This Equipment Maintenance test will help to identify people across various industries who utilize industry best practices, processes, and procedures to keep machines operating.
When hiring, this Equipment Maintenance test will assess core knowledge and problem-solving skills with an interdisciplinary focus by using real-world scenarios requiring applied expertise across many industries.
This screening test focuses on three broad equipment categories: mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic, and electrical and electronic. Across these areas, questions focus on understanding system function, testing, and adjustment; diagnostics; and overhauling. Additionally, skills associated with inspections are covered in this hiring test, which includes comprehending manuals and failure analysis.
This test is full of images and diagrams of machines, systems, and tools with which an intermediate technician should be familiar. These images are important because on-the-ground skills require visual literacy. Although not every technician may have worked on every type of machine in this test, the machines chosen for questions contain core systems that every intermediate technician should be able to evaluate.
A candidate who performs well in this Equipment Maintenance test will be a technician with a well-developed core skill set. Specifically, this hiring test will help identify those who are capable of producing favorable outcomes under challenging and complicated circumstances.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
