Bad Job Ads

I was looking for jobs today on and came accross from very bad advertisements for jobs. Here's a few of them:

This was the first particularily bad ad I found.
It's practically saying "Do you provide good service, do you work in a safe manner? Better change that!" :P
They also fail to list where this new store is opening.

This one is very hard to take seriously, they wrote it in "chat speak" or "sms speak".
Whatever you call it, it looks bad and unprofessional.
It doesn't help that they put the title in capitals or used exclaimation marks excessively.
Also, what the hell is a 'pick packer'?

This one isn't really that bad but I was interested to know what the twist was...

I'm not sure what to say about this one.
It suffers from all caps, from exclaimation points galore and it has an awesome anecdotal pay rate.
"A new guy in his second week made $1200" - and we are supposed to believe that?

And so ends our look at glamourous adverts for today, has anyone else seen similarily poor advertising? If so, let me know in the comments.
