    I swear, if I had $10 for every time this place posted an opening I'd be rich. lol. Anyway, Effingham's a nice little city tucked between St. Louis and Indy and it's at the junction of I-57 and I-70. Anyone else chime in.

    Had an interview there back last August. 'Twas a 6-hour drive for me, and although I didn't get the job, it was a great interview, professional, great town. I'd apply for it if I wasn't tied down where I'm at now.
