How Pipehire Score Rating Works?

Job applications with many applicants can be difficult to filter, this is why we developed the SRF( Score Rating Form).


The scoring system is how to gauge an applicant if they are a good fit or not.

It is also a quick way to rate the applicants based on your Score Rating Form.

The score is given to the answers completed by the applicant during the job application form.

Each question has several points assigned, and some questions could have negative points. So the more questions with the right answers the more points mean better applicants.

You have the option to customize the questions and decide on what score to indicate on that specific questions. Below is where you can customize the scoring system.

First, you need to click on the Forms / Job Post tab inside Pipehire system:

Choose which form you wish to edit or customize with your preferred scores. Click on the pencil icon to edit the questionnaires and the scoring option:

Once you are on the edit page of the form, you can either delete some questions according to your preference or if not relevant by clicking the trash bin icon, and should you wish to change the questions, click on the pencil icon to edit.

You can create open or close-ended questions. You can then change the scoring option according to your qualifications.

Pipehire shows the Best Possible Score Form inside the Form Builder and the Funnel Module, depending on how you have set up your question score. Best Possible Score can vary depending on the score assigned to each question.

Each applicant comes with a Score and it’s Color-coded to visually see the best candidates quickly (see image below).

Below you can see a job application with 10 applicants so far.

Job applications with many applicants can be difficult to filter, this is why we developed the SRF( Score Rating Form). This is an easy way to focus your efforts on those applicants who are the best.

When you see applicants in your funnel, you will see three colors:

Red: Disqualified = Abandoned the application (never submitted) and/or simply have none of the basic requirements. No need to waste your time talking to red candidates.

Yellow: Fair/ok = It’s an average candidate like a C or C+ player, does comply with the basics such as: own a car, driver’s license and can work 8 am-5 pm but still not a great applicant.

Green: Best and qualified. They comply with all the requirements and much more. These are the A-players where you should focus your time and effort.
