Thank you for your interest in joining the Harbor Creamery Crew!
We are committed to creating a team environment in our ice cream shop, so we strive to hire people who fully understand what it takes to become a long-term and dedicated member of our staff. Though, the ice cream business can be extremely busy in the summer months, and we occasionally add staff to cover the extra volume of customers during July and August, in general, our goal is to hire people for year-round employment.
If you are a self-starter who is friendly, outgoing, dedicated, and reliable, we would be happy for you to submit an application for a position on our Crew. An unwavering sense of humor and a willingness to smile for an entire 5 to 6-hour shift is a must :) We also ask that applicants have the ability to work day, evening, and weekend shifts.
For those students under 16 years old and interested in applying – Massachusetts’ Child Labor Laws prevent us from scheduling you to work more than a 3-hour shift on school nights, so afternoon/evening shifts in our shop will not be possible for you during the school year. We tend to stay open until 8:00, 9:00 or even 10:00pm depending on the time of year, and our shifts run 4, 5 or 6-hours in length. Due to these restrictions, we are unable to hire anyone under the age of 16. Please consider applying once you turn 16. Until then, stop by and introduce yourself so that we can get to know you.
A few things to keep in mind when applying for a position on our Crew:
We think scooping ice cream is fun but it is also hard work. Your scooping arm gets a serious workout and might even ache at the end of your shift.
You really, really, really need to enjoy interacting with people. Being friendly, outgoing, and conversational is an absolute must in customer service and we take this requirement very seriously when we hire. If you are going thru a moody and dark teenager phase, we’d like you to apply after you outgrow that stage. Thanks ! [please refer back to our requirement of having "an unwavering sense of humor .." when reading this last sentence. ] ;)
Please be available for at least one day, one night, and one weekend shift per week throughout the summer. Employees will also need to commit to being available on holidays (Patriot’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day), and Yankee Homecoming week.
In keeping with our goal of creating a team environment, all employees are equally responsible for completing all tasks necessary in the day to day operations of our ice cream shop. Being physically able to carry heavy, 3 ½ gallon buckets of ice cream up and down a flight of stairs is required. Cleaning floors, emptying trash barrels, refilling supplies, and doing dishes (lots and lots of dishes!) are just some of the additional daily tasks that are part of the job description.
Now that you have a heard a bit about the requirements of a Harbor Creamery Crew member, we would love to have you fill out our employment application. Please download it here. Once you have filled it out, stop by the shop, in person, to drop it off and introduce yourself. We will have a look at your application and, if positions are available, we will contact you to set up an interview. If there are currently no positions available, we will reply by email to let you know that we will keep your application on file should a position open up. Either way, you will hear back from us so you are not left to wonder if we are currently hiring or not.
Thanks again for your interest in working at Harbor Creamery. We are looking forward to meeting you soon!
