    I will answer questions about the area and the temperment of the ME and SE.

    But I will also warn you, this is Hagadone, meaning there's no dental and the most effed up vacation policy I've ever seen.

    they'll attempt to tell you part of the pay is the environment. i suggest you tell them you can't eat a mountain.

    The pay there isn't as bad as the pay was in Missoula. It's not great, and you won't be able to afford a house (housing prices are insane), but you won't have to eat raman or live in a cardboard box either.

    This position was open several months ago that was listed as an "immediate" opening. I know they went through some interviews, but decided to freeze the spot until now. If I remember right, they used to have four on the staff, but cut one, and instead are turning that into this position with both design and writing. Pay was around $12-$14 an hour, or somewhere in that area.

    We'll just say it was less, TP.

    Also they added this position after I left about three years ago, right about the time the new high school in Kalispell opened.

    although you only have 300 and some change, your contributions to this board have become solid ... so, so solid.

    Didn't Kalispell also gave us Steve Howe?
    On a more positive note, I believe it also gave us Amanda Kimmel, former Miss Montana USA and two-time Survivor finalist.

    Steve lived in Whitefish, although I believe at least one coke arrest was in Kalispell.
