The tests help us be more selective. If they were only available in English it would eliminate half of my employee population.

Wonderlic Tests Evaluate Spanish Speaking Candidates

A strong work ethic, good attitude, and a willingness to learn are qualities J.R. Mencarelli looks for in Doormark employee candidates. As the Human Resources Manager for a company that has a significant Spanish speaking employee base, Mencarelli benefits from Spanish language versions of the Wonderlic Productivity Index and the Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT-R).

The Wonderlic Productivity Index and Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT-R) measure whether candidates have the ability and attitude to do the job, which gives Mencarelli a competitive edge. “The tests help us be more selective,” he says. “If they were only available in English it would eliminate half of my employee population.”

The Wonderlic Productivity Index is especially important because it determines willingness to perform productively and safely. “Safety is so important for us,” Mencarelli admits. “We don’t want people getting hurt or injuring others.”

The Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT-R) tells him whether applicants have the ability to follow directions and learn a new job, which is also key to success at Doormark. “Employees are working with $300,000 machines,” he says. “They need to be able to learn how to operate and maintain them safely.” But most importantly, Mencarelli wants to know which candidates are willing and excited to work—the Spanish language Wonderlic tests allow him to do that.
