Just turned down a job opportunity that wanted me to do a crazy case study/data analysis task at the HR screening stage (haven’t even met the hiring manager yet) and I don’t feel bad at all ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼

At the HR screen is the only crazy part of this post. I can’t imagine hiring someone beyond entry level without understanding their output in a controlled way. It’s not free work... it’s ensuring a poor hire isn’t made.

@Director 1 I totally agree with you. I meant to say that most of them aren't doing what they're supposed to and that's why sometimes poor hires are made.

Happened to me a few times. In Chicago. And in Pittsburgh. Huge red flag. Those agencies utilize you pre-hire and never end up following through with the hiring process

If you want a poor hire, don’t pay your candidates for “tests” #nofreework

Eh I used to scoff at the idea of case studies like this then I interviewed for my dream job on the client side and they asked for one. It took a few hours after work for a few days and now I couldn’t be happier. I guess if you want it bad enough you’ll do it. If you aren’t willing to do it, you probably don’t want the job that much.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
