*** ALL POSITIONS ARE CURRENTLY FILLED***
We are growing quickly and looking for amazing retail associates to join our trio of companies - Paper Luxe, The Curious Bear, and our latest venture, The Crest Home!
We are currently looking for a full time (35-40 hrs/week) administrative assistant to work in the office alongside the owner/CEO and the management team. Hours will be Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm or 10am-6pm.
We are a true small business and no two days are ever alike. You will be primarily based in our office (located in a separate building from the retail shops, but within walking distance) working alongside one of the owners of the company. The ideal candidate will enjoy working primarily alone with occasional interaction with other team members.
We are looking for someone with exceptional attention to detail (you pay attention to the big and the little things) and strong organizational skills (you love to count things and file things and make lists). This is NOT a retail job and you will not be on the sales floor, although you may be asked to correspond and speak with customers via email/phone. There is tremendous growth potential for the right person. Primary Duties & Responsibilities:
- Filing and keeping the office organized
- Shipping all daily outgoing customer orders (all supplies on-site, training will be given)
- Running errands - trips to the recycling center, picking up lunches/coffee, bank deposits, customer deliveries
- Inventory management - reviewing and counting daily product arrivals, checking for damages, updating Shopify with new inventory, barcoding product, transporting over to the shops when ready to go on the floor
- Email management - help the CEO manage her inbox and the customer service inbox
- Calendar management - help the CEO manage her calendar
- Minor bookkeeping and accounting
- Strong organizational skills
- Exceptional attention to detail
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Ability to lift and carry boxes of inventory
- Efficient and quick-learner of various softwares and apps
- Positive, you-got-it-boss, zero-drama attitude
Office Environment Details:
This will not be a sit at a desk for 8 hours type of job. You will be moving boxes, opening boxes, checking off lists, entering information into the computer, sticking barcode labels on products, making lots of trips over to the stores, running errands off-site, packing shipments, sending lots of emails, attending meetings with the management team, etc. While you will be around people throughout the day, you need to be comfortable and content working quietly on your own most of the time.
- $14/hour to start
- Significant discount on all store purchases
- 1 week of PTO per year, which starts accruing after 90 days
- 1 hour of paid sick leave per 40 hours worked
Not to sound like a dating ad, but we’re looking for new friends who want to work hard, laugh a lot, and help our customers (and each other) celebrate all of life’s milestones. If you’ve got a good eye for design, a love of all things paper and gift, and/or you enjoy playing with toys, games, and puzzles, you might be a great fit!
Our only requirements are that you understand the importance of amazing customer service, bring a positive, upbeat attitude to the shops each day, and consistently show up when you are scheduled. All other on-the-job skills are trainable!
What will I be doing?
All of our open positions are general retail associates/team members. That means first and foremost, you are ensuring every single customer who walks into one of our stores has an exceptional experience from the moment they step in. You will welcome customers, provide product knowledge and recommendations if needed, check out customers using our POS system, wrap gifts, assist in merchandising the store, and help keep the stores clean. All team members will also be trained in receiving and processing new inventory.
We look for team members who are motivated self-starters, honest and self-aware, empathetic and understanding, with excellent communication skills.
We are looking for both part-time (5-20 hours per week) and full-time (30-40 hours per week) team members.
Full-Time (30-40 hr/wk):
You will be cross-trained to work in all 3 shops, but will have a primary location in either Paper Luxe or The Crest.
Schedules will vary slightly, but you should be available to work 30-40 hours, 5 days per week between 10am-6pm, including most weekends. We aim to alternate weekend shifts and give you consistent days off each week so you can still have a balanced life! But weekends in general are required, especially as we head into the holiday season, and working until 6pm will likely be requested. (If those are no-go’s for you, you may still be a good fit for a part-time position and we encourage you to apply!)
Part-Time (5-25 hr/wk):
You will be cross-trained to work in all 3 shops, with a primary location in one of them depending on your preference and availability.
Shifts are generally 3-5 hours, 2-5 days per week. All part-time staff are asked to work some weekend shifts, but we do try to alternate so everyone has some off (unless you WANT to work weekends, in which case we can definitely make that happen. :))
Growth potential is available for all positions. We’ve got big goals and would love to have you along for the ride. Oh, and did we mention…all team members receive a generous discount in all 3 stores, regardless of where you work.
Our company is proudly an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees and encourage applicants from all walks of life to apply.
