What job ads really mean

By | January 31, 2007

Competitive salary
We remain competitive by paying you less than our competition.

Join our fast-paced company
We have no time to train you.

Casual work atmosphere
We don’t pay enough to expect that you will dress up; a couple of the real daring guys wear earrings.

Some overtime required
Some every night and some every weekend.

Career-minded
Female applicants must be childless (and remain that way).

Seeking candidates with a wide variety of experience
You’ll need it to replace the three people who just quit.

Problem-solving skills a must
You’re walking into perpetual chaos.

Good communication skills
Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do it.
