How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

This job is really comfortable! Some people get paid very well for trying mattresses in stores. I haven't met anyone yet who does this job so I should ask for the requirements. I have the feeling these will be as follows: being able to fall asleep in the middle of a store, even in the daytime, and to be sociable in order to interview potential buyers who are interested in the product. It seems that this business gives its employees great satisfaction and that they reach a higher degree of accomplishment if we compare them with other employees who are not happy in their work.

I'll be right with you...
