Minnesota is peculiar in one way I've found. I've gone on about 12 interviews now, and had numerous other applicatons... and I've not yet done a technical phone screen. Even the actual interviews are almost wholy untechnical. I've gotten maybe 1 question that my wife [professional secretary] couldn't answer! (netmask/subnetting calculation if you're curious)

Do these people just assume that the resume is accurate?
How do they differentiate between experience [say... admining a machine via trivial infrequent tasks] and experience [say... admining a dozen wholy different machines in a high use environment]?

At least in California, every company I was with did phone screens. You wouldn't believe the number of people who had "years" of Unix admin experience who couldn't describe what ps does [and analagous situations with other skills].

Quite odd.

I really hope you get a job - not in some kind of altruistic sympathatic way, but because if you replace anyone in that kind of work environment, you'll have some brilliant stories for The Daily WTF.
