    OK, so, did the position get filled, and if so, what happened to the new person?

    It doesn't really need to be repeated, but Kevin is one of the best to work for. He gives plenty of time out and you don't have to stay in the office for long. If you need any details, just let me know.

    I notice that The Eck is not listed as the contact person this time around. Wonder if his past follies here have anything to do with it ...

    You apparently didn't get the reference to the first thread.

    Competitive salary = $20,000 — hmm, can I get a competitive job at Mickey D's as an assistant manager, too?

    Sadly, that is competitive these days for an 11k. Plus, many places outside of Atlanta in Georgia aren't too hard on the pocketbook. When I was considering jobs after college, I asked my parents about non-metro Georgia (we lived in LaGrange and Peachtree City when I was young). They said living was pretty cheap. My aunt and uncle just moved from north Georgia five years ago, and they said the same.

    Not sure who Wicked is or why he's so interested in me, but perhaps you could expand on "past follies." Anyone with any questions about the job, please let me know.

    Do you need to be reminded of how bad you looked on the last thread? (Admittedly, some of the piling-on was unwarranted.)

    You looked bad. And your baiting me here looks worse. I never would work for someone who thinks his snark about former employees translates well to this board.
