Anytime somebody uses the "my other printer" crap I want to say so why did you leave them or did they fire you?

Foozball! Yes I remember that!

Possum, your boss should of given you a raise a long time ago!

Thanks. I would have settled for a decent manager after the good ones left. The one that's there now wanted me gone for some reason (happy now?) and the owner has been a no show the last several months. We production crew used to think up soap opera names for the place. It's what happens when somebody buys a business they know nothing about and then hire managers with the same level of experience. 

I like thst sentence that says we're here to help. With sll the stuff yhe employee is expected to do how much help you really gonna give?

The Creative Design Specialist will primarily be working in PowerPoint, Word and Adobe Creative Cloud.
This is the sentence that got me. They talk about creative design but their main apps they list are from the Office variety. Which we all know from working in Prepress, that those are where the high end designs actually come from. Not saying that it can't be done, it's just that very good ones are like unicorns. And when the Adobe CC is listed last, it makes me a bit scared of this creative position.

I've had the opposite experience on a couple of jobs. They hired two people after I left.

I've been told multiple times at multiple places that I'm a unicorn because I did clean design work, knew prepress, ran and repaired machines, knew trapping, knew enough networking to keep things connected and talking, and knew the signage manufacturing and installation side of things. Three of the last four jobs I've worked, they laid off/fired two people in my department a few weeks after I started and didn't replace them... I take that to mean one of two things; I did the work of two/three people and their services were no longer required, or, the workload dramatically decreased and there wasn't enough for them to remain employed (I can't back this up as I don't have a frame of reference before I arrived).

Of course, this is printing, and there's always the rationale that the owner was psycho and fired people on a whim.

Right now, even if I could go back, I don't know that I would. After 33 years in and around this industry, maybe it's time for something new. Network security sounds solid; seems like there's been some major issues in that arena lately.

[edit] I just wanted to add that I am a fucking slacker; on my best days, I phone it in.

Some of these descriptions are SOOOO specific, I have to wonder if they are describing the person that rage-quit or that they shouldn't have let go?

The original job Title is "Creative Design Specialist"...

Hardly a well used industry term, that way they don't adhere to industrial salary expectations.
