As per the project, the employed person will just have to report to a train station named Korsvägen. And that's all.

Korsvägen is currently under construction in the Gothenburg, Sweden.

A salary of about $2,320 (approximately Rs. 1.6 lakh) per month will be paid to the employee.

In addition, he/she would receive an increase in annual wage, vacation time-off, and pension provision after retirement.

Requirements

'Whatever the employee chooses to do constitutes the work'

The job requirement is pretty simple here, which states, "The position holds no duties or responsibilities, other than that it should be carried out at Korsvägen. Whatever the employee chooses to do constitutes the work."

The only requirement of the employee is to clock in and clock out at the station. They are not even required to stay at the station throughout the day.
