24 People Apply For Fake Job With Horrendous Job Description
USA, USA, USA!
“Only 24 people applied?” Are they kidding? It’s a wonder did.
Out of the millions who reportedly read the ad, only 24 people applied to this prank job listing posted by Boston-based advertising firm Mullen, seeking a “director of operations” for a fictional company named Rehtom Inc.
The listed qualifications ranged from intense to virtually impossible, including:
– A 135+ hour work week (the equivalent of over three full-time jobs).- No breaks.
– No sitting.
– Able to lift up to 75 lbs. on a regular basis.
– Experience or knowledge of psychology, counseling, culinary arts, finance, medicine and social media.
The benefits were even tougher to swallow: no health insurance, retirement plans, vacation days or even holidays off.
Ditto for the salary, which is listed as “pro bono/unpaid.”
