Time Out New York accidentally posted a painfully honest job advert for a photo editor, describing all of the unbearable working conditions that come with the role — and the Internet is going crazy.

The hilarious post paints a picture of current employee “Melissa Sinclair’s” nightmarish situation as she’s forced to take on copious amounts of extra work to meet deadlines due to a lack of freelancers.

Sinclair is apparently “swamped and overwhelmed” as she cannot find “good enough candidates” to fill the available freelance positions.

The ad goes on to suggest that the company is worried Sinclair will get “burnt out or want to leave,” and notes that the firm has a “very busy” magazine schedule coming up next month.

The advert, which appears to have been posted by Time out New York by mistake, was posted to job site Indeed.

Brooklyn-based journalist Brandy Zadrozny‏ Tweeted a screen grab of the ad, which sparked a slew of comments from users who noted that Sinclair was underpaid and overworked, prompting an outpouring of tweets with the hashtag #GiveMelissaARaise.

The posting has since been taken down.
