Common Hiring Mistakes: Hiring good
salespeople is one of the hardest things that a business owner or manager does.
People sometimes tend to hire a person with whom they "feel comfortable", who is
"like them", who "looks good", or just someone with "industry knowledge". None of

invite only the top candidates to the actual interview. Avoid frustration and aggravation.

hire better salespeople and sales managers but should be used for
recruiting experienced sales executives only. A conventional sales personality test
or sales aptitude test may be "blind" to the impact of a job applicant's
experience, sales training and knowledge of sales techniques, but a real sales assessment
test like The JOY Sales Tests (tm) is not blind to sales experience and
practical sales knowledge. You may use our potent sales tests either as pre-hire
sales assessments or as post-hire sales team evaluation tools. Learn more about how to hire sales reps.
