    Big Waste Of Time And Money

    Why do applications have to be so frickin' long? There is no need for 200 personality/attitude questions. What kind of company has time to read all those questions? I bet you when they see all those applications in their email box the next morning they probably delete all of them...

    Sort Of.

    Seeing as I work in an employment agency, I'm the one who has to MAKE people fill out job applications, and I get all the dirty looks I could ever want. ...I'm sorry!
