A man walks into a talent agents office and says "Boy do I have an act for you!"

I might not get hired but it would be a fun 140 seconds.

Unless I've gone 140 days without food, you're not going to sell me anything from Pizza Hut.
 
2013-03-06 05:26:22 PM  
Gee 140 seconds? I'm not sure if I can finish in under 3 minutes...not sure if I want to finish in 140 seconds...

The "Social Media Manager" at a company as huge as Pizza Hut should be a marketing and customer service expert with a good understanding of technology; not just somebody who's good at Twitter.  I wonder if they'll hire their next manager in the Finance department based on how quickly the candidates can use a calculator.

Three months of TF for anyone willing to show up in character as this guy.  Pics plz:

The real question is, if I market myself in 1 second am I under-qualified?

"eat our pizza. It's the best. Try the buffet. Don't sneeze"
 
2013-03-06 05:45:45 PM  
"If you're reading this Twitter feed, you already want our pizza, so get it already!"
Am I hired?

Eating pizza from any place but Pizza Hut causes CANCER!

You don't want CANCER do you?

Yes, it's an overtly stupid way of weeding out applicants, but I'm okay with this. The alternative is a  covertly stupid way of going about this, which would probably involve a bunch of boring portfolio reviews and 30-minute interviews where 27:40 or more were spent doodling "no way we're hiring you" on your notepad while pretending to listen.

There's no really fair or unstupid way of hiring one person out of more than a handful of qualified applicants for any job, and they'll have hundreds of qualified applicants.

Ever get the feeling that all this corporate, BS sense of urgency and "OMG I MUST BE AMAZING" crap is to see if you'll stand on your hind legs to jump through hoops, and hasn't anything to do with your actual skill sets?

I don't know how much Pizza Hut costs in the mainland but here in Hawaii it is a damn rip off.  We can get 2 larges for 9.99 each at costco and they are pretty damn tasty.

Why's it called Pizza "Hut"?


The last thing I want to think of when I'm eating is aborigines and mosquito tents.

I always assumed it was because their pizza folded up works as a football...and just as tasty.

You sound like you would start doing jazz hands in your routine wearing brown pants, a white shirt and brown suspenders, and then end with "ha - cha - cha - cha!"

Next!

This interview is really about how many ways and how fast you can get through a line of people online saying "I'm so sorry for your experience, where can we send your refund?"

The problem with "social media specialists" at large corporations (or even small ones) is that people who have a marketing background spend a week on Facebook or Pinterest and think "I got this, I'll add this to my resume." The problem is your stereotypical high-level decision maker is about 20 years removed from the generation that actually uses social media and will buy whatever crap the marketing guy is pushing to make himself look better and completely ignore the things they know works.

Social media is really really terrible at creating new customers, but is a good deal to reach out to loyal ones. Your ROI on ad dollars is not the same that you get from internet ads so don't bother with outreach. Use it as a forum, but don't expect earth shattering returns.

So why isn't the job description 140 characters or less?  Sweet  Jesus, there's a megaton of derp in there!

Even worse, though, are the people who don't even have a marketing background and think that they're somehow qualified to work in the field just because they use the medium.  It would be a guy who likes watching TV thinking that this qualifies him to plan and buy broadcast media (and it's a bonus if he owns Mad Men on DVD).

I'm convinced that a 22 year old with a communication or marketing degree and zero job experience would do a better job as "social media manager" than someone from the marketing department with 10 years of experience.

Hell anyone with a college degree awarded in the past 5 years is more qualified than most people who claim to be "experts" in social media. And I'm including idiots at Forbes and Businessweek in that too.

I own one of the cars used in Pizza Hut's first television commercial. Show up for the interview in that car and that should get some attention, especially if you drive it into the building.  http://youtu.be/KdK9j-J4au4

I wonder how many times the word "Crap" can fit in 140 characters...

CrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCra pCr

This many.

Just a random word, nothing specific...

Howzit. Pizza Hut in general usually isn't that worth it to begin with. Supposedly they're better in the North East, but I never bothered to find out. At those prices, might as well go to Boston Pizza. Every pizza I got from them was coming out of the box and was pretty good; granted that was back when they first opened so things may have changed since I moved. To answer your question, Pizza Hut has been running a campaign for a few years for a large with mostly any toppings at $10. Costco is the same price and is probably the same quality here as it is over there; personally I find Costco pizza too bready, but decent.
