Nice to meet you as well. Have you ever done one of these interviews over the camera before?
Let me tell you a little bit about the job to get started with. It’s not just a job; it’s probably the most important job. The title we have going right now is, “Director of Operations”. But it’s really kind of so much more than that. Responsibilities and requirements are really quite extensive. The first category for the requirements would be mobility. This job requires that you must be able to work standing up most or really, all of the time. Constantly on your feet, constantly bending over, constantly exerting yourself a high level of stamina.
Uh..okay? That’s a lot. For how many like…how many hours?
135 hours to unlimited hours a week it’s basically 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
I’m sure you have chance from time to time to maybe just sit down from here to there, yeah?
You mean like a break? Uh, no. There are no breaks available.
Is that even legal? Okay. So like, no lunch here?
You can have lunch. But only when the associate is done eating their lunch.
Uh…I think that’s a little intense? No. That’s crazy.
Now this position requires excellent negotiation, and interpersonal skills. We’re really looking for someone that might have a degree in medicine and finance and the culinary arts. You must be able to wear several hats. Associate needs constant attention. Sometimes you have to stay up with an associate, throughout the night. You need to be able to work in a chaotic environment. If you had a life, we’d ask you to sort of give that life up. No vacations in fact, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and holidays, the workload is going to go up; and we demand that, with a happy disposition.
Uh…that’s almost cruel. That’s almost a very very sick, twisted joke. I wonder when there’s time to sleep, or…
Oh, no time to sleep.
All encompassing almost.
That’s exactly right.
365 days a year?
No. That’s inhumane. That’s very insane.
The meaningful connections that you make, and the feeling that you get for really helping your associate, are immeasurable. Also, let’s cover the salary. The position is going to pay, absolutely nothing.
“Now I’m thinking about my mom. I’m thinking about all those nights and everything.” 母について考えてる。全ての夜と、そして母がしてくれた全てのことについて。
“Thank you so much for everything you do. I know it doesn’t seem like I appreciate all of it, but I definitely do.” お母さんありがとう。あなたがしてくれたこと全てに感謝してるわ。 感謝しているようには見えなかったかもしれないけど、本当は心からありがとうって思っているわ。
“So mom, I want to say thank you for everything that you’ve done. I love you very much. You’ve been there through think and thin. My mom is just awesome. She’s awesome. “ ママ、あなたがしてくれたこと全てにありがとうと言いたい。心から愛してるわ。どんな時だって、いつも傍にいてくれた。 私のママはすばらしいわ。そう、彼女は本当にすばらしい…
