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 broadway@broadwaybicycleschool.com

Boston Bikes Hiring For Bicycle Instructors

Written by Boston Biker on Aug 21

two cool jobs from Boston bikes.

————-

 

Boston Bikes employs a small team of part-time, somewhat seasonal employees, primarily for Community Cycling Programs. Once you’re a part of our team, you’ll have opportunities to support all of our projects.

We are actively seeking Cycling Instructor candidates for September-October 2014. 

Cycling Instructors (actively hiring):

You don’t need to be a bike expert: An affinity for teaching, youth development, and a relentless work ethic are much more important. Reliability and professionalism are expected at all times. We’re looking for people who take personal pride in their work, regardless of whether you’re teaching a classroom or loading a truck. Work happens primarily during day time hours on weekdays (during the school day), with some night and weekend events. Applicants should live in the City of Boston or anticipate living in Boston before beginning employment.

Cycling instructors work as part of a team to teach cycling skills and safety to kids and teens in the Boston Public Schools as part of our Youth Cycling Program, which serves over 5,000 youth per year. Our program visits a school for two weeks with a fleet of bikes and helmets. On the first day, instructors lay the groundwork for safe riding including helmet fitting, signaling, and safe biking behaviors during a classroom-based workshop. The rest of the time, instructors lead on-the-bike activities and games to reinforce safety lessons and to expose kids to the fun of riding a bike. Cycling instructors also support our Roll it Forwardprogram by leading safety workshops and fitting recipients for helmets and bikes.

This is a fun job, but without a doubt, it is highly physical work. Our instructors and mechanics are constantly lifting bikes, loading trucks, and climbing stairs. If hired, you will be expected to jump in, learn quickly, and be ready to get your hands dirty. Training is provided, but the ability to learn on-the-job is just as important.

To apply, send a resume and a short message of interest to Jenny Duquette. Please include an overview of when you would be able to work and how many hours you seek. Resumes should focus on teaching experience, youth development or early-childhood development, and bicycling experience (if applicable). Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a response to all applicants. CORI background checks will be performed on candidates that advance past the interview.
