Able to lift 25 pounds and schedule haircuts? for 70K a year? I think I can handle that.

Posted on: January 31st, 2017 by Candy

Rob Loweis in the market for a personal assistant, and the job qualifications are daunting.

Rob posted the job description on a website targeting personal assistants. Among the requirements:

– Never assume anything

– Ensure the CLIENT [Rob] is fed and has coffee throughout the day

– Schedule haircuts every episode for the CLIENT

– Ensure that the CLIENT HAS A DINNER PLAN IF ARRIVING HOME LATER THAN 8 PM in the evening

– Make sure you let Estate staff know if the CLIENT wants a Jacuzzi turned on or a massage ordered for his arrival

– Willing to travel on location as requested and serve as the CLIENT’S body man

– Able to lift up to 25 pounds as required to support THE CLIENT

Unclear what weighs 25 pounds.

Rob’s team says the description doesn’t match any pertaining to employment with him, but adds … “We can confirm coffee is his number one priority in life.”

Our sources insists the gig is with Rob. It pays $70k plus benefits. Takers?

Rob’s reps tell TMZ, ‘This job description does not match any document pertain to employment with Rob, but we can confirm that coffee is his number one priority in life.”  As we reported, this is indeed the job description posted for Rob’s personal assistant.
