Dear Portland employers:
A Bachelor's Degree requirement for a job that pays $.05 over minimum wage?
Go fuck yourselves.
When the median income for the job you are advertising is $55,000/year you really have to be smoking crack to think someone is going to work for you for less than half that - let alone a third.
And thanks for waiting until the third interview to answer my questions on salary and benefits. I now know why you were so reluctant to give me specifics and also why you are having such a hard time filling this position.
Thanks for wasting my time.
