    Hasn't this job been posted a few times on this board before? Maybe someone who has worked there can provide some insights about the work environment, rug races and Chris Berman's crankiness.

    This would be a terrific position for anyone looking never to be exposed to sunlight again. I imagine the demands are more than extreme.

    I worked as a temp in this department directly under Nash who posted the job. You will work nights and weekends in a useless department at the worldwide leader. You will be in charge of the real-time ticking clocks on the bottom line that provide so much to the viewers. You will monitor stats feed from colleges that work 95% of the time so there is no need for most of the people in the department. There are some research projects, but only the ones that are declined by the actual espn research department. Maybe I'm just jaded by the awfulness of being a temp in the department, but from what I saw it was not a great place to work and you will hate your life if you take the job.
