Small Business Saturday & Buy Local Week

Buy 1 Get 1

Buy one piercing, get one free. One piercing is all you really want? Bring a friend and let them get the other piercing. $20 off Surface Dermals. Jewelry not included with piercings and must be purchased at time of piercing to receive the special. Jewelry is included with Surface Dermals, limited to stock on hand. No rain checks. Not valid with other offers. Free Piercing and discounted Surface Dermals must be performed on 11/26/2011.


It's that time of year again! A common sight on Black Friday is hordes of people lined up in front of chain stores with wallets open wide, looking for terrific deals. Put on your "local economist" glasses and you may see it in a new light: the pipelines of chain store commerce pumping all of that money out of the communities made up of the hard-working people that earned it, right back to their corporate headquarters. But hey, cheap gadgets!

So what can you do? How about skipping the long lines and spending your money on unique items from local businesses! Not only will your gifts be fresh and original, you will be supporting the local businesses that in turn support our community.

We have an opening for a counter person in our piercing/jewelry area. The position involves answering jewelry questions and some piercing-related questions as well as helping clients pick out jewelry for new and existing piercings. This job is all about customer service, making our clients feel comfortable and being as helpful as possible.  Also, lots cleaning.

Previous knowledge about piercings and jewelry may be helpful, but it isn't a requirement. We will provide you the training you need to do the job and we will let your fantastic personality and customer service skills to do the rest.

You must be able to retain information, pay close attention to detail, multi-task and remain super friendly in an environment that can be fast-paced and a little stressful at times.

Enthusiasm and interest in piercing are an obvious plus, but you do not have to be heavily pierced or tattooed to get this job. We are looking for someone with the right attitude and not someone with a specific look.

Details and requirements
  • This position will be for 4-5 days/week (25-35 hours/week)
  • Hours will vary each week and occur between 10:45am to 8:30pm. 
  • Must be available nights and weekends (the more open your schedule is, the better).
  • Previous face-to-face customer service experience is mandatory (2 years preferred).
  • Did we mention that you need to be friendly and outgoing?
  • This position will not lead to a piercing apprenticeship.
  • Pay will vary depending on experience. 
  • If you ask questions in the comment section that have already been answered here, you've almost guaranteed you won't be considered. Remember that thing we mentioned before about "attention to detail"....
Basically, we want someone who is great with people, has a good attitude and understands that customer’s service is about much more than a fake smile and a "May I help you?". Our standards are high, the right person for this job will see that as a good thing and as a challenge, not something to be scared of.

How to Apply

In order to make the process easier for everyone involved, including you, we've established a few guidelines:
  • Bring in a resume and fill out an application (should take about 30 minutes).
  • Resumes & applications can be turned in during normal business hours (you're on the Internet, you can figure out what those hours are).
  • Applications that are emailed or mailed to us will not be considered.

Sunday, September 4, 2011

We will be open Labor Day, 
the 5th - Noon to 6pm
However, on Sunday 9/11 
we will be closed in remembrance 
of those who were lost.

Lucky 13

13 years ago today many things happened.  Glen was rocking to Everybody 
(Backstreet's Back) by the Backstreet Boys and Kelsey was re-discovering the 
comedic genius of Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer.  1998 was a stellar 
year, the most memorable event for both of us, was the establishment of Halo 
Precision Piercing, llc.
 
While $1.15 per gallon of gas is a thing of the past, Halo is still here, 13 
years later, our Lucky 13.  Still embracing the philosophy that quality 
jewelry, immaculate environment, and courteous staff are what make Halo 
gleam like the western setting sun in the Arizona state flag.
 
We would love to thank all our employees over the years, from those that 
made life interesting, to those that, well, made life VERY interesting....
you all have a very special place in our hearts, for being part of what 
Halo is today.
 
We would also like to thank our friends, our family, our manufacturers...
yes, ours.... many of you have become more than friends. You are truly a part 
of our family.  Thank you for all your support, for helping us when we needed it,
for making that sacrifice, for that we are indebted to you.
 
Last but not least, our clients...what can we say, you have been with us 
since the beginning.  We have shared your birthdays, we have embraced your 
rites of passage, we have tried our very best to be there for you.  For that 
we thank you.
 
While back in 1998, Bill and Monica were heavy news....Halo was just a 
little shop on the corner of Central and Camelback.  13 years, later, Bill 
and Monica are not news, Halo is still on the corner of Central and 
Camelback and still abiding by the same philosophy that they started 
with.
