    That position(s) is among the MANY positions Fender has open at present.

    Most of the openings are in Scottsdale, Hollywood, and L.A. But some in other parts of the world, as well.

    I check what's open in the Scottsdale office every so often, just for grins or when I'm pissed off about my job. But I never see anything that's a good match or that I think will pay anywhere near what I'm making now.

    They need to sell Squiers with as good of fretwork as the MIA stuff -- because a player that keeps playing will buy more guitars. A quitter will buy no more guitars and poor fretwork makes for a lot of quitters. Supermarkets sell loss leaders to get people in the store where they buy other things, the fretwork can be their loss leader. Fender Play is like this too. The guitar industry's major competitor is not the other guitar companies, but the video game industry that has figured out how to make level one easy and slowly progress in difficulty up to level ten. The guitar industry makes the hardest to play level first and the easiest to play only for the advanced player (with cash).

    I'd mull it over, but I have this suspicion that working for Big Guitar might be not too different than my time spent in Hell, and by Hell I mean at a big insurance company where I was loved yet still couldn't live with the job.

    20 years ago I might have thrown the duffle in the truck and headed west for that engineer technician job.
    Today, not so much.

    They want too many requirements, certificates and stuff. Not for me.
    I want over six figures if I need to sit in a classroom to obtain these documents but i'd rather not have to go through the pain of doing that.
    I bet I could come up with some great guitars that would make them more money and a better reputation though.

    I know right, and just for a customer service role too.:confused:o_O

    I think I would fail at that anyway. I'm quick to anger if a customer annoys me.
    Having to answer to a boss could be problematic too.:)

    The Mexican jobs seem more interesting, but even those require a BS degree in engineering, which I don't have, besides the experience, which I also lack.
