#379: Lame Job Posting Phrase

In my job search, I am now very tired of start-ups that are looking for a "rock star" to fill their position.  Especially when it's a lame position.  It's a case where the first person that thought to use the term was original and it might have worked but now, I find it indicates severe lameness in a company to use the phrase.  Example from one I'm looking at now:
You must be comfortable with conducting extensive research with large data sets, and turn analytic learning into actionable strategy. We are looking for a rock star who can solve the toughest and most interesting problems in the company. 
Severity: 2
