    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!

    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...

    To Employers Who Don't Call Back...

    There is a special place in Hell for you. I understand never hearing back after an initial application - you can't possibly get back to hundreds of applicants. However, when you call me, interview me not once but twice, and then look me in the face and tell me I'll be hearing...

    It drains me. I wish

    that jobs would just accept resumes, and not have to fill out a million pages of the same questions over and over again. Then a questionnaire to see if you would the right thing, and if you are mental constant and stable. It's draining. Then to find out they hired who they...
