I think many colleges give credit for work experience without requiring examination. But they will require some sort of documentation and maybe a short essay or presentation.
At my college, there was a course specially designed for students who wanted to use their work experience as degree credit. Each student gave a presentation about where they worked, what exactly they did and how this relates to their degree.
It was a fairly easy course with little or no coursework, but we still attended several sessions to turn in paperwork and then to give the presentation.
