Re:
We get calls all the time for the billboard that looks like a road sign and says:

(picture of gear)<----Great Outdoors
Great big butt ---->

Mothers call in all the time, saying "you're hurting my children! Why would you swear on a billboard?!" hahahaha

Re:
OMG! Hurting my children. They learn worse from playing at recess than by seeing such boards! :P

Re:
Exactly. It's so stupid.

And on our webpage, it says "we test on animals" (which is a link to a commercial we did that has nothing to do with animals, I don't think) and someone called in SO MAD that we test on animals. Silly people with no sense of humor. :P

Re:
I know! Someone from our distribution center called here in a panic earlier this morning, saying "someone's hacked into the website! Look!" but it was our ad. HA.

Do you work for columbia 'in general', or specifically for the people who do their ads/web site?

Re:
I work for Columbia in general, I guess you could say. I work at the headquarters, and help out PR and promotions in addition to facilities (mailroom, front desk, shipping, etc). I'm pretty much a floater so I know everybody and have helped lots of departments at least once.

Re:
Yeah? We need a PR manager! :)
Yeah, it's a really good company, and I love (most of) the people who work here. (If you read back in my LJ, you'll see there's one or two people in particular who piss me off.)

Re:
There's always a few bad apples... :)

Hah, a PR manager! I'd apply in a minute if the job was in Canada... |shrugs!|

Not that I don't like the states, it's just all the hassle you have to go through, the red tape you have to cut, etc...

Couldn't you apply for the job?

Re:
Oh, I don't know anything about managing PR. I'm the peon. I'm workin' my way up. :)

Re:
Totally understand
But it's not that hard. You could probably pick up a few good PR and Management books and learn as you work. :)

Re:
I'm sure I could! I don't think it's anything I couldn't handle with a little practice. But I don't have the degree or the experience, so I can't manage ANYTHING. :)
