Air conditioned warehouse position in Tempe (Priest and Southern) with locally-owned k-12 bookstore. We need warehouse workers for our summer season. All warehouse/inventory jobs pay $14/hour to start. Ability to pass a background check and receive an Arizona fingerprint clearance card is needed for driver candidates, as well as a clean MVR. If you have box truck or forklift driving experience please mention it in your application.

Our core hours are 7-3:30 Monday – Friday. We need associates for long-term and summer only positions. Start date can be immediate or whenever available.

We purchase used Kindergarten-12th grade textbooks and resell them online and directly to schools. We need very detail-oriented, self-motivated individuals to assist with all aspects of the business.The majority of our employees work within a warehouse grading and sorting books, inputting inventory into our database, and picking, packing and shipping books. Some also go into the field to collect and sort books ready for pickup at various local locations. Most employees who do this call it a great paid workout. I hire the best, so you will work with the best.

We typically hire 20-30 additional employees each summer. We start all employees at $14 per hour ($17 for drivers), and give raises as people are given additional responsibilities. Your wage is only limited by your ability to grow. Employees who have the desire and ability are promoted from within and utilized in management, higher level administrative tasks, procurement, and sales positions. We only hire for these higher positions from current staff.

All staff are expected to work at least 40 hours of work per week in the summer months and we have a blackout on time off from May-September.. Some of our staff choose to work less in the winter (as few as 6 a week) and more hours in the summers due to school schedules or desire for flexibility for other reasons. We are as flexible with schedules as we can be and are happy to accommodate these kinds of needs for our hard-working and valuable staff members. There are also opportunities for overtime, especially in the summer, for those who desire it. We are looking for people who will add value to our business and ideally would become long-term higher level members of our staff.

We offer health insurance after 60 days of employment, dental/life/accident/disability to all employees, tuition reimbursement of up to $2650 per semester, and offer bonuses for performance to our higher level employees.
