Intelligence level is the first and foremost area of assessment.
Cognitive ability and problem-solving skills have also been included in this area. In this regard, a particular candidate can be tested by a 12-minute test by the dealer for the position of a particular job, as suggested by the Venable. Core personality competencies of a candidate are assessed with the help of an objective measurement in the second area.

The future behavior of the candidate is predicted most effectively by the measurement and analysis of the past behavior of the candidate, as noted by the Venable. In the result, better job-matched employees are hired by the dealerships with the help of such testing. Sales turnover can be slowed down by 30 to 40% with the help of pre-hiring screening and testing.
