a word about online applications

Today I applied for an archiving and exhibits position at a major entertainment company. High profile, so they MUST have to filter hundreds of applications for each position. I understand. And, in all fairness to them and their search, they’ve used a third party company to create an online application process. Wonderful.

Each section was cleanly laid out and simple to understand. Each section took me minutes to fill out, which is great for me, and even great for them, due to their forethought to streamline.

Once filled out, however, each page took 5 minutes to load a new one. 5 minutes!

I appreciate their weeding process, thinking that those who ‘aren’t really dedicated to getting the job won’t take the time to finish the application,’ but when it takes nearly an hour to fill something out that should only take 20 minutes….

They better agree to my salary request.
