Shoe Repairman needed in Denver
We are an extremely busy shoe repair shop located in downtown Denver, and i do mean extremely busy. I’m looking for someone who has experience but I am also willing to train the right person if they are serious about learning this trade. Dependability is a must!!! I am a 4th generation cobbler, in the United states, was a team member of the Sole Factor tour through Vibram, and have 35+ years of experience doing shoe repair. So I have a lot of experience, with which, to teach someone the ins and outs. What I don’t have is time to waste on someone who is not prepared to work hard. Attention to detail, an eagerness to learn, reliability, punctuality, and able to treat my customers well are required. Like I said, experience is preferred but I am willing to be flexible in that area. This is a full time position and 5 days a week. I have 3 other employees and we all stay busy. If you believe you would be a good fit call me at the shop at the shop and we’ll set up a time to talk. 303.623.3838
