Then it got worse. As advice blogger Allison Green continued to correspond with the letter writer, the letter writer proceeded to tell her about the final interview process, in which 20 candidates had to spend all day and night interviewing.
And in this case, interviewing turned out to mean "all of you have to find the director of our organization's house and provide dinner and a show for 40 people in two and a half hours."
You may be thinking, as I was, was this for a food service job, or reality television, or a hoax? Apparently it was not. Another person at the same interview chimed in with more details and confirmation in the comments.
The organization that does these interviews on a regular basis? Operation Smile.
You may have heard of them.
