About the test

The Receptionist test evaluates a candidate’s ability to be the first point of contact for a business, including taking responsibility for greeting visitors, answering calls and emails, scheduling appointments, and performing other administrative duties.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for front desk roles, such as receptionists, front desk clerks, and other administrative office roles. A good candidate for a receptionist job will be able to display a high level of interpersonal skills, the ability to resolve customer issues, excellent written communication, proficiency in scheduling appointments, thoroughness in detail-oriented work, an aptitude for understanding numerical information, thorough comprehension of written information presented in reports and emails, and the ability to make logical conclusions about facts and figures.

This test requires candidates to demonstrate their abilities in real-world scenarios by answering a series of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions.

You are on the support team for a cable/internet company and you have received the following email from a customer, Mike Smith:

I am very upset that your installation tech did not come to my home today at the appointed time. I took time off from work, all for no reason! I was told he should arrive between 12:00 and 5:00. He didn’t get here until 5:45. I could have just stayed at work since I normally get home at 5:30. This is not a good way to start my new service with you and I am already considering canceling!

A quick check of the notes on the customer’s account shows that the tech was scheduled to arrive ideally between 12:00 and 5:00pm, but didn’t get there until about 5:45 because of heavy traffic resulting from a car accident on one of the major crosstown roadways.

Please draft your response to this customer in the box below.
