About the test

The Office Manager test assesses the ability to monitor, review, and be responsible for systems related to the overall administration of a business, including purchasing, facility management, and record keeping.

The assessment includes solving work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Creating, managing, and evaluating budgets.
  • Prioritizing, scheduling, and supervising the work of self and others.
  • Communicating appropriately and effectively.

A good office manager or chief administrative officer needs strong business math, time management, attention to detail, and communication skills to responsibly manage the overall administration of a business.

Working with Time

As a customer success specialist, you can only approve in-app purchase refund requests that are made within time limits determined by whether the customer is an adult or a child and whether the request came through the app store or by email.

  Adult Time Limit for Approval Child Time Limit for Approval
App Store Refund Request 4 hours after purchase 8 hours after purchase
Email Refund Request 8 hours after purchase 16 hours after purchase

NOTE: US customers use the date format MONTH/DAY/YEAR while Europeans use DAY/MONTH/YEAR. According to your company, a child is anyone born after 1/2/2010 for US customers and after the same date of 2/1/2010 for Europeans.

The table below gives the details you need to decide which customers' refund requests to approve.

Feedback

Your team doesn’t have anyone skilled in data analytics, so your boss asks you to do your best to analyze visitor behavior on the company’s website. A week later, you ask a colleague on a different team for feedback on your work so that you can improve it before presenting to your boss.

After reviewing your analysis, he says, “This makes no sense. Have you ever worked with data before?”

How do you reply?

How much will you have for your down payment if you cash in your term deposit at maturity?

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.
