Getting a Job Here

Fairly often, we get asked if we have any openings are are looking for help. The answer is generally "No, we would have to fire someone." If you do want a job here, we are looking for people with two things:

1) a resume.  Having a resume means you are serious about looking for a job. I don't want someone who has not given any thought ahead of time to positions for which they are looking and haven't taken the time to put themselves down on paper.

2)what do you bring.  This is a capitalist operation. Under communism, "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." What we are looking for is someone who brings something with them:  knowledge, attention to detail, new ideas, that will generate more in sales than they cost in wages. Be able to tell me specifically how hiring you will increase store sales. We don't need tohire anyone whose hiring will just maintain sales. I want people who, by bringing them on staff, will increase them.
