    This position is filled already, per Roger Hensley.

    If anyone knows who got it, let us know. :)

    Another example of, "We know who we want to hire, but are obligated to post the job."

    Most likely. Another thing was, and no offense to the original poster, but this job was three weeks old by the time it was posted here.

    I realize that but it was still an active job posting so I posted it. I even went back three pages to the week before the start date and I didn't see it on here.

    Hey there... no, we don't blame you. You saw a posting, you put it up. That's how we know about these things. We're just talking about the process. A lot of times companies take a while to decide on a candidate. I can't speak for the P-D, but this may be a case where, like Ron said, someone was already in mind. :)

    Please, if you see a job again, post it. We may have our in jokes like "Dammit, I can work for the Plain Dealer!" but we're a friendly bunch.
