Employment

Dear Applicant,
We thank you for your interest in employment at Gibson’s Bookstore.

A shift in a bookstore of our size can be strenuous and tiring work. Much time is spent on one’s feet and it is necessary to stay upbeat and remain positive as long as you are in the store.  You’ll need to be aware constantly of each customer’s taste in books or gifts, and draw on your own taste, experience, and knowledge to match them with perfect choices. You’ll need to work well with other booksellers, drawing on their knowledge, to provide the best in customer service. When not engaging with customers, you may be involved with shelving and other inventory management, cardboard and trash removal, and other duties typical to a retail operation.
Typical starting pay is $10.00/hr. After a suitable period, booksellers may receive raises.

If you believe, considering the pay and the requirements mentioned above, that you are a good candidate for a position at Gibson’s Bookstore, please download and complete the following application and turn it in at the main register of the store. We receive a high volume of applications and therefore cannot contact every applicant personally; however, we will hold onto your application for at least a year and we will contact you if we would like to set up an interview.

Thank you very much for your interest in working at Gibson’s Bookstore. We look forward to seeing your application and encourage you to have fun and be creative. If you have questions, comments, brief essays, or other materials in support of your potential employment at Gibson’s, please submit those materials with your application.

Sincerely,
Gibson’s Bookstore Management and Staff
