A job interview you won't forget
"It's not only a job. It's probably the most important job."
That's how a listing for "director of operations" was described. Only a few dozen people applied to the #worldstoughestjob - and no wonder.
You have to work 135 hours a week, 24/7. And there are no breaks. Forget about holidays - you'll be working even harder, and you're expected to be happy about it.
You must be able to work standing up most or all of the time. Constantly on your feet. Constantly bending over. Constantly exerting yourself. With a high level of stamina.
"That's a lot. For how many hours?" one applicant asked.
"135 hours. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
There are no breaks available.
"Is that even legal?" another applicant wondered.
"You can have lunch, but only when the associate is done eating their lunch," they were told.
Not only are you required to have excellent interpersonal skills, but a degree in medicine, finance or culinary arts is preferred.
And your "associate" needs constant attention. You'll have no time to sleep.
Oh...and there's no pay.
"That's almost cruel. That's almost a very sick, twisted joke," remarked an interviewee.
"Nobody would do that for free!" said one interviewee.
In fact, the "job" is motherhood. And the "return on investment" is immeasurable.
"While no health or dental insurance, no pension and no paid holidays are offered, this job provides infinite opportunities for personal growth and rewards. Emotional fulfillment and extraordinary impact on associate success provides a lifetime of purpose and meaningful connection," the job ad stated.
The prank by "cardstore" has had over 6 million views on YouTube. No wonder why!
Of course, we could argue that fatherhood deserves just as much of a shout-out from "cardstore" too...but maybe that one is in the works?
