Wegmans Posts World's Most Difficult Job Opening


Wegmans has posted this job opening for a Sous Chef. No matter what your job is now taking this job would be like going out of the frying pan and into the fire, is all we can think.

Under "I Will Add Value By..." (a quaint way of putting it)... there are 11 different requirements, including but not limited to:

Overseeing all elements and operations of the Prepared Foods department, being responsible for sales, contribution (profit), retention, diversity and development as well as interviewing, selecting and arranging training of new team members.

Educating customers and employees on products in the department, making sure to share knowledge to offer complete meal solutions, suggest ways to prepare meal items and work across departments to eliminate knowledge barriers and exceed expectations.

Maintaining the overall appearance of the department to ensure products levels are sustained throughout the day and food is presented in eye-appealing ways to showcase quality and increase sales.

Analyzing financial reports and product trends and reacting with the aim of increasing profitability in the department.

It goes on and on. And this is just, to quote the job posting, "a glimpse at the job." 

Who in the world could do it? Not us, that is for sure. Above is a painting by the Flemish master Joachim Beuckelaer of us trying to do that job. Oh wait. There is one aspect of the job we could handle. One requirement includes "utilizing shrink when appropriate."

We would definitely utilize that shrink!
