Yes, it's another day, and another look at the
This position is to be a grant writer. The job description is what you might expect for a grant writer (make a bunch of crap up and write about it so the company can exist and still pay you so you can barely afford your Top Ramen and your booze, and a cell phone), but it's the "physical demands" of this job that caught my eye:
Physical Demands:So, let me get this straight...in order to meet the physical demands of this job, you have to, basically, exist?
The Grant Writer is required to talk and hear. The employee is often required to sit and use their hands and fingers to handle or feel. The employee is required to stand, walk, reach with arms and hands, climb, balance, twist, lean, move from one location to another and to stoop, kneel, crouch or crawl. Vision abilities required by this job include close and far vision. Ability to, operate a computer keyboard, and lift files and reports. Exposure to glare from a computer.
Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions. Must be able to lift 25 lbs and travel via automobile and/or plane 25%.
How do they expect to fill this position with such stringent demands? Luckily, I meet these requirements, but what about the majority of people who don't? If I wasn't an able bodied human being who breathes oxygen and has a nervous system, I'd be tempted to report this company to the Department of Labor.
And look at their harsh work environment:
Work Environment:Well, well, well. Way to cover your ass there. But I've got your number, and I can see where this is going.
The work environment will usually be in a professional office setting, with possible shared workspace. The noise level is usually quiet to moderate. When traveling the environment will change dependent upon the site visiting.
Don't waste your time applying. Instead, decide which of the physical demands you can't meet (who out there can possibly twist and crawl?), and file your very own discrimination lawsuit. If you need any help finding an attorney, just give me call...I'm in the book!
