We have a passion for piercing and jewelry.
We want someone who is great with people, is a team player with a good attitude and understands that client service is about much more than a fake smile and a "May I help you?" Our standards are high and the right person for this job will see that as a good thing and as a challenge, not something to be scared of.
We currently have an opening for a piercer at our studio. In addition to piercing clients, this detail oriented customer service position involves answering jewelry and piercing-related questions as well as helping clients pick out jewelry for new and existing piercings. You will check IDs, help clients with paperwork and ring the client up for purchases. Your primary focus will be customer service, making our clients feel comfortable and being as helpful as possible while you pierce them.
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. We are looking for a team player with the right attitude, not a specific look!
You must have at least two years full time piercing experience in a studio and have good hygiene. This position will be four to five days/week (35-40 hours/week). Must be available nights and weekends (the more open your schedule is, the better.) Previous face-to-face customer service experience is mandatory, as you will assist at the counter also. Did we mention that you need to be friendly and outgoing?
Basically, we want someone who is great with people, is a team player with a good attitude and understands that client service is about much more than a fake smile and a "May I help you?" Four professional references and two personal references required. Our standards are high and the right person for this job will see that as a good thing and as a challenge, not something to be scared of.
Health insurance, paid sick time and jewelry discount perks. Pay will vary depending on experience.
Please note: At this time we are open to evaluating applications who are apprentice level.

Questions About Apprenticeships
Weekly we receive inquiries concerning apprenticeships with HALO Piercing & Jewelry. While we are pleased to see such avid interest in the industry, we are unable to accommodate an apprentice at this time. A piercing apprenticeship is an intensive process that requires an immense amount of time and effort on behalf of not only the apprentice, but the senior piercers as well.
Aspiring body piercers should be First Aid/CPR certified and should attend an OSHA blood borne pathogens training class before beginning their training in sterilization, disinfection, cross-contamination, and other health and safety issues. Finally, an apprentice must devote several months to the close observation of all procedures/piercings before spending a minimum of one year in full-time supervised training. Unfortunately, because we are so busy at this time we would not be able to provide the intensive one-on-one attention and training that any aspiring body piercer deserves.
