Job evaluations must be objective or else they wouldn't be fair. And, life is not fair, so where does that leave us? Ever thought about that?
Some consultant, some robusterian behavioral wizard, some unfathomable, "deep space" PhD, some "afraid-they're-gonna-sue" compliance officer has stuck the rest of us with this required annual ritual. Much like Halloween, we all dress up as something we're not and parade about playing the adult version of "trick or treat." We all are aware that the game is rigged, but we do our best to play along and objectively evaluate ourselves and others. "Facebook evaluations" make more sense - y'know, "thumbs up/thumbs down"?
Mirror, mirror on the wall... Oh, what fun - right!

well... just incredible!
What a lie! But, here's the most honest - and perhaps the only honest - evaluation I've ever read:
The Honest Job Evaluation

Employee Response: I understand my job completely.
* Quantity of WorkEmployee Response: I feel I get as much work done as anyone else in the department - more in some cases.
* Quality of WorkEmployee Response: I expect things to be right or not at all.
* Planning & OrganizationEmployee Response: I like to plan my work and work my plan.
* Attendance & PunctualityEmployee Response: I'm always on time unless something happens.
* CooperationEmployee Response: I get along with everyone. I rarely start it.
* Analytical AbilityEmployee Response: I have plenty of common sense. I don't try to fix the wrong problem.
* Stability Under PressureEmployee Response: I have been known to have a fit but usually I can handle the pressure.
* Impact of PersonalityEmployee Response: I keep my personality in order. I have earned a reputation I deserve.
* Self ExpressionEmployee Response: I can tell things the way they are.

* InitiativeEmployee Response: I'm not one to be lazy. I know what to do when I see a wrecker with the hood up.
... really like that "wrecker with the hood up" line - don't you!
* "robust" - adj., Eng., frequently used by economists and other robusterians meaning: "written by an idiot".
