An East Coast landscaping company’s job posting has gone viral after it urged people not to apply if they "oversleep, have court often or do not have a babysitter every day."

Elmsdale Landscaping Ltd. in Nova Scotia posted an ad on Facebook in an effort to hire 10 new employees for the upcoming summer season.

"We find that people interview really well but when it actually comes to working, people don’t really stay," Laura Coupar, vice-president of Elmsdale told CTV Atlantic. Coupar said that the company sends out small crews of three to four people to different jobs and work can be easily affected when one person does not show up to work.

"Please do not apply if you oversleep, have court often, do not have a babysitter everyday, have to get rides to work later than our work day begins," the ad states. The ad also urges that applicants must be "able to talk and work at the same time” and “remember to come back to work after lunch."

According to Tracy Isenor, of Nova Scotia Works, an employment services centre, said she is not surprised that the posting has done well.

“I think it adds a bit of humour to that employer’s recruitment process which is good,” she said. “Hopefully they get the right candidates.”

The job posting, which you can check out below, has had nearly 2,000 shares since it was posted last week.
