CEO Makes Potential Employees Take a ‘Snowflake Test’ Before Hiring
Kyle S. Reyes, CEO of The Silent Partner Marketing, claims he makes potential employees take a “snowflake test” before hiring them, in a new article for the New Boston Post.
In the article, Reyes explained how his test works, and what questions it includes.
“I don’t want most people to work for my company. No, seriously. Most people suck,” wrote Reyes. “And I want people to work for me who don’t suck… So I’ve implemented something that is going to give HR managers and the PC Police night sweats. I lovingly refer to it as The Snowflake Test.”
“Anyone who may be a viable candidate for our agency has to take the test before they get an at-bat at an interview,” he continued. “It’s 30 short-answer and essay-style questions that help us to really get to know a candidate. We want to get in their heads. See how they apply logic and reason to different scenarios. See what makes them tick. See if they’d be a good fit for our culture.”
The test includes questions on how the applicant feels about guns, safe spaces, and trigger warnings, as well as some which are more personal and complex.
