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 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.”
