Am I the only one who finds these things annoying?  You fill out the primary form, add all your basic information then upload a resume and then it makes you fill in all the information that is available in your uploaded resume into a separate form.  Heaven forbid you are applying for more than one position with the same company because it makes you fill in all that info all over again. What happened to the old "update you file" options?  I really miss dropping off a resume in person or just emailing it with a cover letter.  These new online applications are not at all convenient or well organized IMO.

Yes! I hated it! It took me on average 20 min to do an on-line resume! I could drive somewhere, drop off my paper resume and talk to somebody in person faster than that!
