    Interesting, Ops Mgr, but also responsible for IT and needs knowledge of accounting SW?

    I guess reflects it being a small company. Typically Ops is separate from the other 2 in decent sized Mfg/Dist companies.

    as much as i like the niner guys.

    this job description shows they have not much of an idea how an organization should look like. its more of a check list with existing deficiencies.

    Sounds like a great job and it would be awesome to work in an industry, and for a company, that would be a lot of fun. BUT, it is in California...........no thanks.

    I will take it

    I have a MBA and a winning personality Plus, I ride a Niner. Oh, I hate Southern California, so I would need to work out of the Columbia River Gorge. I will need six figures and I must admit I do spend some time on a 26er.

    I did the same thing. I have been in management for a shipping company for 5 years, so it would be possible, then I saw the CA thing too... no thanks.

    Interesting y'all are anti-California. What's the basis for that thinking? High costs? Something else?

    Seriously, I'm curious. I'm born and raised in the Golden State and as screwed up as it is, I have no real intentions of ever leaving (hard to beat year-round riding, camping, and so on). Most people I know who started here and moved away wish they could come back but can't afford it.

    What is it that keeps people away?

    As for the job listing, I agree with the post that said it sounded like a list of deficiencies in the company. Ops Mgr is my area, but not with Finance and IT responsibilities!

    I'd work for them

    Of course, I don't know squat about manufacturing and distribution, but they seem like a good company to work for. In just a short few years their name struck, and that's saying something. In addition I also ride 650b and 26er that may disqualify me.

    I can't speak for anyone else; one's preference for a place to live and raise a family are very personal. Please don't take offense at my personal reasons for not wanting to live in California.

    Working as a management consultant in the distribution and logistics industry for the past 11 years I have had plenty of extended projects located in California. While it is a beautiful place geographically and I have met many great people, I could never live in your state.

    The state's progressive politics are too anti-liberty and they have managed to destroy California's economy. My belief system is one in which I believe in self-sufficiency and small government. I wish to raise my son in an environment that respects the individual, promotes ethical decision making, and encourages high morals. I know there are a lot of great people in California but for a place to raise my family, California doesn't make the grade.

    Now if I can only figure out how to stop the Californication of Colorado.........

    For me, I think I could happily live in Northern Cal, if I were paid enough to cover the high cost of living. Southern Ca is just too populated, too hot, and too expensive. Not to mention the politics as stated above, though I could get past that for the right price, the heat and the overpopulation, I couldn't get paid enough to deal with.

    Spinone, no offense taken whatsoever. I know full well some people can't stand this state and I definitely recognize it has some serious issues, particularly at the moment w/ the state of the economy. Politically, sometimes this state is in its own realm, ideologically different from anywhere else in the nation.

    To each his/her own. It's good that not everyone wants to live here, or we'd be even more crowded!

    Oh yeah, and I know quite a few who have gone from here to Colorado! Sorry, but the Californication of your state seems to be unstoppable, just as in Wash and Oregon.
