SELECTION PROCEDURES

Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (MQSQ)
Candidates will be required to complete a MQSQ as part of the employment application at a later time. This MQSQ is designed to obtain specific information regarding an applicant's experience in relation to the Minimum Qualifications (MQ) for this position. The MQSQ will be used to evaluate if the applicant possesses the required minimum qualifications.

Multiple-Choice Written Exam - Weight: 100%
Candidates deemed eligible and admitted to the selection process will be administered a written multiple-choice test designed to measure knowledge, skills and/or abilities in job-related areas. 

Candidates must attain a minimum passing score on this test must be achieved in order to be placed/ranked on the Eligible List. 

The above multiple-choice test component is a standardized exam and, therefore, test questions and test answers are not available for public inspection or review.

Scores attained on this component are "banked" for three years, starting from the date of the examination, and are applicable to both the 4320 and 4321 Cashier positions. This means that, should you apply during this three-year time period for a 4320 and/or 4321 job opportunity, you will not be required to re-take this test component. If the selection process for a future 4320 or 4321 Cashier job announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes this test component, your score on this test component automatically will be applied to that announcement. Please note that separate passing points for this test component will be applied with respect to the 4320 and 4321 Cashier selection processes (i.e., a higher passing point is applied with respect to 0931 HR recruitments). However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score to the other announcement or (b) re-take this test component. Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another 4320 or 4321 Cashier job announcement for which this test component is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.
