Employee Selection Tools

Make your next hire the right one.

In 2019, the industry turnover rate for convenience store was 88%1 for full-time store associates and 125% for part-time associates, while the cost to hire a full-time associate is $1,716 and $1,421 for a part-time associate. That's a lot of time and, more importantly, a lot of dollars that go wasted—simply because the right hire didn't happen the first time. We know that identifying, hiring and retaining high performing employees are among your greatest challenges as a business. We can help.

NACS tools can save you time and money.

If you're relying on interviews and instinct, then you may be making the wrong hires. Research has demonstrated that the best way to hire and retain top performing employees is to administer tests. Employee screening testing can decrease turnover by as much as 50% by systematically identifying ideal target candidates. And, with better quality hiring practices in place, you can save as much as $11,4002 per store, per year.

Imagine having the tools to determine the best possible candidates before you interview them. NACS Employee Selection Tools (EST) help you get ahead of the interview process, so that you interview only those candidates who are right for the job. Specifically designed for the c-store industry, NACS EST measures critical competencies for success, identifies top-quality, service oriented employees and it takes less than 30 minutes.

It's quick, easy and effective.

Simply administer this test to prospective employees before you interview them. The test asks a series of questions that will determine basic skills, dependability, work ethic and other key attributes of long-lasting, top-performing employees. You can take advantage of our easy-to-use web-based version, or utilize our standard paper version — whichever works best for you.
