Well, looks like Foxconn is choosing very carefully who are the right employees to work for them. Foxconn is having an extensive recruitment right now. Foxconn has build a new factory plant in Zhengzhou, the capital of central China’s Henan province. The new plant is to employ 300,000 people in the long run, about 100,000 people are to be recruited at the moment. Foxconn is requiring applicants to undertake psychological evaluations and stress tests. The test comprises 70 questions, including evaluations of the effects of sleep deprivation, depression and loneliness.
Henan, with a population of more than 100 million, is China’s most populous province. The province has 22 million people working elsewhere as migrant workers. Foxconn plans to recruit 200,000 employees for its Zhengzhou branch by the end of next year. As Foxconn has begun moving its factory production to inland China, the new factory in Henan province has started production on Aug. 2nd, and the factory will produce iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4, with a capacity of 200,000 units per day. New workers can expect a wages of no less than 2,000 yuan per month (about US$294), the pay is about the same as Shenzhen Foxconn. Newly recruited workers are to intern in Foxconn’s Shenzhen plants before working in the new plant.
For the new recruitment, job seekers have to take some psychological test, answering 70 questions which provide by the authorities. The test will tell the newly recruited workers whether they will have a healthy psychological condition while they are working in Foxconn. Here are some of the interesting questions they have asked, answer yes or no.
We hope this type of psychological test will be useful enough, and there will be no more suicide attempts in the new factory, all we can see the safety net doesn’t help. So hopefully our iPhones can be produced happily in Zhengzhou factory.
