The Hiring Process of A Keyence Technical Sales Representative

After applying to a technical sales representative position at Keyence, you will be required to go through two screening stages:

  • The Wiesen Technical Assessment
  • The HireVue video interview

Let's talk a bit about each and how to best prepare.


The Wiesen Technical Assessment at Keyence

Once your application was recieved, you will have 2-3 days to complete the Wiesen Technical Assessment. It is a mechanical aptitude test that contains 60 questions to be answered within 30 minutes.

Although the test does not require any technical background, it requires familiarity with basic mechanical and electrical principles.

What Score Do You Need to Pass the Wiesen Technical Assessment?

The minimum threshold for being a Keyence technical sales representative is 46 questions correct (of 60) in the Wiesen Technical Assessment. You should remember, however, that this is the MINIMUM. Eventually, successful candidates will be selected from the top tiers of test takers. 

How to Pass the Wiesen Technical Assessment in 2-3 Days

It may initially seem that there is no actual way to practice for a test that is only 2-3 days away. However, it is never too late to prepare, if you know how. That is why we developed the 3-day study plan for the Wiesen Technical Assessment, especially suited for Keyence candidates.

The plan incorporates several key principles to make the practice most effective and quick:

  • A Diagnostic test to get a practice method personalized for YOU
  • Distinction between “big” and “small” test topics to focus your effort correctly
  • Subject-specific practice tests to deeply understand the test’s physical principles
  • A full-length simulation of the Wiesen Test to wrap everything up

Keyence Technical Sales Representative Interview Process

In this stage, your Keyence interviewers are looking for you to give examples from your previous experience to back up your answers. Thus, ahead of the interview, review your resume and prepare a list of examples that can be used to demonstrate your skills against the competencies Keyence is looking for. Our Interview preparation can help you excel during the interview stage of Keyence technical sales representative's recruitment process.
