It’s time! Time to start interviewing for Colorado Loopy Elf positions. It has taken us longer than we thought to find a new spot for Loopy here in Fort Collins, but we’re finishing up the final lease details and hope to be able to tell you about that soon. In the meantime, we are ready to find a group of people who would love to work with us here in Colorado.
Details: We will be hiring an Office Manager, an Inventory Manager, and several Customer Service people (aka: Elves). For all positions, we are looking for people who are comfortable on the computer, able to do a lot of standing and walking while working, and able to lift up to 40 lb. boxes of yarn, when our inventory arrives each week. We’re looking for upbeat, detail-oriented people who are great at communication and value top-notch customer service.
While we do want to hire some people with knit/crochet experience, it’s not necessary for all positions. If you have non-knitting friends that you think would be a great fit for one of these positions, please pass this job information on to them. We’d love to meet them. (Although you might delete the “Elf” title when you tell them about these positions, as anyone not familiar with The Loopy Ewe might not get the whole Elf thing ….)
The positions will officially begin the first full week in December, but we will have a training session before that. The Office Manager position will require more training time before the shop gets here that first week in December as well.
If you’d like to apply for one of these positions or have further questions, please email me. (firstname.lastname@example.org) We’ll be conducting interviews in the next couple of weeks. Our Founding Elves in St. Louis have set a high bar with their awesome service, and we’re looking forward to finding a team here in Colorado that can do the same.
(P.S. Monday is Columbus Day here in the States, which means a No-Mail Monday. We’ll be back in the shop for your calls on Tuesday. Of course you know the website is open 24/7 – that never closes!)
