my boss makes me wear her clothes, eat her food, and say I’m grateful for my job

Employer offered me more money than they advertised. I got a call later that day saying not only are they offering me the job, but they are increasing the salary significantly above what was mentioned in the ad (that we also discussed in the interview)!
