Broadway Bicycle School Hiring Mechanics For 2017

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 27

From Broadway

Web posting: http://broadwaybicycleschool.com/news/broadway-is-hiring-2/

About Broadway:

We’re a collectively run and locally owned bicycle shop that has been in
operation since 1972. A subset of workers own and democratically manage the
business. As a full-service bike shop, we both repair and sell new and used
bikes.  Our tools and space are also made available for rent, so folks can
come in and fix their own bikes by themselves or with one-on-one assistance
from a mechanic. In the evenings we offer classes on the topic of bicycle
maintenance and repair.  Several times throughout the year, we provide on
location mechanical services for local business and organizations. Also we
are proud to offer a $15 per hour starting wage.

Walking into a bicycle shop for the first time can be an intimidating
endeavor for many, which is why Broadway strives to create a welcoming
environment for all persons that come through our door.  We encourage women
(including transwomen), nonbinary folks, and people of color to apply.  It
is NOT a prerequisite that you have previous shop experience, only that you
have a passion for bicycles and working on them.  We will provide the
necessary training in all aspects of the position.

Job Description:

We are hiring for a bicycle mechanic whose responsibilities also include
customer service and sales. This is a full-time (~40) hours per week from
February – April 2017 through the end of October 2017 with the expectation
to work one and sometimes two weekend days. This is a fast paced work
environment that often requires workers to jump back and forth between the
roles of mechanic and salesperson many times over the course of a shift.
Employees are hired “at-will” but due to the seasonal nature of the
business there is a period which usually begins at the start of November
when little to no hours will be available.

If you are interested in applying please fill out the 2017 Broadway Bicycle
School Application found on our website and drop it by the shop or email it
to [email protected]broadwaybicycleschool.com
