Job Description

Big Top Candy Shop, the South Congress landmark and Austin's most famous confectionery, is NOW HIRING a General Manager. We're looking for someone with experience managing high-traffic retail or food service environments, whether you've got experience as a general manager, buyer, or shift lead. Come help us maintain this Austin landmark's designation as one of the most popular destinations in town.

You'll need to be outgoing, enthusiastic, upbeat, friendly, and charismatic. Experience in high-traffic retail or food service establishments is a must, and you'll need to fit in well with Big Top's already amazing crew of confectionery vagabonds and soda jerk misfits, and be ready to take charge and help maintain Big Top's smooth operations and awesome merchandising. You'll be responsible for our iconic soda fountain operations and leading and scheduling an 8-person crew to keep the shop running smooth while maintaining our high-quality food service. You'll also join our Buyer in maintaining vendor relations, placing orders, displaying merchandise, and general shop upkeep.

Resumes are great, but if this sounds like the perfect fit for you, please SEND US A COVER LETTER telling us why you think you've got what it takes to help lead Big Top's candy revolution. Talk about your management experience, tell us a cool story about your favorite candy or your favorite pre-war blues performers. Do you have a weird talent? What is it??? Are you a world-class marimba player? Can you juggle knives? Balance a chair on your nose? We want to hear all about you!

We also need to know your mode of transportation and any scheduling conflicts you may have.

Drop a cover letter answering those questions and a message telling us a little about yourself!

Salary: $13.00-15.00/hour (depending on experience) + nice health benefits
