Siena Reasoning Test

The basic Siena Reasoning Test (SRT) measures intelligence. There are 40 questions, to be answered within 40 minutes. Cognitive ability assessments include the following:

  • Processing and applying information
  • Reasoning
  • Integrating knowledge
  • Drawing inferences
  • Making decisions

Logic-based reasoning is at the heart of the SRT. The exam items mirror the same logical thought processes as those that are needed for effective job performance. No prior knowledge of the subject matter contained in the various passages presented is necessary for answering any test questions.

Merck Office Assessment 

Microsoft Office (Excel & Word) assessments are used by many hiring companies in their employee selection processes. These tests allow employers to carefully assess whether you have the necessary Microsoft Office skills required by the position. Scoring low on one of these tests will likely hinder your chances of getting hired. Therefore, it is imperative to prepare in order to do well. In case of administration positions, office knowledge and skills are valuable for the day to day work. Practicing them will be good for you even if you don't have an office pre-employment test. 

Merck Situational Judgement Test

Situational judgement tests (SJTs) are a popular psychological tool used by assessment companies, employers, and organizations to evaluate applicants' behavioral and cognitive abilities when introduced with hypothetical, daily work-related situations. SJTs do not consist of one uniform format and do not focus on strict criteria, but rather they serve as a tailored evaluation tool for a variety of positions and business sectors. Therefore, different companies and diverse positions within an organization require different questions and formats.

Merck Personality Test

A strong handshake is not all you need in order to land your dream job. Merck also administers a personality test, as part of the hiring process. The tests generally range around 200 questions and give the employer a stronger sense of whether you are the right personality for the position and the company work culture at large. True, while there are no right and wrong answers, the tests are designed to measure your creativity, honesty, ethics and overall personality.
