  • Just give me one second. Thank you. Sorry.

  • Hey, Hi.

  • Two minutes. Thank you.

  • Hi, good afternoon. Sorry about that.

  • Hi, nice to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you as well.

  • Have you ever done one of these interviews over the camera before?

  • No.

  • Let me tell you a little bit about the job to get started with.

  • It's not just a job, it's sort of, 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, are really quite extensive.

  • 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.

  • Ur, ur...

  • Okay.

  • That's a lot.

  • For how many, like, for how many hours?

  • A hundred and thirty five hours to unlimited hours a week.

  • It's basically 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  • I'm sure you'll have a chance from time to time to maybe just sit down here and there, yeah?

  • Ur, you mean like a break?

  • Yeah.

  • No. There are no breaks available.

  • Is that, is that even legal?

  • Yeah, of course. Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • So like, no lunch?

  • You can have lunch, but only when the associate is done eating their lunch.

  • 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, in finance, and the culinary arts.

  • You must be able to wear several hats.

  • The associate needs constant attention.

  • Sometimes they have to stay up with an associate throughout the night.

  • ... being able to work in a chaotic environment...

  • If you, 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 work load is gonna go up.

  • And we demand that.

  • With, with a happy disposition.

  • That's almost cruel.

  • That's almost a... a very very sick twisted joke.

  • I worry about when there's time to sleep or...

  • Oh, no time to sleep.

  • Yeah, all, all-encompassing almost.

  • That's exactly right.

  • - 365 days a year? - Yes.

  • No. That's, that's inhumane.

  • That's, that's very insane.

  • The meaningful connections that you make, and the...

  • the feeling that you get from really helping your associate are immeasurable.

  • Also, let's cover the salary.

  • The position is gonna pay absolutely nothing.

  • Excuse me?

  • No!

  • - Nobody's doing that for free. You're crazy. - Yeah, pro bono.

  • Completely for free.

  • No!

  • What if I told you there's someone actually, currently holds this position right now.

  • Billions of people, actually.

  • Who?

  • Moms.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • Moms.

  • That's awesome.

  • - And they meet every requirement, don't they? - Oh, wow!

  • Oh my God, moms are the best.

  • Yes! No pay, they're 24 hours, they're always there.

  • Now I'm thinking about my mom.

  • Yeah, and what are you thinking about her?

  • I'm thinking about all those nights and everything.

  • Thank you so much for everything you do.

  • I know it doesn't seem like I appreciate all of it, but I definitely do.

  • So, mama, I want to say "Thank you" for everything that you've done.

  • I love you very much. You've been there through thick and thin.

  • My mom is just awesome, she's awesome.

Just give me one second. Thank you. Sorry.
