The Recruiter told me to take the predictive index without thinking about it, just go with my gut. So when I received the test in my email, it was a Friday afternoon, and I just opened it up and blasted through it!. I took maybe 2 minutes to complete it. This turned out to be the wrong way to do it, because I flunked it! Not that you can really flunk i this type of test, but I answered it very sparsely, clicking a couple of traits on the 1st page and then a couple more on the 2nd and then hitting submit.

I was asked about my current compensation.The recruiter wanted me to work for the same base compensation in spite of voicing my concern that the primary reason for the job search was dissatisfaction with the current compensation structure. This is odd because a company should value experience and skills first. The recruiter mentioned that the range I was seeking was within range for the position applied; however, they can't give me that because of my current base compensation.
