Gauging a candidate’s aptitude for sales is really important for businesses hiring for customer-facing sales roles, which is why many employers use sales tests as part of the recruitment process.

The exact requirements of the test will differ depending on the role you’re applying for, but you can expect questions designed to examine your interpersonal skills, your problem-solving skills and your overall ability to sell.

Prepare yourself for leading employers

Sample Sales Aptitude Tests question Test your knowledge!

A company has decided to hire salespeople on a contract basis and will compensate them solely on commission. The commission is a flat rate of $50 per unit sold. If a salesperson aims to earn at least $4,000 per month, what is the minimum number of units they must sell?

  • 80 units
  • 100 units
  • 75 units
  • 85 units

A sales report shows that in the first quarter, a total of 400 units were sold. During the second quarter, sales increased by 25%. However, in the third quarter, sales dropped by 15% compared to the second quarter. How many units were sold in the third quarter?

  • 425 units
  • 500 units
  • 475 units
  • 450 units

Read the following statement: 'The innovative approach to lead generation not only streamlined the process but also resulted in a 30% increase in conversions over the past fiscal year.' What conclusion can be drawn from this statement?

  • The previous lead generation process was ineffective.
  • Sales conversions were not affected by the innovative approach.
  • The innovative approach was beneficial in terms of efficiency and results.
  • The company has not changed its lead generation process.

Analyze the pattern: If a salesperson's performance is evaluated every month based on new client acquisitions, and you notice that the performance peaks every second month, which could be a likely reason?

  • The salesperson works harder every second month.
  • There is an external factor positively affecting performance every alternate month.
  • Company promotions and offers are likely driving acquisitions every second month.
  • New client acquisitions occur randomly without any particular pattern.

During which month did the company most likely introduce a new marketing campaign? Explain your reasoning based on a pattern where there is a notable increase in sales every April, followed by a gradual decrease until a slight uptick in November, then a decrease again into January.

  • April, because that's when sales peak indicates a campaign.
  • January, since campaigns are often introduced at the beginning of the year.
  • November, to correspond with the uptick in sales.
  • No campaign was introduced; the pattern is coincidental.

    Be fast. Don't get hung up on any questions. Don't get disappointed by your score. This is a reminder that I need to practice much I need to read! Please inform test takers that a calculator will be needed.

    I like the test because it juggles my memory, it made me think of solutions to the arithmetic problems provided. The test should tell someone to be readily prepared with a calculator, because there are a lot of arithmetic problems that needed to be solved, that is one thing I dislike

    Time Limit Was Pretty Rushed

    Thought the time limit of barely over a minute per question was a bit accelerated. Easy questions, just take time to figure out.

    Good questions

    Good questions but data figures load each time when we touch the figure which seems to be uncomfortable

    Sales perspective

    It was moderate to take but I am not familiar with the sales concept so it was a little difficult. Overall it was good.

    I would like to recommend companies to use this method of testing, as these results will make companies aware of how to place their workers
