The first step in the CVS hiring process is the application. It's important to note that your application is going to be screened by an applicant tracking system (ATS) for keyword-specific phrases, so be sure to align your resume, CV, and application answers with the job description.

These tests are required to ensure that your credentials check out and to make sure that CVS is hiring solid employees who will promote general safety throughout the company and their work.

Shaker Virtual Job Tryout is utilized during CVS's assessment portion of the hiring process.
The Virtual Job Tryout Assessment uses predictive modeling to assess your job-related performance and behavior. It introduces you to the job-related skills you will need, in addition to job-related situations. The results of the assessment are then passed along to employers, where they are able to measure what type of worker you might be.
The Standard Virtual Job Tryout Assessment is an online, interactive pre-employment test that is composed of eight sections. It contains multiple-choice questions, fill in the blanks, and short excerpts. Each section's length can vary as the questions are job-related.
