Your employment and address info are already in the database via your taxes.
They're not asking you for the info. They're checking to make sure it matches up with the info they already have.
Global Entry really can make a huge difference, IF the people in front of you know what they're doing. When we came back from Japan in March, the Global Entry line was stalled because people couldn't read the instructions posted on the machine. Once we "helped" them through, it took 30 seconds to get through customs.
If we trained our customs officers like some other countries, we wouldn't need Global Entry. German officers, for example, are trained to assess behavior and can tell rather quickly if you're being evasive or deceptive. The line there moves quickly.
They're also the only customs officers in the world who have offered to detain my wife for me. I should have taken them up on that one.
