Though you don't need to be a professional actor, the company is looking for outgoing Montrealers who are regulars at a sandwich restaurant in Montreal. Only Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada can apply.
Auditions for "Project Sandwich Montreal" will be held online on July 16 and the shoot will take place on a day between July 23 and 27.

Those who get hired will make $75 for a wardrobe appointment, $75 for a COVID-19 test, and $750 for one day of filming. If your footage is used in the final commercial, you'd receive an additional $1,500 to $2,000.
