Currently I am looking for a job particularly in retail. I went today to hand out my resume. A few of the managers accepted it and were more than happy to meet me, but most of them, about 70%, said they can't accept it and I have to apply online... This pisses me off so much. Online applications are EXTREMELY impersonal and I think it's a load of senseless garbage. All they can see from online is a digital piece of paper for all they know, I could be a gang banger or I could be the best candidate in the world. It's extremely frustrating because it seems if you didn't participate in every club imaginable in high school or weren't a valedictorian or don't have a degree from Harvard you don't get a call back. I am a very nice person and I enjoy working with others but it's a shame that I don't get the chance due to online applications.

Personally, I enjoy online apps, mostly because being at my desk is most comfortable for me than any other situation but that is just me.

I like online applications but I understand your frustration. Bringing in a resume/application just makes it more known to the manager they you are truly interested in the job.

Yes you get to miss out on those impressions its also bad for people who dont have significant accomplishments because the will be filtered out by the system, I wont say thats unfair you have to do something to get that box checked that makes them interested. I understand your topic and it can be frustrated thats why places by where I live do open interviews sometimes to give everyone a shot however holding everyones resume online and not thousands of papers and, in the eyes of the company, pointless time the managers could be working.

It just enables them to view the applications better and negates the terrible handwriting.

A big benefit of online job applications for employers is that many resumes are filtered out using automated software. They can work in your favor if you know how you write a top tier resume

Apply online and after a few days call in and bug the manager, always worked for me!
