About the Purchase executive (overseas procurement) test

A great purchase executive can help you achieve business savings by helping you choose suppliers with the best prices and terms. They can identify the goods and services that are crucial to your company, and take appropriate steps to secure your supply chains by diversifying supply.

This purchase executive test evaluates candidates’ ability to plan and place orders, ensure on-time-in-full (OTIF) delivery of goods, onboard and manage suppliers, and handle price changes and other commercial issues that may arise.

This screening test will help you identify purchase executives who can procure locally sourced materials and services, executing a complete procure-to-pay (P2P) cycle. Candidates who do well on this test will have 1-2 years of experience in procurement, and be able to plan sourcing, place orders, arrange logistics, and handle various commercial issues. Successful candidates will be able to understand price escalations and benchmark prices along various suppliers. They will be capable of assisting the strategic sourcing department in supplier onboarding.

In addition, successful candidates will be capable of sourcing materials from overseas suppliers, having knowledge of international trade and logistics, shipping, letters of credit, and Incoterms®.

Review from G2

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.
