John, et. al...
I use testing as a rule-out, not as a qualitative means of determining
who gets the job. I am sure that, given your resume and prior
responsibilities, you'd do plenty well - and because I test everyone,
I would test you, too.
I'll bet we could make it worth your while enough to stoop down to
writing about a pencil sharpener... after all, they got me to pee in a
cup to get this job, and I vowed I *never* would ;-)
