We offer a competitive salary, excellent benefits including a generous 401(k) with profit sharing and matching funds, vacation, etc. Please send us your vision of what an ideal sports section should be, references, salary requirements, and your resume.

    What does "competitive salary" mean?

    Nothing against you NI, but when I see a vague post like that, it screams "lowball." This could be $20K or it could be $45K. It's hard to tell.

    $30,000 to $40,000, depending on experience.

    That's a big range. No experience gets you 30, while five years gets you 40?

    I think that's a fair range. It's just stupid for all involved to get a bunch of applications from guys expecting to make $35K, then someone springs it on them that it's a $25K job. Or someone making $50K now, and this is the range. Now no one has to waste each other's time.

    I'm not picking on you, NI. It's a pet peeve of mine in job ads. And not just in this business.
