In school we are learning about the two types of workers: Theory X: This average person dislikes work and will avoid it if possible. Work must be forced. Must be controlled. Wishes to avoid responsibility. Has little ambition. Demands security. Theory Y: People like work. Are enjoyable co-workers. Go toward goals to which they committed. Most not only want but seek responsibility. Self starters Here is the question. Is there a way to smoke out the Theory X workers in the interview process? The theory is real interesting, how can it be used? Please share your thoughts of experience even if these Theory terms are now new to you.
