Interesting Hiring Practice

I stumbled across this article about one of the hiring practices of Zappos.  Basically, they put their new employees through a rigorous 2 week training program.  After the training program, the employee is offered $1,000 to quit.  So basically, the rigorous training program will weed out some real bad candidates and then the $1,000 offer will likely weed out anyone that is not going to be all the dedicated to the job.  Looks like a pretty good practice to ensure you get dedicated employees who want to work there.  Definitely worth some thought anyway.
