Swadley’s is hiring a Staff Accountant…

You may want to consult with a lawyer before applying.

Are you proficient at Excel, handy with a calculator, and have no problem tacking exorbitant management and consulting fees onto invoices?

Well, have we got an opportunity for you! 

Swadley’s BBQ – Oklahoma’s “World Famous” smoker of average BBQ meats that just happens to be under criminal investigation for defrauding Oklahoma taxpayers – is looking for a Staff Accountant to help smoke the books.  

Earlier this week, a couple of Moles emailed us this slow-roasted job posting on Indeed.

Here’s the job description:

Yep, Swadley’s isn’t in the restaurant business. They’re in the people business, especially if those people are invoicing the state for overpriced restaurant equipment with excessive management and consulting fees tacked on top.

On that note, according to a "Day in the Life of our Staff Accountant,” having experience with vendor invoices – like, you know, contractors who are hand-picked by Brent Swadley to do contract work for the state – is a big part of the job…

That’s weird. You’d think a “Day in the Life of Swadley’s Staff Accountant” would go something like this… 

I read the news today, oh boy.
About a BBQ man who ripped off the state.

Or maybe

Woke up. Fell out of bed. 
Wrote a shady purchase order on company letterhead.

For what it’s worth, I actually know an Ogle Mole who may have worked in Swadley’s Accounting Department. I asked them if they had any pointers or advice for prospective employees. They said…

“Have upfront knowledge about the cult-like managers.” 

Yep, I guess one thing the job description doesn't mention is that all Swadley's employees are expected to worship the alter of Brent Swadely, and – apparently – look the other way when he bills that state for a $125,000 BBQ smoker.

Anyway, we’d like to wish all job applicants the best of luck. We hope the interview process goes well, and at the very least, you get some free BBQ out of the deal. 

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
