Online job applications in plaintext (no HTTPS)

I tried to manually type in https:// in the URL, but it essentially broke the website. This company uses Taleo (which seems to be highly popular), but for some reason the whole job app is in plaintext. And I'm not going to essentially **** all this PII on this form that has all my contact info and job history! I almost want to drive down to the company, fix their system, drive home, then apply to work there.

Have you guys noticed this? Is it a frequent occurrence?

    Yes, sorry to say that none of the applications I have filled out recently have been in HTTPS. Yet another reason why I dislike providing my DL # but it is what it is.
