* Be a stickler for details. We’re obsessed with making every part of the Giving Gifts experience perfect. You’ll notice and take action on anything that doesn’t meet our very high standards and bring your great ideas for how we can continue to make things better.

* Run a tip-top shop. There are millions of little details that make a successful shop flow, and you’re on top of it all. We expect a lot from our staff and you're excited to help make the Giving Gifts store the best ever. You’re a highly-effective communicator who knows how to follow-up to get things done.

* Be part of a rock star team. We pride ourselves on hiring great people who work well together. You’ll be in frequent communication with the business owner, Lisa. Everyone works together to share learnings, celebrate successes, troubleshoot problems and drive Giving Gifts to become a little better every day.
