Shanghai Company Looking to Hire ‘Professional Sleepers’

While you’d probably get sacked if you get caught sleeping on the job, this new position offered by a Shanghai dietary company will not only hire you, but even pay you to sleep.

A dietary supplement company from Shanghai is looking to hire employees that will take the position of “professional sleepers.”

According to Shanghaiist, the company will pay their workers more than $14,000 to take their products and go to sleep. After which, they need to make a report about their experience.

There is no other requirement for this job; you just have to love sleep. The only hard part is – if it is at all hard – workers need to sleep in varying schedules for people who have graveyard shifts.

This might be the start of a new in-demand job in China as more people are growing more cautious about their health. But given the nature of the job, it’s safe to assume that number of hopeful applicants will be massive.

For those who think that being a professional sleeper is a joke, a career adviser noted that you can earn as much as $300,000 a year in this profession in America.

So, what do you say? Are you ready to send your application?
