Who is Hollis Jane Andrews? Actress posts Scientologist family's 'BONKERS' list for nanny: 'Empty poo poo bin'
An actor, Hollis Jane Andrews, took to Twitter to share a job description for the position of a nanny she had interviewed for in 2013. Unbeknownst to her then, the family offering the position were Scientologists.
Developed by L Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion — that has often been called a cult by its critics — that claims to offer a “precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being”.

Who is Hollis Jane Andrews?
An actor based out of Los Angeles, Andrews took to Twitter and wrote, “In 2013, I interviewed with an (unbeknownst to me at the time) Scientologist family to be their nanny. They gave this absolutely BONKERS list of responsibilities and now I give it to all of you.”
The position titled “Magical Nanny/Housekeeper Hat” came with a purpose: “To keep boys well-fed/well-slept and keep house in order to provide sanity for parents.” The main focus, the ad said “is to ensure their basic rudiments* are kept in, so that they are not crying/upsetting the rest of the house”. Rudiments meant "sleep, food, and watered" as per a footnote.
"If I am training I don't want to hear crying or tantrums or headbutting," the ad warned. "If they hurt themselves, keep quiet, apply Dianetics & assist tech always." It added, "There is to be NO movies, whilst under your care, please turn your phone OFF whilst at work."
A timetable was also provided documenting the course of the children's day, which included taking them for a two-hour run at 9 am. "Get them to run, throw rocks and RUN with them, don't stop them running ever… If they are crying and yelling, they are not happy and as a nanny, you need to get them back happy again.” It also contained instructions like, “Make sure you act like a kid with them, never serious”, “get them to feed horses apples”, “tidy up the bathroom, empty up the stinking poo poo bin”, and “magically transform into a cleaning nazi”.
Andrews mentioned on Twitter that the job paid $13 per hour and added, “In case it wasn’t clear, I did NOT take the job the minute I saw the word ‘dianetics’.” The actor’s IMDb page lists her work in television. She appeared in shows such as ‘Better Things’, ‘Disadvantage’, ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries’, ‘The Monahans and MacGoverns and ‘Nobodies’.
On Twitter, many people were equally tickled and concerned about the job description. “There's just... so. much. going. On. But, that cleaning list, which is a beaut, lemme tell ya, is supposed to be accomplished in 45 MINUTES. I would have emptied ‘the stinking poo poo bin’ into the ‘food bowls’ before covering them ‘with lids’. These poor kids,” wrote a Twitter user.
Another user said, “This is just crazy!! Are these kids or Dogs? It seems that they are clearly on a keto diet. Why do they need the extra protein drinks? Why are the drinks in a bottle? How old are these kids? If they’re even kids I don’t know I have so many questions.” One user said simply, “Normal scientologist behaviour.”
