I'm not going to respond. Why would they even save my resume / application?

A lot of companies hold onto resumes for a good amount of time, at least in my general group of industries... It's a way of avoiding having to go through an extended search process when there's open positions. I know a couple software engineers from my old company that were hired that way. The hiring manager cold called them and offered them better jobs than whatever they were doing so everyone ends up happy. The company gets someone thsy don't have to put through (another) rigorous screening process because they already did it and the new employees got better money in a job they know they're qualified for. That said, five years is a long time.

It is. But I feel a little weird about it because it's a slight pay cut (as in 2.8%). But I'm gonna be able to tolerate the job a lot more.

Agreed but I will not reduce my purchases. Also I figure with this job I won't be leaving early all the time so I'll make up what I lose.
