Description
Who we are
 
We’re Your Friendly Neighborhood Comic Shop.  You may be more familiar with us as our former name the Eye Opener Book Store.  
 
In the last year we have seen tremendous growth, from venturing into new retail avenues, creating our own line of products, moving to a larger retail venue, and more.  These are just a few small steps on our road map and we still have a long way to go with a lot of exciting opportunities in our future.
 
We are a forward looking company looking for like minded individuals to join our team.  Our future plans do not stop at a single retail store here in Brandon, but expand much, much further beyond that.
 
What we’re looking for
 
As a great man once said “With great power comes great responsibility”.  Well we are looking for people who dont shirk from responsibilities and enjoy being acknowledged and rewareded for going above and beyond for the company. Those of you who join us at this ground floor and show comitment, resolve, ambition and responsibility will find yourself moving from what would be initially part time casual work, to a full time career path.  
 
We want people that will grow with us and turn into life long partners, not casual staff that we will fire as soon as xmas season is over.  Every one of us currently working at the FNCS has worked in a place of business where the boss and higher ups work you to the bone and show no appreciation.  Where you try your best, work extra hours, and then get no recognition or respect.  That's no way to work or live.
 
Thats not us.  If you are accepted into the company then be prepared to make life long friends and be rewarded for your hardwork.  
 
Normally I would go on to quote some lines from Scarface about money and power but I think you get the idea so instead I’ll list some skills that would definately help us take on some of our future ventures.
 
  • Website design and administration (knowledge of HTML, CSS, Java, wordpress will help)
  • Database & inventory management
  • Ecommerce  coordinator
  • Customer sales & support
  • Ebay listing experience
  • Cash handling, till operations & allround retail floor activities
  • Data entry
  • Computer networking knowledge (A+, NET+, MSCE, etc certifications would help)
  • Familiar with merchandising
  • POS, cash handling and till use
  • Graphic design
  • Marketing
 
This list goes on and on, but the basic idea is the more skills you have the better.  We are expanding into areas that almost all level of skills will have a use.
 
*Knowledge in comics, video games, board games & general “geek” culture can be helpful, but it is easier to train a person to learn these subjects then it is to say, train a comic nerd how to interact with people.  We’ve all seen the comic book guy on the Simpsons and nobody wants to deal with that.


What we DONT need
 
  • Arrogant people
  • Lazy people
  • People just looking for a “job”
  • Humorless people
  • Entitled people
  • Comic book guy from the Simpsons
  • People with no sense of punctuality

Qualifications
 
  • People skills.  Interacting with customers, strangers on the internet, other businesses and especially your fellow staff is key to us.  Friendly is in our name.  Literally.
  • Flexible availability
  • Willingness and ability to learn new things
  • Cynical sense of humor
  • Creative thinking
  • Self motivating
  • Good personal hygeine
  • Ambition
  • Willingness to become a jack of all trades.  As the company grows there will be many different roles for you to explore
  • Good communication skills
  • The ability to count and read
  • Multitasking
  • Able to accept constructive critisism
  • Bondable
  • Willingness to travel


Caveats
 
We don’t need you to have a Bachelor of Arts, MD, or other degrees.  None of this will hurt you, but it most likely won’t help you much either.
 
Highschool students. We won’t say no to you based on you're age or school program, but we understand you will have limited availability and this will probably affect your own growth rate within the company.  But you're also young and verile and can run farther and lift heavier stuff then the rest of us so thats a plus.
 
The above applies to university/college students as well.
 
We are an equal opportunity employer.  We dont care about your color, race, relgion, or diet all of that is left at the door.  We will judge everyone based on what they are.  An individual.
 
Hours
 
Initially we are looking for casual work shifts to be filled.  Our store hours are going to be expanding in the very near future so as that happens, more hours will become available.  Depending on the individuals and how our projects line up salaried postitions may become available as well.
 
All new recruits will be subject to 3 month trial periods where if things are not working out you can and will be cut lose during this time.
 
Resumes can be dropped off at your Friendly Neighborhood Comic Shop located at 1700 Pacific Avenue or emailed to scott@friendlyneighborhoodcomicshop.com
 
Call back for interviews will begin shortly after this posting.
 
Thanks and we look forward to meeting you.
