Company introduces ‘snowflake test’ to weed out ‘whiny, entitled’ millenial candidates

From The Independent.

A US company has introduced a “snowflake test” to weed out overly sensitive, liberal candidates who are too easily offended.

The test includes questions such as “What does America mean to you?” and “When was the last time you cried and why?” Many questions are designed to assess a candidate’s stance on America, police, and guns.

Someone who’s not proud to be an American is immediately out of the running, as are people who don’t support the Second Amendment right to bear arms, said Kyle Reyes, who created the test.

“A snowflake is somebody who is going to whine and complain and come to the table with nothing but an entitled attitude and an inability to back their perspective,” Mr Reyes told Fox News.

“We use the test to weed out the sort of people who were inundating us with resumés and didn’t even know what we did.”

Mr Reyes said the tactic had been successful — 60 per cent of applicants to his marketing company drop out when they hear about it.

    Enjoyed your interview on FX and just want to say GOOD FOR YOU!!! We Baby Boomers are horrified by and completely ticked off with the snowflakes and parents who raised them to think they can behave that way and not reap the consequences!
