20 Images Showing The Terror Of The Recruiting Process

It's a scary world out there. With the cost of living getting higher and higher, the demand for better-paying jobs is getting greater. With this comes a lot of desperate yet unreasonable recruiters. It seems the more desperate companies get for employees, the worst they get at hiring and the more insane they become. Since when did we have to give our social security numbers during the application process? Everyone is getting sick and tired of the hiring process.

From insane interview questions to secret wages, getting a job is just a massive pain these days. Reddit users have come together in the subreddit /r/recruitinghell to collect the worst of the job-seeking and hiring process. Here are 20 times employers just went a little overboard with their requirements, questions and compensation. If you relate to any of these, stay safe and good luck out there.
