You've arrived at this blog because you either searched for the term Taleo or you actually put two and two together and searched for "Taleo Sucks."
The point of this blog is a place to air out bad corporate job sites. Taleo appears to be market leader of this mediocrity--supplying an outsource job listing/application system that is used by quite a lot of companies.
Undoubtedly it's a great tool for companies who get reams and of well-filtered data after we, the job applicants, fight with the site and its strange consistencies.
Unfortunately, I have understood that telling the potential employer that their job site sucks is a less than effective approach (though, trust me, I have.) And so far, when I've had technical issues with a Taleo site, my attempts to get customer service have been entirely unsuccessful (and they were sincere technical issues and not just me telling them how thoroughly they screw the pooch raw.)
So, fellow job candidate, come to this site and rant with me. It's not just anti-Taleo, feel free to discuss the lameness of any job site.
And if you really want, we can also talk about the good some sites do.
How Taleo, and other job application/listing sites, suck. A place of retreat for the job hunter. Got a tip? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
