I have gone against the tests on occasion and hired someone based upon a "gut feeling", but none of those hires have worked out. It is clear that my gut instinct (from 20 years of experience) is not as accurate as your tests! It's not a surprise your tests have now become the de facto standard for all of our sales offices."
Thank you for your help!
"Thank you for all of your assistance - you have definitely made this process as painless as possible. We would not be where we are right now without you. I would likely have become disgusted after the 10th resume and quit!"
"I have to admit I was hesitant when we first got together. The concept of assessments felt like reading tea leaves. However, you have really opened my eyes to the value they can provide.
Your assessments have certainly made an impact in our sales process from a hiring perspective. Since we started working with you, our monthly sales run rate has nearly doubled. I can't assign a specific percentage of that sales growth to our work together, but I know it has been an important factor.
During the internet bubble, everyone was winning. Anyone who was in sales back then has a resume that looks great. This makes it hard to flush out the people who can really do the services value sell. You have helped us find these people, and avoid others that we might have hired in the past who would have been mistakes.
Our company has worked with a lot of consultants in the past, and paid thousands of dollars in consulting fees. You are the only consultant who has really made a difference in our business.
I'm looking forward to expanding our use of assessments beyond sales, marketing and recruiting, and into the technical and management aspects of our business."
"Working with you has been a pleasure! We have always had difficulty hiring good salespeople. Since we started using your services, our sales force has been increased with some very solid people. It has also been interesting to see how the correlations match up with our own top sales professionals. We have since used your services to qualify our customer service representatives and the results have been gratifyingly similar.
Anyone who is not using your tools when hiring these types of employees is doing their company a disservice!"
"From a management standpoint you have really provided a value add to me personally, starting at the candidate screening process, through the online testing solution you offer, to helping me think through more effective techniques to manage my sales team."
"Great service, speedy assessments, great candidates, 2nd interviews here we come, Thanks!"
"We are a small technology services company of four people. When we hired our first salesperson, we realized how important it was to make the right hiring decision. We had our finalists take Alan’s sales tests, which helped us to understand more about each candidate’s sales aptitude, and helped to keep the hiring process objective. However the best part was the time Alan spent on the phone with me giving real, practical advice that gave me confidence in the interviewing and hiring process. He even shared knowledge on other sales topics. Talking with Alan has given me tremendous excitement about getting our business to the next level, since I know that I have an expert resource to help us with our sales answers."
"The assessment process has allowed us to highlight the traits that drive success in our organization. By using these tests, we have also been able to source, hire and train people that possess a skill set that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of our company. I would highly recommend the process to anyone interested in reducing turnover and poor hiring decisions."
"MySalesTest.com is very collaborative with and responsive to their customers' requests/needs. We are very pleased with our results!"

"What was of great value to us was how your service helped us identify weaknesses (and strengths) in the job candidates that we most likely would not have uncovered on our own. It was apparent that you really helped us to not go with someone who may have been among the 55% and/or 25%!"
"At first I was skeptical that the assessments would give a true picture of a person's capabilities. But, the results have been right on concerning the talents, abilities, and predilections of the people we have assessed that I know well."
"The assessments have been especially helpful with marginal candidates. In the past we used to give these people a try, and many of them wouldn't work out. But, using your assessments during our most recent round of hiring helped us significantly reduce the percentage of new hires that didn't work out."
