Tests?!? I swear I was done with school

For the college recruiter position, I have to fill out an assessment test online. There are six parts to this test. The first part made up of 186 questions. Yes, the first PART of six parts. Then you have part two of about 70. THEN... You get this beauty.

4/5 + 3/4 =
598% / 26%=
30 + (.0825 x 30) + (15% x 30) =
-11(3/2)(.12(-12)) =
(1/3)(9)³ =
4(-2)² + 8(-2) + 3(-2) + 6 =
100% of 20 =
8 (6-5) + 10 =
(-17) - (-22) =
16% of 225 =
4/5 x 1 1/6 =
12% of 120 +13% of 560=
5/5 ÷ 1/2 =
.17 x 1.2 =
3.5% of 50 =
-3.06 - 1.25 + 2.07(.0325) – 52.76=
5.6 ÷ 2.0 =
.01 x .3 =
.2 + .3 =
.9(54) – 7/13(-24) + (.0739)4/7 - -18=

Hello...I don't want to be a mad scientist, I just want to type and use a computer, which, may I add...has a calculator which is expressly forbidden during this test. Okay, so I take an hour and a half and get through it and move on to part four. Then you get to five and its 20 questions of "If Bob had twice as much as Mary and Jane had 8 more than Bob and Bob had 3 less than Mary, who had the most" and then 20 "Which number comes next in the sequence "4,8,11,1,6,3,6,9,-1,4,2,2,5,-10,-5..." And for those of you who think I made that up, the sequence is that you take the first number and multiply it by 2, then add 3, then subtract 10, then add 5, then divide it by two and start the whole thing over.

I'm not making this stuff up people, its beyond insane. I don't know that ANY job is worth that, let alone as a college recruiter working for probably $8 an hour. Who knows, we will see after my interview at the temp agency on Thursday morning.

I'm really glad you're hundreds of miles away so that you can't punch me for saying that math test looks fun. :P

but you're right. not for 8 bucks.
