You want to be a millionaire? Head over to Japan’s Domino Pizza and apply for the one-hour position. You heard me right, the popular pizza chain is hiring ONE person for a one-hour position with no education or previous experience required, the opportunity of a lifetime. You do have to be over 18 years of age.
Your compensation if you get the job will be (stand by- are you sitting down?!)
2.5 million yen!!!
So, why the big bucks – you may be asking yourself. It’s a part of the promotional 25th anniversary celebration of Domino’s Pizza and their arrival in Japan. Just so you know, the hourly average wage in Japan is about 1,000 yen so my guess is that they are going to be flooded with applicants.
Imagining the opportunity to get 2.5 hundred thousand times your hourly wage is a huge opportunity. Although I have to be honest, I don’t think working for Domino’s is an easy job – even for an hour! Still, at 2.5 million yen, I’d be willing to give it a shot!
I’ve held many positions in my life but working at a pizza place was never one of them. After researching the trials and tribulations of pizza workers, I came across this website. You can see it here. It was started by Mike Tiffany in Arnold, Missouri and it is written to the US government about the minimum wage paid and the difficulties that pizza delivery people encounter. Mike states:
“Some pizza stores pay their drivers nothing an hour. They pay a small delivery charge and tips. The delivery charge will not pay for gas. It will not cover the cost of car repairs.
As a delivery driver, I have been robbed three times and had at least a dozen more attempts. I was held up by four men with two guns. They got $25 and two pizzas. Another time, I was robbed and they hit me in the mouth with something that put my teeth through my lip. They stole two pizzas and my lip still isn’t right after ten years. The first time I was robbed, a man dragged me by my foot down a flight of stairs in an apartment building. A robber once tried to take the pizza by force but my hand was caught in a strap on the bottom of the pizza bag. The bag opened and the pizza flew out of the bag, landing in a mess. In another attempted robbery, a group of men chased me on foot but I was too fast for them and they got nothing. I jumped in my car and sped away. This job is dangerous in more ways than one. I have many more robbery stories like this and the store won’t even pay me a worthwhile wage for the risk I take daily. My car was once slammed into by a drunk driver while I was on the job.”
Maybe Mike should go to Japan!
