6 Outrageous Hiring Practices

Hamsa Ramesha | Excelle


From the downright crazy, to the just plain fun, hiring practices sure are getting interesting. Some companies turned to virtual reality to recruit new employees, while others weeded out weaklings by raising the stakes – literally.

But do some of these new hiring methods cross the line? Are HR departments taking advantage of a sour economy and desperate job seekers? It’s important to recognize unqualified applicants quickly. But sometimes, in an effort to streamline the process, they take the humanity out of human resources.

How much is too much?

Take a look at these real examples of outrageous hiring practices (both good and bad).

    In my opinion that's just crazy. Employers have so mny hoops to go through today that they are missing out on some really great employees, all because they don't fit into these 'new dimensions'.
