You Could Become The Next Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Driver

Most Penn State students have seen or heard about the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile — an oddly-shaped hot dog vehicle that occasionally winds its way through Happy Valley’s streets. Perhaps some frankfurter fans even dream of one day being able to drive the glorious, mustard-striped chariot across the country.

For a select group of soon-to-be alumni, this dream could soon become a reality. The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is on campus this week to recruit graduating seniors to join its team of drivers.

The position gives students the opportunity to run their own “PR firm on wheels” and “work for a multi-billion dollar brand,” according to Wienermobile spokesperson and Penn State alumna Sofia Cacho.

Selected applicants are sent on a year-long, cross-country brand ambassador trip in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile — one of the job’s most obvious perks. In the past, drivers have stopped in Nashville, San Diego, and Austin, building the brand’s image along the way.

For those interested in becoming “hotdoggers” — a.k.a Oscar Mayer Wienermobile spokespeople — the team will host an information session at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 13 in 60 Willard. Interested applicants (graduating seniors only) should bring a resume and cover letter to the session.
