When applying for U.S. jobs (as Canadian), do you check the box that says "Sponsorship required" (TN visa)?

I'm finding many companies telling me no due to needing Visa sponsorship, which in reality isnt really the case since we just need a job offer letter and apply.

What do you fishes think?

So sponsorship in US terms May have different meaning and you are right it’s automatic rejection in many cases. I would just say No on the online application but would mention it during the screening call.
I also saw in one of the applications that they had said (Do not click yes for TN visa). Can’t remember where..

like

Yes I only saw this once but most don't even have detail I found haha

Many applications clearly give an example of the type of visas they consider as sponsorship and they include TN-1 as well.

"Will you now or in the future require sponsorship for employment visa status (e.g., H-1B, TN, E-3, O-1, etc.)? "

TN is considered a sponsored visa too since your ability to work with the US employer as a non-citizen/resident is contingent on an offer being made. That said, it does not require a petition unlike the H1b. That is the difference.

TN Visas aren't sponsored by employers, so answering 'No' to the sponsorship question is technically right.

I always check no and explain during the interview, and if it really is such a big deal, you usually are screened out at the initial call.

Note that it's not necessarily the visa question - your address is a dead giveaway too (if you're currently in Canada).

Half the time the system auto rejects if you check off visa sponsorship depending on company. I always check off no and make sure I’m up front about it with recruiting screening call if I get one. Have had 10+ US interviews from Canada. Sending DMs to the hiring team was actually most effective.
