I wasn't going to contribute to this thread, but Kevin's comment reminded
me of my experience with a company that put me through two days of tests
after the initial HR interview and never even bothered to look at my
portfolio.

The PBJ thing was the last test, at 4:30 on a Friday afternoon, and I was
told to 'write a description of the procedure as though you were an alien
who has never seen a sandwich."

I wrote up a horrified report on torture and genocide for the Sentient
Vegetables Rights Commission of the United Federation of Planets.
