    Before you interview here, make sure you ask the two deskers who got whacked to create these openings under bullshit pretenses what they think about the work environment.

    1440: Yes, what did happen to create the openings? You can't just throw out a hand grenade like that and take off. Well, you can, but it isn't too helpful or satisfying.
