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


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

CAREER-MINDED: Female Applicants must be childless (and remain that way).

APPLY IN PERSON: If you're old, fat or ugly you'll be told the position has been filled.
