BOOKSELLER

We’re looking for a creative, flexible book-loving person to join our staff at Hicklebee’s as
a part-time weekend employee with weekday options. Starting pay $15.50 an hour.


Requirements:
• Works well with others.
• Previous customer service experience is helpful—bookstore experience is a plus—but if
you haven’t had that experience, and fill most of our requirements, we’re happy to offer
you the training you’ll need.
• Can work in an efficient, positive manner.
• Communication skills: personal, verbal and written.
• Computer literate (Microsoft Word, Google documents, Excel). Knowledge of IBIDIE is a
plus.
• Attention to detail important.
• References.


Do you like working with people? We pride ourselves on excellent customer service,
which often means reaching farther to keep our customers happy than one might think is
necessary.


Can you multitask? You might find yourself shelving a stack of books while the phone is
ringing, or at the cash register ringing up a long line of customers when another runs up to
you crying for toilet paper. All is expected to be handled with a smile.
During this pandemic time, we are diligent about keeping a safe environment for our staff
and customers. We expect all personnel to follow our Covid guidelines which includes
wearing a mask at all times and social distancing.


We opened Hicklebee’s in 1979 and continue to support a friendly work environment
where our customers receive skilled, professional attention and our staff enjoys their role
in making that happen. And, of course, we think it’s extremely rewarding to work in an
atmosphere of diverse ideas where books are put into the hands of readers of all ages.
Please send your resume to hicklebees@hicklebees.com or come in during store hours
for an application. Share this opportunity with others who might be interested.

 

SHIPPING/RECEIVING/ORDER FULFILLING
 

Join a staff of longtime employees in an independent, nationally known bookstore.
We’re looking for someone who is flexible and can work effectively under pressure to
receive books and sidelines into our system; to mail packages and to assist with filling
orders when necessary.


We are a community center that can go from a quiet environment to a cacophony of
sound and activity. We spend hours on our feet and can be called upon to lift heavy
boxes. Flexibility is important as well as being able to multitask.


Requirements
• Works well with others as well as self motivated and able to work independently.
• Previous customer service experience is helpful along with bookstore and/or
receiving experience—but if you haven’t had that experience, and fill most of our
requirements, we’re happy to offer you the training you’ll need.
• Can work in an efficient, positive manner.
• Communication skills: phone contacts with publishers, distributors.
• Must be willing/able to move boxes of books.
• Computer literate (Microsoft Word, Google documents, Excel). Knowledge of IBIDIE
is a plus.
• Attention to detail important.
• References.

Flexible Hours: Minimum 20 hours per week. Starting pay: $15.50 an hour.
