Maersk Professional Learning Indicator (PLI) Test

On the Maersk PLI test you will be given 12 minutes to answer a diverse mixture if 50 questions. These include:

  • Verbal Reasoning – drawing logical conclusions from verbal information
  • Numerical Reasoning – arithmetic questions
  • Diagrammatic Reasoning – inferring a set of rules from visual information and applying them

You will need to work quickly and carefully at the same time. This may sound quite hard but with correct practice you can complete the test successfully.

Maersk Personality Test

Once you have completed the Maersk PLI test you will have to take the Maersk predictive index (PI) personality test. The test isn't timed and each question should be answered thoughtfully. It was once thought that there was no point in practising for these types of tests. However, research has shown that personality tests are no different than any other test in this regard. Practise does make perfect.

The Maersk Application Form

Preceding the aptitude tests is a basic online application form where you are given a chance to upload your CV and cover letter. Although it's not mandatory we strongly advise you to upload a cover letter mentioning the key competencies of the company:

  • Constant Care – Maersk expects candidates to keep abreast of current affairs in order to ensure that the customer is always happy.
  • Humbleness – Maersk demands candidates possess the ability to listen and learn from others.
  • Uprightness – Maersk requires complete honesty in everything you do.
  • Our employees – Maersk wants employees who create the right environment for the best work production.
  • Our name – This is the sum of all the Maersk values — passionately striving higher.

Maersk Telephone Interview

The next stage after the aptitude tests is a 30 minute long phone interview. It is conducted by a member of the HR team and is based on your personal skills and capabilities as measured by the tests.
Some questions to expect during the Maersk telephone interview are:

  • What types of people do you work with best?
  • How do you cope with working with friends, whilst also maintaining a professional approach?
  • Are you able to work independently?

You will also receive feedback on the Maersk online tests you have taken. During the telephone interview you must show not only that you have the required skills but also the motivation and willingness to learn and grow. After taking the practice tests, you can find out how to best prepare for these interviews with our interview preparation services.

The Maersk Second Interview

If you perform well on the first interview, you will be invited to a Maersk office for an additional interview. This will be conducted by an HR manager and any number of managers who want to get to know you. This is a more skills-based interview with questions on your application strengths and weaknesses, as well as your skill levels. This interview is at least an hour in length.

Maersk Graduate Program

The Maersk graduate program is an all-inclusive two-year program that is international in nature; you could be sent to anywhere Maersk thinks you will grow. This is particularly true for the Maersk International Technology and Science (MITAS) program for newly graduated engineers and geoscientists. After the completion of this two-year course, you will be offered a full-time position back in the country you originally applied for.

Preparing for the Recruitment Process 

As you have seen, the aptitude tests play a prominent role in the employee selection process and therefore should be prepared for quite intensively. Our practice packs offer just the kind for thorough and efficient practice that is required to succeed on the tests. We hope you have found the information on this page useful and that you will choose to practise with JobTestPrep.
