The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:

• Standing up almost all the time

• Constantly exerting yourself

• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week

• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary

• No vacations

• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and other holidays

• No time to sleep

• Salary = $0


The job listing was promoted with paid advertising and received over 2.7 million impressions

The ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placement, but only 24 people responded, according to Ad Week. Each of those people then sat down to interview for the job and all were shocked at what was required of them: no sitting, no vacations, no guaranteed sleep and zero money.


"Is that even legal?" one applicant asked. "Nobody is going to do that for free!" another responded.

But billions of people do all this and more every day, and when the applicants found out just who holds the title of "World's Toughest Job," some were brought to tears
