  3. At that pay rate, I hope they don't expect you to work more than three or four days of the six they publish. Wow.

    15,000 is less than minimum wage...figuring 40-hour work weeks.

    I wonder how many applicants they'll get.

    I calculate it to be $7.21 an hour. Pennsylvania's minimum wage is $7.25.

    For this you get to take your own photos.

    Work at Burger King instead, since they might pay you a buck above minimum wage to deal with upset soccer moms?
