That’th wight — Ethpwetho ith haiyawing! Infoe:
We have an opening for one new trainee to begin working as barback in April and barista in the fall. We’re looking for current freshmen and sophomores who are work study only (sorry, upperclassfolks, etc.)
If interested, please email Hannah Cressy ’13 (hcressy@wes) a resume/experience list and short answers to the following questions by MONDAY, MARCH 26.
See job description and short application questions below:
As a barback, you will work one to two 9pm-11pm shifts a week. You will be working during our busy periods, at the same time as a barista, and will be responsible for working the register station, brewing drip coffee and anything else the barista needs so that they can make drinks as fast as possible. You will receive 3-5hrs of mandatory paid training from the cafe manager over the course of the spring semester. Satisfactory completion of work as a barback will make you eligible to become a barista, which will involve a raise and the requirement of working at least one 5 hour shift a week. Baristas at Espwesso are responsible for making drinks, taking suggested per-drink donations, and cleaning and maintaining the cafe space. We are seeking students who are willing to commit sustained time and energy to this cafe, are welcome to apply. Food-service (especially café) experience is a plus but not a requirement.
Please send short answers to the following questions (and a resume, if you have one) to hcressy[wee!]wesleyan[woo!]edu.
1. Are you work study? (this is work study only!)
2. What days Sunday-Thursday are you available to work 9:00pm-11:00pm?
3. Why do you want to work at the cafe?
4. What’s your relationship to coffee?
5. Given free reign, what are some albums you’d listen to during your shift?
6. What sorts of activities give you creative outlet and inspiration?
