Oscar Mayer Is Hiring Hot Dog Lovers to Travel the U.S. in the Famous Wienermobile (Video)
Those in search of an opportunity to travel from coast to coast across the U.S. can now do so in an iconic vehicle with Oscar Mayer.
The company is looking for drivers for its Wienermobile, which has been making trips across the country since it was first created back in 1936.
The drivers, who will be known as “Hotdoggers,” will be invited to spend one year traveling the country while taking part in radio and television appearances, newspaper interviews, and visits to grocery stores, military events, and charity functions as the brand’s new goodwill ambassadors.
Drivers chosen for the position will create their own “traveling public relations firm” and will be responsible for pitching media outlets themselves in addition to meeting and greeting locals from across the nation.
Applicants will need to have a B.A. or a B.S. to apply. Degrees in public relations, journalism, communications, advertising, and marketing are preferred. That being said, participants with other degrees are invited to apply as long as they are adventurous, friendly, and show enthusiasm for the role. Bilingual candidates will also have an upper hand.
Oscar Mayer is currently accepting applications through Jan. 31. The job will start in June and including a competitive salary, expense coverage, and additional perks such as apparel.
Not to mention, drivers will be spotted in the 27-foot-long Wienermobiles.
The vehicle, which first appeared during the Great Depression, was driven around parades, grocery store openings, and hospitals before being taken off the road for nine years. After making a return appearance in the 1980s for a 50th birthday celebration, it was greeted by huge crowds and cards from fans far and wide requesting to see the famed car.
Six of these vehicles are known to tour the U.S. at any given time. Some versions are now on display in museums; you can see the 1952 model at Michigan’s Henry Ford Museum.
