Ableism in sales?

Y'aaaaall. My boss just sent me a job posting for any comments/edits, and this language is bullshit. And I'm assuming this goes on every job posting at the company. Since when is CLIMBING involved in closing deals?? Do colorblind people have no capacity to close deals???


"Occasionally required to sit; climb or balance; and stoop, kneel, crouch, or crawl.Β Must frequently lift and/or move up to ten (10) pounds and occasionally lift and/or move up to 25 pounds.Β Specific vision abilities required by this job include close vision, distance vision, color vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, and the ability to adjust focus."


Pissed in general about this. And I'm assuming HR came up with this language so...cool.


I see "lift/move 10 pounds" on job postings on multiple sites, but like...can we not? I work from home, I've always worked from home, I could have no legs and still do my job.


Mostly just want to vent, but if anyone has experience pushing HR on job posting templates, I'd love to hear it.
