DS Smith Personality Tests

When taking a personality test, your results may not always reflect your true self. You must keep in mind that a job personality test shows your work persona. The test is not about seeing personas that are revealed in family life or other contexts.

The Microsoft Word test measures your ability to complete tasks in Microsoft Word software. The test is entirely interactive, attempting to simulate how Word is used in the workplace. The test is aimed at applicants for jobs that require the use of Word at its fullest capacity.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Purpose of DS Smith Verbal Tests?

Verbal reasoning psychometric tests are among the most common tests applicants face when applying for a new job. Verbal reasoning is the name given to a range of tests that use written texts to measure your ability to understand, analyse, and interpret information.

Should I Choose "Strongly Agree/Disagree" or "Agree/Disagree in the DS Smith Personality Tests?"

There are different kinds of questions found on personality assessment tests. When given a statement with extreme statements such as "always" and "never," you should answer them with less extreme answers such as "agree" and "not strongly agree." However, there are times during a personality test in which you should choose "strongly agree" or "strongly disagree." You should choose "strongly agree" when the following types of questions are asked:

    • Most people are honest by nature.
    • Most people can be trusted.
    • Very few people steal at work.
    • I cannot remember the last time I lost my temper at work.
    • I rarely worry about how well I'm doing at my job.

You should choose strongly disagree when asked the following types of questions:

  • It is human nature to steal from others.
  • Most people cannot be trusted.
  • Sometimes my co-workers annoy me.
  • I sometimes worry about losing my job because of office politics.
  • Sometimes I don't feel able to handle all my work responsibilities.

What are Some Numerical Reasoning Test Tips?

Check out the following tips for acing your numerical test: Research the test – Find out which test you are taking and then research everything you can about the test. Know your calculator – Learn how your calculator works so you can save valuable time during the test. Brush up on charts and graphs – There will be confusing graphs and charts to trip you up. Practising in advance will help you weed through the tricky data to find the correct answer.

What is the DS Smith Telephone Interview?

This is often a preliminary interview. These questions are essentially competency-based questions. The interviewers are looking for you to provide examples of where you have displayed these competencies in the past. The telephone interview has some advantages over a regular interview - you can wear comfortable clothing, and keep your answers written out in front of you, but it can also contain the same pressure as an interview when it comes to answering questions.

Be prepared – It is essential that you take the time to understand and practise the types of questions that will appear on the test. JobTestPrep can help you become familiar with popular question formats and improve your skills so there are no surprises on test day.

What is DS Smith Assessment Centre?

An assessment centre is often a day that constitutes the final stage of the application process. These assessment days will either take place at the employer’s offices or at private centres. You are evaluated through a series of assessment centre exercises, including both individual and group tasks. These give your prospective employer a rounded profile of your competencies and an insight into your performance in the workplace.
