Hiring filters

I copied this from some guy on slashdot, who copied it from a comment poster from here:

Methods from Human Resources...

  1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.
  2. Put your new hires in the room and close the door.
  3. Leave them alone and come back after six hours.
  4. Then analyze the situation.

a. If they are counting the bricks, put them in the
Accounting Department.

b. If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.

c. If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks,
put them in Engineering.

d. If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order,
put them in Planning.

e. If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them
in Operations.

f. If they are sleeping, put them in Security.

g. If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in
Information Technology.

h. If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.

i. If they say they have tried different combinations and
they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved,
put them in Sales.

j. If they have already left for the day, put them in

k. If they are staring out of the window, put them in
Strategic Planning.

l. If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick
has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top

m. Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks
in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from,
put them in Congress.
