Nine Below Employment Opportunity:
Entry Level Bartender
For questions, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nine Below seeks energetic, motivated, and organized bartenders to serve customers and help with various aspects of Nine Below’s operations. Qualified candidates should understand quality customer service, be quick on their feet with good problem-solving skills, be comfortable serving and mixing drinks from traditional and mobile bar stations, be able to multi-task, enjoy working as a member of a team, and be willing to assist with a variety of tasks including prepping, cleaning, and organizing as needed.
Nine Below offers an innovative team-based twist on indoor miniature golf. Customers make advance reservations in groups of 2-6 for a specific two-hour “tee time”. Upon arrival, they are assigned to their own 140-square foot plot of green. During the first 45 minutes of their round of play, customers create their own mini-golf hole using trap doors and unique obstacles. During the last hour of their round of play, they play a full 9-hole course of the other holes that the other teams in their same round have created. Every visit to Nine Below’s underground course is as different as the personalities of the golfers who build it. The only thing that stays the same is the bar… which, by the way, is fully stocked.
To offer a unique social environment in which people can explore their creativity through a team-based twist on a traditional miniature golf experience.
