  1. My initial (smart-ass, of course) response was, “what, they finally ran out of relatives to hire?”

    Excellent customer service skills! Ability to schedule inspections! Ha! That’s right up there with the recycling guy “assisting.” That might involve getting out of the truck…

    But I think it’s law that they have to post openings, even if they already have the candidates lined up, or plan on rehiring the same people that were already doing the job. It would be nice, actually, if the recycling/maintenance jobs went to the garbage guys that got their jobs outsourced to the eejits that are doing it now. Apparently they didn’t SEE my garbage sitting on the curb last Monday so it’s been sitting around getting nice and ripe for a week.


    • In fairness….I think they had eejits picking up the garbage before the job was outsourced!

      I had a guy once refuse to pick up my recycling because the can was “mixed” – an entire trash can of plastic and bottles with something like a one fast food wrapper on top that some drunk tossed in on his way home!


  2. Yeah – NOW they’re hiring! Of course, even if I was looking now….there’s no guarantee they’d hire ME!

    I’m still waiting for them to call me back when I signed up to VOLUNTEER after Irene!


  3. OK I think everyone is being hard on the town when it comes to hiring. They hire lots and lots of people. Remember there are lots of people in town with the name Hartsgrove, Oneil, Parker, etc. So See? Its totaly fair!
