Bookkeeper – Data Entry
Bookkeeper – Data Entry Job Description
You don’t mind being asked to help unload a car or go on an errand or two. You’ve got some computer and WordPress knowledge, but are itching to learn more. You don’t mind working in an office and answering phones, making coffee and you can think on your feet.
You are detail orientated and keep great records. You are a fantastic multi-tasker and don’t need someone to hold your hand if you don’t know something. You’ll figure it out! You love working in several assets of a business because you want to learn as much as possible. You are great at managing supplies, you’ve got some data entry knowledge and love helping train and educate new staff.
Because you’re self-motivated, you don’t need someone checking up on you to make sure you’re always being productive. You’re not afraid to admit what you don’t know or ask for help from other staff. You take pride in your work and have a passion for what you do. You’re looking for full time work.
Primary Responsibilities Include:
Answering customer calls.
Making tags for incoming merchandise.
Scheduling and maintaining inventory.
Preparing statements and billing.
You’re the kind of person that loves engaging with other people: You’re never shy about talking to strangers. Smiling just comes natural to you! You always want to make a great impression on customers and make sure they feel welcome and taken care of. Manners are important to you both in face-to-face encounters and on the phone. In fact, juggling phone calls and the customer standing in front of you in a professional manner is a skill you’ve mastered. You’re never too busy to make sure a customer gets exactly what they need.
You’re computer savvy and have two years of register experience. Handling cash, making calculations and properly counting back change is no problem for you. You like keeping things tidy and will make sure that between customers you keep the register areas tidy and stocked with cashier supplies. Plus, you’re independently motivated: You don’t need someone reminding you about your daily duties.
You might have some gardening experience…but if you don’t then you at least have an interest in learning. You’re not afraid to be honest when you don’t know the answer and have no problem linking the customer up with sales staff that can help. You’re looking for a part time or full time job and are available to work weekends. Heat and rain don’t bother you because you prefer being outdoors.
Are you inexperienced on the register but have a passion for wanting to work at an independent garden center? Tell us your story and we’ll happily consider your application!
