But, as we're growing so quickly (130 people when I started 4 months ago and now we're up to almost 200, and have opened 2 new international offices, with another one in the works) and implementing things in anticipation of going public, we're evaluating our own hiring methods. About 70% of the company hires are employee referrals.
They do the typical things: background check, references, etc.... The developers have skills based testing they submit. But I just checked my email from home and they sent out this message to everyone saying that they're going to implement a test for all new hires. And what better way to see what they're going to get for candidate results, than to have all the current employees take this test.
So I go to the website and it's an emotional profiling test. I've had to take these in the past and it's not a problem of passing/not passing-----
But----- does it seem odd to anyone else that they are asking existing employees to take this test? I guess I look at it and think, if you're trying to see what results you're going to get back--- then isn't that what this company is for? To tell them the historical percentages of pass/fails, interpretations to the answers, etc...?
I don't know, I just closed the browser for now. I'm curious what other people are going to think about this when they see it on Monday.

BTW - this is coming from a person who never had to take anything like this so I don't really know what info they get from it.
