Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What does “Percentile rank” mean?

Scientific research methods and data inform our fit score and in almost all natural and social sciences, variables are scored on a bell curve.  Each candidate’s assessment results are translated into a “percentile rank” that shows where the candidate lands when compared to their peers in the Hire an Esquire network.

How to read percentile rank:

Percentile Rank Graphic, 1 to 39 is lower than average, 40 to 70 is average, and above 70 is above average

1-39: Predicted to perform lower than average in that particular workstyle trait

40-70: Predicted to perform average in that particular workstyle trait

70-100: Predicted to perform above average in that particular workstyle trait

Strength badges

If we predict a candidate will be an especially high performer in a certain workstyle trait, that trait is marked as a “Strength.”
