This doesn't even give the option of "won't allow remote work". I've literally dismissed jobs for not allowing WFH on my job hunt.

My guess is those got rolled into “Other reasons”, “personal reasons”, or even “long commute”.

I find there's way, way, way too many people who think they can get a "job" that involves them staying home and getting mailed cheques direct deposit, sight unseen. In the past 12 months, I've rejected half a dozen candidates who figured they could Work From Home (tm) all the time.

The silly thing is that most of the work is, in fact, WFH available, but there is a component that requires on-site work (literally, it's not "management wants to see you", it deals with sensitive information handling).

I kind of wish people who want the sit-home-get-cheques job would put that right at the top of the CV so they're easier to weed out and not waste my time or theirs.
