This has to be a joke! $1200 to $1500 a month?? That equals $7.50 to $9.37 an hour at 40 hours a week, and you better be prepared to give up your nights and weekends as needed! Anybody who wants to work for this cheapskate deserves what he/she gets! This assclown wants to pay you $14,400 to $18,000 a year folks. And this chump wants you to do free spec work to be the "lucky" winner of this indentured servitude position. Whoopee! Hey dirtbag, I can make that at WalMart without being enslaved to you for 40 plus hours a week. No REAL advertising agency would ask for all these skills at such a pathetic pay rate. What an insult to Graphic Designers everywhere. Where do these leeches come from anyway? Blow it out your backside Mr. 2 location agency dude!!!

RUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNN! This place is not an ad agency, this is a sweat shop. They say "full time employee position"... what they really mean is contract slave. The people working there are a joke. They call themselves designers, but ask to see their portfolio... my Mom does better with her scrap book software. OH! And as for locations in Denver and St. louis... I'm sure one of their "employees" lives out in Denver and has a 2 bedroom ranch or something. If they respected graphic designers and ad professionals, and if they truly valued their "employes", they would stop posting these ads. Obviously they are getting poorly qualified candidates for the McDonalds wages they are offering or you wouldn't see this posting up here every couple of weeks. If they were truly smart business people, they may realize that if they pay crap, they get crap. ----------------
