How would you rate the performance of [applicant], from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest)? What were specific qualities and talent demonstrated on the job by [applicant]? What specific weaknesses did [applicant] demonstrate on the job that we should be aware of? Why did [applicant] choose to leave your company? Did you ever offer [applicant] a promotion prior to his/her departure? We are contemplating to offer [applicant] a job, as (job name). Would you recommend [applicant] for such a job? Our job opening requires a strong team work and willingness to contribute to others. Did [applicant] demonstrate any attitude that could be detrimental to team work? Is there anything else we should know in order to make the most appropriate hiring decision?

Applicant Consent for Testing

In keeping with these job requirements, our company utilizes (besides application forms and interview procedures) pre- employment non-medical testing regimens that assist us to determine whether applicants possess the skills, competency and above all personal attributes necessary to meet our company's performance standards. Applicants for any position undergo such standard screening procedures.
The selected tests are not intended or qualified to be a sole criterion for hiring. The testee may decline to answer any question on these tests on personal privacy grounds and may decline taking the tests altogether. After reading the questions of a test, the testee may also decline to continue taking the test. A person will not be penalized for not answering a question or not taking the tests.
The tests may include but are not limited to those that measure intelligence, aptitude and personality traits required to meet the requirements of the position, including but not limited to meeting the Company's standards for performance, interpersonal relations, and competence on the job.
