Apologies for any mistakes. ..I am typing on my phone.
The job reposted yesterday. So here we go again.
G-man said that what probably happened was they didn't get a large enough pool of applicants so they are casting a wider net. This posting is for grades 7 and 8 (G-man is an 8 now)...before they posted for 8/9.
The good thing about this is that he will probably have more experience than most of the applicants just by the nature of things. The bad thing is that there is a very slim chance that they wouldn't find him eligible for the 8...which would mean an even larger pay cut.
But first things first...application is due Monday. The stupid piece of paper that was the problem last time is in process and should be signed by Thursday. And then we wait....
