Put around 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2-3 candidates into the room and close it from outside. Leave them alone, come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation:
If they are counting and recounting the bricks - Put them in Accounts Dept.
If they are wrongly counting the bricks - Put them in Stores Dept.
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks - Put them in Engineering.
If they are arranging the bricks in some other order - Put them in Planning.
If they are throwing the bricks at each other - Put them in Operations.
If they are sleeping - Put them in Security.
If they have broken the bricks into pieces - Put them in Information Technology.
If they are sitting idle - Put them in Human Resource Dept.
If they have thrown the bricks out of the window - Put them in Materials Dept.
If they are clinging on to the bricks - Put them in Treasury.
If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has moved - Put them in Sales.
If they have already left for the day - Put them in Marketing.
If they are staring out of the window - Put them in Shipping.
If they are searching for defects - Put them in Quality Control.
If they are talking to each other and not a brick has been moved - Put them in Top Management...
