If you’re having a harsh hump day, have you considered quitting everything and becoming possibly the best paid flight attendant in the universe? Because that job is currently on offer by Netflix.

No, this is not a show pitch, this is a very real offer to become the streaming giant’s flight attendant aboard one of its private jets, according to a job posting on the Netflix website. The job is based in San Jose, California, and there’s a slew of responsibilities for applicants to consider before starting the process.

The listing notes that applicants “are expected to embrace our culture, which places a strong emphasis on operating with Freedom and Responsibility, with independence and a lot of self-motivation.” The listing literally says “self-motivation” twice, suggesting this is the most important aspect of the entire job.

Is it just me, or does this read like, “So, basically we need you to handle everything and you will get limited support to ensure that every single thing goes perfectly every single time this plane leaves the tarmac, got it?”

The average salary for flight attendants is anywhere from $37,000 to $81,000, according to CareerExplorer. While Netflix does say that the salary would be anywhere from $60,000 to $385,000, it sounds like the right applicant should also be self-motivated to demand the highest possible payday for a job where you’re seemingly on your own.

Personally, I couldn’t think of anything worse than catering to a bunch of suits on a private jet, probably 365 days a year, but what an incredible opportunity for people either starting out in their career or looking to land somewhere well paid after years of working for traditional airlines.

I doubt you’d have to deal with the kind of craziness we’ve seen on commercial flights in the last year alone, like that guy who let his butt out on a Delta flight to New York in January 2022. (RELATED: Passenger Who Landed Plane In Flip Flops Describes Fighting Nose Dive)

Then again, you might end up flying with some crazy celebrities. Having seen what some of the leading actors get up to while they’re on solid ground, I don’t think I could handle the same shenanigans at cruising altitude!
