Want to work at our wild bird shop?  We are looking to hire a new sales associate to start immediately and work an average of 2 days per week.  One of those days being Sunday (10am – 5pm) and the other ideally Tuesday or Thursday (9am-6pm), but there’s some flexibility with the second day.  Occasionally working 3 days a week when other employees take time off.

Prior retail or customer service experience is required.  We are looking for someone who enjoys talking to people and engaging with customers.  A passion for wild birds or at least some experience with backyard bird feeding is highly desired, but at minimum a love and appreciation for nature is required.  Need to be familiar with computers and have a basic understanding of Microsoft Windows and Office Programs (Word, Excel, Publisher).  As a small business, we must wear many hats, so prefer someone who is a good problem solver and looks for ways to improve things.  We pride ourselves on offering great products with quality service and expertise, so a positive attitude is a must.  Must be able to occasionally lift 50lb bags and load them into customers’ vehicle.

Responsibilities would include:

– Answering customer questions and ringing up sales

– Unboxing orders and restocking shelves

– Cleaning the store

-Occasionally helping deliver products (you would be compensated for miles driven)

-Helping with any other issues that may arise

– Occasionally mixing and bagging bird seed, but most of this will be done by other employees

Starting pay will vary slightly depending on experience level but starting at $15-$18 per hour.  If it ends up being a good fit, we can discuss raising this after the initial training period.  The schedule is fairly flexible, just need to know your desired days off as early as possible.
