Pour Olive is in need of a friendly face with great taste buds!

We are a local small business that runs well throughout the year and then explodes during the holiday season. It's always a lot of busy fun that we look forward to each year! We are a bit short staffed moving into the 2016 Holiday Season and are in need of someone who can help us out. Are you interested or know someone who is wanting/willing to help out? Let us know with an email to [email protected] Please include a resume and a quick cover letter about yourself.

What it entails:

  • Greeting our fine guests as they arrive and directing them to their desired goods
  • Help our guests pick their favorite oils & balsamic by suggesting pairings
  • Whip up some quick samples of pairings
  • Relaying some of the most important olive oil and balsamic knowledge to those who are curious
  • Filling and stocking bottles
  • Stocking gifts, food, and body products
  • General cleaning like wiping counters, sweeping and mopping, cleaning dishes
  • General opening/closing tasks
  • Ringing up items on our register and completing transactions

  • Preparing gift baskets
  • Lifting and moving 20+ pound Fusti containers
  • Stamping bags

What is helpful and/or necessary:

  • Previous customer service experience in a food related industry or otherwise
