About the Customer service test

Hiring employees with exceptional customer service skills can drive customer loyalty and satisfaction, win new customers for your business, and boost your organization’s revenue, reputation, and customer retention rates. Candidates with strong customer service skills know how to interpret customer concerns, diagnose problems, and provide effective remedies and solutions, all while serving as the face of your organization.

This customer service test evaluates candidates’ ability to understand customer inquiries and identifying root causes, interact with customers using appropriate language and attitude, determine effective and efficient solutions to customer issues, and give positive impressions that improve customer satisfaction.

This test will help you identify candidates with a strong aptitude for resolving customer problems. The test provides real-life scenarios typically encountered in customer service and asks candidates to choose the best way to respond in each situation. Candidates who do well on this test will be able to provide assistance in a personable, patient, and professional manner that follows your company’s protocol.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 10 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
