To Be Fair, Filing Is Boring

Amazing tidbit from an Ask a Manager compilation of anecdotes about terrible job applicants:

“Because I used to get about 500-600 applicants every time a file clerk was posted, I started putting one prescreening question. [¶] The question was ‘Rate your interest in the following job duties: Filing’. It was the only job duty listed, since it was the only duty of the job. The only options were ‘Interested’ and ‘Not Interested.’ I could usually weed out 2/3 of the applicants because they would put ‘Not Interested.'”
