This is what Mark Zuckerberg and Stephen Schwarzman look for when hiring someone

Would you pass these hiring tests ?

At a town hall style Q&A at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Wednesday afternoon, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he has one rule for hiring people to work for the social network.

'I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person', he said. 'I think this rule has served me pretty well'.

CNN Money reports that Zuckerberg noted that hiring is a problem at Facebook, because there is more work to do than people to accomplish it. That can lead to hiring people who may not be the best candidate for a job.

So the Facebook CEO said that his team looks for people whose values align with the company's.

'Facebook is not a company for everyone in the world', he said.

In the meantime, Stephen Schwarzman, CEO and co-founder of Blackstone Group has his own interesting take on hiring.

CNN  also reports that Schwarzman said this week at a Wall Street Journal leadership event: 'To be hired at our place and work with us you have to be nice. I don't like people who are not nice.

'To make a culture of very smart, fast-moving people you can't have political monkey business going on'.
