Dr. Phil

Pays Less Than In N' Out Burger

8/25/2006 12:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ found an interesting listing on EntertainmentCareers.net, for a part-time job at the Dr. Phil show. The kicker is what the job entails, and how much he is willing to pay this employee. The ad offers positions available for weekends (Saturday and Sunday), or the graveyard shift (11PM - 7AM).

The job is for a transcriber and requirements to gain employment are: previous experience and typing speed of 60 words per minute. The best part is the starting salary, a whopping $8.00 an hour, or roughly $16,000 dollars a year.

Now we can't help but compare these numbers to those that Dr. Phil just spent on his son's wedding. Let's assume that the good doctor spent $400,000 on the reception (which is pretty low by celebrity standards) and he had 400 people attend. That is $1000 a head. His new employee would have to work over 3 weeks just to sit down at the table! Plus, if this person tried to throw the same kind of fab wedding soiree, they would have to work for 25 YEARS! That means the average 22 year-old applicant would be 47 before they could cover the cost of the wedding.

All interested applicants should contact Todd Klotz at CBS/Paramount.
