No, not some lonely old man looking for tail. I suppose it's more fun to make up details, but for those who can read:
We are a private family of 4 living in Switzerland, we have a private chalet that we only use on the weekends and swiss school holidays.Typically we would arrive most weekends on a friday night, and leave Sunday evening. We would expect you to help with regular household chores, cooking, cleaning, occasional child minding (ages 6 and 9) , ski teaching, and other helpful activities ensuring a stress free weekend. In return you get a whole week to do what you like. (Ski).

I'm pretty sure this offer has been debated about before, and the general feeling was that, yes, this guy is a dick. But if you don't mind being someone's bitch for 2 day's a week, I guess it would be alright

General feeling of people who met him, or of internet whiners who form opinions in the absence of actual experience? As for being someone's bitch, isn't that what all service type employment is?
I've seen this in previous seasons too, and read threads about it, but don't recall any complaints from someone who actually did it, just a lot of nose wrinkling by people who expect privilege without effort.I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. -אלוהים אדירים

My guesses on the duties:
Friday prep & night meal and look after the kids while the folks go party - say 7hrs
Saturday start at 5am for breaky and prepare lunch meal/snacks, then nanny service for kids. Return in time to make evening meal. Clean-up and Nanny service to 11pm. 18hrs
Repeat for Sunday. Clean up place and get ready for next weekend.
Add on holidays.
edit to add: tack on snow shovelling, chalet maintenance and such. I'd say at least another 10hrs/week min.
At least 50hrs/week of work, probably more, per person. Room and board and ski pass only? No cash allowance?
Pretty menial 'salary' compensation for said duties to me.

Calling someone a dick based on suspicion is just silly. If it was from someone who did it, one of the two previous seasons he's offered the position, I would be singing another tune, but so far all I've heard is bullshit from the ignorant.I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. -אלוהים אדירים

I didn't mean to call him a dick, its just that I have seen that ad before, more than once... and it does seem like a sweet gig, to me at least... I cook anyways, so cooking for a few extra wouldn't be a big deal... watching school aged kids isn't hard unless they are demons, it just sounds like it would be ridiculously easy to fill that spot, like post an ad for a few days, and have more applicants than you know what to do with..
He could be a great guy, and it could be an awesome job for all I know.

If it is such a great deal than he wouldn't have to keep hiring each year.License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations

I don't know myself, but I'm open minded enough to suspend judgement in the absence of the witness of those who have been there.

Legit question. Not speculation at all. Perhaps that is such an odd seasonal lifestyle that it is hard to swing on multiple years. But if it is a super deal than I highly doubt that he would put a want add in each season. Frankly I don't care either way.License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations

perhaps he wasn't happy with the way the previous employees took care of his house. perhaps they passed the stage in their lives where they could do this, or became otherwise attached.
i would expect that if he advertises in the same place year after year, and he is a dick, someone with experience would call him out on it.powdork.com - new and improved, with 20% more dork.

I read somewhere that this guy was the GSA."We need sometimes to escape into open solitudes, into aimlessness, into the moral holiday of running some pure hazard, in order to sharpen the edge of life, to taste hardship, and to be compelled to work desperately for a moment at no matter what. -George Santayana, The Philosophy of Travel

I am very familiar with the work required to keep an upscale backcountry lodge or chalet - the estimates of workload are NOT from imagination. Based on the limited info in that ad, I would considered it full-time job for a couple of people. Some might be willing to work for such little compensation, but even places that offer the same AND a small salary/monthly stipend have trouble keeping staff year over year. But if someone thinks this is an acceptable work contract for them - all the more power to em.
