lol this is so dumb

for a job posting


Application Question(s):

  • Are you a Florida resident?
  • We support remote working up to 100%. But this position may require local on-site hardware support. Can you accommodate that requirement?



the position says remote. and this is the very very bottom. so...remote but you have to live in florida (and likely close enough to the actual client locations.)

lol

i get what they are asking for and i'm not 100% against it. if my boss said i could be remote but had to be available for a large project (on site) or a major issue (on site) i would 100% take the remote options.

the company doesn't want to hire someone that isn't local just in case something hands on is required, they don't want to have a remote IT person and have to now find a local IT company for 'some' hands on stuff.

i would have a problem if they said that i needed to come in because someone's keyboard/monitor/etc wasn't working especially if it was a weekly occurrence. end users need to know the basics and spare everything should be located on site if it is deemed as critical/important.

we have remote staff that travel for other offices and they are always asking me for chargers and cables.

1- i tell them to submit a ticket/call the help desk
2- i tell them they should bring those items with them, next time

oh i get it too. but to mark it a remote job when you not only need to live in the same state, but the same general area since florida is huge, is misleading and wasting peoples time to read this shit lol.

yeah, i get your perspective, but i still see what they are getting at. maybe they should state remote (hybrid) and explain that way people can assume that remote = no onsite required where as remote (hybrid) they could indicate that some on-site could be needed.

i know a lot of jobs switched to remote, but i don't see the majority of the jobs staying as remote, time will tell. i think hybrid becomes more common and i think that is a good compromise. i see the benefit of some in office interaction especially if your role benefits from that, but i also don't understand why it is a big deal to work from home, randomly, if you don't have a reason to be in the office or need to be home for a certain reason.

lots of what i'm seeing are 2 day a week in office things. which seems fair.

yup, i agree and that would be great for morale...

i know for appearances companies want to have offices in fancy buildings and shit. but one of my clients has 100+ desks in a financial district manhattan office and since covid hit they've had maybe 8 people at most in it at the same time. typically 5 or less. it just seems crazy :o

i know govt loans and shit are still happening but at some point they have to tell people to just get rid of their offices, right? lol

they are paying for leases and if they can't get out of those leases and/or want that space for x reason, they will find a way to force employees back at some point.

any unnecessary days in the office, even 1x a week is dumb - engineers dont need synergy. if people want to go in cus theyre social fine, but forcing hybrid is stupid...

it really depends on your role and what's going on at the company. if i'm working on a large project, i don't want to look at a blueprint online and be the only remote person on the call when there is a room filled with other engineers/trades/etc, it would be easier to go in.

if you are not involved in those types of projects then i agree, it doesn't make sense to go in. but i would take hybrid vs nothing at all.

some of the stuff is stupid fast and makes *some* sense a person in a random country might take just for the 5 star review the person promises to leave you.

but a lot of them aren't worth the time to respond to the posting.

here's a confusing one. the job pays well. i feel like i just time traveled. IT director for an accounting firm. but it wants you to have your CPA license in addition to the tech stuff?

  • Certification/license as CPA, CIA, CISA, CISSP, or CISM.

also..

windows NT & novell? i mean...my novell certifications are long expired but i'm sure i could brush up lol

  • Experience with numerous business cycles and multiple accounting software applications. Areas of expertise should include at least some of the following: access control software, security architecture and administration, Internet use/firewalls, network security awareness and enforcement, security policies and standards, operating systems (Windows NT / 2000, UNIX, AS400, Novell).

run.

finance and IT should never mix. you can't be a good IT admin if you also need to be a CPA. i don't want my CPA configuring my network and an IT admin shouldn't be the person reviewing company taxes/finances.

:rofl:

wtf.
