Altro culture fit quiz

About this quiz

 

We are proud of the culture we have at Altro. It’s an important part of what makes us successful and also why people enjoy working here. We realised long ago that the ‘fit’ between our values and those of our employees is a critical factor in enabling people to give their best, enjoy their time with us, and feel part of the bigger Altro team. To help you decide whether Altro is right for you, we have developed a short quiz. The quiz asks you questions about what’s important to you at work and how you prefer to go about your job. Once you have answered these questions, you will receive some immediate feedback about how close the match is between your preferences, and what’s valued at Altro.

 

The results of the quiz are private to you and we do not keep a record of your name or use the results in any way as part of a job application process.

 

The questionnaire has 36 questions and takes 5 - 10 minutes to complete, depending on how fast you are.

 

There are no right or wrong answers and no ‘trick questions’ – you just need to decide how much you agree or disagree with a series of statements about yourself. Work quickly through the questions – your initial reaction to the question is likely to be the most accurate. Also try to avoid giving an answer because you think it is the right thing to say or because it is how you would like to be. Remember this is for your use only. No-one else is going to see the results, so be as honest as you can.

 
We hope you enjoy it and find it useful!
