'Join Us to Literally Sleep': This Job Wants to Pay You to Nap
A new job opening at Casper includes napping and more napping.
Casper, an e-commerce mattress startup, is looking for someone to sleep and tell.
The company's "Casper Sleepers" will be asked to sleep "on social and anywhere else people are looking."
"Casper will select and hire three Sleepers as part-time employees. And, while the Casper Sleepers are part-time positions over the course of one month, there is the potential to continue working with the brand," the company told Entrepreneur in a statement.
Even though it's part-time, it has a pretty enviable job description:
- Sleep in our stores, and in unexpected settings out in the world
- On the rare occasion you're not sleeping, share your experience with others by creating TikTok-style content to be posted across Casper social media channels
- Demonstrate your ability to sleep
You can also demonstrate your willingness to take on the job via a TikTok video under the hashtag "Casper Sleepers" and tag the company's TikTok. At press time, the hashtag had 15 videos and over 22,000 views. (Ten of the videos were the company's.)
"When you ask the universe for signs, and the universe gives you signs," one user joked about the job description in a video while snuggled up in a blanket. "Do you see what I am doing right now?" she added.
Casper is in on the fun, too. One other of their videos jokes "References? My sleep demons," in the caption.
