Candidate Testing That Works

Today’s technical and mechanical jobs are more challenging than they’ve ever been. Employees are no longer focused on just one task or role; they’re also solving more complicated problems, managing multiple responsibilities, dealing with customers, and trying to keep up with changing demands

Candidate Little White Lies

Although a candidate may claim to have expertise in certain areas, it’s hard for prospective employers to know whether they actually have those skills. How can you be certain that the applicants in front of you can do the work required of them? How do you know whether they have the knowledge and experience they claim? The answer lies in accurate candidate testing.

What Is Mechanical Aptitude Testing?

A mechanical aptitude test measures the candidate’s general mechanical knowledge and ability in a valid, reliable, and objective manner. Mechanical aptitude tests are frequently given to job candidates in engineering, construction, manufacturing, transportation, automotive, technology, and similar industries.

The tests evaluate the fundamental mechanical skills, knowledge, and conceptual ability needed for the job. They also determine up-front whether training is required and, if so, how much the candidate might need.

Electrical aptitude, mechanical reasoning, measurement and math concepts, physical properties, spatial reasoning, and tool knowledge are among the subjects covered in mechanical aptitude testing.

Who Should Use Mechanical Aptitude Tests?

When you’re hiring mechanics, engineers, HVAC technicians, plumbers, construction workers, and electricians, it’s critical to know right away if your job applicant has the necessary mechanical skills for the job. If you can’t ascertain this quickly, it may result in hiring people who could ultimately cost the company a lot of money in terms of poor performance, productivity loss, staff turnover, errors, and injury to themselves and others.

Bad decisions have secondary consequences too like reputational damage. Using one of our mechanical aptitude tests as part of your applicant screening and selection process can help you determine which applicants have the best chance of success.

Can Mechanical Aptitude Testing Help My Business?

Yes, it can. Among the most in-demand occupations are engineering, technology, and the construction industry. Jobs in any of these fields require strong mechanical or technical aptitude. With the increased use of technology, job requirements have also become more complex over the past 30 years; employees in these positions now need to possess a variety of skills, including mechanical reasoning.

While a candidate might claim to have experience in these areas, you need to know that they have the ability and proficiency to meet your expectations. How can you be sure that the candidate can handle all mechanical and electrical aspects of the job? The mechanical aptitude test is a simple and inexpensive way to determine this.

Accurately Determine Candidate Potential

Effective candidate testing can save your organization both time and money by allowing you to screen technical candidates accurately and fast. Once you have narrowed down the field, you can then devote more time to an in-depth screening of each individual’s skills and capabilities.

For example:

Individuals with good spatial abilities understand how to “translate” a schematic or blueprint into real-life applications. They can organize well and can convert abstract concepts into clear visuals

Mechanically inclined individuals are proficient with building and troubleshooting machines and engines. They might also create products that address common problems.
Strong verbal abilities, oftentimes not assessed during the hiring phase, enable individuals to communicate critical ideas effectively to the team. Why not test candidates for this critical skill before you put them on your payroll?

Well-designed and validated tests can help you to swiftly ascertain whether potential employees possess the abilities you are looking for, in which roles they will best succeed, and where additional training or mentoring might be needed.
