Online Job Boards Don't Give Enough Information

Dear Experts, I continue with my job search online. But I've found many job announcements do not give details on the position -- they just give a brief description and say to apply online. Some do not even give the company name. How can I know whether or not I should apply with so little information?

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
