Dominos Japan paying $31,000 per hour

3 Nov

Dominos Pizza is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and their 25th anniversary in Japan.

So to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Dominos Japan is running a unique gimmick.
Next week (2010 November 10th), they will begin accepting applications for a temporary position that pays 250万円 (¥2,500,000 (about US$31,000)) for an hour’s work one day in December (2010).

Domino's Pizza Japan is offering a position that pays ¥2,500,000 (US$31,000) per hour.

The position will be offered to only one person.
The only requirements to be eligible are that applicants be legally allowed to work in Japan and must be at least eighteen years old.

Dominos Japan will begin accepting applications beginning on 2010 November 10 and this position is for one hour only one day in December.
The salary for that one hour will be 250万円 (¥2,500,000 (about US$31,000).

On a different note, today is a holiday in Japan. It’s 「文化の日」 (“Culture Day”) today.

      >Hai sir

      No need to call me “sir”. 😉

      >…send my parents at macca for hazz….i also need the job to complete my education properly.

      This post seems to attract this type of comment. I’ve replied to each of the comments like yours with similar answers.
      But once more…just because you have things that you’d like to spend the $31,000 on doesn’t make you eligible for this position.

      Just being realistic with you.

      >the badluck is im not in japan n don’t know japanese language.

      And in addition to that, the time frame to apply for this position has already ended!
      Tomorrow (24 November) Dominos Japan will be notifying the candidate that they chose. And the filming will begin for the TV commercial which will air (in Japan) sometime next month.

      >i wish i could be that person…

      Sorry.

    Just as I suspected (and I mentioned in this comment) this position is an advertising gimmick.

    They’re looking to hire someone to do TV and newspaper promotions. They want someone with character and charisma.

    Applications are being accepted now until next Wednesday (2010 Nov 17).
    Applications must be submitted via postal mail and must include a standard Japanese resume (which is hand-written (not typed) in Japanese on a Japanese “resume form”) and must be mailed by November 17th.

    Potential applicants will be chosen and notified by November 24th and that person must have an interview with four famous Japanese comedians.
    So they’re definitely looking for someone entertaining and probably funny (to a Japanese sense of humor).

      Are you in Japan? If not, and if you can’t speak Japanese, you won’t be accepted for this position.

      As I mentioned a few times above…as I have no connection whatsoever with Dominos Pizza, I am unable to offer anyone a job.

      And, if I may be frank, unless you’re at least 18 years old, in Japan now, have a visa that allows you to work in Japan legally, and can speak and read the Japanese language…you wouldn’t have much chance of being hired by Domino’s Pizza Japan anyways.

    Interesting post.

    Not sure what seems to have confused every other poster… there is no mention in there that YOU are affiliated with dominoes Pizza…

    Come to think of it, if you don’t mind me asking, what do you do for work (im sure its mentioned in a much older blog post somewhere)?

    Interestingly enough, are you planning to apply for this Position, if I lived in Japan I would undoubtedly apply for this position, though saying that, I can understand its probably unlikely that a non-Japanese would be win the competition.

      >Interesting post.

      Thanks. Please feel free to comment on my blog often.

      >Not sure what seems to have confused every other poster… there is no mention in there that YOU are affiliated with dominoes Pizza…

      Yes, I know. I wasn’t expecting that.
      Not only comments on this post, but I also starting getting similar e-mails requesting employment at “my organization”.
      It was quite a surprise.

      >what do you do for work

      A “salaryman” job with a Japanese company. I don’t like to put personal info online so I don’t mention where I live, work or my family’s name.
      You understand, I’m sure.

      >are you planning to apply for this Position

      As I mentioned in this comment, I haven’t decided yet.

      >unlikely that a non-Japanese would be win the competition.

      I think the only reason that the odds are a Japanese person will be selected is because the vast majority of applicants will surely be Japanese people.

      You don’t really need a college degree to work at Domino’s.
      But to work at Domino’s in Japan, you would need to be able to understand the Japanese language, have a proper work visa, and be in Japan.

      >can u offer one (job)

      No. Sorry. This is not the Domino’s Pizza website.

      I’m thinking that for that much money for only an hour’s work they probably don’t expect the person to make pizza but, I’m thinking, they’re probably looking for someone to be in a TV commercial.
      I think it’s an advertising gimmick.
      So, I’m not sure yet if I want to apply. I don’t really want to be on TV. But the money is attractive.

      The point’s probably moot anyways…with the number of people that are sure to apply, the chance of being selected must be like winning a lottery draw.

      Sorry if my post was unclear…Dominos Pizza is not “my organization”. I have no affiliation with them…so I wouldn’t be able to offer you a job.
