About the test

The Attention to Detail and Time Management test assesses a candidate’s ability to successfully produce thorough and accurate work in a timely manner.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of office-based roles that require juggling of tasks, competing time frames, and successful execution of fine details. A good candidate will be able to demonstrate the ability to plan and control time spent on various activities while closely following given instructions and producing error-free work.

This test requires candidates to both exhibit their level of attention to detail and demonstrate their ability to prioritize and schedule work through a series of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions.

You are covering for a coworker who is out on leave. Your coworker has left you a voicemail message specifying the tasks you will need to do for them.

Hi there! Thanks so much for covering for me. So, the main thing you need to do is complete the monthly revenues spreadsheet. You can do that by looking up the latest ad revenue in the reporting from marketing. Ok, so after you do all of that, go ahead and check my email and then my voicemail to see if there are any requests from the executives. If there are any such requests, do those first unless you have an emergency request from another department. Once you’re done with fulfilling requests, please water my desk plant after you turn off the computer. Oh, wait, I should have mentioned a couple of things: you have to log in with manager access in order to see the marketing reports, and you'll need to send me an update email right after you finish handling the requests. OK, thanks again. This is a big help! I owe you lunch when I’m back.
