Wanted: pizza boy Salary: $31 000/hr

IOL pizza Domino's Pizza Japan is set to hire one lucky person at the rate of 2,500,000 yen ($31 030) for an hour's worth of work in December.

Tokyo - Take-out pizza chain hiring. Aged over 18, no experience required. Uniform provided. Salary: $31 000 an hour.

As part of a series of events commemorating the 25th anniversary of its arrival in Japan, Domino's Pizza Japan is set to hire one lucky person at the rate of 2 500 000 yen ($31 030) for an hour's worth of work in December.

A company spokesman declined to provide further details until November 10, but the company's website said that anyone who wants the job will need to file an application. Those passing to the next stage will undergo an interview.

“Basically it's anybody over 18, no questions about education or experience,” the spokesman said. “We're actually a little surprised by how much of a response it's getting.”

Hourly pay for part-time jobs in Japan averages just under 1 000 yen ($12.41).

Many of the comments on a Japanese article about the offer noted that the salary was cheap for the probable advertising impact and that there might be better uses for the money, such as raising workers' pay overall.

“If I got this, I couldn't work for being afraid of what the people around me were thinking,” one wrote.

In another of the promotions, anyone born on September 30 this year - the actual date the first Domino's opened in Japan - will receive a free pizza on their birthday until they turn 25. - Reuters

@ cindi, It's a one hour contract, and unless you live in Japan and apply, you will never be in the running. @ Magwinya, I really hope you didn't use your employers time to do this useless calculation. As mentioned before (and in the article which you didn't read properly) It's a ONE HOUR CONTRACT!!

31 030x8=248 240 ; 248 240x30=$7 447 200 a month convert into rands 7447200x6.9= R51 385 680 a month. Now at this rate they protect you against the risk with Domino's as beneficiary should anything happen to you. The insurance cover is 10 times your monthly salary. On the first week you get your first salary, and through excitement you have a heart attack, now the young hero or heroin departs this earth. Who is the real winner?
