Craigslist, ideal place to find cheap retouchers?

I saw the following posting on Monster 3 weeks ago. Now I know why they still haven't found anybody and turned their attention to Craiglist.

same posting on Monster 3 weeks ago

Re: Craigslist, ideal place to find cheap retouche

for a senior retoucher in LA?..it seems to be the norm these days..to someone starting out in the trade that is a good salary, especially if they're working for a photo studio...

A "prolific understanding of color theory". Yup, I sit around a lot with my fellow retouchers discussing the ins and outs of magenta.

You guys talk to your co-workers outside of work about work, too?

I don't talk. Well, maybe about the Beatles with the dude across the aisle - damn, he knows a lot about them.

Seriously, I love it when I see stuff like that in ads for $18 an hour jobs. Like you're going to be modifying profiles in a place like that, instead of being handed a stack of bags and then get whipped in the butt until they're finished. Whoever wrote that is trying to impress their manager, not you.

Re: Craigslist, ideal place to find cheap retouche

haha...I do hang out with my co-workers every now and then, and inevitably start to talk about work after a few drinks.

Anyway, I was really tempted to apply when I first saw it on Monster. But, I didn't want to waste time and go through the whole testing and interviewing process and get slapped in the face with a low-ball offer, 'cause it happened to me more than once. I already have my eyes out on a couple of houses that I want to work here, but they're not hiring at the moment.
