Becoming a Weinermobile driver is harder than getting into Harvard

There’s a reason this headline made me laugh…

Excerpts from the NY Post:

“Hotdogger” is an official title for the young men and women who travel the country in giant mobile wieners, spreading the gospel of processed meats (and their employer, Oscar Mayer Foods Corp.). Since 1988, there have been six Wienermobiles consistently on tour, visiting every US state and Canada 12 months a year.

And two hotdoggers — typically one male and one female — are always at the helm.

“It can be easier to get into an Ivy League university than become a hotdogger,” Ed Roland, a senior manager of experiential marketing at Oscar Mayer, told The Post.

He’s not kidding. Applications from soon-to-be-college grads have jumped from 6,000 in 2018 to 7,000 this year — thanks in part, Oscar Mayer reps speculate, to an increase in the Wienermobile’s social-media presence. (YouTube videos of the Wienermobile fleet, posted last summer by Oscar Mayer, have garnered almost 2 million views.)

With just 12 picked each year, that puts the Wienermobile acceptance rate at around 0.17 percent. The acceptance rate for Harvard is 4.6 percent.

Roland says they look for candidates with degrees in marketing, public relations, business or other related fields and anyone with “strong interpersonal skills with people of all ages.” There are numerous interviews and callbacks, and applicants go above and beyond to try to get noticed.

It isn’t exactly a plum gig. The yearlong commitment includes an entry-level salary and a weekly per diem for hotels and meals. (Both the hotdoggers and Oscar Mayer spokespeople declined to share the exact amount.) The schedule demands travel across dozens of states, making around 1,200 stops every year. They get two days off a week and a handful of vacation days for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

Oscars Mayer’s Weinermobile hiring is not corrupt, unlike the college admissions scandal — of very wealthy elites, incl. Hollyweirdos Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, using bribes to get their children into elite universities, with the collusion of university sports coaches, admissions officials, and college entrance exam officials.

Harvard has an acceptance rate of 4.6 percent – although it is disproportionately higher for some (((groups))). Still I think being a hotdogger is a better career move for most people. Is that David the Pig Boy? What’s he doing here? Oh yeah, I think he’s going to Hahvahd

There is a loaded/leafy/liberal town of Harvard MA by the way. If you’re ever over in this neck of the woods, avoid it. You’re not welcome there and there is nothing there anyway

Don’t even think of driving to New York, De Blasio and Magpie Ocasio Cortes will slash the tires and drop You from the Brooklyn Bridge.

To bad they can’t find an image of Pete the Buttplug for a hood ornament.

I don’t think I’d be cut out for the job.

Boss; Hey Frank, get your buns in there and show that wiener all over the state.

It has great campaign potential. “Wiener-eaters for Buttplug”.

I saw the weinermobile at the Buda Texas weinerful weiner dog races.

People who love weiners are the luckiest people in the world.

Clearly– writing “Black Lives Matter!” 100 times amounts to diddley-squat regarding the wienermobile.

I want one!
Sometimes doing a job like this results in lots of opportunities. The experience of driving around the country and meeting people of all stripes can be a life changing experience. For some it’s just a party. Most things are what you make them out to be. If you’re just farting around, well you probably weren’t too smart in the first place. If you leverage the experience then it can enhance your life. Just sayn.

I have a candidate. Not only that, but she’s won prior contests. She would be perfect if they let them give the dogs away for free:
