Most unexpected: asking for my high school & college GPA during the interview, and my SAT score on the job application.

1 Answer

My SAT score is nothing to be shy about, but I was not comfortable answering this question. According to EEOC regulations (this is for an HR position after all), a test can only be given for employment if the company can show direct relevance to the duties being performed. Given that the SAT is not designed to predict job performance, not to mention its well-documented gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic biases, I felt this was an obvious example of a "disparate impact" risk to the company, and - frankly - was astonished I was being evaluated today based on something I did when I was 16.

Analytical questions were the most difficult part of the interview. Although they may seem unrelated to the position that you're interviewing for, the interviewers want to understand how you think on your feet and attack problems creatively.

It wasn't so much of a question as a comment. The HR mentioned her passion for HR, and alluded to enjoying talking about HR for fun. I'm afraid I didn't feel the same way--I'm hoping to find more of a passion in my next position. It just felt it difficult to respond, as it was hard for me to relate.

She wanted to know my hr background?
