Since 2009 Treats for Chickens has made the goods that help forward thinking chicken owners keep their flocks healthy with our Certified Organic and Non-GMO treats, vitamin supplements and herbal bedding. To learn more about the company please visit treatsforchickens.com
Here at Treats for Chickens we believe that the best individuals come with varied backgrounds and experiences, and value work ethic, problem-solving skills, intellectual curiosity, and a positive attitude more than a specific degree. In keeping with these ideals, we are a second chance employer.
What we DO require is a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and the ability to hustle. Jobs at Treats for Chickens are not strictly desk jobs. We hustle hard – often on our feet, up and down stairs – for a significant portion of each day. And we have fun while we do it. We help out in other areas as needed, so flexibility is extremely important.
About the role: We’re looking for a highly motivated, over the top, Swiss Army Knife individual to assist the founder and CEO. This is not a typical administrative or management position, so please read this thoroughly to see if the position would be a good fit before applying.
The ideal candidate will be extremely organized, have great communication skills (both written and oral), be self-motivated, and love doing a little of a whole lot. To be a great fit, you’ll need to thrive in a changing environment where your daily activities change. You’ll need to be intellectually curious, have exceptional problem-solving skills and be someone who goes over and above the required expectation. You’ll need to be able to spot potential obstacles before it becomes an issue, find a solution quickly, efficiently and with a great attitude.
If you’re a super organized, detail-oriented person who likes to think three steps ahead at all times, this could be the perfect position for you! You’ll need spot-on accuracy and the ability to self-manage priorities to ensure tasks are done well and on time. We can’t stress how important attention to detail is in this role.
You’ll need to be forward thinking to be able to anticipate the needs of your role so Management doesn’t have to communicate every task; your job is to lighten and relieve the load.
This position will require some light math, weight conversions and percentages. Experience in Food and Beverage, Food Production, Retail/e-commerce and/or Manufacturing preferred but not required.
As a small business, we aren’t often afforded the opportunity to analyze a situation for a long period of time to find the best solution. We are looking for someone who can use excellent judgement and problem-solving skills in tandem with Management to keep the company moving along smoothly.
You’ll be communicating daily with Management when they are in the shop or away, as well as with Manufacturing and Production. You’ll also need to be prompt with response times.
Physical Demands and Warehouse Environment: Treats for Chickens operates in a drafty warehouse. We function as a manufacturing facility. The warehouse is open space that can be warm or cold and dusty from grain and dried herbs. Our workspace is pretty much the opposite of most office environments you might be accustomed to. Business casual – no heels.
Treats for Chickens is an equal opportunity employer and we greatly value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We are a masked-up business, in compliance with state public health protocols.
If you think you would be a good fit with us please:
apply via email [firstname.lastname@example.org] and provide the following:
- An opening letter telling us about yourself and why you feel this is a good fit for you.
- Your updated resume.
We are hiring immediately and look forward to meeting you. A phone interview will take place first followed by an in-person/on-site and fully masked interview.
