Kyle Reyes, The Silent Partner Marketing’s CEO, has created a way to separate the applicants with a strong work ethic from those with an entitlement snowflake mentality and of course liberals are crying!
“I realized that pretty quickly … and I also realized it was a time suck on my staff and me to be weeding through endless piles of paper trying to find the handful of people who actually want to hustle for a living and would be a great fit for our company,” he continued.
“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,’” he wrote. “Anyone who may be a viable candidate for our agency has to take the test before they get an at-bat at an interview.”
Reyes speaks to the hosts of Fox and Friends:
Reyes wrote about the process in an op-ed for the New Boston Post.
“You’d better put on your safety pin. This article is sure to trigger some of you. Why? Because … gasp … you’re about to get some real talk from someone who makes hiring and firing decisions every single day.”
“I lovingly refer to it as ‘The Snowflake Test,’” he wrote. “Anyone who may be a viable candidate for our agency has to take the test before they get an at-bat at an interview.
“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.”
Among those questions?
Outside of standard benefits, what benefits should a company offer employees?
What are your feelings about employees or clients carrying guns?
What are your feelings about safe spaces in challenging work environments?
Should “trigger warnings” be issued before we release content for clients or the company that might be considered “controversial”?
How do you feel about police?
When was the last time you cried and why?
What are your thoughts on the current college environment as it pertains to a future workforce?
What does “faith” mean to you?
You see someone stepping on an American Flag. What happens next?
“Since I launched this ‘filtering’ process, if you will, I’ve gotten a tremendous amount of whining from the general public,” Reyes wrote.
“I was scolded by a woman on the phone yesterday who told me she wouldn’t take the test and ‘shame’ on me for making people take a test to come work for us. She ‘demanded’ I remove the test or risk losing out on ‘perfect employees’ like herself.”
I think this is priceless. Entitlement mentality is destroying productivity in this country. People do not really want to work hard and they still expect to just get paid. They want the easy road. Thank you Mr. Reyes for injecting some normality into the system. Suck it up liberals and get to work. Quit complaining about every little thing that “makes you uncomfortable” and quit being such weak pansies! There! I said it!
