Leaving aside the obvious observation that only considering applicants from one country is illegal discrimination, one cannot help but wonder what kind of German customer service goes on in Glendowie and why a friendly and confident appearance is a key strength.

Hey! I saw this ad (minus the discrimination line), and I actually want(ed) to work there. I saw it on SEEK 4 days ago, come to find out, it's already expired. Do you happen to know anything about Vision Entertainment, because I'm trying to find them, and I can't find anything more specific than that it's in Glendowie. I'd appreciate anything you know to find them, even though I'm not a German...
