Do you enjoy talking to folks and baking?

The Peppered Cupcake is always looking for cupcake enthusiasts to join its awesome team. Part-time and full-time positions with competitive pay as well as opportunities for growth within the company are available for individuals with a strong work ethic.

Who are we looking for?

  • We hire fun, smart, energetic, positive, honest team members.

  • You Must have EXCELLENT people and phone skills. This means you must enunciate and articulate with absolute confidence while working with our awesome customers.

  • Each team member Must be able to multi task exceptionally well. We are very detail oriented and would expect it to show in your job performance as you are not just baking and or boxing up cupcakes. You are "finishing" our end product and you must be capable of duplicating and learning every cake.

  • You must be able to work at both of our shops. Downtown and at Racine Commons next to UNCW and have reliable transportation.

  • We ask for 2 references from 2 former positions which will be contacted prior to offering a position.

DO NOT DROP OFF PAPERS W/O SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT. This position is about listening and following instructions. If you've made it this far, you're half way there.
