This made me smile...

As we are recruiting a couple of staff at the moment...the following caught my eye and I found it very amusing...does any of the following ring a bell!!?

The Hidden Meaning of Recruitment Ads:
"Competitive salary rate" - We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.
"Duties will vary" - Anyone in the office can boss you around.
"Join our dynamic company" - We have no time to train you.
"Casual working environment" - We don't pay enough to expect that you will dress up.
"Must be deadline oriented" - You will be 6 months behind on your first day.
"Some overtime required" - Some time each night, some time each weekend.
"Must have an eye for detail" - We have no quality control.
"Seeking wide experience" - You will need to replace three people who just left.
"Good communication skills" - Management communicates poorly, so you have to figure out what they want and do it.
"Problem solving skills needed" - You are walking into a company in continual chaos.
"Requires team leadership skills" - You will have the responsibilities of a manager without the pay or respect.

....have a good working day folks!!

Oh...had an absolutely lovely evening...lots chatted about and we are looking forward to another person joining us each week for dinner and talk...probably from next week...the more the merrier I say!

Bye for now....M

LOL! I haven't worked FOR anyone in ages, so I've missed some of these realities of work. But it's likely I will be joining a new company soon, so perhaps I'm in for some discovery!
