To me, it reads like "We are a company so cheap, we don't even want to state our name. We need one person who knows everything about IT. We'll probably pay you $12/hr."

    Not that hard to find. About 15 seconds of searching threw up only one company. I'm sure I'm not the only person who can figure it out. :)

    The years of experience is quite a stretch but otherwise seems pretty run of the mill for corporate helpdesk work. It looks like they have cross posted it several times so it is likely that they are just clicking and dropping.

    I would be very surprised if they offered more than 40K a year.

    I need to be a smart ass and reply to that ad. I will start with something like this. Sine you need me to be a systems engineer and a network engineer and an application engineer and a project manager and a desktop support engineer, here is what I think is a fair salary:

    systems engineer: 125k

    network engineer: 125k

    project manager: 125k

    desktop support engineer: 55k

    So in light of all the different skills and responsibilities I'm requesting a 430k per year salary. Please advise if that is within your range.
