Wouldn't they need to cover a certain distance in a limited amount of time? I assume that they have to get to X-number of houses in a day. Could you take a snap shot of that, say give them 60 minutes to get from point A to point B? Maybe even have them collect tokens along the way to demonstrate that they hit various locations (homes) during their walk. If you had access to a college or HS sport field, you could set up a course and monitor it fairly easily.

Eh, just a thought from a Christmas-fried cerebrum...

Subject: [IPAC-List] FW: Meter Reader Walking Test

Does anyone have an example of a test of the ability to walk distances for a job, such as a meter reader. On the job employees can start and stop walking at virtually any time, so requiring applicants to walk a specific distance without stopping is problematic.

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
