Selection Procedures

Supervisory Written Examination (Weight 100%):

Candidates will be administered a written multiple-choice examination that will measure knowledge, skills and abilities relating to various supervisory practices, procedures and principles, along with customer service ability and written communication skills (e.g., grammar and spelling).

 

This is a standardized examination and, therefore, test questions and test answers are not available for public inspection or review.

 

The score you achieve on this examination shall be valid and "banked" for three years, starting from the date of the examination. This means that, during this three-year time period, you will not be required to take this test again should you apply and be found eligible for a future announcement for which this particular test is used.

Please note this test is used for other supervisory classes therefore your test score may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments. If the test for this future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination, your score will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test. Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which this test is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.
