Posted on February 18th, 2017 by Broadway Bicycle School
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 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 (start dates vary from early Feb to the start of April and full-time does not begin until April) 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.
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. We encourage people of color, LGBTQIA folks and women (including transwomen, nonconforming, and nonbinary folks) to apply.
