We have been using this MMI process for over 5 years. We were initially going to forego interviews altogether as we did not find the traditional-style interviews we were holding to be effective in our physician assistant program. However, after researching options, we decided to try the MMI process and have noticed a dramatic spike in retention (nearly 100%) and increased student success (all but one student passed our national certification examination on their first attempt) over the past 5 years since implementation. It’s too easy to “prepare” for a traditional-style interview which will not always provide an accurate assessment of an applicant. The cases/scenarios available through ProFitHR* for use with the MMI process have allowed us to better assess the soft skills that are important in the success of our students. In addition, when polling each group of applicants at the completion of each interview day, nearly all applicants feel that this process is more enjoyable and less stressful overall than a traditional type of interview. “ Richard Hopkins, MPAS, PA-C Department Chair, Program Director University of Findlay Physician Assistant Program * ProFitHR now operating as Prospecthrmmi. - University of Findlay Physician Assistant Program

The Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto conducted a pilot test of the MMI in 2009. Based on the results of that trial, the Faculty adopted the MMI as the interview component of its admission process in 2010 and continues its use to the present. The resources and services available to us from ProFITHR enhanced our ability to maintain the high quality of our admissions interviewing method. The company maintains and expands an excellent bank of relevant stations that are accessed via the portal. In addition to the brief scenario, each station in the bank contains information for the interviewer that can guide the discussion with the applicant and help in assessing performance. The portal also contains documents and a video for interviewer training, an updated bibliography and a “scheduler” which assists in planning. ProFITHR has contributed to an integral part of our admissions process. The company is actively pursuing new delivery methods and new tools for improving the MMI and other aspects of the admission process. These efforts consist of collaborative research with universities and partnerships with other companies. We have enjoyed being a part of this collaborative approach.

"Hamilton Paramedic Service has been using the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) process as an important element of our screening and evaluation process for 7 years. After a preliminary applicant qualification screen and job-specific written examination, we utilize the MMI process to further reduce the candidate pool to those best suited for success within our service. With more than 600 applicants every year competing for a small number of positions this tool has proven itself to be effective in terms of cost and staff time. During our largest hire process, we successfully used MMI to complete a comprehensive screening of 150 applicants over a three day period. More importantly, when followed by normal interviewing processes the MMI process has consistently resulted in high-quality paramedic recruits to serve our City". - Michael Sanderson, Chief, Hamilton Paramedic Service
The UT College of Pharmacy adopted ProFitHR for use in our Multiple Mini-Interviews for the 2015 PharmD admissions cycle. An implementation team from an MMI task force was responsible for evaluating, selecting and adapting scenarios in the ProFitHR database for US Pharmacy. The scenarios were excellent and easily adapted. The questions and background information provided with each scenario provided interviewers with ample information to help maintain interview dialog. Furthermore, the text covered the nine core attributes that our faculty members had previously determined were essential for PharmD students. Additionally, there was a large variety of resources available on the website for planning the logistics of the MMI and for training of evaluators and applicants. These were important time-savers for our team. Our first MMI cycle went exceptionally well according to all stakeholders. Thanks to ProFitHR. - Dr. Richard E. Wilcox, PhD. Assistant Dean for Admissions and Advising and Professor of Neuropharmacology, College of Pharmacy, University of Texas at Austin
I benefited firsthand from the use of MMI’s in the recruitment and selection processes undertaken by the Hamilton Fire Department during my tenure as Fire Chief. We routinely received hundreds of applications from well-qualified candidates each year. Without a doubt, the MMI assessment process proved to be invaluable from an effectiveness, employee engagement and efficiency perspective. It allowed us to glean relevant insights into prospective Fire Fighters with an assessment instrument that had been vetted through rigorous evaluations by university researchers. The process assessed candidates for their soft skill competencies, attitudes and character - attributes that go beyond the technical competencies of the position. There is nothing more important than hiring the right people for Fire Fighting roles, individuals who are able to look after others in their time of need. The MMI allowed us to engage staff from literally all levels of our organization, and by extension, those involved in the process felt empowered by our participatory approach to recruitment. Importantly, from a Labour Management perspective, our frontline workforce felt more involved and genuinely pleased to have an opportunity to contribute to the future direction of our organization. From an efficiency standpoint, using the MMI process, enabled us to assess face-to-face up to 200 qualified candidates in a recruitment cycle, in far less time than our traditional interview panel process. Lastly, and equally important, the MMI can be customized to meet the requirements of numerous occupations. Truly, MMI assessments are a value-added component to the employee selection process and should be considered by those HR practitioners who have responsibilities for staffing and workforce planning. - Robert Simonds, Retired Fire Chief, City of Hamilton
