ITT we try to figure out the perfect answers to BB's Employment personality test (3)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-02-03 05:59 ID:p9lN0aq9

Scenario: You are applying for a customer service and/or sales clerk position at BB (or a similar store.)

Keep in mind:
-This job requires lots of daily people interaction. You need to be a bubbly, talkative, people person. gasp

-It's not a management position. You need follower skills, not management skills.

-Possible answers are Strongly disagree, Disagree, Agree, and Strongly agree. However, my research indicates that Strongly is worth 2 points while without is only worth one. Therefore, without Strongly you can only get a max of 50%. Thus, all answers really have to be strongly. (So there is only yes or no.)

-You will do anything to help out your workplace, even at the cost of dying. Thus, you won't allow people to steal, etc.

-You don't want them to catch you in lies, either by answering the same sort of question two different ways or by answering a absolute question wrong such as "I never tell a lie!" -everybody has to answer "Strongly disagree" to this one.

D = Strongly disagree with question
A = Strongly agree with question
? = No idea how I'm supposed to interpret this. Input, please.

Here we go, if you think any questions should be answered differently, just include those questions in your post. No need quoting the whole thing:

They probably don't want people too overzealous about thieves, most store's insurance will not cover you if you end up hurt chasing a guy.
