The world’s toughest job, you might think: what kid of job is that? Is it the one Elon Musk and Bill Gates do? Is it the one where people work overnight shifts just to earn an extra cash to pay the bills? It’s neither.
For more than 100 years, American Greetings Corporation has been a creator and manufacturer of innovative social expression products that assist consumers in enhancing their relationships to create happiness, laughter and love.
In this particular video, they created a fake job interview and posted it on online and in newspapers, then did a few real interviews. The job title was: Director of Operations.
Few people called to “get” the job and as they chat with the interviewer, they think the job is way harder than they thought.
“The title that we have going right now is Director of Operations, but it’s really kinda so much more than that” says the interviewer.
“Responsibilities and requirements are really quite extensive” continues the interviewer. “This job requires that you must be able to work standing up most, or really all of the time. Constantly on your feet, constantly bending over…”
One of the interviewee asked for how many hours they need to do the job. The interviewer continued “For 135 hours a week, to unlimited times a week… basically 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
After so many unbelievable requirements, one of the interviewee asked: “Is that even legal?” Another one said that “It’s cruel” what they require.
After few minutes of interview, the interviewer revealed what’s really the job.
His answer moved me to tears.
