    That sounded like the perfect job for Crashton, until I got to the part that said, "Plays nice with others and does not run with scissors". :lol::lol:

    Similarly, could it be done from another location in Ohio, and require only occasional commutes? I've just moved to Columbus, but would be willing to run up from time to time....

    In my opinion this is no longer a search for a person to fill a position but has become a way to get ones name in front of people quite often by bumping the thread again and again.

    I've tried to take the high road here and let this company put up their job opening. They didn't ask me if they could post, no, that would have been polite. All my calls to Mike at this company asking of they would like to be a part of Motoring Alliance have been met with stalling at best. I'm not one that pushes the hard sell on any company. I called right after they posted and sent them the materials they asked for. No response. I waited a month and contacted them again. I was asked to send the materials again. I did, again no response. I called weeks later to follow up and was pretty much given the bums rush off the phone.

    If they did not want to support this site then a simple no at any time would have sufficed. I'm not a bitter person but now I'm feeling used.

    Let your conscience be your guide. If you want to support a company that works in such a manner by all means it's your money. But, keep in mind they offer nothing that any other Sponsor of this site doesn't already carry or can source for you.

    Support those that support you.
