Job applicants for a Connecticut-based marketing company have a unique “snowflake” test to pass before being hired.
The Silent Partner Marketing firm is taking on liberal “snowflakes” in an effort to weed out the hundreds of applications they have received. The company has developed a survey to vet potential employees by asking key questions about themselves.
“I needed a filter to sort through all of that,” Kyle Reyes, CEO of Silent Partner Marketing said on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. He explained that he was looking for employees who would fit the “culture” of the company and the clients they represent.
Some questions sure to trigger liberals include “What does America mean to you?”
“Someone who’s not proud to be an American” would be disqualified from a job at the company, Reyes noted, adding that applicants should also be pro-Second Amendment as many in the company carry firearms and represent clients who do as well.
Questions on the test also ask job-seekers what “privilege” means to them and “when was the last time you cried and why?”
Reyes elaborated on his search for employees who do not have a sense of entitlement, as many snowflakes do, and are not expecting things to be handed to them. Emotional people are not a problem, Reyes said, as long as he does not have to provide them with a safe space at the office.
“I want people who have a sense of community, who have a sense of heart, who aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves,” Reyes said, “but who able to make an argument and stand by it.”
One of the test questions asks applicants how they feel about the police.
The marketing company has pledged to donate up to $500,000 worth of services to police and first responders, Reyes shared.
“We work very, very closely with a lot of police departments and so you need to be comfortable and willing to support the men and women who serve and protect,” he explained.
Reyes revealed that other companies have offered him “significant” amounts of money to design a similar test for them. Some creative requests have come in the form of snowflake-themed gifts like a snowblower and large cut-out snowflakes.
The company’s website explains that their organization is based solely on family, faith and forward thinking.
“Political correctness be damned. We are who we are and have what we have because of a greater good,” the description states.
