Thank you for taking the time to consider joining our team!

If you are interested, please send us an email and answer the following questions:

This position is one we generally consider entry-level. What interests you about that kind of move?

This position is responsible for basic admin work, like job costing in Quickbooks, keeping receipts and hard copies of files organized, and assembling many different physical binders for things like safety regulations, insurance audits, and payroll. That work on its own fills up the job, and there’s not much room for expanding the role. How does this line up with what you’re looking for?
