Job assessment!!!

I had to take a job assessment which is a group of questions to see if you are "eligible" to take a job. I answered very positively on the questions but it still said I wasn't a canidate on the screen after the assessment. Have you ever take one of those?

  • Several.

    Was it based on skills or personality? Sometimes companies look for specific personality traits. I strongly recommend that you ask for a copy of the test and an explanation of the results.

  • Yes, I have taken the assessment on JcPenney a couple of times and I am not eligible for a postion with them. Those tests drive me crazy because some places are missing out on loyal good workers because of a stupid assessment. Sorry but I have been denied jobs just because of the assessment. otherwise the managers would have hired me.
