Domino's Pizza offers job for US$30,000 an hour
Domino's Pizza is offering a job for one lucky new recruit at a pay rate of a whopping ¥2.5 million (US$30,750) an hour. If that were continued for the year over a 35-hour working week, it would amount to an annual salary of over US$60 million, roughly 20 times more than Domino's Pizza's CEO receives and 160 times more than U.S. President Obama's US$400,000 salary. But it won't continue for the year. In fact the job will last exactly one hour.
The new recruit doesn't need any experience or education but they must be over 18 and be ready to start (and finish) their new job in December.
The announcement last week will be followed by more details this Wednesday, but the offer is part of the U.S. pizza outlet's 25th anniversary of launching in Japan.
The minimum wage was raised to ¥730 per hour earlier this year, so the new staff member will be earning 3,425 times that. The Japan Times reports that the average hourly wage in Tokyo for part-timers is ¥1,000, according to government figures.
Earlier this year Domino's impressed in a pizza challenge that commended their ease of online ordering and pizza satisfaction.
