Bizarre Job Post Raises Eyebrows

Doctor at a New York eye surgery clinic goes on weird rant on Craigslist

by Lesley Kennedy • Reporter

Seeking work—especially in today’s economic climate—is no laughing matter. But we couldn’t help but giggle at this recent Craigslist job posting for an office manager for a New York City eye surgery clinic.

The folks at Gawker, who spotted the bizarre ad, report that the listing is from Dr. Emil Chynn of Park Avenue LASEK, and although the gig seems to pays well—$50,000 to $80,000—it may not be worth taking.

After spending several paragraphs describing how ill-suited the clinic’s current office manager is for her role, Chynn writes, according to Gawker: “You MUST be LOYAL to your BOSS who is giving you $10,000-$20,000 in BONUS per year and say things to the intern like: ‘I can't believe you took lunch when you know Dr. Chynn hasn't—run out now and get him something to eat, he'll pay you back, and don't let me see you forget this again!’ THAT type of ATTITUDE is EXACTLY what our practice so vitally NEEDS!”

Hmmm . . . maybe we’ll just stick with wearing glasses and contacts a while longer.
