We are seeking an otter staff person! Looking for a bright, friendly, and efficient new member to join our team. Must be computer competent, and prior POS experience will be an asset. Excellent customer service is essential, with the attitude that the customer’s needs come first. The ability to work well on one’s own and with others, to handle monetary transactions and cash quickly and accurately, and to assess and do necessary tasks without direction are required abilities.
Other tasks will involve receiving new stock, taking and placing special orders and keeping the store tidy. Must enjoy books and reading, and have enthusiasm for helping customers find that right book.
The position will start with two training shifts end of May followed by a few weeks of trial period with the permanent position starting the fourth week of June.
We anticipate that the position will be 17 to 23 hours a week in summer with the possibility of longer hours starting in September. Some flexibility will be expected when other shifts need coverage, and at certain times such as over Christmas.
If this position feels right for you, please leave your resume or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be contacting those we intend to interview by May 25.
