Roomie’s recent success in the job market has prompted me to take a closer look at the e-mails I’ve been getting every day from monster.com for the past several years. I’m used to needing (but not having ) PLC troubleshooting experience, but this morning I got turned down because I had no experience with conveyor belts.
Conveyor belts, for fuck’s sake!
I can (or at least could) program, calibrate, troubleshoot and repair Yaskawa and Brooks robots, maintain and repair systems that combine compressed gasses with RF energy in a high vacuum environment, and a shitload of much more complex equipment than conveyor belts.
This is worse than being turned down by guys who service electric lift trucks.
