- Application Details
I applied in-person – interviewed at Cato Fashions.Interview Details
Heard of position from a friend and went by the store for an application. Had friendly convo with the manager. Brought the app back and was told it looked great and I'd be hearing from them to schedule an interview soon. They called a couple of days later and I went in for the interview.
The first thing I was asked to do as soon as the interview began was fill out an Orion test. I answered as truthfully as I could even though many of the questions are virtually unanswerable in that they lay out scenarios that are impossible to agree or disagree with.
Finished the test and was told to wait while it 'graded' my answers. Once it came back, the manager who was to interview me came over, ashen faced and told me that she didn't understand why but that, even though I had great scores in each section of the test, it was said I "cannot be considered". She said she was extremely sorry, but that if the machine said she couldn't interview me, there was nothing she could do.
Frankly, I decided it was a good thing I didn't even get to interview, as any company that relies solely on a computer's analysis of a bunch of subjective questions isn't a company I want to work for anyway. If they don't trust the people who HAVE passed their 'test' to make their own assessment of candidates, what does that say about the effectiveness of that same 'test'?Interview Questions

- The questions on the Orion test were mostly fluff with a few totally subjective questions thrown in with absolutely no frame of reference. Answer Question
