    so-called web designers are a dime a dozen

    How about his ad this "so called mediawell.com" is running here in new orleans?

    Web Designer. These days so-called web designers are a dime a dozen. As the most replacable unimportant person in the company, expect long hours and low pay. Flash, Dreamweaver, PhotoShop knowledge required. Don't worry, you can pick up the skills for this position in about a weekend. Salary DOE ($15k-18k).

    Feel free...email them how you feel!

    hmmmm... interesting - wonder why they dont get an existing employee, train him/her up in a weekend and save them selves the $15k

    the company seems legit and everything but this could well be a publicity stunt of some sort ....its hard to tell

    I can't figure out why they doing this ad...

    their site looks like sh*t and so their portfolio...

    Do they need a designer for real? Maybe it is a sort of a publicity stunt-joke?

    I wanna email them and tell 'em I make DA BEST coffee!!

    and if they go about recruiting a designer by advertising like this, I dont think it will be improving any time soon either

    this thread has been posted in several forums. spamming is frowned upon.

    I might send the author several e mails telling him so.

    I guess they all learned design in a weekend too!

    Cheap bastards!

    I could get some BS none design related job for more than that, without the stress, headaches, and OT if I'm working late!

    I used to make more than that as a rodie, and at least then I got free beer! And other perks!
