A job search can be incredibly stressful. Scrolling through countless ads, crafting that perfect CV for that ideal job you have your eye on, keeping up with the constantly changing marketplace—is undoubtedly a daunting task.
And the companies looking for employees are certainly not making it any easier. They seem entirely detached from reality with unrealistic job requirements and bonus systems that revolve around free snacks and Foosball tables.
They haven't got the slightest idea of what employees really need. And what makes it even more frustrating is that they don't seem interested in finding out.
It's like the upper management and HR are living in their own worlds full of Foosball tables, free snacks, Jeans Fridays, and team-building games. r/recruitinghell is a subreddit where both candidates and recruiters can share their absurd hiring experiences, and some of the posts there are borderline pure lunacy.
We have selected 40 of the "best" ones, so keep on scrolling and see what awaits you out there if you are looking for a job. Or do you prefer not to know?
Just don't let the posts here discourage you. There are a lot of good companies out there, you just have to find them.
To get the job, you have to start working five years before being born (to get the experience needed). Also, it would help if you didn’t demand salary but be content with a few free snacks and a couple of rounds on the Foosball table.
Of course, if you have time for it because most of these jobs require multitasking and the ability to work under pressure and with tight deadlines. Oh yes, all that comes with a fun office atmosphere.
Sounds great! Where do I sign up?
