Bar Boss Posts Controversial Job Ad Banning Applicants With ‘BO’ And Bad Teeth Who Play FIFA

Landlord Craig Harker said he is usually “inundated” with sloppy applications.

A bar-restaurant boss posted a brutal job ad – banning applicants with ‘BO’, bad teeth or who spend their spare time playing FIFA.

Landlord Craig Harker, 35, advertised online for chefs, kitchen porters and front-of-house staff at his chain of George Pub & Grill venues across Teeside, in northern England, in the United Kingdom.

He said he is usually “inundated” with sloppy applications, so he put together an unusual list of requirements in the advert.

Craig said he is up for giving people a chance, even if they don’t have experience, but warned applicants “don’t just apply because the Job Center asked you to”.

The job ad for the positions in the towns of Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar added: “Those that attend with that fruity BO odor – it’s a no go.”

It also said that applicants should “give your pits a wash before you come down for an interview, a quick whiff and spray those bad boys.

“First impressions count. That includes brushing those tusks too.

“The key part for any interview is first impressions, don’t have mine as this person clearly needs a wash and have me turning my head because of that naughty breath that stings my cheeks.”

He also asked applicants not to turn up to the interview “after a session or a big night and stinking of that last can of lager you had at 5 am”.

The ad said he doesn’t want applicants with bad teeth and added: “If those [g]nashers are black then stay back, white and you’re alright.

“Especially when front of house greeting our customers as they walk through the doors.”

Craig is also against “dodgy-looking toes” and said staff should be good at chatting to strangers.

“We want lively, bubbly and friendly people for front of house, not people sat at home all day sitting on the latest FIFA and not leaving the house for days on end,” the ad said.

It added: “Go and get some fresh air and interact with real people!

“I don’t care [if] you’ve led a team on Call of Duty or Dungeons and Dragons, what real work experience do you have? If not then we have positions we can train too!”

He assured would-be staff they’ll “love the banter” and said he’s happy to employ vegans – as long as they don’t mind serving “big juicy slabs of meat”.

Harker is no stranger to unusual Facebook posts and in 2019 he posted an advert asking customers ‘Would You Punch Your Ex In The Face For A Steak?’

Threatened with losing his license, he refused to apologize and argued the posts are entertaining for his pub’s over 200,000 Facebook followers.
