    Resist the standard appeal

    Hello!
    The following is about an ariticle " how to hire employee" and I am not sure some of the sentences which I marked red. Will you please paraphrase it?

    Resist the standard appeal for resumes and references. He(CEO)asks production workers to come down and fill out an application. " it is interesting to see if they can find their way down here.

    What does it mean by resist the standard....?

    What does it mean by come down?

    Re: Resist the standard appeal

    It means that he does things in a different way from the norm- he asks them to come in person instead of putting out a standard request for resumes.
