Pop quiz, hotshot: What job combines a Challenger Hellcat, wrestling champ Bill Goldberg, and a $150,000 paycheck? If you answered with something along the lines of Vince McMahon’s assistant or slightly-above-board import/export professional, we totally understand.
In reality, that’s the job description for Chief Donut Maker at Dodge. Yep – you read that correctly.
According to the company, this PR stunt will see a Chief Donut Maker become an ambassador for the Dodge brand, wheeling to auto events around the country in a Hellcat. Despite the pay, this isn’t even a full-time gig; Dodge describes it as a side hustle in which you don’t have to quit your day job.
Applications kick off today and run until the end of February. If you’re bent on throwing your hat in the ring, go ahead and film a short sub-two-minute clip demonstrating why you’re a perfect gearhead for the job. Goldberg and his team of Dodge cohorts will select 10 finalists from the lot, a group who will then be tossed into the deep end of the competition, which includes racing Dodge hotshoes on a closed track among other challenges.
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said they’re looking for a car nut who embodies the “crazy can-do America Muscle spirit and carry the torch of the single most engaged group of enthusiasts the automotive industry has to offer,” before going on to crow that the Challenger was the number one muscle car in the country last year. This, of course, references the fact in which the Challenger bested the Mustang in total sales while also crushing the Camaro like beetles under its feet. There is a 100 percent chance you will be seeing this boast throughout the entirety of 2022, by the way.
Despite the sky-high salary for what’s essentially a part-time job, this is a good deal for Dodge. Chances are everything will be filmed and packaged for either Netflix or YouTube, which will provide promotion ad nauseam until the end of time (or at least until Dodge begins rolling out its EV lineup in 2024). Specifically, the series of eliminations will be aired in a reality-like show with the final episode revealing Dodge’s new Chief Donut Maker sometime before the summer rolls around.
