If you are seeking a job at major retailers, you WILL be taking this
test. The company that produced the test is called Unicru. The test is
to see if you are qualified to be a cashier, warehouse, sales, etc. If
you fail this test, you will NOT get interviews. One CEO that took the
retail test for his own company failed it. The order of the questions
was a total mess, so I tried to group them. Patterns did emerge, but
what they mean to being a cashier, vs stockroom is not readily
apparent. Millions of people take this test, every year. Can anyone
break this code and tell us what to answer to get the job as stocker,
cashier, warehouse etc? I grouped these as best as I could, but it is
just my own interpretation. Each statement has 4 answers: Strongly
disagree, disagree, agree, strongly agree.
