Help!

Amai is busy and could really use the help of a few dedicated people. If you want to learn what it’s like to work in a commercial kitchen and help a new company get started, this is for you! Professional experience is great, but if you have a desire to learn about the baking world and are detail oriented I am willing to train. One thing to keep in mind before you say, yes, I want to make cookies! This is not glamorous work. In fact, you’ll be on your feet in a kitchen for 8 hours a day and potentially be covered in chocolate (if you’re anything like me). With that said, it is incredibly rewarding to make something and see it go out in the world to stores like Tavalon, Wild Lily Tea Room, Takashimaya and our next venture… Henri Bendel!

In particular, we need help in the following areas:

1) Part-Time Baker
You will be responsible for making delicious Amai cookies and brownies, including everything from measuring to baking to cutting. Must be available Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 8 am to 4 pm.

2) Part-Time Packaging Assistant
Help us put the packaged products together in its final, beautiful form. This role will also help with baking as needed. Must be available Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 8 am to 4 pm.

3) Part-Time Delivery Person
Spread the cookie love! You will bring Amai deliveries to stores around Manhattan. You should be strong enough to carry 15 pound boxes, and have a nice, smiling face that customers will be happy to see. A man/woman with a van would be great, or you must be able to drive a car we provide. Delivery schedule can vary depending on your availability.

Please send all resumes and questions to ineedsweets @ amainyc.com or call (212) 863-9630. I look forward to hearing from you all…
