Frustrated.

What is the point in being smart, well educated when most of the employers around me only hire based on how well you do on a personality test?

Hi Mike! Every company has their own thing which they value. I am not sure where you are applying but to them, they must want to work with a certain type of person. Don't lose heart! If it isn't for you apply elsewhere and keep looking!

I've been blocked from several jobs after taking a "morality test" - I don't know what else to call it. The questions have nothing to do with anything technical - they're all about what you would do if you encountered a co-worker stealing or something of that nature. I've answered those questions like I think anybody should answer them, and I immediately get a response saying "we're not moving forward". This happened when I applied to work at a gas station, a Pep Boys, and for Sears as a repair technician. I have no clue how anyone gets beyond that stage.

Don't you mean what is the point of proving your education if everyone wants 10+ years experience? Who the hell has that much?

Education is good no matter what! It sounds like they are also looking for employees who have good people skills as well.

Amen They reduce everyone to the lowest common denominator To them we are expendable We are a necessary evil And where they can they find ways not to need us at all like using AI and robotics Global Market means cheap labor Read the book Dying for a Paycheck It is tough truth but you will get a real view of what we are up against As the author writes jobs are getting more and more precarious with shift work with uncertain scheduling and low paying gig economy

It's a bias way to rule out ppl who don't fit culturally.
