Job Overview

The Production Assistant role has been created to fill in any and all gaps where extra assistance is needed across cutting, sewing, pressing, packing and shipping the handmade baby clothing The Bailey Baby Boutique Co sells. While it is always appreciated to have someone with strong sewing skills, we will also be providing considerable training for this position, so therefore it will not be mandatory.

  • An excellent drive to learn and grow
  • The ability to accept feedback (both positive and constructive)
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong customer service skills
  • The ability to work under direct supervision
  • Initiative and the ability to self motivate

Responsibilities and Duties

  • Constructing garments using a variety of sewing machines
  • Cutting fabrics to specifications of sewing patterns provided
  • Packaging finished garments and reviewing orders for shipping
  • Shipping orders using the Shopify interface
  • Pressing garments once construction is completed
  • Photographing garments as a flat lay to use for promotional purposes
  • Aiding with customer service requests received by the business

Working Conditions

The Employee is required to work in person at the industrial studio space in Waterloo.
