Employment Application

A business can grow no farther then its employees have grown in their own lives.

     This being true, we are looking for individuals who have matured enough to become self-managed, disciplined and have clear goals and a hunger for personal growth. 

     Work here can be “fun” but our goal of impeccable customer service requires that our customers have more “fun” and get it first.  To achieve this, you will be required to “happily’” take on the problems of our customers and effectively resolve them.  You will find this to be extremely demanding.  Strong memory skills, sensitivity to details and ability to juggle multiple tasks will be needed.  You will need to be quick witted, teachable and friendly, with a strong sense of humor.  If you have made a habit of serving yourself more than others, you will likely stay unsuccessfully employed.  Customers always come first!  This is our Vision!  Impeccable Customer Service that is… FAST, ACCURATE & FRIENDLY and is delivered in a CLEAN, PROFESSIONAL, ENVIRONMENT

Our (Managements) job is… To provide you with all the resources to achieve it.

Your job will be… To aggressively use those resources, to achieve our vision.

This application is long and thorough.  Hang in there; it is in your best interest to fill it out accurately.

Ken Kraft, once said, “The closest to perfection a person ever comes, is when they fill out a job application.

Applications containing any unanswered questions will not be considered for employment.  We do check references.
