What some recruitment advertisements really mean.

This was a well received piece of humour on a Friday afternoon...

What some recruitment advertisements really mean.

"Competitive salary" = We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

"Must be deadline oriented" = You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day.

"Some overtime required" = Some time each night and some time each weekend.

"Must have an eye for detail" = We have no quality control.

"No phone calls please" = We've filled the job; our call for résumés is just a legal formality.

"Seeking candidates with a wide variety of experience" = You will, in fact, be replacing three people who have just left.

"Problem solving skills a must" = You're walking into a company which is in perpetual chaos.

"Requires team leadership skills" = You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay nor the respect.

"Good communication skills" = Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do it.
