The restaurant Farm Bloomington in Indiana recently placed an ad on Craigslist with 44 over-the-top requirements for a line cook position, including that the candidate:

  • Never complain

  • Never be sick.

  • Only answer "yes, chef" or "oui, chef."

  • "Always show up for work, even if sick as a dog. Let the chef see that you're really sick and send you home."

  • Can handle anything that is thrown at you with a smile.

  • Able to work double shifts for many days without days off.

Harry Shafer, a general manager at FARM Bloomington, told The Daily Mail that a sous  chef put up the job posting "without reading it thoroughly. "

Shafer told FoxNews.com that sick employees are " most often just hungover, so it is our policy that the managers decide if they cannot work."

The job ad has since been removed from Craigslist, but you can find a copy of the entire ad at HappyPlace . According to its web site, Farm Bloomington seems to be a laid back, nice American cuisine restaurant with most entree items priced around $20. The restaurant uses local foods and ingredients and the menu changes seasonally.
