I thought that at first, but at this rate, they would have 75% of the work in Manhattan.

Season's turn, crops are harvested, storms come and go, but one can always be assured of a never ending ad in Craigs:

The interview was bizarre. There were 2 of them... one didn't talk at all or make any eye contact and sat with his arms crossed across his chest. I knew before even sitting down at the table that there was some sort of judgement passed based on first impressions and that I wasn't what they were looking for. I continued graciously, though, and showed my portfolio. They showed little interest and the whole things lasted 5-10 uncomfortable icy minutes and I was out of there.

Good....uh.... bad cop/bad cop :-)

I like that Benny, if I get your meaning. Technically I think you'll find insecticides, herbicides are used, and then the grains are pummeled until all their vitamins are drained, in 400 degree grinders. The joys of mass production. KR1156 - are you talking from experience on this one at all?

Re: NYC Retouchers - Anybody work here?

I've interviewed there before too (and also felt it was one of the weirdest interviews I've ever had, very awkward) and know two people that work/worked there. One of them was already hating it after a couple months. It's a factory, they are already underpaying you and you're there from 9AM until midnight or later often apparently.
