Warehouse and Inventory Associate

Air conditioned warehouse position in Tempe (Priest and Southern) with locally-owned bookstore. We offer flexible hours 7-3:30 Monday - Friday for full time, part time flexible within those hours. We need associates for long-term and summer only positions. Start date can be immediate or whenever available (i.e. when school ends). Starting wage is $14 per hour.

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, 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. The salary potential of these positions is $50,000-$115,000 per year. Visit our Careers site to see some of the positions this could turn into long term.

All staff are offered 40 hours of work per week. We need people who can commit at least 30 hours per week during the summer months. Some of our staff choose to work less in the winter (as few as 6 a week) and more hours in the summers. 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, optional dental/life/accident/disability insurance to all employees, tuition reimbursement of up to $2650 per semester, and offer bonuses for performance to our higher level employees.
