Corporate Express - Oracle DBA

In 2001 I first noticed that Corporate Express seems to always have a mid-level Oracle DBA position available. The job seems to recycle several times each year. Maybe the hiring manager posts the job to intimidate the existing staff, or maybe they can't hold on to good DBAs because of a personality issue with a senior DBA.
