Have you ever wanted to waste your time applying for jobs that don't exist? Have you ever wanted to waste $5 a gallon gas for something that's almost completely useless? Have you ever wanted to decide between feeding your family and getting a non-existent job?

Well, you can do that by applying for a job as a Structural Engineer at Santa Rosa based MKM & Associates, founded by Larry Miyano, Jeffrey Kennedy, and Bud Malmanis. These principals shall remain nameless but go by the initials of Larry Miyano, SE; Jeff Kennedy, SE; Bud Malmanis, SE; Eric Kraeger, SE; and John Cook, SE. At MKM & Associates, you will get to be told in person that they don't have to work even though they placed an ad in the SEAONC website or on Craigslist.  Ironically, they design churches, so we guess they never read the Commandment stating Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness. This really proves they are not LEEDers, but structural stupid-ists. Why have a potential employee waste gas on coming to an interview of a non-existent job when the information could have been disseminated
over the phone or through Skype?

 If MKM knew the job was already filled before the candidate got there, why didn't they call the candidate up and tell the candidate that the job was filled? Perhaps MKM is partying like it's 1989 because they apparently do not believe the use of technology to make their work easier! This incident makes Dr. Evil say: Why must I be surrounded by fr**k*n' idiots?  The alleged real reason MKM makes people show up: to get candidates to show their work samples because the associates there cannot come up with ideas of their own. It's like getting candidates to do their thinking work for free! Even worse yet, it's a sick a twisted way to get them to give them potential new clients. MKM & Associates is so dumb they are willing to throw away an employee who saves their clients $120 million!

At MKM & Associates, they didn't invent discrimination against the long-term unemployed - they just perpetrate it. Folks, how many companies post ads in the SEAONC website and Craigslist only to later tell you in an interview that they are not hiring? It merely means they either have no actual work or they practice job discrimination or it could be completely something different such as keeping the firm's name out there in the public to give the appearance of expanding when they really are not.  It clearly demonstrates they lack the ability to plan their future hiring needs. Why else would someone call a potential employee in for an interview only to later be told the firm doesn't have the work? This sounds like a firm that is an accomplice to blacklisting of worthy individuals, then? Perhaps!

MKM & Associates did some pretty bad things like not check excellent references of candidates. It makes people wonder whether they participate in the blacklisting of others. MKM & Associates can be best characterized as sheep-le!  At MKM & Associates, they didn't invent blacklisting and discrimination against the long-term unemployed, they just perpetrate it. Why else would they have a candidate come to a job interview for a non-existent job? Sounds like Dodie Malmanis needs to come by and take a little off the top, if you know what we mean!

If you folks out there thought that was bad, check out what they told this potential employee through an
email that we have received. Larry Miyano and the principals stated by email they would rather overwork their employees than to hire one to pick up the slack. Insurance companies have seen this email and
love it because they will make more money off MKM in insurance claims. Sounds like MKM has slaves instead of ethical human beings, don't you think?

MKM is so upset their tactics have caught the attention of California politicians such as California state senator Mike Allen. He's the one who introduced a bill banning discrimination against the long-tern unemployed. What better way to get it passed than to introduce an industry who needs it like the structural engineering community! MKM was on the road to success but they only got to SUCK!

As a result of these tactics, it's now time to reveal to the public at large who these people are, who they work with, who they do business with, and what buildings they have designed. After all, if a firm is good at wasting a potential employee's time and money, what stops them from wasting their clients' time and money? Nothing, apparently! Now if they want to apologize to this individual for wasting his/her time, they are welcome to do so! It's a great way point of discussion while you are getting your hair and/or nails done at the Rohnert Park-based Lion's Mane Salon where Bud Malmanis's wife Dodie works. For right now, let's list the buildings they have designed. After all, it's easier to avoid a business when you know they discriminate against the long-term unemployed.
