WANTED: Production Elf


Production Elf


We are looking for someone to join our team of elves. You will be trimming pressed pieces, sanding greenware and glazed-wares, load & unload the kiln, and support your fellow elves if/when needed. Things are constantly changing with new orders coming in, so you will often be asked to switch shapes and/or stations and possibly change directions throughout the day. Some days you will sand, some days you will be trimming, or deburring, other days you will be washing, cleaning, or helping you other team members with what needs to be done in a specific time window. In essence, you will be more of a “floater” with a focus on sanding. This job involves a lot of physical labor and repetitive motions and you must be willing to get dirty and dusty on a daily basis. Come to work with the mindset that you will never stay clean. Wearing a mask is required at all times and is related to the position (not Covid). You must be able to take direction from other women and receive constructive criticism concerning the pieces being worked on. We really value a positive can-do attitude and someone who is a team player, focused and efficient, but detail-oriented with a light-hand because you will be working with extremely delicate items.
