Do Job Postings and Interviews lack clarity?

Have you ever applied to a job posting, interviewed for the position, and then got the job, only to wonder later what you would actually be doing on a day to day basis? Or, have you gone into a new position expecting one thing, and then realized that the job was totally different than your expectations? Why does this seem to happen? Is this a common issue for people? I have been fortunate enough to have not had to deal with this type of situation, however I have heard many horror stories. I could see how this would be frustrating to someone who left one position for another, only for it to turn out differently than they expected and now they have to try to return to the previous position or look elsewhere. Do job postings need to be improved, or does more communication from both parties need to take place during the interview process?
