This company is very generous with paid time off. They would prefer you work the first 90 days without absence but open to approving time off with advance notice if scheduling allows.

Come prepared. Bring multiple resumes. Have interview questions written out and ready. Appear organized. Take the time to do your research on the imprint/department/team ahead of time and ask thoughtful questions. Wear a suit even if things have become more casual. I'm a little old school for a millenial.

Minimum age to work there is 16 . Starting wage is $10 which is better than local retailers and eateries. You can earn more by working the evening or weekend shift. They offer PT evenings 4-8 and a weekend only shift that's perfect for students. They only accept applications when hiring. Check it out!
