About the test

The Executive Officer test evaluates candidates’ skill at guiding people and operations to achieve an organization's strategic goals.

This test includes work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Facilitating effective teamwork to improve staff performance.
  • Managing people to promote work behaviors aligned to business needs.
  • Leading through strategic decisions that ensure long-term goals are met.

Roles such as CEOs, Directors, and Executive Officers all need strong teamwork, people management, and leadership skills to achieve business success.

You ask your boss to approve a raise for Jake, a member of the team you supervise. He is great at handling necessary clerical work, such as resolving clients' scheduling conflicts and proofreading to ensure clients receive error free communications. Your boss knows Jake's performance is excellent but denies your request because she feels it sets a bad example to reward low-level work.

What should you do to persuade your boss to approve Jake’s raise?

You are assigned to a team where each member is reporting their regional office’s performance data. Your role is to make sure the data is accurately reported so that executives can use it to allocate bonuses to each office.

You notice that one teammate, Ronan, rounded up the numbers for his office so they look better than other offices' numbers. For example, he reported $19.1 million in sales as $20 million, which is higher than Sue’s report of $19.3 million in sales as $19 million.

What do you do to make sure your teammates accurately report the data?

Germany's economy avoided falling into recession during the final three months of last year. This means that it avoided two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth, which is the definition of a recession. This was a small, but positive, surprise for all analysts who, after the July-to-September period that featured a 0.3% decline, predicted the continuation of this negative trend.

Reasons for slower growth last year include a slowdown in the global economy and a weaker car sector, with some German consumers less willing to buy new cars amid confusion over new emission standards.

Joe Johnson, senior financial analyst, told the BBC that US tariffs on EU car exports, which US President Donald Trump has threatened, could have a major impact on Germany. He thinks that, if this happens, Germany might fall into recession.

In an upcoming referendum, voters will be asked whether the minimum wage should be increased. Telephone polls of likely voters were conducted to predict what the result might be. All respondents were put into at least one of six categories based on profession and age: scientist, lawyer, hourly wage earner, small business owner, younger voter, older voter.

The opinion polls showed:

  • A majority of voters are in favor of keeping the current minimum wage.
  • A majority of scientists and lawyers supported a rise in the minimum wage.
  • Younger voters are more inclined to support a rise in the minimum wage.
  • Older voters tend to support no change.
  • Hourly wage earners overwhelmingly supported a rise in the minimum wage.
  • Small business owners were evenly split on the subject.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
