Will You Be the Next Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Driver?

Now it's your turn to carry on the legacy. Will you be the next Oscar Mayer "Hotdogger"?

The hunt is on for the next driver of the iconic Wienermobile. Oscar Mayer is now accepting applications for the best job ever, and YOU can apply.

Here’s the Job Description

If you have ever wished you were an Oscar Mayer wiener, now you can be! Or, er, you can drive one, at least. The folks at Oscar Mayer are looking for a new driver, or “Hotdogger,” to escort the giant wiener across the nation. It’s a pretty high honor considering the Wienermobile has been going cross-country since 1936. According to Oscar Mayer, there are more people who have gone to space than people who have held the title of Hotdogger.

The position isn’t just driving, though. The newest Hotdogger to carry on the legacy will be a spokesperson for Oscar Mayer for one year. This means public appearances, some time on the small screen and radio and newspaper interviews. As a Hotdogger, you’ll also receive a competitive salary on top of the sightseeing bonus.
