Thank you for your interest in employment at Bunch of Grapes Bookstore. We’d like to give you some basic information about working at the bookstore that will help you decide whether or not to apply.
We’re looking for employees who are book lovers, who are customer and detail-oriented and who love Martha’s Vineyard. It can be a very physically demanding job, as you will spend long hours on your feet and you must be able to lift at least 30 pounds. We hire full-time and part-time employees. Part-time employees may work up to 20 hours per week, and must be available to work some evenings and weekends on a regular, and occasionally rotating, basis. We need all employees to help customers with book and gift purchases, to work as cashiers, clean and maintain the store, and to help logistically for in-store and offsite events.
Bringing books and people together is personally rewarding, yet working in a bookstore is not for everyone. Beginning pay is $10.00 per hour. You can expect to move into other areas of operation as opportunities present themselves and your interests and expertise develop. We see teamwork, book knowledge, flexibility and, above all, customer service as critical elements to the success of this store.
There are benefits to offset the hard work. Employees become part of a 42+ year old independent community bookstore. Renowned speakers visit our store for author events. Employees receive advance copies of books as well as discounts on books and gifts. Vacation and sick leave are paid based on length of employment and the store provides health insurance reimbursement.
If you think you can fulfill the requirements above, please apply for a position. Should a position be immediately available that combines your interest and qualifications with our needs, we will contact you. If no positions are initially available, we will keep your application for 6 months. Along with your application/resume, please include a handwritten note with the answers to the following questions:
