The first problem I see with this ad is several things. No HR? For 11 pubs, plus all the production and sales people, plus their 2 farms? Must be closing in on 300 people. How many laws are they violating that they are just not aware of? HR people are there to keep you from getting sued, and to allow other staff to focus on their jobs.

Secondly, the problem with being the only IT guy for places that are open until 1am is the fact that you are always on call. Don't plan on making plans for the rest of your career.

Thirdly, IT guys are rarely the guys you want sending out e-blasts. Isn't that what a marketing/sales dept is for.

What if you act totally professional, show up in a suit and tie, and use every single one of their banned words?

I'd expect this ad from Stone. It reads like one of their beer labels.

Looks like they want cheap help. You get what you pay for. Especially with IT people.

Rogue is more about brand image than making good beer. EVERYTHING Rogue does is designed to build this image. Hell, even their General Counsel is the "Attorney General of Rogue Nation," like Rogue is its own sovereign nation or something. Most of the crap in the help wanted ad is written the way it is to reflect how Rogue wants to portray itself. Rogue sells an image along with its overpriced mediocre craft beer.

I bet they're popular with the Ed Hardy crowd....

You would be the most professional person at the company?

As ridiculous as it is, I think it's a hilarious posting. I think it cuts through the bs. Doesn't sound like they're looking for a seasoned professional here. Probably just want some high motor new grad (or maybe not even) with some tech skills who would think it cool to work at/with a brewery to learn and grow on the job.

Wildly far from my reality now, but not so much if I was 23.

I guess that's who Brewdog took notes from for their marketing - written like a spoiled 13 year old.
