Job Postings: What They Say vs. What They Mean

"Work in a fast-paced, results-oriented environment"

If you're applying for the U.S. Olympics' swim team, or a job that requires you to have lightning-fast reflexes to stay alive, like Bomb Squad Operative for example, this line may sound too obvious.

Typically it means however fast you work it will never be fast enough, and whatever targets are set at the beginning, the bar will be raised many more times than your "performance-based" salary ever will be.
