Hannaford Bros. has implemented a computer test to screen all prospective entry-level employees at Shop 'n Save stores. The company was spending an average $9 to screen each applicant for an entry-level position, and use of the computer has cut the cost significantly. The system cost Hannaford $30,000 and is projected to save $250,000 in the first year of operation. The computer interview consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and five situation videos, and attempts to gauge friendly and alternative behavior as well as likelihood to stay with the company.
