Unread post by catherineyronwode » Thu Sep 12, 2013 7:57 am

OCCULT SHOP, CANDLE SHOP, METAPHYSICAL SHOP

West Sonoma County home-based online occult and magic shop needs an energetic and self-motivated candle-labeller, product-maker, order taker, and customer service associate.

This position is for full-time employment, 5 days (40 hours) per week which includes 1 weekend day (Saturday or Sunday).

-------------------------------------------------------
An Unusual Field of Employment
-------------------------------------------------------

We serve spiritual practitioners, clients, and students of magic around the world, from virtually every religious, magical, and cultural tradition, so an open mind will be rewarded by many interesting experiences. Most of our customers are African American practitioners of Southern-style hoodoo rootwork. Familiarity with this form of practice is a plus; we will train you and teach you if this tradition is new to you. We also serve local Neopagan, Buddhist, Catholic, Lukumi, Witchcraft, Palo, Hindu, Jewish, and Ceremonial Magick customers.

Potential employees must have a sincere interest in folk magic, folk art, folk lore, and herbology, and must be willing to take on all manner of assignments as flexible team players. Practical personal experience with spiritual, magical, occult, and folkloric practices and in retail sales is a plus.

We are looking for a personable, energetic friendly, mature person, with a positive attitude, a good outlook on life, excellent hand-eye coordination, and a natural aptitude for both spirituality and handicrafts. We value accuracy, neatness, and attention to detail. Maturity is a plus. Legible handwriting is a plus, as are any skills you may have in metaphysical fields such as card reading or palmistry, in customer service, and in hand-work such as sewing or cooking.

-------------------------------------------------------
Job Duties and Training
-------------------------------------------------------

Duties include answering the phone, and managing calls; making and packaging occult goods; part-time data entry; educating and informing customers about our products; helping customers with purchasing options and procedures; packaging products for customers; pulling orders for mail order customers; and performing small warehouse maintenance as needed.

You will be given three weeks of hands-on training in product manufacture, plus an eight-week intensive study-course in conjure, with eight homework assignments,

We will train you to use the computer to print labels for herb packets and candles from a database of pre-designed label art and to help maintain herb and candle inventory.

We will also cross-train you in simple database entry as part of order fulfillment.

-------------------------------------------------------
Physical and Skill-Set Necessities
-------------------------------------------------------

You must be able to sit, stand, bend, and reach with hands; able to key at a computer; able to lift and carry a 35 lb. box; and able to do some shop cleanup tasks, including dusting and sweeping your own work-areas on a rotating basis.

Basic proficiency in computer skills required are email, browser use, and simple text entry; computer skills on a MacIntosh are a plus.

Legible handwriting is important, as are skills or talents in metaphysical fields such as card reading or palmistry, experience in customer service, experience in shipping, and basic knowledge of hand-work such as sewing or cooking.

-------------------------------------------------------
Extra Options for the Right Person
-------------------------------------------------------

If you are an experienced hand reader, tarot or cartomancy card reader, graphologist, astrologer, or psychic reader, we can set you up with a steady stream of in-shop readings as a source of extra income.

If you are computer-literate with a Macintosh in your home, we also can set you up to replicate templetized web pages in simple, foolproof HTML for extra income. Anyone with basic typing or secretarial skills can do this work. No special web design skills are needed.

Ability to use a digital camera and simple photo-manipulation software is a plus; you can train here and work from home on the web project, for extra income, if qualified and eager.

-------------------------------------------------------
Consider These Issues Before Applying
-------------------------------------------------------

If you have fragrance sensitivities or allergies to herbs, you probably will not be able to work here.

If listening to old blues and country music annoys you, you may find the work environment a challenge rather than a pleasure.

If terms like "folk magic," "metaphysical," or "occultism" are unfamiliar to you, please do not apply.

There is no smoking in the shop. Drinkers and drug users should not apply.

-------------------------------------------------------
Wages and Work Schedule
-------------------------------------------------------

Wage negotiable, depending on experience. Starting pay increases automatically after training is completed. (Training usually takes four months.)

The shop is open to callers seven days a week. Working on one weekend day is mandatory for this job.

Fun, friendly workplace.

Changes in the the air:

This coming week we are saying goodbye to two long-time Lucky Mojo employees:

Robin Petersen, our loyal and innovative Shop Manager, the woman who brought us from the dark ages of hand-written everything to bright-and-shiny-database everything, pioneered our Conjure Cookoffs, managed our Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshop programs, was a fun-loving Birthday Party organizer, and will always be Sophie's Best Auntie, is taking a medical leave. We wish you all the best, Robin, and our prayers and hopes are with you always.

Apollo Dark, our versatile order enterer, puller, shipper, and tarot card reader, has been developing his own career in the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers and Hoodoo Psychics, and has come to the point that a 9-to-5 job would limit his ability to work with his private clients, so, like the strong fledgling he is, he has launched himself into the world. Take flight, Apollo -- and soar!

Taking on Robin's former role as Shop Manager will be stalwart Heidi Simpson, our current Laboratory Manager, and moving into Heidi's old spot as Lab Manager will be long-time Lab Worker Alicia Cashaw. In you we trust, gals!

We have hired two delightful ladies to start on the Pulling and Packing Floor: Melissa Damasauskas and Angela Sharp-Sabatino. Welcome to the "Big Lucky Mojo Machine" (LOL!), Melissa and Angela.

Adios, Robin and Apollo, travel well, and remember you are always welcome at our door!

It has been an honor to know Robin Petersen. Robin, you taught me so much when I was at the apprenticeship.
You will be sorely missed. I pray you get well soon so you can come back to the Lucky Mojo.
I dearly love you Sister. My heart is breaking at the thought I won't see your beautiful face, hear your smart acre comments and see your cool tattoos again. But in my heart of hearts I know I'll see you again even if I have to go and find you myself. Not in the stalker sense of course but hopefully somewhere. Big hugs chica!!

The best of luck to you Dear Apollo! You are a rising star which I knew the second I saw you.
You're like a son to me. I thank-you for the help you have done for my family.

Congrats to the lovely Alicia! You are too cool for words. But you already know it and that's cool in itself. :)

Heidi I have yet to obtain one of your jackballs but plan to in the future, you are the best I've heard. :)

Welcome to the new members, Melissa and Angela. :)

Love, Susan

It's that time again: Dave Skarr is bidding us farewell, and we have a job opening at the shop!

Heads up -- a job opening at the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. in Forestville, California will be posted soon. It has not been released to the public or to any employment agency or online classified pages yet. It is a basic entry-level job in the shop, with opportunity for advancement into specialized areas and management, according to the interests of the worker and the duration of employment.

Tasks engaged may include laboratory work, customer service, order pulling, shelf stocking, packing and shipping, purchasing and receiving, inventory management, storage maintenance, lifting and carrying, data entry, database management, herb gardening, vegetable gardening, and garden railway construction and operations. Graduates of my course are always preferred, as are readers and rootworkers whose family traditions include the practice of hoodoo. (Non-graduates, if hired, are required to take the course and graduate.)

We are a drug and alcohol free shop and our hours are 9 - 5 daily; the position is for 5 days a week, including at least one weekend day. Note that this is not a candle ministry position, as Missionary Independent Spiritual Church is a separate entity, located next to the shop, but through a cooperative arrangement, the Lucky Mojo offers gifted employees the opportunity to clock out and perform onsite readings for walk-in and telephone clients at MISC during work hours, at a higher hourly wage than earned in the shop.

If this position sounds interesting to you, please familiarize yourself with the location of Forestville, California (Wikipedia will help) and wait until the job opening is announced on November 18, 2013, then get an application form, and turn it in swiftly.

Our motto: "Hippie Owned, Protestant Work Ethic Operated."
