”Being a mom is often said to be the hardest job in the world  — and now 24 more people know that being one may come with paltry “benefits.” A Boston-based ad agency, Mullen, created a campaign for Cardstore.com where 24 people interviewed for what they thought to be a corporate  “Director of Operations” position at a company called Rehtom, Inc (can you read backwards?).

The role had seemingly crappy requirements, such as:

  • Must be able to work 135+ hours a week

  • Willingness to forgo any breaks

  • Ph.D. in psychology or real-life equivalent

  • Crisis management skills a must

  • Ability to manage a minimum of 10-15 projects at one time

  • Ability to communicate at all levels (basic to advanced)

  • Ability to work in a chaotic environment

  • Excellent interpersonal skills and a collaborative approach

  • Demonstrated knowledge and experience in negotiating, counseling and culinary arts

  • Unlimited patience

  • Understanding of social media, mobile devices and video games, finance and medicine

And although the salary is $0, the job promises “infinite opportunities for personal growth and rewards.”

Does this job description sound accurate to you?”
