Best Job Announcement Ever: Wine.Woot Grunt for "Life-sucking position" 

Saw this on

Seeking gullible, starry-eyed plebe for entry-level, total-immersion, life-sucking procurement and sourcing position to feed the insanely popular website

What's in it for you? An underwhelming salary, all-but-unobtainable commission structure, hellishly long hours, and scant opportunity for upward mobility. Excited yet? There's more! You'll report to a self-absorbed, demanding boss, and expose yourself to the ridicule of a merciless, unrelenting 24/7 online community dissecting every curated wine selection you’d bring to the table.

Applicant must be wicked smart, Internet savvy, and possess a natural ability to evangelize in person, on the phone, and via the keyboard. Of course, a strong interest in wine and top-shelf writing skills are necessary, too. Industry experience gives you the inside track to what remains, despite all of the above, perhaps the coolest job in the wine industry.

If this still sounds like something you can handle, submit resumes to and let's procure beautiful wine together.
