A Lagos-based company has come under fire on Twitter over the responsibilities expected of those applying for the position of its operations manager.
In a now-viral advert of the job opportunity, the fashion company stated that the successful applicant would be entitled to a salary between N80,000 and N100,000.
The company also disclosed that the operations manager would work from 8:30 am to 7 pm between Monday to Friday.
It added that the qualified applicant would work from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday.

According to the company, interested applicants must have experience in fashion retail.
In its job description, the company explained that the operations manager is expected to discharge about 31 responsibilities on weekly basis.
The responsibilities include weekly conduct of staff meetings; preparing daily reports, coordinating daily activities and supervising all employees; preparing staff salary schedule; conducting research, and editing articles for publication.
The job offer has, however, sparked criticism on the microblogging platform with many Nigerian users calling out the fashion company.
“Apparently, the employee will have no life. He/she will be constantly exhausted & unhappy leading to low productivity. Queries upon queries will be served. The employee becomes depressed & soon hates his/her job. There should always be a work-life balance,” a user wrote.
“This one no be job na modern day slavery,” another user wrote.
A recent study by the World Health Organization (WHO) showed that long working hours are killing hundreds of thousands of people around the world every year.
Here’s what others have to say:
Believe me, you'll breakdown. Having work as an operations manager for a logistics company with a demanding boss, it's not fvcking easy. Maybe if you have an assistant ooo but just you, you go bend walahi

I know its modern day slavery, but if I can get a job that pays 100k and I work on Saturdays. I will still take it. After all, I am Collecting less than 60k in my current workplace and close from work 7pm on Saturdays sometimes.

Firstly, the working hours is very ridiculous and secondly, the job of an accountant, admin, HR, social media manager, sales manager, PR all combined into one for just 100k monthly…. This is reality of so many youths in Nigeria.

I worked for two weeks and nobody told me to JAPA. Toxic boss plus toxic job roles is equal to suicide. This is no job

All that for 100k… Worked in a fashion house before, apart from the salary schedule, new letter article part, did all . Grew white hair in few months. Not thus is a combo of admin, account and production management. For 100k? Una no try
