You need to give sex tests to join Oz army
Melbourne, May 27 (ANI): Applicants for jobs with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) are being asked if they are gay or if they're good at sex as part of psychological testing.
Other questions include if candidates are cheating on their partners, if they are addicted to pornography or if they've ever made a sex tape.
A candidate told this week of being offended by an "extremely personal" line of questioning during the test.
Another employee at the ADF confirmed being asked sexually orientated questions during recruitment.
The potential recruits were told the questions were necessary to ensure they had no secrets that could be used if someone tried to blackmail them in the future for sensitive information.
Defence Minister Stephen Smith said yesterday the sexually explicit questions served "no useful purpose" and were "not within the testing parameters".
A Defence Force spokesman said the psychological tests were outsourced to a "workforce solutions" company called ManpowerGroup.
"Release of test items and interview questions asked of applicants undergoing the ADF selection process into the public domain would potentially undermine the process," News.com.au quoted the spokesman as saying.
"Making such knowledge public would allow candidates to develop and rehearse their responses to better manage the impression they give in the assessments," he added. (ANI)
