Business is booming at the Ark Encounter, one of the glorious projects of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. Hambo just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Experience a Gospel-Driven Career with Ark Encounter.
What a headline! Who wouldn’t want a career like that? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Did you know our 1,500-seat restaurant, Emzara’s Buffet, at the Ark Encounter is one of the largest in the United States? During our busiest times, our buffet offers thousands of guests both lunch and dinner options. It takes many hands to keep this extremely high-quality restaurant running and producing fresh, delicious food. And, if you love cooking, you could join the team!
Ooooooooooooh! Then he says:
We’re adding seven more line cooks to our full-time Ark Encounter culinary services team. These jobs come with benefits, competitive wages, and 401k benefits (and, of course, free admission [Gasp!] to both the Ark and Creation Museum).
Wowie — free admission! What a great fringe benefit! After that he tells us:
Our Culinary Services team is also hiring [big list,
including]: Dining room attendants, Register operators, Cooks, Dishwashers, Bussers, Salad and dessert prep, Food runners, Wait staff.
Something in that list must meet your aptitudes, dear reader. And the good news continues:
With a job at the Ark Encounter, you’ll have a gospel-driven career. The Ark isn’t just an incredible attraction that attracts thousands daily. [What else is it?] It’s an attraction that impacts people for eternity [Gasp!] by presenting the message of the gospel and boldly provides answers to the skeptical questions of our day. And, by joining our team, you get to be a part of what we’re doing!
Irresistible, isn’t it? Let’s read on:
You also get to work with like-minded believers. Many of our employees find this refreshing and encouraging, and they value the friendships formed. I may be biased [Hee hee!], but I think we have a great team of people and that you’ll love working here. … Apply today at AnswersinGenesis.org/jobs. [Link omitted.]
There’s a bunch more jobs at that link. We were intrigued by Groundskeeper , so we went there to take a look. Among other duties, that person: “Keeps parking lot, walks and driveway clear of debris and litter.” And like all of Hambo’s jobs, these items are needed for possible employment:
• Completion of on-line application
• Salary requirements
• Salvation testimony
• Creation belief statement
• Confirmation of agreement with the AiG Statement of Faith
That last item is is amazing. If you haven’t seen it yet, you gotta take a look: Statement of Faith.
We know you’re interested, but you’d better hurry. Opportunities like this are rare, and these jobs won’t be available much longer!
