The use of tests can be an effective means of determining which applicants are most qualified for a specific position. We conduct a battery of cognitive tests to assess reasoning abilities, memory, perceptual speed and accuracy, skills in math and reading comprehension, decision making, and more.
If we ask you to continue the hiring process with testing and assessments, we will provide information on which series of tests to complete, all of which are administered online. The information provided here is intended to provide a general overview of the tests, what to expect during the testing process, and tips to prepare.
We strongly recommend that you practice some on-line testing before the actual test. This will help you become more comfortable working with on-line testing and will help you refresh on basic skills. Most of the test sets include solving math problems or arithmetic problems in basic calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), order of operations, fractions, decimals, patterns, and basic algebra. Preparing in these areas will help you brush up on these skills and get you accustomed to solving these problems without the use of a calculator.
