Osscar Mayer Wienermobile job: Who can apply and what is the salary?
Are you far away, wanting to drive across the country in search of adventure and most of all get excited about processed pork products?
If you want to tour America in a van shaped like a hot dog, then send Kraft Heinz an application to drive one of its Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles full-time.
It turns out the lunchmeat purveyor needs creative souls to get behind the wheel for a year-long assignment, going from state to state to attend high-profile events and coordinate press on its behalf. .
But the demanding job isn’t for everyone, so Oscar Meyer wants to know “he cuts the mustard?”
Who can apply?
Due to the many image problems of salted and baked sausage meats, not everyone with an ardent love of eating their body weight in hot dogs may qualify to drive a wine-shaped vehicle for fun. of others.
Oscar Meyer has a very specific group of applicants he wants to attract—preferably the kind of lively young people fresh out of college who have a proven ability to deliver stories that resonate with consumers.
“Applicants must have a BA or BS degree, preferably in public relations, journalism, communications, advertising or marketing,” her ad said.
Only those candidates are ideally placed to rekindle America’s love of wild dogs that were once as ubiquitous as baseball and apple pie.
What exactly does it pay?
Good question. Unfortunately, the details of the salary are as much a mystery as what exactly is fed through Oscar Meyer’s industrial-scale meat grinders.
According to the job ad, pay is “competitive,” which is about as descriptive as the “mechanically separated chicken and pork” listed in his hot dog’s ingredients.
What other advantages are there?
There are some tasty perks, though: on-the-job expenses are covered by the company, unspecified perks are listed (unlimited supply of frankfurters?) and those lucky enough to become official Hotdoggers also get to wear Oscar team gear Mayer. No extra charge, either: they’re offered for free, according to the ad.
More importantly, though, Oscar Mayer promises that each of his elite hot dog promoters will become something of a “mini-celebrity in small towns and big cities” as they attend various events and sit down for interviews with the media.
What kind of professional experience do you expect?
Oscar Meyer says Wienermobile executives will gain experience in a self-managed position with “a lot of responsibility.”
These include but are not limited to being your own traveling public relations firm, as well as introducing TV, radio and print journalists for a chance to preach the Oscar Meyer story.
The few who pilot its fleet of Wienermobiles are also expected to contribute content to the company’s social brand. Currently, Oscar Mayer has over 40,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram, for example, and no doubt the top dogs at Kraft Heinz headquarters will be expecting those numbers to grow.
How many can hope to drive the Wienermobile?
There are only six Wienermobiles traveling the country at all times, according to the company.
And candidates should hurry to apply because time is running out. The deadline for applications is January 31.
