I took an online test. 40 per cent consisted of multiple choice questions using tiny 17 KB color photos of objects that were expected to be encountered during site walks. The remainder were multiple choice questions about the Phase I process and what procedures are followed concerning dry cleaning establishments et cetera.

I answered the questions concerning the photos to the best of my ability considering the tiny size and generally poor lighting in the photos. Interpretation of photos of features or pieces of equipment are not the way you do a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment site walk. You go into the site and see the pieces of equipment yourself where you will be able to identify them in context. You will also be able to touch, smell and hear when you are in the field doing the site walk. An example of the inappropriateness of this technique is a dark and tiny photo used of a round dark brown cover atop a concrete pad outdoors next to a building with what looks like possible stains near the cover and other objects with the question "is this significant?". This is not an adequate way to determine if the applicant can identify a Recognized Environmental Condition. The apparent stains could be water from a recent rain. I answered "yes" to be on the safe side because I could not get close to the objects to tell if they were stained from any substance other than water. It was just a photo. Less

HR has a timed computer logic test that they apparently give to everyone interviewing regardless of position.

1 Answers

The test questions were around basic logic and math. Not difficult, just very odd. I've been to dozens of interviews over the past 20 years and I've never experienced anything like this. Less
