We show that for every integer $k \geq 2$, the Res($k$) propositional proof system does not have the weak feasible disjunction property. Next, we generalize a recent result of Atserias and Müller [FOCS, 2019] to Res($k$). We show that if NP is not included in P (resp. QP, SUBEXP) then for every integer $k \geq 1$, Res($k$) is not automatable in polynomial (resp. quasi-polynomial, subexponential) time.
