Reminds me a joke about a job interview for a live-in domestic servant. A 30 minute-long description of various duties expected from the job applicant finally ends with: "Do you have any questions?" The job applicant says: "Yes, sir. I wanted to ask you if you also have a brick-making workshop on the premises. In my spare time I would like to go and make some bricks for you."
In case people out there still believe that the ACS isn't a joke of a professional organization.
OMFG! CJ, dare I ask what one has to do for the extra 50¢ in yearly salary?
@Anon: Possibly drive the chairman to and from his three plants in Henderson, KY...worth $0.50, I'd say!
i wonder about the author.
Public companies justly get criticized for bowing to investors' short-sighted demands. On the other hand, private companies like Shamrock can be run by nutters and nobody can say a thing.I'm not sure which I'd prefer to work for.
The extra 50 cents is worth a shot, so long as the job candidate doesn't have to sacrifice her/his morals or ethics."C'mon, ya wanna be in pictures, don't ya? Show me what ya got!"
