Why do you think they have a "great working environment"?
What job are you looking for?
Are you happy to work for a tobacco company?

Re: Natural American Spirit company

Why do you think they have a "great working environment"?

In comparison to the typical Swiss company,people there are always happy and smiling........its just a feel of regular North American office and since I am Canadian,its natural that I like it.......also,someone brings a cute little dog to the office during the day

What job are you looking for?

Sales,marketing,international business as I am multilingual,MBA,finance degree,working for financial sales job for a long time. Very interested to be in the structured corporate environment and like the team approach as well.Miss it here!

Are you happy to work for a tobacco company?

I don't smoke,but tobacco is a natural organic product,so why not?

If you know all that - why do you ask??

And why do you think having a "small little cute dog" in the office makes it a great environment?

Fair enough if you want to work for a tabacco company, but enough of the misty-eyed bullshit, eh?

Oh, so it's less carcinogenic than unnatural, non-organic tobacco? How wonderful.

Re: Natural American Spirit company

Seems like a great place for a dog to get their free nicotine fix.

Go right ahead and wave goodbye to any hopes of curing the world of destructive addictions.

Jeez, who would work for a friggin death cancer company and be able to go to work every day, and be happy? Same with weapons companies, happy in the knowledge your product is killing millions but your raking in the moolah... or playing with the office poodle. Some people have no moral compass when it comes to small cuddly animals

Re: Natural American Spirit company

I went for a job in a cigarette factory once.

The interviewer asked, "Have you worked in a lab before?"

"Yes", I replied

"So. Can you tell me what nitrates are?", he asked

I said, "Time and a half, I hope"

No, it's not, it's chemically altered morphine.

Which is just refined opium, which is a natural organic product. So it must be good, right

Anyway, the fact is that Heroin is an astonishingly effective drug, with very little in the way of side effects if used correctly.
