Due to this economy, it is getting more and more difficult to find a job. Those prospective employees that are fortunate enough to make it to the interview process are screened much more thoroughly than they were a few years ago.
One of the tools an employer uses to screen applicants is a psychological test. I had an interview today for a low paying call center job and had to take one of these ridiculous tests. I was at the company for two and a half hours. Over two hours were spent taking tests and filling out forms, and less than half an hour was spent actually interviewing. You'd think I was trying to get into the FBI or something. What's next, are people wanting a job at McDonalds going to have to take a polygraph?
One of the test questions I was asked was "Have you been possessed by demons?" I am not making this up! I'm going to post some other questions that I was asked. That way when you apply for a job, you'll know what to expect when you take one of these retarded tests. I will also give my opinion on how the employer will interpret your answer.
"Have you ever stolen something?"
Pretty much everyone has stolen something in their life. I would say that answering yes to this question would give you a better chance of employment than answering no. If you answer no, the employer will think you're lying.
"Does it bother you to see animals suffer?"
I would say answering yes to that question would be the safest bet. Unless of course, you're applying for a job at a slaughterhouse.
"Have you been possessed by demons?"
If you answer yes to this question, the employer will think you're a lunatic and not hire you. I don't think that's right. If you tell the employer that you were possessed by demons, this is what you are actually telling them:
"I don't want this crappy job!!!"
