So I went for this job interview and they took me into this small room with a computer. I was told to put to sets of 18 phrases and words in order rom strongly agree to strongly disagree. At first glance the list seemed normal with things like
The universe is beautiful. A newborn baby. A brilliant scientist. My job is helpful to the world.
My job means nothing. I am frustrated by my lack of knowledge of the universe. I contribute nothing to society. My work environment is terrible.
Slavery Burning witches at the stake I curse the day I was born Global terrorism Torture
The last five shocked and stumped me. I wasn't sure how to order them since they all seem really awful. I went with slavery as last , I forgot what I did with the others. Does anyone know of this test? In my mind I imagine it focus more on where you place the middle of the pack work related questions.
It sounds just like really crazy though. Most jobs are becoming rediculous in their screening. I was denied for some reason 4 times at a warehouse 6 years ago, the possition I was applying for was a packer, pulling product off a shelf and stuffing it in boxes before pushing it off onto the belt. They asked questions like that is why I'm asking. It just seems stupid to ask about burning witches and slavery when the job has nothing to do with either.
I sure haven't seen or administered this particular test, but it sounds a lot like some others. However, the phrases in this one have more capacity to shock the test taker, I think - perhaps a reflection of our culture.
Sometimes, corporations pay to have a test made for them alone. It still is usually tweaked until internal and external reliability, etc., are acceptable. Has anyone else out there seen this test?
Yeah it's true, seeking job is not really very easy for someone who need it most. Like here in the Philippines, they posted it that they need a personnel without specifying your position and when you begin to work, your job is not the same as what you are expecting for and the salary is ................ forget it..... you just turn into frustration.
I got the job I'm psyched because it's a huge pay increase for me. Like $20,000. So I guess i put the right order down lol. I'm going to ask them about the test when I go in so I'll post what they say about it.
I didn't have to interview for my first job at Jimmy John's, but I did have to briefly interview for my job as a dishwasher. I don't consider that a REAL interview though because I didn't have to dress up, there were...
I have a job interview this afternoon, and while I've been through the entirety of the job application and interview process in middle school, it's still a daunting task for me. For years I've simply been doing charity...
