The New Employee “Personnel Test”

Today’s post was written by a guest historian, Dodie, who helps catalog our collection once a week here at Coppes Commons.


This was used to test the ability of potential new employees at Coppes Inc.

Seeking employment at Coppes – Inc. in May of 1964 could be a “mind-boggling” experience. After reading the first page of “Instructions” and seeing that a person only had twelve minutes to do the test, I wonder how many people passed and received employment.

Some of the questions are very easy – some need much more thought and discernment. I challenge you to read through to question # 50 and see how many you can answer correctly. Perhaps #17 and # 26 could cause a bit of THINKING!!

Good luck and have fun. Remember you only have 12 minutes.
