We Are Hiring!
We're excited to announce that we are hiring for a position with Ampersand! If you love flowers, are invested in community, like to work with a tight knit crew, and be a part of our lil' family, we would love to hear from you. You must be eager to learn and enjoy creative challenges, go with the flow, and can wear many proverbial hats. We are looking for a creative, inspiring, genuine, humble, people-person to rely upon while exploring everything floral and retail.
As a small business, we are reliant upon every single team member and are looking for an overall sense of amazingness in our next member. A dedicated love for flowers and creativeness is just as important as a strong sense of loyalty to support our small business succeeding and growing.
The position entails all things flowershop-hustle including designing bouquets, helping walk-in clients, representing Ampersand in and out of the shop on installations/drop offs when applicable, delivering flowers, phone calls, emails, invoicing, & having a lot of flexibility--all hands are on deck, and we need all team members to fully understand all aspects. This specific position is highly customer facing, retail focused, and delivery focused. This position is not a events/wedding designer position, but primarily for the retail space (although some bleed over could be expected).
It should also be noted that this is a very physically intensive job, heavy lifting, standing for most of the day, etc.
Ideally, you you will be proficient in using MacOS systems and all things computer saavy. A valid driver's license is required, along with comfortability with driving all company vehicles (a cute mommy van and tiny two door go-cart type vehicle) as well as, on occasion, a rental vehicle.
We are looking to fill a full-time position, 5 days a week including weekends, your flexibility and open schedule is definitely preferred as some shift in the schedule will naturally occur during the training period and thereafter. We do ask for a year minimum commitment of time, if not more!
Previous flower experience highly preferred & encouraged, especially retail flower shop experience. Please be prepared to showcase some sense of a portfolio as well as references.
We're looking to fill the position right away and would like you to begin as soon as possible! History has informed us that these positions fill very quickly.
Please email your resume to email@example.com asap!
