Some old-style pre-hire sales aptitude tests or pre-employment sales personality tests try to disguise themselves as sales assessment tests, which they are really not. It takes more than just personality or aptitude to close a complex sale in a competitive environment. A conventional sales personality test or sales aptitude test is often "blind" to the impact of a job applicant's experience, sales training, or knowledge of sales techniques. Thus, it may fall short when evaluating experienced salespeople or sales managers.
The Dan JOY Tests (TM) of Total Sales Ability (TM) do not have those limitations, and can be used as pre-hire sales assessments for evaluating experienced sales executives, as well as for evaluating a current sales team for promotion, retention or training purposes.
The robust 2-step testing methodology (Screening Test plus Final Test) pioneered by Dan Joy Inc helps employers avoid the frustration and aggravation of interviewing the "non-candidates"
Employers may narrow down a large pool of job applicants to a much smaller number of the top few (the best ones) by using an inexpensive emailed Screening Test which each applicant may take online from home. The applicants' names get arranged highest score first in the employer's control panel online, and the top scorers continually "float" to the top making it easy for an employer to narrow down the best ones for further consideration.
The employer can then administer a low-cost and affordable Final Test online to only those top 2% shortlisted candidates, just prior to the interview, when they visit the employer's premises. That can lead to considerable savings of time, effort and money, and help the employer avoid the frustration and aggravation of interviewing the "non-candidates"
