Builder Posts Job Advert Asking For 'No Snowflakes' After Losing 10 Workers In A Year

A building boss has shared an unusual job advert stating that he wants ‘no snowflakes’ working with him after rinsing through 10 employees in a year.

Adam Weedon, who runs Ad-A-Brick Building Services in Chatham, Kent, says that he’s sick of recruiting ‘workshy’ employees who ‘love their phone and want their mummy to pamper them’.

So, in his latest job advertisement, he stated that no ‘snowflakes’ need apply, because the work is hard.

The tongue-in-cheek advert – posted on social media on 14 December – reads: "JOB ADVERT FOR JANUARY ONWARDS.

"Full-time labouring position, pay dependent on experience, hard work so no snowflakes need apply

"Driving licence preferred or close to Walderslade."

The 40-year-old was driven to distraction by the workers that he’s had in recent times, which is what prompted him to release the new advert.

Over the past 12 months, he claims to have had no less than 10 employees, all under the age of 30, who have walked off the job because it’s ‘too hard’.

Perhaps there are some other factors in play here, just as a piece of wild speculation.

The boss explained: "I've been looking for a building labourer and wrote the 'no snowflake' advert as everyone nowadays wants a job but doesn't want to work for the money.

"I've had 10 people over the course of a year. They all love their phones too much and find the work, such as pushing a wheelbarrow, laying slabs and doing drives and pathways, too hard.

"I wrote the ad as they're [the people previously hired] are not fitting the bill - they're workshy, on their phone and want their mummy to pamper them.

"They leave, they don't turn up the next day because it's too hard.”

After another unsuccessful appointment, he says he was driven to distraction and reached the end of his tether, which is when he posted the advert on the business social media account.

Adam continued: "The decision to write the ad had been bubbling up for a while. I've got mates who own their own companies, and they all say the same thing [about workers].

"It's getting pretty tiring. I'm still looking for someone, I'll give them a try and see where it goes from there.

"The answer for the time being is working on my own. I might as well jump in and out the digger and get the job done myself."

There you have it, if you’re not a ‘snowflake’ and don’t mind working for a boss like Adam, this might be the job opportunity you’ve been searching for.
