This is one sweet offer.
A Canadian company is looking to pay people to try their candy and rate it. And the best part is, the job is remote.
The Candy Funhouse is an online candy store that is seeking full-time and part-time workers willing to try out, and honestly review, their candies and chocolates in a position they call a “candyologist.”
“Candidates should have enthusiasm and eagerness to try confectionery products. We are looking for honest and objective opinions on the products that will be taste tested,” the listing says.
“Candidates will be responsible for tasting and reviewing from the 3000 products we currently carry.”
The role is primarily going to be selecting candy for the company’s first ever Candy Funhouse brand line. The candyologists will help select 10 new and original candy creations by narrowing their selections from hundreds of possible options, according to the company.
If eating candy for a living seems too good to be true, the price is even better. The part-time position is 15 hours a week at $30 an hour and the full-time spot is 40 hours at the same rate.
No experience is required and all applications have to be in by February 15 – the day after Valentine’s Day.
