I've taken the ADSM tests, it's nothing at all like the ADSM tests.

The questions asked goes beyond what's seen in the prep materials on StoreNet.

It still seemed easy to me. If you're in management, it should be all stuff you can do.

Multiple choice, or do you type in answers?
Type in the answers.

Math test and review scores only determines who gets an interview. It has little to do with who actually gets the job.

I am pretty sure I read that the interview panel plus math test scores is how they 'figure out' who is going to get the job.

Well, you have to get an interview to get the job. So, I would say the math test and IRR have a lot to do with who gets it. If you don't do well on them...you won't get the job.

Wrong. It's stated in the selection process details on storenet, that you're first ranked through a score that's 40% from the math test, and 60% from the internal reference review that our CL's and SM's will do jointly on each candidate, and those scores together determine who they're interviewing. It isn't stated how many will be interviewed per number of open positions, and that will probably vary by market/district. Then, following interviews, candidates are scored again, this time with 50% of total final score from the interview, and the other 50% goes back to the scores of the math test and internal reference review scores combined. Obviously, there will be more to it than that, and I'm sure they'll play with the scores to place who they want in the positions, especially for the accelerated class. But the above is what's been officially stated, so you're mistaken to assume the review and math have "little to do" with the final results.

If the initial ranking comes from a score comprised of 40% math test and 60% internal review, I don't understand how management can tell candidates that they won't be moving onto the next stage in the selection process.

Without results from the math test and internal review, you can't calculate the store.

If you can't calculate the score, you can't determine the initial ranking.

If you can't rank the candidates, you can't identify the top candidates who will move onto the next phase which seems to be the interview.

technically the initial ranking is the application. like someone said earlier they didn't have enough experience using 'people plus hiring' thus were not selected for the IRR/math test.
one of the application questions was how often do you use PPH on a scale of never sometimes always if i remember
they looked for stupid excuses like that on the application to get rid of the long shots or people incapable of asmt in their eyes

I took the math test today, and let me say first off that I was terrible at math in college, but I found the this test to be incredibly simple. All the questions were very basic problems that everyone who strives to be in management should be fully capable of.

I'll admit that the 30 questions in 30 minutes does make you sort of rush, but most of the problems are so simple that it was pretty easy to finish in time. Also, the practice test is a pretty good indicator of what's on the test, in my opinion anyway.

Advice: Print off several copies of the practice test and do them over and over again on any of them that you struggle with.

Make sure you read the problems carefully. Sometimes it isn't asking what you think it's asking if all you do is skim the question quickly.

It was also 45 minutes, not 30. It said most can finish in 30, but they're allotting 45. I basically finished in 30 and used the extra time to recheck all my answers.

The problems were simple, but there were a few that related to each other, so if you get one wrong, you'd have the chance to get others wrong too.

Your countdown time doesn't start until after you read the instructions so make sure you take time to actually read the instructions.
