You got that 100% right...and that includes not only the paperwork you do once you have a job there, it can also describe the HR department as well...as I have discovered about a year ago.
I applied for a position in a large district. I had an inactive application already on file, so all I needed to do was update it. I noticed that one of my previous references had not returned the questionnaire that the application automatically spits out when you submit it. Even though I had not spoken to "Fred" (obviously not their name) in a couple of years, we were on good terms, and I thought I would call them and ask them about the reference.
Unfortunately, "Fred" had died shortly before I originally filled out the application, and that was why he didn't return the questionnaire. So, I deleted that entry in my application, and replaced him with another reference. I then re-activated my application.
Two days later, I was involved in an interesting exchange of emails:
HR: One of your references has not returned the questionnaire. Can you see what the hold up is?
ME: [looking at the application, everything has come back OK] I'm sorry, but I'm confused. According to my application everything needed from my references has been returned. Which one is missing?
HR: We are missing one from "Fred".
[remember, I had deleted him because he had passed away]
ME: I had deleted "Fred" from my application because they are deceased.
HR: Well, we need a questionnaire back from "Fred".
ME: "Fred" has died.
HR: We still need his questionnaire.
ME: "Fred" is DEAD. How is he supposed to return a questionnaire to anybody?
HR: My director requires a questionnaire from "Fred" if we are to move forward with your application.
I found out who the HR director was, and contacted them. They gave me the SAME "wash-rinse-repeat" crap that the secretary did. It amazes me that they had no clue that every now and then people die! They must be immortals in that HR department.
