Brutally honest job ads

Pudding Job AdSometimes job ads over-sell. We are so eager to hire great people that we tell a rosy story about how wonderful our workplace is.

But if your story doesn’t match the reality, you bring in people who are unlikely to succeed due to the mismatch in expectations.

We have an amazing work culture at GasPedal. But it’s not for everyone, so we tell it like is.

This web page is specifically designed to attract people like us, and repel the wrong folks.  (If you like what you read, give me a call…)

Of course, this sign from Rice to Riches does it better.

    “MEN WANTED: FOR HAZARDOUS JOURNEY. SMALL WAGES, BITTER COLD, LONG MONTHS OF COMPLETE DARKNESS, CONSTANT DANGER, SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL. HONOUR AND RECOGNITION IN CASE OF SUCCESS. SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON”
