Ah, Margaritaville Instances Sq., a land of contrasts. A beacon of seaside chill in the course of New York’s most upsettingly busy neighborhood. A spot with horrible meals and surprisingly good cocktails. A spot that has filed for Chapter 11 chapter twice in an try to refinance $309 million in debt, elevating the query, “If Margaritaville is foreclosed, is there an opportunity I may purchase the large light-up Statue of Liberty??”
Nevertheless it seems to be prefer it may survive. This morning, a buddy despatched me this job itemizing for a director of operations on the New York location. Too unhealthy I don’t match the invoice. In keeping with the necessities, nobody does.
The total-time place boasts a six-figure wage and advantages like tuition reimbursement and a “enjoyable, upbeat working setting.” However other than job duties like main managers in strategic improvement and sustaining income studies, there are a slew of bodily necessities and “Important Psychological Alertness Necessities” that make me surprise if anybody at any job can reside as much as this.
Most of the bodily necessities, akin to the power to raise 30 kilos and spend most of your time standing, do sound like a number of jobs that contain guide labor. Nevertheless, Margaritaville can be on the lookout for somebody whose “particular imaginative and prescient talents embrace shut, distance, shade, peripheral, depth notion and the power to regulate focus.” I’m unsure why being colorblind could be a detriment to this job, however these bodily necessities do look like written with the ADA in thoughts, with a notice about affordable lodging. The corporate additionally warns, “Hazards embrace, however are usually not restricted to, cuts from damaged glass and metallic cans, burns, slipping and tripping,” which sound like customary restaurant and kitchen dangers.
However the true drawback comes with what’s listed below the bolded header, “psychological alertness necessities.” On the checklist: Candidates should be prepared to “work in a relentless state of alertness,” “work in an unfatigued state,” and have the “means to pay attention.” I’m out. Who within the historical past of jobs has ever labored in an unfatigued state? I’m solely in a relentless state of alertness if a jaguar is searching me. Attempting to put in writing this sentence I simply stared at my curtains for a great 45 seconds, thoughts fully clean.
If Margaritaville is hiring, maybe that signifies that the chapter labored and it’s not being foreclosed. However godspeed to whoever will get this job. I suppose you have to to be alert to not get distracted by the sunshine present on the Statue of Liberty.
