Wackiest Jobs in the World
7. Cheese Sprayer
These are the people who evenly distribute the cheese flavouring on your popcorn and they do it by hand. It's one of those jobs where you don't realize how important it is until someone screws it up. Imagine paying for a box of Orville's and noticing it's more than a little bland? Yeah, then your wishing the cheese sprayer knew how to do his job. It takes measuring specified quantities of cheese and oil into thermostatically controlled melting and mixing kettles. Dumping salt into the hopper of salt-sprinkling device. Starting a conveyor to admit popcorn to rotating drum. Pumping melted cheese through spray nozzle onto the popcorn. Placing a container in front of the drum to receive coated popcorn. Transferring the container to packing room. Sound easy? You try it.
