Windows, Office, Exchange, backup products, some routers knowledge, A+, Network+ certificates. Typical IT support person areas of expertise. CCIE is only desirable, although I admit seems really unnecessary for a "field tech" position even as a desirable. You know very well that depending on the market, employers might as well list PhD in circuit design for a first level support position. After all, we got some PhDs driving cabs, here in Canada ;)
People are assuming it pays $15/hour because the posting itself demonstrates a level of IT employee market abuse. Requirements and desirabilities (7 years experience, desirable CCIE) do not even come close to matching the offer of a 90 day contract. Might as well have pay of $10/hour, no chair and bring your own computer.

I don't like it either when employers are posting ridiculous requirements. Still I think this offer could help someone pay the bills for 3 months until he/she finds something permanent and better. I find the criticism not entirely deserved since the compensatin has not been disclosed (nor the office location for that matter).

There are so many entry level/intermediate job postings that are casually listing the CCIE as a requirement/asset that I'm starting to wonder if these folks even know what a CCIE is.
