How to do hiring

August 21, 2009 in Company

It’s not always easy to put the right people in the right job. Thanks to Tom and Ray at CarTalk, we now have this (adapted for espresso machines):

Put all prospectives in a room with nothing but an espresso machine and leave them alone for 2 hrs without any instructions. After 2 hrs, check up on them and see what they’ve done:

  • Those who took the machine apart go to Engineering
  • Those who became jittery without an internet connection go to IT
  • Those who ask you what you’ve paid for the machine go to Purchasing
  • Those who were caught sleeping go to Senior Management
  • Those who don’t even look up go to Security
  • Those who tell you what a great machine you’ve got here go to Sales
