We’ve grown a tad quicker than anticipated in the past few months, and I’m no longer the spring chicken I used to be–so we’re looking to hire! Check this page for either positions that are available, or temp work requests where you get paid by the hour.

Kinder Soaps’ Little Ray Of Sunshine

On the 6th of August 2012, we will be opening a little shop tucked away in a hole in the wall at Jaya 33! I am, of course, super excited at the prospect of having a proper place to finally meet and greet customers in person, so I’m on the lookout for someone who can be Kinder Soaps’ Little Ray of Sunshine to take care of the shop and more importantly, the people who walk into it. :)

Your duties would cover the following:

  • be happy! :D
  • meet and greet walk-in customers and attend to their queries and purchases,
  • answer basic email enquiries (99% of them will be in english), fulfill website orders and prepare packages for shipping via courier when there aren’t any walk-in customers around,
  • keep the shop looking pretty and neat,
  • do all you can to ensure that every person who walks out of the shop leaves with a smile, even if they don’t buy anything.
As with all other posts, I will personally guide you and provide whatever training is necessary, but ultimately I would like your own personality to colour our customers’ experiences with you and Kinder Soaps. I will definitely pop in the shop from time to time to see how you’re getting on, and to help out wherever necessary.

Wage rate

Full Time Position (one only, for now)

  • RM900 fixed salary per month
  • 10% commission on all in-shop sales

  • EPF and SOCSO (something else I will have to familiarize myself with)
  • Staff discount of 30% off all Kinder Soaps products
Part Time Positions
  • RM10 per hour worked (no more than 20 hours per week)
  • 10% commission on all in-shop sales

Work hours

Full Time Position

Part Time Positions

  • Available slots are from 11:30am till 4:30pm, everyday except Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Soap Tinkerers

Okay, I’ll admit that I couldn’t really think of a proper description for this job. :”>

You’ll be making our soaps pretty and presentable for customers by coming in to stamp them with our logo, putting the shrink wrapping machine to work to protect the soap, and labeling them. If you’ve got some muscle, you can also work on making the soap too. Perfect for people who love to work with their hands, are more of the quiet type (no need to handle customers here :p;), and just want a little break from routine.

Wage rate

I’m willing to offer RM15 per hour.

Work hours

There won’t be fixed hours for this since I churn out batches of soap only a few times a month. We’ll work from 9am-11am at my office space in Damansara Jaya on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays. When I need your help I will send you an email to check your availability – or you can just keep an eye out for work openings on our website (will be fixing up this feature within the coming month, fingers crossed).

    Hi Michelle,

    I was looking at your website under the career section and the Soap Tinkerer job caught my attention. I actually have a full time job on weekdays but I would love to have the chance to make (I’ve attended a basic class on CP soap making before) and decorate the soaps (with all those pretty colours!). I know that you only need a soap tinkerer for weekdays, but I just wanted to let you know that if you ever need an extra hand during the weekends, perhaps you can contact me and I’ll be more than happy to help!

    My contact details are as below:

    Hi michelle, keen and interested of your product, there are body shops located in the malls here in our city, but they are more on a capitalist side. We find that if we could use your product to sell here with a cause for our beleaguered neighbors in the province of iloilo. By the way i am here in Iloilo City, island of Panay, Philippines.
