Want to work for Rihanna? Ehh, you might want to reconsider. The ‘BBHMM’ singer posted a snapshot of her company’s employee handbook on Instagram and it’s pretty insane. Seriously, no sick days! This is a joke, right?
Whoa. Working for Rihanna‘s, 27, company is no joke! The singer-turned-fashion designer posted photos of her Rihanna Fenty Corp. employee handbook on Instagram on Sept. 24, and let’s just say she does not sound like a fun boss. Three-minute long bathroom breaks? Tell us you’re kidding Riri!
Thankfully, yes she is. The is in fact a mock version that was posted to social media as a joke— and a hilarious one at that! The pics, simply tagged “#FENTYCORP,” highlighted a number of ridiculous demands, that remind us of something out of The Devil Wears Prada — only worse. For starters, Rihanna advises workers that “each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.” Her rules are also just as tough when it comes to sick days. She writes: “We will no longer accept a doctor’s note as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.” Dayum!
Even lunch breaks are an issue with the “Diamonds” hitmaker, as she insists that they be determined by body size, with “fat people” given just five minutes, because “that’s all the time needed to drink a Slim Fast.” Ouch! A little harsh, no Riri?
Meanwhile, fashion appears to be the one area that’s not affected by the boss lady’s insane power trip — well, sort of. While it appears that employees are allowed to wear just about anything they want to the office, including say a nipple piercing like the singer herself, they are advised to come to work dressed according to their salary, so as not to affect their chances of getting a raise. Except no matter what they wear, no employee will ever get a raise. Good one, Rihanna. Is it bad that we still kind of want to work for her?
