Pre-employment tests are always tough to answer and they are designed to throw you off guard by throwing you a curveball question.

Some time ago, a US-based firm created a set of questions that are designed to flush out millennial’s who feel are entitled to something. Modern day America is becoming a country where young people feel they can whine every time something doesn’t suit them. This generation is effectively throwing away the spirit of America out of the window by feeling entitled to an opinion every time something doesn’t go their way – is what these people say.

That why this US company had enough of job applicants who don’t share the same cultural and political perspectives as everyone else in the industry and created the snowflake test.

The snowflake test is a series of questions designed not to judge an applicant by their skills or willingness to work, but rather judge them by moral and legal standards.

It is a way for companies and firms to determine if they like the applicant or not by enquiring about their political perspectives. The snowflake questions should not be a measuring point for an applicant’s willingness to work or his qualifications. The snowflake questions are an ill-conceived effort to discover if an applicant matches their criteria for hiring. It’s used to discover if the applicants share their political and modern-day American views, and should not be a deciding factor!

What are the tricky snowflake test questions you might encounter?

Unlike most curveball questions designed to throw you off guard, snowflake questions are meant to effectively disqualify you from the job process if they don’t hear what they like. You would be surprised at how many snowflake questions we managed to acquire from various applicants.
