Event Associate, part time
Company Description

 

Foundry Vineyards (est. 2003) and Pét Project Wines are dedicated to the creation of finely-crafted low intervention, 100% organic wines that express the unique terroir of their vineyard. The award-winning wines are created with a combination of estate-grown fruit from the Walla Walla Valley and thoughtfully sourced fruit from throughout Washington State. Pét Project, Foundry Vineyard’s sister label, specializes in organic, naturally sparkling, zero/zero wines.

Job Description

Foundry Vineyards is looking to hire an enthusiastic, friendly, and engaging individual to staff private and public events at the Walla Walla tasting room. Teamwork, a sense of humor, and the ability to maintain a positive attitude after a long, late event is vital for success in this position. No bad attitudes here!

 

 The Event Staff provide a high level of customer service and hospitality to our customers, in addition to sharing product knowledge and enthusiasm for Foundry Vineyards wines. In addition to a tasting room, we rent out our space for private events like birthdays, private dinners, rehearsal dinners, weddings, and concerts. Events Associates will be on-site from start to finish with duties such as coordinating with renters, event set-up and break-down, problem-solving, and wine pouring, all with the intention of executing a perfect event. If desired and based on availability, the opportunity to pick up shifts in the tasting room is an option but not required. The ideal candidate LOVES interacting with all kinds of people.

We are a boutique, family run winery with a small but mighty team. We rely on each other to make sure things get done, and we all must be flexible. There is nothing more important to our team than dedication to exceptional customer service, and going the extra mile for co-workers and guests alike.

  • Assist the Event Coordinator with any delegated tasks

  • Help execute the event's timeline

  • Set up and break down the venue, including setting up tables, chairs, linens, the bar, moving furniture, washing glassware, emptying trash, mopping, and general cleaning.

  • Serve beverages at the bar and be available on the floor for assistance

  • Help coordinate with vendors, including caterers, musicians, and photographers

  • Accommodate client requests while keeping a positive attitude

  • Other duties as needed

What we’re looking for: 
  • Prior catering, restaurant, or customer service experience is a plus but not required. 

  • A successful candidate will be able to listen, interpret, and execute the supervisor’s requests and goals quickly.

  • Eye for detail – you’re observant and understand that the little details make the difference.

  • A passion for creating connections with different kinds of people and an affinity for making folks feel right at home.

  • Adaptability and flexibility – you recognize that things happen, and you can calmly troubleshoot issues. 

  • Reliable. Ability to be flexible with the work schedule.
