Pre-Employment Tests for Retail & Logistics

Pre-employment psychometric tests for retail & logistics staff.
Backed by 30 years of scientific research.

In the retail industry, finding the right candidates who can deliver exceptional customer service, adapt quickly to changing environments, and thrive under pressure is crucial. Clevry’s comprehensive pre-employment assessment platform is designed to help retail businesses identify top talent efficiently and effectively.


Personality Assessments:

Easily understand candidates’ personalities to ensure they align with your company culture and customer service expectations. Our personality questionnaires for recruitment evaluate traits such as persuasion, active listening, and service orientation—key qualities for retail success.


Cognitive Ability (Aptitude) Tests:

Measure cognitive ability essential for retail roles, including verbal reasoning (comprehension), problem solving, and numerical reasoning (mathematics). These tests help predict a candidate’s ability to learn quickly and perform tasks accurately.


Situational Judgement Exercises:

Simulate real-life retail scenarios to evaluate how candidates handle customer interactions, sales situations, and conflict resolution. This hands-on approach ensures candidates are ready to excel in their roles from day one.

Seamless Integration and Customization

Clevry’s platform integrates smoothly with your existing HR systems and ATS, making it easy to incorporate our assessments into your current hiring workflow.

Easily customise assessment campaigns to fit the specific needs of your different retail roles, whether it’s for front-line customer service, sales, or management positions.

Advanced Analytics & Reporting

Our platform provides detailed analytics and reporting tools that offer deep insights into candidate performance.

Track progress, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions to continually refine your hiring process. With Clevry, you can be confident that you’re selecting candidates who not only meet the job requirements but also fit well within your team and organisational culture.

User-Friendly Experience and comparisons

Designed with both recruiters and candidates in mind. Candidates can complete assessments easily, while HR teams can set up and manage tests with minimal effort.

This approach helps maintain a positive candidate experience, which is crucial in a competitive retail job market.
