Luthier 02.06.15

(Musical Instrument Repair Careers) Permanent link

 Johnson String Instrument

 

 

My name is Emily, and I manage the Rental Repair Workshop at Johnson String Instrument in Boston.  I wanted to let you know that we have an opening in the shop, so if you have any students who might be interested, you might let them know!   I suspect you might be familiar with us, but it's a good entry-level job for a new luthier looking to get some experience.  We recently promoted one of our rental staff to our restoration shop, which is why we're hiring.

 

Please feel free to pass along my contact information; I'd be happy to answer any questions your students might have!

   

 

The first three months is considered a new employee's "trial period" (it's a paid trial period).  Then we evaluate at the end of the three months to determine if the employee is a good fit.  Coming right out of school, we start people at $14/hr, but if the employee shows tremendous improvement in the first three months we would certainly consider a raise at that time.  

 

The job comes with a benefits package including health insurance through Blue Cross, dental insurance through Guardian, as well as a 401k with matching (after the first full year of employment), as well as paid vacation time (after the first full year of employment), and paid sick/personal time.  Employees also get a discount on most (all?) product at JSI - including instrument set up parts (our employees tend to make use of this!).

 

It is a Monday-Friday gig, 8 hours/day, though I'm flexible about what time employees come in.  We have a few people who come in early around 6:30, and some who start later around 9.   The shop is in Waltham MA.  It is a great crew of people - we currently have four full time luthiers, and are looking for a fifth.  The atmosphere is happy and upbeat, pretty relaxed, but boy do these guys work hard and get things done!

 

Of course I can't make any promises around this, but.... when our restoration shop (the fancy shop) is hiring, they first look to the rental shop to see if anyone is ready to move up.  We've promoted a handful of people this way since I've been managing the shop.  So there is room for growth here at JSI.

 

Thanks again for passing this along, I really appreciate it!  Truthfully, I've gotten into the habit of leaving my job post up on the JSI website, because we do tend to experience a bit of turnover.  So I'm always accepting resumes at this point.  If you happen to think of it, if any students ask, they can just check our website and get in touch!
