Company creates ‘snowflake’ test to weed out job applicants

Screengrab – Fox News

The Silent Partner Marketing firm, a company based in Connecticut, has employed a rather unique “snowflake” test to weed out potential job applicants who get triggered rather easily, BizPac Review reported Wednesday.

According to the report, the company has developed a survey to vet potential employees by asking key questions about themselves.

“I needed a filter to sort through all of that,” said CEO Kyle Reyes during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.”

According to BizPac Review:

Some questions sure to trigger liberals include “What does America mean to you?”

“Someone who’s not proud to be an American” would be disqualified from a job at the company, Reyes noted, adding that applicants should also be pro-Second Amendment as many in the company carry firearms and represent clients who do as well.

Questions on the test also ask job-seekers what “privilege” means to them and “when was the last time you cried and why?”

Reyes elaborated on his search for employees who do not have a sense of entitlement, as many snowflakes do, and are not expecting things to be handed to them. Emotional people are not a problem, Reyes said, as long as he does not have to provide them with a safe space at the office.

“I want people who have a sense of community, who have a sense of heart, who aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves,” Reyes said, “but who able to make an argument and stand by it.”

For example, the company asks applicants what they think of the police.

“We work very, very closely with a lot of police departments and so you need to be comfortable and willing to support the men and women who serve and protect,” Reyes said.  According to Reyes, the company has pledged to donate up to $500,000 worth of services to police and first responders.

Other companies have offered “significant” amounts of money to develop similar tests for them, Reyes added.

According to the company’s website, the organization is based on family, faith and forward thinking.

“Political correctness be damned,” the company says. “We are who we are and have what we have because of a greater good. We might call that greater good by different names…but faith is an integral part of who we are.”

“We aren’t here to kiss your butt and make you feel good about yourself,” the company adds. “We’re here to challenge you. We will call into question what you perceive to be conventional wisdom. We will be candid and uncensored. If something doesn’t work, we’ll tell you and we’ll help you fix it. We aren’t going into business with you to be your friend – we’re going into business with you to help your company explode. The fact that we end up having a beer with you to celebrate the wins we’ll help you bring is simply the icing on the cake.”
