Airplane Michelin employment test for executives

Comment: On a web forum I frequent, this question was posted:

"Two reliable acquaintances have told me some incredible stories about job
applicant testing that Michelin corporation used to do for potential
executives. For example, in one test the applicant is brought into a
warehouse containing a disassembled airplane and a crew of mechanics and
given a certain amount of time to direct the assembly of the plane. And at
the end of all the tests, the applicant is brought into a room with two
doors and handed an envelope with either Door A or Door B written inside.
Open one door, and the applicant is welcomed into the company, open the
other door and the applicant finds himself literally outside of the building
and is done for. Can anyone confirm or negate this story?"
