  •  No... not in this position (0+ / 0-)

    This is specialized unit within a larger company.  We have entry level positions elsewhere but I am not involved with that and they are not located in Virginia.

    We do training to get people from mid-level to senior level, we train on our specific applications and we offer training to fill gaps in between specializations of senior people.

    Like I said, these are not entry level roles and we have a lot of people that came in fully capable of performing the job on Day 1.  Of course we train on the specialty of the role but we do not have the headcount bandwidth to teach networking fundamentals to someone freshly minted college grad or certification course completer.  We only hire experienced engineers.

    ...unless you meant Sales.  Which in that case OF COURSE we do training.  Its a 90 to 120 day training curriculum to train people that have ZERO experience.  Now.. admittedly, I have no idea how that works.  I am not, nor have I ever been, a sales guy and I hope that I NEVER EVER am.  

    But I do know that I  have an entire floor of my building with almost 200 people (the vast majority of which are fresh graduates or other 20-30 somethings) making some serious cash.... weekly and monthly bonuses, monthly trips to Jamaica for the top sales team, commission incentives, training, seminar trips, and all kinds of other stuff.   ...and in Q4 of this year we're taking over another half-floor within the building to expand more Sales teams for new products.
