Who are you?

  • Must be creative! This business is 100% about creating that perfect Instagram-able display for our clients. 

  • Excellent people skills - customer service is a huge part of this role and you will need to be great with people via email, phone, and in person.

  • Love to plan and problem solve - there are so many moving parts involved in our event scheduling that require creative solutions.

  • Organize - staying on top of inventory, and scheduling.

  • Leader - you will be overseeing event installations that will sometimes require managing multiple people. 

  • Hard-working! Installations for our displays require lots of hard work - sometimes outdoors, and usually up and down ladders.

  • Eye for detail - many of our displays require hours of detailed work to create a satisfactory final product.

  • The ability to work independently and manage your time well - this is not a job for someone who needs constant instruction. You will need to be very proactive to excel in this role. 

  • Innovative - we love new ideas, and techniques and are always down to add to and grow our business. 

 

Hours: Hours will vary based on the weeks events. We are looking for full time help. You will be required to work 2 weekends a month to oversee event installations. Hours can be incredibly flexible for weekday prep, there are no specific time window constraints as long as the work is getting done well, and in a timely manner. 

 

Transportation: You will be required to learn to drive our company cargo van (it’s very easy to drive). And sometimes you will need to drive your own vehicle to event installations as the van only seats 2. We do pay the IRS standard mileage when driving your vehicle from our shop to event installations. 

 

Wage: Pay will start at $15/hr while you are in training. The training period will last 4 weeks or until competency, whichever comes first. The pay rate will increase to $19/hr after the training period ends with great opportunity for incremental pay raises as more proficiency and responsibility is shown. There is massive room for quick growth in this role for anyone who is willing to take ownership within the company and manage the ins and outs of this business along side the owner. Being a part of a rapidly growing small business means opportunity for symbiotic growth. A rising tide raises all ships. We can teach you just about everything needed to excel in this role if you are a responsible, driven, and proactive individual!
