What NLB seeks in ALL Collaborators

We seek great humans!! Who you are and how you do things is used as a higher criteria than; what education level you may or may not have, what you have or have not done in the past, what job experiences you may or may not have had, or what you currently are or not doing. Almost everything can be learned, if one chooses to do so. If you feel that you could potentially learn almost anything, then we want to hear form you!

NLB collaborators are not boxed in. You will definitely have your responsibilities, but you’ll be knowledgable of, over time trained in, and able to overlap in almost any aspects of NLB. How you push, create, improve, and innovate your role, and in-turn NLB, is up to you!

Being a collaborator at NLB is not the same as wanting to Shop at NLB. Two very different things! Workers want to shop, but not all shoppers want to work. With generally more responsibilities, more autonomy, more challenging work, and generally above average pay, you gotta buy into Naked Local Bulk and want to be a part of it’s success, which in-turn will be your success!

If you are seeking a J O B, please seek out other opportunities as NLB is a unique brick-n-mortar food market start-up that will definitely not be your typical Food Market working experience. If you are up for a potentially very challenging wild ride, with a risk-taking fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants mentality, where you will have the ability and are encouraged to engage in all aspects of business, and want to be a part of getting this off the ground, we want to hear from you! 


TO BE considered
Please fill in the form below with:
- In the first box: Your Phone number
- In the second box: Let us know a bit about yourself, what interests you in becoming a collaborator at NLB, what (if any) sustainable or zero waste practices you might be undertaking in your life, and why a sustainable food source is needed in the Pittsburgh region.

*DO NOT put your name, or paste in a resume at all in your application. Your application should simply be a few paragraphs, and your phone number. This is an experiment seeking the best possible blind application process. By doing this we are attempting to minimize conscious and unconscious bias, judgement, and discrimination on everything; resume history, if and/or where one went to school, a persons name, gender, race, where one lives, online trolling… amongst many other hiring and recruiting failures.

If we do find an interest in what you have to say, we will give you a call or text to set up an in person interview. From there, all the standard info, like a resume, can be passed along.

**Please Note: we might inquire about drug and alcohol problems, crime convictions, and smoking (among other things), that could pose an issue to customers and fellow collaborators at NLB. NLB does not conduct pre-employment drug screens. But reserves the right to randomly drug test a person if a situation arises where it is perceived that a collaborator is showing signs of abuse, or other issue arise that could prompt such decisions. This could result in immediate termination. While NLB is 100% for the legalization of pot, we are at the same time 100% against any and all smoking (cig, vape, joint, cigar, etc), and tobacco/chew use of any kind while working at NLB. If you are selected to be brought on by NLB, a criminal, and potentially more extensive background check could be done. The plain fact of having been in jail, or having a criminal record, in an of itself does not disqualify anyone.

If we think you could potentially be a good fit, we will reach out to you with next steps!

Thanks for the application. Now...go outside!
