    There are always these dumbass questions that make no sense and seem to be trick questions. Here it is:

    "When a coworker breaks the rules, I typically":

    A - Get very upset and say something to the person.
    B - Get very upset and say nothing.
    C - Get somewhat upset about it but let it go.
    D - As long as I'm not affected, it doesn't bother me.
    E - I have no previous work experience.

    I mean what the ****. The best answer to this scenario isn't even on it. (I'd think the best answer is, "say something without getting upset".)

    (In that respect, the best answer is "C".)

    The correct answer is to write out "none of the above" and explain that it depends on the rule that was broken. Did the person steal a percocet? That's option A. Did the person eat an extra cannoli at the company picnic when there was a limit of one per person? The answer to that is...who cares.

    This is another example of why HR people are retards. They actually ask idiotic, closed-ended **** like this.

    Reminds me of when I applied to Target back in the day as a P1! In real life I would say something without getting upset but that answer choice isn't available usually on those questionnaires. So that's one question I won't get right.

    See? Who says all those "choose the best answer" multiple choice P&T questions didn't translate to anything in the real world?

    No idea what an HCA facility is, but I think this place was somewhere in Texas.

    I despise electronic applications. C is the best of those terrible answers, to me. Don't think you want to admit to getting "very upset" nor would you want to admit to it "not bothering" you. Still, those choices are awful.

    Man, the other thing I hate are the screening questions that automatically disqualify your application. Like, I'm applying for a pharmacy intern position, and the question asks, are you currently in pharmacy school. If you answer no, it throws out your app. So I had to answer yes, but then say I graduated in 2012 on the next question. Dumbass internet applications.

    My favorite applications are those that are only one page long, don't use any special programs so you can have all the fields pre-filled, and at the end simply require you to upload your resume or copy/paste.

    He is a grad intern, he probably needs to wait for the naplex results.
