Polygraph job interview.. is this forreal?

"Must be able to pass a high security clearness background check (polygraph interview, DNA testing)"

I was just going through jobs on craigslist and saw this ad... Why exactly would a polygraph test be required for a janitorial job?

I'm not interested in the position but the description is pretty intriguing

    It might be a job working in a place that has access to sensitive information, like a bank, or a military contractor, etc. Janitors sometimes have access to areas that other employees don't have. After all, it is a position of trust.

    Polygraph tests are only legal when a government security clearance is required. My guess is that they are a government contractor.

    They are just setting you up for providing your social security number, bank details, etc for "clearance". It's a scam - ignore it.

    possible janitorial job involves children or vulnerable adults or high security facility.

    presumably they lie detect you so that when you tell them you are not a spy they can tell you are telling the truth

    the ad doesn't say where the work is or who the employer is, does it? suppose they need janitors at Groom Lake?
