    You forgot to bold these: "Maintains Corporate Email server... Exchange server maintenance, Terminal server"

    Desktop support/Jr. Server admin along with a little more pay would've been acceptable.

    Yeah, I have heard nothing good of Robert Half on these forums or anywhere else for that matter. They are trying to grossly underpay people and walk away with a huge chunk of change. It seems like if they can't double or triple what they are going to pay you, they aren't interested.

    I can't stand Robert half , in the legal industry they are terrible.

    I manage a law firm, we offered them a salary range of $80-100k for a lawyer, upon interviewing some candidates through them we discovered they were offering the salary of $15/hr.

    And this is why their still in business today. Never deal with these guys, they have always tried to short change me, not happening. By the way, what lawyer would go to an interview knowing it's $15/hr? That's just insane.

    You would be very surprised, everyone thinks that lawyers all make $125-150k starting out. The reality of it is, a select few earn that, but are required to bill 80 hours a week. Keep in mind, billing is not actual hours work.. you spend about 1.25 hours at the office for every hour billed.

    The normal salary of lawyers is around $60k. And typically they are carrying $100k in debt.

    To give you an example, last week I needed to hire two paralegals, 15 out of 50 applications were lawyers for $12/hr position. We currently have two lawyers working as 'interviewers' for us, that are below the paralegals :) I will just say it pays less than the paralegals position.

    They're like the ATT of headhunting firms.

    But anyway, on the job details itself...I've seen several jobs even around here on craigslist asking for degree holders, a few certs and a lot of similar job duties....while paying much less than $20/hr.
