Microsoft Is Trying to Poach Amazon and Google Employees By Giving Out Free Bacon

By Casey Chan on at

Microsoft is trying to hire new employees by luring them with god's greatest creation, the devil's most delicious treat and man's greatest love: bacon. They've set up a bacon cart (!) outside of Amazon's offices and will give away free bacon to everyone. EAT BACON, WORK MICROSOFT.

This isn't lame sauce light bacon either, it's the good juicy fatty stuff that can be topped with Sriracha, spray cheese, peanut butter, maple syrup and chocolate sauce. The idea of the bacon cart work trap was created by ad agency Wexley School for Girls because Microsoft wanted to double its Kinect for Windows team from 35 to 70. And with good engineers typically already working for other companies, the bacon cart is a great ploy for Microsoft to grab their attention and tell them to "Wake up and Smell the Future".

The food cart is serving free bacon today at Amazon headquarters in South Lake Union, Seattle and has plans to move over to Fremont on Tuesday to be near Adobe and Google. I wonder if I'll think of Microsoft the next time I eat bacon? [Seattle Times via The Next Web]
