This is a part of the many legitimate job postings I come across.


"Qualifications:

5 years experience in an office setting is REQUIRED! 4 years of college level education

Selection Process:

The starting wage is $9 per hour with a rotating morning/afternoon, 37.5hr per week shift. Upon successful completion of a 90 day probationary period, hourly will increase to $10. If you are selected to be interviewed, you will be required to take three skill tests."

Have you seen alot of postings similar to these?

Yeah. This shit! I spent 4 years and thousands of dollars to get a job that wants to pay almost what I got paid without the degree? @$$holes!!

I've seen LOTS of jobs like this. Most of them actually.

No, however that in my area I live in sounds like what would be offered. Possibly 12. Is there another raise after say 6 months? That might make more sense if it's a temp to hire job if not I wouldn't take it serious.

Yes, and there are plenty of people who will settle for it.
