A Gala shop owner in Dunmanway, Co Cork has posted an ad to recruit part-time teens for the summer season but he has made a list of unusual attributes for successful candidates.
According to the Sun, Colm O’Sullivan posted his ad spelling out exactly what he doesn’t want in an employee. According to The Sun, Colm doesn’t want “Daddies asking for a job for their son because he’s a big strapping lad, is a good footballer, feeds the neighbour’s goldfish when they’re on holidays and cuts the lawn every Saturday.
“Mammies asking for a job for their daughter and telling us she’s great around the house, emptied the dishwasher at Christmas, cleans her bedroom every Saturday and loves meeting new people yet is sitting in the car outside the door!”, reports The Sun.
He told The Sun: “I want to see the teens coming in on their own and leaving the parents outside. I hope at the end of this they will have CVs with work experience as part of that.”
The positions are now over-subscribed and he has devised a plan to provide his new employees with up to 10 hours paid work each week to spread the wages around a large group of teens who want to work.
