    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gorton's (Gloucester, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Friendly people, long 2 1/2 hour interview with 6 different people most of them asking redundant questions. They gave me a walking tour through the plant and showed me how all their fish is Pollack that comes from Alaska, which is comical since Gloucester is one of the oldest fishing ports in the country.

    Interview Questions

    • I was required to take a standard timing model skills assessment at Scientific Management Techniques Inc. in Merrimack, NH. First let me say I graduate top of my class from a highly rated technical college and worked the last 8 years as a top performing aircraft mechanic for Lockheed Martin, so needless to say, I am highly skilled. Well, I went and took this assessment test which has 4 15 minute timed tasks where the examiner creates a jam in the machine and you must correct it. I corrected 3 of the jams in 8.5 minutes, 7.5 minute and 4.3 minutes respectively, and had a little more challenge on the 4th task, corrected the jam in 13 minutes. This company reported to Gorton's that I failed the exam, ranked in the 3% percentile and I had poor troubleshooting skills. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, this company doing the testing is a joke!! They don't have a clue what my skills are, and because Gorton's relies 100% on this assessment scoring, I was not offered the position. I have many years of verifiable skills and references to prove my value and have never in my life had trouble finding good jobs, so the big loser here is Gorton's.   1 Answer
