Domino's Pizza Japan To Pay $31,000 For One Hour Of Work

Posted: Updated:

Domino's Pizza Japan, Inc. is offering a part-time job to one lucky applicant this December. The pay? A cool 2.5 million yen, or roughly $31,000 -- for just one hour's worth of work.

According to the Associated Press, the Tokyo-based gig requires neither experience nor education, though applicants must be over 18. The job is said to be part of an ongoing campaign to commemorate the company's 25th anniversary in Japan. A second promotion offers a free pizza to anyone born on Sept. 30, the company's actual anniversary, on their birthday until the year they turn 25.

Though hourly pay for most part-time work in Japan averages at about 1,000 yen (or $12.41), a company spokesman told Reuters, "We're actually a little surprised by how much of a response it's getting."
