I've always wondered why companies never bother to proofread this stuff. I mean, the last thing I would want potential applicants to think is that we're more incompetent than we actually are.
That's right up there with advertisements that say, "Save up to 50% and more".

Welcome to 2019. Please make sure your time machine is better calibrated, seems your flux capacitor has the problem.

No, they didn't, but nice try. There are still many degrees that require them.

We have high school graduates with 5 to 10 years experience earning $28 to $33 per hour and they usually work 5 to 8 hours per week OT at time and a half.

That's $1,560/week and common.

We're talking Georgia and not a high cost of living area at that.

The downside is the work is hard, most of the time the work is not in an air conditioned space and you can't wear a fancy tie and look important. In fact we have one worker that DIDN'T graduate high school but he has some outstanding qualities to consider.

1 He is always on time and ready to work.

2 He isn't a dummy.

3 We can always rely on him for OT work. If I needed him on an emergency job tonight I am 90% certain I could rely on him.

4 He is self motivated and if he sees something that needs to be done he does it without being asked.

I would not be surprised to learn he earned $75K last year and I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He was worth what he earned. I never think about his level of education.
