    Organization: CompostNow

    About this position:

    Position Responsibilities

    • Responsible for supporting drop-off location functions at the Hyde Park Farmers’ Market Sunday from 9:30 am–1:00 pm
    • Arrive before the market begins to set-up the station (by 8:30 am on Sunday's)
    • Remain at the station for the duration of the market, and return the full vehicle after the market ends
    • Ensure all equipment is in the vehicle (bags, lids, bins, etc.) before departing for the drop-off station
    • Record each member as collected, missing or damaged on the drop-off list
    • Inspect each clean bin to ensure no residue is visible when exchanging bins

    • Engage with members and be prepared to answer questions
    • Report any accidents or issues with the vehicle immediately
    • Safely follow all traffic laws
    • Follow all market protocols

    Our mission at CompostNow is to grow the composting movement by making it easy for our members to divert food waste and enrich soils. By hauling food scraps and delivering compost, we do the dirty work for them and ensure success. To build the movement, it is imperative to keep our members happy and ensure they’re receiving exceptional value from our commercial and residential services.

    People work at CompostNow because we give people the benefit of the doubt, we strive for operational excellence, and we treat people as adults. We hold high expectations of ourselves and one another. We choose to grind through with the right people rather than have it easier with people who don’t share the same standards.

    A quote from a former Onsite Operations team member: “I would describe CompostNow's work culture as a pretty employee centered company, concerned and interested in the people that work for them. I think CompostNow puts a lot of effort into making people feel valued. The pay was very supportive as a living wage. The way that Managers make it clear that they always have time to hear what you want to say, it definitely goes down as one of the places that I’ve gotten to work at where the employer doesn’t just care about their bottom line, which was really nice."

    Pay starts at $16/hr, schedule is roughly 6 hours per week, 8 am to 2 pm (for every Sunday market).

    Requirements

    • A valid driver's license and driving record can pass our insurance standards for driving duties
    • Experience driving work place vehicles is a plus (you'll be driving a Sprinter Van to and from the market).
    • Physical strength and ability to lift up to 50 pounds
    • Excellent organizational and time management skills
    • Exceptional interpersonal skills
    • Willing and able to spend most of the day on your feet (walking, standing, etc.)
    • Not squeamish: can be around food scraps and smell of decomposition throughout the day
    • Detail oriented, takes pride in a good day’s work and contributing to a team environment
    • Self motivated worker, proactive in identifying and taking ownership of work needing to be completed

    Benefits

    • Be a part of a small team where your contribution has a big impact
    • Achieve a healthy level of exercise while working!
    • Work in a friendly, respectful environment. Being treated as an individual person and not a number in a large corporation
    • Know that your work directly impacts the well-being and sustainability of your community
    • Opportunity for growth and increased opportunities within a startup environment
    • Free CompostNow service & swag
