Worlds Toughest Job

A Boston agency posted this job listing online for a "director of operations" position at a company called Rehtom Inc. The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:
• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0
The job ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placements. Only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.
Check out what happened below. It's worth watching to the end.

'bout half way through I figured it was all about us moms.
Sweet.

Also, the men in the interview...we call them Mr. Mom? [like the movie with Keaton?]

My son & I saw this on the news this morning, and before they could finish, he goes,"Yep,this is about Mother's Day." He also said, "Briliant!"--yes indeed..it is. Blessings

Hi Mari! Mom's really do 'meet every requirement.' Sounds like a horrid job on paper doesn't it? But it's just the best job I've ever had.
Thank you Mari :)
