Something To Note: We are still a very small business. Working in a small business means that no two days are ever the same and we have a very "all hands on deck" mentality. We all perform tasks that are outside the scope of our job descriptions everyday. Sometimes you are going to have to clean a bathroom, fix a printer issue or rearrange the store shelves. Maybe even all on the same day. Nothing is off the table, and you need to know that going in!
