Job opening for honey drone

I was briefly lured by this help-wanted ad from Andrew of Andrew’s Honey at the Union Square Greenmarket. But beside the fact that he wants someone who can speak at least two languages “not at a middle school level”*, there’s this:

It should be understood from the onset that within that stand, whatever I say or do is always right and that anyone working for me at that stand within that 12 x 12 foot space must accept that. This includes when I contradict myself from moment to moment. It is never a negotiation.

That said, I am (usually) very nice and tolerant. So long as you do not argue or whine.

* I could probably handle the shut-up and put-up aspect of this gig, but I’ve only ever gotten as far as college-level languages and never became fully fluent in Spanish or German. Anyway, you can read the full text of the ad after the jump.

Work in nature, in the great outdoors, meet and talk with interesting people… learn lots about bees and beekeeping…

Help me sell excellent honey at Union Square on Wednesdays, and maybe other days in other places.

I sell New York City honey, and honey from New York State and Connecticut.

I am looking for someone clean, smart, speaks at least two languages (and speaks them well, not at a middle school level) and is not afraid to be bold and creative in approaches to selling honey and soap.

It should be understood from the onset that within that stand, whatever I say or do is always right and that anyone working for me at that stand within that 12 x 12 foot space must accept that. This includes when I contradict myself from moment to moment. It is never a negotiation.

That said, I am (usually) very nice and tolerant. So long as you do not argue or whine.

Still sound appealing? In fact it is a fun job and if you like people and being outside, and hearing funny and sometimes (often) cutting remarks, you will enjoy yourself.

The ONLY way to apply for this job is to show up in person at Union Square on Wednesday, look for Andrew’s Honey near the corner of 16th and Union Square West.

I would need help between 7AM and 6PM, but not necessarily all of those hours.

Apply in person. Do not e-mail. Bring with you a piece of paper that has

1) Your photo (so I can remember you amongst all of the others)
2) Your full name, address, contact information, and the languages that you speak well.
3) The times you are available on Wednesdays.

That’s it.

– Andrew
