A position that previously involved reviewing, sorting and filing official documents reviewed by the President under previous administrations now requires staffers who are handy with scotch tape and have a keen eye for reassembling documents that have been physically torn apart by President Donald Trump, according to two former staffers who spoke to Politico.
Trump reportedly still rips up scraps of paper and throws them out.
But Trump's habit of ripping up documents after he has used them - sometimes just once down the middle, but other times into confetti-like shreds - has created a major headache for the record-keepers in the opening months of his presidency.
So they enlisted records management staff to piece them back together, according to a report from Politico. Instead, they chose to clean it up for him, in order to make sure that the president wasn't violating the law.
"If it was negative, it was definitely going to get torn up", Lartey said. "I had a letter from Schumer - he tore it up", he said.
Solomon Lartey, 54, who earned $66,000 (£50,000) prior to his dismissal in March, gave a similar account of Trump's alleged bad habit.
"I'm looking at my director, and saying, 'Are you guys serious?'", Mr Young said.
The White House, though, has said it has a backup system to preserve even the deleted tweets. He had never had to tape the president's papers back together again.
But it has led to experienced officials with significant salaries sorting through piles of notes and taping them up, Politico reported. We?re making more than $60,000 a year, we need to be doing far more important things than this.
Lartey said he was never given an explanation for his firing, which he said came at the end of the day on March 23.
Lartey and Young claimed that they were ultimately rewarded for this indignity by being forced to sign resignation letters earlier this year without being given any indication as to why they were getting axed. "It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans".
The former staffers said that as recently as their departure, employees were still tasked with taping the pages back together.
