"Since partnering with SalesDrive, it has unified our metrics and standards in our recruiting process across our national footprint. The DriveTest® allows our training team to execute with a higher level of performance because the DriveTest® allows us to choose candidates with the unteachable characteristics, and that is Drive. In fact, our new hires outperform veteran reps, consistently quarter after quarter and we attribute a portion of that to hiring the candidates that have something inside of them that can’t be trained, and that is Drive."

How The DriveTest® Works

The DriveTest® is the only pre employment, online sales test designed to over weigh the most valuable aptitude of all salespeople... the ability to develop new business. 

Our research has found that successful new business developers share three innate personality traits that cannot be taught, you either have them or you don't by adulthood... so training is virtually a waste of money unless this core aptitude is in place.

The DriveTest® therefore heavily emphasizes these three characteristics.

  • 1. Need for Achievement
  • 2. Competitiveness
  • 3. Optimism

The DriveTest® measures each of these three elements, combines them into a total Drive score ranging from 1-5.
This score indicates whether your sales candidate has the potential to be a top producer.

1. If the sales test score is a 1 or 2: The candidate is not hardwired to be a successful "hunter" salesperson. Don't waste your time or money on interviewing this candidate.

2. If the sales test score is a 3: Let's take a deeper look at this candidate. There are several behavioral interview questions you can ask to gauge if this candidate is built for long-term sales success.

3. If the sales test score is 4 or 5: The candidate has the necessary personality makeup for success as a "hunter" salesperson. Bring him in for a behavioral interview to see if he will be a good fit for your company and the open position.

In addition, The DriveTest® also measures other traits that are important for successful selling Confidence, Persuasiveness, Relationship Skill and Organization.

Why Our Sales Test is Different
The DriveTest® is the only online sales test that heavily weights the three elements of Drive: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism. 

The DriveTest® consists of 42 questions use a Forced-Choice format, which requires the sales candidate to choose which statement is most like him/her. 

Furthermore, the candidate must choose between three options that sound equally positive, making this employment screening more difficult for someone to fake. 

The DriveTest® also includes a Consistency scale, Which warns you if the candidate responds inconsistently, or attempts to fake the test.
