One final test and he would then be hired as one of the company's top executives with a seven figure monthly salary and all the perks. Exactly for what top level office, he was not told by the executive search committee. Our Chairman feels strongly about your name, they told him.
After a few minutes, the charming assistant of the Chairman entered the room and gave him a piece of paper marked 44444.
He almost fell from his chair when he read it because he was clueless as to the officers of the company.
