Target's love of personality testing actually got the company into some trouble in 1989, when three applicants for security guard positions filed a lawsuit, claiming the mandatory "psychscreen" was a violation of their constitutional right to privacy and other labor laws. The 704 true-false questions included, "I believe in the second coming of Christ..." "My sex life is satisfactory..." and "Many of my dreams are about sex matters..." Target ultimately settled for $1.3 million. Today, applicants don't have to confess their sexual tendencies or religious beliefs to Target Corporation. They just have to apply online, go through a phone screening and an online assessment, and then another interview or two, or five -- if you're going for a management position.
