    Moddy or anyone out there. The steps are pretty simple. I have a problem with steps 2 and 3. If I'm not invovled with this company at the moment, why should my current manager be involved in this hiring process?
    Also, what does it mean when it says once approved, my current supervisor will inform the hiring manager? To me, it sounds like I have to have the approval of my current employer to seek employment at another company.
    Thanks for any insight.

    Possible this was an internal posting?

    Yes, with a memo at the bottom to pass along to those outside the company.

    This thread has been quiet for a couple of weeks.

    Anybody have an idea if this has been filled or what it might pay?

    Job has not been filled. It's a great company to work for, doing remarkably well in these tough times. be prepared, however: You have to be at work around 5:30 or so. Long hours. But a great environment and team to work with, plus all the resources you'd ever need.

    And yes, I work here.

    So, SportsBiz guy, are they going to keep making others pick up the slack and do this job, or what? Sounds like they don't like the candidates or the economy sucks or getting approval sucks or what?

    a.m. or p.m.?

    BMF,

    I am relatively certain that their process is moving along at the pace they want.
