Must have significant experience as an intern? Man, they must be scrapping the bottom of the barrel to consider interns. Last I heard those were people who were learning.

Not that unusual. Intern experience can range from none to vast. Just depends on the individual and their career path.

And everybody's still learning. If you're not God help you.

$12 to $14 Hell my experience is halfvast (say that real fast!)

Local food packaging plant in Cent. Calif. announced openings for general labor at Min. wage and got almost 600 lined up to do the dirty menial jobs. ('course most came up from south of the border with no docs.)
