Interested in being surrounded by yarn EVERY DAY?
Skacel Collection, Inc. has a full-time position available
in their shipping and receiving department. Not only will you literally be
surrounded by yarn, you will also get the benefit of working with a very
creative and fun team. And yes! Benefits do include a hefty discount on yarn
and needles – as well as freebies on occasion!
As a member of
the skacel shipping and receiving
team, you will be responsible for picking and shipping items that will end up
in local yarn shops across the United States and Canada. Receiving of new
product (you see it first!) and inventory (ok, not always fun), will also be
part of the position. Thus, having the stamina to be on your feet during the
entire work day and the ability to lift 50 pounds is important. On the bright side, your daily workout most
likely won’t be necessary.
Experience in a shipping and
receiving environment is not necessary, but here is what is of importance to
- Show up on time on a daily
basis. Reliability is extremely important.
- Team attitude. All for
one and one for all. You’ll be spending 8 hours with us 5 days a
week. We will become your second
family. Tolerance and acceptance, and better yet, embracing differences,
is a necessity.
- Basic math skills - ability to
count, add, subtract, multiply, and divide. (Yes, you can use a smart
phone or a calculator if needed.)
- Be flexible. We are a small company and sometimes our
shippers need to assist the office staff by answering the phone. And visa
- Pay attention and be
aware. Accuracy and thoroughness
are important to our team. As is safety.
- Flex your brain muscles to
creatively find solutions for unfortunate situations.
- Computer knowledge and the ability
to learn our invoicing system. Although we use paper pick tickets, we do
plan to switch to scanners in the near future, when all our vendors have
barcodes on their items!
- Have no fear, we have no
forklifts. But, you will get to
Skacel Collection, Inc. is a woman owned and run,
progressive company. Frequently a leader in our industry, skacel has been supporting Local Yarn Shops as a wholesaler of
