Store Managers

The Client

One of the nation’s leading retail home improvement and appliance stores with over 1,500 locations in North America

The Challenge

This company wanted to enable recruiters with candidate data to help them identify applicants capable of running a profitable multimillion dollar business and deliver an exceptional customer experience with a team of over 150 employees.

The Results

Individuals who performed well on the assessment were rated:

60% higher on performance

88% higher on promotion potential

The Virtual Job Tryout improved quality of hire by predicting factors key to improved customer satisfaction, higher profitability, and a reduction in turnover.

 

Candidate reactions

“This was a great way to inform candidates about the expectations of a Store Manager and what transpires on a daily basis.  I was very excited as I went through the screens and thought of all the ways I could impact sales, people, operations and driving the business to the next level.”

“The VJT covered many topics that pertain to the store manager role, and in a way, gives a real-life example to some of the time constraints felt by managers. I believe it was a good experience and wouldn't mind going through it again.”
