Mr. Mopps' Children's Books


1401 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA, United States, 94709

Position: Part-Time

How'd you like to work at a children's book shop? Mr. Mopps' Children's Books is looking for a part-time (20-25 hours/week) bookseller to join the team!

We need help- we moved last September to a bigger space, and we are doing better than we anticipated. As such, we are looking for a bookseller (or possibly two) to come aboard and help us with daily operations.

Everyone here does everything- opening and closing the shop, answering phone inquiries, ringing customers up, receiving shipments, shelving books, adding input in regards to titles we should carry, and loads of handselling and customer service.

Employees have both times when they are working with someone else and times when they are working alone, so we are looking for people who are organized, self-motivated, reliable, friendly, work well with a team.

If that sounds fun and you have a passion for and knowledge of children's books, we'd love to hear from you! Please email your resume pasted in to the body of an email (we won't be opening any attachments), and put "Shelf Awareness" in the subject bar so we know where you came from. Tell us a little bit about yourself and a few of your favorite contemporary authors, illustrators, or titles.

Thanks for reading- we hope to hear from you soon.
