Job Title: Eastern Market Rental Operator
Pay Rate: $9/hour to start w/ $1/hr raise in 30 days w/adequate performance
Hours: Tuesday 9am-3pm; Friday 10am-6pm; Saturday 8am-6pm; Sunday 10am-4pm There is some flexibility with these days/hours, but a regular set schedule is a must.
Duties: Wheelhouse Detroit will be operating bicycle rentals at Eastern Market this year and we're looking for someone who loves bikes, people and Detroit to rent bikes for us! The Operator will be responsible to collect payment and signed waivers as well as adjust seat heights for customers to ensure they are comfortable. Helmets and locks will be provided as well.
Skills: Scared to talk to strangers? Need not apply. This job will require cash management, so some retail experience is preferred. Minor mechanical skills, including the ability to change a flat tire is preferred. Must have weekend and holiday availability.
The ideal candidate will be comfortable with diverse clientele and the ability to provide basic recommendations on cycling in Detroit. The ideal candidate will be willing to commit to working 4 days a week from April 28 through October. (Planned vacations/days off not-withstanding, of course!)
No uniform is required, although we will provide you with a couple of t-shirts. Open-toed shoes and fancy clothes are not recommended.
There will also be opportunities to pick up Bike Parking shifts, which also pays $9/hour and sometimes comes with free event tickets (ie, Movement Festival, Detroit City FC matches). It’s probably the most fun you can have working.
This job is at-will, part-time and seasonal. There is potential for this job to be combined with a Shop Help position if the applicant is interested in more hours.
Send note of introduction that includes any relevant experience and a job history as well as three (non-relative) references to firstname.lastname@example.org. All received resumes will be saved through the course of the 2016 season so, even if you do not hear back from us immediately, it is likely that you will at some point. No calls, please.
