This article reports that James W. Bassett has been helping employers screen their job applicants for more than thirty years — first as a polygraph examiner and later as publisher of the VAQ™ Pre-employment Honesty Test. His company also offers investigative questionnaires to identify employees already on the payroll who have stolen from their employers. Few businesses have as difficult a time finding and retaining solid employees as the convenience store industry. Personnel problems are far easier to prevent than they are to solve.
