WHICH CAREER WILL YOU CHOOSE?

 

There and Back Cafe in Downtown Sacramento (around the corner from our bookstore at 1020 11th Street, Cathedral Square) is looking to expand our day shifts and also build a Friday evening staff. Our space brings our community together for a safe place to enjoy fandom, cosplay (if you’d like), exploration of new games (or finding people to play with). We’ll occasionally hold game tournaments, and patrons will be able to “rent a staff member” who can quickly teach them how to play a game.

Starting wage will be commensurate with your experience, and you will earn tips as well. Any tips that are added to sales will be split among staff members working the same shift. Benefits include:

  • 30% discount on food, beverages, games, and merchandise at There and Back Cafe and Capital Books
  • Six paid holidays (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas day)
  • Accrued sick and vacation per company policy

 

Join our team in a fun atmosphere!
