COMPETITIVE SALARY:  We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

FLEXIBLE HOURS:  Work 55 hours; get paid for 37.5.

GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS:  Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want you to do.

ABILITY TO HANDLE A HEAVY WORKLOAD:  You complain, you're fired.

CAREER-MINDED:  We expect that you will want to flip hamburgers until you are 70.

SELF-MOTIVATED:  Management won't answer questions

SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED:  Some time each night and some time each weekend

DUTIES WILL VARY:  Anyone in the office can boss you around.

COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT:  We have a a huge staff turnover.

SALES POSITION REQUIRING MOTIVATED SELF-STARTER:  We're not going to supply you with leads; there's no base salary; you'll wait 30 days for your first commission payment.

CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE:  We don't pay enough to expect that you'll dress up; well, a couple of the real daring guys wear earrings.

SOME PUBLIC RELATIONS REQUIRED:  If we're in trouble, you'll go on TV and get us out of it.

SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE:  You'll need it to replace three people who just left and there are no handover notes.

PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST:  You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.
