WordsWorth Books and Company Looking for Part-Time Help

417492_378991692111140_1621263456_nWordsWorth is accepting resumes for the fall. We are looking for part-time help (20-30 hours) filling a customer service role at least through December. More hours may be offered closer to the holiday shopping season. Prior bookstore experience is not necessary, but retail experience and computer proficiency are favored. The position requires some lifting and moving of moderately heavy loads (stacks of books). Looking for those who can work during peak business times, including Thanksgiving weekend and Christmas Eve.


Email inquiry with attached resume to http://www.wordsworthbooks@sbcglobal.net, include hours you would be available to work (please be specific, not just “anytime”) or call to inquire at 501-663-9198.
