Testimonials

What Our Clients Are Saying

Be one of many clients who are completely satisfied with the sales hires they made thanks to the DriveTest®.


“I absolutely love this product!  We have hired so many salespeople who would sell themselves in an interview but never lived up to expectations.  SalesDrive has really helped us understand both who we have and who we need.”

Brian HuntCEO, Kore1 Technologies


“As a growing sales organization, hiring became increasingly difficult. Using SalesDrive allowed us to compare the target areas for success in the role, and also measure against our current pool of employees. It’s a simple tool that measures the right characteristics.”
Kristina BajjaniHR Business Partner, Lightspeed

“The SalesDrive test has helped us to identify what type of sales person we are interviewing and in the case of one person we hired, it confirmed that they would be better fit for the account manager role (farmer). It is a nice tool to help identify how we should proceed in hiring for a position.”
Jonathan StaubCEO, TEGUAR Corporation

“Starboard has been using SalesDrive for a number of years now. So far, we have not had anyone disappoint us that has passed the test. For results that we do not understand Dr. Croner is always available for guidance.”
Hans HanssonPrincipal, Starboard Commercial Real Estate

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

The DriveTest® is our online sales test designed to help you objectively identify and hire high-performance salespeople. The DriveTest® measures the most critical personality trait shared by all top-producing salespeople: Drive. Drive is made up of three non-teachable traits: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism. This core aptitude is required for success in sales and The DriveTest® will tell you whether your candidate has this aptitude or not before hiring, saving you time and money.

The key differentiator of The DriveTest® is our intensive focus on the three (3) non-teachable, research-based personality traits essential for success as a Hunter salesperson: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism; collectively known as Drive. We also measure other core skills such as Confidence, Persuasiveness, Relationship Skills and Organization.

Our forced-choice format makes our test unique in that it asks candidates to select a statement that is most like them and a statement that is least like them from three, equally positive statements. This forces the candidate to make some tough decisions and gives you a clear picture of their true intentions. The assessment also includes a built-in Consistency Scale, which provides a warning on the results if your candidate responds inconsistently or attempts to fake the test.

Our sales test was designed specifically for sales roles and does not focus on any other type of position. Learn More

For best results, we recommend having applicants take The DriveTest® as early in the sales hiring process as possible, ideally before the in-person interview, to ensure you are focusing only on candidates with the highest potential. The DriveTest® is like a consumer report, it tells you “Buyer beware!” Be sure to address any red flags revealed by the assessment during your interview. By doing so, you will be much more powerful as an interviewer.

The DriveTest® report is easy to read and interpret. The results are presented using a 1 to 5 rating and color-coded scale.

If the Drive score is a 1 or 2 (red): this candidate is not fit to be a successful salesperson. Don’t waste the time or money interviewing this person.

If the Drive score is a 3 (yellow): take a deeper look into this candidate. Ask behavioral questions during the interview process to gauge whether they are built for long-term success.

If the Drive score is a 4 or 5 (green): this candidate has the core aptitude to be a “hunter” salesperson. Invite this person in for a behavioral interview to see if they are a good fit for the company and open position.

Yes. We conducted a full validation study as part of assessment development. The DriveTest® was validated based on North American high-performing salespeople and we have consistently found it to be strongly predictive of sales performance. The DriveTest® Technical Manual is available upon request.

Yes. The DriveTest® is designed for evaluating sales candidates and current salespeople. However, when reviewing the results, turn your focus to the Production Builder Report instead of the DriveTest® Report. The Production Builder Report is our developmental guide used for evaluating and managing current salespeople and it is included with your assessment purchase at no additional charge.

This article, published by Michael Mercer, Ph.D., explains why we recommend that you do not share the results with your candidates, and provides a useful protocol.

Our free trial offers:

  • – One complete DriveTest® assessment (same as the paid version, $295 value)
  • – The DriveTest® Report (for sales hiring)
  • – The Production Builder Report (for tailored training and mentoring)
  • – Complimentary Strategy Session with Dr. Chris Croner, Sales Psychologist

Our sales test is scored based upon the universe of full-time salespeople, rather than presidents, managers or senior executives. So, when someone in a management role takes the test, we remind them that managers often test very differently than salespeople.

For example, on Need for Achievement (a highly weighted variable), we are looking for salespeople who are striving for career advancement, whereas managers and senior executives are typically already near or at the top of the organization.

If you would like to review the test personally, we ask that you please keep in mind the above caveats and know that the scores may not accurately reflect your personality and career goals.

It is not uncommon for current, high producers to occasionally record average to low Drive scores. Keep in mind that your top producer is being selected from a very small database, that is, your own company. If your top producer is lagging behind the industry leading top performers, they might not score high in Drive. Remember, your goal is to recruit and hire people who score high in Drive against the world, not just against salespeople in your own company.
