They had me take an on-line "personality" test which was really designed to see if you were honest and if you would steal. Then I had to take an "aptitude test" which was really an illegal IQ test. The questions had absolutely nothing to do with the skills required of the job.

1 Answer

They may ask you some journal entries at the interview if they doubt you accounting skills.

1 Answer
