About The Merchants Pre-employment Integrity Test

The Merchants Pre-employment Integrity Test, proven over 30 years in the marketplace and further validated by two Cornell University studies, is based on the principle of cognitive dissonance – the justifying of dangerous and high-risk behaviors. Cornell’s two studies, the most recent released in November 2009, concluded that the use of behavioral testing can generate an ROI of 846%. When applied consistently and in conjunction with the traditional background screening tools also offered by Merchants, the Merchants Integrity Test is found to be highly effective at identifying those job candidates who should be eliminated from further consideration in the applicant pool.
