o, I've recently been presented with what seems like an incredible opportunity. I would definitely appreciate some advice from everyone, especially if you have ever been involved in something like this before. Anyway, heres the basic scenario:
An new cutting edge company has the following job opening: They need people who will go to a specified location every morning at 4:30 AM. The location will be the same every day. You then pick up an enormous pot of hot oats. It weighs about 30 lbs, but it has a lid on it that is snapped shut so that it won't spill. There are two handles on the side of the pot that do not get hot at all. However the rest of the pot is extremely hot due to the scalding hot oats inside of it. You must hold it away from your body to prevent from being burned badly. This can be difficult due to the weight of the pot, but as long as you are careful, you will never get hurt.
Your job is to move the pot 1 mile in distance. There is a painted white line that you must follow, and you must stay within 2 ft of that line at all times. The line is completely straight- no tricky turns or anything like that. The tricky part is that speed is an issue. You are not timed, but there will be multiple supervisors watching over you. Should you not give maximum effort each and every day, then you will be fired. You do not need to be in great shape; You just need to give maximum effort. And coincidentally, you probably will get in better shape from doing this each day.
Heres the interesting bit. They will pay you half a mil up front. But you are tied into a 5 year contract and you must turn up for work every day. If you dont you will be fired and you have to give the half a mil back. If you quit you have to give the money back also. If you turn up drunk you will be fired and have to pay the money back. The only way you can have a day off is if you have serious injury which prevents you from walking the distance.
Would you take the job?
