This Is The World's Toughest Job But Someone You Know Is Already Doing It
Published on 16 April 2014
Unlimited hours a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, there's no breaks and it's all legal. You can eat your lunch but only when the associate is done eating their lunch. If you already have a life, you'll need to give it up. And to top it off, it's unpaid. When it's put like that, it really does sound like the world's toughest job but amazingly, someone you know does it every single day.
When Boston agency Mullen advertised for a director of operations role at Rehtom Inc. the requirements sounded pretty brutal. A 24 hour job with no breaks, little sleep and no wage? Pftt. Impossible. Forget it.
Not surprisingly only 24 people applied. Here's how they reacted when they found out what a director of operations really means.
We've got so much love for our mums right now.
