Slippers are one of life's little pleasures. They're the comfiest form of footwear around. There's few things more satisfying than kicking off your outdoor shoes at the end of a long day at the office and slipping your tootsies into something more comfortable.
And now, for hardcore slipper enthusiasts, a dream job has just emerged: a slipper tester.One woman, however, got free testers for her product in the form of wild bears:
The footwear company Bedroom Athletics is recruiting a slipper tester who naturally spends a lot of time at home to try out their new products, and it's handsomely compensated too. The lucky tester will be paid $431.69 (£333.33) a month for just 12 hours of work.
In order to meet the requirements of the role, the tester will have to wear the slippers for a minimum of 12 hours over a 24-hour period once a month.
The contract lasts for 12 months and the chosen candidate will be given 12 pairs of free slippers - meaning that there's the potential to earn around $5,000 (£4,000).
Bedroom Athletics advertised for the slipper tester online writing: "Do you love a new pair of fluffy slippers? Do you spend a lot of time at home?
"Would you like to be paid for giving us some feedback on our new Autumn/Winter range?
"If you've answered yes to any of the above, then you're in luck! We're currently recruiting for the newly created role of 'Slipper tester'."
Howard Wetter, Director of www.bedroomathletics.com, said: "Being paid to do nothing but wear slippers all day might seem like a fairly trivial job, but it's extremely important to us here that our products are of optimum comfort for those choosing to order from our website."
"We therefore believe that welcoming an official brand tester to our team will be invaluable in gaining insight and feedback for the continual improvement of our slippers," Wetter continued.
"Members of the public who often get cold feet would be perfect candidates, especially as we head into the colder months, as we want to make sure we’re keeping all our customers toes cosy during winter."
Applications for the job are being accepted until November 18.
