When applying for jobs online and you're asked to cut and paste a resume and answer a few questions, should you add a cover letter to the beginning?

Are cover letters really useful for those types of roles going through HR versus a Hiring Manager? I've heard of people sending out hundreds of resumes in this tough market; are they really creating targeted cover letters when applying in bulk? I've read most of the previous questions on the green already. I know the answer might be "depends on the role/industry/etc." but let's assume it's a team leader and/or manager role in a call center or retail bank.
