It may have partially been that level, but it also could be related to the schedule for interview itself. When I interviewed for my position (not out of state) I had a lunch, dinner, breakfast and another lunch because they wanted me to meet with pretty much everyone. I think they just really like eating out.

Very much so unless the company has a policy that prohibits tattoos in visible areas (neck, hands, etc.), then they would be fully in their rights. Still a bullshit policy though. » 3/28/15 2:55pm Saturday 2:55pm

Oh my god, I don't work in support but I was sort of the IT guy in a lab in grad school. Some of these stories are exact repeats of my experiences there, I am almost paranoid that it is all the same person. » 3/28/15 2:47pm Saturday 2:47pm

Very good, but I actually found that skipping the aromatics in the cavity and the butter step make for a (yes, I know it sounds backwards) flavorful chicken with crispy skin.

Unfortunately this is not unusual. When I was trying to get high speed service in the early '00's It was a similar situation, everyone would say "We can totes do that" but then when it came time for an install the tech would come out and say it was impossible.

I kind of wonder if that 25k prize is the salary of one of their warehouse pickers. Though if the winner would still retain their rights it would not mean much to AMZ. » 3/26/15 1:59am 3/26/15 1:59am

Did that ever actually exist? I have a feeling we are going to see it on an anti-viral piece where they note it only existed on a stage. Not so much out of lost income from seats (which would also be true) but from a safety standpoint. » 3/25/15 1:08am 3/25/15 1:08am

Though the problems can be that the infrastructure is not all there, if it is a true ghost town you may even end up with no water/power/internet since it becomes too costly to provide to too few citizens. » 3/24/15 11:07pm 3/24/15 11:07pm

This brings up an interesting topic, so Rotterdam (well, Holland) presumably ended some jobs by the updates. At the same time those people also have benefits, health care, etc. If we did something like that in the US, would you (as a tax payer) be willing to also accept higher taxes if it meant things like universal… » 3/22/15 3:32pm 3/22/15 3:32pm
