Job Opening - Creative Assistant


Creative? Interested in bringing your talents and energy to a growing company? Museware Pottery is looking for one creative self starter to join our fun and slightly wacky staff. This entry level position will expose you to all aspects of custom and personalized pottery production.

Duties vary widely - we all wear a lot of hats. They include production painting, kiln room management (glazing, loading, firing) packing, shipping and general studio maintenance. Oh, and I leave my dishes in the sink. A lot.

The ideal candidate will have a creative background - though not necessarily job related. A sincere desire to work in a creative field will do. You'll need strong organizational skills and an ability to multi task, all while working under pressure. Oh, an basic computer skills.

While I am known to be a slightly neurotic boss, an ability to avoid telling me that to my face will enhance your career. Some schedule flexibility is required. Due to deadlines, some days end only after the work at hand is complete. Occasional weekend work is required, particularly during the holiday season.

General hours are Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Pay starts at $9 per hour. Benefits are not currently available, but we have plans to become very famous. Come grow with us! This full time position starts in mid June. Half time training to start immediately.

Please send your resume to sheree at museware pottery dot com. Include a short note telling me about yourself, what you have to offer and why you'd like to spend most of your day with us. This is not a traditional work environment. When the kilns are firing, the studio temperature is often over 100*. Sometimes we work in our underpants.
