Feb 05 Received
an offer from Global Auto Processing
Specialists (now Glovis) in Port Hueneme to be
their IT Administrator. GAPS is a
small (100 employees) West Coast auto processor. They have a contract with Hundai to offload and prepare all their cars destined for
dealers in the Western United States. GAPS is
located on the US Navy base in Port Hueneme which is about 20 minutes from my
house in Camarillo.
I would have been managing an extremely small NT 4.0 domain network of about 15
workstations and 3 servers along with a large RF handheld infrastructure. Think
of how car rental agencies use handhelds these days to speed up the return of
the rental cars. Thats the same sort of thing they do at GAPS. It all flows
into an Oracle database for immediate reporting and processing. Pretty nifty
setup. I would have enjoyed maintaining the system but thats about all it would
have been. When I was interviewed one of the questions was, since there is so
little to do, how will you use all your free time? I decided not to accept this
position in favor of a much more challenging and potentially rewarding
opportunity at Avjet Corporation.
