We get you. Like us, you love working with products from local farmers and ranchers (yep, you’re right, the local food system really is important!). Little makes you feel better than knowing the customers are happy and you’ve thoughtfully packed their order. Thank goodness you are detail oriented because customers love getting exactly what they asked for!
You like working with your hands and you really like how there’s enough moving and lifting to keep your body active. We agree, some of the activities like portioning and bagging apples and lettuce really are relaxing! And that whole detail-oriented-thing is really coming in handy again. It warms our hearts that you know that weighing accurately means customers will be happy and there will be enough for everyone.
Also, isn’t the happy look on the customer’s face when you hand them their order wonderful? People really appreciate you! That includes your co-workers. They’re kind and interesting and enjoy working with you.
Oh, and I don’t want to forget to mention that the way you thought through and resolved that issue that came up- that was magnifique! Most of all, it’s terrific how you have such a positive attitude and can also take accountability- in a healthy way. It sure is easier to work together when we know we can count on each other! Of course, your co-workers always appreciate how you communicate thoughtfully and professionally, even if there’s a misunderstanding.
Did we get it right? If so, give us a shout! The pay is $15 per hour, with earned PTO, in Longmont, working with a beloved local nonprofit organization, and we can be flexible with your schedule. Tarry not. We’re checking our email like a farmer waiting on his tractor warranty!
