The Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley’s Public Science Center, offers a wide range of programs to the public, families, and school groups, serving over 170,000 visitors per year.
The Hall is seeking enthusiastic students to provide excellent customer service to visitors across all four of these service areas: Visitor Services Desk, Discovery Corner Toy & Book Store, National Geographic 3D Theater, and Bay View Café. Interact with children and adults to create a friendly environment. Handle all aspects of sales transactions. Welcome and inform visitors about the things they can do on their visit. Promote the purchase of Lawrence Hall of Science memberships. Stock and maintain the appealing presentation of diverse products in the retail spaces (store and café). Assist with the receiving of incoming merchandise, reconciliation of financial transactions, stockroom organization and other support and back-office duties. Duties will also include other tasks as assigned by a supervisor.
You must be a currently registered UC Berkeley undergraduate. We’re looking for people who are hard-working, organized, honest and friendly. We’re looking for self-motivated people who will work hard without being monitored and will find work to do if none has been assigned. The ability to work closely with others in cooperation is also vital; desired team-oriented skills include assertive question-asking, good listening, clear communication, and flexibility. Willingness and ability to interact with a diverse public is a must. Experience working in retail is preferred but not necessary. You must be bondable and will be fingerprinted by the UC Police Department. The software most commonly used in our department is Excel, Word, Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop, and Booklog (a point-of-sale and inventory management software). You must be able to work standing for up to 8 hours per shift and stock shelves from 6 inches to 6 feet high.
When you apply for the job please email a resume, your availability, and a brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications without a cover letter, or generic applications that do not address this job specifically will not be considered.
