… Over the course of the first TWO years! That’s four raises in two years after starting at more than $16/hour for full-time work (See Below), this position offers great growth opportunities as well! The growth opportunities obviously apply to the full-time positions below, but if you’re working a seasonal gig and change your mind, there’s always room to grow in that regard as well!

purplePTSD.com is new, and is a dream of our owner Joe Johnson and really the other seven writers who propagate the site with daily content not really that different that the dream of a Danish immigrant named Hans Andersen who started Andersen Corporation in 1903! Joe’s dream is to cover the Minnesota Vikings for a living. So far it’s been so good, and we’ve actually reached the point where we’ve had to upgrade our server because we were repeatedly crashing based on the amount of people being on the site at the same time (What a good problem to have!). We were able to upgrade to the largest server that our hosting provider had thanks to our main sponsor, Andersen Corporation.

The Super Bowl Experience

Sponsors like Andersen Corp. are essential to this dream, as they help us offset the costs of running the site and for Joe, keeping enough Diet Mountain Dew in his veins to help him write his classic articles such as “The Vikings are Going to Win the Super Bowl” and “Moritz Boehringer is Going to Take Adam Thielen’s Spot on the Roster” (Both in 2016).

So, even if you’re not looking for a new career, even sharing this article/job links in anyway you can would be a gigantic help to our site and team. You guys have gone above and beyond in the past when it came to supporting our other sponsor(s), so I’m hoping you can help prove that purplePTSD.com is a great resource for companies that are actively hiring and that also want to get the word out to currently employed “Passive Job-Seekers”. So, any shares of this to your friends would be amazing, as we at purplePTSD.com only partner with companies that we believe in and from everything I’ve read about working for Andersen (From ironically named GlassDoor.com and Indeed.com) this is a great opportunity that is a great place to work that offers above average compensation compared to industry competition. That’s how we do things at purplePTSD.com and it’s really cool to work with similar companies as our sponsors!
