I always enjoyed the " Why do you want to work for us " question. .... Uh, cause I need money duh! - No, I want to work for you because working is super duper fun and I get to put up with your bull crap policies for minimum wage and not to mention irate customers who complain about their first world problems!
But I do agree. I think if your going to offer a position between minimum wage and $12 an hour, there should be just 1 uniformed job application that shouldn't take no more than 5 minutes to fill out. Forget all that questioner bull crap and to be honest, I don't even care about your job history. I only care if you can do the job you are applying for. If not, you won't be working for me much longer.
