Job Application Questions

It’s not your parents’ job market any more. I’m amazed at some of the questions on job applications now. However, if they are being asked, they must be issues. Here are some of the recent ones I’ve seen:

  1. In the past 6 months, have you ever gotten into a fist fight with your coworkers at work?
  2. Sometimes, it’s ok for an employee to take a little money from the register. Agree or disagree?
  3. If you see a coworker is upset with a piece of equipment and he kicks it so that glass shatters, what do you do?
  4. Are lies ok to tell at work?
  5. I always let my bad moods influence my work. Agree or disagree?
  6. I believe it’s ok to use illegal drugs on the job as long as they don’t impact my performance. Agree or disagree?
  7. You hear two coworkers gossiping about an affair with a supervisor. What do you do?
  8. If you and your coworker are having an argument, what do you do? Talk to a supervisor, ignore the coworker, confront your coworker, or talk to other coworkers about the problem.
  9. It’s ok to take small items from your office if you feel underpaid. Agree or disagree?
  10. Suppose a new policy is started and you don’t like it? Do your job, do your job but tell your supervisor you don’t like it, or ignore the new policy?

Have you seen similar questions? If so, share them.


Wow. It's Quiet Here...
