In today’s world, many companies use employment tests in order to evaluate potential candidates.
Depending on the type of job you’re applying for, you might be asked to submit to a technical test, a physical test or even a drug test. All of these tests help businesses evaluate potential employees in one way or another.
While most companies administer employment tests after a candidate has been interviewed, some companies will start out with an employment test right off the bat. According to an article by The Seattle Times Company, the latter type of employer often view tests as a substitute for careful interviewing and assessment by a hiring manager.
