I just got off the phone with Lousiana Motivational Speaker and Humorist Bruce Wilkinson. (We’re working on a project for Humor Us about his experience with Humor and Hurricanes.
He told me that Burger King had (a month ago or so) a note on their sign looking for workers: $6000 signing bonus.
Down the street, McDonalds has a sign saying, ‘$50 siging Bonus.”
I migh be crazy but I’d go with Burger King. Sure, there might be huge difference that makes the McDonalds’ bonus attractive, but when you just put that $50 sign up you look stupid. For example, they could put up a sign that says, “Signing bonus… inquire inside.”
But if they did that… it wouldn’t be funny. :)
