Staff working in the retail & FMCG sector will need to be able to think quickly on their feet and be good with both words and numbers so aptitude tests such as those from SHL, Kenexa, Saville Consulting and others are ideal in helping these companies to find the best candidates from their pool of applicants.

Getting Practice for Retail & FMCG Aptitude Tests

It is well known that the more practice a candidate gains in taking aptitude tests (of any style, be it SHL tests, PSL or another brand), the better equipped they become to handle that part of the assessment process at whichever company they are applying for. Taking even a couple of tests of each kind they are likely to face will result in a much greater awareness of the kinds of thinking required.

If you wish to take great practice tests that will enable you to get to grips with the kinds of aptitude and psychometric assessments that companies will expect you to pass, PracticeSHLTests.com recommends the Assessment Day website.
