Oof. And you thought your job was tough.
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.”
“This job provides infinite opportunities for personal growth and rewards,” the ad explains. “Emotional fulfillment and extraordinary impact on associate success provides a lifetime of purpose and meaningful connection.”
Mullen conducted mock interviews with the applicants via webcam. Stick around for the punchline near 2:52:
