I am guessing that they will receive a LOT of resumes (maybe a few thousand) for such a position. In order to weed through them, they have this 'standard' questionaire which goes through some soft of software screening, and from that they get to the dozen or so folks that they wish to bring in for a chat.

Just a thought. Yes, it generally seems to be annoying, amateurish and frustrating to the candidates.

It looks like they are trying to make an 'apples-to-apples' comparison of applicants who are willing to go through the hassle of filling-out their questionnaire.

Unless they are going to hire several employees ... or only have a few applicants, they seem very inconsiderate in their willingness to 'jerk around' a lot of people, in order to only hire one.

Still no word from them I am going to chalk it up as one of those obnoxious jerk arounds courtesy of the employer that seems to follow this silly trend. I do not understand why they would end the questionnaire asking if I had any questions or concerns if they didn't care to answer them.
