“Our competition is open to everyone, of any age or social class,” said Alessandra Aloisi, human resources manager at Gruppo BSE, which controls three OnePrice supermarkets in the Italian capital.
“Some participants are even asking if they can pass the prize, that is the job, on to a relative or friend,” she said.
For a chance to win the position of a part-time shelf-stacker or cashier, customers need only keep their receipts after spending a minimum of 30 euro. The prize in question is a part time contract for 24 hours a week with a monthly salary of 1,100 euro (US$1400).
“It’s a way of getting to know the person. No one says that what begins as a temporary contract can’t be turned into a permanent one for any of our winners,” Aloisi told Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera.
