Thank you,

Barb Mendoza, Owner

P.S. This is not a corporate type of structured job. I am an entrepreneurial small business owner.  I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and contributing to the growth of the business.

With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. I’m a very positive, upbeat person and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate!
