Thank you for your interest in The Well~Read Moose

          as a possible place of employment.

Before you take the time to fill out one of our applications, we would like to provide some information on the positions we have at our store. We prefer that you select either the bookseller or café server position, as they are very different and in many ways require different skill sets.


We rarely hire on a seasonal basis – either summer or the holiday season. We have a thorough training process for both the bookseller and café server positions. We typically look for candidates that can commit to at least two years working with us. Evenings and weekends are required, and while we are closed on most national holidays, days before and after those holidays are typically required. Currently our entry-level pay starts at $9.50 per hour.


For the bookseller position, you will be helping customers with their book and gift purchases – and so much more! There is book research, unpacking and receiving merchandise, cleaning the store, updating displays – long hours on your feet. We enjoy teaching the many aspects of becoming a stellar bookseller! Most of all, you must have a strong desire to serve our customers.


For the café server position, you must be 19 in order to serve our wonderful regional beers and wines. This position involves lots of multitasking. There are a variety of coffee and non-coffee beverages to prepare and a variety of food items to prepare and/or cook. Enjoyment of both beverages and food is a must.


After carefully considering the positions outlined above and working at The Well~Read Moose is still of interest, we encourage you to fill out an employment application and return it to the store. Should a position become available that combines your interests and qualifications with our needs, we will contact you. Please refrain from calling and asking if we have reviewed your application and/or resume.


Thank you for considering employment at The Well~Read Moose and for your kind attention to the information outlined above.
