That’s right. Today’s missive starts off with a great job opportunity. I have been asked to help find an exceptional person to work as Area General Manager for a great transportation company. The lucky winner will get to wander around from location to location, oversee several hundred wonderful drivers, watch their mechanics keep the vehicles running, keep their great district managers within budget, and ensure their customers are smiling when they think of the exceptional service they receive each and every day.
Amazingly, considering how cool this job is, they will pay you very well and offer you the chance to get a bonus! Best of all, you get to be based not too far from where I live in Birchrunville so can easily take me out to lunch to celebrate your success landing this glorious position. One last thing, you need to live in Southeastern Pennsylvania as that’s where your butt will sit.
Here’s a bit of an overview:
Rapidly growing multi-state transportation company needs an Area General Manager to direct the operations of multiple locations. The primary responsibilities of the position includes setting goals for each operation, developing the management teams, providing excellent customer service, and implementing driver training and safety programs. Budgeting and cost control experience is a must. The right person for this position has a proven track record of leading an operation with revenues in excess of $50 million.
Qualifications include at least 8 years demonstrated success in operations management with profit and loss responsibility. Must have the ability to hire and develop managers and supervisors in multiple locations. Must have excellent interpersonal skills and good accounting and computer knowledge. Excellent benefits. Southeastern Pennsylvania location.
So…if this sounds like you, email a resume and whatever else you feel is useful to show how exceptional you are to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to mention you saw it here and send me a copy or at least a note that you responded.
And, before you ask, sure…if it’s not the job for you (or even if it is) send this missive to anyone you know who might be interested in the best job ever for an Area General Manager.
Okay, enough about that. on the quotidian front (you do remember this word from my last note) I am still reading mounds of ridiculously incomprehensible legalese. (also from last note) Oh my aching head.
Luckily I have booked my trip for the end of August to Detroit (EOS Worldwide Quarterly Meeting) with a stop on the way there on Whidbey Island. It never ceases to amaze me that on a flight from Philadelphia to Detroit and back I can include a stop in Seattle for the same price. Lucky for me I have friends and clients on Whidbey Island which is in Puget Sound right in front of Seattle so I get to visit them for free!
Oddly, just yesterday I was asked about the possibility of visiting Portland Oregon in the middle of August. Two trips to the northwest part of the country to places 173 miles apart from a place 2868 miles away two weeks apart. Scheduling!
And now, since it’s Sunday and a beautiful sunny, warm, low humidity day in Birchrunville…I am off for a walk. I hear the woodland critters calling me.
