Flex situational judgment test
Situational judgment questions are used to determine the way you prefer to work, and how you deal with different problems.
These questions are based on realistic scenarios, and they present several different possible courses of action that could be taken to solve the issue that is in the scenario.
You’ll have to decide which would be the best course of action to take, and that will be the one that you would take if you were in that situation in the workplace.
In some tests, you will be asked to choose the best course of action, while others might ask you to select the best and worst course of action or rate them in order of effectiveness.
