Help Wanted

Curtis and I are looking for a coworker.  We are looking to hire a part time, 20-40 hours a week, mechanic/sales person for seasonal work.  Our requirements are pretty simple.  Fist off, you need to be mechanically inclined.  You don't need to be a bike mechnic right now, (although that would help,) but we need to be able to train you to work on bikes.  If you are not comfortable with mechanical tasks, this job isn't for you. 

Secondly, you need to be a people person.  This job entails dealing with the public on many levels.  Whether it's dealing with sales on the floor, calling customers in regards to repairs, or participating in group rides, you'll be talking and dealing with people every day.  If you're not one to go out of your way to help people, or have trouble approaching people this may not be for you either.

Thirdly, you need to be a biker.  This may sound like a no brainer, but it's a big deal to us.  Curtis and I live and breath bikes.  It's the culture we've built around the shop, and it's the public image we have and deserve.  This is a place for bikers, and you should be one in a large way.

This job provides a ton of opportunity to the right person.  We offer many insites and contacts with good companies throughout the biking community.  We have a personal relationship with many many good customers.  We pay wages in line with industry standard, along with discounts on bikes, parts and clothing. We offer flexible scheduling and time off as well.  Starting pay based on experience will be $8.50-10 and hour.  A low cost apartment above the shop will be available for rent if needed or desired.

If this sounds like a job you'd be interested in give us a call or stop in and pick up an application.  Thank you, and have a great Friday.

I'm sure you would bring a lot of special talents to the position.

The pay is probably less, though it's also probably a little lower stress.

That job WAS high stess, back in the day when there was always a random object flying across the shop, or hot wheel car crushings

If it weren't for the mortgage and the impending divorce if I applied for this job, I'd be all over it.
