Thanks to Pacesetter Corp. and their attempted legal action to shut down this site, we now need to contact the author of each story we have posted and have them swear, under penalty of perjury, that everything they said in their story is true.
Unfortunately, we have been unable to contact this author. However, because this story is in no way presenting any alleged facts about the company, we could not find any justification for removing it. Also, someone seems to have posted this story on the misc.consumers.house newsgroup, so it can be read there as well.
Subject: Job Advertisement
I wanted to share the following advertisement that ran in our local newspaper this past Sunday, November 17, 2002. Sounds a bit desperate to me and why would anyone respond to an ad like this? Seems pressurizing just by way of the advertisement:
"COME ON PEOPLE"
"This is ridiculous. Every time I run ads for different departments in my organization I get limited response. There are no gimmicks, no surprises and no hidden factors. Pacesetters Corporation is the largest in America in its field. We have all the benefits that large corporations could offer. In other words, not only great income but you get all the goodies too! Vacations, trips, awards, insurance and retirement opportunities. Starting income is $40k-$60k per year. Sounds good so far, doesnt it? That's why I can't understand why in the world you wouldn't investigate this opportunity."
Then they offer the standard, experience preferred but not necessary speel, and a name an number to contact.
I for one was offended that this person assumes I am too stupid not to respond to his ad. Anyone else think so too?
