Sears Assessment Test Format

The Sears pre-hire assessment test asks anywhere between 20 to 100 questions and should take you approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The online assessment consists of questions regarding your background and work experience, as well as situational judgment questions. Additionally, you may be asked to take a follow-up personality test.

The assessment questions vary depending on the position for which you apply.

Sears Sales Assessment

If you are applying for a cashier or sales position, you will be presented with an audio and visual test that contains situational judgment scenarios. In these scenarios, you are asked questions by virtual customers and are required to respond to the best of your ability and judgment. JobTestPrep’s Sears pre-hire package includes practice questions for the pre-hire assessment test as well as step-by-step questions and explanations to help you understand the material.

Sears Management Assessment

When applying for a managerial position, the test will most likely consist of around 100 questions and will be comprised of four main components:

  1. Personality test - The personality questions assess whether you fit the company profile and if you are compatible with the ideals and principles that drive Sears. A manager represents the company and must therefore agree with Sears' goals.
  2. Situational judgment tests - The management test has a lot of situational judgment questions regarding employee conflicts and how you would deal with the situation. You will also be asked to handle clientele problems and client-employee conflict.
  3. Math test - Understanding how to read graphs is essential for the assessment test. You will be given quarterly profits and asked to correctly assess the information. You must provide answers based on your understanding. There will also be questions about calculating revenue and expenditure.
  4. Organizational skills test - As a manager, you will also be quizzed on organizational skills by creating shift schedules, employee training schedules, and more.
