    NEW way to assess job applicants

    1) Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window.
    2) Then send 2 or 3 candidates into the room and close the door.
    3) Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours, and then analyze the situation:

    If they are counting the bricks, put them in the accounting department.

    If they are recounting them, put them in auditing.

    If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in engineering.

    If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in planning.

    If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in operations.

    If they are sleeping, put them in security.

    If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in information technology.

    If they are sitting idle, put them in human resources.

    If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in sales.

    If they have already left for the day, put them in marketing.

    If they are staring out of the window, put them in strategic planning.

    If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in upper management.


    If the bricks disappear and nobody knows where they went, put them in the warehouse.

    If they point at the bricks and ask "what are those things," send them to Corporate Headquarters!


    If they s**t more bricks then send them to the government regulatory agency!


    If they are yelling at the bricks for not arranging themselves, hire them as production managers.

    If they ask for mortar tell them they have been made obsolete by the internet.

    If they do a six month analysis to determine why the bricks are red send them to the 6 sigma trainer.

    If they send the bricks to Mexico or China to be stacked and then sent back send them to HR to head up committee on Employee Morale.


    If they count the bricks put them in Accounting. If they get the wrong total refer them to the IRS.

    Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in Congress or Parliament.

    I was waiting in vain to find out what position to put them in if they're throwing the bricks out the window. :frown1:

    Gee Rob, I don't know, that wasn't on the list. My guess is product development though. :smile:

    Surely they would be Enron's accountants, Rob?

    If they've made an abstract sculpture of the bricks to express how they feel about being in a closed room for 6 hours with one window, put them in the creative department.

    Enron's accountants would have IPOed 11 subsidiaries and sold the bricks to them at a grossly reduced price. Shares in the subsidiaries would go to the executives of the company, who would then encourage the employees of the company to buy shares of the parent company.

    The subsidiaries would then sell brick management consulting back to the parent at a grossly inflated price. Subsidiary share prices would go up again, at which point the executives would sell their shares before everyone realizes that there were never any bricks in the first place.

    ...if they start speaking in a dial-automated voice about brick products, send them to customer service.

    (Press 1 if your bricks are red...)

    If they have used the bricks to block access to the room - make them the Board of Directors.

    If they can sit there endlessly droning at the bricks from over the phone, put them in phone sales.
