    Why is it that the Kronos Job Application site only allows you to fill only one application with a Company? I wanna apply to more than one position for BiLo (quite a few available) and more than one store for Racetrac but it only lets me do it for one store just rejects it saying i've already put one in. Gotta love technology! :) Carry on y'all!

    I have not applied with these sites but still 2 suggestions:

    (a) Create a different email and try to apply.
    (b) Clear browser cookies. The session is tracked using http cookies normally. Or the site can write a cookie to track that you have already applied or not.

    I seriously doubt the different email address works cause they ask for your SS number, and i can't change that, i'll try the cookies

    Cleared cookies, did nothing, just pisses me off and perplexes me why any company would use this site that claims you have put in an application for this location or position when you haven't nad pisses me off and i can't afford to have a website cockblock me from getting a job that could be mine

    My thought would be to send an application directly to the company and bypass this faulty middleman.

    What Everett suggested is what I was going to suggest. I understand that some companies either only advertise or mostly advertise using resume advertizing sites; or advertise both on a site like Monster (or what have you) and their own home page (usually under Jobs or Job Opportunities (I know writing this was unnecessary). SO, you may also want to check their site to see if you can directly apply.

    Also, if clearing cookies would work, he would be able to use the same login information and just do it from another computer.

    I hate applying for jobs online. I also hate when they ask you stupid ass shit where it makes us look like we are not human and no way to explain anything. Typical example I see:

    Do you ever get aggravated at work?
    []yes
    []no

    Of course I do fuckheads, who doesnt!? My job could be sorting socks and Id get aggravated that I only have one sock left of one type with no paired partner.

    Kinda off topic, but some swinger friends of ours were talking job interviews the other day and we got to laughing about the part where some employers will ask,"What do you do for fun, in your spare time?" We all looked at each other and all said,"well, we fuck alot of other peoples wives and husbands"
    LMAO
    OKAYYYYYYY
    Next question
