Indiana Restaurant Looks to Hire Line Cook That Will Show Up to Work 'Sick As A Dog'

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 10:20 AM

And really, isn't that what we all want from the people handling our food?

Farm Bloomington is another one of those cool, farm-to-table joints (not unlike a few of the cool places featured in this week's fantastic cover story, come to think of it), only this one tells you straight from the help-wanted ad everything that they require of you, listing 44(!) separate points they'd like you to adhere to.

I mean, that's all well and good — after all, who doesn't want a competent employee that cleans as they go, doesn't take themselves too seriously, asks for days off well in advance, is able to work double-shifts for days at a time, is willing to find ways to make suggestions look like the chef's idea, seasons everything properly...

Yeah. The list goes on. And on. And on...though admittedly, it's not a bad list. Though according to, the ad only stayed on Craigslist for a short time before being pulled:

Harry Shafer, general manager at FARMbloomington, said a sous chef put up the job posting— which was taken from another site— without reading it thoroughly.

“It was taken down as soon as we were aware of the negatives listed. I promise that the ad does not reflect the kind of business we run,” Shafer told in an email.

While the ad only stayed up on Craigslist for a few minutes, FARMBloomington admitted it did have some bad help in the past.

Shafer added: “’Sick’ associates are most often just hungover, so it is our policy that the managers decide if they cannot work.”

As noted, the original ad has been pulled...but has the ad in full. Check it out here.
