I:CreativeRecruit - 2: Capability and Potential Empathy

Company 'Y' is an engineering and design firm. The CEO felt there was a divide between his design and technical team and his administrative staff. Following a retirement of a senior manager in admin the CEO decided to fill the place with a personality that was able to readily connect with the designers and tech staff and yet had strong admin skills.

In an early round the candidates were asked to complete a simple task. They had to put together a kit chair that was still in pieces in it's pack.

On the surface, it may look like the candidates who put their chairs together the fastest would naturally move to the next round. In this case (and without giving all the game away) that wasn't necessarily the case at all. ;)
