I would also say what's really bothering in job searching is many companies advertising job positions with wonderful benefits but just not mentioning the salary. The pay rate is the most crucial information that the applicants want to know before considering. I believe most business firms are attempting to lure more job applicants with all these great benefits. However after the interview or starting the job the new hires just find out that they were paid less than desired!

The uncertainty! A lot of rejections and not hearing back can get to you...

All the above plus what Peter said! In addition, many companies don't even tell you who your applying to work for! What's the big secret? Is someone trying to trick me into applying for a job with a company I would never work for intentionally? Salaries are a major stressor. So many companies expect you to literally do everything (leaves me wondering what anyone else does) for the least amount of pay! Seriously, who can live on $12/hr? Sorry, not with my experience.

A,B,C. The actual interview doesn't bother me. I'm professional and confident as well as polite during an interview.

Definitely feeling lower about myself during the job search. I know I have great qualifications, but the lack of wins and the overwhelming nature of online job searching is hurting my confidence.

Try this one having a job no money for gas so you can't go.

I put out that I was looking for at home employment, then got bombarded with over 100 phone calls a day and additional information about working at home, thru email, most of which require my funding, and I can't because I have NO extra funds.
