How come employers don't provide good job descriptions when posting jobs online?
For example, the job title might be listed as "Warehouse Worker" and the job description says a couple things like "We are looking for warehouse workers for our Los Angeles, CA facility" and "must be able to lift 50lbs", but there's a wide range of things one can be expected to do in a warehouse. This also goes with a lot of other jobs posted online. Why are employers so abstract when writing these job descriptions. ?

I've always wondered the same thing myself. Then it's disappointing when you find out the job description is not really what you thought it was, because of lack of details.

Well, a lot of reasons I suppose - one reason may be because they need a lot of bodies therefor are not too picky about who they are hiring. Sounds like a sound bet that you'll get the job!

because it's fake. They are trying to obtain your personal information and the more vague they are, the less likely they will look fake. If they listed a name for a business or someone to contact, you could google it and see if its real. By leaving that all out, you might contact them for more information... More

When a company hires general warehouse type employees they may need them to do a variety of basic jobs, so being specific on the job description isn't practical.
