Malone, MCSE Camarillo, CA (818) 257-0513 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
