleased with the results. I have also let a fellow agent test it out with a potential hire – so I obviously believe in it.
– Michael A. Morales
IdealTraits has really revolutionized the way we hire our new associates. Once we receive a resume we are interested in we contact the candidate and send them the assessment prior to their interview. The profile report returned has really helped us to identify if this candidate is going to be a “right fit” for the position that we currently have open. We also bring the profile assessment to each interview and we actually fashion our interview questions to correspond with the traits identified in the report, it has been surprising to us how “right on” these assessments have been. IdealTraits has helped to take the guesswork out of hiring – it is a must-have for our office!
– Valerie Grodman
I have used 3 assessments for potential candidates in the last couple of months and the results from the assessments helped me to eliminate two of the candidates that I probably would have otherwise hired. The third candidate had results that showed that she would be a great sales leader. This has proved to be true because she has turned out to be an outstanding sales producer! Based on these results I am a believer in the IdealTraits process to identify great sales producers. IdealTraits eliminates the guess work and costly expense of hiring the wrong person for the job.
– Carl Stanek
IdealTraits has provided accurate insights for our proposed hires by job description.
For sales positions, we are looking for the “closers”, the people who like commission-driven job opportunities. IdealTraits identifies those applicants who fit those criteria and the agency does not make a bad hire and waste months of training and wages. The same rationale applies to CSR positions and even admin assistants.
The Kent Schwab Agency does not make any hires without IdealTraits!
– Kent Schwab
Before using IdealTraits we spent countless hours trying to sift through resumes to determine which ones were worth contacting. The result led to wasting even more time interviewing candidates that were not truly qualified for the position we were looking to fill. After using IdealTraits we now know before the interview that the candidate has the qualifications that we are looking for. The site allows you to pre-qualify each prospect with a simple click of a button, assuring you that each interview you conduct is with the best people available. We conduct our Agency’s entire staffing and recruitment process from one place: IdealTraits. It comes highly recommended!
– Michael J. Blum
What I really appreciate about IdealTraits is how easy and intuitive it is to use. I am getting to the point where when a candidate completes an online assessment, I already know what to anticipate before they come in for an interview. I have also tried multiple online assessment tools in the past and have found them confusing in their reports and or lacking in the complete information that IdealTraits provides. I easily give IdealTraits an A+!
– Tom Baecker
IdealTraits takes the guessing out of hiring. Its simple, easy-to-use process allowed me to quickly filter down to those candidates that best suited my current need. This cut my search time down 80% and allowed me to focus on quality candidates for specific positions
– John A Larson III
Since registering with Idealtraits.com my hiring process has improved in allowing me to make sure the right candidate moves forward in the interview process. This has allowed me to concentrate on the right fit for my agency and not waste time on a candidate outside of the personality profile I am searching for.
– Carrie Lee Covington
IdealTraits is an invaluable system for my hiring process. Every candidate for hire is from IdealTraits job posts and every candidate takes the personality test. Because of the test I already know whether the candidate belongs in sales or service and this really helps me ask the right questions in the interview and get a clear assessment if the candidate is the right fit for my agency. I have had a high turnover before and since I started with IdealTraits I haven’t had one bad hire and no one has left. It has given me the culture I was missing and longing for. Production and service are up and I have a great team thanks to IdealTraits.
– Jason Kilgo
IdealTraits has given me greater insight into the strengths and weaknesses of my potential hires. After taking the test myself, I was able to see that it was accurate. In addition, once I was able to better see the areas that I either excel or fall short, in a more data-driven and scientific manner, I’m more confident that the people I bring into my business will compliment me and help me reach the goals that I have set.
– Mike Tiffany
I used IdealTraits for my most recent LSP hire and will say without a doubt I WILL NOT EVER hire another person without using their assessment. I have used another company for the last two years and even though the 3 people I hired scored acceptable for an insurance sales job none of them were truly salespeople.
There are other companies out there, but I have not found another company that is specifically targeted to an Allstate office the way they are.
– Chris Payne
IdealTraits has helped save me time, money, and the aggravation of hiring the wrong people. It has helped me to weed out the salespeople that I otherwise may have hired and focus on the applicants who are worth my time. I would recommend IdealTraits to any agent looking to hire! I wish Allstate would do a cost-share and/or make IdealTraits EA approved!
– Chris Waldmeir
IdealTraits has cut my hiring time down in half. I initially had my entire staff and myself take the test, so we knew who we needed to hire. Because of IdealTraits, I didn’t have to spend as much time interviewing candidates and I found the perfect employee for the position. My new hire is competent, fits in well with the agency and I feel very confident about my new employee. I would recommend them to anyone looking to hire in the insurance industry.
– Heidi Doebel
Since I began using IdealTraits my hiring process and quality of candidates is much improved. Most importantly I have not hired poor quality candidates thanks to the assessments that I have asked the candidate to complete. Not hiring people that are destined to fail is very valuable!
– Steve Craft
IdealTraits has totally changed my hiring process. I used to spend hours interviewing or responding to emails from prospective employees. After meeting with Kevin at the Mega Agency conference he convinced me there was a better way. Their website is easy to use and understand. I send a link to the applicant and I find that is my first line of screening. The ones that don’t complete it, don’t get another chance. That alone saves me enough time to justify the expense. The results when completed are easy to understand and so far, right on. I put my entire staff through it as a test before hiring my first candidate. I then went back to the staff individually to see what they thought about their own results. Most of them were amazed at the accuracy of the printout.
I won’t hire again without using IdealTraits.
– Stan Tebow
The IdealTraits process greatly helped me in selecting a qualified staff person. We were able to narrow down our candidates to 2 individuals who were pretty much equal and we selected the candidate that scored best in the assessment that they took online. The IdealTraits system helped in a Big way in making a solid decision. Our new employee is working out wonderfully!
– Pete Barry
IdealTraits kept me from making several hiring mistakes and has been very helpful with another potential that we were very interested in. We are still looking and will be in touch as soon as we find a solid person for our LSP opening.
Thank you for your help,
