If you're a fan of The Office, you've probably spent several hours this week re-watching the workplace comedy. And now, you have the chance to make some money off this daily pastime.

USDish, an authorized DISH Network retailer, is looking for someone to watch 15 hours of The Office — oh, and they'll pay you a whopping $1,000 to do it. But there is a tiny catch: it won't be all mindless binge-watching. In fact, you're actually going to have to pay close attention. As the job listing explains, the position requires you to take very thorough notes on plenty of small details in each episode.

"For instance, how many times does Stanley roll his eyes at the camera?" the job posting reads. "How often does Phyllis talk about Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration? The goal is to help us understand how often sitcoms repeat popular tropes. We’ll provide you with general guidelines to track your experience, but in true Kelly Kapoor fashion, we also want you to share your unfiltered opinions and reactions on social media."

In addition to the cold hard cash, USDish is offering a few other incentives to make the job totally worthwhile, including a Netflix gift card, some Dunder Mifflin swag (including a Dundie) and the ability to complete the job from the comfort of your own home.

Interested applicants have until 5 p.m. on Monday March 15 to apply on the USDish website.
