For NS, there is the entrance exam I mentioned followed by a thorough
grilling in the interview.

The interview process is not "casual". Last time we hired a sysadmin at my
POW it took over a year to find a suitable candidate, only 2 were found.
Running through HR post-interview for various checks added in so much time
that the first candidate snapped up a job elsewhere. Criminal record
checks are also required.
