1. How would you conduct a job analysis for a job that does not yet exist?
2. Do you think the abilities chosen for selection are content-valid? What other kinds of predictors might be generally useful for employee selection?
3. What reasons did the selection committee have for selecting only the factors that could not be acquired in a two-year training program?
4. Should the concern about women getting down into the dirty treatment tanks have been a selection issue? How might you include this factor in a selection battery?
5. For the abilities termed ?critical,? what score should someone receive in order to be considered scoring ?well? on that test (that is, what should be the cutoff scores)? How should the test scores be combined (for example, compensatory, multiple hurdle, or combination)?

Ovania Chemical Corporation is a specialty chemical producer of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) thermoplastic resins primarily used to make containers for soft drinks and bottled water, as well as packaging for food and pharmaceutical products.
Though smaller than other chemical producers that produce globally, Ovania has competed successfully in its niche of the U.S. specialty chemical business. Its main plant is located in Steubenville, Ohio, positioned along the Ohio River midway between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Wheeling, West Virginia. In recent years, advances in technology have altered the nature of chemical production, and like other firms in the industry, Ovania Chemical is taking steps to modernize its facilities. Not surprisingly, these technological changes have been accompanied by redesign in employee jobs. In fact, over the last three years, there have been drastic changes in both the number and the kinds of jobs being performed by employees. The latest change at the Steubenville plant involves the job transformations of the system analyzer position.
