About the test

The Sales aptitude test evaluates a candidate's ability to complete the sale of goods or services on behalf of a company as well as aptitude for logical, numerical, and verbal reasoning.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of sales roles, including account manager and salesperson. A good candidate for a B2B sales job will be able to display competency with outreach to prospective customers, developing and maintaining customer relations, keen problem-solving abilities, understanding numerical information, reasoning about written communication, and making logical deductions based on given information.

This test requires candidates to demonstrate aptitude with various types of reasoning as well as skill with handling interactions with current and prospective customers through a series of multiple-choice questions.

As account manager, you will be taking over a difficult customer with whom your company has been struggling to expand your business. This customer currently has the largest market share in your region and is expected to grow their strong position. However, your company’s previous account managers had not been able to build a good trust-based relationship with the customer’s key stakeholders and has even lost some business over the last few years.

Your company’s top management still strongly believes that you should be able to grow your business with the customer if you make the right approach. How do you approach this customer?

You are a salesman for Dynacad Industries. Dynacad’s products are computer-aided design (CAD) systems that are sold into a variety of industrial companies. Though you had CAD experience in a previous job, you have been with Dynacad for 14 months and as of yet have not generated much business.

You are under pressure to produce when suddenly you are assigned a promising account that had been the responsibility of Jack Cutting. Jack had to retire suddenly because of severe health problems. The order that Jack was working on was for Dynacad’s largest and most expensive system, and would amount to a sizable deal for the company.

As you reviewed the customer’s needs and the model being proposed, you realized that this system is overly large and complex. However, the system you think would be a better fit for the customer costs far less than the larger, proposed system. What do you do?

Verbal Reasoning
Most Effective Summary

An author writes an argumentative essay to persuade readers to agree with a claim about a topic. When writing an argumentative essay, it's important to establish credibility with readers to convince them that the author is trustworthy. True statements, accurate evidence, and clear logic increase an author's credibility. However, false statements, inaccurate evidence, and unclear logic make an author less credible. With lower credibility, an author is less likely to persuade readers to agree with a claim--even when it is trustworthy.

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.
