Thank you for your interest in working at Flyleaf Books!
We don’t typically hire seasonal help—summer, winter, etc.—but we’re always taking applications and when a spot opens up we go to the applications on file first. We are looking for employees who are able work nights and weekends on a consistent and regular basis, and flexible availability is a plus.
Bookselling is a customer-oriented, detail-driven, and sometimes physically demanding job, as a bookseller spends most of the day on their feet. Employees must be adaptable and self-starting—the nature of the job requires booksellers to take on any number of roles depending on need.
We receive advance copies of new books, and employees are expected to read these forthcoming titles and be comfortable recommending books to customers of all ages—adults, young adults, and children. We know that staff members have individual reading tastes, and we encourage you to read what you like, but we also expect our staff members to read beyond their typical comfort zones so as to better serve a variety of customers.
Below are application questions. Please allow a few days for us to read your answers before we reply. If you have any questions please feel free to email us at jamie (at) flyleafbooks.com.
