Hi, I’m Tal, JobTestPrep’s Pymetrics games expert. Have a question? Feel free to contact me at:

What is UPS Pymetrics Assessment?

The first and almost only stage in the UPS package handler hiring process is the Pymetrics test. It includes a series of 12 mini-games that are designed to analyze your personality.

While playing the games your every action is being monitored and recorded. Then, it is analyzed and measures 91 personality, cognitive and behavioral traits. All that information is compiled and the system assembles your personality profile, which is compared to the benchmark.

If you pass the desired score, you continue on to the interview. If not - your application is terminated.

Note: You can take the test only once a year. Don't miss your one chance to get it right!

Each game takes around 3 minutes to complete, and the whole assessment lasts about 30 minutes.


How Hard are the Pymetrics Games?

When looking it up online and reading other candidates' reviews, it seems that these games are very easy. That couldn't be farther from the truth.

The games might look innocent, but in reality, they are very hard, especially if you take it unprepared.

For example, one of the main traits UPS is looking for in their package handlers is the ability to stay focused for a long period of time. You handle many packages, and you need to keep your head in the game so you do not make crucial mistakes that will lead to a faulty delivery.

Let's look at a game that measures your ability to focus, and see how hard it really is.

Arrows Game

In this game, you will be presented with sets of flashing arrows in different colors. For some of them you will have to press the arrow on your keyboard that points in the same direction as the middle arrow in the set. For other colors, the direction is that of the side arrows.

During the game you will have to do this for 135 times, without stopping or resting for a second!

To do well in this game you have to accumulate as many correct answers as possible, more than your fellow candidates. And the only way for you to score high, is to practice with accurate simulations.

JobTestPrep's preparation is the ONLY available practice that lets you play the games in the exact same way as you will have to do in the real UPS online assessment. At the end of each practice run you will get a full report analyzing your performance, accompanied by solving strategies and tips. You can practice again and again, until your performance is improved immensely.


How to Pass the UPS Pymetrics Assessment Test?

As you've seen already, the games are not that easy, and actually are very competitive. To get that much needed edge over your competition your best bet is to practice.

The only useful practice is an interactive preparation, with accurate simulations, solving guides and tips.

Here is another example to understand the importance of practicing.

Digits Memory Game

In the UPS Pymetrics Digits game you are asked to memorize as many digits as you can. The digits will flash quickly on your screen, and once finished you will have to recall and type them in the correct order.

In each round the number of digits will increase by one, which will make it harder and harder to memorize as you progress.

It will be similar to this simulation:

This game is designed to measure another important cognitive ability - short term memory. Again, like in the arrows game, the higher you score, the better your chances to beat your competition and get the job.

After you finish a practice run, you will be able to see how well you have done, and keep track of your performance as you practice. You will be able to improve by reading our guide and tips, such as this one:

A solving strategy is important to do well in this game. For example, you can practice memorizing by reading out loud the numbers as they flash on your screen. Your memory performs better when you are active and not passive.

Using our UPS assessment practice pack you will get the chance to practice with full and accurate simulations, just like in the real test. We also provide solving tips and strategies to help you focus your efforts and improve in each and every practice.
