Katherine Anne Confections is searching for a hardworking, positive, charismatic addition to our small yet mighty team as we grow, to work in our cafe / workshop making drinks and selling sweet treats. Helping customers find their perfect chocolate or caramel treat, and having them leave with the most wonderful memories, is the primary focus of your job.

Shop duties include learning about our confections and our processes, helping run a small cafe in its entirety, and explaining what makes Katherine Anne Confections unique to get people as excited about chocolate as we are. You'll be quickly and correctly making hot chocolate and sandwiches, putting together gifts and talking with our friendly retail customers. You'll also be responsible for keeping the workshop neat and clean, maintaining a friendly and safe working environment.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to work on our drinking chocolate program as well as social media.

This position will require:

Being awesome!
Opening and closing duties: getting us set up for the day and arranging those perfect rows of truffles, and returning the kitchen to a pristine state at night.
Cash handling: counting.
Weekends, sometimes late hours, occasional long shifts especially during the holiday season.
High attention to detail: completing orders perfectly, remembering those 8 part orders with substitutions.
Sense of urgency and able to work quickly under pressure: taking orders and making drinks concurrently, charmingly, and quickly
Ability to lift 50 pounds
Ability to stand on your feet all day

Possible growth opportunities include graphic and packaging design assistance, planning on and off-site events, cafe manager, and other opportunities as yet undiscovered.

You'll think this is a great place to work if you like these things:
- Having a small team means that you'll wear a lot of hats, and are able to learn all aspects of our business and production
- We make everything from the ground up, focusing on local and seasonal products
- We launch new flavors weekly so there's always new chocolate one must taste
- During our seasonal rush (Nov-Feb) we are extremely busy in the shop. For the remainder of the year, you have the opportunity to be a self-starter and focus on other projects.

Pay is $16/hour plus tips. Full time with PTO. Health insurance is available. Please send your resume and cover letter.
