How long does the First Line Supervisor (FLS) test last?
The FLS test lasts approximately 4 hours. Although it is a timed test, individuals can move through the test at their own pace, based on specified time-frames within each module.
What information does the selection committee receive based on the applicant’s test performance?
The selection committee receives a Recommended or Not Recommended test result for each candidate.
What are your testing policies?
If candidates are Recommended on the FLS, they will be contacted by a recruiter about the next steps in the hiring process. A Recommended test result is considered valid for a job until the requirements or qualifications of the job change, or the test requirements change. Your test results are valid as long as Ameren uses this test.
All candidates who receive a Not Recommended test result are not eligible to retest for 90 days after the last unsuccessful test attempt. If candidates are Not Recommended on the second attempt, they are required to wait 18 months, and demonstrate that they have pursued developmental activity (e.g., relevant education, experience, work assignments, or project roles) during the 18 months.
All retests are scheduled by invitation only. To retake a test, you must reapply for a new position requiring that test.
Can someone take the individual FLS test if they have not currently applied for a FLS position?
At this point, individual FLS testing is only available to those individuals who have applied for an FLS position and successfully cleared the preliminary screening (e.g., education, experience, etc.).
