Just days after firing tons of salaried journalists and editorial writers, Buzzfeed announced Monday that they're looking to hire a bunch of new writers who will be "paid hourly wages" and receive "no benefits."

Entertainment editor Krystie Lee Yandoli shared the news on Twitter writing: "In the past, fellowship programs were 3-4 months & paid hourly wages with no benefits. Applications are due today while layoffs are happening across the company affecting full-time employees in those same depts."

Former Buzzfeeder Sam Stryker asked in the comments if he should apply for the job:

Hopefully Buzzfeed can snag up some of those H-1B recipients flooding into the country for media jobs!
