Who is making you fill out paperwork before you’ve discussed your comp package?!

I want to type in 0 but always fear being pulled out the running because of it. Annoying they add it to the forms. 🙈

@sp1, a lot of online forms won’t allow you to submit without entering a number.

Then put 0 ☺️

Has anyone ever gotten a response from online applications forms? So far I have not.
