It's a dream come true for some lucky Hotdogger!
This. Is. Happening. For the 33rd year, Oscar Mayer is looking for brand ambassadors to take the helm of its famous Wienermobile full-time. The brand is looking for people to "meat" and greet the adoring public, traveling the "Hot Dog Highways" across America all while putting a better wiener "in every hand" (Oscar Mayer's words, not mine).
If it has always been your dream to drive the big dog, the company is hiring recent college graduates and the deadline to apply is January 31. Wheel time would begin in June and last for one year.
"We need outgoing, creative, friendly, enthusiastic, graduating college seniors who have an appetite for adventure and are willing to see the country through the windshield of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. Applicants should have a BA or BS, preferably in public relations, journalism, communications, advertising, or marketing, though applicants are not limited to these degrees," says the company.
The first Wienermobile hit the road in 1936, manned by a driver with an appetite for adventure. It has been part of the company’s advertising ever since. Today, the company has as many as six Wienermobiles that you can "ketchup" with on the road at any time throughout the nation. You can follow the wieners on wheels on Oscar Mayer's Instagram (@oscarmayer) to keep up with their whereabouts.
No word on if you have to have mad hops to be a Hotdogger, but almost every single picture seems to imply it, so get your jump on. Courtesy of Oscar Mayer.
Last year, there were 7,000 applications for just 12 Hotdogger positions.
"It was easier to get into an Ivy League university [in 2019] than to get into the Oscar Mayer brand’s 32nd class of Hotdoggers," Oscar Mayer says.

Fun Wienermobile facts:
