Employment

pb_signage

We run a lean ship here at Perfect Books. We have had NO turnover for quite some time. But every now and then an opening occurs. We look for staff members that read as if their life depended on it, are friendly and outgoing and enjoy working independently as well as working with others. Retail experience is a must and, of course, bookstore experience is extremely welcome! If you are a mature individual and think you'd like to spend a few hours a week working in a vibrant environment, surrounded by great books and fascinating people, drop by and bring along a resume. The pay is terrible but the benefits (books, books, books) are great.
