Angular 6 cli ng test command does nothing in pipelines build

I have an Angular 6 project built using the angular cli. I have the default configurations for everything and all my spec files are next to their components as per angular best practices. I followed the steps here to setup my pipeline:

The pipeline always succeeds but the ng test command doesn't do anything. I can run tests fine locally, just not on the pipeline. I also noticed that npm install is really fast, even the first time it was run before anything was cached it only took 30 seconds.

Pipeline file (our project is actually inside a folder called PushWeb inside this repo):

# You can use a Docker image from Docker Hub or your own container
# registry for your build environment.

    - step:
          - node
        script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
          - cp -f /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Toronto /etc/localtime # Change current time zone to Toronto Time zone
          - cd PushWeb
          - npm install
          - npm run test:ci

  run `npm audit fix` to fix them, or `npm audit` for details

Output of npm run test:ci in pipelines (which takes <1s to run):

Then it just goes straight into Build Teardown. Is there some step I'm missing?
