This HR recruitment joke is pretty funny:
“One day while walking down the street a highly successful Resources Director was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul
arrived up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter
Welcome to Heaven, said St. Peter. Before you get settled in though, it
seems we have a problem. You see strangely enough, we've never once had
a Human Resources Director make it this far and we're not really sure what
to do with you.
No problem, just let me in, said the woman.
Well, I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let
you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever
one you want to spend an eternity in.
Actually, I think I've made up my mind, I prefer to stay in Heaven, said
Sorry, we have rules... And with that St. Peter put the executive in an
elevator and it went down-down-down to hell.
The doors opened and she found herself stepping out onto the putting
green of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club and
standing in front of her were all her friends - fellow executives that she
had worked with and they were well dressed in evening gowns and cheering for
They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times.
They played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the country
club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner.
She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy (kinda cute) and
she had a great time telling jokes and dancing. She was having such a good
time that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody shook her
hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator. The elevator went
up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly Gates and found St. Peter waiting
Now it's time to spend a day in heaven, he said. So she spent the next
24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She
had a great time and before she knew it her 24 hours were up and St Peter
came and got her.
So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven. Now You
must choose your eternity. The woman paused for a second and then
Well, I never thought I'd say this, I mean, Heaven has been really great
and all, but I think I had a better time in Hell.
So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went
down-down-down back to Hell.
When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a
desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were
dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks.
The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her.
I don't understand, stammered the woman, yesterday I was here and there was
a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we danced and had a
Now all there is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable.
The Devil looked at her and smiled,
"Yesterday we were recruiting you, today you're staff..."
