    "COMPETITIVE SALARY"

    We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

    "JOIN OUR FAST-PACED TEAM"

    We have no time to train you.

    "CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE"

    We don't pay enough to expect that you'll dress up; well, a
    couple of the real daring guys wear earrings.

    "MUST BE DEADLINE ORIENTED"

    You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day.

    "SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED"

    Some time each night and some time each weekend.

    "DUTIES WILL VARY"

    Anyone in the office can boss you around.

    "MUST HAVE AN EYE FOR DETAIL"

    We have no quality control.

    "CAREER-MINDED"

    Female Applicants must be childless (and remain that way).

    "APPLY IN PERSON"

    If you're old, fat or ugly you'll be told the position has been
    filled.

    "NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE"

    We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal
    formality.

    "SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE"

    You'll need it to replace three people who just left.

    "PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST"

    You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.

    "REQUIRES TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS"

    You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or
    respect.

    "GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS"

    Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want
    and do it.

    It means OM or AUM, which ever you prefer.






    O. I know whoat your asking. Basically, its the sound of the universe. I usually use it as a mentra when I'm meditating. Either that or "Sa Sekhem Sahu".

    Now you probably won't be satisfied with that answer, but it'll take too much time for me to explain it all, espcially since I'm at work. And the actually want me to earn my paycheck? Bastards!

    OK... Maybe when you have more time (you have to work at work? You need to get a job here. I've ben waiting for about a month for something I can test my program on - everytime, my boss just says "I'll get on that") you can explain it more fully...

    You know, the whole reason I accepted the position with the Air Force was because I have always heard how lazy Civil Service employees are. And I LOVE being lazy! So I figured it was a good move, getting paid to do something I enjoy (mainly - nothing).

    But now that they give me a promotion and put me in a developmental series, they expect me to work! Think I'll march into my supervisors office and tell her I want back where I was.

    On second thought, I've gotten accustomed to the money, so I think I'll just work a little. But not right now...
