Butterball has never before hired men for their turkey hotline, but after 32 years they think it may be time.
Butterball has been running a turkey hotline for 32 years and has finally come to the conclusion that maybe a few of their operators should be men. From the Detriot Free Press:
For the first time, Butterball is enlisting the help of men as well as women for its Turkey Talk cooking-advice line during the holidays. Additionally, the turkey seller is seeking the first male talk-line spokesman this year …
But the talk line, which has grown from six operators to about 60 since it launched in 1981, has never hired men before. The company says it wasn’t specifically excluding men, but it usually relied on word-of-mouth to hire its talk line operators and its hires were always women.
Now, it’s taking a more active approach.
By more active approach, it appears that Butterball intends to hire men.
Butterball, based in Garner, N.C., will offer an online application for men age 25 and up to apply to be the spokesman for the line or one of the operators, via its Facebook page
It’s about time Butterball opened jobs up to men, but is the solution essentially to guarantee a job to a man?
