What Is the Morrisons Online Assessment?
The Morrisons Interactive Evaluation is a 25-questions online assessment that measures candidates’ cognitive abilities and expected behaviors. The assessment is conducted by test provider Amberjack (weareamberjack) and is the initial screening stage for candidates applying to graduate/intern/manager positions with Morrisons.
This is how it will look like on your candidate screen on Morrisons’s carrers website:
Test Structure and Question Format
The Morrisons Online Assessment contains 25 questions, divided into 4 types:
- Situational Judgment – 12 questions
- Numerical Reasoning – 5 questions
- Verbal Reasoning – 5 questions
- Video Interview – 3 questions
The questions are not clustered into topics but are “mixed” throughout the assessment. See the Test Interface section for more information.
The assessment is untimed and will reasonably take around 45-50 minutes to complete.
Let’s cover each of the question types in the assessment in detail, with samples.
You will find answers and explanations to all questions, as well as more practice questions in the Free Practice section.
This type of question constitutes nearly half of the assessment, with 12 out of 25 questions.
In this type of question, you are presented with a short work-related scenario, and 4 possible responses. Your task is to choose the most appropriate and least appropriate responses.
Numerical reasoning questions in the Morrisons Assessment are structured as emails from colleagues containing numerical data in graphs and tables, followed by a question. These questions have 4 optional answers, only one of which is correct.
Your task is to analyze the data and provide your fictional colleague with an answer.
The numerical reasoning questions of the Morrisons Assessment often use information overload to distract you. See some examples in the Free Practice section.
Verbal reasoning questions are similar in structure to numerical ones (email with data and a question). This time, however, the data is given as a short text. These questions have 3 optional answers, only one of which is correct.
In the video interview questions of the Morrisons Interactive Evaluation you will be requested to video record your answer to 3 rather standard interview questions.
The test invitation will be sent to you by email from Morrisons HR immediately after you complete your application. It will include a link to the assessment leading to test provider Amberjack’s website.
Note that it will also include a link to several sample questions. It’s easy to miss that link, so pay attention.
The Morrisons Online Assessment is divided into 4 sections:
The first 3 sections contain a combination of situational judgment, numerical, and verbal questions. Each section includes:
- 4 situational judgment questions
- 1-2 numerical questions
- 1-2 verbal questions
A brief video presenting life as a Morrisons employee will appear before each section. You may skip these videos if you like. You may use a calculator for the numerical questions.
After completing the first three sections, you will be able to take a short break, after which you will be presented with 3 interview questions.
You can prepare your answers for as long as you like but will have only 2 minutes to record your response.
