We're looking for someone to join our team at our shop in Lawrenceville! Please note that this position is not for a designer or printer, nor will it be a stepping stone to that position in the immediate future. Pittsburgh is full of talented design folks who are eager to put on an apron, but it's just not what we're in need of at the moment.
Position: Full Time Packaging/Assembly Person M-F, 9-5:30, starting at $10/hour
Job Description: All day long, we print. That means nothing if those cards aren't packaged and shipped to all of our awesome shops. The job will consist of you scoring, folding, counting, inserting envelopes into cards, inserting cards & envelopes into sleeves, counting, preparing the box for shipping, and most likely, more counting. If you can count on anything with this job, it's counting. This happens every day, all day, and it needs to be done both quickly and correctly.
Over time, you will be expected to learn our inventory, our shops, stationery sizes, and all other things related to packaging and assembly. Once you have a handle on the inventory, you will be expected to pull the orders as well as package them. Ideally, you will be handling that order from beginning to end and will be the go-to person when it comes to checking the status of an order, or dealing with any issues that may arise with an order once it has reached its destination.
Our shop gets very busy and the day to day needs and priorities often change with very short notice. We need someone that is focused, but at the same time, can easily switch gears and move on to what needs to be done at that exact moment. I'm looking for someone that is going to feel confident about completing the tasks at hand, but at the same time not afraid to ask questions or call themselves out if they are unsure about something or have made mistakes.
I need someone that is self motivated, someone who will take pride in their work, and someone who understands that we have definite goals that need to be met each day in a timely manner. That being said, all the standard "great employee" traits still apply. We need you to show up on time, be self motivated, have a high attention to detail, and it will obviously help if you enjoy keeping busy and working with your hands.
The perfect candidate will be hired with the understanding that they will have a review after 30 days.
If you think you fit the bill then send an email to email@example.com. If you don't think it's for you, then maybe you know someone. That's just as good.
