They will need a heck of a lot more than that.

How about someone to take care of a business *substance* before putting lipstick on a barnyard animal.

Hmm. Funny will be how many people apply for the job to fix the current and previous "efforts".

"Reporting to the Director, Brand PR, the Manager, Brand PR will lead communication efforts on behalf of United with a focus on the airline’s Houston hub,"

Given the size of the airline they probably have several of those.

Before I noticed it was Houston I was going to ask if anyone noticed any broken glass at the Sears Tower.

Funny, had United contacted at least half of us on here before the first statement was released from Munoz, we could have crafted something far better to at least stem the bleeding.

In two minutes, I could have written a statement that couldn't have possibly been any worse than the one vetted by corporate yesholes.

My rate would have been far-less to boot 😂😂

They'd have to obscenely overpay any qualified PR professional who values their career to get them to touch this dumpster fire.

Honestly, I think that PR people of large companies are so deep into their world, that they sometimes oversee the simply solution.

Who in their right mind would want to step into that position just now?
It's not PR Manager...it's Chief Sacrificial Lamb.
