  1. Just what does that leave for the Office Administrator to do?

    How about the Stupidvisor?

    Whole buncha chiefs and no Indians.

  2. Given that this reduces the responsibilities of another, existing employee, will that current employee’s compensation be reduced in amount equal to the amount of the compensation of the new hire?

  3. The job description clearly eliminates Karen lukasik, chuck Lutzow, Melissa Victor, and the rest of the clowns.

    Who among them is a people person?

    What exactly is that?

    What four year old wrote out that description?

    Good impression

    Good computer skills

    Good with numbers.

    Allow me to translate:

    Do you have all of your teeth?

    Can you at least turn on a computer?

    Can you count to ten? Can you Divide by 1?

    When Bob miller comes in you give him whatever he wants?

    Ask no questions!

    We are prejudiced against older people as if older people need to be talked to differently than say younger people.

    We don’t know how to define older but we assume you will have that skill.

  4. Transfer calls, fill paper in printers.

    Sounds like an incredibly simple job for 15 dollars an hour.

    Good thing Algonquin Township is ran so well and has such a great public rapport that they can afford to pay this employee well over what the private sector would..
