+ - How far should screening go?

Submitted by SlashSquatch
SlashSquatch (928150) writes "My sister is getting screened for a programming position with a financial firm. I was alarmed to hear she'll be getting fingerprinted at the sheriff's office as part of the screening process. Instantly I conjure up scenes of frame-ups and corporate scandals. I want to know, should this raise a flag? Would you submit to fingerprinting, blood tests and who knows what else (genetic code screening etc), for a programming position?"

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.

Working...
