Literally a dream job? Man gets paid $2k a month to sleep on the job
(THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - He has the best excuse to sleep on the job. Lee Jia, 27, earns 10,000 yuan (S$2,026) a month just to test the comfort level at hotel rooms. Besides sleeping, he checks out the scent of the rooms, the cleanliness, the brand of toiletries and the type of TV programmes available. Sin Chew Daily quoted Mr Lee, a Chinese national, as saying that his job was more than just sleeping in hotel rooms and that it could get stressful at times. His job, he said, required him to observe well his surroundings. Mr Lee, who loves travelling, said he would then write a review of the hotel and its facilities on his blog. 'You need to be highly focused and articulate to observe every detail in order to produce a comprehensive report,' he said.
