It really does. I know pretty much everyone already knows it, but I still want to say it. It’s really terrible. Between the wide variety of terrible job search sites and postings for “entry level” jobs, that then require a college degree and 3-5 years of experience in a relevant field, and terrible job application sites that are confusing or don’t work properly, the whole process is an absolute pain.
For the record, Home Depot’s process is pretty painless. They’ve seem to proven to really embrace technology and the things that they could use it to do.
